New Release at Inktegrity!

Good Morning! Happy Monday! I am thrilled that I have my kids home with me one more day today, but I think everyone is hoping that they can go back to school tomorrow. The roads are getting pretty good, the buses should be OK. They've had an 11 day weekend!

Joni with Inktegrity has done it again! She's releasing a new digi-set today. I just love this image because it's the epitome of us all.

I don't know about you, but I love notebooks. I have 2 or 3 by my computer at all times. I use them to write down notes or draw sketches that I want to try. I find they are very useful when I've figured out measurements or come up with some tips to simply jot them down in my notebook. So when Joni sent us this image, it was perfect for one of my notebooks. I've had one sitting on my table for months begging to be dressed up.

I used paper from a Basic Grey pad that I've had for ages. Joni purposely left her dress plain to allow for paper piecing. The base is Sahara Sand. Then I printed her on Neenah card stock and colored her with Copics. I also printed her out on the patterned paper for her dress. I used the ribbon slide stamp from DRS Designs to finish it off. It is paper pieced as well.

Let me give you a tip on how you can accomplish this printing without having to print twice. If you haven't seen my tutorial, you can click here to view that. I have developed another way to do it and will do an updated tutorial soon.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I do enjoy your visits.
