Seminar Creations

In May & June - I was working on projects for TAC's (The Angel Company) Annual Seminar. Here a couple of them -

First is a box I decorated (was on clearance - later wished I had more than one) and filled with yummy Dove dark chocolates. The box was just white, I used a couple of colors of palette ink pads (they are oval) and touched them directly to the box (I love this effect, and it's SO easy). Then stamped, colored, matted, stickled, pop-dotted and added flowers...and Voila...a creation I didn't want to give up. This was my "prop swap" for the Manager's Luncheon.

Second, is a 6x6 scrapbook page I made up for swapping with others. After my first Seminar - I decided that all of my 6x6 pages would include photos...it's not a requirement, but it looks finished and much nicer.

I used our TAC Scarlet, Brown & Kraft cardstocks; assorted bitty blossoms, Flourishes & All Things of Nature stamp sets; Burnt Umber Palette ink.

These beautiful tulips are located in my beloved state of Washington - there are fields & fields of tulips every April. I look forward to possibly seeing it again in 2009. These photos are scans from years ago when I used film photography.


Sorry about the yellow cast in the photos - I tried to block some of the excess light and it backfired on my pictures.
