Tuesday Morning Sketches #693

Hi you! Thanks so mu for stopping by!

 I hope you had a great week and it is already time for another Tuesday Morning Sketches favorite sketch from last year. It was one by yours truly and chosen by Melissa. You can see the first go round here Tuesday Morning Sketches #681.  

I notice that I tend to add a few little snippets in my sketches - I’m sure it is because I love using little scraps of everything like on this one I used 2 washi tapes, patterned paper that I watercolored to color and crinkle it a little and then of course a little ribbon.  Maybe that is to justify the jars & jars I have of little ribbon scraps.

Our team and you all are just so darn creative I’m constantly amazed at the wonderful creations you come up with so be sure to check it all out and join us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #692

Good mornin’!! (or what ever it is for you at the moment!)

Gosh I had fun with this sketch #692 from Tuesday Morning Sketches!  We are still sharing our 2022 favorites, this is Donna’s pick #659 by Melissa.  It is just so perfect for this alcohol ink background I made when I was playing around a couple weeks ago.

If I can snatch anymore time I would love to make several of these out of the sheets I made because it gives the opportunity to have a nice big swatch of the fun marbled alcohol ink to be showcased. All it is is the ink dropped all over a piece of Yupo paper and then let dry.  So enjoyable!

Last time Debbie used her Fastenater for the 3 metal elements and I was so jealous that I didn’t lol!  You can see TMS #659 here.  Reason I was is because I had never even used mine and I’ve had it over 10 years!! So finally I used it for this card and I really should have practiced first because they are a little wonky.  

As always I really do appreciate you stopping by and I’m looking forward to seeing what you create with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #691

Happy HAPPY Tuesday!!  It’s time already for sketch #691 from Tuesday Morning Sketches. This is another DT favorite revisited it is #663 and Debi’s pick. You can see the original post here.

I had this basic idea when we did this sketch for the first time but then I had just received these beautiful papers from my SU friend Amy. They were just so perfect and quick for the sketch that I couldn’t resist.  

This wasn’t exactly what I had in mind but since I need 7 Valentine’s Day cards I decided to go with pinks and reds and then I decided to add doodling and - well here you go this was the result.

I got these Caran D’Ache Neocolor II water solvable crayons for myself during Black Friday sales and just literally colored like you would a crayon then brushed it with water.  This is on Arches watercolor paper.  I doodled with a Sharpie Stained Black laundry marker and a white Posca pen.  See how brave I was to hand write my sentiment!! lol

This sketch was such a pleasure to create with I hope you get to have at least half as much fun with it as I did because that is still a TON of FUN!!  I’ll be looking for your artwork at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week!!  Enjoy!

Tuesday Morning Sketches #690

HAPPY 2023 from Tuesday Morning Sketches & me!!

This is our first sketch of the year and it is our tradition to all pick a favorite from the year prior.  This time it is a sketch from Andrea and it was chosen by Debbie.  

My top card is made with leftovers from making the actual sketch card below.  It was a fun way to get the craftiness started for 2023.

I truly hope that your holidays were wonderful and look forward to creating along with our design team and and all our players throughout the coming year.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I’m excited to see what you create with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!
