Process Video: Masculine Card

Today I made my very first process video and created a card using the little boy stamp that I coloured in my first colouring video that I made last week and shared with you. Here is the new video:

And here is the final card up close.
 I pretty much explained everything about this card in the video, but it's for a guild mate of mine from Elder Scrolls Online and I wanted to keep it simple for him which is why the video is short. I hope it wasn't too slow or boring for you. Give me time and I'll babble through anything so yeah. Anyway, I'll hopefully be able to use my YouTube channel more often, if people like seeing videos from me, so please subscribe!

Watercolour Wednesday: The Red Tree

For today's Watercolour Wednesday I have a piece I was working on in Mike's office on Monday. I went to work with him because he was getting tubes put in his eyes in the hopes of keeping them from getting to dry and damaging his vision. He was going to pick out glasses too and needed my help, but decided to wait until he got the permanent tubes put in a week from now. Anyway, I stayed the whole day at his work and needed something to do, so I painted this. I like working with silhouettes because it means you don't have to know how to draw properly and include details, lol! I finished most of it at his work, taking my pencils and paint box with me, and then I misted it and did some final inking when we got home. I hope you like it! I kinda want to try this in a bunch of different colours. I like trees. They're inspiring, don't you think?

Hunger Games Marathon

Hiya, everyone! I have a layout today. Mike and I went to see the Hunger Games Mockingjay release last year, but instead of just seeing one movie, we saw all three! I absolutely love seeing movies in a marathon and I always try and get a few pictures, even though the theatres are dark. I included our ticket on here (which totally threw off the colour scheme) as well as the little lanyard they had us wear with all three movies' showtimes on it and whatnot. I stuck close to the "fire" theme for this layout, since that plays a huge part in Hunger Games in general. Since the photos ended up quite dark, especially with a black dog involved, I kept black as just a small embellishment of the doodling on the paper instead of adding black washi or something for instance. I did get a good amount of washi on here, as well as several patterns from one of my Stash kits that I made a while back. It was the Autumn Twist kit so it had a lot of these type patterns and colours. I hope you like this layout, and are happy to actually SEE layouts on this site, since I don't make them often! Stay Crafty. :)
