Gift Cards

Holidays are on the way and gifts for the boss are a necessity. This year, I am making him note cards with envelopes so he can do his thank you notes in style. I hunted down wooden letters at Michael's and these are what I came up with.

The first is in the round:

This one has some spray paint, stamps and embossing around the letters:

This one is spray paint with baby wipe blending and the tangles with colored pen:

On its side:

Water color wash and colored pens:

And my favorite, a stacker. Stackers are a design plan from Cindy of the RainbowElephant.com
Hope he likes them. If not, his wife has the same initials LOL!!

I actually slowed down and paid attention to what I was doing. Here are a few of the things I did in the class:

 Was actually given two "real" tiles but chose not to use them. I don't know why I just haven't even tried them even though I have purchased some of the white and black ones from Zentangle.com I guess I think I have to be doing a lot better with these before I use my precious tiles :)

Scrap Art

Sometimes you just have to do with what's on hand. Driving to work, I saw a cloud formation that reminded me of the windmills in California. A piece of memo paper, ball point pen, pencil, and a couple of highlighters was all I needed to do this little gem:
