Pretty Pastels

For this month´s Visible Image ATC swap themed "Pretty Pastels" I´ve made two variations with the same stamp set. The card above came out better, I think, but of course the ATC below is what it was all about. However, my swap partner in Switzerland loved them both, so I´m happy. But making these in a pastel colour scheme has been a challenge for me as I´m a dedicated lover of bold colours ...

See what others don´t

My card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Spectacles/Goggles" has a focus on looking deeper than usual. I´ve combined stamps from Art Journey, Visible Image and Graphic 45/Hampton Art for this card.

What makes a good teacher?

We all watch Youtube videos and other lessons by professional art teachers nowadays. But what makes a teacher a GOOD teacher? In my opinion, a good teacher makes you want to fetch your pencil and paints after a few minutes while watching the video. For me, Toni Burt is a master doing this - I´m not able to watch one of her videos without grabbing my pencil and watercolours and follow her instructions. I especially love that my results always look like my own designs and not hers. I´d call this a teacher´s super power.
