Presently I'm rushing around trying to get everything in before I head off to an evening jewelry class at the local A.C. Moore... Mind you, a couple of hours ago I was in leisure mode thinking everything was running like clockwork. Then hubby remarked at lunch how he couldn't believe this was the last day of July. "No, tomorrow's the last day," I responded. "Better take a look at the calendar," says he... Of course he was right (this time), and that meant I had a ton of website prepping to do. Instant change of plans with warp speed commencing.
Anyhoo, I know I'm not going to get much, if any, computer time in this weekend, so wanted to share August's feature card before my other activities begin:
Stamps used are from the Faux Van Gogh #1 and WD-185 Ending/Sending sets, and during August, when purchased together as the Spotlight Special, these sets will be specially priced with free US shipping included. Note: The special doesn't officially start until after midnight tonight...
Also, available at the website from now until August 31, are the detailed instructions for completing this card. The one tip I'll give here that I didn't include in the instructions, is when coloring this image, I've found the best results are achieved by not thinking too much about it, and sort of doing what I call a quickie job -- working to give an impression vs. working in every detail. It also helps to have a photo reference of one of the Van Gogh originals. Several of his versions can be seen HERE.
See you next week,
