I am sure you have seen some beautiful artwork
The Efficient Crafter Blog.
Now it is my turn to share my projects for you
with this months Club Scrap Hopes papers.
My blog post is a special one this time.
It is a memorial to my friend and
colleague Gosia Orszulik,
who died a brutal and unnecessary death
and with these projects I want
to pay tribute to her life.
First I have made some scrap pages
with the few pictures I have of her.
Usually you don't make pictures of
colleagues at work, but when you
play P365 (making a picture every day)
you sometimes do. Now I am glad I have these pictures.
Here the two pages together.
I choose to make ALSB pages 11 & 12
It seems like this kit is just perfect for her
and the sentiments are so appropriate.
I tore of some of the paper to symbolize the
sudden way she died. She was only 32 and had
so much going for her.
This is the card I made for her parents. All the co-workers
have written inside. It is a folded 8,5 x 11 inch piece
of paper folded in half.
The flowers are punched out and the candle is made out
of a woodsie, painted to go with the papers.
This is a poem I typed with the computer and printed out.
As I also always have something with a technique for
you, I made two card with a technique Junkie
technique for you. The technique is called:
Pressed Stains and you find it in the June/July 2013
newsletter if you are a Technique Junkie member.
You need an embossing folder
and a water spritzer.
You ink the embossing folder with two
or three colors of your choice,
spritz a little water on top and
add your paper.
Run the folder through the machine.
You get some beautiful background papers
this way. I added some vintage photo all around
the paper with a blending tool.
For the cards I used 1 taupe 8,5 x 11 inch cut in half
and some panels made out of my pops
(pound of paper that I always have as an extra)
I also used it to stamp the sentiments.
The sentiments are so true and appropriate in this case.
Here the finished cards.
I have been doodleing a little
on the sentiment.
