August is quickly approaching and so it's time to go Back to School! While our children let out a collective sigh, it's time for shopping, open houses and all the good stuff! I tried to create a little schoolhouse scene complete with desk and wood flooring, I think I need more practice and confidence free hand drawing! I finally got smart and used one of the doodle images from Setting the Stage (using only the lined part of the image) to create the wood grain effect which worked nicely when I wasn't using an ink way too dark for the accents! Well, next time it will be more successful! I don't know about you but I get so nervous trying to freehand things!! You can't tell from this angle, but the desk is popped up as is the globe, books and apple. So there is a bit more depth to the card than the picture portrays! I am busy preparing for the new release, I hope everyone gets as excited about these new sets as I am!
