Well both of your creations are pretty. I love how you blended the soft colors on your first card. I like that you went beyond an A2 card for your second. All very pretty. TFS AJ~

Especially like the paper bag creation. I have brown bags & white bags but not seem yellow bags. Is the yellow bag a gift bag of sorts? Wild about this stamp set. Wonderful creations. On my bucket list is to go on an African Safari. I used Be Wild & Free for the Simple Salutations Ch#3 Tree and used 2 inks to color it. It's like I'm part of the hop. You gals have such wonderful techniques for your creations.

Love all of the eye-candy :) Great job on all of them.

Janis, I've noticed that you have been doing more and more chalking and I love how it looks. May I ask how you are applying it? I have a large chalk palette, but can't seem to find the right way to apply it. I've used sponge tip applicators for the most part, but I am not happy with my results and yours look so beautiful.

Janine said...

Great projects - paper bag card is great

Janis Lewis said...

Hi, Denny! Chalking is so easy. I use a cotton ball when chalking large areas like the sky, grass or field, etc. I try to use a cotton ball with smaller areas, but sometimes need to clean up the lines with a "magic erase". For smaller areas I use a Q-tip. Sometimes I even use my finger. LOL Thanks for asking! Please let me know if you get this response. :)
