Today is the day!
If you don't know, I've gotten involved with a brand new online crafting magazine, Papers and Pixels. Well, after a long two weeks wait (since I started with them) the first edition is available today. Woohoo!!!!!
The zine is FULL of great crafting info, interviews, product reviews ---AND--- we host a monthly challenge. This month it's a sketch - but don't get too comfortable with that format -- because you never know what it's going to be next.
So, a sketch. You can do a card, quilt, scrapbook page, decorate a package, a t-shirt, a purse -- whatever you want to do with the sketch. We want to see it ALL!!!
I'll be doing a couple other things with this sketch in the coming days, but for now.. here's my digital scrapbook page.
It's done with a kit called Calypso by Tandika Star. I got this freebie kit a long long time ago and can't find it available anywhere now. Sorry! I supplemented the kit with additional papers and things that I created.
The font on the title is called 28 Days Later*. You can see what it looks like without style effects in the "2005". I gave it a big stroke, did a stroke emboss and an inner glow with a color from the background paper. The journaling is done in Pea Devon. I just love Fonts for Peas*.
Be sure to upload your version to the Papers and Pixels gallery!
* I am in no way affiliated these font sites. I can not be responsible for anything that may happen to your computer related to downloading content from the Internet. Legal mambo jumbo out of the way --- these are the sites I get my fonts from. Nothing bad has ever happened to me *knock on wood* from using their sites and I'm ever so thrilled with them. I can only hope that you have the same luck if you decide to use their yummy fonts.
