File Folder Pocket with Tags - Frank Garcia Design Team



Hey Friends! 
 I'm sharing a design team project for the Frank Garcia team. I've created a file folder pocket with tags using the French Riviera Collection. 

I use a regular file folder and trim it down in size. You can make them as large or small as you desire. I sew the side seams together then cut pattern paper down to size for the front and back.

Many layers were of papers, florals, beads, and textures were used on the front along with misting splatters. I also added my book page fringe and some book page rosette flowers.

Stamping and stenciling using Franks 6 x6 Stencil.

I used embossing powder and paints on the chains for a vintage look.

I topped the pocket off with Franks beautiful Memory Hardware Parisian Leather Paper.

I kept my tags pretty simple for journaling and photos. I topped some off with chipboard starfish that I painted and embossed. The others were topped with a book page rosette.

Let's Face It 2016

Just thought I would share some portrait work I've been doing with an online class called
"Let's Face It 2016" it's run by Kara Bullock you can find it here
There is a new lesson every week by a different instructor and the class is suitable for you no matter where you are at in your journey. 

I've done some portrait work in graphite with 3 views - front facing, 3/4 and profile. It is really amazing to see my growth. I do not draw and paint as much as I would and you really need to be doing all the time to practice. Practice makes all the difference. :)

Week 3

Week 11

Week 19

I have also done two painting lessons:

Week 4 - lesson with Petra Stein
(LOVED this lesson)


Week 6- lesson with Karine Bosse

(This lesson was a huge challenge and I need to do it again. It is on wood - I've never painted a portrait on wood before and also used watercolors, absorbant ground and oil pastels. The lesson called for a mixed media background but I did not like mine at all. I tend not to line this type of background on my portrait work. I ended up covering it up and using acrylics) I really dislike this painting but we learn from every piece we work on.

The cute little chipboard girl from the Tales of You and Me Chipboard pack and the cute wood butterfly from The Archivist Wood Icons make a great pair!
