The first year I attended Artfest I took a class from Roxanne Padgett 'creating mixed media portraits'. It was a really fun class and I had every intention of making more of these portraits. The problem was timing, always something else to do. So last week I made up my mind to have fun and create another portrait. I'm having a difficult time deciding whether I do or do not like this one. I really liked the ones I did in Roxanne's class. I think it's the colors I used.
These watercolors are from Carla Sonheim's "Faces" class. This is so much fun.
I bought a new heavy duty paper cutter made by Zutter. This paper cutter cuts cardboard, mat board, canvas board and will cut through small stacks of paper. To test it I made several little journals. It did cut through the thicker cardboard and mat board easily. I also used paper from my scrapbox for the inside pages. I was able to cut about 10 pieces of paper at a time. The covers were from some poster board that I use under my projects. After working over a sheet of poster board for several weeks I end up with some real pretty cover board.
