For my project today I started off with the Love's Faded Memory image, which is a cool vampy skull (see the fangs?) with a rose. I colored with my new prisma markers, and I have to say that it is getting fun working with markers. I know, I know, that's so last year, but I've never used them before so rather than bombarding you with techniques, I decided to just practice my coloring.
The base of my project is a milk carton. There is a store here called Creation Station, and they sell surplus and recycled stuff that they get from manufacturers, companies, etc. Basically they keep alot of stuff out of landfills and the bonus is YOU as the customer get really neat goodies for a great price to use in your creative endeavors, whatever they may be. Anyways, the last time I was there I picked up a whole bunch of these clean, empty, unfolded milk cartons, like the ones you'd find in grade school.
I covered my carton with deco paper, assembled with red line tape, and then inked it up. I added my colored image, some pink brads as closures, and then wrote "Love" on the top. Pretty simple really, but I think it's a cool little Valentine candy holder. Plus I got to practice my mad coloring skills, ha ha! I know the skull doesn't look like much coloring went into it, but believe me, it has layers! ;)
So, I hope you get some inspiration from my project and all the others featured today. Have fun hopping and thanks for stopping by!
