You may remember several years ago when I made a fantastically amazing Gingerbread Castle.
Well, my friends… it’s been upstaged!
My new friend, Josh, used my template to create his Castle this year… and added Trebuchets and Siege Towers! He very kindly provided a link to his photo, so I figured I’d post it here. It really is quite spectacular!
Seriously, loving the additions! Way to go, Josh!
Obviously I’m going to have to do a new one next year!
This thing is LOADED with tips for every level of photographer. Point & Shoot? Kiss Auto good-bye! Learning Apertures and ISO? This is going to be your new best friend. An old hand? This has some great tricks. Even if you don’t need the camera help, there are some amazing composition helps! Seriously, this thing is bursting with great knowledge.
Then, as if that isn’t enough, there are all sorts of Photo Editing and Digital Scrapping bits! I’m quite an advanced Digi-Scrapper (even if I do say so myself) and I still learned loads. And if you’re thinking about dipping your toe but are a bit intimidated and don’t know where to start? START HERE!!!! Seriously, it’s wonderful.
Ok, so as you can tell, I’m kind of a fan of this new magazine! I’m such a fan that I’m going to give a copy away. Leave a comment here by 11.59 pm Pacific 8 September, and I’ll post a winner on the 9th.
Here are a few more locations to get registered for a chance to win a copy:
Hey everyone! The super talented Kim Watson, a member of the CK DreamTeam will be giving another free class this Saturday 11.00 am Mountain over at ClubCK. Creating Keepsakes Magazine is the sponsor for this event. Come on over and say hi. If you can’t make the live class, the thread will be available later, but we’d love to see you during the event.
Hey everyone. My post is going to be really brief, sorry. My nephew’s been in the hospital all weekend, and I simply don’t have the time/energy to do a full post. (He’s fine and home now. I’ve just not yet recovered.)
But this new magazine DOES deserve a look. It’s super fun. Click here for the special Sneak Peek. I’m a particular fan of the crackle medium. You can find it in the hardware store with the other specialty paints, or in the craft store. There are some paints that crackle by themselves, and there are solutions you can get that crackle any waterbased paint, letting you make your own. It’s pretty fun stuff to play with.
This is a 3×3″ canvas I did back in April. You’ll notice the chipboard bird has been painted with acrylic, then covered in Tim Holtz’ Rock Candy, which is a clear crackle medium.
If you’d like a chance at winning a copy of this super cool magazine, leave a message on my blog. I’ll pull a random winner on Sunday, so be sure you leave your comment by 11.59 MDT Saturday 21 July, 2012. If you can’t wait that long, no worries! You can always get your copy in the online store.
