Lots going on

This month has been really busy with lots of things going on. It will probably be a little quiet here until after Paper Arts A Thon (PAAT) but hopefully after that I will get back into posting more often.

We have 2 more weeks of photography classes left (tomorrow and the week after). This week one of the things we had to do was make a "soft focus filter". I decided to bring my stamping into it and make one with my linen background stamp. I stamped the linen with white Staz On on a piece of transparency. While that was drying I cut a piece of chipboard (around 5 1/2" square) and then cut a hole a little bigger than the size of my lense. I then taped the transparency to the chipboard. This is what it looks like:

This is the before picture of my cat Ripple.

This is with the soft focus filter.Pretty cool, eh?

And this is soooo cool.......

Ian was my model for Ghosting. He thought it was pretty cool that he got to be a ghost. Plus there was a little bribery with gummy candies. LOL!

Anyway, I am off to start figuring out what we are doing at stamp camp this weekend. My homework is pretty much done so now I can concentrate on stamping................well and maybe a little house cleaning.

Just got off the phone from talking to you and had to come check this out! That is way too cool! you are so VERY creative and inventive...only you would think to draw stamping into this technique. There is one pic that is showing an error...and I want to know what it is...

I think I know what your "error" is....if it is a lot of us have a whole bunch of pics with those errors.
