Digital Two for Tuesday 149


This week our guess designer is Patti LaBombard.  Patti is a talented designer that uses lots of colors in her designs.  Her use of papers adds a special dimension to her cards. Each week we have been so lucky to have talented designers bring us ideas for these digital images.  Sometimes going out of their comfort zone, as I surprise them with the images each time.  

Patti's Project Description:" I have always wanted to do a mosaic and this picture screamed for a mosaic for both the front and the background.  His little eyes are so full of expression.  I just love them.  The background of the picture is done in "Sand White" which is a brown tone in copics.  The tongue and ears are also done in a brown tone in copic, the flesh pink.  The eyes are the plain brown in copic color.  Then a blend on his coat and a blend on the doggy biscuit.  I wanted the matting behind the dog to be darker brown and then I used kraft paper for the card.  I had the dog papers already.  Making the cuts was easy b/c of the picture itself.  I used my 1" punch for the background papers.  I did use a little grey on his nose."


Patti's Bio in her own words....."I am a Christian wife, mother, and grandmother who started out scrapbooking in 2006 when my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.  The next year I did another 50th wedding anniversary for my in-laws.  The next year I did all of the pictures I had for my children for their Christmas presents.  Last year a friend introduced me to digital images when we were doing Christmas cards.  That was it for me.  I found my calling.  I jumped in with both feet.  My husband & I moved back to Texas a year & a half ago after living in Florida for 10 years because we felt like we should both be closer to our parents to take care of them.  It makes us closer to all of our family.  We now have a 1 year old Shih-poo named Jax and a 5 month old Shih Tzu named Neda, which is Choctaw for Bear."

You can see more of Patti's creative artwork at her blog ScrapClose2theHeart .

Here are this weeks images.  Both are from a John Martin's children's magazine from the 20's.
