Scrapbooking collections


I recently received a box of scrape booking samples I made for American Traditional. This was perfect timing as during my last trip into Archiver’s I saw bits & pieces of it. The baby group is called Born to Be Wild I loved the brighter palette I was able to use. The birthday collection turned out well too. I like the more sophisticated color palette. I’m showing just a small bit of each collection- it’s so nice to see how it all comes together.


The last bit of papers I’m showing is also for American Traditional. I’m featuring a few of my favorites from a larger collection I created for them.


Update:
I should have mention the name of the collections so you can look for them on the internet.
The first pictures are for "born to be wild"
The second shots are from "life of the party"
and the last one is for "candy blossoms"

hello Jill I just found out you have a blog, well welcome to blogland. I am a great admirer of your work and I meant to stop by and say hello at Surtex but was stuck in meetings. I have decided not to do the show this year and next I hope it was good for you.

I am usually downstairs so I never get upstairs to say hello to fellow artists. I was curious to see if your designs are digital or painted? I have recently began working more digital these days for some clients and find it fun but challenging at the same time.

Anyway just wanted to say hello!!

Hi Ellen,

Glad you checked out my blog & Thanks for
your kind words. Most of my designs are hand
painted then scanned in & separated into layers
with some clean up & a few more details added.
It's a bit of a process.
Thanks again for saying Hello!

Jill

Hi Jill,

I am soo computer challenged so doing layers in photoshop is not one of my best suits but it seems you have it down! I am doing more illustrator work because some clients need vetor images, its more simple for me.

I still paint allot of my work in gauche but love trying new things like collage and digital. Love the new puzzles very cute!
