Tangent No. 10: Icon Grids

I had to wait to work on this one, because I didn’t have any note cards at home – but my daughter brought one home from school for me.

The hardest part for me was the size of each square – I made them pretty small, and trying to sketch inside those tiny squares with a pencil was challenging at times!

Magical December

Well, that looks a bit familiar, yes? It’s not the final one either. I still didn’t like it, even after painting over the lighter version.

So i painted over it again.

December-Magic-3

It looks quite dark, but it’s pretty close to the same blue as above – possibly even lighter. Amazing how much difference natural light makes.

I fixed the lettering by using stamps (vastly improved it) and got rid of most of the lyrics.

Just keeping a few of the favorite lines…

fallingI like it now. A fitting beginning to a magical December!

December Will Be Magic Again

You can’t see them in the picture very well, but there are lots of pretty blue, silver, & white snowflakes all over the pages. I love the titles, but I’m just not sure about this page….. It needs more dark.

There are a few things about it that I love, however.

see-how-I-fall

This was surrounded by snowflakes, and had an attempt at the word SNOW after it, but the stamps, ink & pearlescent powders weren’t being my friend.

december-lightI also rather liked how the titles came out. A lot. Again, they were stamped with snowflakes, but they just weren’t showing up very well.

magic-lightI originally had written this in silver, but (again) on the light background, it just wasn’t readable.

The silver pine cones are fun though, aren’t they?
