Dirty Dozen - Congrats!


April - Nest Card, originally uploaded by inglishrea.

Hey guys! Can you believe we're already just about halfway through October? It's crazy to think how fast time flies sometimes. Two of my favorite things will be happening tonight... The Papertrey release at midnight (EST), and then the Dirty Dozen gallery opening at 1am (EST)! :)

This is one of the items I made for my big debut back in April. The theme was Going Green, and at first, I was like, what in the world am I going to do with this?! Turns out, it was one of my favorites of the six month term! :) The "Going Green" element on this card is the little hand-made nest I created using some old basket filler I had lying around... I put it in a box, and went to town with some brown Tattered Mist ink... Once it was dry, I rolled it all up into a ball and gave it some shape (I adhered it to the card base with Crystal Effects... LOL, that stuff has a billion uses!).

If you're a PTI fan, I hope to see you at the release party... Otherwise, have a great night!! :)

P.S... I've had some questions about the difference Flickr makes with photos... The Flickr photos are closer to what my photos look like after I'm done editing them in Photoshop... Call me crazy, but I think Bloggers photo uploader degrades the image.

  1. You're completely right about the photos! Wordpress does the same thing. Only WP doesn't allow Flickr! URLs for photos. I have to use photobucket. I still keep my flickr gallery full. ;-)

    Now... your card... umm... GENIUS.

    That's all! :-)

    I agree about uploading through Flickr! Mac told me that trick earlier this year. Most times, I'm too lazy to upload to Flickr then do my post! LOL

  16. Heather, I LOVE this! WOW! It's so clean and pretty. You're right, in PS, my photos come out nice (even in MS Photo Manager), but when I upload to blogger, it dims it quite considerably!
