Out for Publication: Scrap 'n Art Magazine

Good day everyone! I'm delighted to be back with some good news... One of my projects titled Vintage Album Box, is out for publication and will be featured in Scrap 'n Art Magazine's July issue. This is one exciting accomplishment and I'm glad to be able to share it with you. Thanks to all who support my work, blog and other sites, I really appreciate it. For instance, I recently reached 100 likes on Facebook and it's exciting to see how the number of followers grow with each day that goes by.

I'll be back soon with a new project and a new release from my Digital Paper Pack Collection.


  1. Oh, Gracie, that is so exciting!!! Congrats!!! Pretty app I will be able to say "I knew her when . . . ". I have another online friend I am proud to say the same thing about...met her while on a DT with and she was doing monthly embellishments kits. She now has her own brand of chippies, flair & masks (DeeDee of UmWowStudio) and has designed paper for 7DotsStudios. I can't wait till I get to say the same thing for you.

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…
