Productivity Overdrive!

Well, May was a HUGELY BUSY month for me. I had to finish (well, start and finish) a 5'x18" banner for a Midsummer Masquerade fundraiser ball in town. It's been sooooooooo long since I've painted on canvas--I was really scared to start! The 2nd day was the worst, but on the last day I suddenly hit my groove, and the whole thing turned out ok. (You can see it on the fundraiser auction website here.) Plus, I was busy making TWO free kits for 2 different scrapping sites. More on those later in June! So then I figured that if I was going to be featured in June, I should probably have some new stuff in my shops... and *boom!* Creativity happened!

So, I have a new kit for you called Flying Colors (I'd polled my fans on Facebook about whether "Tickled Pink" or "Flying Colors" caught their fancy more, and the latter won). It's nominally about graduation from any grade, but also of course about that exciting and fearful time of change, when you don't really know what's going to happen next... I had to show the brushes, and the word art, separately (click on them to see them full size), cuz of course the kit is huge!

And this, is a coordinating freebie!!

  Not only all that, but I also participated in the MScraps Memory Mix collection, where you can get mix and match pieces for either $1 or $2, depending on how full the packs are. Mine's a delightful collection of beach-themed brushes called Sunsplashed, taken from photographs of my own wanderings, of course!

And furthermore, while I was coming up with my little bead scatters for the Flying Colors kit, I just went ahead and extracted a whole BUNCH of beads, and put them in my commercial use shop (though they're good for CU or PU!):

I will leave you to imagine how long it took to use the pen tool to extract all those babies. Heh.

So there you go! And the end of school is approaching, which means I have less and less to do each day as Allen claws his way through the end of the curriculum--and for me, that means MORE TIME! Can't wait for summer vacation!

Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend playing. =)
