Some Cards and a Quick Update

Hello again blog world! I am happy to say that I have successfully finished my first year of Interior Design. I feel like it has helped me to grow as a person and I have learned so much! I am looking forward to a break from school this summer, but I still want to practice everything I have learned.

I created this card for someone special who has been having many different health issues lately. Prayers for a speedy recovery!
I cut the birds out from a DCWV piece of pattern paper. The background that they are on was created with manila card stock, LSG sprays, and some white gesso. Behind that I used a recipe card divider and another piece of coordinating DCWV paper.
The washi tapes were purchased at Michael's and I believe they are Recollections. I used my stampin up spiral notebook punch on one layer.
The cards below were given to my two roommates. Because I am now moved back home, I wanted to give them a little "thank you" for the good semester.
I cut out the viewmaster wheels from a design paper and used some other scraps I had laying around.
I hope you enjoyed these projects! If you would like to see what I have been up to for the last couple days go check out my Quick Scrapbooking Layout Ideas video on Youtube! Hopefully I will have the second part up today or tomorrow sometime!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful rest of your week.

The Final Crunch

The final crunch time is upon all of us University students! It is my last week of classes and, being a design student, this means I have all my final projects due within a few days. Today I felt pretty successful so I decided to take the evening off even though I probably shouldn't. Last week I worked for usually 12-14 hours per day in the studio and this week I suspect a few all nighters are ahead of me. Oh the life of a design student! I really do love what I do, but there are many sacrifices (ie: sleep).
Anyway, today I finished off two big projects! Below are some photo collages of them!
The above pictures are of my Design class final project. I was to create and imaginary client and design a condo space based on an exterior shell I was given. This is called a maquette model (plan and elevation are drawn, but nothing is actually 3D). I used a combination of copic markers and water colour paints.
Above are pictures of my Design Communication final project. I was to find a photo of an actual space, recreate its plan and elevation, use these to create a technical perspective, and then render it all using water colour paint. I then had to scan all the images and create an 11"x17" bound booklet.
I wanted to include these last 2 pictures so that you would all know that I do get out every so often. This weekend my church league ball team had their first tournament! It was pretty chilly (note the thick ice on the fence and even the Tim's cup) but we managed to play 3 games on Saturday! I feel like these truly describe a typical Albertan April: still nasty here!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by! I hope it is warmer wherever you are visiting from!
