Part Two and Stepping Outside the Box

I've been looking for a design team job that would fit me - and my LOVE of chipboard brought me over to Magistical Memories and their DT call. I first saw Magistical Memories chipboard at a class taught by Cheryl Mezzetti and fell in love with their stuff! I'm so excited to have been chosen to proceed to part TWO of their DT selection process. OK - it's not the DT gig, but it's a step closer and this step will be a lot of fun! I'll have fun with it, and whatever it brings, it brings!

Other news: I've been taking an online class at with Dina Wakley that has really been forcing me to step outside my comfort zone. I'm actually painting, getting messy, handwriting my journaling, and not worrying about things lining up! Amazing!

Take a look at this transformation of a simple 4x6 piece of paper: I learned how to do this:

Then added images to make this:

And then added some journaling to make this:

If you EVER have a chance to take a class from Dina
- online or live - DO IT!
Thanks for reading and have a creative week! - betsy
