Well, I don't have any brand new artwork to share (I'm working on some super C-U-T-E stuff with some NEW products...be sure to come back next week for a Blog Hop!), and since I've already shared some cards and a home decor item, I thought I'd share a layout today. :o)
Back in October, my mom, husband, and I went to Columbus, GA for a concert. Max Lucado (an awesome pastor and author) teamed up with World Vision and 3 totally rockin' Christian bands (Third Day, Toby Mac, and Michael W. Smity) for the Make A Difference (MAD) Tour. Max is celebrating his 25th year in ministry and his goal is to get 2500 children sponsored through World Vision.
As a current World Vision sponsor, I was offered a SWEET deal on a VIP package that included seats in the second row (AWESOME!!) and a pre-show Q&A session with Max and the bands. I have never done VIP tickets to a concert, but since the show was in October and my birthday is in October I talked my hubby into making a little vacation out of it. There was NO way I was passing up the chance to chat with the lead singer of one of my all-time favorite bands (Mac Powell from Third Day)! This layout is of the pre-show Q&A. And no, I did not use my zoom...I was really that close to them! :o) (click on the image to view it larger)
To make my title and the black stars polka-dotted, I used the emboss-resist technique. I stamped the Spot On dots in Versamark ink and then embossed them with clear detail embossing powder. I then inked up a sponge in black ink and rubbed over the images. The black colors the background, but not the dots!
