Things that I have been working on in my crafts
Hello all you Crafty Ladies☺ I have been lurking around reading posts and checking things out here on the HSN Community. Nice to see posts about craft day and questions about craft tools etc. I too have been busy crafting little things myself.
Thanks to @fbn135 I think I can now post up some pictures of things I have been working on. I received a gift from HSN. Items from Anna Griffith and Crafter’s Companion and Spectrum Noir colour Blend coloring pencils.
I am sharing my gift with my daughter and have made several boxes to hold the items of Anna Griffith as I am keeping the original boxes they came in.
I also finished my duck plate and made a card for my Husband for Father’s Day.
I have been drawing and coloring with my pencils and my scan n cut. I created a very bazaar abstract drawing. Just shapes and things of imagination.
Well lets see if I can post these pictures up. They might post up in random order.
Thanks for taking a look☺
Your HSN friend
Yes Yes…Good Morning CupaTea, I’ve seenyour other thread on the other machine and your Explanation to the other post person. It read better than the manual, you have a VERY GOOD handle on all this stuff!! Looks like JollyJelly is owning the cute Surfing Lizard. 37 Minutes ago she mentioned she hoped to see your Rocker card posted??
JOLLYJELLY…. be sure to see CupaTea’s Thread: “HAVING FUN WITH MY SIMPLE ROCKER CARD”! Youwill Love what you see. My daughter says your choice on using Sakura markers is a good one! She uses PRISMA color pencils and COPIC markers… SEE YOU BOTH AROUND THE COMMUNITY…HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY!!
Hi, 3fl2shsn! I thank you and your daughter for getting my lizard
cartoon to appear on here–it encouraged me to keep trying to get
it up on here, myself. And of course, CupaTea was a huge help,
as well! But tell your daughter, “Thanks!” from me! 🙂
She’s got good taste in art supplies, for sure! That’s all
supposed to be really good stuff she’s using! Nice job!
Hope you enjoy my latest cartoon for Crafting Day! I actually
did manage to post it. Yay! Off to see CupaTea’s latest
Ok, trying to post a picture, once again…..please let this work!
Oh, well. Back to the drawing board.
I will start cursing now, in cartoon language: #!!@?/!!@!!@!
Good Day CupaTea, Thank You for Your encouragement and kind words for “Smarty-Pants”! HI Jollyjelly… Adorable Campi Lizard! Yeah you know, Kids now are BORN knowing how to use a computer ( like a Cat and a sand box ) Hahaa. I would LOVE to see your Crafting Cat Cartoon… Don’t give up on posting… GOOD LUCK!!
Hi….thank you for the encouragement! I couldn’t get back to this site ’til now,
but the house is quiet and I’ve got a couple of hours to see if I can figure
out how to post these pictures…….so, away we go!
P.S. What a cute little picture! Love that sort of thing! JollyJelly
Wow, you guys are GOOD! I can’t believe you got my little “practice cartoon” to show up…..
I still can’t do it, myself! But I’ll be back later, to try. Yes, the surfing lizard
is mine! I do a little cartoon of “Campi, the Campaign Lizard” on Facebook. It’s just
some silly fun with a lizard who likes politics, but he doesn’t really take sides on
anything important. We just deal with fun stuff, so anyone can enjoy it no matter what
your politics are.
I was using this Campi cartoon as a test-run–I was saving my latest “Crafting Cat Cartoon”
for closer to Crafting Day, next week., to post on here. Can’t believe you guys got Campi
to show up here, but I still can’t! 🙂
I will be back later to try. I stink at “cut and paste,” and all that stuff.
But you guys are GREAT!! JollyJelly
Ugh… CupaTea…. I have NO CLUE how she did this ( PhD in Computer Science ). This is the image “smarty-pants” found… and what I was looking at. I was just wondering if this was what JollyJelly drew… it’s So cute!!! ♥
Good Morning @3fl2shsn and everyone ☺
@3fl2shsn that is a really cute surfing Lizard not sure if that is @jollyjelly I know she did drawings of her shopping cat. ☺ That are cute too. thank you daughter for me too for helping you post it up.♥
@jollyjelly you know what for your picture do not use the img tab just try copy and pasting from flker right into the post. No need to use any of the tabs. That is how I posted my own pictures I just made a post and then copied and pasted the pictures right in to it.
I will be posting up a new card that I made so I will be back soon.
Your HSN friend,
Hi, CupaTea….finally got a chance to get back here without
interruptions, for awhile. And that’s good, because I’m
gonna need it nice and quiet to try to figure out how to
post these pictures! 🙂
Thanks for all your tips…I hope my brain can absorb some
of them and actually figure this out! Crafting Cat is getting
mad at me for not putting her “onstage” yet! LOL So, we’ll
see what we can do. And thanks for your thoughts on the
Spectrum Noir pencils.
It’s nice to have a variety of pencils & markers to work with,
even if they’re really inexpensive (like what I’ve got right now).
I find that even the same color by different manufacturers can
show up differently….like, a RoseArt blue isn’t quite the
same as a Crayola blue in the colored pencils. And you might
like one better than the other. So, it’s fun to experiment!
Well, I’m going off to battle with the computer, now. LOL
Hope everyone’s having a great day! And we look forward
to seeing the new card you’re working on! JollyJelly
Hi CupaTea, wish I could take credit…. but my daughter is the one ( with rolling eyes of course) who clicked a few things on my computer. I asked her how she did it ( she’s just 17 ) but she was running late, She said she would show me later….. ♥♥
JollyJelly… is the Surfing Lizard yours? Did you draw that with the ColurBlends that CupaTea posted??
Hi. Yes, the Surfing Lizard is mine! No, I can’t afford the ColorBlends
right now, so Campi was done mainly with colored pencils from
Crayola and RoseArts, and Crayola markers. The colors show up well
for scanning and photocopying even though they’re really inexpensive,
as far as colored pencils and markers go.
But, being cheap, the pencils do tend to break kind of easily when
sharpening them. I try to use my better pencil sharpener
when working with them (a hand-held one by Staedtler). It
helps, but it’s not perfect. I also use Sakura Pigma Micron
Markers for outlining….a really good product that can make
you look like a better artist than you are! 🙂 I even
use Bic ballpoint pens for some stuff! 🙂 JollyJelly
`Testing to see if I can post this photo. I will delete if I goof up (again!) <img src=”http://flic.kr/p/VQzPKb” alt=”cartoon” />
@jollyjelly when you have your picture set in flker try right clicking on it and then click on “Copy view image link”. then come and use the IMG tab Click on IMG tab then in the box right click your mouse and choose paste the url will show up. Then give it a name and click ok. then see if it will post up. For some reason to me the IMG tab looks different then before. I thought there where a few more boxes to fill in on it. I just did the spectrum noir pencils to refresh myself on how to use it. I tried your picture too and removed some of the words to it but it still did not work.
tried yours several more times but your pic did not work.
Your HSN friend
Thank You CupaTea for your kind and Welcoming invite to the crafting “party”. We just got done drafting the front of the card. I’ve never posted my own pictures on social media, but maybe by Christmas I will figure it out, LOL. Keep posting your crafts though ♥
@beenelmon I have the Spectrum Noir alcohol marker set and several of the pencil sets. I like them too.
I love my Brother scan n cut and have loads of fun with it. For me it is my go to tool for making my own designs and crafts. You can draw with it and you can also draw up a design picture etc and scan it in and then use that design as you wish. It could be the front of a greeting card, or it could be an applique for a quilt etc. I hope you do get one and enjoy it as much as I do.
There are several ones to choice from you should check them out and see what one is best for you. thank you for stopping in it is always nice to make a new friend.☺ Glad that I can inspire you☺
@sheba2011 my little moon goddess thank you my sweet. Yes you too keep up the awesome posting of more pictures too. You do a beautiful job and I also enjoy looking at your posts. Really very lovely indeed.
@jollyjelly welcome back really glad to see you here. The posting of pictures is nothing like it was before. Yes we all had a rough go of the new forum. There are still things we can not do like before. We have resorted to using third party programs to post pictures me included. As you have read if not for @fbn135 posting up info I would not be showing my pics. Photo land do a search. Glad to see you back.
3fl2shsn Love the humming bird thank you for posting the pic. Yes do get those bins out would love to see your creations of Christmas Cards. Fun to craft with the kids. They always seem to have a good time of it.
I always enjoy making new friends here at HSN community☺
Glad that I could inspire you all. ♥
I am working on another project but it is still in the planning stage. I am going to see if I can work on some crafts tonight.
Well thank you all for stopping in. I hope to see you all again real soon.☺
Your HSN friend,
Hi, CupaTea…thanks for the nice welcome back! It did take some work
(and about four emails to the HSN Tech people) for me to even be
able to write posts on here, due to the format change. They finally
fixed something on their end, and I’m glad they did. I really enjoy
talking about crafts with all of you,and sharing projects…..and I
didn’t want to lose that! So, I hope you all take that as a big
compliment–you’re a nice group to hang out with!
By the way, I have to ask–how do you like using the Spectrum Noir
colored pencils? I hope to get some when I can afford it, as they
seem pretty good….but you’ve actually used them, so I’d like to
know your opinion of them, if you don’t mind sharing.
My project this week is to figure out how to post some pictures
on here. Ugh, I just wish they would’ve left the old system in place!
But, on we go. Hope you’re having a nice day, and same to anyone
else who’s reading along! JollyJelly
Hi there @jollyjelly and everyone ☺
Glad you could get it worked out @jollyjelly to post again on the HSN Community forum.
As for the Spectrum Noir pencils if you look at picture No. 3 in my group of pictures the Sail boat and seagull. I did that drawing with Spectrum Noir Colored Pencils. I printed the picture out from either Brother Creative center or HP creative area. I then colored it in.
I find that with Spectrum Noir they are a bit waxy and color in a bit light. I also have a light coloring hand so that makes a difference. They are very nice for shading in areas.
I have about four or five tins now. I really liked the Spectrum Noir color essentials but never was able to purchase that one. I have all the the others from that set. These I do not think are available anymore. Spectrum Noir Nature, Spectrum Noir primaries, Spectrum Noir Marine, Spectrum Noir floral. I purchase these four sets from HSN when Sara was demonstrating them.
The latest thanks to HSN and HSN Ashley ColourBlend by Spectrum Noir.
Thank you for the complement ☺
As for Pictures we have had to switch to third party web base site. Like Photobucket tinypictures etc. I tried windows one note but could only get it to do it as a link. All was well till HSN posted out that no outside links are allowed so all my other pictures were removed.
I personally do not like using third party applications on my computer. I find they send and bring along a lot of nonsense that is not healthy and is most annoying to my computer.
I think if you are using a cell phone you might have a better advantage to posting pictures not sure I use my computer. I have of late been using an application called photo Land. Cannot give you the link because it is against the rules. I found it posted by fbn135 over in the forum Talk among yourselves and it has since been removed. You can do a search for it. I had to create an account for it. So far I have not gotten any junk from it. It is pretty straight forward to use.
Good luck with posting up some pictures I am sure you will figure it out. Take a look around and read a few older posts they might be able to help you out. One thing with the new forum you can post up pictures from the HSN site and also to post a link to the products on the HSN site. Using the IMG and Link tabs.
Ok well you have a great day hope I was able to shed some light on to your questions.☺
