The Professor's Studio

Here's a throw back Thursday on a Tuesday!  ;)  

This is a pic of me when I was in college a few years ago......ok, maybe more than a few!  My son's impending college graduation has me looking back at some old photos and I decided it was time to get this one in a layout.  This pic was taken in my oboe professor's studio.  I was caught off guard when a friend came by and snapped the pic while I was frantically cramming before my instructor came back with his tea.  Wow, seems like another lifetime now.  How does an oboe major end up where I am today..........a therapeutic horsemanship instructor?  Yee gads!  How life twists and turns.

Oh well, I can't complain; it's been a very interesting life thus far!

 Sketchabilities provided the sketch layout.  I started very closely following it and then things took a turn.  Hmm..... sort of like my life!  hahahah

Color My Heart provided the colors.

I started with Whisper CS and streaked it with Daisy White Pigment Ink.  I stamped over it with Slate ink (I don't have any Whisper ink) using the Universal Backgrounds stamp.

I turned to my Cricut for the cuts and font using Black and Daisy White CS's.  I believe most of the cuts come from Quarter Note.  I have a subscription with my Design Space and sometimes I don't write down which cartridges I use.  I wish DS had the ability to click the cut once in the layout and display the cartridge name.  That feature was in CCR, but they didn't seem to put it in DS, unless of course I've missed it.  Please share if you know it does indeed exist!

My embellishments include:  CTMH Epoxy Bubbles, and For Always Fabric (the flower).

Off to dig out more
old pictures!  Have a great day!
