The next parts of Beyond Dreams

Hi all,
sorry ,I'm late posting again. Work life got in the way again . And then Game of Thrones.... I got up early just to watch it , then was mega tired yesterday. Self inflicted ! I fell asleep about 7 pm , but now after nearly 11 hours of sleep I feel grrrrrreat,lol :)
Guess I needed it .
I also had a break from art classes and the laptop full stop. I spent more time out and about outside , so there isn't much to show. I only did one piece to try out the new Ecoline colors I got.
Weather is hot and sunny , and I wish I had a bigger freezer to cool down in sometimes ;)
Temperatures didn't use to bother me a few years back. I was quite comfortable in 100 plus degrees in NC. That was before menopause. Now my comfort temperature is between 65 and 70 . We don't have A/C , so the fans are running almost non stop. And even the cat enjoys the wind they create ! That must mean something, because he used to hate the fans and made sure he stayed out of their way. Unless a male cat of 18 years can get hot flushes as well ?
So ...short post today and I give you the links.

and elements

Next post I will have a few more backgrounds (also a folded one), glitter overlay, glitter curtain  and deco corner overlay.And then we are on to another kit again. I already have one lined up :)

Till then , have a great week

New freebie kit "Beyond Dreams"

Hello :)
Right on time today with the new freebie parts. And I just came back from watering my plants and actually made some pics.
Everything is growing well, my plants are loving the sunny weather we have here for weeks now. We could actually do with some rain.
The tomatoes are thriving...
 ..and this marrow is promising to be a biggie,lol
I planted bee friendly borredge
 and cabbage
Everything is thriving :)
I have celery, potatoes, radishes, spring onions, beans and other goodies
And I have been busy ! You remember all those watercolor paintings of gems, banners and flowers I made the past weeks? Well, I scanned them and made them into digital png elements.

But now some kit previews for you. 

This is the new kit you will get over a 3 week period ...2 parts each week

Not everything is shown on these previews, but it will give you an idea :)

Here the first two links, and please ignore the Magickalscraps banner on those previews. That used to be my shop , but doesn't exist anymore these days. I didn't want to make new previews just because of an old advertising banner on them. Papers  Elements

Stay creative, and I'll be back next weekend with the nest two parts :)
Till then

Wedding quickpages, 4th July freebie and I missed my own birthday,lol blog birthday , that is !
I just noticed that my blog was 10 years old in May. Totally missed that fact ! Holy crap, where has the time gone? I still remember my first attempts of scrapping and designing like it was yesterday. Then a year later a designer with her own website gave me the chance to sell my kits on her site. And another few years later I opened my own website Magical Scraps , and gave other designers the same opportunity.
That was all fine as long as my son was little and I only worked part time...but it ended when I started back full time and my website got hacked. There were just not enough hours in a day to keep up.
So back from business to freebie designing it was. I had to find kind of a balance between work and designing, plus all the other things in life... no stress.
I think I managed that quite well,lol... the proof is in the pudding. I'm still here ;)
And I have learned a lot in all these years. From Paint Shop Pro, to Photoshop, then Poser , a 3D graphic program, making my own resources digitally ....and now learning the basics on paper , gearing towards creating my own painted graphics and illustrations to convert them to vectors and png/jpg files, planning to write my own fonts eventually and learning to digitize my writing for the computer in digital. Yeah, I still have plans and lots of learning curves in front of me. In part time,lol.... unless I reach retirement age and have time to be in full time design&illustration again. ;)
I managed 10 what's another 20 , huh?

This week's homework was "flower studies" .
Taking photos of some roadside beauties to notice shapes of petals, layers, colors and shading. Because for any painting you have to look and notice these things.
White morning Glory
Pink Morning Glory
A field of flowers ...pretty ,huh?

But now to downloads...
You get one folder of backgrounds and 2 with Elements

Plus the Summer Wedding qps. I actually found 2 more on my drive. So that makes it six - 2 zips with 3 qps each

Lol, that lot should keep you busy downloading for a while :)
And yup, I have another freebie kit lined up to start for next week.
Till then :)
