Nikon D5100

Today I bought the Nikon D5100, yayyy!! So glad to finally have a decent digital camera. My daughter and I went to the store to get the Nikon with two lenses. Unfortunately it was sold out!! No panic I thought. But there was no good deal further and I definitely wanted this camera in combination with a second lens. After checking the computer the seller found out that the second lens also had a special price. So buying the camera with the standard lens and buying the second lens separately was cheaper! Well, that sounded like a better deal than the price of the Nikon set I wanted to buy. I can't wait to try the Nikon and make some fabulous pictures☺

Last week these projects were made:
A greeting card for a friend. I stamped the clock image and distressed the edges of the clock. The stars I cut with my Cricut Expression. A brad on the ribbon, a greeting stamp saying "Just a note to say HELLO" and voila!! A masculine handmade card is created.

For the swap on swap-bot named : Polka Dot Passion I created this page.

It has to be a fun page and it wasn't easy for me to come up with something. Then I came with the idea to look at my partner's profile. She loves and makes dotee dolls, so my page presents a dotee doll. She is very lovely, I think, and look at those dots:-)) The dots on the dotee is done with acrylic paint by using a cotton swab. The dots on the backgrounds .... well, I took my circle punch and patterned paper. I punched those dots and glued them on the background. You can see a bit of the colour on the dots. Cute, isn't it? The page is finished with a varnish layer for acrylic paints. The varnish layer adds a shine (or matt) to the painting and protects the painting from dust and other atmospheric contaminants.
