WHOOHOO!!! Taurus #1&2 In Store!!!

Hi everyone,

Well, after many hours of fighting pc crashes/blog totally disappearing/printer out of ink/backup printer not compatible with some of the programs I use on the desktop, etc., etc., etc., I finally have both Taurus birth signs in the store.  Please be sure and let me know if anything is not working right though because all is well on this end.....so I HOPE it is on yours as well. :)  

If anyone has missed the ongoing posts about the Taurus signs, I made two of them because some parts of the world consider 'any' hoofed, male animal (aside from horses, etc) to be "The Bull", while here in the USA we put cattle in that category, so in order to have everyone covered, I made one of each so no one would be left out.

All that's necessary for you to do now is choose which suits you, or your recipient, and they remain the same price (individually) as all the previous signs.  For those who would like BOTH signs I have given a discount, so pick what you want and then have fun!!  

Reminder:  I always put my contact info, and the link here to my blog, on all of my pattern packs, so if my designing doesn't make as much sense to you, as it did to me, then don't panic because you can reach me with questions....or simply to shout "I don't get this"!!!!!!! :)  :)  :)

Happy Parching,

Perga-Zen

I am calling this technique.....Perga-Zen©!!!!  This post will be quite brief because in the previous post I stated I was going to challenge myself to put "organized doodles" to parchment paper.....remember??  Well, I DID IT, and I quite like the results!!!

Task accomplished, however, this piece is only a sample.  I promised I would share the results, good/bad or indifferent, so here it is and now I'm asking for your feedback/opinions/honest thoughts....good/bad or indifferent :)) 

PERGA-ZEN©

This particular design can be very neutral in many ways and I think that is a very, very good thing!!!  It can be used on the base card stock in either a verticle OR horizontal manner.  And, because all four directions of the design are completely different, it can be used in four different ways, which I think is totally AWESOME!!!!  That's a good thing....right??  It is gender neutral as well.  It can be for a female, or for those difficult to make cards for, MEN.  That's a good thing too....right??  Also, it adheres to the pure, traditional methods of parchment craft yet has a very 'different' feel to it which comes from the Zen.

Here are the other three views of the same design!!





See how very different all four of them look??  You get four different ways to use one design.....pretty cool, huh!!!!

I'll leave you to ponder your thoughts and let me know if you feel "organized doodling" is worthy of entering the realm of our beloved art called parchment craft......

Some "MAN" cards!!

It won't be long now and we will be totally engrossed in what to make for Father's Day!!  Where does the time go.....winter is finally over and here we are talking about June already.  In this post I'm simply going to share, with you, some of the parchment "MAN" cards I have made....oh, and I might just issue another challenge too, so read on to see what "might" be in store!!  It's actually quite difficult to make anything for MEN in parchment....after all, the craft tends to be extremely feminine, delicate, lacy, etc....just exactly what we ladies love!!!   































Now, as you can see, we have to be very careful NOT to make parchment MAN cards frilly!!!!  The bottom left card looks like it might be close to "frilly", but the image used on this card offsets the dangerously close to "frilly" look of the grid border!!  On three of these cards I have made the same grid border.....and I must admit, this is the grid border I use on the majority of my MAN cards/projects.  On the other two cards, the image also offsets the grid border.  So you see, parchment craft can indeed produce wonderful cards for the gentlemen in our lives.....they key is to keep them simple and to the point.......no frills!!!

Well now, here is the challenge I present to you with this post.  There is still plenty of time to make your card for the holiday, so, using parchment paper and whatever parchment technique you choose, make a MAN card.  It does not have to be for Father's Day (but can be!!) and it does not have to be for anyone particularly special.....simply make a MAN card and keep it as masculine as possible :))  When it is complete, please send it on to me and I will be very happy to add it to the "Guest Gallery" right here on my blog.  Please don't think your work may not be 'good enough' to share with others right here........it most certainly IS, so put together this challenge.....send a photo/scan of your project and we will all enjoy and appreciate it together!!!!
