Some Odd Girl Portfolio

Hi ya Oddies! It's Lou Mac here with todays Project Feature in the form of a little keepsake. All for yourself to keep. Forevers. Lemme show ya.

You know those times when you're colouring up your Some Odd Girl image.. and you're like "WOAH! I'm nailing this..!" Okay, maybe that's just me (sometimes colouring can be a little hit and miss with if I'm not in the zone). Well why not use those images to create a little catalogue of goodness all for you to feast your eyes on time and time again.

I bought a 6"x4" photo pocket album for really cheap, and thought it'd be the perfect way to display some of my favourite card fronts. Here is a design I came up with using Mushroom Fairy. She's adorable. I've coloured her up using the usual ProMarkers and FlexMarkers to match my papers from a waaaaaay old pack from Basic Grey called Indian Summer.

Wanna know what else is cool? You can keep a record of the products you've used and the colours you've worked with for future reference. I've just listed everything on the back of the card, this way it is easily accessible if I ever wanna work out a colour combo in the future.

So here is a picture of my little 'card front' inside one of the plastic wallets of the pocket album. I can't wait to fill this little beauty up with Some Odd Girl goodness and flick through it every now and then. It's a brilliant way to keep your inspiration flowing and all sorted in one little handy place.

Have fun making your own little keepsake book. Be sure to share it with us over at the Some Odd Girl FB page.

Thank you for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of your week!! Stay ODD. xo
