a video and a test



here is the video that shows the making of my "bliss" artwork on yesterday's post. this came about as a means to test some new fabriano medioevalis paper that i received in the mail (julie prichard recommends it for her journal class). as i said yesterday, the final video quality is rather poor and blurry in spots....i've discovered that my editing program needs to be updated, so that's my next project.
in the meantime, please accept my apologies for my overuse and abuse of the word "um" (is that really even a word?)....i'm absolutely horrified at how often i say it....something else to work on for my next video!

i ordered the fabriano cards from dick blick. they are the Invitation Single Cards, Box of 100, item #10073-1070.

Lori, I'm so proud of you! You are gorgeous, your work is beautiful and your voice is adorable!!!
p.s. "Um" is too a word!

lori!!! I am so excited! This is fabulous! I loved being able to sit in on your art workings and I love your comments as you go along using the paper and the tools...I really felt like I was sitting at your art table... (where are your funky glasses?)Thank you SO much for doing this and for sharing.

Lori, I think you did a great job! I didn't really even notice the "ums". It was so fun to watch you create and see you "live" and hear your voice!
p.s. Um is a word - you can use it in scrabble : )

Lovely to see what you look like. I love the way you make it look so easy, and um, I have a habit of saying that as well!

I love having a face to attach to your words and work. And you did the perfect job...for your first video :). I'm serious, though - it's fun to "see" you think and go through the process of creating. If you were silent, your hesitations in your hand would have been your "um"s. It's just a necessary thinking thing (yea, that's the ticket!).

Loved the video! You did a good job on it! Looking forward to more...

Mary said...

Lori, first it was wonderful to see and hear you!! And from one umer to another I hardly noticed them. lol

I love your lettering, I really need to just practice and play.

I just got the fabriano paper for the first two journals, guess I will have to get this for journal three.
I am slow in getting started.

Great video. I loved getting to see you and hear your voice! I hope that you'll make more videos. That paper did look really nice, too. :)

Lori, the thing I love best about this video is seeing your face and what you look like. Adorable. I so appreciate what a kind, sweet person that you are and appreciate every one of your comments on my blog too.
