The Old Mill

Jim Harrison, an artist, painted an old grist mill several years ago.  The numbered prints sold out and now getting one is way out of my price range. This stamp image from Northwoods, reminds me of that old South Carolina mill. I made this card for my son who lives in Colorado. The woodgrain embossing folder is from Tim Holtz. I used Distress ink to age it a bit, and naturally, I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils.


  1. Wow, Awesome job with those Prismacolour pencils ! Beautiful image as well, the woodgrain goes so well with it.

  2. OMGoodness, that is a gorgeous scene and you're would look great with distressed edges! Thanks for sending me your blog link and have fun at the craft/stamp show! I'm leaving in the morning with a good stamping friend to go to tomorrow and a Copic certification class on Friday! Fun!

  3. Such a beautiful image and your prismas are fantastic! Have a fabulous day!!

  4. This is beautiful Carole! I really love the scene and you have coloured it perfectly! I have problems doing water that flows downstream over rocks ... you, on the other hand, dont!!
    Love the Prisma pencil colours you used..well done! Dont forget to post the next one you do as well!

  5. Hi Carole, (it's Tami- that you met today.)
    This is so funny, I just posted about going to the show in Columbia and when I finished posting I read the comment you left. It was wonderful meeting you. We will have to try and get together some time. (I'm trying my best to get Sharon into card making too.) I'm sure there is a lot of stuff you could teach me, starting with colored pencils which I see over on your sidebar. I've got some but just haven't used them, so I WILL be checking out your tutorials on that subject soon.
    This card is beautiful. Can't wait to see more of your work.
    P.S. Did you do a lot of "damage" at the show today?


Thank you for visiting my blog. I love to read comments:)
