Each and every week, we look back in time and remember the beautiful art of our late friend and colleague Christy Riopel.
Christy’s designs are timeless. So many of her creations from way back when continue to inspire us today. This week we are looking back to the Spring 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. In this issue, you will find a regular article written by Christy Riopel called Journal Jump Off’s. In this article, Christy demonstrated and taught techniques from her art journal that could be used in all paper crafting projects, including card making and scrapbooking. This particular article focused on using Magenta Nuance Powders in your art journal, on your scrapbook layouts, and in card making. Here is one section of Christy’s article as seen in the 2016 issue.
Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!
In loving memory of Christy Riopel – we continue to raise money for the Christy Riopel Art Scholarship. To date – one scholarship has been given through The Boys & Girls Club of Calgary. This warms my heart knowing that Christy continues to spread gentle, caring and inspiring love through art in our world. Thank you so much to everyone who donates. We appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts.
I love how you continue to share and honour your friend and colleague with these posts. You are right about her work being timeless. A true artist’s work does become dated or tired looking.
Thank you for bringing her work back and for being so respectful of her talent.
