College Wall Hanging

Well, this was a blast to create, thanks to my hubby for helping me put it together after I painted all of the canvases.  Once it was together, I decoupaged  the pictures and then added some stickers and a big yellow flower from Michaels.  Thanks for stopping by!

Mixed Media Canvas

Loving this mixed media technique!  What a great way to use a lot of those bits and bobbles that I have in my stash!   I used Lindy's Stamp gang Sprays and just love how it turned out!  Off to make another canvas for my Son's Senior picture.  Thanks for checking in!

New Art Journal Page

I love creating these whimsical pages, though my daughter thinks that they are creepy J  I have been using the K&Company die cuts along with the magazine cut outs to create these collages.  Good way to use up scraps!  Thanks for checking in!

Happy April!

A day late, but no worries! I have been keeping up with documenting my days through the month. It will be fun to start again next year and see what I do next year. I think it’s funny that I am starting to plan things to do just so that I can write it on the card. 

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!!  I made several of these cards for family members using the La La Land Crafts Marci and Luca Digital Stamps.  I colored them in with Prima color Pencils and Gamsol.  I have been practicing and think that I have the faces down, but need more help with the hair colors.  The paper collection is Echo Park Victoria Garden, I thought that the colors were perfect for Easter.  I hope that everyone has a Blessed Easter and thanks for stopping by!

New Art Journal Pages

I have been having so much fun lately making journal pages in my new Dyan Reavely Creative Journal.  This sucker is large, at approx 11”x8 “there is a lot of room to work.  I have always been intrigued with the art journal collages using magazine pictures as well as the mixed media colleges using paper scraps and sprays.  Here I combined all of the techniques that have been inspired by lately.  Loving it!!  Have a great week!!

Getting Ready for Valentines Day

Getting ready for Valentines Day, I made these about a month ago and almost forgot to get them in the mail.  This is a complete scrap lift from Archivers, I loved the simple design and have been wanting to purchase the cloud punch for some time now.  Hope everyone has a Wonderful Valentines Day on the 14th!

Perpetual Calendar

Perpetual calendar

Here is another little project that I worked on in January. I used Graphic 45 Place in Time papers and a little box that I found at a garage sale. I don’t remember where I purchased the library cards because that was a few years ago. I am sure you all know how that is and can relate. I hope to fit many years on these cards, it will be fun to look back and see what I was doing every day from years past. This is so easy to keep up since there is only space for a few words.

I used almost the whole 8x8 paper pad and kept a lot of the little pieces for my other projects. I have a lot of ideas floating around in my head!

Art Journal play

Wow, I had Ino idea that it has been since September since I last posted!! That does not mean that I have not been crafting, I'll post a few more of my projects soon. Lately I have been trying to Art Journal more and have been hooked on Dyan Reavely's style and her products. I can't wait for the new colors and the stencils and stamps to come out, especially the letter stamps. I have also been hooked on Christy Thomlinson and her classes, as well as Junelle Jacobson and her art. I am just soaking up the different styles and will be trying to mix and match all of them. Thanks for visiting!! TGIF!!
