a beautiful day

Yesterday was absolutely lovely.  Not too hot or cold, no wind and lots of sunshine.  We took full advantage by playing in the sprinklers and coloring with the giant box of chalk I picked up for them.

Weeds and Wildflowers Hope Collection

I absolutely loved this amazing collection.  
Oh, In case you didn't know, Weeds and Wildflowers shop is open again.  Gina has come back with a bang and a new collection of pretty things.  This time she is doing things a little different, though.  Instead one HUGE kit of beautiful things, it is broken up into a $1 DIY kit.  Choose just what you like and save a little, too.  
Here are my pages with The Hope Collection.

Hope you enjoy these and head on over to check out The Hope Collection for yourself.

My Happy Place

I had some time last night and put together a new page for the mixed media class.  I still don't have any gel medium or modeling paste but I did manage to mix gesso, watercolor, acrylic, pen and pencil on this page.

Products Used:
Amy Tangerine rub-ons and Stickers
My Minds Eye Buttons

recent scraps

So, I have taken on my paper scrapbooking again.  It is so rewarding to pull out paints, papers and embellishments to play with.  I love the feel of the finished project in my hands instead of just a new image for my screen saver.  You see, I never actually print my digital pages.  It is just too much expense for me.  I thought it would be fun to come drop some photos of the last few pages I have done.  

This is a fun project I have started for the Mixed Media class at Studio Calico.
Its my first class and the first week has been awesome.  I am learning so much about mixing different mediums to get a fun pretty look for scrapping.  I have a feeling it will come in handy for other art projects as well.

| papers: pink, green, wood grain, feather | stickers | stamp | rub on

Of course since I love to have so much to do, I am still digital scrapping for several teams.  Yesterday Paislee Press had a new release.  I love her templates so much.  

That's it for this time.  I will be back soon with more Project Life pages.
