Creative Bliss and Mixed Media World Challenge


Happy Happy Sunday My Dear Sweet Friends

I sure hope your weekend is going splendidly.  I have been busy putting the pieces of our life back together after our move.  I am finally able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  

Today I am sharing my DT project with Mixed Media World.  Ingrid chose the theme for this month and it is "Gorgeous Textures."  I am really excited about this month's theme.  My project for this challenge is an altered composition book.  To be honest, I just chose an composition book to play around with.  It's been quite a while since I have done any mixed media and I wanted time to practice and get my hands dirty again.  Ironically, I was having lots of fun and I ended up using it for my DT project.



I used a lot of different products to create the different textures.  I hope you are able to see them on this photo.  I wanted to take more photos but weather was not cooperating.  I am hoping to add a few more tomorrow afternoon.

To create this project I used:

Gesso, Modeling paste, several templates, lace, pearls, flowers, images from one of my magazines, mod podge, paints, and ink sprays.  

I hope you like my DT project and feel inspired enough to join in our August Challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create.  Our amazing sponsor this month is The Old Design Shop and the lucky winner will receive three images.

We also have an amazing Star Designer this month Trish Latimer and her creations are sure to get your creative juices flowing - I hope you check out her blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I really appreciate it.  I hope you will check out each of the DT projects for this month.  I know you will be thrilled when you see the amazing projects they have created this month.

With hugs and smiles

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

It's Going To Be A Fabulous New Year

Hello My Lovelies
It seems I am always thrilled for the beginning of a new year. Time to put some things to rest and begin focusing on new dreams and goals.  I love pulling out my new 2018 planner and put it together and then filling up the pages, writing down my new dreams and goals as they pop into my brain.  Helps me stay more focused rather than feeling confused and lost. Plus there are some amazing new planners out there that make it fun and really pretty too.  My temporary move is behind me and hubby and I are feeling more settled.  My bronchitis and pneumonia are finally behind me and I couldn't be happier. 
I have decided to post my DT projects not only on my Hugs 4 The Heart Facebook group but coming back to begin posting here again as well. I hope you will come and visit me. I am also on Pinterest, Instagram and on Etsy.  I will be back tomorrow with all the links. My most exciting goal is get set up and doing lots of crafting videos too

Thanks for all your encouragement an…

Freshly Baked Cookies

Happy Friday Sweet Friends Today it's a Bestie kind of day!!   I am sharing my DT project which is a cookie recipe using this adorable image by Sherri Baldy. She can be found here in Sherri's Etsy Shop. Bestie Image 051 and I just think she's adorable. I colored her with Copics and used the following colors: B00, 02, 04 (Eyes) C01, 03 (Cookie Tray) E000, 00, 11 (Skin) E21, 23, 25 (Hair) E93, 95, 97, 99 (Shoes) R32, 35, 37 (Hat, Dress, Socks) Y15, 17, 19 (Dress and the heart on her hat) As you can see I added flowers to the recipe itself.  I used a letter template to cut our the letters for the word COOKIES.  I also added some white flowers to the box that she is standing on. I hope you will join in our challenge this month and the link can be found below:
