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…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
