Autumn Colors at Mixed Media World Challenge

Happy Happy Sunday My Dear Sweet Friends
I hope your weekend has been going fabulous!
Today, not only am I sharing my DT project but it is also my turn to pick the theme for this months challenge. I have decided the theme will be "Anything Goes With a Twist."

The twist is you can create any type of mixed media project you want however you MUST use Fall Colors.  Our amazing sponsor this month is  Glitzcraft and they have so many wonderful stencils and other items.  And please check out all the rest of the DT projects - they are AMAZING!!

(This is an altered 9" x 12" Canvas)

I have been dabbling in the mixed media area for a little while now and one thing is for certain - I am hooked.  I have so much to learn and I am learning so much from all my teams here on MMW.

Now, I will confess this project was a HUGE step out of my comfort zone.  I stepped so far I was constantly saying "What if I mess it up?"  And ironically it all fell into place one step at a time.  I have learned what a forgiving medium this is and all I need to do is to keep playing and having fun.

I hope you will join in this month's challenge at Mixed Media World
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it and your comments mean the world to me.

I also entered this project into the following challenge:

  1. As with all of your designs this is wonderful. It shows a love for different colors and shapes on the left with the buttons, washers and cogs. The flowers, dragonflies, butterfly and trees on the background show a more peaceful way of life and metal colored shapes speak of industry pushing its way in to that easier way of life. The gratitude plate speaks to me saying be glad wherever you are.

  2. Gorgeous - love those rainbow trees in the background, dappled in autumn sunshine, and the little pile of treasures looks amazing!

  3. WOW, Laine! I love all the gears and cogs mixed with buttons (?) and painted. Such a wonderful contrast to the flowers. Love the background trees, too.

  4. Thanks for entering our Not Just Cards Challenge this month!

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…
