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.

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…

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:

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…
