New Challenge at Mixed Media World - "Vintage" Theme

Happy Happy Wednesday My Sweet Friends

I can't believe it's the middle of the week already.  I sure hope you are enjoying your day.  

Today I am sharing my DT project with Mixed Media World.  For our challenge at Mixed Media World the theme is "Vintage" and I created this project using a lot of my favorite things.  I love anything Eiffel Tower, lots of lace and so much more.

Our amazing sponsor for this challenge is The Old Design Shop.  Boy, do they have some amazing designs.  I found quite a few I would love to have myself.  The link is below and the winner of the challenge will receive three images.

I created this project using a lot of my favorite things.  I love anything Eiffel Tower, lots of lace and so much more.  I started with a flat 6" x 8" canvas and lots of Gesso, white lace, more white lace with pink trim and beige lace.  I used a vintage looking Eiffel Tower as the main focus surrounded by all the lace.

I hope you will join in our challenge this month and as always we look forward to seeing what you create.  

Here is the link to the current challenge and you really should take a look at the projects created by the Design Team.  I am always in awe to see their creations each month.

  2. I saw this on the Mixed Media World Challenge blog and had to come on over to take a closer look. It's beautiful! I adore the vintage panel, the subtle use of colour and the lace which is one of my favourite things to use so I must remember to start using it on my off the page creations. Thanks for the fabulous inspiration Karen x

    1. Hi Karen - thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me such a sweet comment. You made my day!! I am delighted you feel inspired by my creation. And like you, I love using lace and don't always remember to use it either. I am actually working on using it more as well. Thanks for stopping by.

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…
