Mini Album

Hi,

Today I would like to share a mini album I was commissioned to create. This album is just shy of 8x8 and had to have to include a cat, kayak, plant, and something to do with hiking.

Documented Project Life 2015

Good Morning,

I'm really excited to share a year long project that I signed up for. It's called  Documented Project Life 2015 and it's free for anyone to join.  Art to the 5th Academy  is the website that will be hosting this wonderful project. They also have a Facebook group FaceBook - Documented Life Project 2015. I understand each week we will be given prompts to follow. I love this idea because I tend to lose my way when doing this type of project on my own. I am hoping this group will help me keep on track. So far the only thing I know is they are recommending the Dylusions 8x11 journal (although you are more than welcome to use any journal of your choosing) and most everyone is decorating their covers.

I purchased the 5x8 journal before I knew we would be using the 8x11 so I ordered the bigger one 8x11.

Here is the cover decorated on the 5x8 journal. I will use this for another project.

I plan to add more to it as the year goes on. This is just a starting off point. I'm really excited about this project and can't wait till Jan to get started.
 
I hope this might peek your interested and get you started on your own Documented Life Project 2015.

Yellow Butterflies: A Tribute

Here's a set of ATCs made for a swap titled "Yellow Butterflies: A Tribute"

I was playing around with some water color paints, oil pastels and markers, stamps and fabric. I'm not using the water colors correctly or maybe I'm using the wrong paper, I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong. I think the colors are coming on to thick. The water color paint was from a tube and I added the colors to a tray and mixed with water. I guess I'm going to need a lot more practice with them to figure it out.

Christmas Squash Book

My project Friday night was a squash book for the office manager at my husbands work. I don't think she is a scrapbooker so I have included some extra journaling tags & embellishments she could add to the book along with a picture of one of mine that is completed with the journaling and pictures so she has an idea of what to do with it. I hope she likes it.



 
My project is also listed in the LinkUpLine at
Stop by have a look around and add your project to the line as well.

I had company

Hi,

On Sunday 12/7 I was playing around in my craft room and I was visited by my Hubby and our good friend Jim. They came down with their cup of coffee just to keep me company. What great guys. The real truth is that it was way to cold for my hubby to be out in the garage like he planned, but we can keep that a secret hehehe!

Jim on the left - Hubby Dave on the right
(just in case your wondering... he does not work for Walgreens I do)

 
 
So first on the agenda was to get the first month of the Brooklyn project done. I just stamped and colored the balloons, present and cupcake with color pencils and used some gamsol to blend.
 

 
 
The second order of business was to complete Brooklyn's 1st birthday layout. I thought the first picture was cute. She didn't stick her hands in and squish her cake. She touched it gently with one finger and then leaned over to take a small bite. After she had her fill of cake she opened her presents and got a little push and ride ambulance. Now she can be just like her Auntie Tammy. She played with that all afternoon.
 
 
 
For the layout I stamped out and fussy cut Brooklyn's Birthday,  used some birthday papers and stamped and colored the balloons, present and cupcake as I did in the project above. Added the #1 cupcake and flowers ( that is actually an iron on decal). After I glued the letters down I had an extra h. I thought to myself how did that happen oh well and tossed it in the trash. It wasn't till after I took the initial picture of this layout that I realized I spelled birthday and not birthday. In the trash I went to retrieve the h. Good thing I was able to place it where it doesn't look to bad. Oh well it's all good. Until next time....
