latest creations

Hey everyone! I'm very sorry for the lack of posts lately, I have not forgotten about this blog, I have just been busy with the beginning of the Fall season and job searching. I've decided I will do a "One word Wednesday" journal page every other week or so from now on instead of every week. This is easier for me and makes more sense.

Even though I haven't posted lately, I still have been working on some projects and I want to show you what I've done! I am going to be selling these in my etsy shop that I'm opening soon. I still have to get a few more things together and then it will be open, hopefully by the beginning of October!

This is a 6 x 12 mixed media piece on wood.. I don't know if you can tell, but the whole top part is made from painted paper towels that I collaged. It created a lot of texture. I was just playing around one day and thought they would be pretty cool to use. I used the colors in the paper towels to decide how the rest of the piece would look. I used golden acrylics, watersoluble crayons, foam letter stamps, stencils, and embellishments! :)

Not too long ago I thought that it would be fun to make some cards.. I created this first one above by layering paint and rubber stamps for the background and then covering it up a bit with the light pink and stenciling the words on. I used small flowers made of ribbon from a.c. moore for the corners and small pearls for the middle. The parts that look like lace are paper doilies! I really like how it came out.

This is a second card I'm working on that isn't finished yet. I rubbed and ink pad all over the front and back of the card and then covered it with oil pastels to make a background. I then dripped some black ink all over it. I love the grungy look it has and how it looks with the flower. This will probably be either a thank you or birthday card!

I will be back soon with some new journal pages! I haven't been doing as much journaling lately but I'm hoping my mojo will come back soon! Thank you to everyone for your nice comments and a big hello to my new followers! Have a great day :)
