Good Sunday to all of you

Wow it's so very quiet on my blog isn't it... not blogging as much as I used too.  Doing more videos and trying to do new mixed media things.

Somehow I've started to associate my blog with my dt work... but I have to start blogging back just for the fun of it the way that I used to before!  So I figured on this beautiful Sunday morning, I would do just that.

1st of all Happy Father's day to all the great fathers out there.  I'm blessed for having the best of them as my father and having found the best one for my kids :)  How can 1 girl be so lucky?  I don't know but I feel blessed for this.

What have I been up to?  Well last weekend I went crafting with my friend Erin (met through blogging!!!  that's why I have to bring back my blog to life).  We met 1/2 between our two places in Ogdensburg.  We had found a little family motel where we got a HUGE room and were able to craft to our little hearts desire.  I have to admit being super teary eyed when it came for the goodbyes... I didn't want to leave this wonderful time with my friend... the good news is that we can do this again and I sure hope that we find time in our busy life to do so.

What did you do will you ask?  Well my friend Erin wanted to do more mixed media but she's was having difficulty to be loose about it and just go with the flow.  So we did a JB5 album.  If you have never done one it's about journaling in 5 steps.  And for each steps you have 15 minutes (except for the image part).  Because there's not a lot of time you really have to just let it go.  And I think it was an amazing thing to do.  I have done 2 previously but it really made me feel alive to do this again!

I'm doing a video series of those 5 steps that we did and you can see the 1st video here:

After that came the best part because we just played with all the leftovers, and the left over cards and such where the paint that was left was put.  And here is the set of 5 cards that I did for a swap with a new youtube friend.  I really adore getting interactions with people on youtube or on my blog and getting a request from someone that says they would like to swap with me is really awesome!!!

Here's the card set that has been sent out :
To make these it's only paints, magazine cut outs, doodling, stamping and whatever was on the table at the time :)  And boy oh boy was this fun!!!  And this will have to happen more in my life because this is what is making me feel happy!!!!

I'm going to enter these altered cards (ATC) in the following challenges:

  1. Crafting-with-friends - Anything goes
  2. Simply papercrafts for all occassions - Anything goes
  3. Wicked wednesday atc - Something quirky - I think they are pretty all quirky maybe except for the time one... 
That's it for me!!!  Have fun everyone!!!

Lumberlife - Karleigh Sue style

Hello everyone!  There's a brand new release over at Karleigh Sue and I decided ot play with the great Lumberlife as my 1st post on this great release!

I had lots of fun making this while over at my weekend away with my friend Erin.   BTW this is a page in the middle of my journal but I'm opening it totally so that I can keep this up and standing and not show the other page :)  Just thought I would tell you all because I have been getting a lot of comments on how my book cover is awesome for other journaling pages that I have shared... and I definitely do no have that many journals lol

Anyway back to my post.  This weekend I was all about using my cut out magazines.  I've been accumulating them and I don't know but this weekend was about doing collage!  And I have to admit to LOVING doing this.
So the background are magazine pages.  I used paper pieces of the bag that the wine was put in (you can't have a crafty weekend without wine!!!).  And I handwrote the sentiment that I had found online.  I tore the papers up to make it more fun.  The image was colored with my copics.

I really love how it ended up!  No idea that it would be this way... but I couldn't imagine drawing a wood behind her...

I'm entering this journal page in the following challenges:

  1. Inspiration destination challenge blog - Anything goes
  2. Rubys rainbow - Anything but a card
  3. Kraftin kimmie stamps - Anything goes
  4. Deep ocean challenge blog - Metal or wood - I have pictures of wood all over the bottom of the journaling page, plus technically the paper is from wood lol - yeah... I know far fetched
  5. ttcrd - Anything goes
That's it for me for today!!!  Hope you have enjoyed this!!!

Sip and Savor - Scribbles Design Challenge

It's time already for a new challenge over at Scribbles designs challenge. This month it's about drinks whatever that might mean for you!

For me with the summer coming it reminds me of a nice beer on a terrasse :) My own or a restaurant!

I totally love experimenting new beers. And very often the beers of the small local breweries have totally awesome labels. I started collecting those so that I might remember them.

I thought my 2nd "En masse" journal would be perfect for this.

And I just HAD the perfect quote from Scribbles design for this it's Five o'clock quote.

I didn't want to totally cover the fabulous label so I put the digi, that was colored with pan pastels, on a bit of washi tape.  So this is the closed (well partly closed look).

And here is the open look
I hope this has inspired you :)  If you want to see the start of  "En masse" journal you should check out Shannon Green's video here:
And there's a FB group if you want to join :)  It's about that style of journaling but so much more as well.

Have a fabulous Wednesday everyone!!!


Musical inspiration - RSD style

Hello!  I'm here with a post that made me so very happy!!!  I just ADORE the sound of music and when I saw that this month's DT challenge over at RSD FB group was about us creating something to do with music.

To get to the FB group just click on the image above

The image that I used is the fabulous Sister Jubilata.

You can see my video here:

And here is the actual make with the request on the left hand side and the page on the right.

And here is the page in close up
A bunch of scrap piece of papers as well as some washi tape. The nun was colored with my copics.  My happiest found was the tire tread that I used for the stones at the step of the nun.

I had lots of fun with this.  I hope that you will be inspired as well.

Have a great Wednesday!  There's still a post to come today.


It's all about the boys- The East Wind

Hey!  It's time for a new challenge over at The East Wind and this time it's all about the boys.

Well that being said.... I'm feeling delinquent as you will see if you watch my video here:
So I did make something but I used the fab image Lucy Loo Teenager for it.

and I followed this fabulous prompt for this:

Here is the make that I did:

I used an image for the background that you can find here.

I used a sentiment and some die cuts that were given to me in a swap.  I made the tree by drawing it with a stabilo pencil and then some paints.

I really hope that you like this and that you are inspired to try this out!!!
