Hello!  I'm here just to share for fun a little make that I did.  My mojo's been out the door because Monday I learn from the psychiatrist that the medication that I was taking wasn't the right one... that explains why I wasn't getting better and actually felt worst in some aspect.  The good news is that I had made some change myself by doing really NOTHING which meant that the darker thoughts stayed away even if I was feeling sad and tired.

And of course I also learned on Sunday the dismantling of the SBS team and that bummed me out as well...  It's a good thing that I'm doing mixed media these days... playing with paints and getting all dirty is really helping my mood and letting me cope better with stuff... I can't do much but the little I do brightens up my day.

Anyway that's not why I'm here... I'm kinda in a zombie mood... maybe because I'm feeling a bit like one?!?  That actually might be close to the truth.... and I have used a lot of zombies in my coffee little altered book.  This one is the great ICU zombie image from Rick St-Dennis.  I just love this guy!!!  And had to replace his blood supply with some coffee supply after finding the quote that I used online :)

Here it is:

Dreaming of spring - Art by Mi Ran inspiration

It's spring here!  Finally it's been pretty cold last week but this week it's better and what a perfect image to use for a card right now right?!?

The image that I used is Dreaming of spring and I thought she would be totally perfect for a little thank you card!
Digital Stamp - Dreaming of Spring, Digi Stamp, Coloring page, Printable Line art for Card and Craft Supply

For this card I made again another flower by hand.  I made the center as well and I'm really happy with the result.  Since it was big I left the rest of the card fairly CAS because I really wanted the great image to have the attention.

Boxing Betty - Last DT make

Hello everyone!  This is a pretty sad post as it will be my last one with Simply Betty.  The DT was dismantled.... I'll miss it because it was great fun!  Oh well more time for other creative venue right?!?

Anyway here's my make with the great Boxing Betty.  When I saw this digi I totally envisioned her in a ring.  So for the 1st time I drew something... I don't usually do that... but I had fun doing it.  I used my new neocolors for the page with the come watch the fight.  I did some texture using some old dress patterns that I scrunged up!!! Learning soooooo much right now and having fun trying it out... just wish I had more energy to do stuff....  Used to be able to do so much more... but I digress.

Here's my make.  It was colored with my copics.  The ring background was done using my pan pastels.
Here's a closer look at my scrunged up page.  I have never done graffiti so I had to practice lol.  I actually had to get up to put this layout on paper because it just came at me while I was trying to sleep.
And here's a closer look at the digi and the ring
Hope you liked it!


Top Tip Tuesday- Hair colour

Hello everyone!  It's time for a new challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday and this time it's all about hair color!

There's now a DT call going on over at the challenge!!!  So come over and join :)  Such a great group of ladies!

And the great sponsor for this challenge is 

If you know and follow me you know how much I loooooove Lucy Loo and love coloring her.  I have fun with her hair and I have done it in all sorts of colors.  The image that I used this time around is:Lucy Loo close up

Tip: I will share with you something that I have found out by watching a great youtube video.  I really love journaling and journals can get pricey.  Sometimes you find great journals at a reduced price at bookstores and such  this is the case of this one. However the pages are much thinner than the regular art/mixed media journals.  So my trick to you is glue 2 pages together(using a regular glue stick).  You can prep the entire book and then have fun.    And here's what I did with this book
I just love the proverb and cover!
 And here's the 1st journaling just for you for the hair colour!

Ok so this is probably the only post of this kind because it's really rare that I'm super happy with my work but this time I'm totally over the moon with the results of my last day of crafting!!!!

I redid my journal cover so from the before to the after picture!!!!  I'm beyond happy!  I can't believe how well it turned out with just paper, cardboard and some toilet paper molded pieces (all the bolts,
nuts and screws).

Isn't that a HUGE difference?!?  I can't believe that I made it!!!

Here's the video tutorial that I followed in case you want to try this out... yeah... I'm not that clever to think of this myself lol

And here's a closer look at that cover all by itself.  I used a bunch of dies from Cheery Lynn dies I have quite a collection of the gears and steampunk stuff.  I did some texture using my crafter's companion stencils.  The paint that I use is decoart (2 super old bottles from my MIL's stash that I put water in to use they were that dry) and some Heidi swapp mist (gold and bronzer)
 and the back.  I did some holes in it and placed eyelets because I wanted to have some sort of closer to this book
Here's the view of the charm that I created  following another video that I found

It's not perfect... it's my 1st time doing this but I don't care I totally looooove it!

And here's how I finished the inside!

 Here's the picture of the work in progress :)
and that's not it!  I also made some shabby chic flower centers and put them on some of the flowers that I had made with the drape that I got at the thrift store.
So from this (and I still have ton of fabric)
 To this!  I still have more flowers to make so made 2 more centers :)  I have to go to the dollar store and get more pearl bracelets of this color to dismantle and use for the next ones!!!  I ran out of this warm color and I'm waiting for more beaded chain to make the other colors...

That's it for me.  Hope you have liked this!  Can't wait to read the comments!
