another mixed media project in the books. this one is for the "we dare you to create" challenge with tracy winezapfel and andy skinner. it's so fun thinking outside the comfort zone and merging two styles together. i used colors i usually don't (except the blue, tracy!). it was fun to make!
started this canvas on monday night, as i was watching along with tracy weinzapfel and mixed media monday. i didn't get a chance to finish it until the end of the week. by then it took on a completely different feeling for me. had a rough patch lately, so this is a reminder to see past the not so good and see the better. i usually put more of a twist on the project that tracy does, but i loved so much how hers turned out.
sometimes a challenge is in order to get the mind going. i felt good enough to get a little crafty last night, so i played along with this week's unity sketch challenge. been dying to ink up this cute little owl (but haven't for some silly reason...) he's adorable. i used some project life cards from stampin up. makes it so easy to make a card...
love you stamps: unity cardstock: raspberry ripple, crumb cake ink: raspberry ripple, crumb cake, jet black other: prismacolor markers, chalk marker, banner punch, project life cards
who doesn't love a hedgie? or a little note? i recently discovered masking fluid. i'm pretty sure it's been around forever, but i just learned of it. talk about an awesome thing! makes things so much easier than making a paper mask or something.
little note stamps: unity cardstock: white, craft ink: tumbled glass, shabby shutters, jet black other: prismacolor markers, masking fluid
i've been under the weather the past few weeks (and it's getting really tiresome...). so i figured it's a good time to catch up on some cards that haven't been blogged about. so sorry for the potential overload!
i love this stamp. the girl just makes me smile. we all have those moments where we just need to hang in there and be strong. unfortunately. but we get through them. hopefully.
be strong stamps: unity cardstock: coastal cabana, crumb cake, white ink: early espresso, coastal cabana, crumb cake other: corner rounder
