Beach Frame

This is a little collaged frame I did earlier this year and forgot about it until I found it in a pile of stuff to be stored away as done.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Journal Covers

These two journals were identical when I started out.  The dark journal cover was done when I was angry about something - can you tell - dark and loaded with stuff.  The journal on the right side was done just for fun.  Wow - who needs mood rings - just look at our craft projects.

In any event, they were both done "just because".

I created this page for 7 Dots Studio's current challenge (link under graphic) and the project is to feature a favorite quote.  I chose the quote: "To live is the rarest thing in the world.  Most people just exist."  - Oscar Wilde

I used Fortune Teller paper and Finnabair mechanicals.

The challenge at Blue Fern Studio for August is a bit different - no sketch, but, rather, to use one of three sets of paper:  Attic Charm, Seaside Cottage or Tranquility.  All three of these sets of paper are so gorgeous.  I opted for Attic Charm and used Calling Card, Haberdashery and Sachet pages from the set.  I also used Blue Fern Studio's Wild Flourish Bundle chipboard.

This page is for two challenges.  The More Than Words challenge requires circles and the word friends to be used on your project.  The link to that challenge is directly under their graphics.

The second challenge is for the Mixed Media Place challenge - beautiful colors and the word happy.  A direct link to that blog is also directly under their graphics.

Wow - 2 posts in one day - considering I've been missing in action for a time - that's pretty darn good!

This post is showing my tag for the More Than Words Mini July 2016 challenge - using the word "fun" on a card, tag, ATC.
There is a ton of texture on this tag - and I had to reinforce it in the back to hold all the goodies.  Thanks for taking a peek!


Back again - now I am hoping to be able to get back into my pages, journals, tags, etc.  This page is for the July More Than Words Challenge - which is a sketch and the word "fun".  You can click on the link under the graphics to take you to the challenge blog.

Mixed Media Place May Mood Board

I created a 10x10 canvas with two 3x3 canvases hooked to the bottom.  There isn't a lot on my main canvas - as I really only wanted to show the broken heart - and then the bottom two canvases have an inspirational quote and a healed heart.  Thanks for taking a peek!
