Make It Mixed Media Challenge

Good Morning all! Hope you are all creative this beautiful summer weekend! Over at Mixed Up Mag, they have a July challenge that I thought I would tackle!!  Recycle! Check it out here...

For this challenge I used a recycled computer disc thingy, and a bunch of odd bits of stuff from my son's stash! He decided ages ago to clean out his room (he's 23), and gave me a bag of his stuff from when he was a little guy! So, I am using his recycled treasures for this as well!


I used gel gloss to adhere all the bits to the board, black gesso over it all, and then some shimmery paints and waxes to colorize it! He was thrilled when he saw this this morning. He couldn't believe I had saved all those things! Here's a few photos of the finished piece!




Thanks for taking a peek!

A Vintage Journey - June 2018



Hello all! It has been a while and I apologize to my blog for neglecting her! I promise to be more worthy!

So… I am posting this mini file folder that I made for a challenge at A Vintage Journey. I love the vintage feel to things, and it has been a while since I created anything in this style... so this month was the perfect opportunity to do so. I also love stencils, and this whole thing was done with them!

I also took inspiration from Astrid and her post on using file folders! I looked in my stash and found these adorable little file folders from 7 Gypsies, so that is where the inspiration started. 





It was a fun little project! Thanks for taking a peek!
