Cocoa Daisy - April 2016!

Hello, hello! All of the goodies in the April Cocoa Daisy Kits were so hot off the presses, I just recently had the chance to work with them. So, what did I make?

Take a look...

First up, a soft and dreamy card using one of the gorgeous exclusive stamps...
Next up, turning the negatives from a cut file to use!

And, I even had a video for this one...

Here, I am putting the positive shapes from the aforementioned cut files to use...

For this one, I am playing along with the April sketch challenge over on our Forums...

And last, but certainly not least... creating a simple page to document a very special moment...

Thanks for stopping by!
See you soon!

Art. Paint. Journal. Play... Smile...

For this spread... I wanted to play around with a more expressive face, so I am using a reference photo from Pinterest and playing. Also, I am trying not to overwork my spreads... both in terms of color and just painting it to death. HA! So... I am trying to restrain myself a bit on this one. Thanks for watching!

See you soon!

March Pocket Page Spread...

Hi hi!

Happy Friday! Today, I have my March pocket page spread to share with you. I had more fun using lots of 28 Lilac Lane goodies (find it at Ellen Hutson!), Flair from A Flair For Buttons, and some ephemera!

Take a look...
I added some watercolor and extra letter stickers to the "Magic" card from Family Portraits to create my title pocket.

And the shaker card. Oh, how I LOVE it! That is all goodness from May's 28 Lilac Lane (link to Ellen Hutson) and I just can't get enough!

Oh, and the key? Also from 28 Lilac Lane, as is the beautiful green button. I just couldn't resist putting the key on the pocket with the tickets from The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Perfect, yes?

And finally, a very special moment is punctuated with the perfect piece of FLAIR!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Documented Life Project... March 2016!

Hi there!

Popping in today with some picts for you of my March DLP 2016

I am loving this project! The prompts are so manageable that it is very easy to stay current!

This month, I played with a few new things... one of which was painting a more expressive face...
And of course, the usual fun stuff too!

There is some gorgeous FLAIR by A Flair For Buttons...

And I put LOTS of the gorgeous 28 Lilac Lane goodies to use too!

I plan to do a flip through of everything too at some point... perhaps at the 6 month mark?

See you soon!

Art. Paint. Journal. Play... Exploring and Scribbling...

Hello! I have two videos to share with you today...

First up:

For this spread, I wanted to explore the idea of a touch of realism mixed in with more of a surreal or fantasy driven look. So, while the girl is clearly more imaginary, I played with making her eyes look more towards the side of realism. And, while the flower is more on the realism side, the stem and leaves are not. (well, at least this is as realistic as i get!) It was an interesting thing to play with. I love the idea and want to push it further :)

Oh, and pie charts. I love pie charts. Something about a drawing that portrays numbers.... I just love them.

Next up...
In the last video, I played with the idea of combining realism with more abstract elements. I am playing with this more here and trying to push the idea a bit further. The scribbles provided shapes for me to enhance towards the end of the page and I had a ton of fun playing with that.

Also, I kinda forgot about journaling and when I thought about it, I felt like the page had enough going on, so this one doesn't have any messy writing.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon!
