Using wood panels and a wash of green paints I layered tissue paper over the top and let the wrinkles fall where they may. Adding more layers with stamps, textures, stencils, mediums, foils, paints, and lots of love… I added until I was happy with what I saw. These simple panels are a delicious pop of color and texture for any smaller space in your home, cube, office, get-away… and more.

Dream

Finally… the second commission is done. This was so much fun. It’s got layer upon layer of love. Using gesso board I started by using crumpled tissue and then washing it with color. after I had the sky and the ground defined I added texture to the background with crackle medium, flocking material, black lava, and more. I used a brick patterned stencil for the foreground and used texture flakes on the bricks. I painted them with 2 shades of red and sponged some black in to finish them off. I used acrylic fibers for the grass and some jute for the flowers, topping them with pearl embellishments and mini beads. The houses are made from wooden shapes covered with a variety of collaging paper and topped with window dressing. I added butterflies and applied sparkle glaze over the top of them and then used mini Scrabble tiles to complete the painting.

I had great fun with this and hope that the recipient enjoys it for years to come.

Flying Free is what this months campaign is all about. Free from Breast Cancer! Today’s entry for Day 13 in my Breast Cancer Awareness Month Series is done in gorgeous fall colors. Gold and plums with touches of pearls and glitter. Done on vintage text style paper with die cut embellishments.

Today was a fun day. We hit the streets earlier today to get some shopping in. I finally found some make up brushes that I love and also got a steal of a deal on a fantastic light up make up mirror at Coscto. 1x on one side and 8x … OMG my pours! — on the other side. It was only around $15 so I’m really happy with the deal. These are both things I’ve really been wanting a lot lately so I was super happy that the God was shining down on me today. Thanks Papa!

Tomorrow I’ll post my Pumpkin Spice Creamer recipe so drop by for a delish cup of joe and some fall Nom Nom!
