Travel and Discover Dear Graduate

This month over at Mixed Media Mojo Monthly Challenge the theme is Graduation with a Travel twist!! Make sure you join our brand new Facebook Group and share your project with us! The new group is Mixed Media Mojo Challenges, just click on join and someone will approve you, invite your friends as well. Let's get creating and sharing!

Here is my project for the month! Ohh how I love these TH Paper Dolls!






Here are a few step outs of how I created this little 5X7 canvas board :)

After I gesso'd the board I used my TH Distress Crayons and just rubbed them in and blended them with my fingers.

I also used colours from the background to add a touch of colour to the TH ruler piece and then I added a small quote sticker.


And to add a bit of my travel twist I used my TH stencils and a baby wipe to lift the colour for the words and arrows. I really need to use my Distress Crayons more often, I really liked how they turned out.

And a few close ups of the finished project.

A final report card for graduation and the dreaded Periodic Table of Elements (I was never very good at the sciences)

This ruler is much nicer than the ones I used in school :)

And part of the travel twist, little postcards to friends while this little guy is out adventuring.

I love the Crazing Medium!! Adds just that little extra touch of texture.

Don't forget to come and join the fun and join our new Facebook group! Can't wait to see what you all create with June's theme of Graduation with a Travel twist! :) See you in Mixed Media Mojo Challenges! 

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Guest Blogger at My Grandma's Teacups

What an exciting project I get to share with you today! Tracy, from My Grandma's Teacups put out a call on Instagram looking for some guest bloggers. I'd seen some posts from her because of Southern Ridge Trading Company and loved how her booth was set up at a tradeshow, so I sent her a quick message and here we are!

Here is a quick pic of my Worn Cover Junk Journal I did for this spot. Worn Cover from TH and of course Distress Oxides, chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company, Embossing powders, charms and gemstones from Emerald Creek.





To see all the step outs and the details and close ups head on over to My Grandma's Teacups

Thanks so much for having me over Tracy and thanks everyone for stopping by and heading over to see the details!

Celebrate with a Wedding Twist

Yes we are still celebrating with a wedding twist over at Mixed Media Mojo! Have you shared your wedding celebration yet? There's still time to add your project on the original post at Mixed Media Mojo HERE

My project this week is a fairly traditional card. Who knew I could be so traditional?! LOL Well okay maybe the little tiny puppy isn't so traditional but he was too cute and he needed to be included. I was so excited to use one of the TH Paper Dolls....thank you so much Jess!! I now have used them on two creations and I kind of want to have people on everything!! :)





And yes, I used Charred Gold Embossing Powder again....another addiction! I need to order more!

World's Best Dad

Have you seen the Wild Whisper Designs newest collection?! You have to and you will need it! The World's Best Collection is amazing and the colours are to die for, anything that includes a little purple is always tops in my books! :) I did a layout of my Dad using the World's Best paper pack, card pack and stamp set and my Distress Ink in Peeled Paint (one of my fave greens). For more detail pics and a quick step out of how I did some of my pieces make sure you head over to the Wild Whisper blog today!





I could go on and on about how awesome my Dad is, because well he is the best, but I don't think there are enough descriptive words in the dictionary to explain how amazing my Dad is. So to keep it short and sweet (like me LOL) I can just tell you how loved he is, how grateful I am that my kids have always had him to look up too and that my son has had him as a role model his whole life. My Dad is my hero and probably the best man I know (aside from my son, so I think it's a tie).
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop over to the Wild Whisper Designs blog to see all the details!

Have a great weekend everyone!

May is for Moms

So excited for the new release from Wild Whisper Designs!! This is one is everything you need to celebrate all the awesome Moms and Dads out there! This collection is called "World's Best" and it is wonderful! 
Since this is my 4th Mother's Day without my Mom, I haven't made anything for this day in a long time. I always find this one the hardest of all the important "days" because this was always the newest project in Mom's favorite colours for her gift.
But this year I decided I just needed to make something and as soon as I saw this collection I teared up a bit but then had and idea for a Mother's Day card. So I just went with it :) And this is the card and tealight I created. 





For all the details head on over to the Wild Whisper Blog today!!

I love that I can mix my love of Tim Holtz dies and ink with Emerald Creek embossing powder and gemstones and a new David Tutera die to spotlight the new Wild Whisper World's Best Collection!! Stay tuned for a Father's Day project coming up too!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
