Unity Friends with Flair!

 Hi Everyone!
I have a card to share with you for Unity Stamps Friends with Flair!
This is a Birthday card that I did for a special Friend who is an artist and inspires me everyday!
 I used an image created by Unity's Angie Blom! I love Angie's images and I thought this one was perfect for my friend!
I printed her on Gina K pure luxury card stock and used Copics to color her in. The little flower on the easel I drew in. I do love the fact that the "canvas" on the easel is blank and so lends itself to having any image that might be special to the recipient so you can personalize it.
I used Gina K card stock for the matting, and echo park dots for the patterned paper.
Ribbon is from my stash (could be May Arts?) and the Buttons are from Button Galore and More.
I hope that you like her!
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!

A Grateful Mixed Media project to share!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Saturday!

I have a page that I did for my Mixed Media Class with Tracy Weinzapfel to share with you!
This challenge was 2 parts one to share a page on being Grateful, find a quote that reflected your feelings. I found this quote by Albert Schweitzer :

 "At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."

When I read this quote I thought how perfect for Tracy! She rekindles that spark every Monday night!
I have others in my life, a few other close friends that can rekindled that spark in other areas of my life, but Tracy is able to get to the artistic side, the happy side of my heart and Soul.
I hope that you all have someone that can do that for you! And how exciting if you can do that for someone else! Wow what a feeling that would be!
The second part of the challenge was to you a color story board from Deco Arts or their Pintrest page.
I found a color story of a Navy, turquoise blue and gray with an accent of yellow tablescape. So the colors I used were Sapphire Blue & Turquoise Waters (Deco Arts), Turquoise (Plaid) and Dolphin Gray(Delta).

Here is my piece! I hope you like it!

  I did cut the flower our and raised it up with foam tape for some more dimension.

Supplies used:
Gesso from Claudine Hellmuth (Studio paints), Deco Arts Satin paint ( I love this new paint! so smooth to work with), Stencils from Crafter Workshop, Faber Castel paint pens, and Montana white paint pen.
Thank you for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!

Unity Friends with Flair!

Hi Everyone!

I wanted to quickly share a card that I did for my Mom for her Birthday in September.

I used the Donna Downey Poppies stamp set from Unity. I love the size of these images it really allows you to blend and paper piece your piece if you want to...which I did! ;D

 I used water color paper for the image. The background is done with Deco Art paints, then I used Gellatos is reds and oranges for the poppies.
 Some sparkle fluff was used in the center of the poppy for dimension and then of course the prima crystals and may arts ribbon!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Your comments mean more to me than you will ever know!
Blessings and Hugs,
