StencilGirl & Inspiration Deck Blog Hop

Good Morning Friends today I have a quick tutorial for you on how I used the Mixed Media Inspiration Deck created by Kiala Givehand as a prompt to get me started in my art journal.

Starting out with just shuffling my cards and then I selected one at random

I decided to start out with 2 pages in my art journal that I really didn’t like it had kinda just been for doodling and so I never did anything with the pages. And these are the paints I used for this art journal spread

love the way it looks over the text papers!!

I needed to come up with a quote for my page.  When I created my girl I was thinking of how I can empower myself this year, thinking of how I want to be emulating that in my art.  So I came up with this quote that I thought fit perfect and I typed it & printed it out then cut it out and glued it to my page.  Added some watercolor drips under it to tie it into my page.

Thank you Kiala for allowing us to have so much fun with your Empowerment Deck!!  Now on to some giveaway fun!

How I used my art journal for healing

Hi Friends,

How are you?  Long time no chat, I’ve missed you all terribly – I wish I could have brought you all along with me to view the amazing sites we saw on our trip.  I have taken many photos and I will share a couple at the end but first I want to get into what I’m sharing with you today.

I have a Vlog that I did and on it I am sharing some of our trip, as well as a journal flip through and a very meaningful art journal page.  Below you can see a photo of this art journal page and in my Vlog I will share with you my very emotional story behind this page and how creating this page helped me to heal.

 

Thank you so very much dear friends for letting me share this Vlog and my heart with all  of you today.  I also have some exciting news that I can’t share yet about an online collaborative class that I will be teaching it the details will be announced in October but I can tell you that if you like the idea of using your art journal to express your Art and your Heart you are going to love this new class I’m teaching in to keep your eyes peeled for sneak peeks here and on social media along the way!!❤️

Here are some of the links that I mentioned in my blog that I wanted to share with all of you:

If you missed my little video on Instagram using this months StencilGirl Club stencils you can check that out below and here is a link to StencilGirl Club

Love handmade tags but no time to make them? How about a last minute tag for the bottle of wine you are bringing to a dinner party?  My Mermaid tags are just what you need.  They can be printed whenever you need them or ahead of time to have on hand, add some pretty ribbon or twine, or maybe a charm and they are ready to go.

Be sure you get them before they are gone, there are only a few left, and once they are gone they’re gone.  You have them for life to download them as many times as you want, so you will always have that special tag whenever you need it.

The other day I printed them out on some sticker paper that I had that is meant to be used for the Cricut (it’s a die cutting machine for those who might not know).  I just wanted to see what would happen if I printed them on this clear sticker paper and wow the result was amazing.  I stuck them to some mixed media paper, cut them out in a rectangle, used my corner rounder on all the corners.  Punched holes and added some natural hemp cord and some charms and pearls.  Wow the result was just gorgeous!!  Below I just wanted to show you a quick video of them.  Here is the link if you want to purchase:  Mermaids

I’m happy to be back here with all of you and I’m thankful to each and everyone of you in my life.  Have an amazing evening friends !!

Stencil Crush Tuesday using Jessica Sporn Designs

Hi Friends well its been awhile since I have actually done a blog post.  I didn’t realize how long actually.  Keeping up on so many social media sites along with difficult family things I’ve had to deal with has left me in a bit of a time crunch and something had to give I guess.

I’m sure there are many others out there that can relate to having so much to do yet so little time.  That being said I have a special Stencil Crush Tuesday Tutorial to share with you today using 2 beautiful stencils by Jessica Sporn Designs.

The first one is a brand new stencil that was just released and I just love it.  It speaks to my heart it’s called Love is for everyone script . The second stencil is from November’s Stencil Club and it’s called Nature and Nurture .

I hope you will grab your stencils and your paints and come along and create with me today.

Thanks so much friends for sharing your time with me today, I hope you enjoyed todays tutorial and if you did please leave me a comment either here or on my Youtube Channel I truly love to hear from all of you.  Don’t forget to subscribe to my channel so you can get a steady dose of inspiration.  If you missed my first tutorial for the Roben Marie Smith Design team you can check it out right here

Have a fabulous day friends !! xoxo

Stencil Crush Tuesday & Giveaway

Hi Friends and thanks for joining me for another Stencil Crush Tuesday.  Hope that everyone had a beautiful holiday this past week or weekend if you celebrate.  I certainly enjoyed the lovely weather we had for the most part and YEAH my Autumn Cherry Trees and Weeping Cherry have started to blossom so excited.  Especially because the crazy weather we had last year where it warmed way up way too early and then we had several frosts and snow my trees last year didn’t get any blooms :(.  So I was thrilled to see the blossoming this weekend for sure!!

So to catch you all up on a few happenings in my life, March and the beginning of April have been very hard for me it is this time last year that my dad fell terminally ill (which we found out in March and lost him just 5 weeks later) that in turn spiraled things for me with my mom having dementia and having to find her a home.  So for the past few weeks I have honestly been in a funk.  I know….. you wouldn’t know it from my social media feeds as I don’t typically talk about things that are bothering me as I tend to really keep to myself and withdraw when times like this happen for me and I just need my quite space I guess with my family.  So if I have not been commenting or chatting etc lately as much on FB and IG well now you know where I’ve been.

So on with some happier news ….. well I have several creative things in the works that I have also have had my head buried in and will for a few more weeks that I am just bursting at the seams to share with you but can’t quite yet!  But soon I promise!!

So on to today’s video and giveaway ……what giveaway ???? yup you read that right all the details will be in the video details so be sure to check it out on my Youtube Channel and below is a photo of the prize!!

And of course without further ado today’s video 🙂
