Change

Change is all around us. Most of it we can't control. Some we can. I have had a lot of both in my life lately and I'm learning to embrace it. As my life is taking a new direction I decided it was time to take the blog down a new path as well. I will be posting a travel journal of sorts to document our simple journeys and I would love to share it with you. Welcome!

Mixed Media Monday - "Gold"

Dream....with all your heart

My contribution for "Gold" on Mixed Media Monday! A little acrylic paint, some dry brushing, some matted letters, and a sprinkle of gold glitter! There is also gold paint in the mix that doesn't show up so well in picture.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

Mixed Media Monday - "Buttons"

My contribution to the Mixed Media Monday "buttons" theme is Sweet Innocence. It represents my little grandson born one year ago and the sweet innocence of those precious days before we learned he had liver disease. He has now been listed for transplant for over half his little life. We wait, one day at a time. God is good.

Making Monday

My grandson spent the day with me yesterday. He is four.
One of his favorite things to do is "ought" (art). Since my altered book supplies are often usually always out, it is a great temptation to him. I have given him his own book and explained very carefully that is the only book he may alter. He loves the rubber stamps , the star punch, and the "swirly" scissors best. ("Let me just snip this.")

To protect my brushes, I've made him some with clothespins and a bit of sponge. They can take the abuse and then be thrown away.

His little mind is quite creative, so I refrain from giving suggestions. I only instruct him in the proper way to use the supplies and let him go from there. He has a blast!

In case you haven't guessed, our art was worked in between enjoying Pumpkin Peeps and Christmas cookies and was thus the inspiration for the pages!

Photo Hunters - "Classic"

I know, I know....I'm very late. But I didn't have anything classic until just now and I couldn't resist getting them in the show! As I was sorting through a large bag of stuffed animals to get rid of, I saw these two Coco-Cola bears. My first thought was "Classic"! It's a perfect fit for this week's theme, if I say so myself! "Have a Coke and a smile!" (1979)

Romance

This is my first time to participate in the Alpha Challenge. This week's challenge is the letter "R". To see other interpretations of the theme, check out the comments here.





Look deeply into the page.....you will find layers and layers. Colors, textures, and patterns.


The inspiration for this layout was a couple of hours in Hobby Lobby! There were rubberstamps on sale! And ink. And paper. And teeny little brads and things. Oh, and did I mention rubberstamps? I got a couple, a few, a plethora of new stamps. If that doesn't inspire you, your ink pad's gone dry!
