It's been a while since I have had much to post with regards to my creations .. I hadn't really been creating! No secret the past while has been super rough on me too! That being said I have come to realize that creating has been real therapy for me! It's been a place that I can go to and be happy .. and makes me feel good and gives me a sense of accomplishment! Lifts my mood, and spills into the other aspects of life!
So here's hoping this a start to much more .. I've recently met someone who has really lifted me up ... and I am so grateful for that! THANKS HEATHER! :)
Now .. no comments about the shitty pics .. I know I know .. I need a new freakin camera! LMAO
LO - TRUE LOVE
I created this back in January ... but never posted it! A LO of John and I dancing our first dance as a married couple!
So Heather called me out on a challenge to create a LO on Thursday and I didn't the chance to get to it! So I raised the stakes and called two LO's for Friday (which I managed to do..LOL) Here they are!
LO - MY SWEET ANGEL BABY GIRL
This is my Alexa when she was 6 weeks old! I forgot I had this picture .. and as I started scrapping after she was 1 1/2 years old (and before digital photography really grabbed the world by storm) I don't have too many pics of her as a baby! SNIFF! Anyways, I used some of the new Prima papers that I got at The Scrapbox!
LO - MISS YOU
A pic of my FIL a few months before he passed away! I have been thinking about him a lot lately (might have something to do with the fact that I just got back from London) and I wanted to scrap him! I MISS YOU SO MUCH POP! XOOX
LO - SWEET GIRLS
This was a challenge given to me to create a double LO .. OH MAN I SUCK! LOL I am not a double LO person at all .. but it's done and that's that! LOL
MINI ALBUM - BLISS
So this was the mini that brought me back to creative land .... it took me 2 crops to get it done .. and it was Heathers silhouette that was the inspiration! I have gotten the go ahead from John to purchase one ... but have to wait until end summer as we have to be careful with money to ensure Cody can come down! I CAN'T WAIT! LOL It was also Steph's face and words of encouragement that kept me going ... When Steph says "This is your masterpiece!" it tends to stick in my mind ..! I am her numero uno fan doncha know! HEEHEE
So this album started as basic 6x12 chipboard. I used my blending tool and a few colours of Ranger ink .. and covered every single inch. I would then take a stencil and blend over top the base inking. I would glimmer mist several colours, and then glimmer mist over stencils on top of the other misting! So the base was done! I then dug into my fave part of my stash ... my vintage yumminess that I have collected thru junque swaps, e-bay/etsy purchases, friends and other places. I layered and layered .. added all kinds of flowers and bling. I used the inspiring words from the silhouette and glimmer misted them (lemon grass .. YUMMY)then painted then with stickles and shimmers. Here it is .. so much better IRL! :)
So that is it on the creative share today! I am currently waiting for a canvas to dry so I can complete my first assignment on a mixed media class I am doing! :)
