My Newest Creations

So this week I made up some Mixed Media hearts for a swap on ATCs For All. I took a piece of 9″ x12″ 140 lb. watercolor paper and painted it with different colors of acrylic paint. I sprayed on some spray inks, used some stencils and did some stamping. I then cut out a bunch of different shaped hearts. I took six of those hearts and did some pen work (with a Molotow 1mm white acrylic paint pen. For the final touch I added a Stickles border to each heart. Here is what they looked like.


My next activity for the week was to make a gift for my nephew John and his wife Brandi’s baby shower. My nephew is a US Marine and they are having a boy so I thought some camouflage burp pads would be appropriate. Once side is cotton camouflage fabric and the other side is tan flannel. Here is how they turned out.


Since I already had the sewing machine out I figured I take on one more project. A friend of mine posted some images of fabric/quilted postcards as well as I’ve seen some on Pinterest. I decided to give one a try. Now I am definitely no seamstress and really haven’t done any free motion quilting so please don’t laugh at my lack of skill in that department. Overall I think the postcard came out nice. Here is the final result. I even mailed it to a friend.



Happy New Year!

Okay, so I am a little late in wishing you all a Happy New Year! I can’t believe it is already 2015. I wonder what happened to 2014.

I’ve decided to suspend Tag It Thursday’s for now. I’m accumulating a bunch of tags and making them has become kind of boring for me. So with a new year I am on to new things.

Today, I wanted to share my newest adventure with you. I’ve been spying some beautiful Bible Journaling on Pinterest. Since I am a Christian and I do read and study the Bible, I decided I’d like to get in on this art form. Right before Christmas I went ahead and ordered the Crossway ESV (English Standard Version) Single Column Journaling Bible. Today I finally had the courage to write in it. Now if you check out my Pinterest board (linked above) on this subject you will see many beautifully illustrated Bible pages. However, today I was not quite that brave and I opted to just do some lettering from my notes on the last few weeks of sermons at my church. I hope to be braver the next time. Here is what I did:
