This one does not have a video, I started to film it, then after taking a break, I was working on the card again and thought I hit the button.... I didn't. This one with went through stages...lots of ugly stages. Again I used the colors from the Mixed media mood board.

I used the Desert Turquoise, pink and yellow and white. Kept layering with stencils til I was happy. The yellow I used with some corrugate as a stamp. The Thistle chipboard piece is from UmWowStudio. I used from Deco art Metallic Luster in Brilliant Turquoise. This stuff is so creamy. its great. Glued it on the card, then added a quote.

ICAD day 50

Another day another ICAD. I've been inspired by the colors of the mixed media mood board. The colors are fun and bright. and its got pink! LOL

This one was quick and easy. I used a left over geli print. I love the print. The print has yellow on it. I stamped some stars background (from VLVS!)using gold ink pad. The dripped some pink paint down the card. I stamped the woman(from VLVS!) in the back of an index card. Colored her with color pencils. Used foam tape to attach her on to the card. I found words from my little drawer of sentiments from books I get from goodwill.

Art journal pager: Follow your Bliss

Looking at the Moodiversary board, one of the pictures was a door. Looking at my stash I had some sheets of paper with doors from the Architexture line from 7gypsies. So I thought I would do something with that.

I used the Creative Notebook also from 7gypies in the new Architexture line. I've been using it as a left over journal, for when there is left over paints and sprays. This page had already had the pink and the yellow on it. I added another stencil from UmWowStudio, with Vibrant Turquoise Dylusion paint. I outlined some of the diamonds with a white pen.I used  couple of VLVS! rubber stamps. I then glued one of the doors from the scrapbook paper .I had a piece of the birds on a wire chipboard piece from UmWowStudio. I painted the birds yellow. Glued that doen. I  found a quote and used the stabil all black pencil around the words.

ICAd Day 58

I hope to do a slide show post of the ICADS I did for this year at the end. I have done videos for all most all of them every day Ok I will confess, I have been doing them in bunches ahead of time, then edit and then scheduling them for the day they are to be up. Saves headaches of ding one a day and rushing to get it edited and up at the day they are to go up. I don't think i would be doing it then, takes the un out of it for me, thou that is the idea doing a card every day.

Anyway onto the ICAD!

I used the colors that are in the mixed media mood boards (well as close as I could. ) The background is a like a stencil. Its from recollections, part of their Bohemien collection. I got it last year. It comes in 5x7 pad, i got the pad to use as stencils. It was on my desk so I deiced to glue it to an index card. Added some gesso to parts and then color. I used the giraffe chipboard piece  from UmWowStudio. Painted him up. then stamped a couple sentiments from Viva Las VegaStamps!

Art journal page:Don't waste to be normal

My poor blog has been neglected. I've really been concentrating with my YouTube channel.  I hope to do better to keep my blog up to date.

This month is the one year anniversary for Mix Media Mood board FB group run by DeeDee Catron and Mixed Media Jen. Its a whole month celebration and a huge mood board of inspiration. I'm planning on linking up plenty of projects, but we'll see if I do.

Here is my first project, an art journal page in my junk journal.

I had glued own some medical gaze on the the envelop and picked 2 of the colors of the mood board Desert Turquoise and Citron Green.  I stamped a couple of stamps from Viva Las VegaStamps! I sprayed Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist It's Black through a Andy Skinner stencil. I stamped the Dyan Reavly stamp onto Mixed media paper and colored with sharpies. Glued her on the page and then stamped a sentiment stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps!
