Edwin's Travels

It's been two weeks since I posted. Life has been very busy. My sweet grandson's 1st birthday, a trip to Sun Valley Idaho, and a nice visit with my parents. 

It's time for our Midweek Magnolia's Midweek Reminder. I decided to use my new colored pencils my husband bought me. I love them. To create my card I used a postcard from the Prima French Riviera. I chose to keep it simple and clean. 

Let's see what you create!

Say it with Flowers

Happy Wednesday,

I can't believe my little grandson is going to be a year old on Friday. I can't wait to celebrate his special day with him.

I hope you will join us over at Midweek Magnolias for our new challenge "Say it with Flowers". I chose to create tag with Gift from Heaven Tilda. I colored her with Copic Markers. I used Magnolia Heart & Dragon Fly, Susan Wilson leaves, and Go Create dies. To finish my tag I used ribbon, flowers and lace.

See you soon!

Mixed Media Canvas

Happy Saturday,

What another gorgeous day in paradise. I started this canvas about 3 weeks ago and it has gone through several renditions before I was happy with the way it looked.

I painted the canvas with heavy black Gesso. Used molding pasted and Prima acrylic paint to create a portion of my background. Have you used the Prima foils yet, you should try them. That is how I added that glitzy gold in the background. To take the edge off the black I sprayed my canvas with gold and white Prima spray. I chose Julie Nutting's Ruby for my design, I paper pieced her and some beautiful jewelry, she has sparkly tights and shiny shoes. I chose her paper Belle Vie (just love this paper). The butterflies were cut from a Cheery Lynn Butterfly dies. I used Prima flowers, metals and stickers.

Happy Friday

It is a beautiful day here in Florida. Sunny, warm and I can hear the birds chirping.

Next week I see my grandson for his 1st birthday. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. Then a couple weeks after that they move in for about 4 months. It will be great to spend all that time with them. However, I will be very sad when they leave. But with visiting and technology I can see him just about anytime I want.

I would like to share a card to day that I made for a very special person. I used Pion paper my Precious Daughter and Paris Flea Market. I can't wait to get the new collection Scents of Lavender.  I chose die cuts from Little Darlings, Memory Box, Cheery Lynn and Magnolia Doohickey.  The flowers are from Kort & Godt, WOC, Pomegranate berries from LLC and Prima. I added some lace, thin strand of pearls around the photo and some tulle. The beautiful stick pin was made by my friend Sandy while she was visiting.
