March ATC Trade

I had a great time at our March ATC Trade night at Paper Pals in Pullman.  We had a great turn out and some amazing cards.  Thanks to all of you!
I got my cards done on Monday, that's early for me!  So I thought I would share with you what my cards turned out like.
So here we go.... I call them Bubble Time.  Our theme was spring or mating season.

Hope everyone has a great weekend and I hope that Spring really does come soon!  I am tired of the snow, sleet, and cold.
Happy Crafting.

My March Dare is finished!

Hi everyone!  I have finished my March Creative Dare from Tracy Weinzapfel Studio's blog and website.  Well I think it's done for now.  I tend to go back and doodle more and more till I feel it's really done.
If you haven't watched her Monday night live web cast, you should.  All of the details are here on her blog, You really should watch her, she is a very creative and fun person!
Here are my two pages in my journal for the dare.  We had to use a song and buttons in our dare this month.
This is also my first time to try her Creative Dare!  I had a great time. I have planed another project with a mixed media canvas and some of these ideas for a special gift for my son.  When I get that done, I will share it with you as well.
Till next time,
Keep up your creative projects.

Monday and Sunny!

Hi everyone.  It's Monday and the sun is out!  That's a strange thing around here lately.  Now if it will just get to around 55 today that would be great.  
I have been working more in my art journal.  I finally finished my 2nd set of pages and also started a 3 set of pages.  I have been watching video how too's and over loading my brain.  It's been fun!  I have been working on my drawing and painting skills too.  I will post pictures of those later, as they are still being worked on.
So here are some photos of what those pages look like in my journal.  

This one is the crafty side of the mom.

This one is the Mom.

This is one of the new pages I started on my art day with my mom.  We had a great time and she got all messy and loved every minute of it.

Here is page two of the new start.  I am not too crazy about the almost neon pink that my spray ink turned in to.  Learned more about spraying your water based inks with sealer first before moving and learn.

This week is going to a busy one.  I have lots of stuff to do.  I am working on some embroidery work for a designer and need to git it done and back to her.  I have an Art Journal class I am taking at my local paper crafting store, Paper Pals.  I am taking this with my best friend.  I have her addicted to this stuff too!  Then I get to go paint some more walls down at our new antique mall we are getting ready to open.  I also get to paint a really cool plate shelf that my husband found for me for paint and craft storage.  I have to make it match my new studio, right?
So hope everyone has a great week!
I will talk to you soon.
