Broken Fence…..


I did another page this weekend while at the cabin as well.   I thought if I was doing one side I may as well do the other side too….lol.  I used a piece of paper from my BoBunny Back To Backs set and a page called Gabrielle Flight and adhered it to the page using my Golden Matte Medium.  I then took some of my Liquitex Basic’s Raw Siena acrylic paint and a dry brush and loosely painted around the edges and into the middle of the page to blend in the edges.  I then painted a sparse layer of the Lindy’s Stamp Gang Crow’s Nest Copper Color Shot that I’d mixed with my Windsor & Newton Artists’ Acrylic Matt UV Varnish to. I’d also used the back of my stencil I’d used for the previous coffee page and turned it over and wiped off the excess spray onto this page to add that pop of teal.  I decided I’d try out one of the goodies I’d received in a recent Prima blow out sale package and used the Flocked Rub-Ons that we a kind of yellow color.  They added great texture and I decided to paint them to make them darker to match the page better using my Lindy’s Stamp Gang Burnished Brass Moon Shadow Mist.  I added my quote using my Faber Castell PITT pen brush and colored in the open spaces using my Uni-Bal Signo white gel pen.  I like the colors on this page and especially like the flocked outline of the two vintage girls at the bottom of the page.



The bottom of the page has a flocked sentiment that says “The Best Moments”.



So, that’s it for what I created this past weekend.  I played with some new products that I love and had a blast.  Not sure if I’ll get anything accomplished this evening or not…..we’ll have to see.

Off to go make myself a cup of tea and relax for a bit.  Thanks for popping your heads in!



Coffee friend.


I played along with another one of Sunday’s With Sandee while I was at the cabin.   I thought I’d be spending more time creating, but you know how that happens.  I used some of my Tim Holtz Composer Tissue wrap for the background on the page and adhered it with my Golden Matte Medium, I used one of my home-made stencils for the chevron shapes for my table using my Liquitex Basics Raw Umber acrylic paint and then painted over it and the rest of the page with some of my Crow’s Nest Copper Color Shot that I’d mixed up with some Winsor & Newton Matt UV Varnish.  Love the color with a slight touch of shimmer it added to the page.  I then took my Crafter’s Workshop Mini Circle Grid stencil that I got in my November 2013 Mixed Media kit at the Frosted Desgins on-line store and sprayed some of my Lindy’s Stamp Gang Time Travel Teal that is also available in the Frosted Design’s on-line store in their Industrial Chic set.  I drew out the coffee mug, painted it with my Liquitex Basics Cadmium Red Medium Hue acrylic paint and did some doodling on and added some of my Crow’s Nest Copper Color Shot at the top of the mug for the coffee.  I found the coffee quote on Pinterest and away I went with my Faber Castell Pitt Pen brush and my Uni-Bal Signo White Gel pen!

Here’s the completed page…..which I did for my friend Tamiko who is a coffee guru…..enjoy!!!



I don’t like my coffee mug…..but it’s glued down and I’m not changing it now. LOL.  I never have developed a taste for coffee and never drink it.  I’m a tea body all the way!!  I have my Grandmother’s old tea pot with metal insulated tea cozy and all……along with instructions on how to make the perfect cup of tea.  Not that I always make it that way…..but I do know how!

Thanks for popping in…..off to do a second post.  (Don’t want Sandee to have to read too much in one sitting….LOL)
