Just the way I am…

Just the way I am…

Day #12. I’ve had my niece and Great Nephew here for a couple of days already and I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying them being here.  And to be able to come down to my studio and play with supplies and have her ‘shop’ in my room of stuff I’m going to purge has been such fun.  She’s a special girl (as all my nieces are) and I’m not taking this visit for granted at all.  I’m so very blessed.  Ethan’s little personality is so stoic. He honestly cracks me up.  He has one look and it’s the cutest look ever.  Even when he cries he really doesn’t cry.  He’s such a content little man and I only wish I had some extra time to take off to be able to spend an entire day with them.

While she was drooling over supplies, I was creating an art journal page in my little recipe book I tore out of a magazine and made into a miniature art journal.  It only has 4 pages in it and I’ve had fun just playing in it.  I found some new napkins at either our Dollar Store or The Bargain Store…and because I don’t have many napkins yet, I thought I better pick them up…..bahahahahaha.

My napkin collection…..


The new ones I just had to have…..


See!!!!  You totally would have bought them too…..right?!!!

I decided to use the one with the flower on it this evening and then grabbed my Lindy’s Stamp Gang Color Shots and used some of the colors from both sets Limor Webber designed called Tres Chic and Under The Board Walk. I used the c’est la vie cerise, tilt-a-wheel teal and cafe au lait.  Love these and I think tied in with the brown tones in the napkin quite well.  I sprayed some water color paper with some of the Color Shot color and added some water so the color would just start to tun together.  Then I dried it and drew out a few hearts.  I cut them out, distressed the edges and then colored them with one of my Faber Castell PITT artist pen big brush in Nougat 178.  I adhered them to the page using my Golden Regular Gel (Matte), added some cotton embroidery thread and my little quote.  I added more splatters in the three colors and I was done!




I love the color combo of browns and blue tones.

Thank you for sticking with me on this ride.  I appreciate your comments and suggestions.  Until tomorrow…..
