A Generous Heart..............

I have made this album for a lady whom i met through Soul Restoration 1. Since i live in an area miles away from a craft store, where i can get supplies for our new class coming up, She had 3 hearts, This kind lady said she would send me a "goodie box" to help me out! So i said, how about a trade? I would love to make you a family scrapbook Album in exchange for the "goodies". So that was our deal! So here is the album!
It is a vintage Family themed Album. I used Basic Grey papers for this album. I hope she will be pleased!

12x9 Watercolor Mixed media Butterfly Plaque

I have been doing my Sould REstoration and it has come to and end, BUT i was gifted with Soul Restoration by a lady i met through SR1! So i will be starting that The first week in June. BUT before that I will be starting She had 3 hearts Art Journaling Course starting Tomorrow! The lady that teaches this course taught a class called She Art. I never got to take that course, but i have been able to see some of the ladies go through it and i have learned some techiques through watching. So I made up this plaque, that i will be listing on etsy for $19.99. I started out with watercolor paper, Stamped my image of a butterfly, and watercolored it, in the yellows, oranges and browns. The background i wet, with water, then watercolored with blue, and then i sprinkled salt all over the blue and left it to dry. Which gave it the effect. I then rubbed off the salt, painted grass with same technique by wetting the paper, then painting in the green, letting the green bleed into the blue. A natural effect for grass. I then tore up tissue papers, one just green, one green with little glitter dots. modpodged them on. I covered chipboard flowers with scrapbook paper scraps. Added rub ons, paint effects, and doodles. Theme of spread your wings and fly! I added scrapbooking paper on the edges with writing, and i LOVE it. I had fun making it, and i hope that it sells!(even though i hate to get rid of it! lol) Thanks for stopping by! I will be back with an album i made this past week as well.

Birthday Gift

I have been taking a course online, called Soul Restoration with Melody Ross. It has been so amazing and healing for me. We do Journaling, and art projects to get on with dealing with the hurts and devistations in our lives. To promote healing and knowing that your not alone. I was also gifted with a class coming up on the 24th i believe, called She had 3 hearts. Another journaling/Art online course. This one taught by Christy Tomlinson. Thus brings us to this peice of art. I was inspired by her techniques, and used them to produce this peice for my dear sweet friend Melinda. She is a blessing in my life and a true dear friend. I wanted to depict that in the theme of it and i think it turned out well. (I know she is pleased, i waited to post after she received it!) I hope to be doing more things like this with the mixed media techniques.
