Journaling card backdrop #2

This one is for my husband's journaling piece and the MIM challenge (it is our anniversary week that I am working on and we are doing a he said she said journaling piece.  I have incorporated journaling from the whole family and the kids artwork to this scrapbook.  I LOVE it!!!!  In fact I have started interviewing the kids and recording their thoughts on certain things (like Cece on marriage).  It is an absolute hoot!  On a side note, I went with a floral background to mimic our wedding colors and flowers.  I will show the page when it is done, it is looking fab!

It's a good life!

Journaling card #1

I don't have the white journaling pieces adhered yet.  not sure if I like them or not.  Any suggestions?  As I type this I am thinking maybe the white is too much and to try soft stone? 

This is for this weeks MIM style challenge piece for my MM scrapbook.

Watercolor MIM

I usually make a MIM style challenge piece for my MM scrapbook.  This week I got this main piece done and two other pieces that will serve as the backdrop for some journaling (I will blog about those in a bit and would love to hear some comments.

It's a good life!

PTI Blog Hop

 
It has been way to long!  I adore the PTI blog hops, but I never seem to get my act together on time LOL!  I was surprised that this one was so easy to pull together.  The picture wasn't really my style, but with Betsy's last kit it was a breeze!  I focused on the stitching piece in the center of the inspiration image.  I used the canvas for the faux stitching material (not really sure what the name is LOL).  I frayed the edges it give it a realistic look. 
 
I first stamped with brush strokes flowers then painted them in.  This is also for the MIM challenge

Craolya Watercolor Paint

I am putting the warning out there now, that I have been LOVING the MIM challenge, so there will be a lot of posts :)  This is a series of tags that I made for my coworkers.  I played around with the simply scents stamp set from last years stamp a faire.  It was a nice to bust it out.  I also played around with different color mediums.
This one started out as not the favorite and after everything dried it is the fav for sure.  I used traditional watercolor paint.  I really don't know how the lines and out lines happened, but it is cool that it did! 

 It's a good life!

Distress Smooching

I am putting the warning out there now, that I have been LOVING the MIM challenge, so there will be a lot of posts :)  This is a series of tags that I made for my coworkers.  I played around with the simply scents stamp set from last years stamp a faire.  It was a nice to bust it out.  I also played around with different color mediums.

This was made with smooching distress ink pads on my craft pad and adding water.  It got a bit messy, but I do think I like the look.

It's a good life!

Distress Markers

I am putting the warning out there now, that I have been LOVING the MIM challenge, so there will be a lot of posts :)  This is a series of tags that I made for my coworkers.  I played around with the simply scents stamp set from last years stamp a faire.  It was a nice to bust it out.  I also played around with different color mediums.

Here is the distress marker tag.  I applied the distress markers to the stamp on this one for the base and then pounced the markers to the image. 

 It's a good life!
