Hi! I'm really enjoying stamping again especially clean and simple cards. I'm trying to remain disciplined and use the stamp sets that I have in my stash rather but my wish list keeps getting longer and longer ;) 

I'm joining along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge where Ashley shared with us 3 ways to use pumpkins and dies. Ashley has challenged us to use our pumpkins and dies in a Traditional, Unique or Trendy way. I opted for a Traditional style.
I combined two of my favorite PTI stamp sets: Fall Abundance and Mat Stack 4 Collection to create my card:
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current sketch at The Paper Players challenge:
and for colour inspiration, I'm joining along with the current ColourQ challenge:
It's Day 27 of 30 in 30:
Today I have an 8" x 8" painting to share featuring a little Tufted Titmouse:
When I repaint him, I would like to move him a bit more away from the left edge and maybe I'll add snow:
For inspiration, I referred to the beautiful photo taken by the talented photographer Rodney Campbell:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!

 Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! Today I have a mixed media project to share featuring a lot of texture and dimension:
I'm playing along with the Mixed Media Place current challenge where we are being challenged to be inspired by a quote in their graphic shown below. I chose "Stay patient and trust your journey":
 I'm also joining along with the current Creative Carte Blanche challenge where we are being challenged to draw inspiration from the music video "God Only Knows" featuring the Beach Boys. I was inspired by the actual title, "God Only Knows".
I created a canvas featuring a photo that Scott took of the beautiful Notre-Dame Cathedral while we were vacationing in Paris:

 I added a lot of texture, dimension and interest to the canvas using a lot of Prima Finnabair products including modeling paste, antique silver crackle texture paste, Purple Mica Powder,, silver micro beads, black and white gesso:
 I embellished with a variety of Finnabair metal trinkets including flowers, a heart, a clock face and bottle cap:

It's Day 25 of 30 in 30 therefore, I will be linking this painting there as well:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)

Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI September Blog Hop
Nichole challenged all to create a project based on the inspiration photo shown below:

For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Fusion Card Challenge:

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a couple of very different projects to share. First up is a card that I made for my dear husband. I'm joining along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a masculine project featuring PTI florals.
I made a rather clean and simple card for my dear husband Scott who has been making custom size frames for my painting projects :)
 My card features stamped flowers from the PTI stamp Botanical Silhouette stamp set:
For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the current Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge:
It's Day 23 of 30 in 30:
Today I have a 24" x 24" painting to share featuring pretty sunflowers that were inspired by Nancy Medina's Sunflowers and Strawberries DVD:
Here's my first attempt that I shared awhile ago when I was practicing on an 11" x 14" canvas panel:
I purchased the video knowing that I needed to paint  a few larger paintings to hang in our front door entry way. I got up the courage to give it a try again on a larger scale. 
As the canvas is drying, Scott is in the process of making a custom floating frame for this larger painting and a few others ;)

I'm linking my painting to the current Paint Party Friday link up:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)
