My Art Angel

Although paper crafting is my first preference, I sometimes play around with paint.  I checked out Tiare's 'My Art Angel' online class featured on Embrace Our Art.  It was fun and I got so carried away I couldn't sleep. We were to add a heart and one word.  My word is faith.  One of my sorority sister's gifted me with a few crafty items since she was not using them.  One of the items was a blank canvas mini purse measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  This is my creation and I can't wait to wear it!  Now I have to figure out what I will paint on the other side.

Illustrated Faith

OH my....I LOVE this paper stack.  I couldn't stop creating and have enough paper left to make a few tags or cards.  It's an overload of photos, but I wanted you to see everything I created.

This is the layout I made to create the card using one 8 1/2 x 11 plain card stock.  

Here's the inside view when you flip up the front cover.  The top pink piece has white sheets of paper to journal.  I just love the Spellbinder typewriter at the bottom!  I use it often.

This is the view when you open the bottom flap over to the left.  It's a few tags stuffed inside the Martha Stewart's edge punch.  The white flowers was a RAK from my sorority sister.

This is the back cover using Our Daily Bread Boho background die.

This is the front page of the card stock and since I loved all the papers I used it for the cover of my journal.

A few sheets of papers, stickers, and sentiments from the stack was used.  Lace and washi tape was added and I used a black watercolor pencil to make the papers and  embellishments stand out.

Below are three journals I made for my missionary sisters and added things in my stash along with scriptures.

This card was inspired by Viva La Verve August week 1 sketch.

Thank you for stopping by.  Let me know what you think about my creations!!!

I wanted to play with a few of my latest Sizzix items purchased and gifted.  This is Sweet Lil Easter Dress Phoebe by Robert Jackson digitals eager to put a SMILE on someone's face.  I purchased the Sizzix thinlits words from Scrapbook.com and used my Sizzix oval framelet from a RAK by Ometa.  Mojo Monday was my chosen sketch for this card.

You're So Sweet

It's nothing like popsicles in the Summer Time.  I wanted to play around with a few challenges and used Tuesday Morning Sketches to create this card.  The paper is from my RAK partner Ometa at Scraps of Color now Embrace Your Art.  It's a Love Nicole Tonal Patterns paper pad.

Oh Happy Day

This card was created for my sorority sister's husband who was hospitalized.  We are praying for 100% Full Recovery.  Their church is having a Youth & Young Adult conference this week and I know his heart is there, but I pray that his mind is on healing and his health restored. Ministers are often pulled in many directions.  I pray this card finds his spirits filled with joy on his way back to re-newness of life.

Random Act of Kindness

This canvas is one of the gifts I gave my partner at Scraps of Color RAK Swap.  The rules were to surprise them with a homemade gift and goodies from their profile  My gift was a canvas with her favorite colors green and black. I kind of got carried away with the green.  Ometa didn't ask for much on her list, however, she is a Huge Tim Holtz fan and is enjoying his on-line classes.    I just had to use this 'Off to Crop' Crafty Sister digital image by Robert Jackson.  It's so much like her photo.  It was a pleasure chatting with her and guess what?  She and I work in the same field!  How cool is that?!!  

This is the RAK I sent her wrapped in some really cool paper from Michael's.  I'm trying to keep it in her green and black theme.  Her card below was placed in a green envelope and addressed  on top of the box.

This is the card using the same digital image with a polka dot top that I posted last month.

Here's her box of goodies!!!  I even included a couple of Tim Holtz Christmas stamps.  Now that's Christmas in July!  It was SO much fun planning, shopping and filling her box.  Although I got some Orville Redenbacher popcorn, I just had to get the The Skinny Pop popcorn since it's packaging is green and back AND it's delicious!  Yes popcorn is her favorite snack.
