this inspiration wednesday was a little deceiving.  it seemed so simple when donna made it.  but it was difficult for me for some reason.  it's the first time i actually started over.  probably not my favorite journal entry, but i do love the middle part.  made another stencil for this one, too.

supplies:  gesso, acrylic paint, archival ink,
light molding paste, tags, washi tape, patterned paper

i love that this could either be a coffee or tea cup. here it's a tea cup. because if it were a coffee cup, the "beau-tea-ful" just wouldn't work, would it??

pink forest...

catching up again with inspiration wednesday!  this was such a fun journal page to do.  it has a bunch of office tags layered on the background and it give it a ton of texture.  i love how the colors turned out, so bright and cheery.  the inclusion is a little grungier that i had hoped, but i still like the effect.  i used a color i never thought i would ever use, gold.  it doesn't show up as good in the picture, but it gives a really cool effect.  i didn't have the stencil, so once again, good old silhouette cameo to the rescue.  just typed up a bunch of thoughts and made my own!

beauty in the fight...

one of my dear friends had been given a courageous battle to fight.  she just started treatment a month or so ago against breast cancer.  i figured this was the best way to jump start my lack of card making lately and start flooding her mailbox with a little bit of something to hopefully put a smile on her face for a minute or two.  at least let her know that i'm thinking of her and she isn't alone in this battle.  i also asked my card making friends to help out.  and they have done an awesome job!

i have to laugh at this picture.  i'm so out of practice from making cards and putting them on my blog that i forgot to take a decent picture!  took a quick snapshot before i mailed it!

another inspiration wednesday is in the books. i'm a few weeks behind, posting this one. better late than never right?  when i watched this video, i was like "what the what?!?"  and thought there was no way i could do it.  then i got into the nitty gritty and it was a lot easier than i thought!  this is by far the messiest one, yet.  the orange/yellow bird is actually a "skin" of molding paste.  such a cool thing to make!!  now i need to catch up!!
