This weekend was the more relaxing, soul healing weekend a girl could ask for! My best friend Lindsay and I (we live 3 hours apart) got to spend the weekend taking long walks, talking non-stop, giggling, enjoying good food and OF COARSE creating!!
What I love about Lindsay is she was the girl who got me into crafting on a more serious level!!! Her and I have both changed as artists in huge ways and have developed very different styles! But we can still appreciate each others craft and are constantly learning from each other!!
My weekend was dedicated to finishing up some projects for the Bloom Girl Design Team (I’m a guest artist). And let me tell you I created my little butt off!! This will be my first design for the ‘open month’ of August!! We will all get to design a project of our choosing using whatever makes out hearts sing!! So naturally u got messy and went for mixed media!! A tone of layers, patience while things dried and more layers were involved!! But the outcome was gorgeous!! I will give a tiny sneak peek but you’ll have to wait till Sunday for a full viewing!!
A ton of fab products were used here!!!
-matte gel medium (I love using matte because I find it’s easier to work over top of and it doesn’t resist my layers that go on top of it!)
-flexible molding paste
-heavy molding paste
-BASIC acrylic paint
Prima Marketing Inc
-Assorted Metal flowers
-BLOOM GIRL stamp
-heavy body acrylic paint
-old book paper, old sheet music and old sewing patters
