Heartfelt Thanks!

Heartfelt Thanks
Any day is a good day to show gratitude and I'm sharing this handmade watercolor card made with this gorgeous Heartfelt Rose stamp set from Stamplorations.

Heartfelt Thanks
I've embossed the image and sentiment with gold honey pearl WOW embossing powder on watercolor cardstock. Then colored it in with Sennelier watercolors and handmade watercolors from Cloves and honey. Matted it onto grey card stock and rounded the corners. Then adhered it onto a 4x6 notecard on which I have adhered a piece of gelli printed paper. I like how the design comes together.

Heartfelt thanks 💖 A card made with @stamplorations stamps and @pfeifferartsupply and @clovesandhoney watercolors. Have a great thanksgiving to those whom celebrate it 💖 _________ #thankyou #thankyounotes #thankyoucards #he
If you tilt the card into the light you can see the shimmering of the watercolors in the rose. 

Over at Stamplorations is a wonderful bloghop and annual wishlist linky party going on in which new designs are being showcased and you could potentially win your wishlist if you link up and share projects! So come and join the fun :) Want to know what's on my wishlist? Take a peek here (and I just keep adding things to it because there are just so many new wonderful designs!!) 



I'm also entering this in the Stamplorations Never Ending Anything goes challenge

Mail Art Monday: Autumnal Greetings

Autumn Mail Art Monday

Not sure if you have noticed but my Mail Art Monday section has been quiet lately but today I finally had some mojo back to decorate an envelope as I also finally was getting some snail mail ready for a friend. So I thought I would share it right away as well, seeing the last days of autumn are nearing...it's getting colder and slowly the grey tones are taking over from these lovely amber tones. The base is an ivory envelope and I took a few autumn leaf stamps with a script stamp and just build from there.

And this is the back of the envelope. I used a few distress oxides to blend inwards and added come accents with a gold marker. I edged the envelope with memento cocoa ink and called it done. It took under 15 minutes to make, a nice and quick envie to get my mail art juices flowing again.

Autumn Mail Art Monday
These are stamps and tools I used. Only think missing is the script stamp from Paper Artsy. From top to bottom the stamps are from Impression Obsession, Inkadinkadoo and Hero Arts. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all are enjoying the last days of autumn as well.

WIP: Watercolor Practice

Work in progress, autumnal fairy girl with #janedavenport #watercolorpaint in a @moleskine_world watercolor pocket book.

The past weekend I have been working with my water colors again and sharing some work in progress today.  I took out my Jane Davenports Neutrals and Brights sets and went to work in my Watercoloringbook (A pocket moleskine I stamped some fun rubber stamp images in) This cute little fairy is from Sweetpea designs and I wanted her to have a fun autumnal look. I really loved working on the hair and stripey socks on this one :)

More #watercolorpractice on scrap papers.
On a scrap piece I colored this fairy from VLVS! and used a lot of glittery watercolors from Cloves and Honey. You can see the finished art journal page HERE.

On my desk, watercolor practice = a happy relaxed saturday 😄 What are you working on to today? __________ #mailart #mailartist #mixedmediaart #mixedmedia #mixedmediaartist #artistsofinstagram #ATC #creativejourney #createeveryday #rubberstampart #ru
And another fun VLVS! design and she has an ATC format. A little sneak peek to a future post where I turn this into a little inspiration ATC card.

I absolutely LOVe working with my water colors and I have found that coloring my rubber stamped images with them really brings so much joy :) Sharing these desk shots over at Julia for WOYWW today. Looking forward to catch up with you all. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all are having a wonderful day.

Hi everyone! It's my turn today over at VLVS! blog to share a project I made. If you have been following me on my instagram, you perhaps have been seeing this process in my stories and some sneak peeks on my feed. This Whimsical Fairy Lady from the newest releases from VLVS! is a cutie for sure and she does leave a sparkle everywhere she goes :) 

To read more about how I made it and which stamps I used, I'm inviting you to go over to my blog post at VLVS! for more close up and process pictures.

Art Journal: Spiritual Journey

Art Journal: Spiritual Journey

Today I would like to share another Art Journal made with a lot of movement, color and soul.

This piece started on a gelli printed paper which I have applied color on with distress ink pads to give it a Galaxy color theme. Then stamped the wonderful Journey Collage stamp from Stampotique Originals with Jet Black Staz on ink. I stamped Scribble Circle from VLVS! in the middle and around the edges with Royal Purple Staz on and Versamark and applied gold embossing powder over it. After that heat set I added gold and white spatters. I love how this resembles fire flames from a sun. 

Art Journal: Spiritual Journey
The Text "we are on a Spiritual Journey" from that Journey Collage Stamp and the Face from Impression obsession became my focal points. The text was stamped on a left over piece of gelli print on which I have used a Prisms stencil by Stamplorations and I have added accents to it with a Tombow marker and a gold marker. Then adhered to the page in the composition you see here.

Art Journal: Spiritual Journey

I really love how this piece came together and while there is still so much going on, there is still some harmony over all.

I would like to enter this piece in the following challenges: 

This journal piece represents a fire within, a calm and peaceful flicker of a candle I always have during my meditation sessions and carry with me wherever I go.
