Just About The Details

What have you been doing lately?

Well…a blog post has been long over-due… I know.   But I have been sooooo busy.   I have been through almost EVERY DRAWER and EVERY CLOSET in my house…..talk about a big clean-sweep.  A few rooms to go….a final round on the garage before a “scaredy-hole” gets installed and then maybe, just maybe, I can relax for a moment and focus back on what grounds my soul…CREATING.  But in the midst of all the cleaning and organizing and general mayhem of a house with 2 small kiddos and a full-time working mommy and daddy…..I have managed to pull off a few projects……and since I am finding the rare moment to actually up-date my blog….I would like to share the projects I have completed since my last “up-date” 🙂  This is going to be a rather long post…so skim through if you don’t have the time…or sit back and relax.  AND anyone who leaves a comment, and is a current blog follower (see the subscribe 2 section on the right hand column if not already),  will be put into a drawing to win a box of paper crafting goodies…and if you have ever seen my give-aways, then you know you will not be disappointed……I’ll blog the prize just as soon as I gather it all together…I plan on stuffing a box FULL of goodness 🙂   Here we go…

So I have had a couple family birthdays over the last couple of months and here are projects I created for the special days:

Above is the creation I made for my oldest sister’s b-day….I created this on a 40 x 40 pieced together canvas …. I had to photograph my just turned 5 year old in the photo to demonstrate just how huge this piece actually is.  I used some amazing 8 x 8 papers from DCWV….some black yarn decoupaged onto the piece…some title stamps from CTMH stamped and individually cut-out.   LOVE this paper!

Above is a 16 x 20 mixed-media canvas piece I created for one of my nephews for his 10th birthday.  I used a lot of 7 Gypsies papers, some CTMH stamps….I did a ton of inking, painting, misting, masking, collaging….I just couldn’t keep up with all the supplies I used on this.

The above project is a 11 x 20 canvas project…framed by this amazing frame I purchased at Michaels (hand-painted) for my dear cousin.  I was going for a “search-a-word” type feel here… Can you see the saying? 🙂  I used an Oklahoma state map for the background (I am obsessed with maps) and used map paper to create the flowers.

The next 2 projects are art journal type pages, both 12 x 12, that I created with my kits from www.scrapsofdarkness.com – I used some stuff from both my Scraps of Darkness and Scraps of Elegance kits.

Next is a photo of the cover I created for one of my art journals (my new obsession.)

I stitched the flourished on this book cover with yarn instead of thread … and I love the added texture and dimension!

The next project I would like to share is another mixed media canvas – 16 x 20.

here are some of my Art Journal pages:

I am creating an Art Journal book for both my kids…..full of my “personal wisdom” per se lol!

whew! lol…and lastly…here is my very latest 12 x 12 art-journal style page I created with my ver August Scraps of Darkness kit:

and a few up-close shots:

Thank you for taking the time to peruse my latest creations! I appreciate each and every one of you!!! Don’t forget to leave a comment to win a great prize! 🙂 Be in it to win it! 🙂 God Bless!
