Believe 13

Happy Halloween to all those who celebrate! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo that I shared a few weeks ago of Meredith all dressed up in her Halloween costume as a Woodland Tree Fairy. She took part in a costume contest and took third place :)
Here she is in full color :) She made up her hair but needed my help painting nearly her entire body green. She looked like Shrek's daughter ;) Today after school, we are going to do it all over again for her costume party tonight!
I think the black and white photo turned out just as pretty :)

To make this layout, I used beautiful 7 Dots Studio patterned papers. I added lots of texture using a Prima wood grain stencil, texture paste 
and 13 arts glass beads:
I embellished with flowers from my stash and various die cuts:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the sketchabilities Sketch challenge:
and for color inspiration, I joined along with the colour me...! color combination on the left:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a fun and safe weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

hope... 25

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, October 29, 2014 @ 3:25 PM | , , ,

Hi there! I hope all is well! Today I did a double workout session ~ one at my local gym, Life Time Fitness and one at the Mixed Media Place Creative Gym :) This month's challenge is to create a project using black, white, grey and ONE color.
My dear husband challenged me to create using one of my least favorite colors ~ red:
 I scrapped a photo of the amazingly beautiful Sagrada Familia Roman Catholic church that Scott took while we were vacationing in Barcelona, Spain a few years ago.
I combined pretty papers from 7 Dots Studio
I added lots of texture using Prima art basics Light Paste along with a Prima stencil:
 I embellished with a variety of flowers from my stash along with die cut foliage:
 For a little splash of color, I flicked on black and red paints:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Let's Get Sketchy sketch challenge:
I loved the color palette so much, I ended up making a greeting card:
To create the card, I used pretty Prima patterned papers, PTI stamps and dies, embellished with a couple of flowers from my stash:
 For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the retrosketches sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)

Hi there! Today I have a layout to share featuring a photo of my sweet boy Griffin:
For theme inspiration, I joined along with Finnabair's Cosy Challenge where the challenge is to create a work (layout, collage, canvas, cards - anything goes) that represents the concept of coziness and warmth;
I think this photo of Griffin screams coziness and warmth:
To create this layout, I added texture to a piece of beautiful 7 Dots Studio paper using a Prima stencil and Light Paste. Once dry, I applied various Prima Color Bloom Spray Mist:
For an extra cozy feel, I misted a piece of torn muslin fabric, dried and layered behind the photo:
I stitched on a die cut fleece heart to add to the cozy vibe:
I kept the embellishments to a minimum adding a Prima metal flower and 1 paper flower along with a Prima metal trinket for the title:
Lots of texture:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the Scrap365 sketch challenge:
I'm also entering this in the 7 Dots Studio October challenge which is all about texture:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
