Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge theme is: "J is for..." July, journey, jump rings, jewel tones, and journaling. This week we are challenging you to be inspired by the letter J somehow. Be sure to tell us how you have been inspired by the letter J this week.
I was inspired to create a piece of Jewelry using Jumprings:
This challenge was the perfect opportunity for me to create a piece of metallic jewelry using a variety of products including an Ornate plate, Word Key, and Heart Charms:
I attached the heart charms and key using JUMP RINGS:
I colorized the metal butterfly and Ornate plate using picket fence Distress paint, broken china Distress ink and shabby shutters Distress ink. I trimmed a photo to size of my sweet daughter Angie then adhered and fastened in place:
Many thanks for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a mixed media canvas to share. For technique, I joined along with the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge #7 which is to create a project focusing on the Painted Industrial technique.
To create this project, I painted the burlap panel with Gesso then applied various colors of Distress Paints along with more Gesso:
For added texture and design, I used the Painted Industrial technique to enhance the die cut house and heart.
For color inspiration, I joined along with the current colour me...! challenge:
Many thanks for visiting ~ I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Happy Holidays 24

Mona Pendleton | Friday, July 25, 2014 @ 2:20 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! I'm here today to celebrate Christmas in July! Yesterday, Pion Design revealed the release of their newest collection ~ Days of WinterIn Pion's words ~ "Days of Winter is a collection capturing the essence of Winter and Christmas inspired by a snow-covered village of old times.With images and patterns of ice skaters on a frozen lake, calming walks through a silent landscape, delicate snowflakes, Christmas trees and Winter birds you will be given the opportunity to pass on the holiday spirit to all those precious to you."

When I received the box full of this beautiful collection, I couldn't wait to create! I made a holiday themed wall hanging featuring a gorgeous image from Lilly and Siri:
I combined the beautiful image with several layers other pretty papers from the Days of Winter collection then layered all on top of a piece of cut to size corrugated cardboard. I heat embossed enamel along the edges to create a snowy / frosted look:
I embellished with a few die cut pieces of foliage, doily, snowflakes and a variety of flowers from my stash. The sentiment is from Starry Christmas:
I am entering this in the current Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge where the challenge is to feature some sort of embossing on your project.

Many thanks for visiting ~ I hope you enjoy your weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
