A Winter Project…


Hello Friends…Are you in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the Holidays?

I personally have never in my life been this far behind, but I think I am going to give myself a little break, cause I did

have a major distraction on my hands this week with the burglary!  So I guess I can’t beat myself up to bad about it.

My son turns 21 on the 22nd of Dec. and needless to say I am not ready for that either…emotional or physically…LOL!

Where did the time go?  I can’t believe it!

My son is my ultimate joy and will be home tomorrow night from college!  Woohoo! Can’t wait!

Anyhoo, your not here to listen to me whine or talk about my son now are you?

Today’s post is also something I created a few weeks back for the December issue of Die Cut Crazy magazine.

I am not going to show you each step by step photos like I did in the magazine,

you would have to buy it to see those…wink wink, however, I will show you a few of them!

Here is a link to the on-line magazine if your interested.  This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad.

I had the best time making this Mixed Media Door Hanger.  Once I get my nerve up to start MM I really do enjoy it!

It all started with a piece of cardboard, card stock, tissue paper, Modge Podge, and acrylic paints.


Then I took some of my stencils that I have had FOREVER and had some fun with them.


Here is the finished product!

I am entering this project over at the Mixed Media Color Challenge.

Happy Holidays MCC Badge

Their challenge is to use whatever colors inspire you to create a holiday mixed media project.

 It’s not to late…you have till Dec. 17th before the challenge ends.

Okay that is all for me today…remember that in the middle of this rush of the

Holiday Season take sometime for yourself and be creative!

 It’s good for the soul!
