Here’s my art haul.
A trade from LEP gave me the opportunity to pick up some goodies at Daiso.
The Freckled Fawn Kits went live today, I think it’s a great deal ($35 for about 9-11 products and an amazing zipped bag).
You can check out the reveal today. I don’t get anything if you check it out, but if you want me to, I think I can give you a special code to track it.
These kits have been selling out, and they aren’t currently, so it’s a great time to check it out now.
So I spent my #AwesomeLadyProject last night working on my #MyDetailsClass album.
Totally awesome way to spend time and create! I needed the time. My husband is sick, so I was able to just grab my Freckled Fawn Oh Deer Me embellishment kit, my Amy Tangerine Plus One Project Life cards and get to work!
Yes, I wrote song lyrics on a piece of notebook paper that was folded like one of those notes from high school. As an homage to me writing out song lyrics longhand for YEARS. I also love what I did with the layering of the letter stickers (sometimes out of necessity before that). I love that this emphasizes me *right now.* It completely encompasses me. I’m in love with the products and my favorite card would have to be the tech card (pink heart), which I used a gelly roll sparkly gel pen for the background and I wrote some of my favorite tech in the heart. If you don’t look at it just right, it looks like some kind of barcode, which is what I was hoping for. Had I really been thinking I might have added a QR code leading to a video I made!
But, I’m jumping ahead of myself.The whole idea for this project for me was to challenge myself to do the project, within the timeline and commit to really finishing the project. I took my Simpsons mini moleskine and wrote out my ideas and thoughts for each day (which was extremely helpful). I love the way it turned out. I didn’t focus on perfection, I focused on me, and it was GLORIOUS!
It’s Tuesday, and I’m being all wordy.
Prepping a letter that’s long overdue to go out, as well as a comic care package to my brother.
Yay! Very exciting stuff, eh?
I’ve been journalling nearly every day (except weekends)–this is really rare for me, usually it’s the opposite. And I’ve been experimenting with script and art elements, so that’s cool.
More later, once I feel good about posting it!
I’m challenging myself to get messy every Monday and I want you to join me…
I decided to make a card for a friend (a belated birthday—oops!). So I pulled out the memento ink (Black), the Lawn Fawn Sushi set and my Copics. I found a 6×6 sheet in my stash from Cosmo Cricket (A travel line from many years ago) and adhesived that to a carstock base.
The inside has a stamped sentiment ‘I like the way you roll.’
I colored with a few different colors of green and some lighter shades, and I am really happy with the way the shading turned out. It’s been years since I got my copics out and played with them, so this was perfect.
I even have some ink on my hands—how cool is that?

I really liked the idea of this prompt. I love quotes, so the hardest part was selecting 7 quotes that I felt best represented me at this point.
I user some sparkly gelly roll pen for the lower right hand quote, but the picture doesn’t do it justice. I really love the Disney quote and card. The vellum stickers are from freckled fawn’s latest kit.
More freckled fawn, and some amazing quotes. Very inspiring.
Taking a leap and taking an ecourse… All about me, which I am actually liking a lot more than I thought I would (Part of me thought that I would be really boring people if I did this, but I’m actually happy I took the leap).
I had gone through a few different things that I wanted to try, including a Basic Gray binder (which I have since turned into a sticker book–like serious regression, here).
I ended up using an AC mini binder that I got with the Amy Tan Plus One PL mini kit I got from HSN. It is currently sold out, so I am really happy I snagged it when I did. As you may or may not know, Amy Tangerine is one of my favorite designers. And I love project life. So an Amy Tangerine Project Life kit is like a dream come true. Coupled with the great colors in the kit (bright colors contrast well with the basic black, white and gray in the kit), it’s a no-brainer. I also got some photo protectors with it, that will slide right over a picture to give just the right amount of ‘ooomph’.
I plan on using some of my Instax pictures, along with the above products, and my amazingly awesome and way functional Freckled Fawn kit. I might even add some Elle’s studio pieces from one of their monthly kits because they look so close to the Plus one colors…
