"New Beginning"

This Is my first year doing the document life project 2015. I am really enjoying the process of building pages and using different mediums, so much different from other crafts of my choice. The documented life project has really taken me to a different place in my life, basically showing my true self and talent.  When I saw the first challenges I was a bit intimidated but as the process went on I started to feel my way through it. It was not as bad as I thought it would be, me coming from being a dedicated scrapbook and elegant card maker this was totally different. As I got a hold of the first one the second one didn't seem as bad. With this challenge I took on a different approach, I am more of a colorful girl using a lot if different colors with flowers lace and bows lol!!  Not for this challenge!! lol!!

For week 2: Art challenge: Gesso
Journal Prompt: "The beginning is always today" by Mary Shelley
I am using the Dylusions art journal by Dyan Reaveley, this is my first year with DLP and I am really enjoying it.  My page is titled "New Beginning" and is written as:
 This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever, In its place is something that you have left behind.....let it be something good! 

When I found this quote it just seemed to fit the life of myself and this week challenge as well. Here I was a bit over whelmed because this was a different approach as far as color, I never use black when creating a project, so here I gessoed my pages, painted it using black paint then while waiting for it to dry I got a bit concerned by all that black space and was wondering what was I going to do with it, but really wanting to start over...... I decided to add doodling around the page, doodle in the corner which is something I never did before either, Lol!! Added my butterflies which I adhered down using my Golden matte medium!  I love this stuff!!  I applied some Ranger glossy accent to some of the butterflies to give it just a little gloss to the page and there you have it.  Overall I think this page came out as a hit, and now I can honestly tell myself there's more colors out there in the world besides rainbow colors!!  I'm not afraid anymore!! Lol!

Thanks for stopping by to see my creations!

I'm Totally Awesome!

Sketch 3
I knew I had to participate in this awesome Unscripted Sketch Challenge, I use to do this a good while ago with other friends but forgot about it, but thanks to Carrie Bryant for posting this cute sketch on the Project Life Cards Swap site.  This is a 4x4 card layered onto a 5x7 card stock card, I put a little twist to the card by adding a lovely circle punched picture of my daughter, a yellow and blue circle and to top it all off I want to let it all stand out that she is Awesome!
"I'm So Awesome!"

You're My Type!

Come back and see more of my creations throughout my journey with Project Life!  Thanks for stopping by Sandy's!

It's All About the Colors!

These are a few of my crocheted items that I have been making. Some of them are infinity scarves that are made of different colored yarn, the colors made such a big difference when it came time to come up with a title for this layout.....can't you tell!! Lol!
I love to crochet and have been doing this ever since I was 9yrs. old and I am still at it.
  Here's a little crochet story I want to share.  

I remember the first blanket me and my sister made it was red and black, it was pretty big too and we wanted a box of cereal while our mom was at work which was just across the street....we left the house unsupervised and we sold it to an old lady sitting up on her balcony for a little or nothing....... just a box of cereal!!  That was kinda silly to say now but I've learned my lesson now and the most important then thing then was that cereal. Lol!!!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by Sandy's!

"Be You, Be Humble"

I just wanted to do a quick share of one of my art project I did today while scrapping with friends at my local library, this is my first realist person I have ever drew, but give credit to the artist Ajae McCain for creating such a beautiful piece of work.  When I saw this in my friends magazine I knew that this was going to be a project that I wanted to try, I love this and I think it turned out pretty good.

I am looking forward to creating more beautiful projects like this!
Thanks for stopping by!
