new samples

I was lucky enough to be part of a great group and guest design for Susan K Weckesser. I wanted to create a few more samples for Susan K Weckesser

so first up is a card....i used the cards from Michaels dollar bin 4 cards with envelops for $1.00 quick and easy just start embellishing and adding a stamped image. so I did do a little mixed media to this one by gessoing a rectangle to layer the stamped image on and then stamp a background stamp on it. washed the whole card with golden fluid raw umber paint. some tissue tape on ribbon and ribbon loops stapled on then foam taped the house on....
stamps can be found here



next up is a leather cuff....

Welcome to the 2013 Susan K Weckesser Inc Design Team Back 2 School Blog Hop.  Our Design Team and Guest Designers have created a week’s worth of great projects to bring you inspiration and fun -- all themed around Back 2 School. We encourage you to visit each member’s blog, leave a comment and maybe find a new blog to follow. After you have visited all participating team member’s blogs, go back to THE STARTING POST at Susan K Weckesser’s My Sweet Earth Blog and leave a comment letting us know which project either inspired you or touched your heart. Don’t worry, you have all week to take your time and go through the blogs. We’ll feature a few each day at Susan K Weckesser Inc, but will draw names from comments left on THE STARTING POST for our grand prize.
Here is the list for ALL team members, but again don’t panic, we will highlight a few each day so you can come back and visit a few at a time if you want because we know how busy you Moms – and Dads – are! You have until Saturday night 11:55 PM CST to leave a comment at Susan K Weckesser’s My Sweet Earth.
prize package.....come play along.

my project
I started with a clay pot and painted it with gesso. then i used some paint and dry brushed it around and some color shine for shimmer affect. I gathered stamps and papers by Susan K Weckesser

I cut a styrofoam ball to fit in the bottom of the clay pot and glued moss on top to hide it. I recycled the star clip that had broke off something store bought....you could use a binder clip or alligator clip glued on to a dowel then wrap ribbon on it and tie a bow....use strong glue like e6000.

the stamps are from Unity stamp co.  Susan's are here and the dream hope do is here
i stamped and watercolored banners and sayings and Susan's sweet bird, oh and the houses for the note....by the way my daughter in law Mrs. Dickinson is a teacher. i used Susan's paper from want2scrap. the black birds are metal from either Michael's or Hobby Lobby on sale.

a little twine and ribbon to finish it off.

the nice thing i can do up different saying to clip in...and enjoy or give as a gift.  THANK YOU so much for coming by.

baby-the dog

this is our golden retriever....well she is my husbands.....she loves him so much. and she will protect me when he is not around. yesterday she came to my rescue. one of life's moments that you know little miracles happen all the time right along side the rough, frustrating hard times. it was/is a rough week...fights, lack of sleep for everyone....trying to make decisions about my health....trying to do a fasting blood test (never easy for someone with diabetes). for the first time i did not wake up when my
blood sugar dropped....after turning off the lights when D'Ann took the babies i just collapsed on the couch to sleep to tired to go downstairs at 2am. I do ok most the time then sleep just takes over. i started to wake around 5 something but was so tired i told myself to just sleep.....next i knew baby was there pushing on my arm and laying her head on my stomach....i just moved my arm to touch her and said sleep then my arm was pushed back and her head was on my stomach....she NEVER does that to me....a couple more times and i sat up....out girl? went the few steps to the back door to open it but she lay on the floor and watched and i realized i felt really sick and shaky so i went and took my blood sugar and it was LOW....i started eating and she went to her bed and laid down (first time she did not beg food) as if to say my job is done. no drifting into forever sleep yet must be a message to share still, a baby to rock, a house to clean, a picture to paint, i lesson or two to learn, definitely dishes and laundry to do. put for today i just pet her head and said thanks....and remembered the fights and chores aren't as important as the people we love....and someday there will be plenty of sleep.

hug someone today

moments in life

do you ever just want to rant give the world your take on lessons learned? 
well here are just a few of mine:
what drives a person to drink who has never drank:
   *  getting the last one through senoritis
   * looking at your adult children and wanting them to know you mean you love them unconditionally     when you want to YELL what the hell are you doing, thinking or wrong with you?
   *smiling while your eye is twitching and you really wish you could just head slap someone (yep just like Gibbs on NCIS)
   *2 babies at a time
   * 4 months of sleep deprivation (although i went a year once--never fully recovered)
   * we've been married how long and you still don't get me?

any and all these things could make you say "a margarita...excuse me i said the whole pitcher with a really big straw...yes one straw for me and only me!" and for those of us who don't drink....well....heaven help us and find some way to rant really fast cause disappearing doesn't work i tried it ....they found me.

ps: why isn't Gibbs on speed dial so he can come Gibbs slap those that need it? 

pss: for all my kids going "MOM" --remember all the times you have now said....we should have listened to you.....

family and the rulers from Unity stamp co. layers of life May set . then i stamped "mother is a verb, not a noun." from Susan K Weckesser and Unity. I did use some antique linen distress ink around edges and some black ink on the graph paper. finished with a black bow.

Clearsnap fun



clearsnap products made me happy this weekend.
the grunged version....

how to make this background and card. supply list is in video.....
link to video to open in youtube comes up larger.....
I did turn the simple flowers molding mat into a cling mounted stamps......


i used ancient page black ink and embossed the simple flowers. then colored with smooch  in siren, gold lame and  sugar berry.
then i used each to on the single stamp i made by cutting off the end simple flower molding mat then mounting on
cling mount foam and stamped on card to form 1st layer of background.



I used golden fluid acrylic green paint on edges and around flowers below. i used a Christy Tomlinson stencil and log cabin
smooch spritz, chestnut roan chalk ink, and sparrow mix'd media inx chox for the browns.
I really meant for it to be just the flowers for a back ground but i just wanted to play with my fun stuff and i love collage.....
we will do this as a fun background in my art journal class. learn more here


and the finished card i did add a little white paint but i think i like it better without it....??? 
bright and happy no matter what!
