I have been so intrigued with these mixed media canvas layouts that I decided to jump in and try one.
Now since I am practicing, I took a very old photo of my kids. I know now that I should have added lots more textures and embellishments to really get the look I am going for. Practice, practice!!!
I used lots of materials I already had and cut the letters out with die cuts from Memory Box.
This is a beer cap my hubby saved for me haha!
I found a few awesome trinkets from Michaels like the heart clock.
Ok, just to point out how darling Wade looks with Alyssa with his little head on her shoulder and arm around her waist. He looooved his big sister and still does but now he is 6' tall and she is only 5' 2" haha!
Back to the layout. I was inspired by LuvLee Scrappin and Butterfly Kisses Designs. I used some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and had a ball! I hope to find time to make another real soon but with colors that will go with my house so I can actually hang it up!
Thanks so much for visiting me while I'm on my mixed media journey!!!
My friend Christina has now got to see these last two tags I made, so I can show them to you guys!
The first one is inspired by Christy Tomlinson. I took one of her courses online and using her dolls was a disaster, but then using these worked fine for me haha! It is so fun putting random stuff down and seeing how it turns out.
The second one, I was going for a more "clean" look, maybe a little card-style. Both were fun and now I wanna make MORE!!!
I made a mixed media canvas layout that I will be showing tomorrow. Oh, now that was super fun!
Thanks for stopping by. I know this is different for me, but I have to get this bit of experimenting out of my system haha! It's just too fun!
BTW, I got my Prima Dolls from Hopscotch Crafts, but his site is down right now. Some people have found them at Ellen Hutson. I jumped when I saw them available. Now for some project making with them YeAH!
Hey there everyone! I am trying out my wilder side haha! I have been very interested in some mixed media stuff lately and I am easing myself into trying out a few things. When I saw these adorable Paper Dolls by Julie Nutting and Prima, I about croaked! Had to have them and play.
This is the first one I have done. I am swapping with my sweet friend Christina and made two others that she hasn't seen yet, so once she gets them in the mail, I will post the other two. They are very different from this one.
I told ya it was different! There are lots of whoopsies and stuff, but you learn with each one!
Here are the gorgeous tags Christina sent me. She obviously has a better grasp at how to make them! I love them! Thank you so much Christina!!!!
This is FUN! Downright FUN!!!!!! Can't wait to make some more using even more techniques that I am learning!!!!
Have a wonderful Cinco de Mayo day! We are having a bit of a pool party today, so I better go get ready!!!

Hey everyone! How ya doing? We had a real storm last night! Poor Rambo stayed in my lap the whole time! I'm not complaining though, since we want as much rain as we can get. I sure don't want to have another drought this year.
I have another super sweet sneak peek from Lili of the Valley. I know all you that love those boy stamps are going to fall literally in LOVE with this release. They are so sweet! These new stamps will be available at the LOTV shop on May 4th and online ordering will be on midday, May 6th.
I colored this cutie with distress inks and the sentiment below him is from LOTV called "Handwritten Phrases ". The other little tag sentiment is from Whimsy called "Ticket Notes ". I used the awesome papers from LOTV called Country Gent. The papers work so well for these boy cards.
