..:: laugh & dream ::..

Hi friends! I'm here to share this week's assignment (and my last assignment) for Hip Kit Club. My final week I got to do my most favorite thing -- play with mixed media!  Here's my layout:

And here are a few close ups:

As you can see I used bright colors and added some white heat embossing over the top...

...some layers and thread...

...and a few embellishments for the win.

I also made a process video, if that suits your fancy!

Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon!

..:: mj live ::..

Hi friends! I am here to share my most recent layout for Hip Kit Club -- a Mixed Media Monday layout using the February 2018 kits!  Here is my layout:

This is a fun layout about taking my daughter and her BFF to the MJ Live concert in Chicago. They had so much fun! It was a secret! In fact, when this photo was taken they still didn't know what was going on, OR why we thought they should wear their MJ gear. :-)  Here are a few close ups:

I used the Dina Wakley acrylic paint to add some color to my background. Also, I did some stitching and added embellishments from this month's kits.

I made a video of my process, if that suits your fancy!

..:: mn&trh ::..

Hi friends! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog today with a layout that I made using flair from two different sets.  I also used a ton of Shimmerz products on this one!  Here is my layout:

I started by cutting the initials MN&TRH on my Silhouette Cameo -- using the Bebas font. The initials stand for Miles Nielsen and The Rusted Hearts -- one of our favorite bands (it's also on the hat my daughter is wearing in these photos). 

I applied gesso to the whole thing, and let it dry. Then I grabbed my Shimmerz Paints and got busy! I used My Bleeding Heart, Peachy Keen, Lil' Yellow School Bus, Well Blue Me Down and Oh Say Can You Sea (all Coloringz products). 

For this layout I used two pieces of flair from the Rock On 3 Flair set and one flair button from the Phrases 1 flair set. Here are a couple of close-ups:

I added some stars from Color Cast Designs, and a bunch of stitching to finish it off. I also made a video of my process, if that suits your fancy!

Did you know that if you buy Shimmerz Paints you can get a little something free?  Just mention my name in the comments:
