She Lived a Happy Life




Hi there, I'm back today to share a mixed media project with all of you. By now you know I am a huge fan of Christy Tomlinson and She Art, what you might not know is that she owns an online store that carries products for mixed media artists and monthly kits. I decided to give the mixed media kit a go last month and it featured products from her new She Art line by Pink Paislee. Here's a link to her online store, Scarlet Lime, and you can view her working with this kit on You Tube. Just type in her name, look for March Mixed Media Kit and have fun.





I created my canvas using dp's from the 6x6 Petite Paper Pack and the Paper Dolls Bits & Pieces which were part of the kit. The rest is from my stash and I loved creating this 8x8 She Art scene. Next time I think I'll work on two canvases in tandem so I can shift gears and create one "light" and the other "dark." I'm partial to black shading for some reason but I really want to lighten things up a bit so maybe next time, lol. If you've never given mixed media a try I encourage you to do so because there are no errors, just cover-ups. ;) I plan on entering this in the Make It Monday Challenge and I hope you'll check out the wealth of inspiration there!








Thanks for stopping by and a big welcome to my newest follower, Michelle. I also appreciate all of the kind comments and emails that everyone sent my way concerning our son leaving for basic training last Sunday. He arrived in Oklahoma on Monday and we are all looking forward to his graduation in late June, especially his mom. :-) Have a great week and I'll be back with some challenge entries, my pansy project, and more mixed media.
Hugs,
Lisa

Visiting your blog is like watching my favorite TV program and it leaves me hanging and I can't wait for the next episode!!! This post is jam packed with amazing ideas and a fantastic creation! You are really opening my eyes up to a whole new genre of creativity. I especially like the 'no errors, just cover-ups' idea.
Wonderful creativity here, L1 and I love the bike and the key on the door and all the vibrant fun colors.
Kudos to you :)
Hugs,
