Friends Mixed Media Card - CMS #67

Good Morning,
I have another DT entry for Color Me Scrappy!  I haven't art journaled in a while and I think I'm having withdrawals.  So, I created a mixed media card for this weeks challenge.  Watercolor paper is my favorite to work on because it's so strong.  I then adhere the paper to a pre-folded card.  I'm pretty sure purple is my favorite color and such is the dominate color on my card.

I would love to know what you have been creating lately so leave me a comment below. 
Please head over to Color Me Scrappy and join us for this color inspiration challenge.

Materials: Watercolor paper, watercolors, acrylics, Prima Stencils/stamps
Tim Holtz stencils, Michael's wood pieces, washi tape, Martha Stewart stamps  

Embrace Life Mixed Media Card - S&P #7

Do you feel like you have embraced your life?  It all sounds so cliche right?  Personally, I feel like embracing life is like chasing down a skunk...once I get close to grab her she sprays poison all over me.  LOL! Well, it's not poison all the time.  Sometimes, we have to put up with the bad in order to reach the good.

I would love to make a living just creating art but I work retail during the day to support myself.  At the end of the day I thankful to have a job.  I'm more thankful for art and feel blessed to be an artist.  I think my freedom of creativity allows me to embrace life.

Here is my DT entry for Scrap & Play.  I went all mixed media with this card.  
Our challenge was the use the mood board as inspiration.  
Please join us over at Scrap & Play for this weeks challenge.

At The Water's Edge

I spent my 4th of July at Canyon Lake watching the waves come in.

I also collected a few things off the shore.

A Day In The Life - My Day Off

I was off last Thursday and thought I would capture my day in photos.  I tried my best to be productive and relaxed as the same time :)  

8:19am - I start my day with a daily Bible verse from the YouVersion app.  
It's free and I highly recommend it.

8:45am - I'm on YouTube catching up on my subscriptions.  I watched a vid by Mimi Ikonn called "How to Live Your Dream Life" it was such an uplifting video to watch.  Click here to watch.

9:10 - I'm catching morning light in my window.  I use this time to photograph most of my projects.

9:21am to 10:00 - A humid morning walk.  The exercise feels good and I'm blessed to have walking trails near by.  I always stop to take photos.

10:42am - Picking up mom from her doctors appointment.  I love my new Sketchers!

11:07am - We then headed to the mall to pay a bill and window shop.

1:46pm - You know what time it is!!! Michael's dollar spot.  
I picked up some paper straws and washi tape.

3:50pm - Hustling through the crowds at the grocery store for a few items. 
Finally got some cookies and cream ice cream.

11:21pm - Ending the night trying and failing to put together a layout.  I barely had enough energy to clean and brush my teeth.

So, that is what a day off is like for me.  What do you do on a day off?  I would love to hear!
