The Art of WIld Abandoment Blog Hop!!

Hello everyone.. so glad you are all here , you should have come over from
 where she will be posting the participants for today's blog hop.. we have a ton of peeps from our on line class participating and showing you our creations we made during this class.. this was one of my favourite classes to take and I want to give a special thanks to my wonderful friend Junelle Jacobson for being the best teacher out there.. she is truly inspirational and God's gift to us all!! Thank you also to Christy Tomlinson for making this all possible.. you two are so wonderful and talented.

So here are my creations up to date..

 Now those were my pages in my Art Journal..I am not going to get into any details, because if the class if offered again, which I am sure it will be , I want you to take it and learn first hand by what Junelle and Christy will teach you.. it is AMAZING, worth every penny!!
 I am still going through the classes,  it is a slow process and I want to savour each week slowly.. good thing you can get in it for a whole year!! .. this class also gave me the inspiration for making these wood pieces below.. these are my hand drawn sketch stamps that I have made for Unity Stamp Company.. I just love that they have the look and feel of something hand drawn..  It is a wonderful way that I can share with the public a piece of my art that
 they can take and make it their own !!
I just love that!! You can buy these on the Unity Website under the Ippity collections!!

Now it is time to head on over to the next participant..

have a wonderful day.. come back later

Project Life.. update!!

OMG.. lots of photo's!!
Okay I know I have not posted this in such a long, long time.. but, I was not behind.. I was just so busy that I never got around to taking photo's.. life gets busy, what can I say..
But I do have some pages for you...

Beware it is more than 4 weeks worth!!
here we go..

I wanted to add my new released stamps.. I will be adding these to the month as they come in. I just want to have them documented somewhere.. so I thought this would be perfect!

adding some SMASH elements like the washi tape and some journaling spots as well.

newest addiction.. I am going to add some of my instagram photo's.. I just love the size of these..All I am doing is printing them in wallet sizes so I get that square look and stitching a some plastic sheets to fit them in with out moving around..

well I did it .. I actually posted photo's.. haha
let's hope I keep this up for the next couple of weeks.

you can see more Project Life inspired projects  

have a great day
