'Fairy Whispers'

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow crafty girls......
I love having more time to spend with my family anytime we are celebrating 
holidays.... also means I have some precious extra time to spend 
in my craft room doing things I love....

'Fairy Whispers'

I have been feeling a bit of melancholia these past few weeks, perhaps it reflects
the season..... everything around us in the forest is dying and decaying as the sun no 
longer blazes, and the nights grow bitterly long cold and black as coal.
I have been wanting to make something using shades of violet and when I
saw this moodboard a few days ago on a lovely blog called Lawnpink
I knew the time was right.

Here are a few details:

I used some 7 Dots Studio 'Garden Party' papers, the deep purple with the touches
of gold are so pretty. I also added an old piece of 2 Crafty Chipboard, some 
feathers, lace and some Prima and 49 & Market flowers.

This page was just for me! no teams, no deadlines...just pure love of creating...
I hope you find time to do the same!
Hugs, Lisa xoxoxx

'Thankful' a new layout for Mixed Media & Art

Hello my lovelies!
Autumn is here, and I have been enjoying
long evening walks in my neighborhood wrapped in a sweater and marveling
at the brilliant changing colors of the trees.


I always start by covering my paper with clear gesso so my inks don't seep through
the paper, then I did some stenciling and added several Lindy's Stamp Gang
sprays. I used a new Sizzix leaf die and added some flowers and a few real
leaves I had gathered on my walk :)
I was inspired by the nature woodland feel and the rusty reds and greens of fall.
I hope you feel inspired by our new moodboard and join us!

For more info on how to enter please go here.
Here are a few close ups:

I used a piece of Dusty Attic chipboard, some vintage beads that I 
found at a flea market and a sprinkling of gold sequins .

Thanks for visiting!
Hugs, Lisa xoxox

'12' a new page for Scrapki Wyzwaniowo

Good morning dear readers....we have a brand new challenge for you this
month over at Scrapki Wyzwaniowo! This month it's all about creating something 
with a monochrome look.

'12' you can tell from my title my boy has hit 12 and although he still can be
sweet to his mama, we're going through some tough times and it's making me think a lot
about how he needs some stricter rules and some coaching on taking on
the responsibilities of a becoming a young man.
I've found myself a little bluesy over realizing that with him growing up,
it also means him pulling away from us as parents and that's been tricky for me too.
I bet there's a lot of moms out there than can relate :)
This photo was from our last vacation where we saw his 'moody' side,
but I love how my page turned out just the same :)

I hope you feel inspired (or challenged like I did) to use only one color!

To find out more about our challenge, please go here.

Here are a few details:

I used some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays on my background, some 7 Dots Studio
papers from the 'Yuletide' collection, lots of Prima flowers, a few Tim Holtz silver metal
 butterflies and some Dusty Attic chipboards painted white.

I also added some pieces of ripped up jeans, and it added some dark contrast 
to the whole page...I had an idea that I am going to make a junk journal about my
son using denim.....I've been wanting to make one for so long, I think I finally
found the inspiration to start one.

Thanks for looking!
Hugs, Lisa xo
