Getting Messy

Hello
How's your weekend been?
We've had snow and it's very cold but we braved the weather last night and went off to the golf club where they were doing an 
A La Carte evening ... 
It was delicious and I was so full!
You should have seen the sweet trolly! Even though I was full I just had to have something ... a delicious cream meringue with strawberries ... but I did pass on the cheese and biscuits ...

Thursday evening with my group was such fun ... they all loved making their cards and Easter bags and I was so tired when I got home but one happy bunny!

So today I have been getting messy ... After seeing a tutorial Here I thought I'd try my hand at mixed media ... Ok ... please be kind ... this is my first attempt at one of these and I have debated about sharing ... here goes


I know it's far from perfect but hey I had fun


I used just about everything I could find ... and maybe I went too far ... Is it too busy?

The next one will be better ... I hope!

Have a lovely day/evening

Till soon

Why would you even think about hesitating to share this. It's fantastic! If you're willing to be messy you can't help but have fun. Hope you'll share some more projects. Hugs!

She looks perfect to me! I always admire your talent for color combinations, patterns, and lay out of your elements. You are so good with both mixed media AND paper play. The leaves and butterfly are also amazing!

Barbara said...

I so agree with all that has been said before: a wonderful card and I can't believe you hesitated about sharing! The color combo is inspiring!

Heather Jensen said...

You did a FABULOUS job with the mixed media lady. I don't know why you wouldn't want to share her. I have the book of the lady who started this girl and have yet to make one. :)
