Week 3 at LET'S GET SKETCHY!

Hello! I absolutely loved this sketch-it was easy and just flowed!  This was a heartwarming day-Christmas-with my 95 year old Mother-in-law who lives now is assisted living.  I bought Christmas jammies for my husband , his sister, myself and my MIL.  We ate dinner with her at the facility-a new tradition born!

January 13th at CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS!

Hello Friends! I am joining you here at -> CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS with a page I don't do enough of-ME & my dear husband, George.  Not only was it a heartwarming day but a pretty good picture too!  My Mother in law is in assisted living and on Christmas Day the calendar said "PAJAMA DAY".  I ordered Christmas jammies for 4 of us and we had dinner with my mother in law-everyone got a real kick out of us-most importantly -she was happy!

Here is the page:
 
The Background paper was mildly distressed, I sanded it for a more distressed look.
On the hat, I used a snow pen for dimension and then added the fuzzy hat material.
 
From CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS STORE:
adore, family word set, which I painted white
  Smile for the Camera, which I left natural:

Let's start 2017 at THE MEMORY NEST!

Hello! and Happy 2017-I have to get used to the 7 now! LOL!  Well, it's time for the 1st of 2 sketches at -> (click & go right there!) THE MEMORY NEST!  I ended up doing somewhat of a negative space page which I NEVER do but LOVE whenever I see it!  When I saw the sketch I just knew (somewhere in my paper stash) that I had paper that looked just like the background-amazing that I actually found it!  So, if you have some free time-come and join us!

Creative Embellishments + ATCs=FUN!

Hello, this is Marci  and HAPPY 2017!!!  I am SUPER excited as this is my FIRST individual posting as a DESIGN TEAM MEMBER for -> CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  I have loved their products so it is my pleasure to be part of this wonderful team!  (Be sure to check the monthly challenge for a chance to win $50 GC to the store!)

Today I am bringing you a set of ATCs (Artist Trading Cards).  I once said
 "NO WAY!" and here I am addicted for oh about 5 years now!  I love that
Creative Embellishments has numerous products that work perfectly with these small
 (2 1/2" x 3 1/2") cards.  I trade these cards with people from all over the world!
 

I used the DREAM WORD SET as well as the HAPPY WORD SET.  I used a Silver Metallic Gelato
(and 1 in purple Gelato)  on the words and then sprayed them with Glitter Dust:
 


 I also used the BUTTERFLY FLAIR BUTTONS :
 



I appreciate you stopping by!
