Wedding season is in full swing and I could not be happier about it- This last month has been a whirlwind and I am finally getting a chance to relax (quickly) and see photos from a few of the STUNNING weddings I’ve been a part of! Bridal hair is such a fun experience for me and I can’t wait to share more images from weddings booked for the months ahead!

L & I experimented with our second mixed media journal page and we had such a blast! This go around we got to play with Tim Holtz’ tissue paper as a background for both of our pieces, along with his distress stamps (of course!), white gesso, texture paste, watercolors and a mix of shading/sketching techniques. It’s been so much fun to challenge ourselves with this medium and see how we grow and learn as we go. I honestly can’t get enough!
Take a look at our final pages (below) and create something YOU-nique this week! 🙂
“Natures Beauty” – L
“Imagine.Create.Inspire” – A
“Love In A Cup” … My first ever Mixed Media page… created by using Tim Holtz distressed inks, clock stencil by Tim Holtz Collection, coffee bean stamps by Creative Images, heart die from Tim Holtz Alterations, and white cup is drawn/cut out by me (yikes. lol). It was a blast and scary at the same time, and I love creating along with the very talented Ms. Amanda!
Recently Loralee turned me onto the amazingly talented Vicky Papaioannou and her mixed-media art journals which are STUNNING (to say the least). After binge watching almost every journal video she has on YouTube …. I went out and bought an art journal for myself and Loralee so we could experiment this medium! One of our goals this year is to really push ourselves out of our comfort zone, and this is definitely out of that zone for us.
When I started all I knew for sure is I couldn’t wait to use texture paste with stencils and the Prima Bumble-Bee stamp I had just bought on amazon (lol) – We worked with a variety of products but the background was stamped with Tim Holtz distressed inks then a light honeycomb pattern stamp which I used my Prima watercolors to distress a bit as well. As the texture-pasted areas were drying I drew and cut out (my version) of a beehive, water-colored & stamped it, along with a tree for it to hang. Then distressed a piece of twine to hang the beehive from my tree & fastened it to the page. I stamped out my cute little bee’s and a few leaves and flowers from there – attached them with a mixture of modge-podge and glue dots, added the “BEE” stamping and wooden “happy” letters which I had stamped into black archival ink to match the theme. The final touch was a white gel-pen to accent certain areas of the page (beehive, wings, lettering) and I am really excited with how it turned out! I’ll be posting the finished photo/info for Loralee’s journal page as well, so stay tuned! 🙂
Mrs. Kent emailed me a few more photos from her wedding photographer and they are just too stunning not to share! Take a look for yourself-such a beautiful day, I am so glad I could be a small part of it 🙂
Easter will be here before we know it so the girls and I wanted to get a jump start on our prep with a cute card night! It was a success if I do say so myself, but take a “peep” and let us know what you think 🙂
