Adventures In Mixed Media Vol. 2

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! 🙂

New on Etsy!

I have started and can not stop creating these little floral goodies! After months of extreme inventory lag I am excited to share the two newest additions to the ACB shop. They’re made to order, so each has its own unique quality. Take a minute to check them out, I think you’ll like what you see!1 2


Now back to creating! hehe


Headband Heaven!

It’s Friday! And if that isn’t enough to put you in a good mood check out Miss Emilee in her Floral & Lace Headband. I am obsessed with this picture and seeing my headbands come to life on these little cuties, wouldn’t you agree?

Have a great weekend & get ready for some awesome updates next week! ;]
