A Family Day

Yesterday my husband, my girls and I spent the day at a local plantation.

We hiked the area and took in the sights.

Walked through the old homes and buildings on the property and just enjoyed being together.

this is an old store building that was brought on to the site and on the inside it still has all of the shelving that is original to the store.

I love history and learning about new places. This was a great way for us to spend the day together and be outside and enjoy the time spent with each other.

DIY Paint Sample Card #tutorial

I am always finding that I am re buying the same paint colors each time they are on sale, because I didn't remember the colors that I have on hand. So after one such shopping trip on Saturday I can home and created a one sheet folded book out of mixed media paper and made my one paint sample card.

I started out by drawing a grid on each little page and then sorted my paints by brand. This way I can have one spread per brand and know which color goes with what quickly.

I painted one of the blocks for each color and then moved on to the next brand.

After each section had dried I went back with a ballpoint pen and wrote the name of each color. I now have a small reference tool too keep in my purse so when I go paint shopping again I will know what colors I have and the ones that I need. This is also a great way to see how each color does with coverage. My next project is completing the same chart on black paper.

A Weekend Recap

On Saturday my and my daughter spent the day at the AmericasMart in Atlanta. We had a blast and were able to meet a lot of great people.

Here is Ted Allen from Food Network's Chopped. We were able to be in the audience while they filmed Hume doing a cook demo. Some yummy things were cooked from his new cookbook.

Here is Anastasia taking a ride in the Bridgewater Candle Company VW Bug. It was covered in art by Caroline Siemas from Multiple Blessings.

We went back to the demonstration kitchen when Atlanta's own Fox Brothers from Fox Brothers BBQ were showing how to cook the perfect ribs. We enjoyed sampled of these while we watched and they were delish.

We also visited lots of beautiful showrooms. Over all we had a great day. I loved having a day for just me and Anastasia.

Cardstock and a Silhouette

This is my stash of 8.5 x 11 Cardstock and I have been having fun making the decorations for the Vacation Bible School at our church. It will be July 22-25 and our theme this year is Oceans of Fun.

I have been cutting out a lot of sea creatures and now I'm working on sea urchin and I feel like I'm in who ville.

After I cut them out, my daughter glues them together for me then I add doodles with a black gel pen. I add highlights with a white gel pen also. These have been a really fun project and I will be sharing more of the finished projects with you on Friday.

Icad 2013 update

 

This card was krinkled up before I started design on it then I drew triangles in one color at a time all over it with prismacolor markers. I then outlined it with a black pen and added doodles with a white gel pen.

For This card I only used one pen. A Bic 4 color and I used the purple ink.

 

For this card I used all the colors in my Bic 4color pen.
