WATERCOLORS FOR PROJECT LIFE

I've always been envious of people who are talented in any form of art...especially paintings and drawings...so when michelle wooderson at mish mash blog blogged about watercolors, I wanted to try it too!!! I love all forms of flowers and when she painted flowers in her watercolor book, I wanted to try too!!! So this is my attempt at watercoloring...maybe I'll take a class someday...


 
I also used a couple to hero arts stamp which I used watercolors on...these I would use for my project life albums...
 
 
I am also hooked on these vellum sewn together to create a pocket that can be filled with anything.  I like mine with a simple word and lots of sequins and beads...since I don't know how to use my sewing machine, I hand stitched this simple running stitch which was quite relaxing to do... now that I have been making lots of cards for my project life album, I better get some of my pictures printed so I can finish March...

make it monday: no sew quilted cards

when I saw dawn's video about this no-sew quilted card, I know it was meant for me...I have a sewing machine that I don't know how to use but been meaning to learn for several years now...maybe this summer...in the meantime, I am happy with this no-sewing technique.  here's my project life card to start my march pictures. hope you like it...

baby doves update

just checked on the baby doves.  there's 2 in the nest that looks like they're growing bigger but unfortunately I found a dead baby one on the ground and an unhatched egg by the nest. hope the 2 survives...

scrapbook pages

I was looking thru my son's scrapbook album and found these pages I want to share with you...I used some PL cards for some of the layouts.  These are pages I have made from several months ago to years ago.  My son is now 12 years old!!! I wish (at times) those days of him as a baby would come back...but I'm glad he's growing up to be such a nice kid so far...

stamping with watercolor mediums challenge

PTI Make It Monday challenge: stamping with watercolor medium.  I used gelatos like Heather for my watercolor medium.  I can's believe it was so easy to stamp with water and gelatos.  It sure gave a cool watercolor effect!  Hope you like my 4x6 card that I will use for my project life album.
