Soul book start

Well I finally did it!!!  I started out my soul book!  I'm so happy about that because I have been wanting to do something to document this year and having a hard time to commit to something. This seems like something that I can totally do.  I have found the soul book via the youtube channel of Christie B and you can also find her blog here.

And I had been super lucky to have a great shop owner on Etsy give me one of her beautiful mandalas.  You can see the mandala that I used here.  It's from Coloring Craft Shack.

I have made a video to share with you all my mental process through this.  It was quite emotional and unexpected.  I didn't start of thinking that I would do this entire page... it just happened.


And here is the journaling spread that I have made.
As my son said this is totally not my typical style... but I really love how it turned out.  It's the start page of the book.  I used some acrylic paints, a stencil, a stamp from Eclectica and some stamping with a mat, stabilo pencil and some pitt pen.  The mandala was colored with some gel pens as well as coloring pencils.  And then I fussy cut it out.

I'm entering this spread in the following challenges:
  1. 613 Avenue Create - Anything goes and I didn't really do the spring but it is spring colors
  2. Dragonfly dreams challenges - Anything goes
  3. Corrosive challenges by janet - Anything goes
  4. My time to craft challenge - No design papers
  5. More mixed media challenge - Option yellow... didn't use much a bit but not much
That's it for me for today.  Hope you have a great Tuesday!!!

Spring Bud Hippo - Sandra Caldwell new release

Hello and happy Friday everyone!  What a week.  I have been working later at work... this means getting home later... preparing the meal later and obviously after eating well it's time for bed... almost anyway lol.  This means no crafty time for me and I miss it!!!

But because it's Friday it also means that there are new release over at Sandra Caldwell's etsy store.  And you can find this super cute Spring Bud Hippo there.

I made a video of the process of this.


And here is a closer look at my mixed media journaling out of the box.  The sentiment was found online and typed on a word document and then torn out.

I used a bunch of left over papers for this as well as a silicone mat for stamping.  The texture paste is from Heidi Swapp.  I colored the super cute hippo with my copics and then fussy cut her out.  I added a bit of sparkly washi at the bottom so that she is kind of doing a tight rope split lol.

I'm entering this mixed media piece in the following challenges:

  1. Crafting by designs - Anything goes
  2. Crafty sentiments - anything goes
  3. Inspiration destination challenge blog - Anything goes
  4. Crafty gals corner challenges - 3 plus layers - I put a lot of layers on this as you can see on the video :)
  5. Tuesday throwdown - Tropical critters.
That's it for me for today!  Hope you have a great rest of the day and that you will be able to craft :)

Lucy Loo "sniff" - The East Wind new release

Well there's a brand new release image by Unky over at the East Wind Etsy store. And because it's a Lucy Loo I just HAD to play with her.

However I'm very sad because I made a video to share with you all and my memory card bugged... and so the video didn't register properly :(

I was playing in one of my junk journal, the one that I made for my vacation last year but didn't really use.

I found a sentiment in a magazine that I thought would go well with her.

The background to the page is done in Panpastel.  I had done the entire book that way to have some sort of background.  I used some of my newest washis :)  love love love washi (you can see my haul's videos about that lol).  The image was colored with my copics and then I fussy cut her out.  I added some gel roll pen to her wings.  I also used a silicone mat to do some stamping.  And I got some paper scraps from a fellow youtuber and used some of it here.

I'm entering this journaling in the following challenges:

  1. Color inspiration monday - Anything goes hand colored
  2. Dragonfly dreams challenges - Anything goes
  3. We love 2 create - Anything goes mixed media
  4. Crafts and me inspiration - Things with wings
That's it for me for today!  Have a great day!!!

Easter Bunny

And I have one more... yup I said it one more!  3 posts in one day!!!  wooo hooo that's a lot for me these days.

This last one is for a little girl and I used one of the great images that I had for a long time.  I couldn't find it in the store so it might have been a freebie at one point because Bugaboo digi store has freebies every Friday.

I decided to  use this great sketch:

And here is my card.
I used some left over papers from my previous cards that were from American craft - Amy Tangerine.  I added some bling from Queen &co twinkle goosebumps.  The image was colored with my copics and then fussy cut out.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Stella-says-sketch-challenge-507 - Sketch
  2. Catch the bug blog - Anything goes

And here is the card that I created.  This one is for a little boy.  So I didn't want it to be too girly.
