To start off I thought I'd elaborate on a few things I mentioned in my WOYWW blog. The first of which is my recent purchase of acrylic paints. Prior to Saturday (this past weekend) I did not own any liquid mediums, most specifically paints. I had considered purchasing in the past since my sister and I have enjoyed painting wooden and ceramic figurines, but I never really committed. It wasn't until after I had joined Creative Jumpstart 2013 by Nathalie Kalbach that I realized all the ways that I could utilize acrylic paint in my cards, pages, and mini-books.
I picked up this 24 color set and 25 piece brush set from Hobby Lobby.
Yeah, I couldn't decide what colors to start with..
Poor Raider's Face got a big gash in it!
My other recent activity was the creation of a card for my paternal Grandpa. His birthday is Friday. Just to mix it up a bit, I actually pulled out my Page Map cards by Becky Fleck. I have both the Page Map books, 1&2, and they came with take along cards of all the projects.
Not too shabby, eh?
I think I'm going to try to squeeze in one more card, an Anniversary one, before I head to bed. But before I got, I wanted to give a shout out to my lil' sister, Stephi, who has just started her own blog. She's already following in my footsteps. *tear* You can find Stephi at Miniature Mishaps You will eventually see a bit more crafty bits, but at the moment she is trying to get her home together. She just moved to Louisiana with her hubby. If you could, please take a minute to stop by to say hello!
Thanks for hanging out with me! Have a great night!
