Mixed Up Media Chix Birthday Blog Hop!


Today I'm participating in the Mixed Up Media Chix Birthday Blog Hop!

If you want to participate, start over on Ria's Blog


I love participating in these, because it always challenges me to go back to the canvas.

Unfortunately, my canvas isn't completely done, but hey, I was totally having so much fun.  And I want to show it to you anyway!

I like what I've done so far on this…what do you think?



All the folks participating have some really fun projects to share, don't you think?

I'm LAST….wasn't it fun?  Yay…so as long as you commented on everyone's post, you just might WIN a little prize!


Oh, and last, I wanted to show you where some of my "mixed media" stuff is sitting…



Have a great 2nd day of Spring. 
Cheers!

Your canvas is looking wonderful! I want to see it when it's done! And, I see you have a mixed media dog, too! How fun! (They have to be in the middle of it, don't they?) my Goldenseal would be there, too -- if they fit.

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. I

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
