Creative Art Journal Week #41


This week's prompt magic carpet...
if you had a magic carpet RIGHT NOW...where would you ask it to go.

If I could ask my magic carpet to take me anywhere right now, I would return to St. Luce, Martinique and perhaps never return......C'est le paradis!
For this card I cut the image of an elephant off some printed paper and added dimensions to him and the carpet with puff and glitter pens, beads and wire. I attached the fibre to the edge of the card to give semblance of a carpet and used rub on words.

This week's challenge is not anymore
what is not anymore in your life, how are you not anymore, how is it not anymore?!!!

I am not the same me anymore and that's just fine. I've come to adjust from my hectic life of "used to be" to the simpler new normal life that I am now living and I wouldn't change it for anything!

For this card I used some cheap stickers as a mask and then inked over them for the letters. I then added some torn and inked printed paper,a rub on, some chipboard and other embelishments and inked and mod podged the whole card.

I miss my dad.


Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there. Remember to hug your kids and tell them that you love them. We used to spend our Father's Day having the most amazing water fights ever. It was so much fun and the memories will last forever.
Miss you Magilla!

Dish Cloth Knit Along


Come and join me on a monthly dish cloth knit along. For the month of June I made the Dragonfly dishcloth that I found at Dishcloth Corner.
There are so many different ones posted there and because I only use handmade dishcloths I thought it would be fun to make one a month.
**Just a note, if you are making them be sure to use cotton worsted weight yarn only as acrylic is not suitable for these projects. Have fun and please send me a link to your creations!!!

Creative Art Journal Week #39


This week's challenge is someone spesh! (special that is)
Can I just say that I am so blessed to be surrounded with such loving and caring family and friends but if have to choose someone really special it is my daughter in law.
She is so unselfish and kind in such a quiet,unassuming way. I truly love her and I am so happy to call her my friend.
For this card I stamped the background and then made a paper flower. I added some chipboard pieces and torn black paper and I inked the whole think in black chalk ink.

Creative Art Journal Challenge Week #38


The topic for this week is "I wonder..."
Can't wait t o see what you will come up with!
For me as I pondered on this prompt, I found that I rarely wonder as I have spent so much of my time trying to live in the moment.....for the moment is all that we have.
For this card I used felt embelishments on printed paper and added stickles to them.
