So I FINALLY got back to do some art journaling. It was fun. I forgot how much I missed it until I started playing with my journals.

Here are some in progress photos

And a close up of one of the pages

Added some more colour

And here are the finished pages

Had a lot of fun with these pages. Now to hope that I can get back to more crafting in the new year! I hope you all had as fun a year as I had.

So as I said before, I haven't spent a lot of time crafting this month. Since the month/year is just about over I figured I should get at least some stuff done. I FINALLY got around to doing my own paint pouring canvas.  I am pretty happy with how it came out!! I had a LOT of fun getting messy.

I didn't wear gloves so got super messy!!

This was the result when I finished the pour.

And it started changing right away.

And it changed even more just after an hour or two!

I think this might be my favourite part of the pour - one of my friends 
said it looked like a nebula.

Here are some photos of the canvas once it dried.

And here is the full canvas.

And then of course this is where I hung it up in the house.

All in all a very successful painting experiment. I am also hoping to get back to doing some art journaling, so stay tuned! Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

So I got some Christmas gifts done this weekend. The first I finished was for our pals Michelle and Duncan. I realized on one of our visits to their house that a lot of their Christmas decorations were snowmen so I made them a funky snowman! Here are some pictures.

I finished some other stuff too, so will post more pictures later. Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

As I said in my last post, I got my swaps done. This is what I made for my Secret Santa swap. My partner was all the way in Sweden! I am hoping she gets it in time for Christmas. We had to mag a loaded bag, along with a Christmas Card and a Christmas Ornament. I also had an extra stocking at the store so I embroidered that for her too! Here are some pics of what I sent her.

This was a fun swap. I am still waiting to see what I got from my partner! So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

So obviously my December 2017 has not been as creative as I have been in years past! I haven't had a lot of time to get down to my craft room. But I am trying to prep for my new adventure on the Canvas Corp Brand Design team! I had birthday money to spend, so thought I would get some goodies they sell to start me off. I am waiting on my first batch of goodies I ordered from them, but in the meantime check out what I got with my birthday present from my pal Michelle!

There was supposed to be a crop this weekend at the library, but we didn't have enough people so we cancelled. Instead I am gonna craft at home! I am caught up on my sways but I have some Xmas gifts  I want to finish! So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

So this is my December Design Team Project for Mixed Media Mojo Challenges.  The theme this month was Winter/Fun with the twist of Snowmen. I ended up being stupid busy and had so much going on that I really didn't quite stick to the theme.  I was asked to do something for a fundraiser that is coming up this weekend and the friend who asked wanted a Christmas theme. So I thought I would kill two birds with one stone. Here's hoping the winner of the raffle likes it!

I started out with a wooden frame that already had a cord for hanging it up. I liked the weathered look of the frame and thought it would work well for the project.

Then I added some fun Christmas paper that I had - I think this is one of the Bo Bunny
Christmas lines.

Then I added some "snow"

And I had to do some snowflakes too.

The final touches were adding some text and other ephemera.

This is a close up of the project, along with the finished project.

This is also going to be my last design team post or the Mixed Media Mojo blog. They have been great , and really supportive, but I am finding I just have the time for it - especially with getting on the Canvas Corp Brands Design team. It has been great exposure for me and I am sure helped me get onto this newest design team. 

So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!
