Hello and happy Wednesday! Things are pretty hectic around here, since I am swamped with work, but I couldn’t resist making a page using a couple products from the weekly 50% sale at The Lilypad!

April Mixed Media Monthly at The Lilypad

It’s time for the newest Mixed Media Monthly collection from The Lilypad – and it’s a really good one! I made 4 pages all in one sitting, because there were just so many good papers in the kit that I wanted to use!

The first page had to be about the crazy weather we are having this year.

Next, I made a motivational page inspired by the background paper with the words “time to begin again”.

What I love with the M3 collection is that you can add as little or as much as you want, and you can’t go wrong! Here I added very little – one piece of word art, a photo, and my journaling. That background paper is just so pretty!

And to finish, one more page about this crazy, crazy weather.

Have a lovely weekend!

I’ve also been having a blast in Tangie Baxter’s Mixed-Media for Scaredy Cats class!! Here’s my first mixed media page:

And here’s what the background looked like before I went to town adding pieces of paper, washi tape, and lettering. 🙂

And here’s my second page – made using a kit that is 50% off today too.

Here are the details:



This is what the watercolor background looked like before I added all the collage pieces:

I find this process so very freeing! I don’t have to make sure each piece is a masterpiece – I just enjoy the creative process, and then move on to the next page. I love being able to print out my digital supplies for this, because I can reprint them and there’s no need to hoard the supplies!

Weekly Sale, and New Class!

Hello!  I am so excited because the new class by Tangie Baxter on mixed media started yesterday, and tonight I am going to be digging into the first few lessons! And the class is on sale for only $10 so it’s a fabulous deal!

I also have 2 pages to share made with some products that are 50% off in the weekly sale at The Lilypad.

I hope to see you in class!
