Happy Saturday...well, sort of! This is my last weekend before going back to school on Monday! Summer flew right by, but I did get some yard work and paper crafting projects completed. I could use another couple weeks to finish decluttering, but I know the parents are probably ready to send their children back to start learning again.
This past Thursday I asked my daughter if she felt like going for a car ride since she had been in bed for a few days with her mouth being sore and being dizzy from the meds (She had all four wisdom teeth removed and some of the gums were trimmed back.). I thought some fresh air might help with recovery. She agreed and we went to My Favorite Things in Eustis, FL. I had no idea there was a real shop open for business less than an hour away.
It was like being in a candy store! So many choices! I did purchase a few items and plan on going back for one of the classes on Saturdays.
Here is what I created with a few of my new goodies!
First, I used Ranger Distress inks to create the water color backgrounds.
Then I cut the scribble roses, the overlays, and the leaves with my Cuttlebug.
Lastly, I cut the stitched circle and stamped it with my new Encouraging Words stamp. Matching sequins were carefully adhered.
I am very pleased with the outcome. I had watched a few videos on watercolor techniques earlier in the week and was able to use them. Can't wait to use some more watercolors and the other goodies I bought at the MFT boutique.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
