A bright and cheerful card for all you Moms out there.

It doesn’t matter if put your feet up, take a walk, plant those flowers or hug those little ones…

What ever you need to do to embrace the day.  (fyi…I plan on doing all the above)

Happy Mother’s Day.

ADORNit’s…Life’s a Journey

Of all the goodies I received from ADORNit as part of being an “it girl”  this wood plaque

was the first project I wanted to tackle.

So…on a night when I had so many things I could/should have done,

I spent a relaxing evening just painting.

I haven’t done this in such a long time.  It was just what I needed.

I started with this plain life’s journey plaque from ADORNit.           (measures 11″ x 13″)

I used a small flexible nail file to run through the grooved channels to clean it up a bit.

I base coated the entire plaque with gray acrylic paint.

Having the gray paint, deep in the grooves of the plaque, works as the outline between colors

to make the colors stand out.

For me, having grooved channels made it so easy to paint and stay in the lines.

FYI…You might want to seal coat your project once your finished.

I’ll be honest… I’ve never been camping in my life. 

I’m not sure what drew me to this plaque so much.

My idea of roughing it is a bad hotel room.

Hmmm…Maybe if I had a cute little camper like this, I might even try it.

Life’s a Journey, Make the Most of it!

Sue’s ADORNit Unboxing Video

You may remember last month when I mentioned that I’d been given the opportunity

to be a ADORNit Brand Ambassador.

I patiently waited for my Happy Mail to arrive.  They said it’d be worth the wait.

They weren’t kidding.

For the next three months…

I will be sharing with you a variety of fun projects using their products.

I thought it might be fun to show in a video you what was in side.

I’m not the best at making video’s and this one gave me quite a few unexpected challenges.

But being fully determined, I finally got it done.  (Thanks in to my son Justin.)

To see all that ADORNit has to offer make sure to visit them at www.adornit.com.

Art Play Paintables

The other day while I was procrastinating…

I decided to get out my Art Play Paintables and do a little water coloring.

I love these fun sheets from Adorn It call Art Play Paintables.

So many wonderful images to fill in.

Great for watercolors, color pencils and markers.

You know… I think I need to take more time to just play.

Happy Friday!

ADORNit Blog Hop and Giveaway

Have you seen ADORNit’s Art Play Paintables Collection by Lindsay Ostrom?

These papers are a card makers dream.

All these wonderful images without having to buy a ton of stamps.

The papers are perfect for coloring with color pencils, markers or painting

with water colors or inks.

I like to water color with my inks and markers and a waterbrush.

If my inks have a flexible lid, I squeeze color into the lid and use that as my palette.

If not I dab the ink onto a non-porous surface and paint away.

(These cards were created for and sponsored by Adorn It.)
