Happy Easter

My heart is full of blessings today with the love of family, friends and a beautiful Easter breakfast at Church and a Service.
My heart is also sad since our oldest daughter is away from home in college and it was our first ever Easter apart from her. She was missed so much but we know she was blessed at her Church with her college friends.

hugs to all,
Happy Easter

Relaxing Play

My friend and I like to relax on a Sunday afternoon playing, creating and mixing it up in her studio. With having so much fibro pain lately I wasn't  sure if I would even be able to play today. But I was feeling pretty good so I knew that I need to keep my creating easy and relaxing so I turned to a little mixed media. Still needs a little touches but I think it turned out pretty good. I am so ready for spring and decided to draw a few flowers and of course a little bumble bee was stopping to smell the beauty.
Water coloring with Twinkling H 2 O's and water color pencils, adding some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Graphite for shading. Along with some stamping to help add texture. I am not totally done with this art piece yet but it's pretty to me.
I will say it was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. I encourage you to look around your stash and see what you have created with in a long time and dive in.
Happy Crafting, Peggy Lee

Glimmer Mist Dipping

Dipping with glimmer mist.
Die cut your flowers out of muslin.
Spray your color of glimmer mist onto a craft mat.
Take your muslin flower and dig and drag it through the puddle of glimmer mist.
Set aside to dry while you dip all your flowers.
You can use a heat tool to speed up the drying time.
Add a little pearls or bling to the centers of the muslin flower.
I use fabric tac or 3-n-1 glue.
Add to your projects and your done you've created your own embellishments.
Don't be afraid to try different mediums of texture for creating flowers.
Added little touches make a big wow!

Happy Crafting, Peggy Lee

March 1st-Missed it already!!!

Well shoot I missed March 1st already....with it being National Crafting Month I so wanted to do a blog post everyday in March and I already
I had good intentions see yesterday I spent the morning at the doctors for my fibro pain. Then my daughter Emilee and I took off for a day of shopping for a dress for winter carnival for her school next week. Sad thing we didn't find anything living up here in the Mountains we don't have enough good stores, needless to say we are still looking and most likely will have to make the drive down south a few hours. Oh that might mean a stop at a real craft store...whoop score!!!
So after picking up my hubby from work, then eating supper and shopping at the food store we got home late and I was dog tired.
I am enjoying a lazy Saturday morning just catching up in blog land, face book, emails while my dirty dishes are screaming at me to wash a few I keep saying to myself.
Even though we don't have alot of great stores up here-but who could replace this...
Just Beautiful
Now I don't have a craft for March 1st since from my busy day.
I have the second best-inspiration! NATURE
Look at the second photo above, this inspired me to paint, draw and create a mixed media canvas with branches and fake snow.
All this to say

Happy crafting, Peggy Lee
