Holy snow days batman! Pezza is finally back in school today. I love her to pieces and we have had fun but I am glad to get back to my regular routine. I do not get much of anything useful done while she is at home. In fact it is the opposite of useful :P Yesterday we had a little Minecraft Bingo party with some of her (and my) closest friends:
The kids had lots of fun! We had little Minecraft figures for prizes.
I HAVE managed to get a bit of time in my studio. The Mixability Mixed Media challenge last Friday was Static Electricity. Not only did I decide to participate in the challenge and do a journal page I thought I would do a video for it too! So if you are interested, it will appear in 2 parts at the end of this post. I hope to do more so if you want to see them be sure and subscribe to my new youtube channel (my old one is wonderful BUT I have been locked out of it and still can't get access - BOO!)
"Let go of blaming anyone for anything, BE ACCOUNTABLE for your own life."
I think that quote is a great reminder. It is something I have worked hard to keep in mind all of my adult life. It was critically important to my recovery from drugs & alcohol.
This project uses a new product from ColourArte (my favorite mixed media line) called Radiant Gels. You can see in the picture above the gorgeous shimmering textural look when I used the Radiant Gels with a stencil. The gels are smooth and thick and buttery and the color and shimmer is amazing! You can get them in 12 sumptuous colors!
I was inspired by the following challenges:
- Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - Something New for the New Year
- Splitcoast Stampers - Static Electricity
Let me know what you think of the videos. I am working on trying to improve my lighting somehow....
