"You are my happiness" Burlap Panel Tutorial

Hello again!
Little by little things are falling into place, and today I finally get to share with you a project I created for Lindy's Stamp Gang, and the Winter CHA 2014 show. I enjoyed changing up a bit the editing style of the video, and I'd love to hear your feedback…I'm trying out voice over for the first time, and even though it was quite hard to get a little bit of peace and quiet over  here to record it (and to get the volume of my voice working ok---still needs more work I think), it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. It's a start to finish tutorial, where I mainly used the Drink Me Silly Starburst Spray Set from Lindy's.
The set has a very nice selection of colors that include: My Mojito Green, A Bit o'Bubbly, Blue Hawaiian BlueFuzzy Navel Peach and Cosmopolitan Pink. It is FANTASTIC for those of you who love making shabby chic projects, as the tones are soft and beautiful. I also used my favorite Magic Moon Pearls embossing powder from Lindy's. I just LOVE the pearlescent look it gives anything you use it on! I'm sure you must know that already if you've been following me for a while, ha!

Here's a start to finish tutorial on this project which I hope you enjoy, and below that, some pictures of the finished project.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and hanging in there in the mist of my few and far in between posts. hoping to keep inspiring you as I get a rhythm going here hopedully really soon. Take care!

It's February!!!! Getting back to normalcy...

Hi everyone,
I'm back today! It's been quite a while since I've been able to come sit down, and write a little. As you might have imagined, and seen (if you follow me on Instagram), I've been quite busy with the move to my new house, and everything that comes along with that. I still---believe it out not---- have a lot of "settling"to do, because not only it was a big move, but also, right when I moved, I injured myself and was out of commission for about three weeks, or maybe a bit more than that.  I could not move too much or do much of anything for quite some time (the agony!). 
I'm happy to say that I'm all healed up, and little by little everything seems to be starting to feel normal again. More on all of that, on a later post.
Today I'm sharing with you my inspiration piece for this month's Lindy's Stamp Gang Color Challenge.
Here is February's Color Palette: 
And here's what I made:
I used Starburst Stains in the colors Shabby Turbine Teal, and Steampunk Sepia, as well as a Flat Fabio in the color Hibiscus Rose. Take a look HERE to see what all the other designers created for your inspiration, and don't forget to join in the fun! You have the whole month of February to give this color challenge a try.
Also, to make it easier for you, Lindy's Stamp Gang has put out a Limited Edition Set of colors, just in case you feel, you need a little help picking out what colors to use for the challenge. You can pick up any of the limited sets available for this month only HEREHERE and HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I have SO MUCH more to share with you, but that will have to wait until next time.
Take care!
