Live- Laugh- Love- Butterfly Canvas

I designed this canvas a while ago and never got a chance to post it on my blog.
I used a lot of stencils and resist techniques to design it.

The key is to create lots of texture in the background using stencils, paints and stamps.
Then drawing the shape you like.

I used the Acrylic paints and Ranger Dylusions paints all combined.

Book Papers
white gesso
Dylusion paints
Deco Art Inspiration stencil
Ranger black archival ink
Molotow white marker
Prima Finnabair soft matte gel
Faber-Castell stampers black pen
Red acrylic paint
Prima stamps
The Crafter's Workshop stencils
Tim Holtz script stamp

have a fantastic day!!

Enjoy the story- Blue Fern Studios February sketch challenge

Hi Everyone,
Below is the layout I designed with the Blue Fern Studios February sketch challenge.
I used the new Timeless collection as it has earthy tones that matched my rock climbing photo.

I rotated the layout because I wanted to give the composition a downward movement. I used the checkered bits chipboard to create this movement and embossed it in BFS Oatmeal embossing powder.

I framed the photo in one of the chipboard Techno squares. It was embossed in Blue Fern Studios Sage embossing powder.

I used a brick stencil and the PentArt iron paste to create the brick pattern in the background. Then I sprayed with textured spray and Empress Gold Color Bloom spray to create color and texture behind the photo.

Finally I used the word Enjoy from the "Enjoy the Journey" chipboard title and I also used one of the arrow words. They were each sprayed with a matching shimmery and textured spray.

Changes from Google

In the past week many bloggers have noticed a decline in their followers. Below is the reason why this is happening.
If you follow my blog through another search engine you will no longer see it in your feeds. If you want to continue to follow my blog then you must have a google account. 
Its unfortunate this is happening as I personally don't like these types of changes but there's not much we can do about it.
Please read below about the change and I encourage bloggers to post it as well.

Changes to Blogger's Google Friend Connect
Blogger has made some big changes to
how we follow blogs
so read on to see
if these new rules will affect you!

From Google: We announced the retirement of Google Friend Connect for all non-Blogger sites. We made an exception for Blogger to give readers an easy way to follow blogs using a variety of accounts. Yet over time, we’ve seen that most people sign into Friend Connect with a Google Account. So, in an effort to streamline, in the next few weeks we’ll be making some changes that will eventually require readers to have a Google Account to sign into Friend Connect and follow blogs.
As part of the plan starting the week of Jan.11th, 2016 we’ll remove the ability for people with Twitter, Yahoo, Orkut or other OpenId providers to sign in to Google Friend Connect and follow blogs. At the same time, we’ll remove non-Google Account profiles so you may see a decrease in your blog follower count.
We encourage you to tell affected readers (perhaps via a blog post), that if they use a non-Google account to follow your blog, they need to sign up for a Google Account, and re-follow your blog. With a Google Account, they’ll get blogs added to their Reading List, making it easier for them to see the latest posts and activity of the blogs they follow.
We know how important followers are to all bloggers, but we believe this change will improve the experience for both you and your readers.

Best Friends- Riddersholm Design

Here is my second creation for Riddersholm Design this month.

It is also my last creation as a Guest Designer. I want to thank Connie for the amazing opportunity to design with her fabulous designs.

I have another horse themed picture for my second layout this month. This time I used the "Compass" paper from the Newport collection. The background also looks like a woodgrain from a barn and so I thought it was perfect for another horse themed photo. 

 I used stencils and sprays in the background to create texture. Then I added lots of Prima flowers to embellish the layout along a Blue Fern Studios chipboard piece to frame the photo.

Papers: Riddersholm Design: Newport
Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios
Flowers; Prima
Title Sticker: Prima
Prima Color Bloom Spray: Empress Gold and Tea stain
LSG: Cajun Carnelian red spray
13 Arts Antique gold acrylic paint
Prima Finnabair Art Basics 3D Matte gel
Prima Basket weave stencil

Thank you so much for visiting the my blog

Have a wonderful day!!
