Live in Color!

live in Color Layout

I love COLOR! The brighter the better or the more the merrier!!! When we moved into our new home here in Medicine Hat I really didn't know what to think about the brown color of the walls.

I now adore them because I treat them as my neutral back ground and then I add pops of bright color throughout my house like spring greens, pinks, turquoise & reds! It is always fresh and exciting! That is how I like to craft and paint, with neutral backgrounds and bits of accenting colors!

This layout I designed using some of my paper line.  I added some embroidery floss, some cute little buttons from BoBunny, and some Glimmer Glam from Tattered Angels.

I had fun adding some extra color with some acrylic paint.

Then I did one of my favourite things….. doodling. I LOVE taking out a good marker…like writers from ZIG Memory System, and just having fun! It really can be relaxing!live in Color Layout 4

I like the look of paint on in Color Layout 3

When stitching through paper, it can save you so much time if you make your holes in the paper first.

Well, this week-end I am off to Calgary and I really am excited about this! I get to help out at the CROP 4 KIDS event that is going on! Some of Canada’s most talented instructors will also be at this event including Leica Forrest, Virginia Wong, Kimberly Collis, Christy Riopel, and Sonja McLean! It is going to be a blast!
