Actions rock!!!

Just a quick post.......I found this super cool blog that has FREE actions for Photo shop Elements..... CoffeeShop I have been playing around with some of them all day!!! This is the original picture of my hubs and meThis one is using her Lomo action. Jeff said it looked like an album cover. This one is using Retro Honey action. Vintage yumminess :)
These are all so easy and fun to use!!! The only thing that sucks about them is they take a lot of steps to install on my mac. Im off to watch Heroes and then make some pretty stuff!

still playin

Still working on clearing out my studio.....I cleaned out the entire closet! I'm Getting rid of a whole lot. Ive also started putting things all over the walls to try to cover up the yucky dark color. I really like my paint dipped tags, I might not use them as collage and just leave them up on the wall. Who knows? See the yellow spot? I peeled paint up off the floor and stuck it to the wall....random makes me happy!!! Seriously, do not paint your studio until you are 100% on the color :) This color makes me very not happy lol
I made this the other night in my crazy painting frenzy. First layer....I kinda like it....kinda dont....I think im gonna collage over it some and make it more mixed media??? Its just practice stuff on dollar store canvas boards so if i dont like it in the end i will start over :) I got the boards at dollar tree....if u have one of those look for them!!! Theyre 2 for a $1 :) I bought every one that was at the store, sadly only 4 packs..... Im gonna go play some more before work!!!

He totally inspired me to paint for hours....If your interested check out this video. Im not done with this page yet but i wanted to put up a pic to show the colors....I love bright colors. This page is about my total randomness, Lets face it people im all over the place. Have a super great day

I have been submitting to design teams for awhile and I found out that I made one yesterday. Im so excited!!! Im really looking forward to making some awesome stuff for them! Krop Paper Scissors is a store front in Grants Pass, Oregon and I really wanna go now......Especially since it was 98 degrees here yesterday yucky yucky. Big thanks to whoever selected the Design team and congrats to the other ladies that made it!
13 days till I leave for Inspired!!! Im super excited about that too. Jeff said i can get a video camera before i go.....Look out world I might video blog???? The only bad thing so far is that I just found out that American Airlines charges for your FIRST and second bag checked. What a rip off. Wont be flying with them again. I understand they need to make money, but I have to bring a lot of stuff with me everywhere I go and Im not really excited about paying an extra $80 for my bags. Ok enough with the complaining..... Heres an art journal page I did About appreciation. I struggle with communicating how much I appreciate what I have so i figured I would journal about it. Suzi Blu did a Vlog about appreciation and It was a fabulous prompt!! Yellows are apparently what I associate appreciation with..... Who knew? The letters are a little hard to see so ill tell you what the text says...... I appreciate my mom being sane finally, the color teal, pretty stuff, Jeff putting up with me, My art, and breakfast in the mornings! I appreciate a million other things but for that day these things came to mind. Today is my Grandpas birthday!!! Happy Birthday!!!!! I have a million things to do before I go to work so ill leave this post semi short! Have a wonderful day every one......Go make something about appreciation

Welcome to a color explosion :)

When I grow up I wanna be a painter!!! I finally manage to start making stuff again this past week :) I figured I should post some things up here so Jenn stops nagging me......First up a 4 x 4 mixed media canvas The background is this sand medium stuff that took FOREVER(about 3 days) to dry completely. The texture is super cool....It didnt photograph the best, sorry. Nothing really photographed well for me tonight so im just gonna post this. Mom and I went to a bunch of antique stores last week. I got a bunch off cool stuff!! This is wood stamp(I think?) Thats what Im gonna use it for. I got my toes done super cute too.....Makes me happy. Ok i super swear Ill rephotograph the other 10 million things laying all over my floor tomorrow as soon as I wake up!! Oh ya I have been cleaning out my studio AGAIN! I'm selling a ton of stuff........Less stuff makes more room for new stuff lol.

Like the new blog look???? I got it here.....House of 3 is making me fall in love with digi/hybrid which i thought would never happen. I bought this last night too......I really like how simple the products are to use and the price.....totally awesome!!! I have been dipping tags in leftover paint alot lately thanks to Art journaling 102........this one spoke to me....I used the punched circles on a page then felt the need to take a picture of it. The colors pop like crazy i love it :) I have some projects to share tomorrow. they didnt photograph very well so im gonna try again.
Oh ya.....I met with a sweet lady today to do a custom album for her......boy stuff lol Just my luck.....I wanna do one girl album for a change please please please :) anyway Im thankful none the less. I love making stuff for people!!! I also signed up for a craft fair at the end of may....Im a little nervous but im sure it will turn out ok(fingers crossed)

Fun stuff :)

Jeff won us tickets to the Disturbed concert last night.....It was so much fun!!!! We rocked out :) Nokia theater in grand prairie was a really good venue....The sound was amazing.This is an 8 1/2 x 11 first one. I really like this size, but it was defiantly a challenge for my 12 x 12 brain! Its part of my quarter life crisis series lol. The whole thing makes me happy. I bleached the photo it was fun so ill prob do it again. I put straight bleach on the photo with a brush then wiped it off....super easy! ok Im off to grocery shop and maybe make something :)
