Color combos on my mind

This pic has been sitting on my desk taunting me for a while. It was taken when I was the skinniest i have ever been. It was hard for me to equate the pic with the happy time it represents, cus all it reminded me of is how much weight i have gained since i got married. I have lost 15 lbs this year so im def back on track but this pic still haunts me :( SO instead of feeling bad constantly i just scrapped how it made me feel and put it in my album. Sorta turned the page on those thoughts LITERALLY!!! Color combo came from my shirt, and inspired me to make 2 more pages with the same colors. I think i might really like this combo lol. I didnt use alot of demntional embelishments on this page like i usually do because i really just wanted it to be focused on my thoughts and feelings and not how much stuff is on the page. I feel better just getting all of this off my chest!

Supply list:
Paper: Hand made black glitter paper from india, Creative imaginations green dot, bazzil card stock, hambly frame, and lined paper by sandy lion
Stickers: Luxe tag, Thickers, mini alphas

Create what makes u happy!!!!!!!

Back on track and spray painting away!!!!

Ok Im kinda back on track!!! Finally right :) My studio is 90% done THANK GOD! I can finally get some things finished...... Right now im taking a few online classes. First Im taking Stencilry from Mary Ann Moss . This is a wonderful class using spray paint and stencils. I believe she is having another class soon so check it out! The first picture shows my spray paint background I made using her techniques. I love how it turned out. The colors make me happy :) I have always liked stencils but now i LOVE THEM. And spray painting through lace makes me giddy!!!!! I can see my self using these techniques over and over in art journaling, scrapbooking and mini books.
This pic shows my completed art journal page. I used my stencil background as the base and added a picture of myself that I made using the techniques I learned in Dina Wakely's Art journaling 201 class. This class has been super amazing and its still available for you to take in an archive form! Sign up for it.........u wont regret it. Get ready for a ton of posts....i have been making a ton of stuff and im finally ready to show it :)

So life is slightly nuts

This is a picture of my 3rd bedroom that is currently housing all of my art stuff. I'm remodeling my studio and everything is complete chaos. I can't find anything :( this is the third time I've painted that room lol. Third times the charm right? I'm thinking when I'm done painting I'll be happier in there. The dark teal made me feel kinda anxious. So I picked this awesome peachy salmon color that I'm gonna accent with a bright teal!!!!! Here's a progress picture it looks orange cus of bad light oh well.

So this blogpost is from my new Iphone so it's really just a test post. Im praying this will help me post more! Have a great day everyone!
