Simon Says Emboss It

This shimmery beauty is for the Simon Says Monday Challenge.
Embossing is the task for this week.
There’s white embossing on the watercolor base, which I mostly covered up.
And then I stencil embossed some squares, too.
The chippie is heat embossed with three different shimmery colors of Lindy’s Stamp Gang powders.



And here are a couple of close-ups.





Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!

I'm still digging the green/brown/yellow combo from this 7 Dots collection.
I also like how the embossed feather chippie turned out ;)


Here's a close-up.


And here's the moodboard. I was inspired by the quote.
I want my kids to be moved by the littlest details that surround them every day.

Bliss - W&P August

My son was out with friends the day before school started.
(School started for him August 13!)
I asked him to send me a photo/selfie when he was out.
This is the photo he sent me.
And the end of that drink is what I think the Sunday of Summer must have felt like for him.

This is my entry for the August Words & Paintery Challenge.


and close-ups...




and the color palette / theme...

bling bling - W&P March

My brother took me to my very first concert. It was Bruce Springsteen and I was just twelve years old. I am happy to enter the March Words & Paintery Challenge with this LO of my son Johan as a younger boy. The inspiration comes from the colors for the month and Bruce’s song, Badlands. I went from the line that reads “poor man wanna be rich,” and I used this photo of Johan wearing his cousin’s hat with the bling on it. I know it made Johan feel like a king!
 
 
...and a close-up...

The Dusty Attic - March

I’m entering the Dusty Attic Challenge this month with this LO. I’ve used a lovely Long Stem Flower DA chip that’s been watercolored. From the mood board I used the splashes as well as the pinks and purples. The title is from a Bruno Mars song because this LO is of my niece, Lenora, who likes him a LOT. I also made this LO of her because she’s no longer the little girl in the photo. She’s now a grown and hopeful college girl and I admire her so much for how beautiful she is inside and out. She’s a strong woman with her feet firmly planted on the ground and a vibrant and humble soul who has overcome so much to earn everything she has. She takes nothing for granted and her faith and perseverance are the reason I look up to her.
