DLP Week 44

Challenge:  Incorporate leaves (real or drawn/painted) onto your page in a creative way.

I wanted to have a lot of texture on my page by creating a tree.  I started by tearing masking tape into small pieces and placing it in my page in a rough tree pattern.

Once I had my tree defined I added modeling paste using a pallet knife.

I used a fairly thick coat with lots of lovely texture.  This was left to dry which took two days Then I added acrylic paint in sable brown to the tree adding thicker coats in some places and lighter in others to highlight all that great texture.

I then stamped lots of leaves at the base of the tree in pretty fall colors of orange, rust and yellow.

I cut a banner with my Big Shot and stamped a Fall saying and added some twine to make it look like it was hanging from one of the branches.

Hope you like my creation.  Thanks for stopping by.

DLP Flip Through Video

I've created a short video called a flip video where I flip through my DLP Planner to catch you up with my book .  I've never done this before so hope it works.

Thanks for stopping by.

Catching Up

What?  It's the end of October?  Really?

I just logged into my blog only to realize I haven't posted anything since May.  Life has been really busy since then.

My only son graduated with his Masters Degree from Marshall University.

My husband and I went on a cruise for my 60th birthday in July.  

We had a wonderful family get together where my 83 year old mother met her great granddaughter for the first time.

My sister-in-law and brother-in-law made a trip to our weekend cottage and we had a lovely visit.

I became the X-Ray tech for the Marshall University football team at home games.

Now it's time for trick or treat and I have a little Lydia bug to snuggle.

So now we are all caught up.  Thanks for visiting.
