Marie Antoinette Mixed Media Painting!

This is my most recent painting.  It is very layered and detailed, and even has a mini-photo album of Versailles (Where Marie Antoinette lived) that I picked up at a flea market in France...I am definitely enamored of, and very proud of, this painting!

Samples for Classes I Teach at Michaels

 I have no idea how to fix this and make it have the correct orientation, any helpful hints in that area would be greatly appreciated!!!  It was upright on my computer, and so I don't know how to turn it in blogger...anyway, sorry that it's sideways!!!

This one is sideways too, sorry about that!!!

I often get really attached to layouts and say they are my current fave, but this one really is!  I love it so much, it is soooooooo me and my soul. I love love love how it turned out!!!  I still have to do the journaling on it.  I used products from 10 different manufacturers!!!  I really love to mix it up, to make a really unique style...sigh...I love this layout!

I heart you! A sketch challenge with Gossamer Blue

I made this layout for the March sketch challenge with the Gossamer Blue kit club, which I have recently joined.  This layout uses a lot of elements from the March kit.  It was a really fun layout to do.

I Love You Sweet William-Sketch 232 Challenge

I made this layout for a sketch challenge I found on Pamela's World of Scrap, the link is: if you would like to play along too!!!  This layout is super plain for me, but somehow I really like it, it seems very classic or something.  Not my usual overdone shabby chic style!

Gossamer Blue Challenge with Elle's Studio

This is my scraplifted version of a layout created by a member of the Elle's Studio design team, mlepitts, found at: I scraplifted it for a challenge for the Gossamer Blue Kit Club.  I decided to go with them for a kit club because I think their style is pretty awesome!!!  This is definitely not my normal scrapbooking style, but it was a fun stretch for me!
