August Featured Designers

How is everyone doing?

This month we will be featuring our friends' work. Unfortunately, there will be no guests designers this month. I am afraid that there are things that's going on in my life right now and I'm stretched too thin to do the things I normally do.

But today is not about me and my problems. Today I am thankful to our 2 friends..

Nadia and Lizzy for sharing their projects with us...

Let's check out Nadia's work first:

Here is Lizzy's project using the tag and items from kit she won on our blog hop.

Here is my take on the challenge: 

In this art journal, I used Scrapmatts chipboard wings, painted in gesso, mod podged and added Matisse dry medium Mica  flakes.

I used Dylusion stamps and Ink to get the effect. I used watercolor, markers, and lumiere paint for the purple shirt.

On this page. I mod podged antique paper, painted gesso on some parts of it. I used stencil ad lumber paint for the purple effect. 

Butterflies were from Renea's etsy shop.

Here is what the journal looks like. I'm still working on it. 

I almost forgot to include my 5 y.o. daughter's art. Alyssa told me that she is joining the challenge too..Well I told her that she can make one for the challenge, just like I did..

Here is her project for Cathy's Wing Challenge

By the way...
