So here she is...
I started the project out by sketching what scene I wanted with a pencil (note to self, make sure next time it is not a water color pencil) I had my sweet friend Courtney Walsh painting with me... that is always a plus. After I sketched out my simple scene, I started to add the background textures (you can see them here, stars and watercolor paper by Art-C). Using the ripped up pieces of water color paper with some mod modge... I created a fun textured background that I was able to paint on.
This sun was created with Art-C's air drying modeling clay. It was fun and easy to paint from there.
Her little crown was some left over clay that I had stamped into.
Her glorious locks are a combo of glitter, paint, pastel, Sakura pens... repeat.repeat.repeat... till I found the right combo.
Her sweet little heart was created with parts from one of the Art-C ATC kits.
And this fun rolling hills of grass, made with wire, beads and one of the ephemera kits. (PS she also likes to paint the roses red!)
Her dress is layers of Art-C products blended together with fabrics from my stash. The flowers and embellishments are from one of the ATC and Ephemera packs.
So here she is in all her glory... I am so happy with the way she came out.. she looks so happy... matter of fact, I know she is happy :)
So she is off to CHA... if you are attending... make sure to stop by their booth (#2338) and say hello! My sweet friend Sally Lynn MacDonald will be teaching some classes as well as demonstration and doing make and takes in their booth.
Thanks for peeking!

This year since I now work for an adhesive company... I have been able to open up other opportunities with various companies... and being that I love paint... I have been having some fun with some Clearsnap products... Here are some projects that will be in their booth this CHA.
Here are some projects featuring their new Jumbo Spritz colors.
I took some Bazzill glazed cardstock and saturated it in Black Velvet Spritz, it created this beautiful two toned look, the spritz actually stuck nicely to the glaze on the paper.
And here are some pictures of the depth of texture that I created for the background. I love adding so much texture to pages, even simple cards can have a fun background.
And this one is possibly my favorite... I have to say, I haven't been asked to create a tag before, so I figured if I am going to do a tag... might as well have some fun with it!
This tag is used to blend colors together. I also added some vintage ephemera and some of the Clearsnap foils for something shiny!
this is a 6x6 layout using their Log Cabin, Gold Glow and Vanilla Shimmer Jumbo Spritz. I used some punchinella as a mask and then blended the colors together with water.
So this is the start of what is to come... I have some fun ART-C, and Prima stuff to share too... and of course some SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L samples too.
thanks for looking~

True Random Number Generator : 15

HI Liz, I am EXCITED to begin this journey!!!!!! It's about time I sat and re-evaluated my life and discover how i can improve to my maximum potential.
I would LOVE to nominate my best girlfriend i've known since birth (34 yrs!!) for this prize. This last year she has had a world of problems, house flooding and them spending the last 7 months living among boxes and all their stuff in one area without a living room table to eat at. As well, God graciously has blessed her with a fantastic husband this second time around, but I think this course could really benefit her because of all the negative treatment she was subjected to with the first one that tore her down emotionally. I would love to see her rise, discover herself and be able to have some awesome stuff happen to her this year.

It was so wonderful to see all of your hearts pour out into these posts. It makes me smile to know that most of you (those whom I have grown to know through this industry or on my blog) have such a giving heart... it is a beautiful thing!
So Leica, if you could email me Primadonnaliz(at)yahoo(dot)com I will go ahead and let the girls over there at Brave Girls get your friend all ready and set!
Thank you all again, and I am sure that your friends will be thanking you too...for all of the wonderful things that you had said about them!

Stopping and evaluating your direction is almost never an option even though it is a life necessity. This makes me wonder how ofter our own priorities are mixed up when we don't even have the time to remember what is important anymore.
So from camp, this is what I learned. It wasn't a specific lesson that was taught, words that were said or even advice that Melody or any of the other girls gave. It just simply was something that rested on my heart that while I was there, in one of the most secure environments I had ever been in that I was able to allow myself the time to remember what it is that I want for myself and for my family. Even my husband could see this in me after I returned.
This important lesson has stuck with me since May, and I have to say it has re-affirmed me day after day that the life that both my husband and I first decided that we wanted back in 2001 when we first were married... it is still a pretty good life, and well... we need to get back to that simple, love and family filled life.
That was my lesson, it may not be the same for everyone... but I hope that it is just as important for those who attend than it was for myself.
As a thank you to Brave Girls and to you all for following not only my journey but also that of my families... We (My husband and I) would love to giveaway one tuition to Soul Restoration which is a very similar curriculum than that from Brave Girl Camp. This is such an amazing experience so much that even my husband would agree!
Here is what you have to do. We want you to nominate someone that you think would benefit from this online art class. Just leave a comment here of someone that YOU think could really benefit from this. If you really want to attend this online course than have someone nominate YOU. The only entries will be those names of people that are written in a comment on this thread of the blog. When you are considering someone to nominate, remember that they don't have to be artsy, but you do want to make sure that it is something that they would enjoy and that they could benefit from. So that is it... simple. Just write someones name in a comment, or have someone nominate you in a comment for a chance to win!
I will pick a random winner on Wednesday so that you have some time to think about who to nominate, as well as have some people help nominate you too. The class starts tomorrow, but you will be able to pick up starting Wednesday.
So get out there, call a few friends have them nominate you or you can nominate them! The more times your name is nominated the better! I will post both the winning nominator and the nominee here on Wednesday so that you know who to thank for nominating you. please make sure also that they post where you are from ( example, I would like to nominate Liz Hicks from Ft. Collins, Co.) that way we can have an easier way of figuring out who the winner is.
The Brave Girls online community is up too, so if you would like to check out what is starting to happen over there, check it out here! This is a great place to meet other crafters that are preparing for soul restoration too.
If you have any questions feel free to email me at primadonnaliz(at)yahoo(dot)com
Thank you and good luck!
~Liz (and James too!)
