Lots of Creating!! {photos}

Live a Joyful Life


This month I have been so busy CREATING! 
I thought it would be fun to share some of my creations with you.

Have you heard about the Documented Life Project?? It has become my VERY FAVORITE thing to work on!!


My pages from a few weeks ago


It's part planner, part art journal.

My pages from last week...not quite finished

5 amazing and very different artists have combined their talents to bring us this very addicting project!!

Click here to meet each one and join in the fun.

This project has inspired me so much that last week I created a notebook just for my spiritual thoughts, favorite scriptures and prayers.



And speaking of inspiration...Stephanie Ackerman has been motivating me to not only create, but to study my scriptures and document my faith. So between the two...this book was meant to be:)


Another project I've had a blast with this summer is Daisy Yellow's Index Card a Day.




Since June 1st I have been painting, collaging and doodling on 4x6 index cards.



Tammy provides prompts for each day...however I have put my own spin on the challenge and LOVE it!!



Each week I pick my own theme...one week I used vintage girls, words and acrylic only. (see above cards)


The week of the 4th I only used red and blue spray ink, a few stencils, vintage images and a set of K&Co. die-cuts.




I really love how these turned out!





I make sure and date each card. I have been using lined notebook paper and a Sharpie.


The week of July 7th I used various images, acrylic paint, rub-ons and doodles.



This is one of my favorites from the entire challenge!




I LOVE this card!! There is is just something about that little girl's expression.



Last week Dina Wakely's Scribbly Bird stamp set came in the mail...so you know what I did:)




Some of the birds I stamped directly on the cards...while others I stamped on book paper and cut out.



Each cards background is one color...I used my gelato's and water for that.
  

I am so into stars!!






My favorite one



If you have been thinking about purchasing these bird stamps...DO IT!! I had thought about it for months then just did it!! There are so many uses for these darling stamps!! I bought mine here and was impressed with their fast service:) 

This week my sweet family and I are headed to Las Vegas!! Dave and I have been 12 times and always said once our kids were old enough we would take them, too. So THIS Wednesday, bright and early we are OFF!! Looking forward to getting away and having FUN!!

What have you been creating this summer?? Are you going anywhere on vacation?? I would love to hear!!!

  3. Hi Leslie,

    You've been VERY busy! I love everything you've made here. Oh, I've been seeing those bird stamps on projects all over the place -- and I WANT THEM. Yep, gonna have to break down and place an order.

    Have fun in Las Vegas. I have friends that live there - one of which is a police officer. He loves his job and everyone he works with.

    As for my creative adventure this summer - well, I've been knitting. I know, kinda weird as it's not really something you think about doing in the hot months.

    Hugs,
    Kay
