We recently celebrated our Independence Day here in the USA. I love to see everyone dressed in their red, white & blue to show their patriotism. My Sister In-law shared this photo of her and her beautiful daughter. Since my niece is all dolled up like a pageant queen, I wanted my layout to resemble a parade float. The colors needed to be rich and vibrant, but feminine and soft, so I turned to my stash of Gelatos®. Their creamy texture and rich pigments were just what I needed to make this layout pop!

I've had this chicken wire picture frame for about six months. I had so many ideas for it when I ordered it but I've barely touched it except for moving it from one side of my craft room to the other. Until now! I've decided to prepare for Valentine's Day by adding little love notes to it from now until February. Then it will be all ready to celebrate the month! YAY! Here's how I made my first love note for the display.

Hey sweet creatives how goes things?
here and I was finally able to carve a little creative time
into my schedule this weekend- OK not really, but I did it anyways!
The weather around here this week has been chilly (mornings in the 30's) so I was inspired
to make this mixed media winter girl painting. Of course today it was 87! But that's Texas!
She is one of four weather girls collection I have created.
Here are some pictures in progress...

Happy Holidays! Margie here with a fun holiday ornament I created using Design Memory Craft® Paper Crafter Crayon™ in a combination of red and pink colors. Not only was it FUN to make but I love how the design reminds me of crushed candy canes :) I scraped the Paper Crafter Crayons using the Palette Knife from our Gelatos Tool Set. I took about two teaspoon full of shavings and placed them into a round glass ornament.
