Simple, Fun & Sweet Love Note Display

  Chevron love w

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.

Mixed media winter girl

Hey sweet creatives how goes things?
Rita Barakat 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...

Hello friends! Lisa here with you today to bring you a fun and easy card using the Art GRIP­® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. These pencils are my babies (haha!!).

A Christmas Mixed Media Canvas


Hello to all our Design Memory Craft readers.  Leonie here today, welcome to my Christmas post.

 Christmas prepations are in full swing here along with all the usual end of year celebrations including lots of activities for my children as they come to the end of another school year.  The past couple of years I've made the same type of presents for the childrens' school teachers.   Small canvas panels depicting Christmas story scences and quotes.    The canvases themselves are the only thing I need to purchase and the rest is made up of scraps of patterned paper and a few embellishments from my stash so they work out to be relatively inexpensive gifts but each one is quite unique.
