Now let me share with you my project....a Spring Flower Decor! Because of the colors, I was trying to get it to not look "Fall". I wanted to give it a Spring look. So here is my process:
Supplies

Step 1: Paint the base color, inside and out

Step 2: Sponge paint at least 2 colors over the black

Step 3: Add cording or rope, beginning at the bottom

Step 4: If you have vertical "cracks" like I had, fill in the cracks
by gluing on some flat cording. (Optional)

Step 5: Add more orange cord to hide the ends of yellow cord

Step 6: Now add small cord on top of orange cord (Again, optional)

Step 7: Add orange cord on top edge of rim and yellow cord
on top of the cords on the base

Step 8: Add floral foam to the inside

Step 9: Add Sheet Moss

Step 10: Begin adding greenery and your floral

FINAL PROJECT
NOTE: To add to my mixed media Home Decor, I crocheted orange "slices" and
added them to the bottom of the flower pot
I hope that you enjoyed my project and that it gave you some inspiration! And be sure to join us by going to the current challenge tab and clicking the InLinkz button! Thank you for stopping by!
Blessings,

Guest Designer Project for TaylorMadeCards4U - Envelope Mini-Album

Hello, fellow crafters! Thank you so much for stopping in! Today I'm excited to share with you a project that I did as a Guest Designer for TaylorMadeCards4U.comWhat a beautiful set of papers I got to work with - My Mother's Garden Digital Kit! I also want to mention that TaylorMadeCards4U are also sponsoring Crafter's Castle Challenges for the month of April!

Below is a video on how I made this album:


My mother has been gone over 30 years now, so this brought a little joy, a few tears to my eyes, in remembering my mother. And one of the things I remember the most about my mom, was that she absolutely LOVED roses! She had rose bushes everywhere! She never ever used any kind of chemical on them to make them grow....they just grew in abundance!

Before my mom passed away, we drove by her house and there was not one rose on any of the bushes (we were stationed at an Army base at the time). The next thing I heard was my mom exclaiming..."Oh! My roses!" and I thought, oh no, she's going to be sad because there aren't any roses....and the next statement she made threw me for a loop. She said, "Aren't they beautiful!?"

I truly believe this was God allowing her to see her roses that she cherished one last time, as she went on to Heaven 2 weeks later. What a memory for me! So I dedicate this project to my Mom and rose lovers everywhere! I hope this will inspire you to create too!








Be sure to check out Monica's new shop as she has moved from Etsy. TAYLORMADECARDS4U
Although I didn't use the layered rose sheet, I will be soon! 
  

I hope that you find this inspirational and that you will come back for more inspiration!

Easter is on its Way
Our amazing sponsors for this challenge are:

Prize ~ 3 Digital Images




Prize ~ 2 Sets




Prize ~ 3 Digital Stamps

Now let me share with you what I used....the CUTEST IMAGE EVER! I absolutely love this digi - Easter Mice by Polkadoodles.  I knew right away that I wanted to use my Prismacolors for this image. It just felt right. So I did! Lol. I did use some gel pens on parts of the image, though, but the majority was using Prismacolors. I also used papers from the Paper Temptress. If you need some great paper, that's the place to go! 

I hope that you will join us for our new challenge! And have fun with it!! That's the most important part of creating....enjoying what you do!
