Painty Time at the Park

My sister made me completely jealous over the weekend, she attended a paint out in Akron at a park. Well today I'm having my very own paint out :) After dropping the boy off at violin practice, I packed up some gear and headed to the park. I'm going to do some sketching and painting of my own today.  Here's my set up: blanket to sit on, Watercolors, a few brushes, Pitt pens, pencil and white eraser, mini colored pencils, collapsible water cup from Faber Castell, Ranger mister bottles, iced coffee and a snack. Lets not forget the inky binkies for blotting brushes and of course some paper!!

Yes, I Sewed Something!

Most people know I'm not a good sewer. Machines and I don't get along. And my rather short ADD attention span frustrates me when sewing. But I really wanted a pretty camera strap cover and the prices I was finding for ones I like (typically with ruffles), were more than my Disney Broke budget would allow.

So I took myself to JoAnns and got fabric and ruffle trim for under $5.00! Two hours later, I have an A-FRAKIN-DORABLE camera strap cover. I even have a pocket on one end for a spare battery, and a pocket on the other end for a spare SD card. To say I'm proud if myself is an understatement! 
I even made the girl a lanyard for her point & shoot camera from the scraps (which she loves by the way).


Here's an art journal page! I used Yasutomo watercolors, Dylusions sprays, stencils, and Inktense pencils. Oh how I adore these pencils! What do ya think?

Life Art Journal page

Here's a super cute art journal page! I use a lot of my favorite goodies here- watercolor paints, decorative tapes, Viva Las Vegastamps, stencils, Inktense pencils, and the Cameo machine. The watercolors I use is the Yasutomo Koi watercolor box. It lives in my art journal bag. .  To adhere these delicate die cuts, I run them through the Zyron Sticker maker!

Happy July 4th!
