I adore Dr. Suess, he seems to have been very smart right? Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. Don't you love that so much?
Today is all about the moments for me!
Ang inspired me for some mixed media this morning!
I just grabbed this canvas. I got 4 of them for $4.99 at Ross which is a store like a TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Home Goods.
I slapped some acrylic paint onto the canvas, then I added some more white to lighten it up and painted over a Tim Holtz stencil then I stamped on the butterflies from Keep Going Anyway. I did put an old wooden stamp under the canvas to get something firm to stamp on. I didn't think that would work on the edge so I stamped the sentiment on paper and adhered it with Modge Podge.
Strength grows in the moments when you think you can't go on but you keep going anyway.
How beautiful is this card Amanda made? My goodness I love it so much!! I love that she stamped the Donna Poppy in the bottom corner like that!
I also love the sentiment she used. Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.

My project for today was inspired by a few sets of distress crayons I found on
sale the other day. They’ve been out for a while and I’ve been a bit reluctant
to try them as they reminded me of another supply I already have a ton of in my
craft room. Well, after getting them, I couldn’t wait to try them with Unity’s
SMAK Kit from February 2017.
Before I knew it, my afternoon flew by. These crayons were easy to use, not
very messy if you didn’t want to get messy, have a pen-grip style, glide
on easily, and were very effective using water through stencils. When I first
saw them, I thought they would be a lot like gelatos, which I have a ton of, and
well, I didn’t want to add more to what I already had. Because of their pen-grip
style, control, and distress colors, I think I like them better than
What do you think about using distress crayons? Know of any easy techniques I
could try? Please share with me. I'd love to know.
I am swooning over this SMAK kit. So many beautiful images!
My project today was a window card. I thought it would fun to make a card with this kit! The window opens up and has a message inside, okay maybe two. I just couldn't decide so I used 3 out of the 4 sentiments that come in this kit.
