Creative Flow #5

Hey hey hello!

Man, January is just flying by! For our second Creative Flow Episode this month, I had fun creating with my mini me! (Well ok, she didn’t help me create it but she sure had fun helping me with the voice over!) As you know, or maybe you are new to the Flow, Tiffany and I both created a ‘flowish’¬† journal stuffed full of goodies and mailed them to each other. Every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month we upload a video showcasing what we have created using 3 items from the flow we were sent.

Check out my process video below to see what 3 things I chose this week:

Flowish Journal Tutorial & Flip Through

Hey hey hello my artsy friends!

So, when Tiffany over at Southern Gals Designs approached me about doing a Flowish collab on YouTube I was like, “Heck yeah!” and then I was like, “Wait, what’s a Flowish?” So, here’s what I found out. Continue reading “Flowish Journal Tutorial & Flip Through”

Brayered Paint Halloween Cards

Hello My Creative Peeps!

This week I was crazy busy. I have so much to get done before the Happily We Go store launches and October is my busiest month as I have four of my five children’s birthdays to celebrate! Buuuuut, I am hoping to still find a wee bit of crafting time each week, mainly for my own sanity! (LOL)

For this week’s Inspiby, we were inspired by the gorgeous layout from Wilna. I didn’t feel like I had as much time this week to devote to a journaling layout but knew I could use the same techniques that she showed us in her video to create some Halloween cards. Hey, If there is a way for me to kill two birds with one stone, I’m going to do it! *wink

Here’s how I created the card:
