For my project, I chose to work with my favorite mix from the release, Lisa's Starry Night!!!! And, my inspiration came straight from the masterpiece that inspired this mix....No automatic alt text available.

I broke out my watercolors pencils and Shimmerz Mists in Mama Sings the Blues as well as Mandarin Mai Tai, to create my own version of Van Gogh's Starry night in my travelers notebook and paired it with a wonderful quote by him that just is one of my favorite.

Stuck Sketches Sept 1st Challenge!! (Guest Designer!!!)

I am SO excited to start off September as a Guest Designer for the September 1st sketch challenge!!!
 You can see the sketch and my take on it below...
I absolutely adored the sketch and had so much fun creating this layout! I used a mix of Shimelle's Little by Little collection, Echo Park's Perfect Princess and Simple Stories Simply Enchanted as well as some Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine for splatters and Shimmerz paints for my background. I stitched around the edges with pink thread. I just love this layout and hope you enjoy it also!
