My first Mixed Media Project

Hello Bloggers,
My internet is down and I am posting l from my galaxy note 2 !
Todays post is for Tracy Weinzapfel Studios - June 2013 Creative Dare-Your Powerful Truths. This is my first mixed media project, well my second try. I started out with a totally different canvas I looked at it and said that s not me! l don't like it!  I gesso'd over it and came up with this in my sleep. I painted her with a hodged podge of Acrylic paints. I made my own textured paste and stencil. I used my cricut to create stencil and key. I also used some embossing powder and stampology flourishes. .ooh and lastly I used Faber Castell gelatos.I had a lot of fun making this. .but more practice is diffently needed!
I think I may start an art journal too...Too bad my Aqua Zumba is on Mondays! I enjoy watching Tray's youtube videos, almost makes you feel like you were talking and typing along with the group.

Thanks for stopping by.

I for Image at the Alphabet Challenge Blog

Hi Bloggers,
Sorry I am late, it’s been a crazy week! Good and bad. Are you a Country music fan? I love all music,but Country is what I listen to most .My brother in law had to work and my sister invited me to go with her to the George Strait concert!! I have never seen him in concert!! I know as many times as he comes to Houston, and the Houston Rodeo…I have never seen him! I had such a great time!!! He is on his farewell tour this was his final concert in SanAntonio.He suppose to retaire, he did mention finishing his tour next year. Enjoyed myself I cried …tears of happiness ! Double bonus I got to spend some one on one time with the Sotomayor girls.
Sad news late Friday night while we were at dinner I received a text from a co-worker my bosses daughter passed away in a huge fire, which claimed the lives of 4 firefighters and seriously injured 3 other firefighters.The last time this many fire fighters were lost was in the 70’s or 80’s. Houston had a huge memorial service for the 4 fighters.The private funeral service was beautiful, she was a lovely person inside and out.My prayers go out to the Sullivan family along with all the other fire fighters.
Good/ bad news after a month of full of doctor appoints, catscans and optomologist/nuerologist appointments we now know why my daughter was in so much pain. Migraines! Continuous migraines! She was given medicine which seems to be helping.Now we are on a hunt to find out what causes them.The pain was so bad, Dr. asked her to start a food log.Thankfully all will be ok for my baby girl….which isn’t a baby anymore.
