I've been really busy over the weekends. With what? A scrappy class! :)

Here's Iris looking perfect while showing us some techniques using mixed media! :)

And here's some of the things I made in the class. Pretty, don't you think? :)

And guess what? I finally got my hands on the Tim Holtz distress paints!!

I tested it right away making a title card for my Week 16 of Project Life.  I just dabbed some paint on my craft mat and spritzed some water on it - then I just swipe the card onto it! :) Don't you think the colors are so so pretty? 

Should I get more colors? :)
