Let's Get Fresh

Howdy bloggers , Lisa here with a Friday Mixed media update .
Yay , a new fresh "one" year is upon us and new creative flow happening too, 
so collect your stash and go create and start the year with a bang.
Which is what I have tried to do despite my time restrictions .
With finally a few days off to create and my online scrapping buddy Ruby here to inspire me ,
I happily pumped a few layouts out on Wednesday and
 here is one I'm going to share today.
Family Play Time .
As our kids get older and move out of home,
opportunities for spontaneous fun family time dwindles away,
 this layout celebrates the connection and hope for new times 
and experiences to be shared ,photographed and documented .
 Starting with White marshmellow  Bazzill cardstock
I painted a background strip with Liquitex Teal paint 
, misted the bottom with Teal and Lemon Dylusions ink sprays ,
 spritzed it , let it run and then , let it dry.
Out comes a simple Tim Holtz Reed/Weed/Plant..something stencil and a little acrylic masking to imprint the image twice in black, mustard and pink cermacoat acrylic paint
(don't ask me what I was thinking there regarding the colour combo)
A little Staz On ink stamping in script and some signature drippy paint and our basic background is completed . Now, time to Type some meaningful words , using the
 Out comes the Kinder Kreations chipboard which is inked with Staz On black for effect.
A few strips of Moroccan print tissue paper , a little washi tape
Mounted Instax photos on black cardstock
some American Crafts word stickers, time holtz strip sticker
 and a few random unknown embellies and this baby was complete. 
I hope you all are ready for a super fun creative year ahead.
I am , I'm pumped , to learn , to create , to share .
So lets get arty and make this next year, the best yet .
