Hi there! I hope you are doing well. Today was a great day! While Scott watched football, my dear sister, Tina and I took advantage of the beautiful warm weather here in the desert. We went for a 20 mile bike ride then came home and had some crafting time. I took on another type of exercise at the Mixed Media Place Creative Gym and joined along with the Exercise #2 challenge ~ go 3D!


I altered a wooden birdhouse that I had on hand:
Here's what it looked like before I got my inky hands on it ;)
I added texture to all four sides, embellished with various trinkets then added a variety of inks and paint. I covered the roof with buttons from my stash, covered with a coat of Gesso, followed with blue ink, Gesso and a dusting of course glitter:


Using the same color palette, I made a tag joining along with the Prima 12 Days of Christmas Cards Day #2 ~ Prima dies:
I added texture using Prima Light Texture Paste along with a Prima stencil to a pretty piece of paper from the Prima Vintage Vanity collection.
After adding various inks to the background, I embellished with a wooden snowflake, a die cut that was made using one of the Prima Flowers Set of 3 dies and a beautiful Prima flower:
For color inspiration for both projects, I joined along with Colour Me creative challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great Friday!
Be Sweet ;)

Let the Light of the season Shine... 22

Hi there! I hope you are having a great week! I can't believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving ~ yikes! So much to do ~ so little time. No travel plans for us ~ how about you? I've been having so much fun playing with a couple of the PTI shaker dies.
I filled each shaker with some snow like glitter and silver sequins:
I pulled out some really old pre glittered paper to use for the sentiments and ornament extras. I love that the glitter doesn't end up everywhere!
I also pulled out an embossing folder to add design and dimension to the backgrounds:
For the first color inspiration, I joined along with the Fusion challenge:

 and for the second card color inspiration, I joined along with the Merry Monday challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day and Happy Thanksgiving to all whom celebrate!
Be Sweet ;)

Merry Christmas to you...November PTI Blog Hop 43

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, November 25, 2014 @ 11:39 AM | , , ,

Hi there! It's that time of month again ~ time for the PTI Blog Hop! This month's challenge the theme is snow
I made a trio of three similar Christmas cards featuring a snowflake shaker that I made using one of the beautiful PTI Damask Snowflake dies:
I filled each snowflake with shimmery snow like glitter and sequins:
All three sentiments are from the PTI Vintage Ornaments Stamp Set:
My goal was to keep them rather flat to cut down on postage cost yet keep them pretty:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Fusion challenge:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ happy hopping!

LOVE nature 31

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, November 23, 2014 @ 4:03 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I joined along with the Compendium of Curiosities 3, Challenge 16:
For theme inspiration, I joined along with the current Our Creative Corner challenge where we are challenged to create a project based on Magical Nature Moments:
I scrapped a photo that was taken about 15 years ago when I was hiking with my children in Allegany State Park located in upstate New York where I used to live:
Using the layering stencil: embossing technique I added lots of gold shimmery detail to the background using the Tim's Burlap stencil:
I'm lovin' all the new metallic Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain. The flowers, gears and leaves were all colorized using various metallic Distress Spray Stains:

The die cut foliage was made using Grunge paper, coated with Gesso followed with Distress Crackle Paint then Distress Spray Stains. I think the Crackle Paint is too old because it didn't leave a nice crackle effect :(
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the My Scraps and More Sketches sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)
