Collage, Mixed Media Monday, Soldering

Hanging out

As, I am hurrying around trying to get everything done for Christmas with the in-laws this weekend and spending time with Miss College Ink since she is flying the coop and heading far up North to attend a different college in January! I thought I need a creative break! I seen Mixed Monday challenge this week is “Just Hanging Out”. So, I got busy in the shop. To do something I love that I haven’t done in ages! Collage and solder!

Simple Memo:

This week the theme at Mixed Media Monday is PINK! When I think of pink,  I think of Breast Cancer Awareness Pink ribbons. Don’t forgot to get your annual girlie exam!

Well, just under wire with the challenge for Mixed Media Monday! This is the best thing- to just play! I really am in love with mosaics now and plan to do more flower pots. For once you are going to hear me say- I need to work bigger! LOL! I learn so much and had a great time!



This is a 6 inch flower pot!

Last night my friend and I headed over a couple of county’s to a fair that Trailer Choir was playing at.  OMG, they are awesome! We got picked to go backstage and hang with Big Vinnie, Crystal and Butter! We got our photo taken by the local radio station with them too! SOOO COOL!

Meet Lilly

The theme at Mixed Media Monday is Mermaids. My muse has gone on vacation, so I stumbled on this one until tonight!


8 x 8 canvas

This is Lilly the Mermaid. She is queen of the sea.  Benner named her. Not sure why he picked Lilly for her name but I like it!  I know this is not my usually style but I thought I would give it a try!

“Come fly with me”

That is the theme this week at Mixed Media Monday! Not sure why but I had a hard time with this one. I think part of it was that I wanted to do something different, something I haven’t done in a while! So, I end up doing an 8 x 8 canvas! You all know that this is HUGE  size for me!


Hope everyone is having a good week! Next week is the ink spots spring break. He is getting really exicted about having sometime off to just hang out! I am too!

Thanks for stopping in!

Chinese proverb

This week the theme at Mixed Media Monday is Oriental.

As I am continuing to work in my Art Journal, I thought I would use a Chinese proverb for my page.


“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”

Things are finally getting back to normal in our house! I am starting to feel more like my self! SMILE!
