Be True to You....



I have been having a lot of fun playing around with some mixed
media Art..  I had taken a couple of classes from
Chiristy Tomlinson and have started a Mixed Media journal.
Lots of fun!!


My journal is going to be about all the thing I love in life.


Here is the cover of my Journal.
I was torn on what color I was going to use.  I was thinking of designing it
with the color green.  But at the last minute decided on pink.
I am pretty happy with my decision.   


As of right know I only have a couple of pages done!


These first pages have everything to do with Me and the love of 
my life "My Husband".










I am still playing around with these pages,  But I thought I would share them
with you anyway.


So I have to say I have been having so much fun with these pages
Lots of paint, watercolors, stencils, doodling, decoupaging, stamping.
Doesn't that sound fun!!

I am linking this up with The Color of Summer..
The color this week is PINK!!
To check it out you can hop over HERE.

You should check out Christy's classes..
They are well worth the money.


Here's a little video if you want to check out her work!


Well that's all I have for today.. 

I do hope you are all having a fabulous week.

Hugs, Linda
