Living the Dream Part #2

Linking up with Texture Tuesday I used Sagebrush by KK at 75%


I am back today to show you what I have been up to.
I really do love it here in Boulder City.  I have been getting
up early with my husband and taking morning walks once he leaves for work.
It really is a beautiful city.  But I must get that walk in early or it gets way to hot. 



Linking up with Tuesday Muse.  added texture by Nancy is Asian Influence at 100% soft light


Last week I told you I did another page in my Art Journal.
A trailer that is..  I must admit I like the first one better.  
But I did have fun playing around with this one..




My girlfriends came over and they think I should take a photo of this
page and then put the photo on a canvas..  I just had to giggle and say why not
just do it on the canvas in the first place.  We shall see what I do. 




Also my friends daughter Graduated from High School.
I had some fun creating this card for her.




Yep, I pulled out my sewing machine once again.




I have been busy working on another Journal page.
Its for a new challenge that is going on.  Its a Mixed Media Color Challenge.
I hope I get my page done before this challenge ends.


I want to say thanks once again for all the wonderful comments 
you all leave me.  It really makes my day!

Hugs!

Oooo! I just love how you've totally rocked that monochromatic palette in your journal, and that lace banner, on your card, is perfectly divine!

It's hot here, too. I'm thinking I need to drag my kiddos out for a walk, before we even get breakfast tomorrow ;).

Tracy said...

See, I told you you needed to have one of your trailer projects hanging up in Big Bertha. :-) This one is great too and your graduation card is really lovely. Hugs!

I like this journal trailer too; feels more vintage, but I like it just as well. Such a cute trailer! Your graduation card is lovely. Pretty pink and a gorgeous pennant trim. Your stitching is perfect too :)

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

That little camper is adorable Linda. Happy you are able to continue playing with your art even if in confined quarters. xo

Pride In Photos said...

Everything you do is always precious...sigh♥

Terry said...

I love both of your "Happy Camper" journal pages! I think this one being more neutral in color has a grungy feel, so you know I love it! What a pretty card for a graduation and you are still sewing! I don't even walk anymore as in the evening it is too windy anymore! It does wear on you with the heat and dust all about! Hugs!

Nicki said...

Beautiful work on each of these.

Gail Dixon (La.Belle) said...

Your creativity continues to impress! Such beautiful work filled with color and a little whimsy.

Becca said...

So pretty Linda! I love the lace banner on the card. I love this trailer, because you know me I dig those neutral tones! I'm sure you'd have a lot more fun if you just did it on a canvas, and then you'd have another "original" but if you got a good enough print of it, you could do lots of stuff with it!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

What a fantastic project! Love all the little details.
I love your sweet pink card too!
I wish I could take morning walks, urgh.... but when I wake up each morning, it is time for lunch! LOL!

Crafting Queen said...

Really lovely card.

Heather Jensen said...

Such a pretty pink card. I like the lace trim for the banner.

Your journal page is darling! I love it and the vintage vibe it has. :)

Milagros C. Rivera said...

Gorgeous photos, journal and beautiful card!!! I recognize that banner lace ;) Loved spending time here!

Linda B said...

Linda, your photos and art journal page are beautiful... the trailer is amazing... love it! Your card for Rachel is gorgeous... it's really something that you are able to do all this in your trailer, but that's talent not position. You are just one amazing lady... I'm so happy for you!
Hugs!

Charlene said...

Hi Sweetie! I love your trainer journal page its soooo cute!! And your card is adorable!! I'm so glad you had fun with the moms and dads in Arizona!! Hugs!

Sandie Edwards said...

Love the sewing on your card, so pretty. Walking in the heat is no fun Linda, but early walks can be so nice... its cold here at the moment. Must make more effort to walk our beach and find some treasures. I love, love love your photographs, they are always inspiring. When I grow up, I want to take photo's like you! :-)
