Everyday in 2015 I am making a lil piece of art to randomly gift as acts of kindness and to spread creative goodness to others... This is yours to keep: Enjoy!! The other half of the challenge is to take a pic and post it to social media using #creativedeed365. Needless to say I fell off for a while but I'm getting back on and here's a handful that I created to share with the world. Come join in on the fun!!

I found these two frames at a local thrift store for $.99!!! I grabbed them up thinking "I can do something with these, however I had no clue at the time. My staff knows that I am into crafts and how I will take something and turn it into something else. One day one of my staff walks in with theses cowgirl pieces, which are actually magnets. I accepted them with excitement knowing I could do something with them but not at that time as to just what exactly. Some time later I win a paper pack of scrapbook papers that I stored with many other packs of paper. My vision began to come together so I go and search for the Julie Nutting cowgirl stamp. Had to take a trip out to the Scrapbook Expo to find it as this one is a slightly older one. As I work on putting this together one of my crafty friends gifts me some stickers that I incorporate to the piece. Finally pulled it all together and I am pleased.
Today I created a Mixed-Media piece. I began with a recycled piece of cardboard and used acrylic paints to create a background. Once paint dried, I layered with stamps, doilies, scraps of burlap, washi tape, bling, a metal piece and stickers. The image of the lady is Emily, a Bloom stamp by Jamie Dougherty at primamarketinginc.com. Because I don't poses the skills of coloring, I stamp on skin tone paper and color in the hair and other small details and precisely cut her out. After adhering her to the board I continue to layer with flowers, a butterfly and a metal clock.
