Mixed Media Place Creative Gym #20

Hey everyone. I hope you are all well. I am doing very well and I am really enjoying creating again and finding my lost "me" time again. It's always so hard for a mother to find a hobby that allows personal time without taking away family time, especially when the kids are young. Unfortunately I am the furthest you would find to being selfish, and I simply cannot go against my very nature and start doing things JUST for me. Creating is perfect because it can be done any time of day which is the biggest challenge mothers and of course myself face. So it has been great so far :) 

So I have been keeping my eye on the Mixed Media Place blog as it is full of inspiration. Have you visited it yet? 

I did a bit of shopping there about a month ago, as they also have an online shop which is based in Europe but has a whole heap of things you cannot find easily in Australia. My order arrived just the other day and I could not wait to get started.

Their current challenge is this mood board...



We are free to interpret this any way we like and create anything we like. So I created this card for this challenge. This card is for a friend, who upon hearing I am starting to create again but have NO supplies,  sent me a HUGE box full of things to play with. The things she sent me was all things that I would use which to me it means she knows me well and knows my style well,  so thank you Maria :)

 Stuff like that always make me a little emotional and VERY thankful for good friends and to tie it in with the Mixed Media Place challenge, I would say that friends like that are WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF! OK OK very loose interpretation of the challenge but I just wanted to play along OK? LOL But in all seriousness, acts like that mean a lot to me. Not because I got free stuff. But because she is a busy mother of 4 and took time out of her day to send something to ME :) 


Here is a picture of me mid creation... I REALLY LOVE these new acrylic paints from Finn for Prima. 




I have used the most stunning collection from 7 Dots Studio , 9th Wave, which I purchased from Mixed Media Place. And by purchased, I mean I only purchased 1 sheet and 1 die cuts sheet because that is all that sadly available as I do not think they print it anymore. If there is anyone out there with any 9th Wave paper or stickers etc I would love to buy them off you and pay for postage to send them to me :) 





I added the Art Alchemy acrylic paint to the background and as accents over the flowers. I also used Prima's Art Ingredients Art Stones, Mica Flakes and Glass Glitter to build texture. 




The flowers are from Kaisercraft. 



Well that is all for today. I hope I have inspired you somewhat! Have a great weekend!
