P13 Sea la Vie Mixed Media Collage Tutorial for Make & Take Tuesday

Hello, Friends!  Would you like to join me down by the sea for this P13 Sea la Vie Mixed Media Collage Tutorial?  We can dig our toes into the sand, let the beach breeze blow the cobwebs out of our brain, and maybe even pick up a few treasures as we stroll along the shore.  Can’t make it to the beach today?  Me, either!  But playing with beachy papers is the next best thing!  We’re going to have loads of fun together anyway as we create this lovely wall hanging.

When I spied this collection back in February, I knew I had to add it to my stash!  It combines two of my favorite things: a beachy theme and a red, white and blue color palette.  The papers arrived last week, and I could not wait to pull out my fussy cutting scissors and get busy!  This 6″ x 8″ mixed media collage was the end result.

Lighthouse by the Sea

Lighthouses always win my heart…and this image with the keeper’s cottage at its base is so dreamy and delightful.  I’ve nestled it amidst some pretty blue flowers that I dry brushed with white chalk paint, scattered shells and soaring sea gulls.  (OK…true confession…these are not seagulls.  They are doves.  But we can pretend, can’t we? )

Salt-Sprayed Seahorse

Spattered white chalk paint lends the illusion of salt spray on this handsome seahorse.  In the video tutorial, you’ll get to see how I layered all these elements together to create a sense of depth and dimension.

A Bottle Full of Shells

Real sea shells and sea sand draw the eye to this sweet little bottle of shells that I tucked into the collage.  Don’t you just love a red, white and blue beach collection?

If you’d like to see how the layers and elements of this collage were put together, I hope you’ll  enjoy this YouTube video.

I hope this Make & Take Tuesday tutorial was fun and refreshing .  I know I enjoyed making it!

P13 Stitched with Love Folio Completed!

P13 Stitched With Love Folio Completed!  Crafty City YouTube Hop Project

Hello, Friends!  About 3 weeks ago, I introduced you to this lovely P13 Stitched With Love Collection. The kit was provided to me for a YouTube hop celebrating Crafty City’s 10 year anniversary.   Here’s a reminder of what came in my kit:

Crafty City 10 Year Anniversary YouTube HopToday I’m here to share the completed folio project with you.

P13 Stitched with Love Folio by Kathy Clement for Crafty City YouTube Hop PHoto 01

This 8×8 “made from scratch” trifold folio turned out even better than I had hoped.  Sewing themed projects always remind me of my mom.  She was a master seamstress and her favorite color was pink.  I spent many, many happy hours as a young girl sitting beside her as she stitched up curtains, dresses, pillows and even coats and bonnets for my baby sister.  The hum of a sewing machine takes me right back to those cozy moments.  Mom also taught me how to embroider…and she tried to teach me how to knit & crochet.  The embroidery lessons “took”.  The sewing, knitting and crochet lessons, not so much!

I hope you’ll enjoy this video tour of my completed project.  The folio is filled with lots of sweet surprises.  And I even managed to create a lovely stack of greeting cards using the leftover bits.

Cosy Winter Christmas Window Shopping Card

Cosy Winter Christmas Window Shopping Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Let’s do a little Cosy Winter Window Shopping this morning, shall we?  When I was growing up in my small Vermont town, I loved to stroll the winter sidewalks with my mother.  All of Main Street (the whole block!) was decked out in Christmas lights. In spite of the icy air, every shop window beckoned us to linger just a few seconds longer to take in the tantalizing Christmas goodies on display.  Salvation Army bell ringers braved the cold as their cheery chimes rang out up and down the street. We rarely had any spare coins in our family, but somehow Mom always managed to save 10 dimes for me to drop into their black kettles.  Ah, such lovely memories of a simpler, gentler time!

P13 Cosy Winter Shaker Card by Kathy Clement Photo 01

I sought to capture the simple warmth and nostalgia of that memory in this sweet little card.  Evergreen boughs, jingle bells,  Merry Christmas ribbon and red posies adorn my shop window.

No bustling sidewalks here, but I do love the border created from Tan Delicate Stitched Satin and Joy Sherry Satin Ribbons from  the November Ribbon Club Assortment.

You can’t see it here, but this evergreen bough sparkles with glittering snowflakes.

A Peek Inside

Ribbon warms up the inside of the card as well.  I love the texture and pattern the Merry Christmas Ribbon adds to the treat pocket.

If you were lucky enough to grow up in a small town, perhaps you enjoyed the excitement of Christmas window shopping, too.  At any rate, I’d love to hear some of your Christmas memories in the comment section below.

You’ll find a linked supply list below this post.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
