Beauty and Style: Mixed Media Art Journal
We had a wonderful Easter weekend with family celebrating Jesus’s resurrection. Sunday morning was a little chaotic as I was trying to get dinner in the oven and get out of the house on time for church. But I was able to snap a few pictures before we left. Here is one of the pictures I took of my daughter in her Easter outfit. The ensemble is an Alexandra Dress, made of pink linen, underneath an Autumn Pinafore , made with a bunny print and a matching purse. She’s pretty cute, isn’t she?
I love spending my time making pretty things for my sweet girl to wear. Life is short and she will only be little for a short time longer. It makes me happy to see her twirl in front of the mirror in her mommy made dresses. I love when she asks me to get one of her purses down from the hook so she can carry it around the house, putting odds and ends inside. Or when she doesn’t want to take her dress off after she tries it on for the first time.
Of course I think my girl is the most beautiful ever, regardless of what she wears. Her sweetness, sassy personality and funny faces have a way of making my heart melt.
Creating the Layout
I made this layout for my daughter’s art journal. The stamps are by PaperArtsy. I made a coffee filter flower stamped and colored. The fabric scraps are left over from my daughter’s dresses.
I used PaperArtsy Infusions and Paints to color the stamps and the background.

Today, I am joining the ladies of T Day over at Elizabeth and Bleubeard’s. I am sharing my new set of yummy teas that I received from Tiesta Tea. I wrote a month or so ago that I bought some tea that I had to send back due to a terrible flavor. Some of you asked what happened. Well, I contacted customer service at Tiesta Tea and they apologized and sent me some tea mail. And this is what I got in the mail today! I will be sharing pictures in future posts.
Happy Tea Day,
