It's been raining for days here in Miami, defensively indoor weather. I have missed working in the garden, so the next best thing for me is playing with my paints. I decided to work on some backgrounds for my journals. I'm usually working on more than one journal at a time. This beautiful tissue paper was used to wrap some goodies a sweet friend just gave me. The minute I saw it I new I was going to use it in a journal, some how. I hope I don't eventually cover it up so much with layers of paint that I won't be able to see the pretty polka dot colors.

These little vignettes are new this year. I challenged myself not to add any new items to decorate with. It's amazing what different looks you can come up with by working with what you already have. What works for me is to clear the area completely. Then I lay all the items that I'm going to work us. I then try to pair up things that I have not used together before.

Moving things around and making room for my fall decorations. The problem comes when you like something so much that you just hate to have to put it away. So I've decided to just work around my shabby winged dressform. It's still a work in process, I'll share as soon as I get more done.

Ok so I finally took my fall decorations out and I'm planning to work on my home this weekend. I told myself I was not going to buy anything new, I have plenty of beautiful things that I really love. But, I was looking for this stick leave shape, to match the one you see already altered and I'm so happy because I found it. I'm taking my time and enjoying the process.
He is really special to me because my sister made him. I think he's so darn cute.

Ok, well this is my take on the ATC kit for this month from Your ATC Store. This is the FREE kit for the month of Oct. The kit is free with a $15.00 purchase, once this kit is gone, it's gone. But what I like is that she has lots of other beautiful ATC kits and they are so inexpensive. I was a fan of this store way before I design for them. My favorite are the little embellishments, perfect for ATCs.
This is what you get in the kit. I also uploaded a VIDEO explaining all that's in the kit.
