Scrapping, Painting, Upcycling!

 all on cereal box boards.
turning some old pieces into scrap pages.
 sparkle sparkle!
 the background below I made for Mindy's Paint Your Story.  It was the perfect background for my 3.


 Reach is fun!  I added blingy words above my head that read Reaching.  The words around my crown??? are from Eminem.  yup yup!  If you had one moment, would YOU capture it?
with Reaching...quick phone pic! bad indoor light.  Boo.
 Tattoo me is nearly complete.   This one has been a source of vexation.  It started fab, but now not so...

I am finding this great fun to take old paintings and journal pages I made for whatever, laying around with no home, and turning them into scrappy fun.  Scrapbooking is really how this whole journey started for me, and I don't want to forget it.  I feel messy scrappy hands getting warm now though, and I am liking it!!!  Woot!  I have a couple more of these started, but not sure where they are going.  

So, do you know where these are going?  I'll tell you here!  They are off to Somerset Memories today, with high hopes that they like my painting scrappy board creations! Wow, I just put that out there. Little scary!!!  Now, I need to go finish Tattoo Me!

  6. Well, I was right ~ I would have never guessed in a million years that these were done on cereal boxes! I absolutely love to just stare at your pieces...its like a unwrapping a present because the more you look the more you discover :) Im in love with the phrase *reach*... Such a simple word, but says volumes! & yes my dear you deserve all the credit in the world, you just go ahead and keep on reaching!! Happy Mother's Day!! xo
