A few weeks ago, I was reading my daily blogs and came across this, at one of my daily reads at Lain Ehmann's Blog. :) She is doing a list of 5's lately. I love it....almost always I am inspired by Lain and what she puts on her blog. She has put everything on there from books she wants to read to exercise equipment she wants to get or really likes. :)
Well, in her 5 Fave's for August 17th, she had put 5 things that make her smile. :) At the end of the blog post, she asked what makes us smile. Almost IMMEDIATELY...I was inspired. I wanted to do a Mini-Album that SHOWCASED all that makes me smile on a daily basis. :)
I had read a couple days later, on Facebook, that Tattered Angels was having a Design Team Call. Since, this is quickly becoming a way for me to follow my dream...I decided to try. I had some small canvas that I thought would be wonderful to try to create on and I had been wanting to explore what I could do with Glimmer Mist. So, I got out my acrylic paint mediums that I had from when MOS (Moumtains of Scraps), my old (now retired) web group that I was a part of, when they had a challenge for all of us to try to use paint on our layouts.
So, there I am Resin Sand, Gel Medium, and Sculpting Paste in hand and some Glimmer Mist that was begging to be used. :) With the mixtures I made, I was able to apply 6 different colors to the canvas for the book. :)
Then it was time for me to use my Tattered Angels goodies that I have been DYING to have a good reason to use. Yes, I can be a horder of all things scrappy at times...but I felt I found the perfect showcase to use all of the stuff I had! :)
This is what I came up with! :)
The Library Pocket is filled with EVEN MORE of my fave things!! I put blogs, food, drinks, books, etc! :)
The last page reads: "When life seems to be draggin' you down that things will always get better and......It's All Good!!
