Hi there! Today I have a fun Christmas card to share:
I dusted off a Stampendous stamp from my stash which actually has three little penguins in a row but I masked the other two so I could feature just one. The sentiment is from a PTI stamp set.
 I'm joining along with the following challenges: the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge is to feature a penguin:

 Hi there! Today I have a couple of Autumn projects to share featuring pretty fall die cut leaves. First up is a tag:
The tag features a stamped / heat embossed doily on water color paper. I embellished with a die cut leaf which I had applied various Distress Inks:
I'm joining along with the Tag You're it! challenge where the challenge was to be inspired by the sample shown below:
 Next up is a greeting card:
The card is very similar which also features a die cut leaves and a watercolored background:

Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI September Blog Hop. This month's challenge was to create a project inspired by the pretty picture shown below:
I was inspired to use the fun bird image from the Round and Round set to feature as the focal point using the chalkboard technique. I embellished with foliage from the Spruce and Sprigs set and a small die cut flower. 
I also made a similar Christmas card:
I'm joining along with the following challenges:
For sketch inspiration, I'm playing along with the Paper Players Sketch challenge:

a season of Blessings 21

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, September 24, 2017 @ 8:47 AM | ,

Hi there! One thing I miss about living in the northeastern US is the abundance of pretty fall foliage in my backyard. We are taking a road trip to Flagstaff located in northern AZ to soak in some of that natural beauty! With the change of seasons on my mind, I created a mixed media style Autumn art project featuring a homemade wreath on an 8" x 8" art board:
I was inspired by the September Mixed Media Place challenge moodboard for color:
To create the wreath, I die cut a collection chipboard of leaves, added lots of crackled texture paste then painted using a variety of glazes. In between the leaves, I tucked in some gathered twigs from my backyard :) 
I embellished with a variety of metal trinkets:

I stamped and partially heat embossed a  sentiment using gold embossing powder. I wanted lots of texture on the background as well, so I using texture paste along with a stencil:
I'm also linking my project to the following sites: Stamps and Stencils challenge where we are challenged to use Metallics, Paint Party Friday and 30 in 30 Day 23.

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Be Sweet ;)

 Happy Friday! Any fun weekend plans? Today I'm joining along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a project Mixing Floral stamp sets.
I stamped the background using a combination of floral images from the PTI Bloomin' Cute and the Beautiful Bloom stamp sets:
 Once I had the background stamped and die to to size, I embellished with stamped/die cut leaves and a decorative sprig from the Bloomin' Cute stamp set along with a die cut layered blossom on top:

For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge:
Up next, is a small 8" x 8 "oil painting featuring a couple of hibiscus:
I'm linking my painting to this week's Paint Party Friday and 30 days in 30 Day 21.
Many thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas 21

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, September 20, 2017 @ 6:23 AM | ,


Hi! Today I'm joining along with the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge where the challenge is to create a card featuring a decorated tag using texture, bling and die cuts.
 Here's my take on the challenge:
For texture, I dry embossed a piece of watercolor paper, spritzed on Ranger Meadow Distress Ink, followed with spritzed water. Once dry, I randomly stamped and heat embossed some fun polka dots. I embellished the die cut tag with a die cut snowflake, die cut leaves and a sentiment strip then randomly adhered some bling:
Up next is a 9" x 12" piece of canvas paper that I have been practicing painting impressionistic style roses on using oil paints:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday and the 30 in 30 Day 19 sites:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great day / evening!
Be Sweet ;)
