Mimi Leinbach: Scarlet Lime Inspirational Projects

This kits this month at Scarlet Lime are gorgeous but I also added some fun stuff from the mixed media store which are so dang fun you have to add these to you stash.

With the frugal kit this month I create this layout of my boys on a trip to Universal Studios. We had such a fun day. I added some fun stamps and Claudine Hellmuth Paints which are my new favorite products.


Check out how the paints draw out the design on the book plate.

This layout was based on this photo which totally inspired me.


Next I decided that I wanted to create a few new pages in my art journal based on this photo and Christy's amazing mixed media classes.


My love of the beach, all things tropical and these fantastic colors helped me create these pages...

I also tried a new product to me this month. These Faber-Castell Gelatos make such fantastic colors as you can see in this photo, draw a little on add a touch of water on a paintbrush and gorgeous water color designs appear...just like magic!
