M3 is the Mixed media Monthly group over at The-Lilypad.  This first week is a challenge using the words of the theme of this kit.  Embrace / Delightful / Possibilities 

I chose possibilities and my first thought was of my son who I just dropped off to college last week.  All products are from the M3 kits and the add-ons.  I blended 3 papers, I wanted to stick with the blue-sh tones to express my mood.  The photo is from the school clocktower building, and I used a photoshop technique to make it look drawn on the page (with the soft watercolor brush from Just jaimeeCU that is going away Aug 31st - this one here....  for $1.75 it's a great bargain on a great versatile set!).

When I think of mixed media pages in my journal, I doodle, draw, paint, glue, etc... and that is the feel I want from these challenges. i also hope to make them all 8.5x11 so I can print them on 6x8 matte paper, and keep them in my art journal.

Check out this sale!!

I know I have been crazy busy and I say that every time I am away from the blog.. but I truly have been - daughter surgery, working ate every day, starting a small business, things are nuts!

But I totally enjoyed myself today catching up on some digi shopping (and scrapping).  First the shopping.  There are 2 great things going on right now that you do not want to pass up! 1. The M3 project at The-Lilypad.  I will share my first challenge layout tomorrow.  It's a great way to start to dabble or dive into mixed media (digi style).

Check that out here!

And 2. while you are at The-Lilypad, Just Jaimee is having a CU retiring sale - everything is 65% off - she has some great styles and brushes that you will not want to miss out on! After Aug 31st they will be gone!
