easy mixed media tutorial

I shared this a few months ago on my friends blog but wanted to share it here as well!!

I have a creative brain...which means I have issues with ideas popping into my head and then ACTUALLY making them a reality. I fully realize that not every idea that pops into ones head needs to become a reality...but for a creative person we kinda think they do! 

This project was loosely inspired by a photo my best friend shared on Facebook one day (years ago). When we were getting our three girls bedroom all set up I knew I wanted to make this project come to life...and it has changed a bit from the original idea but I love how it turned out.

 It started with a HUGE blank canvas, 20x30 huge! And this wrapped canvas was hung on the girls wall...and neglected. When you run a creative business and have 5 kids and a part time job the things you want to do for YOUR home rarely get done in a timely manner. So this hung in their room for almost a year. And then I had had enough and I needed to get working on it so I wouldn't go crazy!!

FREE valentines day bookmarks

Hi there friends!! So glad to be back with you today!! I hope you are all enjoying this year...is it crazy that January is already over? Time really doesn't slow down does it?! My kiddos have been sick with strep throat and a lingering cough...good thing you can't catch germs from reading a blog. I have just started to come down with the cough and the head cold in the last couple of days. I hope you and your family have remained healthy so far this year!
So in the midst of being sick I asked my kids if they would like for me to create Valentines that they can color for their friends, like I did last year. They were so excited at the idea and said a resounding YES!!! So, I'm excited to bring you my second set of downloadable, printable, giftable valentines. 
This time I decided to make them as bookmarks...my kiddos LOVE to read and they are always looking for a bookmark, so I figured it may not be an issue for only my kids. I thought it would be fun for them to give a little "gift" with their Valentines Day wishes!!
These are FREE for you to download and print as many times as you need, for personal use. I made a sheet more suited for girls and one more suited for boys, but obviously both pages can be used for both genders. I was thinking of my own kids when I made these and my son is not interested in telling anyone they are "Sweet" or that he loves them! ;)
Please don't alter, copy or reproduce to sell these bookmarks, just send your friends here to download and print their own!!

You can download the boys bookmark Valentines HERE!!
