Creative Therapy and Scrapmuse

This weekend Em and I were in a friend's wedding and I have been crazy busy!!! Just wanted to give a quick update. I've got some great photos to edit and scrap! I just saw that my layout - You're Everything is in the Hall of Fame at Scrapping the Music!! Yay! And I got the Catwalk with my fiber art piece last week, too!

This is quite possibly my most favorite piece of art that I have made:

First the rest of my work with the March kit from Scrapmuse. I wrote a technique article on how I make my painted collage backgrounds - like the one here:

And a photo that I love that I scanned from my mom's pictures. Me and one of my brothers and my sister.

Living in Florida we rarely, if ever see snow, but all winter, Emma kept asking if it would snow today. ;)

And Creative Therapy - Catalyst 53 is up! Create a piece of art around a memory or occasion that has no photos. This is what I made Michelle for her wedding gift. Inspired by Kelly Rae Roberts and the other artists in her book. It is a paper collage on a wooden base with acrylic paint and covered in bees wax.

I sketched the girls in with pencil first and then painted with acrylics.

Stop by and see the other artists take on the challenge! I promise you will be inspired! Well I am off to visit blogs and see what you all have been up to! :) See you soon!


  1. Your painting is fantastic. Love the layouts and how you do the backgrounds. Your one gifted lady.

  2. OMG! I seriously need to pick my jaw up off the floor! Wow!! That collage is AMAZING, lucy!! I'm sure michelle absolutely loves it! I feel like I am "just" a scrapbooker, but you, my friend, are truly an artist!! I love the layouts, too! Poor em in the so sad one! Once again, I just wanted to tell you how nice it was to chat with you :-)

  3. Hey Lucy!!! Your painting blows me away! You truly are amazing! congrats on the catwalk girl! Em is so adorable in those pictures, I would love to send her some snow! Ours is just starting to go away with the past two 60 degree days we had...
