The little crafter show: Mix media Monday.

     Finally a mix media Monday. So today's mix media video I am working on the covers of the new journal. I know I still have some pages to go before I finish other journal I am working but I could not wait to at least start on the cover since I had so many ideas. Here is what I came up but to be honest I don't think that I am done, we shall see.

     So the books is had made and is 5x10. I already shared what I used  for mix media Monday journal 2 on a blog with a video. So today I am just decorating the front, back covers and adding a little closer to the book.

I used some white gesso and mixed with some Emerald dimensional gemstones form Art anthology  
 in a palate  and mix with a palate knife from Michaels craft  
 I used a two different kinds of brushes but the sponge brush worked the best for me. You can get these at any store.
I used more of the emerald paint with a stencil from stencil girl called unfinished by Seth Pater
Using a make- sponge to apply the paint, only to the front cover.

I also added a linen clear coat from Art anthology, front and back overs

I also use my creative station from Xyron which I got from amazon, I used punched the holes first with my big bite hole punch into my cricut faux leather, woodgrain.

Ribbon and jean cloth from Michaels to finish it off.

     Thank you so stopping bye today and I hope that you enjoy today's post. If you have an comments, questions please leave them down below or you can always email me at bye for now Eileen.

A new path.

I believed that when I started the down this road for better health that it so at the time what was best for me and for a time that it worked. The only problem was that I realized that my journey wasn’t just about my physical health it was about my mental health as well. I would not trade anything in for the help, the love and support that I got during my challenges. So thank you, everyone, for that.

     I am not a hundred percent where this new path is taking me, but I am feeling a lot more confident and focusing more on my inner self. I feel like I have made a significant improvement in my sessions. I do know that some months, weeks or even days are going to be better than others. I am learning to ride the waves, enjoy the journey and stop beating myself up. It started with looking at things that I wanted to change so clothing and makeup have played a massive part in this new mind swift.

     I know that some will say that those are just temporary fixes and your right. I …

While at the beach.

Yes, I am a plus size women at the beach. Yes, I am wearing a two-piece swimsuit to the beach. Yes, I am having a bit of trouble with my top, that I had to readjust it a few times, it is the beach, and these things happen.  So it the couple that kept looking at me that was very rude so much so that I smiled in your face. To older people made feel out of place, again I laughed and kept looking around the beach is so beautiful to look at.
    It is the beach for crying out loud, I won't stop going, stop smiling or wearing my swimsuit. It is brand new. I got it from torrid. Maybe a bigger size may have helped, but summer is almost over.  I know that I don’t have to explain where I go my suit at, getting a bigger size or even that summer is almost over. Maybe to help someone find a great swimsuit for next summer, avoid sizing issues and I don’t want summer to end.

       I have stuff like this happen to me all the time, with all my clothes. Doesn’t matter about the fit or the col…

Working out because you love your body.

Before I start this post would love to thank everyone that has been stopping by to read and give me your input on the blog post. So thank you for my Dia friends and sisters. You all are amazing.

   I am not a doctor, coach or worked for the health department in any way. I do highly suggest that you see your doctor before working out. Take it slow,  it is not about always about losing weight it. It about building your inner and outer strength.  You also may feel some stress relief as well and can improve in a lot of other areas of your life.

     Something that read which really blew my mind,  workout because you love your body. This has helped me a lot in finally enjoying the journey. I trying not bet myself if I miss a day and listen to my collection. I have been trying to not go by the numbers on the scale but how my clothes are fitting, and that has made me a lot happier.  I have also been doing a ketosis ish) diet, working out a few days, dance class once in a while.
