October Special Guest, Tracy Weinzapfel

Hello and Happy Monday!

We have a very special guest with us today, Tracy Weinzapfel! We simply adore Tracy and love her quirky and inspiring Mixed Media Mondays and fun, creative style.

Before we get to Tracy's first project, let's get to know her a bit more.

What you see, is what you get....I put it all out there every day. I am the mom of three great kids (16 year old son and boy/girl 11 year old twins). For me, every day is a Nikon Moment. I am happiest behind my camera capturing life's every amazing second. I live life  with a creative edge and know that art is my calling. When I am not taking photographs I am using them in my freelance design business.  Most evenings you can find me in my art studio creating pieces using all types of mediums including my favorite acrylic paints, inks and adhesives.  I am honored to tell the amazing stories of each and every person I work with. I am proud to have created albums for movie stars our very own President of the United States, Barack Obama!
I try to live life to the fullest every day and for the most part you can catch glimpses of my crazy adventures on my blog I never know where life is taking me but one thing I know for sure is I will have my camera in hand to capture it!
Now on to her first amazing project!
Frog Dog Studio asked me to design with their kit for October. It is always an honor to be asked to design something and challenge myself. I was asked to create two mixed media pieces and this is the first one in my brand new 8.5" X 8.5" Watercolor Journal (feels so great to start a new one!) Here is the October Kit:

and here is my first project!

This was fun to create....and simple.
1. Adhere newspaper with Gel Medium
2. Spray pages with Lindy's Stamp Gang
3. Heat emboss roof, doors & windows and paint house black
4. Use embossing paste with stencil and color with PanPastels
5. Adhere black trim
6. Doodle on house with white pen
7. Adhere all items to page
8. Journal with Black Sharpie & Uniball Signo White pen

This was a fun way to start this journal...

Here are the details.,...

From my Studio to yours....Thanks for stopping by and thanks Frog Dog Studio! It is so fun to just step out and play...
