We're Blushing...

TGF is BLUSHING....

...and you'll see WHY when you check out the BRAND NEW, Fresh-faced group of FARMERS announced today on the TGF BLOG!   I am SO, SO excited to be working with another talented bunch- and these ladies really are the cream of the crop...I think you'll agree :)

A HUGE, warm, TGF-style welcome to:


 and our Guest Designer who is NO stranger to TGF, Jen Shults!  Just wait til you see what she has up her sleeve for us this month!

How's that for a bunch of blushing beauties?!?   Well, turns out we're not the ONLY ones BLUSHING at TGF....

...introducing the BRAND-NEW TGF BLUSH SOCIETY!!!

We are thrilled to bring you TWO brand new card, scrapbook, and mixed-media friendly backgrounds to compliment SPLOTCHY released a few months ago....with our HEART Background and HELLO Background!   In addition, the pride and joy of the new BLUSH SOCIETY?   We bring you Blush Bonnie and Blush Babbette...two new "blushing beauties" that will be fantastic for cards, art journaling, and MORE!    Here is my project, using Blush Bonnie, the "Hello" background, and hearts.  Remember my ART JOURNAL that I showed you a while back that I finally began?  Well, here's the latest page!  I am SO excited:

I painted a tree/grass/cloud background using Claudine Hellmuth paints on a watercolor paper that I had Gesso'd a head of time.  I stamped Bonnie on Tissue paper using StazOn and adhered her w/ mod podge to my page, then I painted her.  I really LOVE art journaling even though I'm still really wet behind the ears...but whatcha think?

There is so much excitement buzzing around the Farm today, you'll definitely want to start on the TGF BLOG because we have a HUGE PRIZE PACK to give away today for visiting us NEW Farmers and leaving some love and your thoughts on the new "BLUSH SOCIETY!"  We can't wait to hear them!

That's it for me today, but I'll be back later this week, still blushing ;), with MORE TGF previews!
