When Life Throws You a Curve | What Becca Wore Winner

Mixed Media Tag by Becca Feeken - see full supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34275

  • Where have I been?  I evacuated to get away from  Hurricane Michael, what a journey!
  • Scroll down to learn a little bit about this Mixed Media Tag.  Yep, I said it – that scary word – mixed media….
  • Could stencils, background treatments and texture paste be in your comfort zone? Comments, please :-)
  • Also included in this post, a Winner for the What Becca Wore Giveaway.
  • Lastly, a couple of words about a new toy (click to peek) that I’ve permanently added to my stash.

    Hurricane Michael

    This post has been ready to go for some time, I started to put it together while waiting in the airport in London and almost finished when I got home and then the evacuation order came.  Little did I know that less than 24 hours after getting back from the UK, that I’d be in a mandatory evacuation zone for Hurricane Michael.  You could say that I’ve aged 10 years in the last week.  I’ve come face to face with how easily life can change in the blink of an eye and so very grateful to have beautiful friends that keep a watch out for me.  I’m safe, but my town was devastated and I don’t think it’s actually sunk in how much life will change in the future.  In fact, I think writing about it makes it a little bit better and I hope you’ll indulge me.  So many things that existed two weeks ago are suddenly gone and I found myself staring at a landscape that I simply couldn’t recognize.  A whole region is dazed wondering what happened and how could it have happened so quickly.

    Thank you for those who have reached out to find out how I’m doing.  When things get serious, I tend to get quiet.  I did evacuate and found myself very lucky to have a place to evacuate.  With an order to be out by Tuesday at 6am, a day before the hurricane hit, I found myself scrambling to snatch things to take with me.  Luckily I had just walked in the door with two packed suitcases from my trip, so I put them in the car with some other important things to head out.  I watched as the reports of destruction came in and was numb with fear not knowing how bad my house may have fared.

    The infrastructure of the area was hit hard and the first things to go were gas, water, ice and food.   They expect power to come back on in my area around the last week of October.  The storm knocked out all the cell phone towers in the area and because landlines have become all but obsolete – communication ground to a halt.  The blow to electricity left so many with no way to bank, no way to process credit cards and no way to shop on Amazon.   The road back will be long and I find it’s a comfort to know you are still out there with encouragement after this disaster.   Speaking of road – I’ve driven 600 miles – three times in the last week – I go absolutely stir crazy in a car!!

    Please note:  If you have won dies, I haven’t been home to send your winnings – I didn’t even have access to the winners’ emails to set expectations.  Please bear with me while I’m evacuated – your winnings will come :-)

    My Original Post: Mixed Media Tag

    Mixed Media Tag by Becca Feeken - see full supply list at www.amazingpapergrace.com/?p=34275
    I’m home!  It’s good to be home!  I actually rolled in at 1:00 am this morning and have learned that we are about a day away from a hurricane.  Yikes! In the meantime, now that I’m basking in good internet connectivity and wanted to go ahead and outline the winners from What Becca Wore.  I had a magnificent time at Hochanda and several upcoming collections sold out.   I’ll keep you up to date on availability – in the next month or so, many things are coming.

    There I also showed the new Spellbinders Glimmer Machine.  Please put this on your radar!  I’ll begin to show samples soon and you will love the effects you can get using delicate foil.  I’m not new to foil and started out with a Minc machine but this is so much better as it allows you to foil on many surfaces without a toner printer.  Get ready to get techniquey!!

    Also, while away I attended a mixed media retreat and in my playtime made this mixed media tag.  I fell in love with some of the applications I got to try and will be using them in the near future.  Yes, mixed media can still be elegant and it doesn’t have to totally obliterate the piece – the wonderful thing is that it’s up to the maker on how far to go.  I made a lot of things at the mixed media retreat – many were way outside of my comfort zone but I’m finding so much potential as I reel in the techniques in to fit my style.  These are MDF tags and I used a Gel Medium to attach the paper to the tag.  Using a stencil and stencil paste, added the raised script to the bottom of the tag as well as the swirl.  The lady is from a piece of designer paper.  I tore the edges of the paper and rouged up her cheeks for a more sultry look.  Lastly, I just happened to have one of my older quote stamps and it just felt like “Be who you are and be that well” fit the occasion.

    What Becca Wore Winners

    Here are the two winners, each picked from a pool of submissions who correctly guessed my attire on recent Hochanda shows.  First of all, thank you so much for the sweet words of encouragement and to those who watched.  Please note, because of the lateness of this notice, I will reach out to the winners by email.

    Suzzette G. Yandle – October 3rd Show
    Hettie Hogan          – October 4th Show


    Life is a little bit scattered for me right now and a little bit scary.  I’m exhausted.  I allowed myself to sit on the sofa and reflect for one day to let the events of the last week soak in.  As much as I can without all my “stuff”,  I’m embarking on a little craft therapy.  It feels good.  I have new things coming and ask that you please hang in there with me.  It has been very quiet here but the wheels of inspiration have been churning along all the while and I hope to share some of that very soon!

  • BARBARA FLANAGANOctober 18, 2018 - 10:25 am

    Hi Becca, GORGEOUS; I LOVE it!!!! It is so exciting to see a new slant on your beautiful designs! Mixed media, in your hands, are layers of beauty and intrigue….bring it on!!!ReplyCancel

  • Kristine VencelOctober 18, 2018 - 10:27 am

    Oh, Becca! What an ordeal for you to have to deal with! I am so sorry, I forgot you lived in FL. ? I saw many photos of devastated areas. They were mind boggling. But I truly just cannot imagine seeing your entire, or almost entire, community wiped away!!! I am thankful that your home is still standing, albeit with some damage, but sit sounds like it is liveable. Another adjustment …living without electricity and all the gadgets that connect to it. Sometimes I think God is trying to send us a very powerful message. As I sit here with my gadget in my hands and I am sending you a message on it….

    Don’t worry about us. We can deal with not hearing from you as scheduled much better than having to deal with what you have been dealt. I will pray for you, for strength and wisdom during this difficult period. And know that we are still here, and we will do what we can for you. If you need some help, please ask.

    I am happy that you enjoyed your visit to the UK, and I love your mixed media project! You did a wonderful job! Can’t wait to see what you do next, once your life returns to normal. ??????ReplyCancel

  • Beverly JordanOctober 18, 2018 - 10:48 am

    Am a Floridan and am in total understanding with empathy of what you are going through!! So sorry about all the devastation your area has suffered! Am in prayer and hope that you feel our love and support coming your way! God bless!
    On another note, loved the added dies that were shown on Hochanda. Am interested in the three that matched up with the Grand Cabinet but wasn’t able to find it on Spellbinders site. LMK if they are yet to come.

    I am so sorry for all you are going through. Hurricanes can be so horrible. I lived in Florida 40 years ago and when my home was destroyed I mad a major move to New Mexico and have not regretted it at all. I hope you are soon able to get your Home repaired and I am grateful you were not harmed yourself. I will keep you and your Family in my Prayers.ReplyCancel

  • Steph MOctober 18, 2018 - 11:00 am

    Oh Becca, how scary and unnerving that must have been, not knowing about your house but I’m so pleased that our Heavenly Father saw fit to allow your house to remain standing. I hope and pray that repairs won’t take too long and that you’ll be able to help others who weren’t quite so fortunate in some small way.ReplyCancel

  • SuzzieQOctober 18, 2018 - 11:15 am

    Oh, Becca, so pleased you still have a home and studio. So sorry you had to deal with and continue to deal with the effects of Hurricane Michael. Life does change in a heartbeat. If I were closer to you in miles, I would be there to help you clean up. I hate water damage. Seems all one can do is open the door and shovel one’s belonging out the door. Compounding the issue is not having the infrastruction one takes for granted day to day. Yes, I do like mixed media, especially using a stencil and texture paste but not too grungy. I am pleased you will be sharing more mixed media in your elegant style. I also like hot foiling. I see you have some fleur-de-lis in your dies and hot foil plates representing your French heritage. I am pleased to see that I am a winner for “What Becca Wore” for the Oct 3rd show. I enjoyed watching your successful shows on Hochanda. You are one awesome lady and designer! Please take care of yourself during this highly emotionally stressful time. God Bless You.
    Thanks for letting your blog followers know how you are. We care about you. Prayers and Love, SuzzetteReplyCancel

  • Pamela KellyOctober 18, 2018 - 11:18 am

    I have been very worried about you, Becca, so it is a relief to see this post. I checked the map when the hurricane went through and saw how close your town was. I am so sorry to learn that you were affected; but thankful that you were not physically hurt. It must be devastating, nonetheless, to go back and see the terrible conditions.
    I live in the Midwest – in a suburb of Chicago – so there’s probably not much I could do physically; but if there is ANYTHING I can do for you, (sharing dies [I probably have just about every die that Spellbinders has sold since the company originally developed.] providing any supplies that I have, etc.) please let me know. You have given me so much joy and inspiration over the years through the selfless sharing of your fabulous talents, I would be honored to give back a little.

  • Crafty CruiserOctober 18, 2018 - 11:31 am

    Oh my gosh Becca, what a nightmare you have been through. I’m so pleased that your house is still standing, albeit not undamaged. It must be terrible seeing your community destroyed but these things tend to bring people closer together and I am sure there will be plenty of support out there. I’m so glad you enjoyed your visit to the UK but it’s shame you had all that dashed with facing your ordeal on returning home. Keep your chin up girl – there are a lot of people rooting for you. Very best wishes

    Becca, please know that so many of us are thinking of you, and your neighbours, in this time of such devastation. Glad to hear that your home and studio survived the hurricane but so sad for all those who lost so much. Please take time to take care of you first, we will all still be here when you’re ready to come back. Sending prayers for your mental well being as you deal with all this. XoReplyCancel

  • P. MinnisOctober 18, 2018 - 11:46 am

    Becca I’ve been thinking about you and wondering why I hadn’t received a post. DUHHHHHHH! I knew you lived in Florida (as do I in the winter). But it never occurred to me during the hurricane that you would be affected!!

    I am so GREATFUL TO GOD for your safety and for sparing the complete destruction of your home. OUR GOD IS SO GREAT. Thank you Jesus for watching out for Becca. I can’t imagine not having her inspiration and beautiful creations that warm my heart and help me stay motivated to create.ReplyCancel

  • Suzie WestOctober 18, 2018 - 12:05 pm

    Becca, I can’t even imagine what you’ve been through except you must be exhausted and depressed. It’s so hard just seeing all the pictures of the devastation on the news. If you start a Go Fund Me account, please let us all know. I would be thrilled to be able to give something back to you after all you have shared with so many of us. I hope you will take it easy as things begin to sort out and try not to become too overwhelmed. Even though you are so lucky to have a home to return to, there’s so much ahead of you and your friends in that community. I’m so happy you’re alive! Suzie AND, I love your mixed media tag.ReplyCancel

  • Sandy ArtmanOctober 18, 2018 - 12:36 pm

    Our dear, Becca,
    You made my day with your post. I’ve thought about how vulnerable your craft is to the events you’ve weathered. The church I attend was close to being burned down by the Thomas Fire in California so I know, first hand, how life can change in a gust of wind. These events put one “up close & personal” with devastation & miracles and the amazing resiliency of the human spirit.
    I’ve got my new dies already and the Glimmer system is on my Wish List. It’s fascinating to think that we can now do, at home, what used to be expensive custom print jobs! And, I have one word for Mixed Media – YES! There are so many innovative products, like Seth Apter’s texturizing powders, which you’ve shared. I look forward to more inspiration & instruction.
    Feel free to share all you want so we can support you with our
    Love, Prayers and Blessings!ReplyCancel

    Praise God you are ok and able to put the pieces back together. Living in paradise isn’t always paradise when hurricanes have a different story for you. So thankful you have a home to repair and return to in time. Just be careful of false contractors taking advantage of you. They seem to flock to the people lowest on their luck. Take care, dear sister, and know God has you in the palm of His hand.ReplyCancel

  • Chelsea JohnsonOctober 18, 2018 - 2:32 pm

    WHEW!!!! So very thankful you are ok. I have been so concerned – I know there was no way for you to let us know how you were with all of the power and cell tower outages, so I just had to be patient and wait to hear how you are. Praising God you are ok and your family is ok. They say rebuilding will take several years, so I understand you will have a long road ahead of you before anything resembling “normalcy” returns to your life. You are in my prayers, dear one. Remember that.ReplyCancel

  • Beverly FuchsOctober 18, 2018 - 2:41 pm

    Hello Becca,

    So very glad to hear that you have weathered the storm and that you are safe and well, or as much as can be. Michael was such a devastating storm and life will never be the same for some people. Take care Becca.

    Oh Becca. Thankfully God was watching over you and has kept you safe. How awful, and with so much devastion it’s going to take time for everyone to re-establish. I didn’t know where in the USA you live. Hopefully you haven’t lost too much, and the damage can be fixed, but no doubt you will also be feeling upset for losses incurred by your neighbours and friends where you live. Love to all of you.

  • Sandra SmithOctober 18, 2018 - 11:23 pm

    My family lost everything in a flood back in 1972. 43 feet of water crested behind where I lived. The force broke open our front door and deposited part of someone else’s roof in our living room. Very little was salvageable so my heart breaks for so many who have lost so much. Our evacuation came suddenly in the middle of the night with helicopters hoovering and a loud speaker telling us to “GET OUT! GET OUT NOW! My daughter was 14 months old so I grabbed a diaper bag and left my purse behind. It’s an experience I will never forget but we were blessed with our safey when others died. I am praying for all those affected by these terrible storms. I’m so sorry you’ve had to experience this, Becca!

    I do love your tag and how you’ve made mixed media so elegant. I can’t wait to see your future creations. I’m a huge fan of foiling too!

I know we hadn’t heard from you in a while but I just thought it was because you were away & busy behind the scenes. I didn’t hear about hurricane Michael in the news in Australia. I’m so thankful you are safe. So sorry for everything you & others in your area went & are going through. Sending many prayers your way!

    Hi Becca no words come to mind to describe how sorry we are for the

    In your life …..
    Just wish there was some way to help you as you have done so much for all of
    us and inspired us to overcome life’s traumas , losses and hard times .
    I hope your craft friends and church friends and family look out for you and
    help you to deal with this one day at a time.
    You are so special and gifted with so much God given talent I am sure he
    will also give you strength to cope and deal with the immediate future .

    Love your mixed media tag we have had a mixed media artist over here

  • Barbara TranquillaOctober 19, 2018 - 6:44 am

    Hello Becca, So sorry you were caught up in the Michael crisis. My prayers are lifting you up during this upheaval. I lived through storm Andrew in ’92 and Michael was more devastating. It takes years to rebuild–clearing debris, getting supplies, and adjusting to changes takes its toll. But you will benefit in the long run with renewed appreciation for the beautiful people in your life, letting go of ‘stuff,’and depending upon God to see you through. You are a blessing to your fans, including me, and may blessings come your way in spite of this setback. BarbaraReplyCancel

    My dear Becca, I am so sorry for all you have had to endure. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I know in this day and time it is impossible to think someone might not know about all the damage caused by the hurricane season this year but I do not listen to the news and I watch very little t.v. or listen to the radio. I don’t work outside the home and we live a long way off from any neighbors. Our home took the brunt of hurricane Opal years ago and we had a huge tree fall on our home during a down pour of rain that did a lot of water damage through the house. It was a tough time to go through for us but with every trial we endure it gives us the opportunity to get closer to God and I know He uses these times to strengthen us in Him. This earth is just a short puff of smoke and we will soon move on to our Heavenly home where Jesus will hold us in His arms. Hang on and find peace my friend in Him. This too shall pass. All my love….
    May God bless you…. Denice : )ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca,

    I’m so sorry to read your dreadful news; I can’t begin to imagine how terrible the experience must have been. I hope you are able to come to terms with what has happened and can start to rebuild your life as soon as possible.

    I loved your shows on TV here in the U.K. and was so happy to see how popular everything was; not that there was any doubt with such beautiful products. Just received your Charming Snowflake die for my birthday and can’t wait to get playing.
