Clean Craft Room! Yeah!

Took me 6 hours of crawling, bending, digging, rearranging....but it's done. I hauled out only one bag of trash (I thought it would be more?), gave away one small bag of stuff & rearranged & labeled what was left.

What did I end up with? I can't find anything!! LOL

Will take me a few days to be able to lay my fingers on the items I want to use immediately.  That's OK. My husband is so proud of me.  Isn't that what we live for? LOL

I wanted a clean surface for the new mini album I'm creating.  A Baby Girl themed mini. Because....I'm going to be a granny in January!  Laura Denison's napkin fold design is my inspiration.  I've got the pages all assembled & attached, the front cover is done.
Working on the photo tags now...will post pics when done. 

Will take at least a week cause I'm leaving today for a weekend trip to Kure Beach.  Taking my sketch pad & colored pencils with me AND my camera.  Will get lots of idea's & pictures to make new creations with.

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!

Christmas Canister-Recycled with Deco Art

I had a small coffee canister and immediately knew I had to alter it! Does that happen to you? I used some new products from Deco Arts. Their Metallic Wax Finish covered the slick surface of the canister. See the tutorial at the end of the post. Want to get in on a challenge with some prizes?? Check it out at Party Time Tuesdays!
**I tried several adhesives in order to glue down embellishments on this wax product. E6000 is the only one that I finally got to work.
