Craft Studio COMPLETE!


My craft studio is finished!!
Here is my hardwood floor that was under the carpet!
My husband sanded and refinished them. They are fabulous!

 I have a metal rack on the right wall for punches.  A towel rack in front of me for punches. Under my desk is a tub on rollers that holds 12x12 paper.  My desk is made with 2 cabinets with drawers and a recycled kitchen counter top. 
 My upper shelf holds tubs with flowers, button, pearls and a flower pot with all my scissors.
Here's a recycled desk that has a rubber maid 3 drawer unit under it. Housing my ribbon & adhesive. On the left side is a recycled microwave cart.  Embellishments on the top shelf and albums on the bottom.  My paper cutter, bigshot, printer & cricut are handy.

I started organizing my scraps in the 6 drawers on the top shelving. From top to bottom drawer: white/tan, black/brown, pattern paper, pink/red/orange, yellow/green, blue/purple.  I saw this somewhere on a blog & thought maybe I'd use mine more if they were organized a little better.
 Here is my recycled wardrobe. My husband took the front off of it and put shelves in it.  We screwed another wire rack on the side for some of my stamp sets.
 Your not going to believe it-but there is also a recycled cabinet on TOP of the wardrobe. We took the legs off & carefully shoved it up there!

Talk about storage! Oh My!  Since I recycle a lot of items, A lot of the "stuff" behind the closed doors is old files, boxes, frames, etc.  Not very glamourous I'm afraid.  But I do get a LOT done in here.
I just love the new layout.  I even have a tiny big of space left for a new sewing machine.

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!!!
