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!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
