Mini Art Book

Hi everyone, here today with my first designer post for Mixed Media Warriors challenge, my project is inspired by this month's "Spring" mood board. I created a mini chipboard book that I plan to use for small little works of art. I found this book at Michaels that came with metal rings for the binding, I decided to switch it out with a ball chain instead, it can easily hook and unhook when I need to pull out a page.

Looking forward to playing with it!

Please visit Mixed Media Warriors for more inspiration and hope you feel inspired to join us!

Life is a gift...Celebrate

Hi everyone, hope you're all having a great start of the new year. It's been many years since I've created a layout, so what better way to start off my year than to create a "mixed media" layout. I love to follow many challenge blogs, as they can give so much inspiration and many creative ideas on what one can do to start off the next project. I have always worked best when challenged, be it home life, work life or just creating in general, for me challenges are a great way to expand my creativity in many diverse ways.

I absolutely love the freshness of a new snowfall, the scenery is always so beautiful. While going for a nice walk around the neighborhood, I couldn't help but stop to take this lovely photo of my husband and our most adorable pup "Dallas". What better way to celebrate...than to celebrate life with those we love and the wondrous beauty of Mother Nature.

Enjoy...

Snowflake Tag/Ornament and Giveaway

Hello everyone, time for a project share and a double giveaway. I had mentioned that I wanted to do a giveaway before Christmas, cutting it close but here we are! :)  In the meantime, I am happy to say I have since reached just over 1000 subscribers on YouTube, so what better way to celebrate than to do a double giveaway. To enter the giveaway, all you will need is to be a subscriber of my YouTube channel, like and comment...the winners will be chosen at random and announced sometime in late January, good luck!!!

Meanwhile, I've been mad crazy trying to get so much done before heading out to visit my oldest son, who is so hosting his first Christmas Dinner, so happy and excited to say the least...the fact the I had time to make this post was a miracle, lol. With that said, he wants to start a little tradition, for every year he hosts a Christmas dinner, he wants me to make him a new ornament for his tree. Such a wonderful idea.

Well I thought it would be nice to add a bit of a twist. I wanted to make it more personal by creating the ornament as a chipboard tag first and attaching it to his gift with our sentiment on the back, which in turn he can use the tag as the ornament for his tree. The chipboard "mdf" is from a small circle mini album that I haven't used in forever... it's light, yet sturdy enough to last through time.

Enjoy...

Moments in Time

Hi all, happy to announce that once again I am a guest designer for Frilly and Funkie, as always, it is such a pleasure. This weeks challenge is hosted by Pamellia and the challenge theme is "Things with Wings"... create any vintage or shabby chic project with something that has wings. It can be butterflies, bees, dragonflies, whatever you can think of.

For my project I decided to do a shabby chic tag using purple, which is one of my least favorite colors to work with, but I just fell in love with the harlequin paper. For the wings challenge I chose to go with birds, I used the larger tag (#10) which would accommodate the clock, flowers and 2 birds that I knew I wanted to use. For the clock piece I used Scrapiniec decorative chipboard, I really love how a lot of their chipboard pieces are layered.

Be sure to stop by the Frilly and Funkie blog, join in on the challenge and check out some awesome inspiration from the design team.

Enjoy...



Have a great day!!!

Inspirational Butterfly Tag

Hi everyone, hope you're all having an enjoyable summer. Today I am happy to announce the I am the guest designer for Berry71Bleu's Challenge Blog... it's truly an honor, thank you Denise and the team for having me on.

This month's mood board is "Summer Hideaway" which is posted below...and my take on this month's challenge is more of a last hoorah to Summer. Change is near with the new fall season just ahead and with summer coming to an end, I thought it perfect to create an inspirational tag using some beautiful butterflies and perfect wording from Dylusions stamps... "what appears to be the end is usually the start of a new beginning".

Love these colors, by far my favorite color combo, with my favorite color yellow being at the top... I can't tell you how thrilled I was to use them in my tag. I have a video tutorial with a complete supply list posted below. Be sure to stop by Berry71Bleu's Challenge Blog for much more inspiration and have some fun by joining in on the challenge too!

Enjoy...

Abigail's Baby Album

Hello creative friends, I would love to share with you my latest project...a baby album for niece Stacey and her newborn daughter Abigail. I will only be sharing the outside of the album as there is just way too much on the inside for me to post and I didn't get a chance to do a "project share" video... the album itself is from Heartfelt Creations, I bought all the inserts for it and magnets to keep all of the inserts secure.

For the front/back covers and spine, I used a wide range of flowers, papers, metal embellishments, chipboard, lace, pearls, bling, embossing powders, paint and more. My most favorite part of this album is the book closure...the heart locket and the key behind it which says dream. Lots of love went into this album and I know she will enjoy it for years to come.

Enjoy...




Love this heart locket,
it has a little glass window so you can see what's inside. 




Have a wonderful day!!!

Mixed Media Art Prompt Box 2

Hi everyone, in a previous post I shared with you my first Art Prompt Box. Well today I want to share with you my 2nd Art Prompt Box. This box is quite different from the first one, which is what I wanted. I was in the mood for something that was airy and light with a touch of vintage shabby chic.

I had lots of fun creating this and now I'm ready to start challenging myself to create some projects  using the prompts. As I get new products, I need to remember to add them to my list. Hope you've been inspired and are having fun creating your own prompt boxes... supplies listed below! :)

Enjoy...





Supplies used...
Wooden box and misc. metals, chipboard and old paintbrushes etc.
Gesso, Modeling paste for stencils and Crackle paste for the drawer.
Prima Shabby Chic door locks.
Tim Holtz Alpha Parts, Ornate plates and Black Soot Ink.
Crafter's workshop stencils: "Mini Moving Vines" and "Mini art Is".
Prima and Petaloo Flowers.
Heartfelt Creations "Everyday Heroes" paper collection for box sides and drawer.
Sprays: Glimmer Mist "Patina and Dylusions "Calypso Teal" watered down.



I added several layers between gesso and sprays, lastly using a round, but flat bottom sponge brush with gesso for some texture. To finish, I used the black soot ink  for shadowing.



Have fun... be creative!!!

Mixed Media Art Prompt Box

Hi everyone, so happy to be back after a well needed break, I'm totally rested and so ready to get back to creating! For my first project of the year, I decided to start off with an Art Prompt Box. I found this idea on YouTube from Rach0113, click here for her video.

This is the first of 2 boxes. I'm making a list of ALL of my supplies/tools/styles/etc. that are in my studio, I will then print and cut them out. I will add all of my supplies etc. to the first box, when I'm ready to create, I will pull out 3 and create a project. When I'm done I will put it into the 2nd box, the idea is to go through your 1st box. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say there are many things that were bought throughout time that haven't been opened.

I plan to do another video, once my 2nd box is complete. I will then show you the process and start by pulling out 3 things that I will have to use to create. There's not limit on what you use, but you must use those 3. Other than my DT posts for Cardz TV, all of my other projects will be based from the prompt box.


I love this idea and I hope you all get inspired to Create Amazing Art!!!

Enjoy...



I did make a video showing the process, unfortunately it cut out before I could finish...I'm hoping you will get the idea. 

 



 Have a great day!!!

Lighted Steampunk Altered Clock

Hi everyone, today I want to share a project with you that I have been working on, between design teams and life in general, it's taken quite sometime to complete, but as of last night I am finally done... yay!!! I am so, so happy with the way it turned out. I put a lot of work into it, it actually lights up and shows the layers of gears that I put between the clock face and the back of the clock. 

It just so happens that I had seen a post for the June challenge at Creative Embellishments, which is posted below with an inspiration photo, which shows a clock face, so I thought why not join in on it. Most of the gears, the clock face and wings are from Creative Embellishments, the clock is from Tim Holtz and the steampunk hat was originally a velvet leprechaun hat that I altered.

All of the other embellishments you can get at any craft store, including the steampunk airship. I also used various mediums for texture and color. The miniature lights I bought at AC Moore by the flower section. All in all, the entire project was so much fun to work on, but I couldn't be happier to finally have it complete.

Enjoy...

  For the June challenge please be inspired by at least one element from the picture below (let us know what it was in your blog post) and for the twist add something with wings to your project.



Have a great day!!!
