I have two more projects this week so stay tuned.

Hello! I made this stamp holder some time ago but have not had the opportunity to share before now. I used a set of Lynne Perrella stamps I won from one of the challenges over at PaperArtsy. My background is chipboard. I used molding paste and a stencil to create texture and then dripped paint.
I added a die cut and a few flowers on the front cover to embellish.
Here is one of the inside covers.
The back cover. Thanks for stopping by and for all your encouraging comments.
This month’s post for I Am Roses is a canvas I made of my son and his bus driver. She is really missing him now that we moved but I made this canvas for her to remember Winston. Can you believe I made this after my craft room was all packed in boxes? All I had available was a few items at the top of the box. It was a fun challenge to craft with just a few items I had on hand.
I hope you are enjoying your summer. I am loving all the time with my family!
It has been a while since my last post. We are all moved into our townhouse and mostly unpacked so I am hoping to start crafting again and posting more consistently.
This post is a bit late but I have an excuse…I have been busy. My tin was recently published in the June issue of Somerset Studio Gallery. I am so excited as this was my first time being published!
It is moving week for us so I am sharing a canvas I made some time ago using a picture of my Grandmother.
I am not going to elaborate on how I did it because of time so the pictures will have to speak for themselves.
Thank you for looking!
This months challenge over at I Am Roses Challenge Blog is altered frames. I got this frame from the dollar store. It was a mahogany color but I wanted it to be a patina finish.
I painted the frame with Fresco Finish paints and used a bunch of beautiful flowers from I Am Roses. Hop on over to the blog and check out all the projects by the design team.
Good Morning! I have another page to share in my new ‘Expeditions’ art journal. I bought a collage sheet of siblings several years ago and I think I might finally be able to put it to use. I love this image. My background is book paper over a brown paper bag. Lots of gesso, paints and stamping along with layers of ephemera finish off the page. I was able to use up a lot of scraps! Wo-hoo!
I made this mail art using some of my favorite envelopes. They better be a favorite because I bought them in bulk. I used my Artistic Outpost stamps from the Flapper Fashion plate.
The beautiful flowers are from I Am Roses. I used a few sunflowers, white gardenia petals and mini roses.
I added lots of paint, gesso and layers of paper to add more interest. And of course, I love dripped paint.
Here is my completed cover! This is my first art journal and I know it won’t be my last. I have already started pages in my next journal. I am just trying to come up with a name for it.
Here is the last layout in my a Past Vibes Art Journal. I loved working in it.
I’ll be back soon to share the journals completed cover.
Have a great Friday!
More layouts in my Vintage Vibes Art Journal. I used some of my new Lynne Perrella stamps from PaperArtsy. Well, they were new months ago but I finally got around to playing.
My background was made using a Tim Holtz technique. I went over it in places with gesso and a brick stamp. Flowers are from I Am Roses. I used lots of bright colors in a mix of paint and sprays.
Can’t believe that the week is almost over. Enjoy!
Happy Saturday! I have a project for I Am Roses to share. I had a lot of fun with all the new flowers in my package. This photo is of my youngest and his favorite stuffed bunny, Henley. They go everywhere together and have seen a lot of interesting times.
I added flowers to the side of the canvas to add some extra depth. Here is another view.
And here is another front view.
I appreciate your visit. Hope you have time to craft this weekend!
Welcome! It is time again for another challenge over at the I Am Roses challenge Blog. I chose the colors green and white for the theme of my project. My image is by Lynne Perrella. I made this flip book to be my new art journal.
I can’t wait to start using it. I love unusual sized books. Here is the back of the book.
Another Lynne Perrella image on the back.
Thanks for looking. Check out the Challenge and play along.
