Tea for Two

image

    Hello! Here is my project for I Am Roses this month. I used a lot of random leftover flowers. Some were already sprayed so I gave everything a good coat of gesso before using my chosen colored sprays.

   My image is of a vintage cutie having tea with her dollie. I layered a few bits of paper around the image before adding my flowers.

      I plan on using is door decor. Thank you for your lovely comments as of late. I always love hearing from you!

    A last minute ornament using stamps from Artistic Outpost. I used the Chalkboard Christmas plate for the snowman and the background. I layers some chipboard pieces, a diecut frame and lots of flowers. I added a little glitter. Who doesn’t love sparkle on their tree?

     My friend gave me some small vintage Christmas balls so I added them to the bottom with some baker’s twine.

   Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments. I will be working my way around to your blogs this week. Life gets crazy before Christmas, but I am sure you all know that. Happy Weekend!

      Welcome to our August blog hop for Artistic Outpost. I used the Vintage Halloween stamp plate to make my wall hanging.

image

      I cut two pieces of chipboard and covered them with Webster’s Pages Halloween paper. I then used a gesso wash, a stencil and some molding paste. I used Distress Paints in the background to highlight the texture.

image

    I used some halloween ephemera in back of my stamped image. I layered a fence die cut with Stickles over my little girl. I am loving those fabric flowers.

image

    The bottom has green lace and Webster’s rose trim. The flowers have been sprayed and stickled.

     One thing that has been on my to-do list is this Prima Ustream Show. I love the style of the artist that  presents this class. It was the perfect mojo- booster. Prima has a lot of awesome classes all recorded in YouTube. Since I do not own a lot of Prima products I just improvise and use whatever I have in my craft room.

image

     I forget that there are so many free classes available. For me it is just taking the time to sit down and play along as I watch.

    Well, I am off to get food for my tribe. Our power is still out from the terrible lightning storms we had last night here in New York. PB&J is quickly becoming my best friend.

    Today is the day I get to share my e-book project for Pink Persimmon. I will just share the photos. For the tutorial on this project you will have to go to the Website and sign up for the free newsletter. You will then be able to download the ebook with this tutorial plus all the tutorials for the Christmas projects by the creative team.
    So, I started out with this tool box I saved from the trash bin. My boys were done playing with it so I thought it would be perfect for altering. Here is the front view.

    Happy Thursday and Welcome! Play along with our Blog hop and you could win this featured stamp. Itsn’t it adorable?!! Love how it ties in perfectly with the vintage theme.
    I made a shadow box door hanger from an old Bible box. I started out by gessoing and then painting a coat of light blue. I covered the inside bottom and edges with some lightweight, tightly woven fabric which has been backed with paper. I then painted and distress embossed some corrigated cardboard and grungeboard flourishes for more texture. Mulberry paper and a gold sheer fabric have also been worked into the background.

image

   I made a few of the flowers and sprayed the the rest with coordinating vintage colors. The leaves have been die cut using the same textured fabric as on the edges. The main image has been stamped, distressed and covered in rock candy crackle paint. The outer edges have been stamped and distressed with brown paint. I used a die cut decorative border around the outside so the box isn’t a plain rectangle.

Hello everyone!
Thank you for stopping by this Thursday. This months theme over at Red Rubber Designs is Fall. Today I have a fall door hanger that features the stamp set ‘Every Leaf’. I used RRD paper for my background and flowers. I layered the leaves under the flowers to create depth.

image

  Each blog on the RRD hop (except the Red Rubber Designs Blog) has one word that will complete a phrase somewhere in their blog hop post. Once you find all six words (that’s a hint!) put them together to form a phrase. You may have to rearrange them a little bit!

Note: The word you need from each blog will be obvious if you read carefully…. it looks just a little different from the rest of the letters!

Once you figure it out, email the phrase to contest@RedRubberDesigns.com and be sure to put your name and email address in the email with the phrase. Every correct answer will be entered into a drawing for the featured stamp set – “Every Leaf” – and one winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!

Contest ends Sunday, July 8th at Midnight (US-CDT).
