L is for my Love of Art!


Hello Everyone!

Today I wanted to take a moment ad share a project that I created using lots of fun Prima Products but totally inspired by May's Challenge over at the Words& Paintery Challenge Blog.

They are currently having a Design Team call and I would love it if they would consider my submission in their search.... Wish me luck :)

First lets take a look at May's Mood Board:


Now Lets look at my Altered Project..

I found this L at Michael's when I I picked up my Rust Paste so I figured why not....


Products Used: Prima Pattern Paper, Color Bloom, Heavy Gesso, Gel Medium, Art Stones, Textured Paste, Rust Paste Set, Crackle Paint, IOD Mould, Wax and Metal Trinkets. Misc. Buttons and bits. And TONS of Finniabair Inspiration and direction! 


I started by decoupaging a bit of pattern paper to my L. Next I layered lots of trinkets to build my clusters.


I added a bit of crackle paste for a bit of added texture...


Next I covered all the "Gel Clumps" and "Blank Areas" with  Art Stones.


Finally it was time for color!


To bring everything togther I added a light coat of Gesso.


To finish off my project I added a touch of Finnabair's Wax....


I really love the way the clusters turned out.


Thank you so Much for stopping by!
 I hope I have inspired you in some way :)

Daddy's Gargoyle


Hello Everyone!

Today I wanted to share a layout I created the other night. I was going through pictures and I  decided that  I just had to scrap this one....

 Why on earth would I scrap this picture?? 

Well let me explain, this is a picture of my dad's gargoyle. Strange right??... Yes I totally agree but it's one of the few things that I have that was his and it totally reminds me of him.

I took  this picture on his birthday last year. It really was a hard day but this strange (and a bit scary) looking guy made me feel a bit better.

Anyhow I had a lot of fun making this layout and I had hoped to share the video with you... but there was a bit of technical issues and sadly it was deleted....


Products Used: 7 Dots Studio Fortune Teller Patter Paper and Stickers. Prima/Finnabair- Paint,  Art Stones Glass Beads, Flowers and Metal Trinkets and other embellishments. Misc. Chipboard, Twine, Buttons.
A few details just because...

As for me I did something a bit different this month and it was fun! 

Plus my kiddos got a sweet little turtle necklace out of it.



I just love this months new release but my favorite is the Swirl Turtle!

While I was cleaning my craft room I found a pack of Shrinky Dinks. 

So I thought I would put them to use :)


I started by stamping my Swirl Turtle with Staz On Ink.


Next I added a bit of color with my stash of colored pencils.


And after they were baked, they were the perfect size 

for a necklace so I added a bit of beads.


And there you have it easy peasy and fun too!
