Enjoying some 'Girly Dots'!

yes

I LUV playing with Samantha Walker & Unity Stamp Company's stamp sets. I really enjoy the whimsical feel of the Girly Dot set that I played around with on some canvas pages. After stamping on my image I used Tattered Angels to blend and color in the image. I used acrylic paint to accent up the corners. And how fun is it to accent the page with some organza ribbon roses from Maya Road and wonderful beads!

Doodling up a quick Father day Gift with the Kiddos!

father day girt 6

So for a quick and easy Father's Day gift, I got out some of my 'Live in Color' paper collection from Susiebee Studios Inc.  and some of my ZIG Memory Writers from Kuretake and I made some nifty 'coupons' to give to Dad.

By folding a piece of Beautiful Daydreams paper and lacing it up I was able to make a carrying case or envelope for the coupons. To keep the coupons from falling out I laced the edges together using craft cording. I had fun distressing the envelope by using Tattered Angel glimmer mist over a Tim Holtz mask.

For my lettering I used ZIG Painty~Gold&Silver which is an oil based pen and covers beautifully on most surfaces!

Fabric, Fabric , Fabric

20110615_31

My new summer quilt still a work in progress!

Besides my paper obsession, I adore fabric! I love all types of fabric, but I have to admit the my favourite is simple cottons that are all decked out in all kinds of lovely whimsical patterns! I LOVE the wonderful colors that fabric come in today! How fun is it to sew up a lovely quite or place mat with some of the beautiful palettes that are available!!!

laugh often picture yes 1

!Veggie quilt yesInstead of throwing away my fabric scraps, I love to make them into gifts to give to people. Fabric can put a smile on anyone's  face. You can find so many different fun quilt patterns and designs in the library or on the internet.

20110615_34 So this past month, because I have been busy with kiddos, hubbies, deadlines, work, house, and everything else live throws me, I have found it extremely relaxing to pull out my sewing and have a little 'me' time just to unwind and relax! Plus, I got excited because my own fabric samples that I designed came in that I get to play with next month.

So take a little time for yourself and play with some wonderfully, whimsical color fabric. Trust me…. you will be smiling!

Have a AWESOME day!

Antique Mirror Makeover

antique mirrorr makeover 2I found this lovely old antique mirror for sale at a really good price, so I decided to buy it and recycled it. First I took some painter's tape and cardstock and I covered over the mirror.antique mirrorr makeover 1

         I then gave it a lovely coat of acrylic paint. I used Gecko, and Turquoise and mixed in splashes of Antique White. With my Gecko I used a Color Float so I could play with the color and decide where I wanted to put it. I also applied a crackle medium.antique mirrorr makeover 4

After the crackle medium  was dry I put some Tim Holtz Distress Inks from Ranger on a cloth and rubbed it gently into the distressed cracked to complete my age look.

I then glue on some beach glass. I LOVE beach glass!antique mirrorr makeover 6
