Adding a new dimension to paper crafting.

Picture the Sound 9

I was thrilled when I was asked by Jenn Furr from Picture That Sound to do a little creating with some of her wonderful product. Picture that Sound adds a whole new dimension to paper crafts and I love it! I enjoy bringing memories and colors together onto a project and with Picture That Sound your can add sound to your project! How cool is that!!!

I had a second board so I decided to create a mixed media canvas with it. Using super duper sticky Helmar 450 Quick Dry.. I glued the board onto a canvas after my daughter Ashley had recorded one of her piano pieces onto it. Jessica did the music for my Halloween board. I then went to work with Tattered Angels, acrylics, and Shimmerz.A color party!

I then covered over the board with a sheet of Bazzill Basics Paper; Antique Dictionary Paper with Mod Podge . Be careful NOT to get Mod Podge into the speaker hole and the on/off button. Lightly mark on the paper where your on/off button is for reference.

I had fun using Webster's Pages gorgeous Designer Trims to go around the edge of the board & some Dew Drops from The Robin Nest for a little bling!

Picture the Sound 4I pulled out my Art & Graphic Twin pens from Kuretake to do the writing.

And… I had fun creating with some of my paper, Susan K. Weckesser Inc. and co-brand Unity Stamps.

And here is my finished project that I can not only look at but also listen too. How cool is that! I love it! I have attached a short video so you can hear what my daughters created on the piano for me to go with my artwork! 

Using Picture that Sound product for more memories…


I hope you have a super wonderful day!

Have Some Spring Fun with Kuretake.

Live Each Day to the Fullest doodle

The Kuretake design team was challenged to create something with the theme "spring bloom."  I was SO thrilled by this challenge because I ADORE spring! The new life that begins to come up all around us and all the colors that blesses the earth. It is AWESOME!!!

So I took out a mix of Kuretake products and had some  fun creating! I used ZIG Memory Writers, ZIG Art & Graphic, ZIG Writer chalk pastel colours, and ZIG Transparent Watercolor Paints. Then to make the work pop, I outlined it all with the ZIG millennium pen.

Let your soul Grow Poppy final pic

For my whimsical poppy, I had fun using Kuretake's ZIG Pearlescent Watercolors & ZIG Art & Graphic.

  I love using the ZIG WATER COLOUR SYSTEM BRUSH20 with most of my work. It is so practical and easy to use! ZIG Water Colour System BrusH20
