Done with scraps saved from a project I’ve been working on this one is all silver and black. (the reflection from the sun on the bottom page makes the silver circle look gold.) Throwing odds and ends together is quite fun when the results turn out as hip as this. And! YAY! My mini iron arrived today, the beeswax is calling me. /Bye! =)
Travel season is coming up. Make sure you have your travel journal supplies in order soon. =)I made this calendar from the idea I found on The Stamping Studio’s website. It’s really a quick project to do. The pages are small and lend themselves well to a lot of the scraps you’ll have lying around from other projects. They would also make a great monthly surprise gift for friends and family. They are the perfect size for your desk at work as well. I made the calendar part in MS Word using a table. Pick a fun font and print away. Super easy! Pick the colors of the season or the colors that make you happy and embellish away. For instructions on how to reassemble the CD case visit The Stamping Studio. She gives a good explanation. Here’s my fiberlicious calendar for June 08′.
The possibilities are endless! Share your ideas with me. =)
Cloud Nine. Chapter nine of the book I tear pages from. So off all the nine’s I could think of this was the most joyful. Nine little windows peering out with bluebirds of happiness and sunrise peppered skies. Happy Today! I have my hands full this week with cards that need to be made and a birthday present for my hubby that needs to be completed. It’s been a long ongoing project. His birthday is June 4, so after that I can share what I’ve been doing for him. Until then, mum’s the word! I have some birthday, father’s day, and graduation cards to make within the next few weeks as well, so I will be very busy. I’m working on a “fan” card for hubby’s mom today, and will have it posted asap. More later. =)
Done mostly with my Zig pen over a wash of watercolors. The black is striking against the pink and blue wash. I did a pink wash first then used a sparkle glaze and added the blue over the top of the dried glaze. The perfect way to keep your watercolors from running together. The petal part of the flower is actually an enlarged rubber stamp that I stamped in black and enlarged. I like how the area’s that weren’t inked well left white “polka dots.” If you have unusual ways to use rubber stamps please share. =) Hope to hear from you soon.
Create! Don’t be afraid to BE BOLD! =) Just the last day of the three-day-weekend. Messing with papers and paints. I’m ordering a few items on line as well. Finally getting my Twinkling H2Os and a mini iron for working with beeswax.
Here’s the Shamrock picture I was working on.
I found this on line and thought I’d share it as well –
In Irish tradition the Shamrock or Three-leaf-clover represents the Holy Trinity: one leaf for the Father, one for the Son and one for the Holy Spirit. When a Shamrock is found with a fourth leaf, it represents God’s Grace.
Vellum over a failed crackle attempt. =P You never know till you try. Vellum flowers with eyelets, sponge inked with ink pads. We went to Joann’s yesterday after our weekly shopping trip to Fred Meyers. I got some paint glaze, some silver gleams paint, a few other painting items, some gorgeous glitter paper and some and shimmery embroidery threads. Next on my wish list is Twinkling H2Os. I have ten days left in my journal and then I move on to the next one. After the long weekend I’ll finish up my Maid Marian painting I’m working on and post it. I just finished a four-leaf-clover picture that I’ll post soon.
My dad brought me a box full of wood to paint on. It’s all different sizes. He even brought me some bark to soak and shape. I’ll have to think of something creative for that. Mom has a wood burning tool that I don’t think she’s using, so I’ll be asking to borrow that I think. =) My mom paints on wood, she took painting classes after all of us left the nest and she’s very good at what she does. I’ll post something she’s painted for me soon, and my Dad does wood working and he’s got tons of talent as well. (I also have an endless supply of wood so that works too!) Enjoy your long weekend!
New paper from Fred Meyers last night! I added mirror to this page for whimsy. I think I will put a mirror in all my journals. It’s an easy way to check to see if you have paint all over your face. =) Going back to Freddies today for groceries, I’ll peek in to see what other goodies I can slip into the shopping cart.
Happy Friday Bloggers. =) I used a napkin for the background of this entry and added the love stamps and torn cigar notebook paper for the written entry. Love is an amazing thing. Never let go of that. Tonight hubby is taking me to Mexican so I don’t have to cook! YAY! But I still have laundry to finish so I must go. I just wanted to share some LOVE with you today.
Inspired by the song Far Far by Yael Naim who has the most beautiful voice. Check her out on Youtube or IMEEM
I’ve finished a few smaller projects I’ve been tinkering with. The bee box just needs a coat of beeswax but I thought I’d get it posted anyway.
This butterfly is a simple watercolor with a few embellishments on a small piece of thick watercolor paper bordered with silver metallic tape. This was a fun and simple project. Small pieces of paper intrigue me. I know they have a little story to tell. =)

This was a happy accident. I was playing with my opaque writer and a glob of paint came out, so I went with it. The white streaks made me think of a dandelion going to seed. I printed some pictures of dandelions off the net and used my flower punch to cut them out. Google dandelion, you’ll find it’s far more than just a common weed. I wonder if I have any growing outside. =)
