One of my favorites so far. I love the sting of button! This Spam can has sew much flair! Great for sewing needs or embroidery supplies. Even a nice catch-all for needle felting. Such fun. I used collage paper with a sewing theme and topped it off with some ripped and torn crumpled and rumpled pattern pieces. Using jute, I strung some buttons and tied it around the can. I topped it off with white nail polish around the rim and a length of blue and white ribbon that looks like stitching.
I love me some Spam cans! They are a very creative canvas for fun and function expression of yourself. Eat, Play, Create, today!
Have an awesome weekend. I’ll be tucked in my studio creating and nestling on our new sofa (photos coming soon) reading the last book in The Hunger Games series!
When getting ready to cook a few weeks back I poured some oil into my cast iron frying pan and ended up with some creative curly-Qs. Naturally I grabbed my camera to capture the moment. What do YOU see when you look at this?
Having fun with houses! This is actually a canvas frame I’ve had in a craft drawer for- nearly… -ever! I slapped my favorite shabby chic text pages on and started painting and adding bling and other various nom nom. The tissue paper flowers are handmade from crepe paper and accented with leaves from Recollections. I treated myself a few weekends ago to some Michaels lovin. I received a gift card from Christmas that I cashed in on a few of these wonderful floral embellishments. They are super yummy!
I’m going to be posting all of these treasures on Etsy soon. I’ve too busy today creating spoons. Yep! I thought I’d stir things up a bit this year and expand my creative juices to whatever caught my fancy. I’ll share a bite full as soon as thing are all cooked up! Can’t have any half-baked ideas hitting the net just yet. =)
Today is buying new sofa day… so I need to head out of here and clean up a bit before it’s time for shopping. I’ll tell you more about that later… You just gotta LOVE interior decorating!
Ta-Ta for now!
This little dream house is made from wood and covered with text pages. I pretty much finger painted this with blues and greens. I used Black Lava medium by Liquitex for the black speckles and made a flower from yellow tissue paper. I wrapped the house with funky fibers and topped it off with some beads and my label makers “dream” sticker. It’s a really fun accent piece that truly pops with color.
Here’s another dream home made from the middle of a TP roll. I made a box and used extra strips of TP cardboard for the roof. Covering the creation with text pages and tissue papers. Again I made some lavender crepe paper flowers and added green beads to the centers. I used my new Martha Stewart craft punch to make the leaves and added and old earring with the back cut off to the base of the inside to add some bling to this little cottage. I just goes to show you that your really can make a silk purse out of a sows ear!
What’s on your easel?
God Bless America. I was inspired to create these flag pins/tags while watching one of the …many… GOP debates that have been occurring over the past many months. They are not yet done but you get the idea so far to the design that I’ve chosen… the one star is to represent One Nation under God. … I will be adding a hanger to string a chain through and also I’ll be adding a blue safety pin with them so you can pin the pendant on the … “donkey: … HAH! I guess that’s political enough.
I’m picking up the glue today to finish these lil gems and I’ll share them so you can see my vision once they are completed… do check back soon… I have some accidental art that I created over last weekend that I think you’ll find amusing.
Have awe inspired TGIF!
I went completely whimsical on this. I tried to be a tad more serious with this but I think I heard God say… “lighten up”… so I did. With googly eyes and extinct birds and all! This smile provoking painting is a joy to me and will have a partner coming soon with Noah making an appearance.
Here are a few close ups of the fun I had.
Now you “Noah” was I’ve been up to.. what have you been doing?
