Bachelorette Buttons

Bobbins2

I was partially finished with my buttons collage when I thought the flowers would need to pop more from a distance so I added some black lava, some of Martha Stewarts beadz, and some gold foiling.

Now I’m much happier with it. I’m loving the colors and the shabbiness. It’s the perfect girly accents to add to my gallery wall.

Today I’m playing with a board I’ve had stashed in my art supply closet for years…

My background so far consists of vintage text pages, glimmer mist in Viva Pink, and torn and crumpled decorative paper napkins in pale turquoise print. LOVE this! I’m going circles on this piece. More tomorrow on the progress of this super fun painting.

SpiritSoap

While washing my hands this morning getting ready for another coat of lilac polish I noticed the shape of the soap took on a ghostly appearance. The creative side of me just couldn’t miss the opportunity to add some googly eyes and a post it note with BOO written on it for the next person in line for the bathroom. I thought I’d share my sudsy spirit with you today.

LacyLilac

Mission accomplished! Sally Hanson’s Lacy Lilac nail polish is perfect for spring and summer and a statement polish for me for the lavender color which represents Lupus Awareness Month.

Today I’m finishing up my sewing collage and starting on this…..

BobbinBlooms

I made this garland of buttons, beads, and bobbins for the painting I’m currently working on but it just didn’t fit in the way I wanted it to so I decided to make a special piece just for this band of bling. What better things to do this time of year than to create gardens… indoors and out!

Since the sun has taken a certain dislike to me I’ll make my garden indoors for now. I’ll share me blooms with you as they grow.

Paper, Scissors, Cloth

I used gorgeous fabric for this ATC. The texture is scrumptious. The backing is a fiber “looking” paper in an awesome berry color that’s perfect for fall. I glued the fabric onto the body and but it out, then I sponged the edges with maroon and on the back, I used both maroon and green. The embellishments are washers from the hardware store that I used alcohol inks on and wrapped with green hemp cord. Fun, simple, and downright gorgeous. I’m loving the autumn colors.

I took care of business today by getting my yearly mammy-gram out of the way. As a reward I was gifted these pretty pinkies!

The cookie is because it’s BCA month… and the beads and applique are for doing the right thing and getting it done. Each year the radiology department I go to gives out “flair” for doing your dos. It’s incentive and encouragement for those who need a nudge. I’m now wondering what I’ll be making with the bling!

Get the girls taken care of ladies! God Bless till tomorrow and my final entry in my BCA Month series.

Blue Bloomers

BlueBloomers

Happy Friday and Happy Day 12 of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Today’s card is called Blue Bloomers. I thought fall was the perfect time for blues/greens/browns. Going from a bright and beautiful world to on muted with browns and golden oranges. This year however, here in the Pacific Northwest our summer was dry and crunchy.Wilted rose  The roadsides are wheat colored from dried out grass. It reminds me of summers at Gammas’ in South Oregon when I was a little girl.

I’m looking forward to some rain Storm cloud to regenerate our NW greens! I miss the moisture in the air… and the pollen being tamed! Allergies this year have me sneezing and rubbing my eyes double time. I’ll be happy when this too passes!

Come back tomorrow for entry number 13 in my double DD series! I’m loving the challenges I face each day with this month long series.

Peace-out for now!

Check Mate
I’ve had this sitting on my desk half finished for well over a week. Today it called to me. I had planned to use black, white, & red. But before I started in with the red I set it aside and worked on some ATCs. I looked up and there was a bottle of turquoise paint sitting right next to it and it hit me. I HAD to use it, and I’m very happy I did. It’s got pizazz! I used my usual plethora of paints and pretties while creating this mini 4×4″ eye candy. I had planned to play with my bee drawing today but this hollered at me and I think the bee will bee-gin tomorrow. The weather is sweltering hot so we aimed the air conditioner to where we’re sitting so it makes it nice and cool to create and hubs can game online with a cool breeze at his back. That about wraps it up of now, I have another mini 4×4 that pestered me for attention so I’m playing her some overdue TLC and THEN the bee! Let the games Bee-gin! See you hopefully tomorrow.
