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!

Mammy_Gram

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.

Glitz and Glitter

GlitzyGlimmer

It’s day 10 of my Breast Cancer Awareness Month series. Lots of glam. The glitter didn’t photograph well but this card is the fully loaded baked potato when it comes to glitz. It’s got so much glitter and shimmer that it inspired me to glam up my nails too. Check it out!

GlitterTips

Again with the photographing of glitter but you get the idea. I focus on painting just the tips of my nails with my glitter polish. I used Sally Hanson Xtreme Wear in Disco Ball. Up close and personal this polish really pops off the nail with light shimming everywhere from the rainbows of tiny specks of color. This manicure gave me a few ideas for some fun nail art that I’ll be trying next week. I’ll share more after my lab experiment. Mahhaha…

See you tomorrow for more Breast Cancer Awareness.

MerMaiden
I just got finished this little mermaid. What a fun little 4×4″ creation. I used acrylic paints, colored pencils, micron, and gel pens, along with glitter glue. I dripped crayon wax over it and buffed the wax with a paper towel to make it shine. For bling I used rhinestones, a decorative leaf, glitter-collaging paper. I also used torn colored tissue paper for part of the background layering. All I need to do now is wait for her to dry… yes, I was so excited to post this that the glitter glue is still wet! When she’s dry and I have finished the other four minis I’m working on I’ll get my outside table set up for a varnishing session. Then it’ll be time for the hangers… which reminds me I need to buy more of. =) Since today is shopping day I’ll jot those down on my shopping list. I usually work on at least two paintings at once so that I have something to do while paint dries. The one that’s “nearly” finished is a mini Halloween painting. Think purples, greens, oranges, black and spiders! It’s coming along nicely. I’ll likely have it done by tomorrow so you’ll get a Pre-Halloween treat! Now, off to clean up for a trip to Fred Meyer. Oh… before I go, I have to tell you.. yesterday I put an order in at Dick Blick! I’m finally buying something from my wist list! Stonehenge paper (along with about five other things!) I’m SO excited about blending on butter again! It’s scheduled to arrive on the same day as my physical and the day I get my blood test results so I’ll get to come home to something comforting! You KNOW God planned that perfectly!

Green Gift Greets!

Sunday, August 1st, 2010
I was just playing around with materials on my desk while waiting for paint to dry this past week and decided to do something with these square cards I bought oh so many years ago. I sponged the edges, stuck each with a leaf sticker, and cut some circles from fabric and papers and glued them all together… I punched some wee little holes on the opposite side and strung some jute through them and tada! Gift tags! Super easy, super quick and the impact is powerful with the vivid colors. I’ll be putting these and several more of my creations up on my Etsy this coming week so be sure to stop by and see what’s new in the shop! I hope your Sunday is also a Funday and that you have some time for creating, or movies, or whatever it is that makes you smile! See you back here tomorrow with one mess or another. Happy Day!
