Bachelorette Buttons

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.

I thought this would be fun. After all, who doesn’t love PINK? I really. Using several shades of pink, some ribbon, rhinestones, papers, and glitters I made this Breast Cancer Awareness Month card to mark Day 11. I enjoyed the spattering process so much on this mini project that I got pink paint all over my glasses. I was seeing spots all day before it dawned on me.

Tomorrow’s Friday! Yay! Shopping day and time to pick up the ingredients for making homemade Pumpkin Spiced Creamer for some lattes. NOM! I can almost taste it now. I love pumpkin… in cheesecake, in soups, pie, and yes… in coffee. The creamer is truly awesome in hot cocoa too! Speaking of coffee… It’s time to run downstairs and make a fresh pot! See you tomorrow for Day 12.

Shelix the Cat

♥ Shelix the Cat ♥
This was awesome! I had the best time with this she-cat. The first thing I did was choose her “attire” … and then I was stumped. When I get that way the first thing to do is SOMETHING! I started by adding turquoise. I used a circular patterned piece of “plastic” I have and stamped through it with a very small sponge. It overwhelmed me. To toned it down I added white tissue paper… and did a turquoise wash over it. Much better…But it still needs more, so black lava texture gel! Oh yes! Now I’m thinking of something to add to make it more interesting. Dig, dig, dig, dig, dig, through drawers, boxes, more boxes, more drawers… ah ha! I found the perfect ORANGE flowers… with yellow flowers along side. Hold the phone, the yellow brings far more punch to the party. (learned something about color.!) The flowers have a pop-dot on the back and I decide to leave it so the painting has more dimension. I like. Now for leaves, I collaged on some leaves cut from decorative napkins. (truly the only reason I bought 2 packages of these napkins.) I wanted a tad more yellow so I used a hard bodied yellow acrylic paint and stamped a few flowers around. It still needs something… While all this was going on and I was waiting for paint to dry I was also working on some gift tags… I was using green fabric for a flower for them (I’ll share them over the weekend) I had a messy pile of tiny tugged threads from said fabric “right” in front of me and I’m one to never let a medium go to waste… so grabbing my brush and gel medium on they go… all over this piece. And as each hat needs a ribbon and a flower or a feather, I chose a feather. Seriously, what cat wouldn’t be proud to display a birds feather in her cap! And she’s done. I hope you enjoyed the story of Shelix the Cat and how she came to be. I hope your TGIF is Fantastic and that all of your creative dreams come true!
