My Favorite Things Flower set

April showers brings May flowers!  Been enjoying this set by MFT.  There are two die sets that go with these flowers.  So many options for making cards!  Just in this stamp set are the solid stamps and then outline stamps for all the images.  On this card I opted to just add the outlines to the flower heads.  This is the card we are doing today as a free MITI at Angela's Happy Stamper store.  Come join the fun!

Magnet Boards

Well it's been another interesting week for me.  Took a trek up to PA for another family funeral.  But, was able to be back in time to meet with these sweet ladies for a fun night.  We took metal trays and painted them (with several layers of gesso first).  Then we took buttons and paper flowers with brads and applied magnets to them so they'd stick to the tray.  Magnetic tape was added to the back so the board will stick to any metal surface.  Didn't they do a great job?

One layer card

Oh the joys of a simple one layer card!  Used a new stencil by Stencilgirl on this white card.  The color was sponged on patting and dabbing over the delicate parts of the stencil.  Then the bee was stamped along with the words.  The color of the bee was done with a blender pen pulling ink off the same pad used to color the stencil.  I made this for the Make It Take It at Angela's Happy Stamper this Thursday.   Hope you can come do this free card.

New Class

Been busy in the craft room getting ready for a new techniques class being initiated this Thursday.  It's a card class on Mixed Media.  The greatest problem has been trying to answer the question- "How do you reduce mixed media to one class?"  I'm sticking to the basics for an intro for folks who have not yet ventured into the wondrous world of mixed media.  It's actually gone well and here are two of the projects we will be doing.  Call the store if you are interested in joining us.

Dyan Reavley's Paints

We had a great time yesterday prepping our Spiritual Art Journals for May.  We found out all about the joys of Dyan's paints!  Today then, we took one of our pages and drew Mandalas over the paints.  I used a fine point Sharpie and found it worked very well over the page.  Will definitely be doing more of these.
