Pirate Card

Sorry this came out so dark, but it's such a fabulous card I had to share it.  It is a birthday card I recently received.  Hopefully you can tell the it was cut out and popped up.  The dimension to this detailed card is amazing.  Color was added with colored pencils.  I love it!

As you can see, I've been doing lots of painting!  But, not on paper.  Can't tell you how fun it is to take a tired old, ugly item and make it come to life with a little bit of paint!  Before pictures would have really convinced you, but I was so in the moment, I forgot to take the pictures.  We are getting ready for another show at DC Flea next weekend.  In the mean time, we are headed up to Lancaster today for the antiques extravaganza weekend.  Am sure we will find more treasures for the show and we are looking forward to the hunt.  Hope to be back to crafting next week.

Art Journal Class

We had a fun class yesterday doing Art Journaling.  One of the students let me take a picture of her entry.  I love how she interpreted my example and changed it up by adding in some colored metallic pieces.  She also used some gold that had been sprayed with webbing to add more texture to the paper.  Nothing like happy art experiments!

Art Journal Entry

For those who have been patiently waiting to see what we are doing in Art Journaling this month, here it is!  We are working on a new abstract page using paints, metallic papers, and pearlex.  Class will be on Tuesday.  There is a day session and an evening session.  Call the store if you are interested.

Die cut word

Like the card I did yesterday, this word was done on the plaid paper.  Like how it turned out.  This plaid paper goes well with many colors.  Yesterday it was a hot pink color, today a green, and tomorrow?  More options!  Love that.  Also loving these little sequins.  Just adds a nice extra touch to cards.

Memory Box Die

It's so nice to have the words connected in this die.  Once the paper is run through the machine, it all comes out as one piece which makes for ease when manipulating it.  The words were done on the same paper as the bottom piece.  Was happy with the results.

This is the other image we did in our Zentangle class this week.  Once home, I added color and the saying.  Time flies by when doing these designs!
