Little Easter Vignette

 Hello Everybody!

Easter is a week away! And I'm not sure I am quite ready. I had big plans-but sometimes I need to take small steps. LOL. So here is a small step in my Easter craftiness.

This is the smallest of the Tim Holtz vignettes. The little bunnies are from Hobby Lobby. So I used some distress ink on a piece of pattern paper for the background.  The butterfly and heart are  little metal charms from mod podge. I used speckled egg and kitch flamingo embossing glazes on them. The cool gems are studio katia. And you see see the fake moss grass stuff.

Let me tell you about the flowers! I won them from my friend Em. They are made out of white cardstock.  I used chrome yellow ranger archival ink for yellow and broken china and wilted violet distress oxide inks. And then I added nuvo dots.

I painted the outside of the box with white acrylic paint. Once dry, I adhered this cute Doodlebug washi tape to the outside of it. (This super cute tape came from Simon Says Stamps) :)

Here is the vignette box again. :)

I am submitting this into the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp: Spring/Easter Mood Board.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you again real soon! :)

My Love for Finnabair

 Hello Everybody!

This is an origin story-LOL. I was going through my pictures-and I realized that this is a project that I haven't posted anywhere. Not on my blog or Insta or FB. And I don't know how it happened but it's important for me to post it.  Wait--I made this project in January 2020 (I checked the date on the unedited pictures.)   LOL then things got busy and then there was a pandemic. 

It really did start my love for Finnabair moulds and waxes. So I was watching YouTube and watched Ann from Finnabair do an altered tin project. You can see it here. I was really inspired and thought-hey I can do that. 

Some how I had started making a few moulds. I had faces from sculpey.

So I got a mint tin. (Look there's two-but still to this day one still is in it's original state lol.)

I painted the whole thing in black gesso. I followed the video with what supplies I had.

I made this using a Tim Holtz sticker word. Maybe I had the Melange art pebbles already? I don't know but I was excited when she show how to make this. I adhered fine glitter behind the word.

Here is the bottom part started. There is the sculpey face and some little bit I put in the tin. That is silver paint not wax on the moon face.

Painted black gesso over everything that I knew would be permanent.

Here's the front of the tin.

Here it is now. This is some sort of mesh  that I adhered to the front of the tin.

I had a Finnabair paint-one of the opal magic. I painted blue first and then highlighted with the opal magic paint. There's my create art pebble.  I also started to add some fun glitter.

Now here is the front. It's possible I had a silver wax but I kind of think that was silver paint at the time.

And here is the inside. I also added some silver star sequins.  And I have loved Finnabair ever since. :)

Viking Happy Birthday

 Hello Friends!

This is a Happy Birthday Card I made for my dad. I love this little Viking Guy and it has taken me a few tries to color him and be happy with it. 

I used a gelli plate and a page from a book for the background. I also used a little walnut distress ink around the edges. I used prisma color markers to color the image. The Viking is from My Favorite Things Stamps. The happy is a Tim Holtz die. And the sentiment under it is a Taylored Expressions stamp and die cut. 

I stamped on the inside-which I don't often do but how could I not--this clever little sentiment had to go somewhere! :) 

I am submitting this card into the following challenges:

March Challenge at the Rainbow Card Challenge!

 Hello Everybody!

New month new challenge! This month we are all about Jade at the Rainbow Card Challenge!

This is my card.  

I made a galaxy background using lucky clover, rustic wilderness, and wilted violet distress oxides.  I watered down some white paint and made the dots in the background. The stamps are from Lawn Fawn-they have 2 space sets and these are from both sets. I used my prismacolor markers to color the aliens and their ships and the planet in the background. The ground is a paper I covered with lucky clover and rustic wilderness distress oxides. And the sequin stars are from Queen and Company.

This mood board is so awesome! I hope you are inspired and play along with us! :)
