I love to create, what? anything and everything - specially if I can paint it, too! I love to use my own sketches in all the stuff I paint, from fabric, to wood, to glass and beads, yes I like to make my own beads and paint them too!!!
Now I have lots of scrapbook materials - yet this is how I scrapbook - I take wood frames and decorate them - now I don't have any idea of what colors, embellishments, papers or paints I'm going to need - so that means I have to have everything on hand and just let my imagination go WILD! so far I LOVE every single frame that I have done. I've posted some previously but here are the latest additions - still have more to work on but for now I'm going to concentrate on making my own embellishments to use on all my projects from home decor to accessories and anything else that I can think of making. I believe that crafting is not only a way for me to relax from all the daily stress - but it keeps my BRAIN active and functional (well at least I noticed my memory is better). I strongly believe that crafting is exercise for my brain, now if only it could be exercise for my body - it would just be awesome! but enough talk (writing) time to get the pictures here.
Hi there, this month our Design Team got creative with Amazing Casting Products along with products from StencilGirl Products. Make sure to visit every designer's blog to see what fun and amazing projects they created to share with you. I decided to use these two stencils, they just looked fun and I felt I could combine both by using the Amazing Mold Putty to make a mold of the two stencils. Below you can see the two products I used to get started. Be ready to see lots of photos, this mixed media project involved so many steps and days to complete, but I really hope you like it as much as I do.
If you are not familiar with this product, Amazing Mold Putty is an FDA compliant 2 component silicone mold putty. It's very easy to use, take equal amounts of Parts A and B and mix it by hand until you have one uniform color (yellow), it takes about 20 minutes to cure, but due to climate changes it might take less or more to cure. It will give you a flexible rubber mold that will c…

Now for my project I wanted to make something for Father's Day. I have a small nephew his dad is about to graduate from boot camp and thought it would be nice to make this project for him to give to his dad when we go see him graduate and become a US Marine officer. This foam elephant puzzle had two sides, the front had the letters, so I used that as the back, I didn't want the alphabet to show.
Now let's get started with this fun Father's Day photo frame. I used some jumbo craft sticks to create a fence and instead of painting it I decided to decoupage the sticks with the Mod Podge ® Puzzle Saver. Each si…
