Bad Chemistry!

I saw test tubes in the mood board, I was felling like I should get ready for Halloween and I came across the test tube set at Michael’s one Sunday.

Origin (Canvas) – MTW Sept. 2019

Over on the More Than Words Challenge blog this month we were tasked with finding inspiration from the word “Origins” and using the colors of our country.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Sometimes, just sometimes, I feel the need to do a project that has no real purpose. That’s where art journaling comes in.

Egg Hunt

Egg Hunt – Created for the More Than Words June 2019 Main Challenge! I started scrap-booking way back in 2009 when a friend asked me if I wanted to come over and scrap with her one night.

Altered ‘cigar’ box for the May 2019 ReneaBouquet Facebook Swap! **Someone mentioned the word ‘tutorial,’ and I’ll try that here as best I can… I do have a computer and a webcam and everything, BUT in early 2018 the power supply on my computer fried itself…I mean there were sparks and everything!
