          Shadowbox

          Note: Taking photos of reflective surfaces is one of my least favorite things to do!

          I created this shadowbox for the July 2019 Lindy’s Gang Color Challenge (Info can be found on the Lindy’s Blog and Facebook Page). It’s my first time doing a Lindy’s Challenge, mostly because I need more Lindy’s supplies. It’s not a lack of wanting to go on a Lindy’s shopping spree, it’s an “I don’t know where it would go” thing. I need to use up some of the items I already own so I’ll have spots for new stuff! (However, if I’m lucky enough to win, then the hubs can’t question why I bought new items when I am clearly at capacity! “It’s not my fault,” I’ll say, “I was trying to use what I own and this just happened!”)

          Anyhow, I did happen to have some Lindy’s Magical Shakers in Bratwurst BrownGrab A Guy Gold, and Alpine Ice Rose that I thought would work for this challenge. I “diluted” the Alpine Ice Rose in some white texture paste for the Pale Rose in the color challenge (1st color on the photo below) and used my “new” texture paste for the stenciling on the outside of the shadowbox. I also created the Red Brown (2nd color on the photo below) for the color challenge in a homemade spray by mixing Alpine Ice Rose and Bratwurst Brown, which I sprayed on the (white) Darice flowers.
          I used a lot of Bratwurst Brown and Grab A Guy Gold on the outside of the shadowbox, as well as on the background inside the shadowbox. On the lattice, after I gave it a coat of white gesso, I used clear embossing ink on the surface and brushed on more Grab A Guy Gold. (There will be a process video link further down this post which will hopefully explain things a lot better than I can with words!)
          My process video: It will go here after editing & uploading. Also, uploads can take a while for me because I have satellite Internet…and to top it off, today is a rainy/overcast day.

          However, I do have a few close-ups for you to look at!

          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. In this case I wanted to use/remember this quote by Former First Lady Michelle Obama from her book Becoming:

          Now I think it’s one of the most useless questions an adult can ask a child—What do you want to be when you grow up? As if growing up is finite. As if at some point you become something and that’s the end.

          I think it is probably a good thing art journaling doesn’t have to have a purpose, because this looks nothing like what I was hoping for. But it did let me just experiment, which can be helpful when suffering from a mental road block. Basically, I was going for something shinier and dreamier, but I’m okay with the end result.

          My only inspiration, besides the quote, came from this months Creative Embellishments Color Challenge. It helps that my favorite color is blue! I even managed to get the twist in (clouds or waves) when I stenciled on some clouds!

          I can’t guarantee a video. I recorded as I went, but my computer was acting up. In the end it actually decided it wanted to restart while in the process of recording. The last step is actually not recorded because it involved texture paste & paint and I couldn’t wait for my computer to stop being temperamental.

          I, more or less, know what is recorded, the problem is my computer cooperating during editing.

          While I see how the video is willing to come along, here are some photos!

          Adventure

          For the More Than Words July (Main) Challenge: Discover & Stash

          Discover made me think of maps, right away. Maybe my subconscious is trying to tell me something. After that I didn’t really have a plan, I just went where my stash led me.

          Stash:
          Clipboard – I don’t know how old it is, but I’ve owned it for almost two years now.

          I think Tea Dye was one of my first Tim Holtz ink pads I bought! Way back when I wasn’t sure what “distress” really meant, but hey, “this Tim Holtz fella has stuff to make new stuff look like old stuff!” My husband could actually make a pretty good case claiming Tim was an original “supplier” that got me hooked leading to an entire spare bedroom being filled with paper craft related items! I love Tim Holtz so much I have hoarded his papers waiting for just the right time. I have been working on accepting the fact that it’s a lot more productive to make the right time myself rather than expect a sudden epiphany. Plus, I’m having a much harder time remembering EVERYTHING I own…so if I can’t even remember everything, how will I ever use everything?

          Anyhow, all but 11 of the items on the product list are at least a year old (and that includes adhesives, the 3D Gel, the wax & such), of those 11 items, I think 5 have “appeared” within the last 6 months.

          I used as much from my stash as I could, and I can’t tell. You’d never know anything was “missing.” I tell myself I should stop buying until I get my stash knocked down, but every time I think that something new is released & I realize I need to just stop thinking nonsense and do more projects!

          Beautiful handmade roses by ReneaBouquets!

          JudiKins Diamond Glaze works great for this because is thin and dries fast!
          I’ve had these unbranded glass beads for a while, and they have almost made it to a few previous projects, but today I finally got to use them and not just put them back away! (They are a little bigger than the micro beads from ReneaBouquets)

            Dragonfly Express

            The Dragonfly Express! (This photo was taken in full sunlight.)
            This project actually had two sources of inspiration. The first was the ReneaBouquets June 2019 Mood Board Challenge, the second inspiration was the Creative Embellishments June 2019 Challenge. (Both sources of inspiration are below) I actually saw the Creative Embellishment challenge first, and I have a thing for hot air balloons. A looking at them from the ground thing, not an actually getting into one thing.
            Anyhow, I also really wanted to use this dragonfly I had been working on, and a hot air balloon doesn’t need any help flying, so it (slowly) transformed into a flying ship! Besides the flying in the Creative Embellishment inspiration, I also love the whimsy of the image, and the Ferris wheels made me think of actual wheels!

            The following photos were taken in a more shaded area, because my front porch had a convenient hook I could use to get some greenery in the background and not have to hold the project in one hand while shooting with the other! LOL!!

            ReneaBouquets Glass Microbeads for the dragonfly’s eyes and ReneaBouquets Beautiful Beads on top of the masts.
            ReneaBouquets Tiny Anchor and Creative Embellishments Pipes and Gears pieces.

            And here are some photo of the dragonfly while it was still grounded! [Note: I found the dragonfly in my yard, buried in the dirt by a tree, apparently left by the previous owners. It was shortly after finding it that I came across a Finnabair DT members (I think) post in Instagram who used Finnabair’s Leaves to build butterfly wings (I think it was a butterfly) and a solution to my broken wing dragonfly was born!]

                Water Fairy

                I love water lily’s, I think they are so beautiful floating out on a pond, so I was, of course, immediately drawn to, and inspired by, the water lily in the Mixed Media Place’s May Mood Board
                I just couldn’t help myself! I have a pond on my property, but I have yet to get the water lily’s I want for it, so I decided to make one! (I think the husband worries they will interfere with fishing too much!)
                The May Mood Board for Mixed Media Place’s May Challenge.

                Process Video:

                The flower is from the Silhouette Design Store, but I found the artist’s assembly instructions here: JMRush: Water Lily Votive Candle (Flameless) Assembly

                Welcome!

                Texture Pebbles sprayed with Dylusion’s and RenaBouquet’s Glass Beads! (The glue wasn’t all the way dry!)

                The tea light is turned on in this photo, but it’s also the middle of the day in a well lit room!

                A closer look at ReneaBouquet’s beautiful dragonfly!

              • Altered Notebook – June ReneaBouquet Swap

                Altered Notebook – June ReneaBouquets Facebook Swap



                The notebook is a 9″x6″ notebook I found at Wal-Mart.

                I’ve owned the Prima Wildflowers Pillar for a few years now, and have been waiting to use that big, orange hibiscus on just the right project! Apparently the “right project” does eventually come along! LOL

                ReneaBouquets always seems to have just the right pieces for so many of my projects.

                This flamingo is made with Amazing Cast Resin & a Wilton, silicon, candy mold!

                Some more “waiting for the perfect project” items I had been hoarding. Studio Calico was the first crafting supply subscription I used! I love them, and in a perfect world I’d be a subscriber to ALL clubs I could find, but since I don’t have Jeff Bezos’ money, I try different clubs, one at a time!


                And here is a process video if you’d like to see the high speed version of assembly!


                **I made the cut file for the “replacement” cover using Silhouette Studio.

                Butterfly Lights

                “Butterfly Lights”

                In honor of her one year anniversary of Tres Jolie Kit Club, Kim had an online (Facebook) crop! The first challenge posted was a “bingo” challenge, and this is what I made using [most of] the products that came in the Tres Jolie June Mixed Media Kit!

                Challenge #1 Scrapbook Bingo: Complete a project (card, scrapbook page, altered project, etc) using the any of the items list in a row. That row can be straight or diagonal. Upload your project to the Crop challenge file by Midnight (CST) tomorrow [June 9, 2019] for a chance to win a prize. You don’t have to use one of our kits, but it would be nice to see (just no promoting any other kits).

                The row with the yellow box is my “BINGO!”

                The breakdown:

                • Watercolor: I know, I know. HOW is there watercolor on there?!?! It was messy, but I added Concentrated Watercolors by Art Philosophy to the project (on top of the Acrylic Modeling Paste, which is where the Mod Podge Acrylic Sealer came in! I used it to keep those watercolors in place after they dried!!)
                • Twine/String: Jute String by Tim Holtz on the top knob
                • Wire: Wire lights by Prima
                • Beads: Teal Glass Beautiful Beads by ReneaBouquets
                • Glitter: Diamond Chunky Glitter Glass by ReneaBouquets
                The good news, I’ve managed to (finally) make my computer capable of recording videos!
                The bad news? I haven’t edited the video for this project yet! (limited project submission time and all)
                BUT…I’m going to edit it! I swear!!

                UPDATE: I finished the editing…sorta. I mean, there’s video, but no sound [Update #2: I added music after my son said it was “creepily quiet” LOL!]. By the time I “dealt” with my computer I was too tired of trying. Plus, it’s been many, many years since I’ve played with video editing, and I am still trying to get my groove back! As I continue recording projects I do, the videos should theoretically improve…but for now, here is the video that has had almost 4 hours shaved off!

                Here are some photos!
