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. The above photo was taken in a “tent” made of a blanket and jackets while using a black light to show some glow. I needContinue reading “Bad Chemistry!”

Letters for Linny! (ReneaBouquets "Initial" Swap)

Linny’s Initials – for the ReneaBouquets Initial Swap hosted by Donna (bonprof) over at scrapbook.com! At the start of the swap, when we exchanged addresses, Linny told me her craft room was mauve, burgundy, pink, green, and cream, so I tried to make it so her letters would match her already established decor! (She toldContinue reading “Letters for Linny! (ReneaBouquets "Initial" Swap)”

Altered Embroidery Hoop

An altered embroidery hoop I created for Linda B. for the August ReneaBoquets Swap! Since Linda and I agreed on an “anything goes” theme, I used the Creative Embellishments August mood board challenge as inspiration. Specifically the Silver & Purple ombré hair. I had planned on trying a green & purple idea, as you’ll seeContinue reading “Altered Embroidery Hoop”

Fairy Mirror

A little decorative mirror I put together for the July 2019 Mixed Media Place Challenge. For this project I was inspired by the colors found on the July, Mixed Media Place, mood board, most specifically the yellows, reds, and seafoam green. Especially since the green on the ReneaBouquets Fairy “Belle” was a fantastic match! BelowContinue reading “Fairy Mirror”

Denim Junk Journal

A junk journal I created using some denim from a pair of old jeans, bits of lace and string, old sheets of music, paper I dyed with inks and/or tea, and the “Denim & Girls” Collection by Maja Design (that came in the July 2019 Tres Jolie Kit Club Scrapbooking Kit). Videos: Flip Through ProcessContinue reading “Denim Junk Journal”

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 notContinue reading “Shadowbox”

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 askContinue reading “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
