Art in my heart


I made this little ATC today to enter in a couple of challenges.

Simon Says - Spritz and Spray ( The inks were sprayed onto a sheet of wax paper and left to dry and then I cut my heart from that sheet )
The Mixed Media Challenge - #21 Glitter ( I spread Distressed Stickles over the top of the wax heart, might be a little hard to tell, but it is there )
ColourArte #8 - Color is the Heart of Art ( The entire background is made from Twinkling H20's )

I really wish the shimmer showed up better :)

Bucket List

Here we go again with another bucket list project of mine....to write and illustrate a children's book. I don't even care if it actually gets published ( but that would be awesome, right?) I just want to do it. Next month I will get my chance to do that for a video collaboration but in the meantime, Deco Art asked me to do a portfolio cover so I created this one from a cardboard box....you can find the steps for it here.

Advice from a snowman

I just love the IndigoBlu FlitterGlu kits and just love how well it did on the Rain Droplets stamp, which in my case I used it as snow...yes, we have snow again in the forecast....wheeee....lol...I have snow on the brain, have I mentioned I love snow?

One of my friends, however, does not, so that means I love sending her snow cards, lol

Advice from a snowman:
Be a jolly, happy soul
Spend time outdoors
Stay cool
It's OK to be a little bottom heavy
Be well rounded
Avoid meltdowns
Embrace change

March Hare

Today starts the Alice Through the Looking Glass video art crawl on youtube. I am honored to be amongst some fabulous artists over there and I do hope you join us. Pour yourself a cup of tea and watch our videos. 
Now the Alice in Wonderland people will immediately get the cup of tea reference, especially with the March Hare who loves his tea time with the Mad Hatter! I will admit to you my blog readers that I did not...and I also was confused with the March Hare and the White Rabbit! Seriously, I didn't realize that there were 2 rabbits in the story but after my research I do now!! lol

...and yes, I got the craziest one.....
lol

Sending sunshine is easy

Entering my card in


 I love beautiful papers like this one from the Indigoblu Floral Vignettes - Mixed Media Paper Pad because all I had to do was sew some french knots in the sunflowers for some dimension.  I also added some pen work around the edges of the card with my Signo Uniball pen and my Micron pen. The sentiment was printed out on my computer and then cut out.
.

I love easy! Don't you?

Happy Birthday Pierson!

My grand nephew turned 2...Happy birthday Pierson!
I made him a special birthday card to coordinate with his under the sea theme birthday party that he had...more pictures to come of that later but for now, you can pop over to the Helmar blog today to check out his card. 


Book lovers magnet

Hey ya'll, this is my first post up over on the Creative Paperclay blog!
I do hope you get a chance to pop over there and see my project, especially if you were thinking of getting into Creative Paperclay for the first time and wondered how hard can it be to use. Well, I am the ULTRA beginner and if I can do it then you can too!

Here's a sneak peek and I have a video step out tutorial for those with any questions!
