Dolls are Everywhere..Julie Nutting Challenge


Julie Nutting posted a challenge on her blog...."Dolls are Everywhere" and this is my doll.

I was going to take a photo of Steffi going out for a drive and my dog simply walked into frame as I was taking the picture. I thought it was just too cute.

Here is the link to the blog

Pretty in Pink frame


This week I was playing with the Julie Nutting doll stamps and I made this frame.
The doll was made using cold porcelain can find the recipe online.
Next I covered a simple wood frame with paper and I used colored pencils to darken some of the roses and leaves on the paper. I added pearls and used craft varnish to seal everything.
Once dry I added the doll and some flowers.

Tea Time Birthday Easel card


My neighbor loves anything shabby chic so I made this  easel card for her birthday.
 This is my version of shabby chic.

I used the Tea Time die from Tim Holtz, added I am Roses flowers and some flat back pearls.

I created a box envelope and used a tea cup as the closure. When you pull on the sting from the tea bag the flap pulls out from inside the tea cup.

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Mostly green Journal Page


This week I've been trying to get my scrap room organized but I keep getting distracted or having to take too many "breaks". Yesterday, I grouped  all my gelatos, pencils, and different mediums in small containers trying to decide how to store them efficiently and instead I wound up playing with them.
I began by creating a background with Gelatos and mists, then I used stencils and modeling paste for the leafy backdrop. I used stamps, markers and pencils to add more foliage and added mica fragments  and ultra fine glitter to add more texture.
The parrot is a Stampendous stamp that I colored with pencils, cut out and added to my page using foam adhesive. As a finishing touch I added some small butterflies.

                                                  I used a stencil and modeling paste for the
                                                  large leaf and the small ones on the branch.

this is a close up of the mica fragments and glitter.

                                    I added micro beads to create the body of the tiny butterflies.

I will be participating in Take a Challenge with Mou - July 2015. This months' challenge was to use the color green.
Thanks for watching.

Buttons and twine

Here is a fun card I made for Father's Day. I wanted to try something new, so used things I had around the house.
 I used a stencil and some ink spray to create the background on the green mat.
I found some vintage buttons from my stash, added jute twine and glued  them  on to the mat to create  my card.

Thanks for stopping by.

Flower bird house

This is my third post today and here is another birdhouse box.
I had so much fun with the first one that I decided to make a second.  I thought the flowers and the colors in the paper were just perfect for this project.
