Welcome Back to School banner

I wanted to make a banner for my daughter's class room.  As a first grade teacher, she wants her classroom to be colorful and warm so I set to work.  Thanks to Art Anthology for the lovely paints and wait til you see what I used to stamp the painted images...check it out HERE.
    Here are a couple of  'teasers'.

Down by the Sea for Art Anthology

Coming back from vacation is always tough.  We tend to get caught up in the unpacking, laundry and catching up on missed chores that piled up while we were away.  I wanted to capture some of the carefree atmosphere I experienced during our 3 weeks at the beach so I created this 3 giant tag to help take me back.    Thanks to Art Anthology's wonderful paints and sprays and Gecko Galz Umbrella Girls images, I think I did just that.


For detailed directions on how I created this and the products I used, click HERE.  Be sure to check out the design work by my team mates at both Art Anthology and Gecko Galz.

CREATE for Basically Bare

I love all the wonderful chipboard albums available from Basically Bare and the fact that refills are available for all the Artful Binder ones.  Check out what I did with this one HERE.
These flowers were a delight to paint and give dimension with the products from Art Anthology.

P.S.  If you are looking for my altered bottle, scroll down a bit and thanks.

Found Object Redoux

I've been playing with my "Found Object" mermaid in a bottle and, thanks to Beacon Adhesives ' Glass, Metal & More permanent glue, I've added some shells to the outside of the bottle as well as scattering a few on the bottom.  This was the original with more "watercolor" added  and the addition of the shells. 

And this is the version in the "watercolored" wine bottle...

Will keep on 'kicking it up a notch' over the summer and gathering shells from the beach.   Thanks for looking.

Teaser Alert!

A little sneak peak at my mini for Whim So Doodle in St. Pete, Fl.  Have fallen in love with the new G45 "An Eerie Tale Collection" and Whim's has it all.  I'll be mailing the mini album in its entirety out Sat. so it should be in the shop by Monday for sure.


The colors are gorgeous, the design is spell binding and it is never too soon to pick up some fall papers.
