Playing in Paradise - Easter or Spring

Hello everyone,

I'm back with a quick post to invite you to come Play in Paradise!  Our theme this month is anything Easter or Spring goes.  In spring, I am always anxious to play in the dirt and plant beautiful flowers, so I used that as my inspiration.

I started with a rough, unfinished wooden sign from a dollar store and applied a layer of gesso.  I adhered the designer paper with a gesso transfer technique, added the stamped flower with a tissue transfer technique, and added the computer generated sentiment similarly to how a tattoo artist transfers a drawing to skin, only using a Copic multiliner & tissue paper instead of a needle & whatever paper they use.  Add a layer of something to seal it all and it can be hung outside in the garden.


Wood sign
Mod Podge or other glue and sealer
Copic sketch (R20, 22 & colorless blender)

The team has made some gorgeous projects to inspire, so I hope you will pop by to check them out, as well as all the challenge details.  Then come and play!

Thanks so much for stopping in.  Hugs & happy crafting!

Glitter everywhere!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and enjoying some beautiful spring weather.  I am afraid I have been dreadfully absent from the land of blog.  As my wee one gets older, I am having a hard time justifying spending so much time in front of the computer.  He is growing up so fast, and I know if I miss these moments, I will never get them back.  So, I haven't been doing as much crafting or blogging and I plan on cutting back until he starts school.

A quick post then to invite everyone to get a head start on Christmas and join in a new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'.  We have a really fun theme this month - 'Glitter Glitter Everywhere' - and it was.  I kept my project quick and simple, making glitter covered gift tags using some of my favourite Christmas ornament dies.  They are so sparkly!

We have a fantastic sponsor - one lucky winner will get 5 digis from StampArt Design!  I hope you will pop by Christmas at Sweet Stampin' to see the beautiful cards the team has made and then join in with us.

Thanks so much for popping in!  Hug & happy crafting!
