Keep an open mind all my vintage friends…

Jun 17, 2010

as this is very different from my normal style by a long shot BUT painting sure has rested my shoulder and it is feeling much better. Only I would end up with a scrapping injury. So here is what I have been working on and am so glad I can finally share. This album uses Maya Road products from their Summer release as well as lots of Maya Mists and Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints. Love these paints so much. This project will be a class at The Crafty Scrapper someday in the near future… just need to figure out when. This album includes photos of my dad, mom, me and my husband Alan.

What a fun weekend…

Jun 14, 2010

This past weekend was filled with loads of fun at The Crafty Scrapper. I taught three sold out classes, 2 – Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend and 1 – Tuscany and Roses. I actually remembered to bring my camera AND take some photos. Although I must admit I forgot to take photos of the first class. I get so wrapped up in teaching and laughing that my camera is the last thing i think about BUT I put the camera in my apron for the 2nd and 3rd class and made myself remember. So here are a few photos of all the fun being had. This is Friday nights Tuscany and Roses Class And here are photos from Saturdays Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend Class. AND… since so many were not able...

Summer Flowers

Jun 4, 2010

Here are some flowers I created using paper flowers from the Prima Flowers Wildflower Pillar Pack in White. I made these the same way I created these.  Once I finished creating the flowers I misted them using Maya Road Maya Mist Lime Green Metallic, Turquoise Metallic and Plum Metallic. I think these are perfect accents for any summer layout or project. The Crafty Scrapper has all of the products I used if you need to order online. Just send Carolyn an email telling her I sent you her way and she will get you all fixed up. Have a great...

Having fun with paints

Jun 1, 2010

I have been playing around with a new style that is so funky and whimsical and I am really loving it. Painting seems to be less stressful on my shoulder so I am working in this medium for a bit. You will notice I still included my favorites… vintage ledger paper and sheet music as well as a beautiful vintage rhinestone button. It has been fun venturing outside of my comfort zone. The paints I used  are by Claudine Hellmuth and I think they are awesome. The colors are wonderful and the consistency of each bottle  is perfect. Her paints are super creamy. I used the end of my paintbrush to make the polka dots, a coffee mug to create the white circles, an old stencil I had for the numbers. A charcoal pencil...
