Ranger Designer Challenge 2015

Jan 16, 2015

It’s always so excit­ing to be invit­ed to par­tic­i­pate in the Ranger Design­er Chal­lenge. Basi­cal­ly how it works is Ranger picks a prod­uct line to fea­ture, sends the design­ers a box of the prod­ucts and you cre­ate a project using these prod­ucts. This year the chal­lenge was a can­vas using Dina Wak­ley’s Media paints, sten­cils and stamps. Talk about a fun chal­lenge. I also used some Tim Holtz Dis­tress Stick­les Dry Glit­ter Rocky Can­dy and of course Dia­mond Stick­les. I have fall­en in love with Dina’s Media paints. They come in a tube with a flip top and are heavy body acrylics that spread like but­ter! I already have her new col­ors Glitz, Ster­ling and Pen­ny on my list of “Must Have Now” as well as Dina’s super cool new Media Fine Tip Appli­ca­tor. These...

So proud of my friend…

Jun 14, 2011

One of the neat­est raf­fles at Paper Cow­girl was the “Altered Velvee­ta Box” raf­fle. All the mon­ey raised for this raf­fle goes towards the Tina Wright Schol­ar­ship Fund. Tina was a friend of Cindy’s (Head Cow­girl) and sad­ly passed away from can­cer. Near­ly $300.00 dol­lars was raised for this fund and it is awe­some that it helps keep Tina’s mem­o­ry alive. Tina loved art and being cre­ative so this schol­ar­ship helps keep her pas­sion going through young peo­ple in her home town. A tro­phy was giv­en for the most mon­ey raised and rib­bons were giv­en out for the most votes. I am so proud of my friend Trisha. She won the tro­phy for most mon­ey raised AND got 4th place in most votes. Trisha teach­es real­ly unique sol­der­ing class­es at The Crafty Scrap­per. Her...

Paper Mosaic

Feb 24, 2011

This mini album is fea­tured in my book on page 48. They did­n’t show the cov­er so I thought I would share it with you now since Spring is just around the cor­ner. The step outs on page 49 show you how to recre­ate a paper mosa­ic that looks like bro­ken pieces of chi­na. This is cer­tain­ly anoth­er project of mine that is filled with dimen­sion­al objects. I guess I visu­al­ize in 3‑D as noth­ing looks fin­ished until items are pop­ping off the project. I find how peo­ple cre­ate and visu­al­ize very inter­est­ing. My dad carves incred­i­ble objects out of wood. He can carve just about any­thing you request includ­ing wildlife and peo­ple as well as loads of oth­er things. What I find fas­ci­nat­ing is he can­not even begin to draw a 3 cir­cled cat. My mom paints...

The sen­ti­ment “Home Sweet Home” can make you think of many things… spe­cial items in your home a spring gar­den and most impor­tant­ly those spe­cial peo­ple and pets.

Fun little game…

Apr 3, 2009

So I just fin­ished my 90th project for my book. This means I only have 10 more projects left to fin­ish. I thought it would be fun to give a Maya Road RAK to the per­son that comes clos­est to the date (with­out going over) of when I will com­plete my 100th book project. All you have to do is leave a com­ment with the date and the per­son clos­est will win the RAK.… if two peo­ple guess the same date Ans­ley will pick the lucky win­ner. Oh just so you know my final dead­line is May 5th. So don’t guess after this date. We are to the half way point in my Hip­pi­ty Hop East­er Work­shop. The last day for this work­shop is April 18th. If you want to join in and cre­ate...
