Art Is Heart Acrylic Mixed Media Clipboard

Hello friends, and welcome Monday (not really LOL)

I have a fun NEW CHA release to share again, a brand new 
Clear Scraps Acrylic Clipboard that I turned into a Mixed Media Art piece 
for my crafting room. Really I just wanted to experiment with some
mediums with the Mascils. 
So I found out that if you want to use water based acrylic crackle paint
which I use reg acrylic paint on acrylic all the time no problem but the 
crackle paint flies off into a million pieces, so you have to seal it when you put it on WET, 
then I added more paint because of all the flaking, but in the end
I love it! :) 
 I did the Bokeh with the Krylon spray paints again only this time I 
did it all on the back in layers! :) 
 Then added the texture to the front and embellishments. 
It's girl and love-y like me...
I love art and everyone who creates it is just beautiful working with
their hands and creativity, so it's all good people!!!

Welcome Monday! :)

Pastel Spring Card- Stamping Fun With AA

Well HELLO Friday! I LOVE YOU...
I need Friday this week, how about you?

I had fun stamping in pastel colors with the new
A Latte Love stamps from Avocado Arts and a 3 color ink pad. 

For this card I wanted to stay simple and let the stamping pop 
so I used a simple white linen card then added  Little B Notes 
on the bottom that I trimmed off then just stamped my heart out! :) 
Beautiful set of stamps.

Happy Friday friends!!! Thank YOU for stopping by.

BEE Mine w/ Avocado Arts And Krylon

Good morning friends, 

Have I mentioned how happy I am to be back with Avocado Arts? 
I have another card today I created with some cute bees flying around. 
 This is a Bendi Card shape for my Silhouette and I used some Little B 
flowers on it. The stamps are of course Avocado Arts!
And the card stock? Guess what? It's all the same color, 
but I spray painted it to coordinate with KRYLON! Love that stuff. 
Makes me crafting so much easier if I don't have the exact color I need
I just go paint it and add texture too. 
Check out the awesome stamps:

Our Home Acrylic Clipboard

Hey there friends, I am BACK FROM CALI! 
And back from CHA. Honestly I did not take too many photos it was a busy
whirlwind trip. My favorite part of my trip was hearing Jim tell me how he met 
Susan (Frase from Clear Scraps) and share their stories. 
Also meeting gals I had never met before and old friends of course. 

Angela and I- old buds from an icy hotel stay to warm CHA!
 Susan and I. 

 Here was the Beacon booth, you know I love Beacon! :) 
 And the restaurant we went to the last night! :) 
Anyways I had fun and met up with so many sweet uplifting spirits. 
And two sweet ladies who allowed me to bunk with them!
I have a new nickname  "Pink Angel" I will tell you about that later on. 

BUT in the meantime this is my project for the CME Kit Club and it's
one of the newest Clear Scraps Acrylic Clipboards that are actually in the kit!
I spray painted the back with Metallic Gold Krylon spray paint, then
I added pearls to the front edges. 
After that I spray painted the flowers in the kit to match in Metallic Gold
Krylon and Coral. 
Then I used a Clear Scraps Mascil to spray paint the front 
using Coral Krylon. 
And the edges of the BLESSED card 
Here is is all assembled. I love this one! :) 
You can paint anything to match and I love the versatility of the clipboard.
See you all tomorrow I have projects to share! :) Happy Monday.

Pets Are A Blessing NEW CHA Design Bokeh Style!

Brand new for 2015 these cool Word Boards are a fantastic
design from Clear Scraps the year. 

I used Clear Scraps Mascils and Krylon Spray Paint to create a sort of 
"Bokeh" style design in the background. 
 By overlapping the stencil it created this out of focus look.

I had fun making it, I cannot wait to create more of these boards!
Wat do you think of the new designs so far?? I love them!

Faith Bookmark

Hello Tuesday and hello friends, 
Today I chose to share this bookmark I created using the CME January Kit.
I took the Clear Scraps Expression FAITH from the kit and spray painted it
using metallic gold and coral spray paint. 
 Then I trimmed out two pieces of patterned paper to fit
just around the word Faith. 
 I adhered them together. 
 Then added the acrylic sentiment and a ribbon. 
I think I will send it to now of my more religious friends. 
Unique and pretty for the book at hand. 

Happy Tuesday :)

New Year- Live With Gratitude (Tutorial)

Happy New Year my friends, 
it's time to begin anew with a fresh start and why not start with art therapy?

This mini album I created was made using the brand new 
Creating Made Easy January Kit! WOOT! Love this kit. 
It has so much goodness and was so beautiful to work with. 
I started by spry painting the pages in alternation coral and gold paint
(Krylon of course). 
 And I took the paper flowers from the kit, and spray painted them too!
How cool is this soft look of spray paint on them? They almost look real. 
 I layered the flowers with a button, then added the title cards from the
Teresa Collins paper included in the kit. 
 On each page I added a 4X6 matte using the patterned paper, I love
the patterns in this paper. 
 Each page I added 2 flowers and a button then some of the stickers included. 
I bound it together with some beautiful Ribbons Unlimited Ribbon I had to make it pop. 
 Everything except the buttons, ribbon, and paint were from this fabby kit!
