Step into my gypsy parlour!

I'm up on the CCB Blog with my latest creation - a gypsy parlor!

Come see what I used for the parlour and how I put it altogether! And don't forget to shop - from Architextures to Glimmer Mists to 7Gypsies paper!


I see right through you

Summer's heating up - thank that big ol' fire ball in the sky! But summer also invokes beautiful colors, like a sunset or fresh flowers or even the iridescence of summer bubbles your kids are blowing through their bubble wands.

And it inspired me to create a different sort of tag...

I've always wanted to do a plastic tag but I didn't want it to be a regular old thing. I cut it into a square shape with a wavy edge at the top. And then had some fun with the heat gun!

I wanted it to have a sense of movement and shape - definitely not just flat. And my Lindy's sprays and shakers had some hills and valleys to run in. I used Witch's Potion Purple and Bachelor Button Blue sprays & Yodeling Yellow and Lederhosen Laurel shakers. I went around the edges with Obviously Black EP for contrast. I decided to add the word Joy - the colors and sun look peaceful and serene. 

I stamped my sun face and drew around it with a paint pen - he looks like he's melting somewhat. And I used all the Lindy's colors on a piece of string for a tie dye effect.

The heat gun really created great warps & shape as well as movement & pooling with the colors. It's a simple tag that packs a punch without being overloaded - the colors and warps speak volumes.

Since I'm talking about Lindy's, I'm entering this in their July challenge.

And I'll give it a whirl at Scrapki-wyzwaniowo for their Sun challenge

AND the Mixed Media Place June challenge which is all about summer as well!


Under the sea decor piece

I've got a new post on the EyeConnect Crafts blog that's really fun!

I used a puzzle board as the base and Lindy's Gang sprays for beautiful underwater shimmer and sparkle! Come check out my post to see how I created it - the totem octopus is awesome looking and so much fun to play with!

I'm also entering this at Rhodes Creative Spirit!


Ice cream, you scream...🍦

The Apocalypse  Summer is here and the temps are melting my face delightfully warm. So.....who wants some ice cream?!

I'm slowly filling up my CCB art journal with collages and vignettes of my favorite authors and artists as well as just plain old fun stuff. I'll post the whole thing when I'm done but for now - enjoy a sweet treat!

Ice cream everywhere - and some splashes of Tattered Angels Kiwi and Pink Coral glimmer mists & black and pink Uni paint pens. It's a fun page but it's given me some serious cravings... 🙄

Just for fun, I'm entering this at Mixed Media Place for their summer challenge.
