Rolled Edge Album.

 Rolled Edge Paper Bag Album. Trying something different...saw an album on Pinterest with this same thought I would give it ago. I didnt understand the directions for it so I just flew by the seat of my pants and this is what I came up with and it seems to work pretty good. lol  I had to use my new paper pack 75 cents by Kaisercraft. love it. It has a good variety of shiny and matte papers, beautiful papers...cant get enough of them! yum.
 I didnt want to cover up some of the papers with more papers for photo placements so I just added tabs...there is a tag in the corner too . A large pocket page on the other side with a popped out frame where another picture can go, with cut rolled flowers adorning it.  Large tag for journaling, would be fun to get a white journaling pen for this one!
 Another page i just couldnt cover shiny a pop they bring.  A small pocket page with a tag I have been hording from an eco africa the roughness of it.
 Small photo placement with a little flap to put the picture behind...large tag pocket with tag.
 Yummy embossed floral pretty again with photo tabs. Another photo placement page with large tabs and scalloped edge to fit picture behind. All pages have machine stitching.
The last pages with more yummy papers, with tabs and tags. just love the papers. This album has been sold! Im so blessed to have a friend who appreciates my work! Please stop back again and see what I come up with next..I have 2 projects I will be needing to get done for special orders here soon, will post when I am done! Thanks for stopping by.

Real....Mixed Media Art Piece.

I find that pinterest has alot of interesting things to find on its site. I have found great recipes, great decorating ideas, cute animals, lots of art and super super quotes! This quote I found last week and it really just hit me in the heart. I LOVE this quote. It is ME. It explains so much to me...
I took a watercolor paper and drew up my design idea after putting on the quote. using scrapbook paper scraps, in pinks and browns I covered the page , and her dress. I painted the girl with acrylics and I decided to make the wings by using my modeling paste and my art trowl so its a fun texture and really looks like feathers.  I took an old frame from the thrift store and pianted it white. Think it makes the painting pop and the wings really pop. I hope you like my new piece!

New Mixed Media Coffee Canvas!

new mixed media canvas. I love me a cup of cappuccino! So I had to make this canvas! I started out mod podging definitions out of an old dictionary for coffee, java, can see one pretty good at the top of the page on the right side. I used lots of color with acrylic paints, and some ink. using a piece of paper cut to fit inside the cup, I used modeling paste and swirled it around like the foam and let it dry. Then I added some paint to make it look even more like the foam! Using a coffee mug I dipped the bottom in coffee colored paint and pressed it on the canvas.  Adding a cute saying and a pretty butterfly! I hope it sells!
