Altered dominos.


These are my latest altered dominos, the are so much fun to make. They are super easy, you first used alcohol ink on the back, then I glue the bail on. For the bail I used e-600 glue, then the fun begins. Once you have the image you want to use, I glued it on with glossy accent glue. While the glue is still wet I added the mini gears and micro beads. I did a You Tube on these. Give them a try, they would make great gifts, maybe as necklaces.

Mixed media spring series, two.


This is my second set of canvases in my new mixed media spring series. I'm having so much fun creating these. I'm using some of my new stencils and some brand new Lindy's strays, so much shimmer. My challenge behind the spring series is to try and keep them soft and shabby and still incorporating textures and lots of layers. I did a YOU TUBE on them, take a peek.
You know I really don't sound like myself on YT, I sound like I'm 13. Maybe I'm too close to the mike? But my voice is driving me crazy, lol. Now you know you're in trouble when your own voice is driving you nuts.

Ok so I had to try it for myself. It really works.


I got this idea of using avocado pit to tea dye from some of my friends on You Tube. The moment I saw it, I just knew I wanted to give it a try.You can find lots of Tutorials on YT, but after seeing Nery's excitement, I went for it.  Every fabric turned out a different shade of vintage pink. I think it depends of the fabric type. All cotton fabric absorbed the tea dye better, but I do like them all. If you're interested just search it on YT and you'll find lots of tutorials.
I think I want to try this again, maybe with other types of fabrics. It was a lot of fun and little scary because you don't know what you're going to get.

This is the gorgeous banner that she made for me, I will treasure it always.

Atcs from the sweet Eileen..

This gorgeous ATC I received from Eileen for the swap that I'm hosting over at my You Tube channel.  I'm in love with this ATC, the picture is not doing it justice but I did do a short video on it. I love her color scheme, I love that is vintage but with plenty of creams. The little shimmery lace on top is gorgeous. Thanks you Eileen, I love it.
This post is way over do, because I have a system to my posting, lol. I'm planning on spacing out my ATC from the swap. It all worked out because I'll get to thank Eileen for the new envelope punch board that I've been wanting for a while now. Thank so much Eileen, I love it.
