Wooden Clock by Angela

Today I have for you a Wooden clock, decorated using the papers from my warehouse box from Prima. The box I got was packed full of goodies and in amongst it were some wonderful papers which as usual I didn't want to give away (we have all been there I'm sure) so I decided to use them to decorate my clock with.

Home in California a mini album by Melissa

Hi Melissa here today with a mini album using Gina's Designs Lasercuts.  The photos are from a home I once had in Northern California. The chipboard was painted with gesso, then I applied chalk ink.  I put on a coat of glossy accents to complete them.
The first photo you see when you open the album is my cat Bosley running toward me when I whistled to him.   I could never see him till he showed up running. The second photo is Bosley in one of his favorite spots in the sun to sleep. To me he almost looks like he's glowing,the sun is so bright on his white fur. The last photo is what the view was  when I was  in the living room.

I really enjoyed making this project.  Thanks for looking!

Shuttered Window Frame by Nancy and Photo Reel by Veronica

Hi everyone!  We have two projects to share today.  First up is Nancy with a home decor item.

Hi, Nancy here!  Today I'm sharing this shuttered window frame by Gina's Designs.  This gorgeous piece is so versatile, and can be decorated to go with anyone's decor and style.  I decided to decorate mine in a vintage beach theme with old family photos of my Mom, my Brother, and Myself.  We spent most of our Summer days at Crane's Beach in Ipswich, MA., and those memories are among my favorite from my childhood.  I tried to invoke those feelings of tranquility when I created this, and to recreate the scene as I remember it.  Thanks for looking!

Beach Shape Set

Next up is Veronica sharing an adorable wall decor project she created using one of our large sized Photo Reels.

Hello Again! Veronica here to show off another fun and truly simple project from Gina's Designs!
The Photo Reel brings me back to when I was a little girl, when my first love of picture taking began.
These are now coming back into the art world, and I have to admit I still have some of these in my parents attic somewhere packed away. That will be a treasure hunt adventure to find!
I chose to work with the Page Frame Photo Reel which is large enough to be the focal point on a 12 x 12 layout or canvas.  I wanted to make a wall hanging to display my love of black cats. The Photo Reel comes in three other sizes, standard, small and miniature.
"Pawprints on my heart", you can find in Gina's Words & Phrases.
Not much to complete this project....gotta love simple!
I just covered the Photo Reel with a thin layer of White Acrylic paint, and then inked the edges and the Pawprint phrase with Archival Ink's Jet Black.
I then sprinkled with black glitter.
Love the simple way I can display all my Black Kitty photos.

A little bit of Spring, some fun with Heidi

Hi everyone, Heidi here!   This week I thought I would make a little Spring project that will also fit for this weekend's Easter celebration.   I had these candy tubes and of course some jelly beans and they fit so well with the dangling spring sentiments and embellishments in the spring shape set over at Gina's Designs.  

I painted all the pieces first with adirondak paints and then used a speckled stamp for the umbrella and an eraser for the boot!  Aren't they cute?  I just attached them to the ribbon and they hang down like charms.  :)

Scrapbook Layout by Marfa and another Wall Art Key by Shanna

First up today is Marfa with a meaningful layout she is calling "Funky Colors"

Good morning crafty friends!  I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend.  Today I want to share with you a simple scrapbook layout, but it means a lot to me.  The hands that you see in the photos belong to my mother and me.  We get our nails done every couple of weeks.  It's one way in which I pamper my mother, who is totally selfless and never does anything for herself.  My mom is someone who always thinks of other people first.  If she knows you're in need she offers to help even before you ask, so every couple of weeks I take her with me and we get our nails done.  

When I received my design team package from Gina's Designs and I saw this  Pallette and Brushes Set I knew right away that I wanted to use it on this layout.  I simply colored them with acrylic paint and a sharpie marker.  I added Crackle Accents to the bristles of the brushes, just for fun.  I also liked the idea of using flowers for the "paint" on the palette. 

Gina's Designs Supplies:  Pallette & Brushes Set

Other Supplies:
Webster's Pages paper: Clean and Simple Sunday Picnic Pedal Pushers
Acrylic Paint
Prima Flowers: Perles Romance Novel
Crackle Accents
Free Printable Project Life embellishments

Next up is Shanna with another of the Wall Art Keys that the team has been decorating this month.

Hey everyone!  Shanna here today to share with you a wall art piece. I had so much fun playing with the key. My thought was to make it an inspirational piece. 

"The key is to treasure the voyage."

First I painted everything black. Then I decided to paint the balloon along the lines of teal and vintage metals. 

I then altered the gears by doing a layer of gesso, layers of Twinkling H20's and then adding some Glass Bead Gel, completing the gears some Tattered Angels Paints. 

The base of the key got a layer or Croco Paint giving it that old metal rusting off look. Then I finished off the key with metal flowers and some chit chat pieces.

Altered Door Hanger "Art Heals" by Kim

Hello Everyone and happy Friday! Today I would like to share with you the new Door Hangers we have in Gina's Store.  These are made from very heavy duty chipboard, and are great for mixed media work, as they will hold up really well. I have created this Door Hanger for my Craft room, hence, the Art theme.
Below here you can see I have also used Gina's new Art Pallette for the focal point of the piece. I just love this little palette, it comes with 2 chipboard brushes and one pallette knife which you can also alter. I have chosen more mixed media supplies to alter mine, and it was a lot of fun. I then added some wooden letters to spell out ART and some of Gina's Dressform Wings which I embossed in black. 
Here you can see a close up of the chipboard brushes and palette knife, to which I added my texture paste, sprays and paints. I then added a feminine touch with some flowers and vintage lace. I used the Hanging clock in the background and added another one of the Steampunk Wings to the side to finish it off.
I used more flowers, some metal corners and some laces from my stash to give it a complete look and now it will hang on my craft room door with pride.
I hope you like what I have created for you today!
