First up today is Shanna to share a very cool and beachy project!
Welcome!!! Welcome!!! Welcome!!!
Shanna here sharing a super fun and amazing project I recently created.
I used to be a beach bum and was at the beach daily, but where I live now the beach is 3 hours away!!!
I have sworn to bring the beach to my home, and so far my fireplace mantle and one bathroom has been beached out! Now for the powder room. I decided to create this specifically to decorate my powder room so people have something to gaze at besides a sink.
The memory tray got a couple coats of a cream colored acrylic paint and the chipboard pieces got a coat of gesso.
After the gesso on the chipboard dried I added some glass bead gel and color by spray or chalk ink.
Yes there must always be rules even if they are just for having fun!
Next up is Marfa, with simple to create, but beautiful cards for Mother's Day.
Good morning, sweet face! I am so happy to finally be able to show you the two Mother's Day cards that I made this year! I usually make only two Mother's Day cards each year, so I try to make them very special. Let me tell you a little secret. Come here...closer...cccllloooosssseeerrrr... for the longest time this year I just couldn't get my card making mojo going. BUT I knew one thing for sure. I wanted to use the chippie roses that I got in my design team package from Gina's Designs. I really fell I love with these roses at first sight.
After a while of frustrating trial and error I realized that I was actually fighting the changes within my style. I just couldn't get excited about making something really complicated and busy because I have been changing towards clean and simple for a quite a while already. So I did something really simple. I painted the chipboard pieces with a gold paint pen, except for the butterflies. I used a red paint pen for those. Then I covered them with a glitter pen for a big, in your face glitterfying! I also covered the butterflies and the little heart with Crackle Accent. Why? I don't know, just because. One rub on sticker and one clear sticker finished everything. I used matte photo paper and a glittery mulberry paper to make the card itself. Its hard to glue things to mulberry paper, so I used hot glue and that worked very well. Scroll down for a short video and a list of supplies.
