SUMMER IS COMING TO AN END...DIY PROJECT


I LOVE THE FALL COLORS AND THE COOL AIR IT BRINGS.
I HAD SOME WOOD FROM HARDWARE STORE I HAD CUT INTO 12 X 12 SIZE.




I STAINED IT FIRST WITH TIM HOLTZ WALNUT STAIN.
THAN I STARTED PAINTING THE PUMPKINS.
THEY WERE PRETTY EASY JUST MAKING C'S ON BOTH SIDES AND A LOT OF SHADING.  THE FENCE IS A SIZZIX DIE AND I ALSO USED TIM HOLTZ STRIP DIE FOR THE SMALL LEAVES.
I WAS SURPRISED HOW GOOD IT TURNED OUT...
TEE HEE GOES TO SAY JUST GO FOR IT IT'S JUST PAINT.

Y'ALL HAVE A GOOD DAY...

Vintage wedding Jewerly Box.

I have had my friends Mothers jewelry box that was from the 60's in my craft room for a while.  I was having a hard time deciding what to do with it for her.
Than one day I called her to ask if she would dog sit for me, she said sure but can I do her a favor.  I said sure what's up. well remember my moms box? "YES" I do. She asked me to make it for her new daughter-in-law as a wedding gift.  Now, I know what to do I thought.
I love how it turned out.


My friend gave me some of her moms jewelry to use.
I tried to make it look like she left it laying on the box.

   

some of my stash of flowers.



I added satin fabric all over the box and look at them feet. 
I  Love Tim Holtz embellishment's.


The inside has a photo of her parents, her with son and the brides parents.
For privacy reasons I blacked out some faces.





My Beautiful sweet friend.

Thanks for visiting.
Have a great Day

Mixed media pages and Tags.


I have had so much fun working in other creative Artist journals for a Round Robin 
I'm in over at Art Geeks ning sight hosted by Christy Sobolewski.  


This page I used Dina Wakley's paints.  I love how she has taken all the work out of 
color matching and the results I get using them.




I used the same paints here I used a chalk pencil to shade her in.


I always have extra paint so instead of wasting it Ill mop it up on tags or in my art journal.

thanks for visiting and if you like to see more on my blog 
please leave me comments.

thanks xoxo


Donna Downey "Paint like an Artest" class

 I did water color class here at my local scrapbook store with Donna Downey.
The canvas is a 10 x 14 but the one in the back ground is a 18x20 and I had already did that one. when I got home I put her on it and thought wow just what it needed.




DONNA, ME AND BILL.


This one we did with acrylics and I love it.

When Bona post she's doing a swap on her blog http://www.keeponscrappin.blogspot.com/
I jump on it. she is very talented and there's always a fun swap.
This swap was to make a ATC using a mini magnolia stamp, shabby chic style.
 

 
I used mini magnolia with wings.  The tree is a new sizzix die.

 
We also had to make a box for our ATC.
below is her video showing how to make the box.
 

 
Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Have a great
