DTBST #201 Happy Halloween!
This weeks DTBST is
Happy Halloween!
We need to make Halloween Projects!
Being today is Halloween,
that is just about perfect!
Here is what I made using the latest
From Hocus Pocus!
My papers are from a Martha Stewart pack (I think) LOL
I added some distress paint in a splatter
and added the RIP tombstone.
The thread looking piece is actually a runner I found in the Halloween
section at Target. I figured it would work in place of cheesecloth
or gauze...and it did. I got it for $2.00 and it is huge!
I colored Miss Sanderson with Copics,Prisma markers and stickles.
Make sure you check out the other DT's projects
as well as enter the challenge on the blog!

DTBST #199 Support Your Team!

Depending on when you read this..
I may just be on a plane heading to Knoxville Tennessee!
I am meeting my sister to have a few days of fun!
But first my DTBST project!
This week the theme is Support Your Team!
WIth football happening, the World Series just around the corner
what better way than to make a project using your teams colors!
You can even use your high school colors.
In my household we are The Patriots and the 49ers for football
and the Red Sox for baseball...
I went red, white and blue for my card.
I used Birthdaycake Sassy.
Colored her with copics and spica pens.
I kept it simple but like how it turned out!

More Mixed Media

A few more projects that I have been working on...
Here are two vases that I painted.
The first is colored like a sunflower that I will add sunflowers to and give
to my daughter for her room...
I used metallic paints..I wish the bottom could have
been photographed better but it just would not show up how it really looks.
Here is one that is supposed to be like a burning flame...
There is actually a lot more difference in looks in person!

Keeping Me Busy

I have been pretty quiet this year!
I know I set out to be more blog friendly but never ended up doing what
I said I would! LOL
I am trying to make up for it now.

I have been creating a few mixed media projects...
these two are for a friend of mine daughters.


I made an 8 x 10 frame...
the image is printed on canvas and watercolored using inktense pencils.
I added rhinestones, stickles and metallic paint.
Then I used a sponge and added paint to the frame.
The inside mat is made with DCWV glitter paper.


Again I water colored the image after printing on canvas paper,
added stickles, rhinestones, smooch ink, and tinsel glitter (wings).
the frame has been not only painted but then spritz with tinsel colored spray.
Both of the images I bought from
