Shades of Blue

My niece Becca just graduated
a few weeks ago, but her party was just on Saturday,
in Naples, Florida...
sometimes it stinks to live so far away.
She received a scholarship to UCF and leaves for the dorms on the 23rd!

I made her a 12 x 12 shadowbox frame using two of her favorite colors.

Congrats to Miss Becca Johnson!

Mermaid 4 Blake

With all the wood we cut up
I have about 25 pieces to make stuff with!
So Jenna asked me to make a 12 x 12 frame
for her co-workers daughter.
The little girl, Blake, loves Ariel so this is what I came up with...

I used mod podge for the base under the sand, let it dry for a few days,
used 4 different blue stains from Tim Holtz, let that dry, sprayed it with hair
spray to try to keep the sand from falling off here and there, added stains to the rest of the 
frame, used some Lindy's mists and let that dry!
Once I felt the sand was set enough I added my charms with hot glue.
I colored my image (one of the images from on etsy) with 
Copics, glitter pens, then added versa mark and embossing powder
to make it hard and shiny.
I really wanted a shiny, watery look so I added some 
pouring medium in irredecent, some Acrylic Flow Release, 
and some Acrylic Glazing Liquid. 
Honestly I had no clue what was going to happen...
I just wanted a more watery look!
I think it worked out better than I thought it would.
Here is an up close tot he sand..
In person you can see the different colors a bit better.

Till next time!

I created this project for a very special person...
when I first started here at AZ Truck Outfitters (16 years ago)
there was a guy named Lou. 
He had a huge heart, loved God and his church, 
and could be a pain in my butt!
We became friends over the 12 years we worked together.
He passed away in January of 2011 leaving behind
his beloved niece Mary.

His birthday was Sunday the 7th of June,
so in remembrance I created this for Mary..

I used a piece of MDF board that my  hubby cut down for me.

This one is 10 x 10" and using Tim Holtz stains 
in about 7 different shades of browns, I ended up with this.
I added a liquid medium over the top to get it glossy.

Lots Of Canvas

Holy Cow!
I saw a project on Pinterest that I knew I had to make.
then time passed
and more time
And finally I decided to quit saying I was going to create it
and just do it.

So with out further ado...

I created the small 4 x 4 inch ones first

And did texture and color on each one.

 I used 4 heavy, thick 10 x 10" canvas placed at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock
and used regular 8 x 8" canvas in the corners.

You can see where I had to add another 8 x 8 under so 
we could attach them.

Here is my wonderful hubby stapling them together...
I also used hot glue on the front to make sure it
all stayed together!

 Here are some individual pictures of each canvas..

 I used poems and quotes to finish off the piece.
 Each family member is represented...even
the dogs.

 I really liked how this turned out.
 And I finally did I project from Pinterest instead of just pinning it!
