Relics Anyone?

Well I just finished an amazing project using Sandra Evertson Relics & Artifacts pieces.  Have you all seen them yet?  They are absolutely awesome pieces of cast resin, so beautiful are they, it was actually painful to paint over them.  But paint I did and this is what I came up with.  I hope you enjoy this 8x10 canvas of mixed media wonder.  I really fell in love with this one!

I started with an 8x10 canvas, covered it with Finnibair canvas piece and pieces, placed chicken wire with Art Basics 3D Gel Medium, I then put some stencil design with Art Basics Paste.  I used an old fork, wrapped with wire, bead and different metals that I got at Miriam Craft Source and attached all pieces and Prima Flowers with 3D Gel.  Once all pieces were where I wanted I added Lindys Paints to background.  Here came the painful part.....I had to find the exact color of sprays and paint to get that gunmetal look and sheen to the Relic pieces, nose, mouth and wings.  I think it came out perfect.

What do you think?  I would love to see your comments!! TTFN and have a great day!

A Little Zen - Scrapafrica Challenge

Hello everyone.  The challenge this month over at Scrap Africa Challenge was "Using a Pencil" in just about any way you would like.  From pencil shavings to make a flower to drawing and coloring.  You really need to check out what all the design team members have come up with and try the challenge for yourself.

For me? This is where it all started...Zentangle.  It is the most relaxing activity I know.  For just a few short minutes everything seems to just disappear and just the repetitive design seems to just take you away. There are lots of tutorials and books on Zentangle, try it, you just might like it.

 Have a great day!!!

Just a quick share of some mini file folder albums. You like?

I just loved making this blue one, the stamps are from Tim Holtz but the lovely face one the front is from my BFF in Germany, Rose. Definitely a favorite of mine!

Hope you enjoyed my little share. Have a great day!!!
