Botanical Tea Layout

Hey lovely crafty people! Here today with a layout for Graphic 45. Goodness it seems i never do 
layouts these days! Even though i LOVE them! There are those of you who are masters of layouts, and 
i find so much inspiration from you! so thank you for that!!!!! I've always been a bit intimidated by them,
altering items comes so easy for me, but a sheet of empty 12x12 paper just waiting for me to do 
all the work scares me lol. Anyways I went with a soft vintage feel for this one, inspired by
the gorgeous picture i found online! I did lots of background work, but I kept it light so the paper was 
the true star. 
Make sure to check out the blog for more inspiring projects. Jane has a gorgeous layout! And a card share from on of G45's amazing followers! G45 has the most talented fans!
the half cut circles in the background are inspired by Joycekers Lawrence ( her blog is so inspiring). 
I used a few stencils with my Ingvild Bolme chalk edgers. I matched the colors to this gorgeous paper.
 I didn't use very many embellishments, the paper is just so pretty it didn't need it. I used some natural dried elements like spanish moss and sprigs of babys breath. Some chipboards from various companies. I really played off the circles from my frame.
This gorgeous lace is from Tresors De Luxe. Just about the prettiest lace ever!

Art Journaling Mixed Media

Hello lovelies! Here today with my first "just because" share in a LONG time~ as well as
a video tutorial too :) I wanted to try my hand at art journaling! However this ended up being so bulky 
i have to restrategize Lol. Maybe art journals are not for me! Its impossible for me to do "flat." 
Anyways it was a blast to create nonetheless! And this is the result! I did this for the Prima Marketing PPP this month. I love browns so it was perfect for me to try! Hope you all like it, and enjoy the video. 
Big hugs!

 I wanted to create a simple whimsical dress! No fuss, just easy and fun.
 I used a variety of inks, sprays, watercolors, acrylics. Anything I had that was the 
color scheme I wanted.

Well thats all for me! Hugs~!

Altered Sailboat for Graphic 45

Hello lovelies! Back today to share my latest project for G45. I had a blast creating this little sailboat using the Come Away With Me collection and a smidge of By The Sea. 
I have had this wooden sailboat in my stash for quite some time. All I did was trace the map shape out of the fabric sails that were already on it. Easy peezy. Hope you like what I have created :)
 And more importantly you MUST go check out the blog HERE  to see Nichola's AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING
 sky zeppelin ! I am in AWE of her creation. She is my crafty muse. I tell her all the time what a huge crush i have on her hehe! She truly is just phenomenal! 

 The propeller is an Ingvild Bolme junkyard finding.
I also fussy cut the globe out of the paper line, so my lady captain could know where she was going of course.
 I used a spool to make the chain holder for the anchor. The anchor is just cut out of the By The Sea paper. 
In the net I have resin starfish and a crab.
 I made a steering wheel (is that the same name on a boat? LOL) for her out of a Staples
metal key and an Ingvild Bolme junkyard finding. And she is of course the captain of this boat!
 The resin sea horse on the front of the boat (by Ingvild Bolme) was actually my honey's idea! He sanded it down to size for me too! HE's a genius :) And the port opening (Ingvild Bolme) has the man working down below !
 I loved making these sails out of the Come Away with Me paper! So fun!

An Eerie Tale Altered Typewriter

Hey everyone! Here today to share my latest project for Graphic 45 using my FAVE An Eerie Tale! 
I really love this little typewriter! I'm always scouring for things to alter, some are easy , this one was a bit harder. There were a lot of uneven surfaces i had to sand to be able to cover with paper. That usually the first question I ask when I see something that I want to alter, "Can I cover it with paper?" And as long as I can, its alterable to me Lol. No matter what it is. Anyways I did lots of fussy cutting and just had a blast making this one! I really hope you all like it, make sure to check out the Graphic 45 blog for Jane's amazing work as well today! Hugs!
