I got down to my craft room for a bit last night!! I wanted to play with some of the goodies I just got from the fabulous Wendy at W2Scrapbooking! A couple of the Lindy's stamp gang items I ordered seemed to have very little in them but Wendy assured me that they are supposed to be that way as they are pure pigment and you need very little to get the colour. And boy was she right! I literally only used a few crystals with both the gel and modelling paste to get the colours I did. This is what I ended up with.


The left side is adding the colour South Shore Sand to modelling paste 
and the right side is the same colour mixed with soft gel.


And then I had extra of the modelling paste mixture so put it onto a canvas that I had started
 - it was painted with some great paint I got back in July after taking a class.


Another couple items I got in my latest order were some sprays  - called Stencil Sprayer. I got a few colours so tried them out on a few tags. I used copper, iridescent and silver. I like how they came out. Great backgrounds, or the start of anyway, to the tags I used them on!


When using these sprays I ended up with quite a bit left over on the stencils,and since I didn't want to waste the spray I flipped the stencils and added the leftover colour to a journal page I had already prepped. Again, another great start of a background.


And since I was working with my journals finally, I decided to use some of Stamperia Rice paper that I got from Treasured Memories.  It was kinda fun art journaling again - even if all I did was start the backgrounds. I have an idea on what I am going to do with the remainder of the page even!


I am looking forward to doing more crafting this weekend! So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

MORE GOODIES FROM W2SCRAPBOOKING


I know I have said this several times, but I am really going to miss my friend Wendy's store W2Scrapbooking when she closes down. But in the meantime, she has same AMAZING sales on at the moment, so if you are looking for supplies, make sure you check her out. And she is still so awesome - she gave me some great prizes for my crop that is coming up in a couple weeks! Check out my latest shopping spree!!


I cannot wait to play with this stuff. Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!

Got more goodies in the mail this week - like I said before, shopping for craft supplies and using them are two completely different hobbies for me!! LOL

Make sure you check out Scrap Addicts and Treasured Memories for their online stores (or visit them in person if you are in Edmonton!) They have great staff and do a fabulous job sending you what you want. Check out my latest goodies from both of them.


I cannot wait to play with all these things! Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

I actually got a few more crafty things done this weekend! I finished another project for my Canvas Corp Brands design team. I can't show it off yet as I have to wait till they post it, but I can give you a sneak peak. Can you guess what it is?!


And then at the end of the day last night I decided to work on a project for another Facebook group I am in. The fabulous Reneabouquets is having a couple contests on her facebook page and I figured I would enter them. This is the page that I did for the Under the Sea challenge. The picture is from our cruise in 2011 and is of the sunset as we left St. Lucia. As part of the contest we had to use items that come from her store and since I shop with her regularly this wasn't a problem. Of course it also prompted me to do more shopping! LOL. Hope you like the page - and I would love it if I won!!


I have more projects to work on - and I got more happy mail today too. So I will have more posts soon. Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!

Had a LOT of fun yesterday at the paint night that I organized. I was asked if the fabulous Mary from Messy Joys & Arts could teach us this fun ostrich painting that she found and of course she was up for it. We even got a few first timers come out to try it.



Started out doing the background


Then we did the baser for the head and then the neck



Then we added the feathers - and there were LOTS of feathers!!




Of course then we had to add the eyes and beak.


This is my finished painting - I love how it came out. So cute - and I am calling him GEORGE!!


One of the ladies hates getting her picture taking so she left before this, but it was a great group of ladies and we had so much fun! Till next time, stay crafty my peeps!!

While a LOT of fun was had this weekend when I was crafting in La Crete, we also got creative with our group photo! The organizer - my crafty pal Leona - had this neat idea to go outside of town a little ways to take our group photo as she knew someone with an antique truck and a nice barn that would serve as a great backdrop to the photo. And she was right - I mean how great do we look in this picture?!


We took the photo with our Creative Scrapbooker magazines that were donated to us for the crop so Leona will be submitting this to the magazine for a future issue.

I liked the look of the truck and barn so much that I also took a picture of it for myself so I can do a project with it later. I made it black and white as I think it will look great on a vintage project.


Not sure what I will make with this photo or when I will get a chance to do it, but I will make sure I share it when I do. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!
