So I had to get some swaps done this weekend - I started of with making an altered canvas. And this one is going all the way to Pakistan! It is also going to be my November design team post. So I won't share the whole thing now, but here are some sneak peaks.

Had a good start to my weekend. I went to another paint night - this time hosted by Chinchaga Adult Learning Centre. It was a lot of fun. I think I am getting better at this painting thing too - it was a lot of fun and it seemed to come pretty easy. Natalie was also a good teacher. Check out my new painting!


This was what we got when we got to class - a black canvas and some paint


We used the blue in several shades to make the background  and the vase. We then used white for the first layer of the flowers - to make sue they didn't disappear into the black background. I have to say I was quite happy with the flowers I made. I am getting better at this drawing thing!


And this is the finished painting. I really like how it came out. This was a totally fun event.

So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

I was so tired from my weekend I realized I forgot to post a few things! As well as the other projects I posted before, I also got a couple tags done. These were ones I had started I have no idea when - I have been dragging them around for awhile waiting for a chance to finish them. Very happy with how they turned out!



Not to mention, I forgot to show the prize that I won! I posted it to Facebook and then realized - DANG my parents are gonna see this! LOL But what can I say, it was that kinda weekend!!


So till next time - stay crafty my peeps!

The other project I got finished this weekend was my design team project for Mixed Media Mojo Challenges. The theme this month was haunted with the twist of zombies. This is what I came up with.


The technique I used for this tag was wrinkling a paper bag that I then attached to the tag, then painted orange. Once the paint was dry I brushed the entire tag with black ink. Finishing touches were adding the chipboard zombies and the words. A fun and easy tag for this months project!

And the best part? The chipboard pieces are from a Canadian company called Southern Ridge Trading Co. Make sure you check them out!!

So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

CRAFT N' SCRAP WEEKEND In GRIMSHAW - DAY 3


I cannot believe how much I actually got done at this crop! Even on the last day - which is only a few hours and mostly taken up with visiting. I got this layout done.


It was really a fun weekend. One of the things the organizers did was give us all a puzzle piece that everyone decorated as they saw fit. Then the put it together and gave it away as a final prize. I didn't win it, but it sure turned out great!


But then it was time to pack up and leave. SAD! :(


But I did have a blast with my posse!!



So another crafty weekend came to an end. Now I have to sort everything and get myself organized for the croptacular in two weeks. Not to mention get some swaps I am in finished. Gonna be a crazy few weeks. So till next time, stay crafty my peeps!

CRAFT N' SCRAP WEEKEND IN GRIMSHAW - DAY 2


So, day two of our crop was as much fun as day one! These gals really know how to have a good time. I got my big Moleskin A3 journal started - Paula and I worked on it together, but since it had to have so much drying time, didn't get much done on it. But I did get it broken in!


And of course, we had a LOT of fun, considering that they gave us all wine!!!


We made ours into spritzers. Yummy!!!


And the group photo turned out so cool - the fall colours made for such a fun photo.


I - of course - had to scrap this!!


I got quite a bit done too - I can't show one project as it is for a contest, but here is some of the other stuff I got done day two:


It is easy to scrapbook my grand kids when they are so stinking cute!!


And I did more work on the ATC's I started at the PMS crop. I prepped them first - and then check out the ones I finished.






All in all, a pretty fab say! We really had a blast! So till next time and more adventures, stay crafty my peeps!
