Pearls or Beads with ADfD

Hello! It's my second post today. That hasn't happened in a while, so please be sure to scroll down to my following post to see what I did with 2 pieces of PVC. But first, let me show you 2 projects I made for A Day for Daisies. The theme for the next 2 weeks is to "Add Pearls or Beads." One of my projects should have been up last week, but my little girl was sick, so I didn't have time to finish it for last Friday. So, that one doesn't have pearls or beads.

I colored this lovely mermaid (named Vintage Pink Lingerie) with my Tombow markers. And I created her background with a few different sprays and my Small Scales stencil from Stampendous.

I also added a sentiment from Stampendous, and lots of fabulous Burgundy glitter at the bottom of the tag. The ribbon is from May Arts.

Now, for my next project I was inspired by the negative print that I made with my stencil. I had already colored the mermaid, and I thought she'd look great with it.

I made a bookmark! I tore the stencil print in half and applied it to cardstock that I backed with cardboard. I spritzed some irRESISTables on it for shine and dimension, then sprinkled Burgundy glitter on top.

My sentiment is from the same set (called Wild Sayings) as the one that I used on the tag.

It was fun to coordinate these to projects together. I loved using these Mermaids! Please be sure to visit the A Day for Daisies blog to see even more fantastic projects! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Hop

This is a very exciting week for the Stampendous team! We are hanging out with the ultra cool Deco Art Mixed Media team, each using each other's products to share some incredible creations with you. These companies go hand in hand, so using each other's products is easy. And the results are amazing. We are of course featuring Andy Skinner's stamps, who is the DecoArt International Education Coordinator.  And yup, there are prizes! But I want you to go to the Stampendous Blog for all of that info. The link is at the bottom of the post. Now, on to my project. I made a cool wall hanging today. I started off with a piece of MDF and I drilled 2 holes, and covered it with DecoArt's white Gesso. After it dried, I used Andy's Alcohol and Media fluid Acrylics Layering Technique. You can check out his how-to video HERE . Needless to say, it's a great technique, and I loved doing it. Once I finished with the aforementioned technique, I sealed the piece w

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha . My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings ) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "
