Lunar Eclipse: DCWV Collaboration with Imagine


Hello! The Imagine team was given various papers from different DCWV collections. I was given Zodiac, which is really an outer space/lunar set. Gorgeous blues, purples, and holographic papers with wonderful starry patterns. Needless to say, this collection was right up my alley.

I had taken a photo of the lunar eclipse that occurred back in September of 2015 with my cell phone, through my mom's telescope. I absolutely love this photo, and I knew that these papers would highlight it perfectly.


I cut out a few circles in a variety of sizes from DCWV's Brights Collection. Then I sprayed my craft mat, blew on the spray a little and tapped the circles into the color. Here, I am using Tuxedo Black, but I also did this with Paris Blue. For the gray circles, I used Sheer Shimmer Frost.

I sprayed Sheer Sparkle Shimmer to the background paper and to the cut out circles, for some extra sparkle. I dribbled a little Sheer Shimmer Frost in the background paper as well.

This pretty ribbon from Creative Impressions has a glimmer to it, so it was perfect for grounding all of my pieces and for adding even more sparkle. I attached it with my On Point Glue. The words and geometric design on the lavender paper is holographic too.

I used my PITT pen to just write my title and date the photo was taken. I wanted to keep the words and numbers to a minimum.

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…
