My desks looks a bit dark as I forgot to lighten it when I was cropping the pic. But you can see that I'm getting my cards together for grand children and great grandchildren. There's a pack of Hershey bars on the far left under some cards, then a couple cards and a little treat box. There is also a bag of caramel candies which is going into the treat boxes. Oh, and a dark red coffee mug. I found some really cool stencils at Jo-ans pertaining to coffee and a special paint pen. I have 8 mugs that came with a couple sets of dishes that I'll decorate and sell. Stay tuned for that.
Last week I was telling you that I'd be gone most of the day learning a bit of mixed media. Oh my gosh did Judy and I have fun!! The kits gave us the link to a video on what to do but we switched things up a bit after seeing a photo from a friend and what she did. Here's my 3 houses.
Here's a close up of the stenciling with modeling paste, splatters, stamping, etc. We also used acrylic paint, glaze, and ink sprays.
We used sponges to add color to the white flower die cuts then dabs of glaze and glitter. I think we'll be making for of these. I originally was thinking of making these for a Christmas gift but they're staying on my shelf!
Ok, that's the end of my post today. Please remember to pop over to the Stamping Ground to continue on the tour. Grab your favorite drink and be prepared to spend of bit of time!
