Surf and Sand Mini Album!

Is it summer yet??? Well it's not really even close here in the high Rockies, but a girl can dream, right?

I found these adorable little canvas bags at Target and wanted to use them to make some kind of one of a kind mini album. So with some wood pieces as spacers I used a super easy Japanese Binding technique to make them into a book.

 A little gesso on the pages and I was ready to go! It doesn't get much more beachy than Coral Sorbet Paint & Waimea Bay Colorations Spray! :) Then add a few drips and spritzes of Warm Colorations Spray gives it that warm and cozy- been around awhile- look!

Here's the tutorial I made!

Make your own rust effects with Art Anthology!

I'm here today to share my project inspired by our moodboard over on the Facebook group page, Art Anthology Adventures in Art!

This month’s board features some awesome rusty objects! If you haven’t played along yet, what are you waiting for!? 🙂

I’ve heard of other companies having mediums that look like rust, so naturally I had to see if we could make our own with Art Anthology products! Turns out, I only had to add one ingredient to some paint……and it was sand!

With a combination of “sandy” Kenyan Copper Sorbet and Radiance Minx Shimmering Ink I was able to come up with something that looks pretty darn close! 🙂

I made a Snapguide tutorial for this project!

Inspirational Butterfly Canvas

Today I have a pretty project to share with you. I’m loving these three simple colors together!

Inspired by these happy little wood words, this canvas was cute, quick, and easy.  I just love the combination of textures!

As usual, here is a Snapguide tutorial for this project! Give it a try!

Summer Colors Embroidery Hoop!

It’s not even spring here in the Rockies, but I was the feeling the sun shining with this project!!

To create something I could use for a layout, but be a little different, I dug an old embroidery hoop out of my stash.  Brighten up any space…all i need is to choose a photo! 🙂

A little Brick Stone Effects brightened my bubbles texture, and some Indulgence Minx Ink softened it to perfection.
Filling in the blanks with some Glorious Colorations spray looks like sunshine!

I used some Pixies sorbet to and my blossom stencil for some awesome texture.

Here's my snapguide tutorial!!
