It's getting Dark earlier

Speaking of Dark How about something darkly spooky?




Our October Partner Art Anthology has made creating such a fun time!


Day 26 of the 31 Days of Halloween

Hi it's Jean and here is a fun project that will have people screaming happy screams!


I used an ATC size card and coated it with Art Anthology Terra Cotta velvet paint.  I then stamped a background with Delicata Silver.   Then I stamped a tree and skeleton head with Black Versacolor ink.   I used a scrap of G45 paper for trim and doodled the edges with my Gold Gel Pen.   Fun and easy to do....

I love making magnet gifts here are some more I made.  I give them to everyone as a little treat!   Hairdresser, nurses, massage therapist and in hostess gifts.   Graphic 45 papers, ATC cards, bling and cupcake papers!   Add the MAGNET to the back and VOILA!



Stay tuned for our Giveaway and more fun too come!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle. Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today. One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer ab
