My very own She Art girl

I have the best friends in the whole wide world! Before Christmas I hosted a Secret Sister swap over at PAO. Everyone received a name to shop for. Also included in the package there needed to be a handmade item.

Pam C. made this for me. I smile every time I look at it. You can bet it will be hanging in my craft room.

Happy New Year all!

My girlfriend asked me to make a present for her MIL using a photo of the kids.

Latest kit from Swirlydoos in hand I went to work.
All patterned paper is from BoBunny. I used Vintage Photo ink from Ranger to distress all the papers. Layered a bit of Prima packaging under the photo. Ribbon strips and Prima flowers to finish.

One of my favorite pictures of the 2 older ones. Taken on the coast of Maine.

The background is a piece of Bazzill card stock, sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist over a Tim Holtz mask and then splattered with Watercolor Paints.
The tag is from a swap several years back, but was perfect for this.

The letters are fabric covered with Watercolor Paints.

This layout was featured in the Sept issue of Scrapbook News and Review.

As always have a great day.

Christmas Proclamation

Gothic Arch I created for SNR 12 Days of Christmas. The step by step instructions are down the page.
This is a super easy one to do using up those scraps you have lying around. Add a layer of watered down gesso and a layer of ink and you have the perfect background.
Piece of muslin and image cut from Graphic 45 paper. Final touch of a ribbon and you have a beautiful tag to tie to a gift .

Have an awesome day.
