Well it took me most of the day, but I finally got one project done.  That is after helping Mallory wash all 3 dogs in the sweltering heat and spot cleaning on the deck some more.  I think I finally have it where it needs to be and ready for Mr. Stodgy to waterproof in the morning.  I spent 2 days pressure washing the entire deck . . . love that pressure washer . . . YES I do!

After starting one or two cards, trying some techniques here and there, I finally ended up with a small wall hanging.  I’ve been playing with a new flower, some I made for CHA, and wanted to try another today.  This one is made with Spellbinders™ Blossom Three.


Before assembling the flower, each edges of each layer were inked with Jasmine Mix’d Media Inx, misted with water and shaped.


The paper is My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found – Sunshine.  That flourish is a new die, S5-143 Jewel Flowers and Flourishes.  The base for the hanging is made from printer’s chipboard that was die cut with Labels Eight, 4 different times and clued together.  The holes at the top were punched with my ever faithful Crop-o-dile.  For the hanger itself, I used black Artistic Wire winding it around with the Artistic Wire Coiling Gizmo.

I guess that’s all for me right now.  I’m heading back into the studio and to watch the Olympic Trials.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Tuesday!  I hope your holiday weekend was a good one . . . we had Mallory’s Graduation Party on Sunday and then spent yesterday recuperating from all the prep work we had to do.  It was nice to sit on my butt all day and watch movies.

When I was prepping for my classes at The Queen’s Ink, I found that I was going to have a number of Graphic 45 doorplates left over from the Chunky Tag.  I remembered a project that Nicole Eccles had posted and sent her an email asking her if she minded if I used a variation for my class.  I couldn’t find the project of Nicole’s blog, but I did find it at Retro Café Art.  Thankfully Nicole said it was okay and I began ordering product to sample.

Here’s what I came up with . . . using a different Shrine Kit from Retro Café Art.


This was a fun project to make and hopefully everyone in the class will enjoy it as much as I did!

That’s it for me today, except . . . to say thank  you to everyone who left encouraging comments on my last post.  I didn’t realize there were that many of us all thinking the same things!

Thanks for stopping by and remember to enjoy the adventures that come your way today!
