More Ink Techniques

I finally finished the distress ink technique tags for March 31st class.  This is a fun and simple technique and of course it's messy which makes it really fun to do :-)

Below are photos:

I have one more technique to finish.  I'm making book marks out of the alcohol ink technique.  Here's a photo of them so far now I just need to embellish.

Until next time enjoy your day...

March Craft Class - project 1

Hi Everyone,
I came down with something on Friday and had to cancel my craft class.  I'm on the mend but not 100% yet! :-(

Below is one of the projects for this month's craft class.  This technique is the crinkle ink technique and I made it into the mini album.  Of course my topic was belly dancing ;-)

You will be learning more ink techniques on tags and glossy paper and if I get my act together I will have them posted before class. 

Below are photos of the crinkle ink technique; sorry I forgot to turn on my flash so they are a little dark.

Enjoy your week...

I Won!!!!

I'm so excited I won the card competition today!!!  My to-go coffee cup card won the "I Need Coffee" category!

To think I almost didn't enter the card competition this time; I'm so glad my friends talked me into entering.

The next stamp convention will be November 3rd & 4th.  The categories will be Under the Sea and Chinese Art.

Mesa Arts Center Mini Albums Class

This Tuesday will be the mini albums class at the Mesa Arts Center. 

You will be creating 3 albums that are not so mini :-)  We will be using 45 records to create a book style album, an album record to be displayed on the wall or in a plate stand and the CD holder is a great gift to give to someone special.  We will be creating a cover to hold a CD that contains music or family photos. 

No need to bring photos if you don't have a them in mind for your albums; you can add photos later.

Below are photos of 2 of the projects we will be making in class.

I had a photo shoot and my photographer gave me a CD of all the photos from the day.  I created this CD cover to house the CD and placed photos from some of the pictures from the day to decorate the holder.

The album is of my two puppies Nitro and Blue.  Behind each photo is journaling of the photo.

Hopefully I will have photos of the 45 record album up before class.

Enjoy your week and hope to see you in class...
