Friday fun

As I am so busy with doll making and bags and art journals....I took a few minutes this morning to play.
I love the paper that Crate and Barrel wraps your glass items in. Sometimes I will buy a few small glass kitchen things for a couple dollars just to get a big wad of the paper. It's stronger than tissue but not as thick as packing paper.
 I sprayed the paper with spray inks and used stencils for the designs, then stamped over with rubber and clear stamps.

 I also used some Gelato's for extra color
Here I used a heart stamp for negative and positive images.
And topped it off with a cute Suzi Blu stamp.
Nuture Creativity!
And now I have to clear the yard and prepare for Sandy's arrival.
Have a safe and artful weekend!

Another "good thing"

 These are the breast pockets I made and sent to Melanie Testa for her project.
Did you make one? There's still time.

The other project I did this week was make a fabric postcard for Pokey Bolton's project at the Houston quilt show to raise money for a no kill animal shelter called Friends for Life.
The postcards sell for $20. and all the monies go to the shelter.
I figured a lot of peeps would make cats and dogs so I made a bunny. He is a little stressed out.

That's about it for this week.
Have  great weekend and remember....
What you
doesn't have to be

a good thing

This is a breast pocket I made for Melanie Testa's Breast cancer project. It's in honor of my Aunt Claire who succumbed to the nasty disease many years ago. Yep, I misspelled her name but we all know who she is .I am so  not a morning person.....
Anyway I am spreading the news. Melanie needs 1000 of these pockets so if you want to help go to
