Merry Christmas

So it is Christmas night the presents have been opened, the dinner has been ate and now i have the need to craft but my craft room looks so clean since i have company coming.

 my craft room is never this clean and it is screaming "mess me up" but i won't but i really want to.  Instead this is what i worked on

 Lego winter Christmas house.  The house is about half built and the rest is tomorrows project.

But the last three days have been full of crafting since i of course left all my projects that were Christmas presents to the last minute.  9- 12x12 pages. Here is a sample

and the close up of the flames.  Chipboard flames that i inked with distress ink, blue, orange and red, then covered with glossy accents.  Really makes the color pop and has the added bonus of blending the color.

 next page i used a pattern paper i had and cut out arrows and arrows and layered them on the page rotating directions and adding wood chevron shapes.

close up of twine, i love twine like to add it to all my layouts.  Here i used the tim holtz brads with hoops on the end ( i don't know what they are called)  then connected them with twine.  i like it a nice little accent.

and finally this layout is a 3-D one i created for my frames at home- but of course i will probably never put them in but i always have good intentions.
created the background chevron, ripped and distressed the edges of the background sheet, then ripped a slit on top and added the rub ons in behind.  I like to add a ton of embellishments to my page, and those always have to include, metal, chipboard, and twine.  Here i created made a border around the picture and then added clutters on the corners.

and close ups

what's new

I have been busy the last couple months, but keeping up with my blog isn't one of them.  One of the most exciting updates is I FINALLY set up an etsy account.  My etsy shop will have patterns and instructions available to buy of past and present projects.  Also available will be any project kits which include instructions and products needed to create.


I only have 4 items for sale more will become available, here is a sneak peak up my upcoming project
Its all about texture, I love texture.  The idea is to have a layout with journaling tabs and a collage page with a fun funky cover.  I am about half done, now just to find the time to finish.

Also for your viewing pleasure here are some of my latest 12x12 layouts.  Please use for your inspiration.

finally I have also finished two paintings
