How to decorate your deflecto Caddy Organizer with Gel Press prints

Happy Monday everyone! Over the weekend I decided to do a little spring cleaning in my craft room. I reorganized a few things and added some stamps to my destash site. One of the items that got a new purpose was my Deflecto Caddy Organizer. Before, I used them for some of my tools which meant that I couldn’t close the lids entirely. Now I have all of my cheap Distress Paints and the Finnabair Metallic and Opal paints in there. These fit perfectly and while I was moving them into their new space, I thought that the caddy needs…

Strawberry Jude Stamps Awesome Memes with Copic coloring

Hello and welcome back to a whole lot more awesomeness. These two tea-sipping ladies from the Awesome Memes stamp set still crack me up and every time I look at them I have to giggle, lol. This time I wanted to use both of them, so I created a card with both facing each other and a fun dialog between them. I wanted the coloring to be simple and elegant, so I decided to use Copic markers. You can follow me along in my latest video: As you can see my coloring is rather simple. I’m not one of those…

How to create a shiny art journal page using Distress Oxide & Emerald Creek

Colorful art journal page with shiny hearts using Distress Oxide and Emerald Creek embossing powder

Yesterday’s prompt over at Nathalie Kalbach’s Artful Adventure challenge was shiny and instead of finding anything shiny at home, I created a shiny art journal page using Distress Oxide for the background and Emerald Creek embossing powder for the shiny hearts. I started with adhering pieces of an old German book onto my page. Then I added a layer of clear gesso. Next I used my Clarity stencil brushes to blend 4 of the Distress Oxide colors together… …and added some water splashes to add more interest to the background. Then I added the bigger umbrella girl silhouette by blending…

So Suzy Stamps with Jane Davenport water colors

Happy Mother’s Day everyone. I bet we are all mothers of some sort, for example I’m the mother of a little fur bay, the mother of dragons (I have gazillion plush dragons) and mother of my own ideas (yikes, cheesy… LOL). For this special occasion I had to create something with flowers and such. I love watching all these videos were someone is heat embossing a floral background and then water coloring it. If you follow The Ton you have definitely seen it. I don’t have a floral background stamp, so I made my own (and will never do it…

Bookmarks using Strawberry Jude Stamps and Jane Davenport water colors

Welcome to my last guest project for Strawberry Jude Stamps. Today I decided to create a water colored bookmark using the gorgeous “Hello Sunflower” set and some new to me Jane Davenport water colors. I thought it might be more fun to watch me coloring this gorgeous sunflower than reading through a long description 😛 So here it is. What do you think about my water colored bookmark? I thought the Jane Davenport water colors are really bright (hence the name 😛 ). I love that the box is so small, so you can take it with you and not…
