Art Foamies Giveaway

Recently I created a post on the Art Anthology blog pairing their mediums and the cool new ArtFoamies foam stamps.  Go check out that blog post to see how I made these beautiful art tags.

So what about the giveaway???  Well, I believe that when I am given something unexpected, that I need to share it.  So here is what happened.  I placed an order with ArtFoamies for a bunch of their foam stamps designed by Julie Fei Fan Balzer a few weeks ago.  Received them very quickly, despite the fact that they are located in Canada! Then about a week later I received another identical order.  After checking to see if I was charged twice, I realized that they had mistakenly sent me the second order without charging me!  I sent them an email telling about the issue and told them I would send the stamps back, but that I could also keep them and promote them by having a giveaway instead.  I was planning on doing the blog post regardless so I figured it's a win win!  They agreed!  And all you need to do is comment below and tell me which is your favorite tag by midnight EST, March 3rd. On Friday, March 4th, I will randomly pick 4 people to receive 1 of the larger or 2 of the smaller stamps (some of the smaller ones go together, that's why some people will get two.) 

Can't wait to hear from you! Good luck!

Art from 2015

Hi everyone! I'm sharing some projects that I made for Scrap n' Art Online Magazine last year.

Lots of sewing on this one!

This card is a Scrapbook Adhesive project to show how the adhesive works on lots of different surfaces. 

We got a quilling kit that we had to use and I was very bad at it so I made this canvas.  

This is a little journal that I made using cardboard, stencils, and fabric. 

I love this collage I made of my dog, Lucy.  I had to use the bling sheet so I die-cut the wings with it and made a little collar.  I'd like to make more of these.

So what do you think?  How about leaving me a question or comment below, or let me know which you like the best.  Thanks for visiting!

Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day!!!
Leave me some love in the comments!

Finishing Inspiration Wednesday for 2015

Here are my final journal pages for the 2015 Inspiration Wednesday class:

This one should be entitle, Hot Mess! But I love the idea behind it. I wrote a word on each of those tags and most of them got covered up.  Some of the words are: homo, klutz, emotional, liberal, unchurched, get the idea. 

I dripped High Flow acrylics with water to help the paint move.  I LOVE how this one turned out.  

I'm not sure how I ended up with an extra page at the end! I used Seth Apter's Stencil Girl stencil with molding paste and LOVE how this turned out.  

Here is the completed journal:

And here is the one for 2016:

It already has some paint on it because I was using this cover for the second half of last year so I could work with just one signature in a journal at a time to reduce the bulk.  I combined those signature together when I was finished for 2015 and made my own signatures for the new year.  

Don't forget to comment below. I'd love to hear what you thought of the class, etc. 

Thanks for visiting my blog!
