Whats crafting on this Thursday for ya? Please share.
Oh how the mouse has been needing company. At home and the office space. FINALLY I got around to making them. Simple and too easy. Had everything but the cork piece. Found it at a garage sale for 0.50 cents! Score.
Oh this 1 can of gold spray paint has lasted me.
I eyeballed the lines as I taped it up. It is about an inch apart.
Next you are going to use your X-acto knife and cute out certain pieces that you would want your pattern.
Be sure to be outside or in an open space before using your spray paint. I was in my patio with the nice touch of pine scraps on the balcony. Let the spray paint dry for about 10-15 mins. Spray a second coat if your heart desires for it. Then let it dry another 10-15 mins before peeling off the painters tape.
AND Viola! Finito. A hint of chevron and lines. My mouse finally has a companion.
See what happens when the gloomy weather rolls around? My craft creativity oozes out of me. Hope you enjoyed this and happy Wednesday.
A month filled with birthdays and celebrations. I thought it would be fitting to make mini cards to go with the gifts. Self-art inspired by chevron, stripe, and line patterns. Simple, chic, and pretty cards. A touch of love and effort.
SUPPLIES: White poster board any size, scissors, black permanent marker, and your inspiration pattern.
1} Cut a 4 x 2 blank card stock.
2} Decorate the front with what your heart desires.
3} Cut some diagonals on the ends or you can leave them straight.
4} Mini Cards done! Write you message and its ready to go.
I was take myself into a tour of other things illustration has to offer and stumbled on these squares. Sooo much on illustration I have not explored just yet. In mean while…what have you been doubting yourself with? Set your goals and go after it. Self-doubt kills confidence. Walk out the door everyday wearing your confidence and Tell yourself you GOT what it takes. Think of it as a MUST accessory you leave with everyday. Happy YOU day. HAPPY Monday.
Ahhh what a great reminder from Posh Little Designs. Thank you for your encouragements. I could not help and make a quote board from this to remind myself…tap into my creativity! Her site is filled with greatness. You should check it out AND follow her! Happy DAY and as for you TAP INTO your creativity!
What is this Sweetest day people are talking about? Another imitation of Valentines day I thought to myself. I paid it no mind and didn’t bother to do more research until a few friends this weekend asked me what do I have planned for my half? I said with confidence, “This girls GOT IT! She’s got it, she’s got it!” as I’m dancing in a circle. *giggles* Ohhh I was being silly.
Sweetest day is a holiday mostly celebrated in the Great lakes region. A day of opportunity to celebrate remembrance of the sick, the aged and orphans, and any friends, relatives, and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed. Like I said, “another imitated V-Day!”.
At the get together last week one of my guy friend mentioned this day and said, “SWEETEST day is made for girls to spoil the guys for once. I thought hmmm…it sounds great…BUT it wasn’t meant for that! I told him give me one reason why it should be for the girls to splurge on the guys for once. His answer: “It will show your appreciation and love for the guys, but when you do that it will be reciprocated. Love comes full circle anyways. Men work hard…we put you ladies first everyday.” I personally never really celebrated Valentines day. I feel that the love should be shared everyday and when days like this comes around its a reminder to keep the lovin’ flowing. ANYWAYS…I took my love one to the DAVE CHAPPELLE SHOW for some great laughs last night! Celebrating a just because day. *SMILES*
What do you have gathered for your SWEETHEART? You still have exactly 8 days. Get on it. Have a lovely SUNDAY!
