Mixed Media Canvas

 I created this piece in a very simple way by melting crayons to create the swirls. I then decided to add some Lindy's Stamp Gang products for the background. This picture really does do the colors justice as I took the picture in my basement. I really do like the simplicity of it.

Super Late Waste Not Want Not Wednesday

I about forgot about Waste Not Want Not Wednesdays until on my way home. So here is a quick scrap card I made using some left over paper from making more stamp panels. I altered the background paper using Lindy's Products and colored the tree with various things. Looking at this picture I can't say I like how I colored the tree, but the background looks amazing.

Hello Again

I know I have been crazy absent for a long time. It is a very long story that I will eventually talk about on the other blog I started Gamer Girl's Guide to Dating. I am trying to get my life back together and get un-lazy.

That is to say I have still kept up doing crafting and did take pictures of most of my projects so I will have tons of material to post.

Here are two cards I made from scraps after I made some clear stamp panels. I wanted to go with simple so I only added the simple sentiment. The matte is some marble paper I made awhile back. I didn't care too much for the papers I've made so I haven't used them much.

On Vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm sorry for no WNWNW this week. I ended up with a sudden ACT student who requested 4 hours of tutoring plus I was attempting to pack and get ready for my trip to LA. I'm currently at the Salt Lake City Airport awaiting my flight into Los Angeles for KCon! I am sooooooo exited to be seeing some of my favorite artists in concert. Be prepared for lots of pictures and new scrapbook pages when I return!

Waste Not Want Not Butterflies

I had this paper left over from working on my cling mounted stamp binders. I altered the paper with a bit of ink and stamped a butterfly in the center and embossed. I added a couple of vine stickers and butterfly die cuts. To give it that little extra sparkle I added some Stickles and acrylic gems. It really can be fun using scraps to make cards.

Waste Not Want Not Wednesdays are Back!

Another scrap card from me. I took some left over K & Co paper as my background and used a die I ordered a bit ago from: Elizabeth Craft Designs and tried out their double sided adhesive stickers with glitter. They weren't the easiest things to work with, but the birds turned out cute. I ended up adding a bit of Starburst Sprays to the bird cutouts to give it a bit more pop. I added a quote to finish off the card.

Fairy Card

I made this card awhile back. I took some scrap paper I had and colored it with several different Starburst Stains from Lindy's. I then embossed it and used permanent ink in back over the top. The background was so pretty it took me forever to figure out what else I wanted to do to this card. In the end I added one simple mushroom and a fairy stamped on scrap paper and embossed.
