Hello Friend Card-Imagine

Hello Makers!

So, sometimes I like to put my stamps down and hand draw my own images. That is exactly what I have done with this card. I drew images with Imagine’s irRESISTible Pico Embellisher, a texture medium. The fine-tipped applicator allows you to write or make doodles. For the background, I used various All-Purpose Inks to create a watercolor painted look and then drew on top with the Pico Embellisher. Check out the full tutorial at the Imagine blog.

Ceramic Bird Cage Dress

Hello Makers!

Been focusing more more and on ceramics. I have completed several pieces. Some did not survive because they broke in the firing process or the glaze ruined them. Some did not survive because I did not like it and took a hammer to it...sad but true. I will slowly show my pieces that were successful. For instance, I made this ceramic dress where I made the bottom look like a birdcage. This was fun to make. I first colored in the entire dress with turquoise underglaze, then sealed it with wax.  I manually drew the birds and bars then carved out the image. Then added black underglaze into the images and wiped back the excess. Because the turquoise was protect by the wax, it did not stained the color. I finished it with clear glazed. This technique is called sgraffito. Hope you like it.

Imagine-Upcycle a Pencil Holder


Hello Makers!

Today I have a fun upcycle project to share. I had an old, unused pencil holder that I did not care for; but it was in good condition. So what is a person to do? Upcycle it and make it your own, of course. I upcycled this pencil holder with Imagine's new Mboss embossing powder. Check out the tutorial.

Live Laugh Love Card-Imagine

Hello Makers!

Today I have a bright and cheery card to share. I have to admit when I made this card I was feeling down....going through some stuff. I was in not mood for anything, as these things go. To try to change my  mood I turn to creative endeavors. So I decided to make this bright red and yellow card with the right sentiment for the moment. I used Imagine's new embossing powders Mboss. I used the glittery red and gold combination called Valentine. Check the tutorial on the Imagine blog.

Red Ceramic Dress

Hello Makers!

I have a quick share today. Made this dress out of fired ceramic clay. Used Amaco and Coyote glazes. I know I keep making red dress out other types of clays and cards. What can I say I like red dresses. Funny enough I don't own a red dress. I think I don't own one because I would feel like I would standout, draw attention and be bit scandalous, since red attracts the eye. I definitely, do not want to draw attention my way...unless, you're looking at my art, then please, may I have your attention. Until I get a red dress, I’ll have express myself through my art. Well, I hope you like this red dress.
