Happy Halloween!

Posted on

I enjoy giving little gifts to my family and friends for Halloween.  I’ve been playing with creating projects with my WRMK Envelope Punch Board, there are so many great videos on You Tube.  I came across this one for treat mugs and decided to make Halloween mugs and fill them with candy.  Here are four I made:

Here’s the back of the dark mug.  You can see the handle better.

This last photo is of two of the mugs with the treat bags I made for my grand kids.  I made tags for each and attached them with curling ribbon to the bags.

Practicing on a Canvas

Posted on

I used some of my Distress Crayon skills (from Creative Chemistry 103) to practice on a 6″ x 6″ canvas board.  I stamped Anneli by Prima with Jet Black Archival ink.  I colored with Distress Crayons and used a water brush to blend the colors.

I used some gel and pigment pens to add some details.  The finishing touch was an edging with Tarnished Bronze Distress Paint.

It was fun to create this canvas.  Let me know what you think.  Thanks for visiting.

Day 6, Creative Chemistry 103: Surfaces & Substrates

Posted on

For our Day 6 lesson, Tim described various surfaces and substrates.  He challenged us to use techniques from the first five days on one of these surfaces.

I created two cards, one is a sympathy card, the other a thinking of you card.  Here they are with the technique & surfaces used:

Thanks for sticking with me through all my Creative Chemistry 103 posts.  When I get my reference book put together, I’ll share it.
