Suzi in Hong Kong - Tag

Posted by Susan on Saturday, March 26, 2016 in ,
Introducing one of the new Prima Paper Doll stamps by Julie Nutting - Suzi! Although the doll and outfit that comes with her are intended for beach/sea layouts, I saw this and instantly knew I wanted to use the beach cover-up as a long flowing shirt over leggings, and here is the result!

Love it

Relove - Art Journal Page

Posted by Susan on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 in
I was inspired by Donna Downey's 10x10x10x10 series and all the student work coming out of those classes to create this mixed media art journal layout.

Through it I also learned that I love the mop brush for creating these layered backgrounds!

I also have to give a shout out to my friends Steve and Suzanne Anderson of Relove. In the spirit of salvage, I kept the tag of some chairs we purchased from them and used it in this layout.

Mermaid Cards

Posted by Susan on Sunday, January 17, 2016 in , ,
I decided in 2016 that I would use whatever crafty skills I could muster to try and perform some Random Acts of Kindness (RAK). My first efforts were to create a set of mermaid cards for a friend who is a big fan of mermaids.

This was also my first attempt at watercolors, so I wasn't sure how these would turn out. In the end I thought they turned out really well and the recipient seemed very pleased with them!

Vintage Postcard Christmas

Posted by Susan on Thursday, December 10, 2015 in ,
This stamp has been in my collection forever, and yet I have never used it on a Christmas card. I turned to Pinterest for inspiration and found some great examples of Christmas Cards that used this design - so in essence I could probably say that inspiration for this card came from a number of sources. For anyone who has a stamp they haven't used in a while and needs ideas, just put your stamp name and company in the search box on Pinterest and hopefully it will give you a reason to visit some old favorites like I did!
