New sites...

With Scrappin Trends closing, I had to venture out and find a new place or a few new places to call home. Some new sites that I am loving are.

2 Spotted Dogs

Sugardumplin

Dixie Pieces

Totally love the amazing kits they are putting together. I have only ordered from 2 Spotted Dogs and can't wait till it gets here... I am waiting for October to get here to order the kits from the remaining 2.

If you get a min. stop on by and say hi.

If your here in Washington a little hint. Dixie Pieces has lots of gals from Washington on the site.

Rock On Shadowbox

Here is the full view of my project for the Typicalifragilistic blog... Be sure to check it out as all the projects and ideas are amazing....



I love all things Transparent and 3D. So why not mix them together to create a piece of art for your home?


I began by altering an old shadow box that I had picked up on clearance. I painted it black, then covered it with a coat of the new Tim Holtz crackle paint (due to be released later this month). Once dry, I daubed my favorite green paint on top resulting in a really cool crackle textured effect.
My ultimate goal was to maintain a transparent art piece so I decided to layer several images together. I began with a piece of Red Grid Hambly for the background of my shadow box. Then I cut out the heart with wings from the "Follow Your Muse" transparency (created by the fabu talented Marah Johnson)and centered it to the back of the grid transparency. The final step was layering the guitar image along with coordinating stickers from Marah Johnson's Rock Star line.


By layering several images onto the glass and transparency you will achieve a rockin' 3D project.

I'm Back.... Sorta..

Well the past month has flew by.... Before school started My 2 little ones and myself went on a road trip to California to visit hubby who is currently deployed there... We had a blast visiting hubby... It was the first time we ever went to visit hubby when he was deployed... We surprised the little guys with a trip to Lego Land... They had a blast and so did hubby and I... It was a great surprise besides all the traffic in LA...

It was a great trip... We got home with a couple days to spare before school started...

I can't wait to get all my pictures developed from both of our road trips and Lego land.. hehe

I however have been really sick... That has been the downfall to our last road trip.... I ended up catching a parasite that is native to the soil down in California where we were at. It has totally took a toll on me and well I hope I start to feel better soon.. Because to be honest with you I would never wish this on my worse enemy.... There is a small silver lining to being sick and not being able to keep anything down.... I have lost so much weight... I lost 12 lbs while in California.. Then since being sick I have lost an additional 22 lbs for a total of 36 lbs so far... So yeah it's great but dealing with what I have been dealing with I'm still not sure if it's worth it. lol

Some great news thought.... I have been asked to join a new blog with a great group of amazing artist's.. It is set to launch on the 15th so stay tuned for that news and link.... I will say if you like great tips and new techniques you are gonna LOVE all the stuff we have in store for you...

I am slowly working on my project and I'm keeping my fingers crossed I am able to get it done in time...

I hope everyone has been while in my month away from blogging and I can't wait to catch up on all of your blogs...

Hugs.
