Tilda With Tulips

Hello Everyone,

           I hope your week has been going well.
This past week or two I was browsing
on the Internet and found some of the
cutest stamps. The Magnolia world of
 stamping. They have so many different
 stamps. There is Tilda, Erwin,
and all their friends. What makes them
super cool, is the backgrounds and the
 mix and match characters.

      This stamp is called Tilda with tulips.
Isn't she to cute. Then I picked out the
watering can for her to sit on.
I know I probably went overboard with
all the things I put on the picture, but
that's how we learn. And you must have
fun with it. You know what I  mean.
Put things on, take things off, cover glue spots
 with flowers, LOL . We all do it. If we are happy
with it,Yay!! If not, we tare the things we
can use off it and start over.
Am I right?

I used a piece of black chip board to
start with. I cut out an easel to put on the back
so it would stand up. Then just went a little crazy
and layered paper, used my spellbinder dies,
airbrushed some flowers and so on.

The markers I used are called
and you can find them at the 
They are alcohol based markers
 and come in 163 different colors.
They also work in a well know brand
 airbrush system. They are great
quality, at an even greater price.
Pop over and check them out.

 Here are some pictures of what I came up with.
I hope you like them.

I would like to Thank the
Photographer who took these pictures.
My Wonderful Hubby Frank!!

Thank you for stopping by.
And have a scrappy day.

Mixed Media Foiling Fun

Hello Everyone

Today I want to show you what I was working on
this past weekend.
First of all I want to thank
for the wonderful tutorial.

After the holidays I picked up these little pails.
You know all the holiday things are on sale,
so I  got all kinds of things.

These are so easy to make.
All you need is something to cover.
Odds and ends to glue on the project.
Heavy foil, ( the kind we use cook the turkey).
Some paints and glossy spray varnish.
That's it.
Then just dive in and get messy.
I love the end result.

Here are a few pictures of the project.

They are going to be little thank you gifts.

I had a blast making them.
Pop over to the tutorial and see how easy
these little gems are to make.

Thank you for stopping by.
And have a scrappy day.
