Last day of April

Ohh my...where as the time gone? It's the end of April already...been a rainy April as well. We have had massive amounts...creeks overflowing..and standing water everywhere. I do hope May is a sunnier and warmer month! I know they say *April showers bring May flowers* but we need soooo many showers???????!!! :) It has helped our yard turn from a nasty brown to a lush green and growing lawn. DH isn't soo grand about that...he does the! I can't wait to see what May has in store for us all...

A Lil' Country Journal

This is a notebook I altered for the same lady as the frame. I love the look...soo pretty and dainty. I used DWV Linen Closet patterned paper for this book. It has some yummmy papers in it. I added ribbon in a dk brown and then added a handmade flower to it. It's a nice touch to it after using the mini printed flower paper. Then I made a brown stick pin and placed it in the flower

Free as a Bird

TO be FREE as a bird....Wouldn't it be cool to fly like them? To go where and when you wish...I did an altered frame with a bird theme to it...and the word **SOAR** me it means freedom. ENjoy life and explore everything at new heights. It was for a Sister on the CMB ..we had a 4 days of Easter swap...this is one of her Handmade items.

I used a 5x7 photo frame. I sandpapered it and then painted it with Picket Fences Crackle paint by Tim Holts...then added Riptide Glimmer mist to it before using the heat gun to make the paint crackle. I love the affect of how it turned out. then inked the inside of the frame with a carribean blue glimmer mist. I used the Lacey Labels Cricut cart to cut the words out in black vynol. Adhered it to the glass and smoothed it out. Tooo pretty!


Antique -themed Can

Hello to all...

I altered this can for a sister on the CMB. Sweets..I hope you enjoy it. I love how it turned out...didn't need alot of XTRAS as the papers were gorgeous and had a slight busy pattern to them. No need to cover it up. Which is paper from  Ancestrial Key Stripe and dots and swirls by TPC Studios.  I just added a variety of ribbons to the handle, a paper ribbon in muted browns  and some antique keys and a handmade dangle on the side. PERFECTO!!!!! :) She loves the color teal..and this is just that...but more of a toned-down teal with browns/creams/coppers. LOVE THAT PAPER! I also filled the inside with tons of goodies...from ink pads by Tim Holtz and prima flowers, pearls,glue dots and atg refills and copic markers. What a great selection of goodies. ENJOY <3~~~~HUgs Rhonda

Handmade Glimmer mist

I love this stuff and to have enough...NEVER...then to learn to make your own in even new shades...WOW!
Here is the RECIPE to try to make it yourself....enjoy

Supply List Needed
1. Mini misters
2. Pefect pearls or Pearl ex
3. Colored inks in the dropper bottles (I use the refills for regular inkpads) Not DISTRESSS OR Alcohol inks.
Last but not least Water!!

Step 1:  Put your pefect pearls in the bottom of your mini mister (any color) I tend to put more then normal because I like mine really glimmery but you can always add more if it is not glimmery enough for you.
Step 2: Add the color ink you would like (this will be the color of the mist itself) I normally add about 15 drops in the mini misters I use from the ebay seller above. Your best bet is to add some try it and if you would like a darker color just add more ink.
Step 3: Add water to your mister. I would say leave a space from the top incase you want to add more perfect pearls or ink.
Step 4: Close the bottle, Shake it up and ENJOY!!!
Like I said you can always add more ink and pearls to add more of a shine or make the pigment stronger.

Work In Progress

I've been working on a few things. I've enjoyed how they have turned out as well. They are all swaps I've joined.
The Green clovers are for the YPP stick it up swap. I love how they look.

Recipe-Green bazzill crdstk I cut at 3.5 on my Cricut. Then on with a dker green at 1.5 . I inked the edge with a dk brown. Stamped in dk brown..LUCKY. Made the stick pins with a variety of green beads.

 This is a Dangle for the Charm/Dangle swap on the CMB. It was a FREE Choice theme. I used Girlie Girl. Lots of pink..and flowers. It's really *charming.*  :)

RECIPE~Tim Holtz swivel clasp and jump rings. A nice variety of beads from Wal-Mart and M's.
THis is for the swap on the CMB too. But it was a Vintage theme. I love the colors of the metals I used on it . Lots of browns..creams..and blacks. VERY VINTAGE to me.                                 REcipe...Tim HOltz swivel clasp...a variety of beads                                                            

Can 4 Copics

Hello to all

This can is a tall lunch tin I altered for a swap on the CMB. It's going to _____in Florida. I know she will enjoy it..she asked for it in one of the Mandatory HM items category. I really am pleased with how it came together.

Recipe~~Maya Road tin..covered in DCWV Solid cardstock in a dk teal and a stripe teal and cream with a hint of glitter. Ribbons are from my stash. Bling flourish is by Prima and the flowers ...are from stash. I glimmer mist'd the two darker teal with a dragonfly and the other with cool carribean. I inked the edges of the other two white flowers with  SU cool carribean. Then added pearls and PRima centers to them. I also made the heart stick pin in teal colors. The word **Copics** is from BG chipboard letters. I inked them in the SU cool carribean and then used Ranger paint dabber in Pearl on top of it. Heat set it. I'm soo pleased with my creations.
