I had to think a lot about how to show all the things that fill my head and I came up with this whimsical way.  First I took a black and white photo of me and cut out my head like an opening lid. I added lots of different pieces on the page to show all the thoughts and ideas that are “poring” out of my head.  Then I cut all the images from different Graphic 45 papers and also added a title with some letter stickers.

12 Cards of Christmas: Cards in 60 seconds!

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing on 12 Cards of Christmas: Cards in 60 seconds! Yes it is possible to create a card in 60 seconds! It’s all a matter of what you’re using and how badly do you need it…     12 Cards of Christmas: Cards in 60 seconds!

Or bother with fancy stamping and coloring. And there is certainly no time for fancy folding or layering embellishments. So 60 second cards are basic cards that serve a purpose and not much more. However there is a way to make them a little more fun… Accordion Card     When creating an accordion card you need three pieces of cardstock in the same size and something to bind them with, or one piece of …

My Top 3: Art Journaling Quick Fixes

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing on My Top 3: Art Journaling Quick Fixes. Sometimes things don’t go as you plan even for me. I don’t like how my art journal page turned out or I’m stuck and don’t know how to continue. I have 3 ways of fixing that…     My Top 3: Art Journaling Quick Fixes 1. Start again This fix is kind of obvious. But how do you start again? The best way is to cover everything with white gesso and simple do the page from the beginning. If you do like parts of the page you can cover only part of it or some of the elements. If covering the page or part of it with gesso is not the solution then you can cover the part you don’t like with acrylic paints or a piece of tissue or pattern paper.
