We have an ongoing situation in my house over art towels. Emma and I tend to grab dish towels, wash cloths, and even sometimes bath towels when we need an art towel. Needless to say, the chief laundry officer in our house (my husband David) isn’t thrilled with our art needs. He seems to dislike bathing and washing his face with paint and ink-stained towels and wash cloths.
Happy, happy Tuesday! I am so excited to have a tutorial for you today that features a few of my new favorite things… Ranger Ink Texture Paste and NEW Cracked Pistachio Distress! I have waited until lots of stores had Cracked Pistachio in-stock before sharing a tutorial featuring it. Hopefully if you fall in love with the color (if you haven’t already!) you will be able to find it at your favorite store by now.
Hello! Happy Thursday! Today I am checking in with one last card from CHA. This card is a quick one to create thanks to these fun new die cuts from Tim Holtz & Sizzix!
I am so fascinated by art jewelry. Among my favorite pieces are those that incorporate embossed metal designs like those from the team at Vintaj. They absolutely blow my mind with their creativity. I have been using their books (linked below in the supplies section) and their blog as instruction for teaching myself more about making art jewelry. I recently made a pendant (shown above) that was born out of a mistake.
I am so excited to share some fun news with you! Sizzix has published a new inspiration book all about upcycled project that feature die cutting! I got the opportunity to contribute projects to the book last year while I still working for Sizzix. What a thrill! I knew this book would be full of fabulous ideas because it included the work by the amazingly talented team from the Sizzix art room (Debi, Beth, Cara, Deena, and Wendy), but actually holding it in my hands and flipping through it… so fabulous! I am so inspired by the projects in the book and can’t believe I am a part of it!
