save those Clementines creates?…

OKAY so cool to turn into caddys .  used homemade glue.. {look in search my blog} and glue paper towels to create helps keep it sturdy and helps cover up the staples they use. do as many layers as you like. painted mine black to go with the napkin collage design . make sure you peel the 2 layers of paper off the napkins first.

valentine journal spread

I was playing around with ink sprays, and texture magic. I am running low on that stuff so I decided to make my own. with the baby powder…….Its like a cross between spackle and mud… I must have had been holding my tongue wrong , because it s working more like quick sand then a medium , and  When it finally dries  . It cracks and falls off what a mess. I think I’ll just buy it instead… LOL… 50 percent off  coupons are needed… well I scraped it off and started it over again. so the  dimension isn’t quite what I wanted on the cupid angel. but shes good  for now until I get more texture…

Week 6 Prompt: Window

For this week’s prompt, think windows of opportunity, the view from your window, beautiful stained glass windows, quotes about windows – whatever resonates the most with you. You can paint, doodle, draw, collage – or a combination of all of the above – whatever you are most comfortable with!

this one was different it was a start of a winter photo taken by one of my sons and I printed it in black and white . then used my water color pens and white out for snow and water colors for my raccoon, layered the windows wit double sided sticky tape to give it the depth. and added plastic from projector sheet for window..  its so cold out and stormy the poor raccoon’s looking for pietie marshmallows for his HOT cocoa… {from running Scared….. Mama. Mama! Out here! Hey, Gonzales. ….. Can I have some more petite marshmallows in my hot cocoa?

Its all I could think of ….LOL…………………….OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Prayer shrine

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI made this pin and put Mary in the charm, Back in the old days they would take photos of the love one for the inside and place a lock of hair ,  first communion medal , holy medals , or prayer beads. And placed On the back a prayer card or tribute. I used my parents cards from the funeral home. I took apart the left hand side and used the cardboard insert inside and placed a small bit of fiber stuffing {like used for stuffing teddy bears} and covered the board with yellow felt, I didn’t have any velvet.made a brooch to place in it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAthen I added the photo of Mary to the right side and put the glass back on it, and glued my trinkets to the glass with E600 glue

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPainted the outline braid on the frame GOLD.. and some of the words metals were silver so O painted them gold, to match.
