Extra Styles


My crafting resolutions:
1. To create more than 50% of my projects with either recycled materials or scrap left over materials to cut waste and excessive earth fillers.
2. Teach paper crafting classes and share the Joy.
3.Custom Design Products I love to use and share.
4. Learn everyday what it takes to be patient, understanding, tolerant and giving.

Candy Winner and Top Tip Tuesday half way Sparkle Challenge

**********************Whimsy Stamps Sale here*******************

My Candy winner is at the bottom :)
Mid Week Top Tip Tuesday Challenge

Yikes!!  I'ts Tuesday again and this is the half way mark for the last Top Tip Tuesday Challenge.  I needed to hold off till the half way mark because last week was a very busy one!  I've colored a lot of images from several different companies and artists (and I have several favorites).  However, because I design with Top Tip Tuesday, I get to use graphics from Stamp Fairy and they are one of my favorites!

In today's project, the little girl is wading in the water so I added some muddy coloring to the ankle area and dotted on some sand for the background.  Instead of the air brushing copics I whittled in from the edges which I think gave the sunny day look.  The MiC chippy was coated in glitter paint and then you can't forget the little take away gift, and this sunglasses charm was just the ticket for this sunny day card "Just Because".  Enjoy!

Our Current Challenge is:
" Sparkles Galore"
