Sweet Treat Jar

Hi everyone! I have a very short post for today. I just wanted to show you a very humble project for Valentine's. I'm starting my Valentine's gifts, and I thought I would recycle some jars! In this case I simply embellished it with lace, ribbon and paper twine and some tags. The goodies I filled the jar with are some yogurt flavored pops and marshmallows.





Materials: 
Heidi Grace Designs - LOVE, Specialty Project Pad
Spellbinders - Classic Labels Four
Stampendous - Spanish Greetings
Memento Dye Ink - Rhubarb Stalk
Ranger Distress Ink - Worn Lipstick
Merletto Diamond Stickers
Merletto Paper Twine in pink
Cre-a 7/8" pink ribbon
Other generic Materials
5/16" red ribbon
2" One sided Lace

This is a cute and fun way to recycle containers. I plan to do some more. Though it's simple it is a sweet little something to give to a friend on Valentine's. Hope you enjoyed it!

Bible Journaling with Pan Pastel, Deco Foil, TCW and Unity Stamp Co.

I promised I would be back with a new art journaling inspiration project today... This might as well become a habit! This time I have a page from Psalm 31 that I handdrawn and colored with PanPastel. The softness of the PanPastel goes so well with the bible pages and it so easy to blend and color with.
I knew I wanted a bold floral image on this page. I love floral illustrations and I had to try out this Magnolia here. I handdrawn the flower in pencil first inspired by a photograph online. This time I did not feel the need to prep my page because I was not going to be using any wet media on it. Then I started shading my flower starting with a 430.5 Magenta, adding highlights with 380.8 Red Oxide Tint and 100.5 Titanium White (trying not to touch the rest of the image and only blending it on the lightest spots of the flower). I also added 470.8 Violet Tint to create a little bit of shadows but since my coloring is usually whimsical it is ok if the tones shadows and highlights are so r…

Pears & Flowers Step Card

She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:




I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…
