DianaL... please send me your address & I'll get your prize mailed off to you.


On to the art...

Some days I have NO WILLPOWER!
My Maya Road order arrived on Saturday...
with cool NEW product! YIPPEE!

I tried my best to stick to the tasks on the TO-DO list...kits, kits, kits & CRUISE stuff...
but I kept hearing them call me...
so I GAVE IN on Sunday.

I HAD to play with these mini houses.

I have no clue where the inspiration came from...
but this antique hinge seemed to be the perfect fit...
even though it weighs a ton...

The canvas is mini...just 2 x 4 inches...
but I loaded on the goods, as usual.

I covered the canvas with an old book page & adhered it with Claudine's multi medium...I like the matte best.

These mini houses are to die for awesome.
I think the smaller...the better....



Maya Road mini alphabets...perfect fit...
I almost used the mini trees...but the alphas won!

To make the scallop trim, I cut off a section of the rectangle scallop journaling coaster.

I LOVE tim's snaps for the grungepaper flower centers.




And the finishing touch...

a 1 inch square memory frame with memory capsule...made by Ranger.

Tim's mini fasteners fit the lock holes perfectly for a nice little detail.


So...that TO-DO list is still waiting for me...
But I sure enjoyed the playday!

THANKS AGAIN!!!
I appreciate EACH & EVERY one of YOU!

make art!
