art parts & shopping scoop...


Introducing... the rectangle frame from art parts...

it's 3 1/2 x 5 1/2...
exactly what I wanted for a very long time...

below is another project that is included in book #3...

The Maya Road bingo numbers are fun as flower centers...

how fun would it be to customize a card with the date & age of the recipient (if they're young!) & use them as the flower centers?

or how about the date of the wedding??



Notice the eyelets in the scallop trim?

art parts are thick, so there isn't enough length on the eyelets to crimp them...

so...

I put a dab of Claudine's multi medium on my craft sheet...

dipped a toothpick in it & added a tiny dab inside the holes...
working from the back...

The multi medium holds the eyelets in place perfectly.

I like the matte finish for this.

and speaking of new stamps...

a little birdie told me that these 2 stores have a limited amount of them...NOW!

both stores were @ Carson & bought the remaining stamps after the convention was over...

check here & here...

once they're gone...

they're gone...
no more until they order @ CHA...

I'm headed back to the studio...
LOTS to accomplish before CHA...

To say it another way...

time to...

make art!

Love the size of these art parts, not too small, not too big, just right, said baby bear. rofl. Ok, so, I want to know what you did to the bottle, looks like a different technique that I might need to try.. lol. Great piece, as always, love the eyelets in the trim.

PS and of course had to run over to Eclectic Paperie and order what they have in stock. A patient person, I'm not.
