hot off the press...

right from the studio to you!

I was up @ 4:30am with an idea for this piece...
I had to get up & get it out of my head...

but...
it looks absolutely NOTHING like the idea I started with...

why is that?

art seems to have a mind of it's own some days...

anyway...

When the art parts frames are cut, you end up with the insert that gets cut out...

so I had several of these & decided they needed to be put to use...

here's today's finished piece...



it's quite substantial, since it has so many layers...(I'm thinking gifts...)

now if you click & enlarge the photo...*EDITED*(OOPS...I guess that doesn't work. sorry)

you'll get a better look @ the memo pin embellishment...


I made a bunch more yesterday, using the same technique...

and I also made this discovery...yippee!

tim's tissue tape is LOADED with minis that fit the memo pins...

one roll must have a billion choices...
seriously...

just adhere a strip of tissue tape to a cardstock scrap...

punch...

proceed to fill the opening with Glossy Accents...

these are really fun & economical to make...
and I like that you'll never run out of the exact pin you need...

you'll see that the pin above is tinted, because of the color in the tape...it was a perfect fit...

and here's a few more ideas that are brewing in my little brain...

you can also fill the opening with Enamel Accents...

allow to dry & then add a mini...really mini rub-on, for a fun custom embellishment...

you can do the same with the Glossy Accents...

just add a mini rub-on on top...

did you spot the 2 Maya Road star trinket pins...
I bought 500...yep...500!
LOVE them!

MR UPS just dropped off a next day air box of...

ART PARTS!

I'm running to the studio to...

make art!

PS You know that you're addicted to online shopping when you regard the arrival of the UPS man as the highlight of your day. LOL! That would be me!

Very cool Wendy!!
Just to let you know...when I click on the pic it doesn't go any bigger, it's the same size if not a smidge smaller...maybe it's my comp. I don't know.
Anyhoot...thanks for sharing!

Love this art, I can't wait to get the art parts!

Lori said...

AHA! Soooo, I suppose some of your round stamps, i.e. the label stamps fit perfectly in these art part guts, right? Oh, I hope so, that would be the icing on the cake. This is a great piece you've made. I can't WAIT to get those parts! And these memo pin ideas are just fabulous.

Wanda H said...

Another great piece... but I couldn't get a larger pic :-(( Has your Glossy Accents in a memo pin taken on a blue tint?? I did just a couple and they both turned blue around the edge. I have a few of your new sets on their way to me... woohoo!!!!!

Nancy said...

So this piece is going to be a gift? To me, right??? *lol*
Beautiful, Wendy ... just beautiful! And, like everyone else, I love all you're finding/creating with the memo pins! TFS!

And of course there are soooooo many projects of ART that I can introduce them to. It is like a whole new world to many customers and the excitement is beyond belief! Thanks for sharing your talent with so many of us Wendy!
