with LOVE from me to you...

Happy Valentine's DAY to you!!!

I have a little video to show you...
but first some thoughts...

or disclaimers!

it's NOT perfect...

it's not edited...
I'm lucky I figured out this much...

so DON'T LAUGH...
I tried!

I had a big DUH...
the tripod was in my way so I moved it,
which changed the orientation of the screen...
so that explains the skinny size...

DUH...
lesson learned...

here's the completed project...
it features my new art parts heart, hand & mini scallop...

the background is tim's new kraft resist paper...

the letters are his new alpha parts...

forgot to show that in the video...
another duh...

the film strip ribbon was added to the art parts base with the tiny attacher...


and the video...

I HOPE it works...
otherwise there will be a quick "DELETE POST"...

video

I hope that you can see how beautiful the weathered wood distress stain looks on art parts...

and how cute the little trimmings flower looks...


Have a GREAT DAY my friends!

CHEERS!
Here's to LOVE...
and

mak(ing) art!
wendy

***EDITED AFTER VIEWING***
YIKES......it's kind of small...
I can make it full screen...
I hope you can too...
if not...I hope you have a magnifying glass!
next time will be better...
I HOPE!

Well yes, the screen was small, but the video was great! I LOVE how easy those stains go on and give awesome coverage - just ordered mine from Simon Says last week I (don't tell the Queen - couldn't wait!)... hope I get them before my trip so I can take them with me. Great to see you doing videos! They're awesome!

Dawn said...

Screen was small but It got the point accross - I love this project especially the hand and string! Love it!

lois Skiathitis said...

Do you know how happy you have made me. I am such a visual learner. I love the video. i could see it better when i made my screen big. I certainly hope you continue to make videos they are so helpful to me. I love this project it's really pretty and of course it has a heart on it. Happy Valentines Day to you too Wendy. Looking forward to getting my hands on the ink stains and the kraft resist paper. TFS!!! :-D

PS I'm loving the Art Parts that I have already.

sue said...

I think I am going to have to have the distrested stains. It looks so easy to cover your project.

Nancy said...

VERY cool, Wendy! Hopefully, this is only the first of many - you did great! And you've made me very glad I've ordered the stains - wasn't sure I was going to, but I did & now I can't wait to play with them!

Dorothy said...

Very nice Wendy!!!

mluxa said...

Wendy, it may have been small, but it was mighty!! I keep checking every day to see if the mailman left me a package!!! Can't wait for the stuff I have ordered.

Deb Smith said...

Hi Wendy, thanks so much for taking the time to do a video for us :) It was way cool, and I can't wait to get my hands on those stains!!!
Have a great day, and thanks again :)

Susan said...

Angie Lentz said...

Happy V-day to you!! I have to have those stains!!! You have such great ideas!!!

KAT said...

Wendy the video is awesome! love the finished product! Can you compare Matte Multi Medium with the Glue and Seal (is that the name???). I've been using MMM since Tim has us use it.

Shannon said...

Loved the video, it's so nice to hear your lovely voice. The only thing I would suggest is maybe doing a larger screened area, but other than that it was wonderful. One quick question about the Distress Stains, how do they differ from the Adirondack Color Sprays (aside from the Distress signature colors)or the liquid Distress Ink refillers?? I love your Art Parts, I can't wait until I can afford to get them. Take care and have a great week.

Penci said...

Wow! Thanks for taking the time to video that for us! I loved getting to see the distress stains work. I am very impatiently waiting for you art parts and new stamps to be released! lol

octlove said...

thanks for the video...great to see your work in action:)

can't wait to play with the new art parts, distress stains, kraft resist paper & of course your new stamps!!!

Loved the video. Looking forward to more. In case you are wondering, your voice sounds different in real life! Makes me wonder how George Clooney sounds in person. Guess I will never know.

Wilma B said...

Tara C said...

karen said...

Julie said...

Love the video! A picture is worth a thousand words especially a video one!!

Melody (lacyquilter) said...

Beautiful.

Marijane said...

Wow, I love the idea that you can now demonstrate some of your techniques via video! Please keep it up. I was able to enlarge the video by clicking on it. T'was nice to hear your "angelic" voice again, since I haven't been able to attend any of your recent classes.

Kathy Eddy said...

Got mine on pre-order now along with soooooo many other new products. More anxious than ever to get them here in my hands.

Karla Anderson said...

Great job on the video! I love love watching craft videos, it is so much easier to learn and understand what people did by watching a video than reading instructions. You did such a good job on your first one, I really hope you will post many more.

Erika M. said...

Very cool!

pixiedust61 said...

Hey Wendy, you did it. You are way ahead of me in the video/transfer to screen game....I got a flip camera for Christmas and while I did transfer the video to my desktop, I still can't get it to burn to a DVD....WAH! So, pat yourself on the back...
I did love the project. Thanks.
