day 5...meet Mr WORRY...

good morning my friends & happy weekend to you...

it's day 5 already...
I'll be leaving in less than 2 weeks...
YIKES!!!

CHA came up so fast this year...

before starting today,
I have to tell you that I got the preview of book #6 & I about fainted...

it's really cool...

the layout is VERY different & VERY arty...

Ted has a brand new digital printer,
so the format & book size have changed...

nice big photos...
larger text...
I think you'll like it...

I'll show you as soon as I get the real deal...

OK...let's get started...

here's stamp set # LCS077...

it's called worried about art...


first up is Mr. WORRY...
he's an art part too...

and he's perfectly sized to use with Mrs. Worry...
I'll show you a mini peek below...

talk to the hand...
pretty much says it all...LOL!
and we already have 2 sizes of art part hands, to use...
so, lots of possibilities...

don't bug me...
that gets right to the point...doesn't it?

pull...
it's a cute mini stamp & it's sized to fit in tim's charm clip...
you'll see that below...

some days need a DELETE button...
this is soooo true...

I have a really fun project done with this saying.
it's one of the projects in book #6...

don't make me use
my UPPER CASE voice...
perfect saying for the WORRY couple...
makes me laugh every time I use it!

the large hand...
is LARGE...like 4 1/2 inches long...
it has a coordinating art part too!
got any ideas?

what is normal?
I LOVE this for altered/funky art...
who says it's NOT normal to have a flower over your eye?
who makes the rules?

and the last one...
some days you just gotta laugh...
so TRUE?
AGREE?

I wanted to show you the cute couple...
but I had to chop off some of the project...
sorry...
but below you can see them...

and the PULL stamp too...


coming up...
2 more Blossom Bucket cuties...

if you're a blog friend, you know how much I LOVE flowers...
so, one of the main things I designed for BB are embellishments that can be flower centers...

here we have crocheted blossoms...
flat on the back, with lots of detail on the front...

this is alterable...use it right from the package...
or alter it to any color you like,
with alcohol or archival inks...
change the flower color or just the pearl center...

make it your own...

and the second is antique buttons...
I am over the moon thrilled with these guys too...

they are PERFECT for all the flower stamps & flower art parts we already have...
plus they fit the new ones coming...

again...great detail on the front & nice flat backs...

and they're not just flower centers...
see below...

meet antique buttons...

phew...
that was fun!

ok...
I'm always posting a reminder (ok lecturing)
to look at what things COULD be...
and how you can use them in your art...

here's an example...

I found this @ JoAnn's in the Christmas section...
@ 70% off...making is a whopping $2.00...

it's well made, a great color & a nice price...

but Christmas is over...


so, I gently ripped off the snowflake...
and added my Blossom Bucket embellishments
to make this cute accent pillow...



using just a bit of hot glue...

you create a simple little home decor piece...
in no time at all...

what a great gift too...

so...remember to keep those eyes wide open...
you never know what you'll find...

to embellish your art!
lol...that fit right in!

that's it for today...
THANKS so much for all the sweet comments & emails...
I sincerely appreciate the time you take to pop in & leave comments...

oh...one more thing...
who mentioned Eiffel Tower?
not me!

have a GREAT weekend...

see you on Monday!

I'll use the weekend to...

make (CHA) art...
