HOME TO MY SWEETHEART!

now it's back to NEW PRODUCTS!

I spent the weekend making more samples...
I had a BLAST...

this release has been so much fun to work play with...

let's start today with another stamp set...

this is...
MANLY ART...

Rick named the guy Clark...
not sure why, but he insisted that he looked like a Clark...
must be the striped shirt...

OK...
Clark it is...

the camera is so stinkin cute...
you'll see it toward the bottom of the post...

the giant background is a herringbone pattern...
reminds me of some old wool pants my grandfather wore...

LOVE the 3 sentiments...

"you are just my type"...
I *think* there will be a little Blossom Bucket piece made just for this saying...

you'll see it tomorrow...


I've been waiting so long to show you the next one...

I have tons of British friends & was thrilled when I found this vintage ad in a falling apart 1910 magazine...

this stamp set is...

BRITISH ART...

the pen is about 5 1/2 inches long...
it makes a great border...

LOVE the FORD'S Pen ad...
it's a great background...

love both creative sayings...

the pinching fingers...

and I'm lovin' the giant houndstooth background...



next is the
art parts package 
that
coordinates with both stamp sets shown above...
this is...

GENTLEMAN'S ART...

the camera is a 2 piece layered cutie...

here's what's in the package...


I have one more new art part set for today...


since the idea for "etching" art parts was successful...

we now have an...

ART JOURNAL 
with an ETCHED frame...

the frame can be used on either cover...
on a page...
or...
use it for something else...

it spices up some art parts we already have...

the 3 1/2 inch art parts frame
from my very first art parts release...
 fits inside this etched frame &
 together they fit over the insert
 from the original large square frame...

this journal is square & I've used it with the holes at the top
 & I also made a side opening journal...
square is FUN...


no art is complete 
until you add special embellishments...

today's new Blossom Bucket pieces are perfect flower centers...

love the swirl on these guys & 
they're...
BLACK!

use them right from the package or  mist them with Perfect Pearls to add a bit of bling...


the tiny detail on these is amazing...
use them as is...

or accent the centers with a gem...

they are a cool "wild honey" color...
use them alone with a hand drawn stem/leaves...
perfect forATC's...



more flower centers...
LOVE the color...

you can also age them with archival ink...
 mist them with bling...
add inks to the raised areas...
or draw a simple stem & use them alone as a flower...


next up...
4 brown basic buttons...

they fit anywhere you need an accent...
and as a flower center too...
and coordinate with just about any art...


and these guys are 
at the very top of my list...

they look like berries & are THE PERFECT flower center...

I wanted vintage GOLD...


BASIC BLACK...


and for sure
 a nice 
vintage SILVER/PEWTER...



with 3 berry color choices...
there's one for any project...

besides flower centers, 
I've use them as border accents...
coming soon to a blog near you...

now about that 2 piece camera...

look how cute!

you can accent the lens with some Glossy Accents or 
the small epoxy dot from Tim's custom fasteners...
they just happen to be a perfect fit...




the photo also shows a peek at the etched frame...

ahhh...
that was fun!

please know that 
I appreciate your comments & excitement
 so very much...

art friends are THE BEST!

I've been posting some photos on 
you can pop over there to see some fun stuff...

I'd be honored if you'd LIKE my page too...
I will do my best to post there from CHA...
I'll set an alarm on my phone to remind me...

I'll be back tomorrow with the final 2 stamp sets, 
2 art parts and
I saved some 
REALLY 
COOL 
Blossom Bucket 
embellishments...
really cool...

I'll also share

my 
MOST 
FAVORITE...

 KITS FOR ART......

2 kits...
seriously...totally FUN...
they are exactly what I wanted...

wendy
before I go...
