loving my signature enamel accents...


I'm so happy to have added 
Ranger enamel accents 
to coordinate with 

now we just need the other missing colors!
I keep reaching for cornflower, red geranium & orange blossom...but they're not manufactured yet...poop.

I had this little easel on my demo table and you'll find a 
THANKS Mark & Christine!



 if you watch the video
you'll see that enamel accents 
have lots of uses, in addition to
 creating dimensional dots...
I share a tip for painting small pieces, using the Ranger tape strips to hold them in place...

the video also shows how to easily create uniform different DOT sizes and MORE...
they are awesome with 

look closely & you'll see them on almost every project!

they make perfect "berries"...

I ***may*** have got a little carried away 
with the flower center!
too much fun!






and that simple dot adds the perfect doorknob on the mat mini homestead...
YES...
my new addiction is foiled embossing powder...try it!
super easy & fun & it adds just the right amount of bling...



the background of this tag was done with the new distress oxide inks!
totally unique product!


you'll see the enamel dots accenting the lace collar  on my designer challenge piece...
they did help to make it stand out...


and you'll spy some leaf green enamel accent dots on the leaves...
subtle, but they add texture...



thanks for visiting today!

enjoy yourself...
make art!

Have my Enamel Accents ordered...can't wait. So exciting because I love the existing black and white from Ranger and know these colors will get lots of use. Tips on the video were great!

I just had to find a close up view of your tag cause Tim Holtz didn't stay on it long enough in his video so I could take a good long look. Very nice!
