Steampunk Tissue Boxes

My studio met with a certain demise over a year ago, and since that time I have been focusing on my digital designs, until I could acquire a new building that won't fall prey to every little water disaster that comes my way. My husband and I went down to a cedar shed dealer where we ordered a custom building that will be delivered in a couple of weeks. It is 14x40 with 16ft of loft space, and I will have room to stretch out and be all kinds of messy, and still have enough space for workshops.  




In the meantime, this is a favorite project that I left in my drafts folder, and thought it would be a great time to add something new (And knock that Christmas Tree off the front page!). 





I used almost all Tim Holtz die cuts, and painted them with iron paint and then rusted them. My favorite detail is the picture wheel. I scanned a black cut and made a digital template, then printed pictures on acetate. It is a time consuming project, but it is full of wonder and inspiration.

O Christmas Tree!

How I love your snow covered branches!


I needed a nice large size painting for the Christmas and Winter season, so I made one using Golden Fiber Paste and various acrylic paints. I used seed beads for the texture of the tree, and made a white snow out of cello flakes, glitter glue, and Tri-Art Liquid Mirror paint. The star is from the bead department at Joann's, and I used Precious Metals by Viva Decor.

Rose Diaries Instant Scrapbook Pages

This is a sneak peak at my new Remembrance Album. These are all digital renderings of scrapbook pages that will be available in my Etsy store within the week for $3.50 per double layout. There are more than 13 layouts, and it takes 10 to fill a standard scrapbook album. They don't have to be for a loved one that has passed, they can be for any life story you want to highlight. I especially like the Heritage cover and index pages. Very handy. There is one for a family portrait that I expect will be very handy for many. The link to my Etsy store is on the side bar. It will be a busy week getting them uploaded!
