I’ve decided to open a YouTube channel in addition to my blog and Instagram platforms. In my very first video I show how to use modeling paste, I talk about some new Crafter’s Workshop products and give a tutorial on a stencil technique I developed using left over, or as I like to call it – craft overs, modeling paste and sprays. You can find the Crafter’s Workshop products at Bluemoon Scrapbooking.
Please check out the video to see how I made the card shown below on my brand new YouTube channel.
I hope you like this video. If you do (or even if you believe I will get better – lol), then please subscribe to my YouTube channel to get notified of new videos.
I came up with a technique in my craft lab which I will call “a happy accident.” I was cleaning my stencils when it hit me that I could create second and third generation impressions through the use of the left over modelling paste.
I am joining in on Instagram’s Inktober that challenges you to use a form of ink everyday during October. I’ve chosen to do white ink on black journal paper. This is one of the series that I have been doing. Continue reading →
I ended up working in my journal and pulled out my new Seth Apter Transform stencil and Seth’s amazing stamps. I started out with Paper Artsy chalk paints in four colors and blended them together until I was happy.

In my weary bid for summer to be over and fall and winter to finally arrive (I should caveat this by saying that I live in drought stricken California and I am sick of seeing the sun everyday). So I went to one of my favorite times of year and decided to create a sugar skull. Continue reading →
Today I am sharing a 5” x 5” journal page. This is the gal I drew for the epic throw down with the Fab Kim Dellow (a couple of weeks ago) until I realized our challenge was for 2” or smaller. So this is the spare that didn’t get used back then. I left the hair uncolored in order to focus the attention on the face. Continue reading →
So I decided to travel to my edgy side on this art piece 🙂 I have always been inspired by the underwater mythology that appears in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series. So this led me to discover what lies beneath.
Today I am sharing another 2” x 2” journal page. The one you see directly below I posted up on Instagram last week and some how Kim Dellow and I got on to a casual epic chat about how small could we make a face. I thought we said let’s see how small you could go, so when I drew her the 1st time she was about 4” tall. I missed the fact till I read on Show Your Face Friday (Kim’s uber cool challenge yourself to draw faces blog post) that I had committed to a face no larger than 2” tall EEEEEEEEK. Continue reading →
