Anchor Art {reclaimed wood crate}

This box was great to work on because I tend to want to paint soft colors and especially pinks.  
    I based this box with a gorgeous shade of gray. I painted the anchor black, added red roses , accented the chain on the anchor with gold and glitter. I wrote the name in a yummy shade of aqua. It's a very pretty combination. I also put at the base inside the box a heart with the saying "you are loved"!

Owls are the sweetest!

My newest design. Hard to see but there are little jewels in the middle of each flower and the leafs are accented with glitter!

Chalk art

We made these awesome chalkboards out of maple cabinets that had glass inserts that had cracked. I love the possibilities and the inspiration that can come from just trying to repurpose an item that would normally end up in a trash pile. Upcycle and re-use when you can ;)

Fast and Easy and a look at what you can do with a scoring tool!

Downloaded the blogger app from the iTunes Store so that I can blog from anywhere I am and whenever I want. I also take most of my images of my art projects from my iPhone. I always
have it on my docking station while I am blasting music and painting. 
     On to art.... Here are some cute DIY projects you can do that's inexpensive fast and easy! 💖 
I use just scrap booking paper and the Martha Stewart scoring Board. It's available at Staples, Joanne's, Amazon. It runs about 24.99 and I love it! I just add my vintage buttons and it's a little piece of pretty everyone loves. I add them to packages and thank you cards etc. happy crafting! Have a blessed day ;)

It's been a long time!

I have a brand spanking new photography blog and have thought of making this sweet little blog into my art blog. I envision this blog being about loving God, my family, art and inspiring other woman to love the life they live.
