Below are my last two layouts for my summer document life journal. The bird theme has been my fave so far. I’m so glad I was introduced to this neat way of documenting at the workshop I went to at the beginning of my summer. It combines scrapbooking, journaling, sketching, making pretty stuff, quotes, etc…and I LOVE IT! It’s art, right!?! That is why I LOVE IT!
My friend Tammy showed me this awesome mirror she made out of all kinds of bling and pretty stuff. The handle was so unique–A BUTTER KNIFE! She even gave me a couple of knives to start my own. Wahooo!
Ya gotta have a butter knife, a mirror, a collection of beads, bling or whatever AND that awesome E6000 glue.
Tammy provided the knife and I fold an OLD mirror. My collage collection ended up coming from all over my shop. I stayed with more of a silver, pearl, glassy bling combo. You’ll see. Scroll through my pics…
So I have to work some on the front tomorrow, but I love the collage on the back. Yay for today’s creation!!!
Here are two other creations I put together recently :
I do love just making all kinds of things. If I see it and like it–then I wanna try and MAKE IT! My shop is full of all kinds of things I can create. I enjoy just going in there and putting stuff together. I also started doing some collage inside bottle caps tonight. Who knows what I’ll do with those. Recycling stuff is one of my faves.
What do I do with all this stuff you ask?
I hang a lot of it in my shop and decorate here and there. I have no idea what I’m going to do with some of it. I wish someone would sell it for me. A friend of mine suggested I do an ebay or etsy shop. I’m sure that would be fun and more than likely profitable, but school is about to start again and I’ll be super busy. I will still be able to create some, but there’s no time for a business. Maybe some year. HA!
I’m getting sooooooooooooooo excited about going back to work. Most people think that is INSANE, but if you are one of those that really loves your job, hopefully you can relate.
Ok, enough BABBLE!
