Thanks for visiting!

Welcome! This is the place where I share my artsy and crafty projects. I am an evolving artist these days ... finding myself enjoying less of the cards and mini albums that I have made for years, and turning to art journaling and more artistic endeavors. I have always enjoyed some craft or other, and some of my earliest memories of my mother helping me make paper dolls and other crafts. I am now in my 60's and finding myself more passionately enjoying creating beautiful things and learning new skills and techniques and products.

While you are here I hope you will find inspiration and ideas for making your own projects, however any images or projects you find here are my personal property and should not be used for your own monetary gain, or for contests or challenges. Thank You!


Unscripted Sketches #82 - Happy Anniversary

Hi Folks!  It's Saturday once again, and that means it's time for Sketch It Saturday at Unscripted Sketches!  This week's sketch was a tad challenging for me, but when I turned it 1/4 turn to the left, well, everything became clear as a bell!  Here is this week's sketch . . . 

See what I mean?  It's a little 'graphic', or maybe segmented is the word I'm trying to find, but either way, once I made that little turn, I knew what I wanted to do!  Here is my take on this week's sketch . . . 

A cute little anniversary card, just perfect for some coffee lovers out there!  Here is all the info . . .

Product Info:

  • Patterned papers from a Cosmo Cricket Double Deck, Garden Variety
  • Card stocks are just scraps from my drawer of bits
  • Flowers are Hero Arts
  • Image is from a 12" x 12" sheet by Flair Designs called 'Farmers Market'.  It is 2 each of 6 'labels' with a vintage feel.
  • Ribbon and cup and saucer charm are from my stash
  • Adhesive is from my super Glue Glider Pro - Perma Tac from GlueArts

Tips, Tools and Techniques:

  • Image was matted with a bit of green cardstock, corners rounded with the small corner rounder by EKSuccess
  • Sentiment was printed on orange cardstock using my inkjet printer
  • Flowers were stacked and held together with a brad.  I took the silvertone charm and coated it well with VersaMark ink, dipped it into copper embossing powder by Ranger and melted it with a heat gun.  Now instead of a cheapy looking silvertone cup and saucer, it's pretty copper!
That's my project for this week!  Thanks so much for visiting, and I sure hope all of you in the US have a wonderful, happy Thanksgiving!  Blessings, Becky
