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!


The Kraft Journal ... Kraft and Your Favorite Color!

Hi there!  Welcome to Make it Monday for The Kraft Journal.  This week's challenge is to make a project with kraft paper and your favorite color.  Well, this kind of got me to thinking ... and I decided that kraft goes with all colors!  And then I had to decide which colors I wanted to use, and what kind of kraft paper I wanted to use ... I'm telling you, I was in a dilemma!  But, as I looked through my stash I noticed my lowly little kraft shipping tags and decided I would take something very simple and basic, and make it lovely by using a fancy paper, and different colors of embellishment.  And yes, I know I kind of deviated from the challenge, but the 'challenge' is only a suggestion anyway!  So here are my tags ...

I made three different tags using the same paper, but different embellishments.  The one on the left used some black tulle ribbon and three stacked ribbons ... white, red and black on top.  The center one I used yellow seam binding and a flower made of paper with a button center.  The one on far right is simplest of all, using a Prima flower, black grosgrain ribbon and an Epiphany Round 14 bubble cap for the flower's center.   All of the sentiments are from SRM Stickers.

So these are just proof that you can take a very basic supply such as kraft paper or tags, and turn them into something lovely with some pretty embellishments.  I hope you have enjoyed visiting today ... and please come back next week for my last post as a DT member for The Kraft Journal.  Blessings,

Amazing tags! I agree that Kraft goes with anything. I just got some elegant black/white papers and I had not thought about pairing them with Kraft until now! Love the pop of yellow with as well. Thanks for the inspiration today. Sorry to hear you are leaving TKJ.

Hi Becky! These tags are beautiful. Your art always makes me smile, and I'm SO honored to design with you at TKJ.

I'd love to have you share these tags and play along with us at Word Art Wednesday. Our challenges are always Anything Goes, and since we can't play along at TKG, I invite you to play along at Word Art Wednesday. We have some amazing sponsors. I hope you will stop by.

Have a blessed week, my friend.
