Stenciled Art Frame with Airbrushing

Home Décor, mainly wall art, is high on my list of interests.  This stenciled framed art will be a gift to a relative who loves one of a kind art to display in her home.  To personalize it even more I added the initial of her last name. For this design I used Pazzles Stencil Plastic and used my airbrush machine to fill in the white and red areas.  If you don’t have an airbrush machine you can use spray paint or use paint of your choice using a paint brush or even a sponge. All the images are from the Pazzles Pro 2014 image gallery, but you can find similar ones in the Pazzles Craft Room. The butterfly and flowers are layered.  I used black cardstock as the backdrop since I wanted to use white paint.

Personalized Vinyl Sign: God’s Cat ...

Have you ever needed something for a spot in your home and haven’t been able to find the perfect thing to fit in that space? Consider creating a special art piece, using your Pazzles machine, a purchased piece of art and Pazzles vinyl. The inspiration for my art work came from the location and the area around where I was placing it, specifically next to my patio doors, overlooking my back yard. Key components in my back yard are the “occupants".   I have the usual things in my area of the country-a palm tree, a swimming pool, hibiscus plants, bird of paradise plants, citrus trees and feral cats.  I’ll explain about the cats, specifically, “God’s Cat Garden” a bit later. A base to place the vinyl was required.  I was unable to find the correctly sized unfinished piece at my local craft store.  A pre-made framed sign, made of paneling with words etched in the surface was the correct size. The piece was on sale so I purchased it, planning to sand off the words and refinish it. After sanding off the original words, I used two shades of paint on the paneling base to create a distressed look and distress stain to antique the frame.

Mason Jar Recipe Book Mini ...

Scrapbook mini albums are a very controversial topic. Most people either love them or hate them. I feel a little of both. I love to make them and spend hours adding all of the little details, but then I start to hate it once it's made because I don't know where and how to store it. Which side are you on in the very important topic? Recipe mini albums are different though, because they can be tucked in with my cookbooks and I feel like they have a proper place. I put together a really fun recipe mini album this week with all of the little details I love and I'm excited to share it with you. And if you love mini albums, the inside of this book has a unique system that you can use again and again for any theme. Along with the mini album, I've included a few options for print & cut recipe cards. The square cards are intended to be adhered into the pages of the album.

Pen Tool Happy Birthday Water ...

Adult coloring is a huge trend today.  Retail stores of all kinds, not just craft and hobby stores seem to be embracing this phenomenon.  A walk through a craft store shows a plethora of books, frames, notebooks, journals all to be colored by the buyer.  The health benefits of coloring are many, from stress relief to an exercise for your brain.  I do enjoy coloring and admit, I have a couple of books myself. Then I came to the realization, I can make my own coloring pages with my Pazzles machine!  Using files from the Craft Room, it’s easy to make the perfect “coloring” project, using the Pen Tool. We can choose the type of paper for the coloring medium we wish to use. Why not make it card size, or to fit in a favorite frame? We can reveal our inner artist, and no one will ever guess that it is our imagination and a little “Inspiration” that is allowing us to create the perfect art. For example, this little “Birday” card was created using the branch from Birds on a Branch, the bird and flowers from Pretty Bird on a Branch and the border and medallion from the Medallion Card Base.

Recipe for a Beautiful Garden ...

Every Spring and Early Summer as the cold weather turns and the grass starts to get green, the flowers start blooming and the leaves cover the trees in verdant colors, I get excited and ready to start adding a touch to our own yard for us to enjoy for the next few months.  The past two years we have not done a lot in our new home, so this year we are ready to really get started. As I was thinking of the things I needed to do to make sure our yard is vibrant with color and flowers, I recalled the special recipe that my oldest sister used and shared with us in the past.  We have used this recipe in our past homes and have always left each place with a plush lawn and beautiful landscaping with flowers and bushes that show their colors to the fullest.  So I know it is time to pull out the 'recipe.'   As I was doing that, I realized I could not find it. It then occurred to me, it should be with my recipe swap book that I did years ago with a group of online friends, that I still use.  That meant creating a page.
