Craft Room Decor – Create

Hello all,

It’s Friday, another week down.  The summer seems to be flying by, doesn’t it?  This week, I wanted to make something pretty to go into my craft room.  I found the word “Create” (done in wood) as well as a Chip Decor Arrow at my local craft store and thought that this would be a great place to start.  I then added some paint, texture and flowers to finish up this decor piece.  Check out the Quick Tips Mixed Media Video below for the step by steps!

How to make a textured, rustic sign with TCW Stencils

Hello all,

I am over on the The Crafter’s Workshop Blog today with a Home Decor piece featuring the “Coffee Bar” Home Decor stencil.  Lately, I have been inspired by photos of rusty old cars, trucks, and metal pieces.  All of the lovely layers of paint, rust and texture on these old, decrepit items are so cool!  The Coffee Bar sign below is my interpretation of this beautiful rustic color and texture.

A Mixed Media Journey

Hello all,

While I was out searching for treasures at my favorite antique shops and second hand stores, I found a really cool vintage car (home decor piece) done in metal.  I grabbed it up right away with thoughts of a Mixed Media canvas bouncing around in my head.  I was so excited however, it took me several weeks to fit this project into my schedule.  So much mixed media, so little time!  lol

Anyhow, just wanted to share this project with you today.  I am planning on framing this 14″ x 18″ piece once I find the perfect frame.

Mixed Media Journey

Journey Car social media ready

I love how it turned out and I hope you do too!

Happy day!
