Mystical Dragonfly Mask & Event updates

Hello all,

Happy New Year!  It is hard to believe that we have put another year behind us.  My Creative Schedule is already pretty full and that makes me happy.   Creativation is only a few weeks away!   You can catch me demo’ing at the Imagine® booth.  I am so excited!

Creativation 2020

Next on the agenda is teaching a workshop at the Idaho Scrapbook Show on Friday, January 31st.  I will be teaching a Mixed Media Workshop; creating on a mini-canvas.

To round off the early 2020 schedule, is the Utah Arts Festival Unmasked Event (open to the public from 2/7/2020 through 2/21/2020).  I am creating a couple of masks to be auctioned off at this event.  The first Mask that I have created is shown below, Mystical Dragonfly Mask.  The mask features Dew Drops for The Robin’s Nest.   Creating the wings were pretty challenging, but fun!  I hope that it will do well at the auction.  Mystical Dragon fly Mask.badge final wm

My busy Creative Schedule in addition to my full-time day job has proved to be a challenge!  I have had to rely heavily on my organization skills to meet my project deadlines.  Being busy does make me happy so, all is good (Especially when I can keep it all together. lol)

Happy day!

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.
