Art Journal Page Using A Resist Technique

Hello! Today I am sharing an art journal page I made using a resist technique using paint.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.
Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

Below is a video tutorial showing exactly how I created my project.
Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and click the bell so you will get updates when I post a new video.


For my art journal page, I first painted my journal page with several colors of acrylic paints and then used The Crafter's Workshop TCW866 Cypress Tree Stencil with some Cosmic Shimmer Resist Paste. Then painted over everything with a light colored acrylic paint. Make sure to watch my video above to see how I did it


I traced around the tree with a Marvy DecoColor Pen in gold.

I design for several companies because I genuinely love their products! Anything I recommend on my blog is something that I genuinely love and regularly use. I buy most of my own supplies. However, I do receive some free products to work with, and I sometimes make money for the projects I make.

Christmas Ho Ho Ho Scrapbook Layout

Hello! Today I am sharing a Christmas Ho Ho Ho scrapbook layout of my daughter visiting Mr. & Mrs. Claus. She really didn't want to and told me that she was too old but I kinda made her anyways. Gotta get in those photo ops! lol


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

On the background, I sprayed some color sprays and then used The Crafter's Workshop White Pearl Modeling Paste with Creative Embellishments Fairy Dust Stencil. The patterned paper I used is a really old collection from Cosmo Cricket and has been discontinued. It is nice to be able to use some of the things up that I have had in my craft room for so long.


I used the Creative Embellishments Ho! Ho! Ho! Title and painted all the pieces with some The Crafter's Workshop White Gesso. Then added some red acrylic paint on the candy canes and candies and on 2 of the Ho Ho's.


Then I took the North Pole sign from the Creative Embellishments Christmas Signs set and dry brushed it with some white gesso.

DIY Holiday Gift Bags

Hello! Are you ready for Christmas? I am getting there but still have a little more to do.
Today I am sharing how I decorated my own gift bags. These are really quick and easy to do and can be customized to any color or design.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support! 

Below is my video tutorial showing exactly how I created my project.

To create these gift bags is actually really easy to do. All you need are some plain bags stencils and any kind of mixed media products you want. For the blue and white mini gift bag, I used The Crafter's Workshop TCW5020 Snowflakes Stencil with some of The Crafter's Workshop TCW9012 Shimmery Goodness and blue acrylic paint mixed in with it.


For the large gift bag, I first dry brushed on some of The Crafter's Workshop TCW9001 White Gesso and then used The Crafter's Workshop TCW870 Fir Branch Stencil with some Arteza Real Brush Pens. Then I flicked on some gold ink from my Wink of Stella Brush Marker and also highlighted around the pinecone with it too.


Then for the star mini gift bag, I used The Crafter's Workshop TCW5004 Star Shower Stencil and some of The Crafter's Workshop TCW9036 Champagne Gold Modeling Paste and then outlined the stars with a Signo White Pen.

Home Organization Made Easy

I have had a junk drawer in my kitchen that needed some major organizing. I had things like cat toys, rubber bands, tools, batteries and more. I couldn't ever find anything in it, especially the right size battery I was looking for.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products.

Deflecto's Carousel Rotating Organizer with 9 bins was the perfect solution to clean out my junk drawer. Since the carousel rotates I was able to move it into my pantry and can rotate it to find the bin I need. Plus, now I can use that drawer in my kitchen for "kitchen" things.
I love how the bins are clear making it really easy to see what is in each one. So things like batteries are now organized by size and quick and easy to find the right one.

  
The Deflecto Carousel Rotating Organizer has 9 bins. Three of the bins are 6" tall and six of the bins are 3" tall. Perfect for storing small and tall items.
The base rotates so you can spin it around to find what you need quick and easy.


Each bin is a clear canister and has a snap-tight lid that can be easily removed to get what you need inside each bin.
