techniques 21 & 24

Here's 2 more fun techniques. The first one uses glaze pen, transparencies and paint. The second is paint stamping with things found around the house. I used a cardboard tube, the top of a dry wall screw and a lego. I had to promise my son that his legos would not be ruined if I used them with paint... finally he agreed to let me use them :)

my dolphin

Can't believe that I don't have a picture to go with this...but my all star swimmer has been moved on to the dolphin class. Only 4 lessons at the bluegill level. It probable was due to the fact that the other 2 kids never showed up for class so he got private lessons at the regular class price for me...woohoo! Will definately be taking pictures the next class!

some more techniques

These are still from the awesome online class I'm taking. Only one more week left and I have a TON to do! yikes!!

Here are a couple techniques from the on-line class I'm taking. I'm WAY behind so I've been busy trying to catch up before the class is done. I did about 4 more today, but need to get them shot so I can post them.
Happy Creating!

friend's b-day

Got some crafting done the other night. Made card and photo album gifts for a friend at work. They have these great little albums at Target. They have covers that are different colors, but you can also slide these covers out to decorate however you like! Forgot to take pictures of the backs but used coordinating paper. Way fun and didn't take too much time. I'm gonna have to stock up on these albums. Not too happy with the card, but I did that last so my creative juices were all used up. Got lots more b-days coming up so I'll have more art/gifts to post soon!
