Blog Challenge Rubberstamp

This is my Rubber Stamp Challenge for my Group on Mondays. 
I was just in a real relaxed mode and didn't even think about this project and I find this is a great way to relieve stress.  I found this piece of scrap paper in my paper stash and it was a practice piece for Tim Holtz Distressed ink pad, color was a yellow sorry I don't remember the color as it was done sometime ago when I first got my collection of his stamp pads.  I had just purchased a lot of supplies for a stamping store that was closing out her supplies and I was just picking up the stamps and playing like a 2 yr old and pick up a stamp and hit paper. This is the way my little 2 yr old great grandson does grandma stamps. Hit pad, Hit paper, Lol.  

My out of the Box is Mixed Media and Steampunking. I am a person that needs instructions and structure when it come to my painting, and colored pencils.  This is going to be a great ride.

One day a week I have a young Student that comes and we will be designing together. I am so excited.

Blog Steampunk Butterly box

This is a Steampunk box I did in a Kelly Hoernig Steampunk  on line class it was a great experience. This was my first online class group I have done and I really enjoy the grungy and steampunk look.
I use a wooden box and Tim Holtz assorted papers to collage the background and the left butterfly wing and some lace I received in a birthday gift stash from a good friend Von Reeder.
The body was done with nuts and bolts and found objects.

Welcome Autumn

It is now officially autumn in Missouri and our leaves are turning and weather is getting cooler, nothing more beautiful than the Ozarks this time of year.
We are all getting geared up for our fall craft shows and staring new classes.

I have changed my style of art this fall and will be doing more mixed media and card making . This is a new out of the box experience for me which I having fun learning to use all the new toys I have to play with, a cuttlebug, and  sticker maker, and punches and stamps and scoring board and a lot of new templates and stencils.
