I am very excited to share my first project for the Roben-Marie Smith Design Team 2018.  I am in love with Roben-Marie’s Art Pops collections. They are so vibrant and colorful. I decided to create a doll using Roben-Marie’s cards, stickers and stamps.  She was really fun and turned out so darn cute.  I invite you to watch the step by step process video. Just follow the link I give above or below this post to Roben-Marie’s blog where you can find all the information you need to watch the video and make your own mixed media art doll.

Thanks for stopping by.

Yes, Another “Junk Your Stuff” Journal

Junk Your Stuff Journal 2

If you saw my video where I created the first “Junk Your Stuff” journal  (you can see that video here) then you will know that I had a lot of leftover paper from the paper pad I used.  was determined to use up that paper so I set about making another journal and I call this one “Junk Your Stuff Journal 2”.  Other than three or four sheets of the paper that I kept aside, I used up the rest of the paper pad.  Yay!!!  In this journal I also used up a bunch of fabric scraps, embellishments, ribbons and odd and end things I have had a while. I bound the journal with rings so it would expand easily and each page has three holes with large eyelets for stability.  Each page of the journal is a 12 x 12 sheet of paper folded in half. Then,  I stitched paper strips, tags, fabric strips and other things on each page. I just kept building layers and each page is different.   I love this journal, it’s so chunky and fun.  I don’t think of this journal as complete because I can keep adding to it. I haven’t decided what to actually use the journal for but I’ll think of something.  

See you soon,

Laurie

Sweet Little Burlap Journal

Sweet Little Burlap Journal

Can you believe January is almost over!!!  All I did was blink and poof, it was gone. lol

I have a little project I worked on last year that I never shared with you guys.  I have some rolls of burlap that I really love and I thought I would use some of it to create a little journal. Inside the journal I used up some 12 x 12  scrapbook paper I have had for a while. I just cut the 12 x 12 paper in half making them 12 x 6 pieces.  On the outside I used a lot of left over fibers I had in my stash as well as fabric, trim and lace scraps.  I used an old button and a piece of twine for the closure and the twine wraps around the journal giving it room to grow a little bit.   The tag on the front of the journal is a tag I used to wipe off excess paint from another project.  I left it in that ‘unfinished’ state and just glued it to the front of the journal. I really like how that looks.  I also added a smaller bit of lace scrap and a button to the tag.  I think it’s really cute and I love all of the texture and color it has.  It’s amazing what you can do with your scraps and leftover papers.  Give it a try.

See you soon,

Laurie
