a little share for you ....

... got a little scrappy last night and did this for this weeks color combo @ color combo galore... go check it out...

"you today"

... next is "miss wally's mist"...

... ok ... what happened was i had to post my glimmer mist for one of the projects... thinking to myself that i would be ok with out it.... "not really"... what was i going to use... as i was going thru my art box i remember i had all this ink from my art classes... and then it dawned on me to use it in the same manner as the glimmer mist ... of course it would work... so armed with a empty spray bottle i poured a wee bit in, added some water and began spraying... love it!!!!
i know i just can't go and buy all the glimmer mist bottles so my second option is to buy some more ink pots and make my own... it is less than $5.00... you can't go wrong... its drawing ink and so it dries very quickly too... that's my tip... i also know that's its not new that others have been doing this but i just wanted to share this with you just in case someone out there thinks yeah!!! i've got that stuff too... brilliant miss wally!!!!


... calling this "porgie's flower"...

Materials: fabric, felt, pearl, needle and cotton...and a sewing machine.


Step 1: Grab some fabric 2 inch strip as long as you like - fold in half and sew so you have a tube.


Step 2: Hand stitch the end of the tube to the felt circle. Now twist and wrap and add a little stitch just to hold it in place so it does not unroll.


Step 3: Keep twisting and wrapping and adding a stitch here and there.


Step 4: Finish off by tucking and stitching the end under. Now just stitch the pearl on to finish it off...
so you likey me flower or what!!!!!!

thanks for stopping by mwah xxx
