Art GRIP® Aquarelle Valentines

 Hello! Dana Tatar here today sharing some valentines that I created with the Red Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. I used the watercolor pencils along with some Gel Medium to create the string heart embellishments for my valentines. The richly pigmented water-soluble lead from the pencils turns into permanent, waterproof and lightfast watercolor, so my dyed string hearts are just as vibrant as the watercolor on the paper.

$5 Gift Series: Bracelet Cuffs


A challenge was issued to create a gift item for $5 or under!  I can't turn down a good challenge so I dug up items that I already had:  scraps of canvas, stamps, beads, and a bit of lace.  The result was a pair of artistic bracelet cuffs.  One for me to keep and one to give!  That's a win-win gift if you ask me!

It's Christmastime...time for making ornaments!
We were asked to prepare an inexpesive project (under $5.00) and  this is probably less than that depending on what you have on hand- everything I used was already in my stash.
So lets gather up some  supplies!

Altered Ipad Cover

Full Cover


December is fast approaching! and before we know it, Christmas will be here! With that in mind, I went to town with altering this old iPad cover that I had stowed in my stash of alterables that I've been hoarding :) This cover was altered to hold wish cards for this Christmas and New Year. It can also be used to store advise cards or even to just store away the pretty things you will receive this festive season.


Here's my altered cover and a guide on how I made it look the way it does.

Getting ready for Christmas

Two cards_1

Hi there!

It's Linda here!  I know, I know, it's only JUST October and I'm already talking about Christmas but trust me, it'll be here before we know it!  If every other year is anything to go by, I'll be freaking out around December 20th because I have ZERO cards made so I thought I'd get started early :)

Today I thought I'd show you some cards that demonstrate how well Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products (specifically Gelatos ®) can work for simpler crafting projects.  For those of you who aren't 'into' mixed media or canvasses, altered items etc, today's post is for you :)
