Altered Embroidery Hoop

I love altered ART, and all the different ways you can alter just about anything... We have a monthly altered ART swap in our group https://groups.io/g/CreatingARTFriendships.. This month the swap was to alter an embroidery hoop.. I have never attempted this before, so I was excited to work on this.. Here is what I came up with....


I LOVE the way it turned out, What do you think?? I made up a bunch of different flowers and used some of them in this hoop.. I love to make my own flowers, as well as all of my embellishments..


This picture shows a bit of a close up, and shows how I raised the frame with cheese cloth behind it..
This was a FUN swap and am looking forward to the next one, we are doing an altered CD..

Thank-you so much for visiting my blog!! Have a blessed day!

Washi Tape Card...

I have to admit I have never used washi tape for a card... I do like the way I used it and how it looks on this card.. The flowers are colored with sharpies, and matched perfectly with the washi tape..  


I used the black cardstock as the card, and layered teal and white cardstock on top.. The flowers are raised with foam to give it a little pop...


I entered this card into the following challenges...

Bird feeder....

I had found on pinterest these cute little bird feeders made using wine bottles... Well... I just happen to have SEVERAL wine bottles... LOL
I love wine, and had saved the bottles thinking I could use them for crafts, I probably have over 40 saved, I had to start throwing them away... Anyways, I have so many ideas stored away for using the wine bottles for crafts... SO.. hopefully I will get to do more using them...
Anyways I did get to make this cute bird feeder and love it!!


I have it hanging on my back fence above my garden, and bird bath... I love to sit out on my back patio with my morning coffee watching the birds and hearing their chirps..
This was really easy to make and brightens up the fence for my birdies...
If you would like to give it a try check out pinterest for homemade bird feeders..
Thank-you so much for visiting me today and have a blessed day!

ART Journal Pages...

Hello.... I wanted to share a couple of the pages I made for a friend, who is working on an ART journal.. There are a few of us working on ART journals, myself included and we are swapping pages within the group. The theme of her Art journal is "Wings", and here is what I came up with for her journal.. 

This is the first spread I made... This is the first time for me making an ART journal, and I am really liking the fact of a keepsake book of my friends art.. I will say I am learning more and more as I play with this.. Anyways, here is my second spread...


I am hoping they are well liked by my friend and that they will work for her "Wings" ART journal...
This is all I have for now, but will be sharing more pages as I make them for my ART journal or for other friends creating a journal.. Thank-you so much for stopping by to visit my blog.. Have a Wonderful day!
