Be Happy....

Good morning!

Today I'm sharing a fun project I did
using a bunch of different stencils and paint.....


This was done on mdf board.

I added some book text and layered a bit of gesso,
then came the stencil fun!

Once my background was done 
I added a couple pieces of ephemera that I had,
added the heart using an old piece of 
Basic Grey patterned paper 
and the "Be Happy" quote came from a piece of printed tissue paper.

The butterfly...
I have these old acetate die-cut pieces from K&Company that I never know what to do with so I thought why not try adhering it with some matte medium and see what happens and it worked pretty well!

I finished with some white paint spatters and doodling.


Thank you for stopping by!
Be Happy!

Christmas gifts

Morning friends! 

Today's quick share are the gifts I made for my granddaughters this year for Christmas.

They love it when Grammy makes things for them.


They all got a similar canvas. 
They were very happy to see them and couldn't wait to get them on their walls! 

Thanks for the visit!

Pretty purple card...

Hi everyone!

I was digging through my stash of Gecko Galz papers 
and when I found these pretty purple flowers 
I had to make a card


I fussy cut a couple of flowers,
used one for the front of the card and a smaller one on the inside.


 Below you can see a bit of shine from the background paper that I used,
of course it looks better in person.


I'm linking up at


Have a great week!
Thanks for stopping by!

Vintage tv.....

Good morning! 

I'm showing off a Christmas gift I altered for my daughter this year.


You can see a bit of shine on the picture below,
I used teal, black and silver paints on it.
I love the shimmer of the silver.


I added pearls around the outside 


The colors in the photo below are more true than the others.


Thanks for visiting!
Hope you're having a great weekend!
