Family Graphic

Hey Everyone! Just stopping by to give you this little freebie I made featuring these gorgeous vintage calligraphy feathers. These are one of my favorite graphics. this would make a darling home decor project transferred onto wood or canvas. If you make something with it I would love to see! I've included it as a .jpg or .png with transparent background for you.


Labelled Herb Pots

Wow, so a lot has happened since I last posted and the biggest news is that my hubby and I bought a house! We moved in July15th and since then my world has exploded with creative possibilities. I've been thrift shopping furniture like crazy and for the first time I have the space to plant a garden! Also, I now have a huge, out of this world studio that I spend most of my time in : ). I wanted to start posting more often as a chronicle of my new creative journey so thank you for coming along for the ride!

My project today was to spiff up some plain clay pots to use in my container kitchen garden. I'm hoping to have raised beds eventually but for now i'm starting things simple with pots. I bought some delicious smelling Morrocan mint and needed a pot to plant it in. For those of you who don't know about mint, its super easy to grow but is also very invasive so it should always be planted in a container unless you want an entire garden full of mint. Here is my project photo:
I used Americana paint in Bahama blue and then used Martha Stewart silk screens and adhesive stencils to add the letters and embellishments. This is the first time I've used the adhesive stencils and they are fantastic. They are a thicker, rubbery material with a cling type adhesive and they worked well on the pot and would do even better on a less porous surface. After the paint was dry I applied some Americana clear creme wax that I bought for redoing furniture and then some rubbed on some creme wax in golden brown to give it an aged look. I will post a picture of my growing little garden once Its a bit more put together : ). Thanks for reading!


Spring Home Decor Project

Hey Everyone!

I'm here to share a pretty little home decor project I just finished. I still have my winter decorations up but they are going bye bye at the end of January so I thought I would get a jump start on some brighter Spring decor. I used my Silhouette and my new "My Garden" clipart set. It comes with .svgs so you can use any of it with your Silhouette! Here is the set
 And here is the little decor piece I made:
 I used the back out of an old frame and just glued some pretty paper on the front before mounting my piece.
 I layered the flowers and accented with some glitter glue, I love how it turned out and you can layer yours however you want! The more delicate leaves I printed straight on the background, saving time and making assembly way easier.


Mojo Monday 266

Hey all!

I'm here to share a fun little card I made based on a sketch from this week's Mojo Monday entry. I also used a few new sets of mine that are up in my Etsy shop.

Here is the sketch I used:

And here is my take on it:

The owls are from my "Snowy Owl" set which was another collaboration between my sister and I.
 I printed everything and then cut the pieces with my Silhouette. The snowflake paper and sentiment are from another owl set called "Winter Owls". The berries are glittered with diamond glaze and ArtC glitter my husband bought me as a stocking stuffer for Christmas last year (A man that buys me glitter? *swoon*). I added a rhinestone to the sentiment for a little sparkle and then finished it off with a dupioni silk ribbon bow. 

Here are the full sets that I used:

Also, I have been experimenting with printing on vintage book pages using some of my vintage flower and fruit illustrations and did these pieces for my boss to hang in her home.

Won't these be just gorgeous framed and hung side by side? It was super easy to do, I just taped the vintage book page in the middle of a piece of copy paper (make sure your tape isn't too sticky or it will tear the paper) and ran it through my inkjet printer.

Thats all for now, thanks for dropping by and be sure to enter this week's Mojo Monday contest!

Sihouette Sketch Challenge

Hey All!

I'm here today to share a little Silhouette project with you that I made using the sketch over at the Silhouette Blog.

I created this card using my Showers and Flowers clipart set. You can get the set as a .svg file which you can then easily manipulate in Silhouette Studio. I used a tag and border shape from the Silhouette store and then made my own washi shape by just taking a rectangle and giving it some ragged edges using the knife tool. Then I filled it with some cute paper from my Carnival Stripes Collection.

 I printed the sentiment and dotted white line on the tag and cut everything out. The tag, cloud, and star were popped up with pop dots and then I added a touch of sparkle on the star with diamond glaze and Martha Stewart glitter. The whole thing was super easy thanks to my Silhouette!
