I'm really digging the look of steampunk jewelry! And I was lucky enough to jump into a swap as an angel, and finally had my chance to give it a whirl. Well, all my colored resin pieces where a flop. And my orginal version of this charm was also a disaster. And finally I got it together, and came up with these.
I kinda wish I would I have punked them a little more. But hopefully after the swap, I'll have a better idea of what and where I'm going with these.
And here are my Halloween Recipes. I think they turned out cute.
Here is my recipe page for the Dr. Seuss swap on Two Peas.
I really had to step out of the box for this one. So I ended up doing a play on the book cover, but spiced it up a little. I found a pic of the fish and colored them with copics. Then sealed the squares with Glossy Accents so there was some depth. As a background I used a Hero Arts dots stamp, with Jenny Bowlin Chicken Feed ink. For the water I used crape paper and ruffled it, then used 2 different stitches along the bottom.
Yes... I'm kinda addicted to recipe swaps right now. I must admit I like to do them in groups of no more than 16ish. 20+ and I'm bored of my own design. lol! So anywho... here are 3 I've finished recently.
Okay! I'm in luv with Pinterest! And it's my go to place for ideas. So when I signed up for a brownie recipe swap, I started pouring over pics. And I fell in luv with the idea of the brownie pops.
One of my own personal goals for each recipe swap I participate in is to actually make the recipe, than take a picture of what I made. So here is the pictures from my Lemon Salt Scrub & Brownie Pops. Pics of the actual recipes pages coming soon!
I'm finally doing swaps again! Yeah! I must say, there is alot of rules when joining one now. But that's kinda a good thing. Cause let me tell ya, 10 years ago swappin' was a risky business.
So this swap is for Rolodex cards with a quote. I originally wanted to use the quote "When life hands you lemons, make lemon cupcakes". But I just couldn't get the cupcakes to look how I pictured in my head. So I switched to a quote from a Stampin Up stamp set (Like it a Latte). I just adore this set!! One of my favs hands down.
Anywho... this is what I came up with.
On the back I added some tickets stamped with a set from Papertrey Ink, that included my name & date. There is some sparkle on these cards, sadly you can't really see that in the pic.
