Stripes, rope & birds… oh my!
Take a peak at my mixed-media nautical art. I painted a canvas red, some book pages white (leaving a few words on each strip), and then taped the pages and some rope ribbon onto the red canvas. The words that are left on the book strips say:
“telling me he loved me”, “you are so beautiful”, “vacations to the sea”, “by the shore”, “far away”, and “excitement”.
I also made a little bird charm out of shrink plastic…
This has been a rather crafty weekend :)
Today I made trip to the thrift store and picked up some old picture frames. I’ve spotted a few tutorials on how to make your own jewelry holder out of an old photo frame and decided to give it a try.
I scored all of these photo frames for $25! Below is the frame I chose to use for this project. I removed the glass, flower and backing from the frame.
Here are the supplies I used for this project: photo frame, spray paint, wire and a package of screw eyes.
The frame was already gold, but I wanted it to be shinier so I spray painted it with metallic paint.
I then screwed in the screw eyes and attached the wire at both ends. That was it! Below is my finished product. Pretty and functional, don’t you think?
Check out these envelopes made from a book of old maps…

Globes seem to be popping up in interior design everywhere you look. Check out these crafty globes by ImagineNation (clever name!). You can purchase them on their website here, or why not grab some paint and modge podge and create some of your own?
I think I love the “Where the Wild Things Are” globe best!
The countdown for Tacoma’s Art on the Ave has commenced! My friend Liisa and I will be sharing a booth and selling some of our creations. Here are a few sets of magnets that I will be offering:
These were super easy and fun to make! I picked up some flat glass marbles on sale at a local craft store. The public domain images were found online, sized down, and then printed on my inkjet printer. I used Modge Podge to paste the image to the marble and then cut the image out. The next step will be to affix the magnet to the back of the marble and then they will be ready to go!
