the diy frame match game

Today at the DIY Design blog, I'm sharing this trio of frames, who received a match game upgrade, using Americana Chalky Finish paint and Crème Wax, plus some DecoArt Chalkboard Paint to complete the grouping.

Thank you for stopping by!

circle gel prints--spotlight!

Ever pull a buncha gel prints, and then stash them away?  Hey, there is nothing wrong with that--art therapy is a good thing.  However, recently, I tried out a circle Gel Press plate, and wanted to use the circle prints for something . . .

Several found there way into a bird themed board book, you can see one above.  The others utilize the circle as a spotlight, focusing attention on a great little poem, and the other another fine feathered friend.  You'll find those two book pages in my post at Altered Pages Artsociates, HERE.

Happy Thursday to you!!!

I'm back, with a few random pics

Oh, please, you didn't even notice I was gone.  We were in South Carolina for a little vacation-- neither the husband nor I had been there before.  It was a wonderful trip, very interesting, very pretty.

it's some kind of moss, very small, but so pretty!

It was weird to walk along a street full of prerevolutionary houses that people live in now. 

But, you know, I'm from Missouri, so . . .
