Playing with Vinyl

Hope you are enjoying this Memorial Day Weekend!  I went over to Geralyn’s House to help make signs for her new store.  We played with the silhouette and it was my first time using the vinyl and here are some of the things I did:

Let’s Get Shabby Challenge #11

Just seem to be getting under the wire with these challenges!  LOL  Our inspiration this challenge was this picture:

 LGS april 25th 10 A

This is a colour challenge which I was disappointed I could not find my original pictures so I had to go with these for now. 

IMG_0540  I the edges with my new toy the Distrezz-it-All, I used Ranger alcohol ink butterscotch to ink Basic Grey Bee crystal, hand cut the bee’s nest and used ranger distress inks, prima sunflower vine and the packaging from the prima brown vine.

IMG_0541 Close-up… I used to smock Gabby’s dresses when she was little.  I made the dress and we used her cabbage patch doll’s hat.  LOL

This is the picture I am looking for and will replace these with this one when I find it.

IMG_0537 Jimmy had an Embroidery Business and used these pictures for his catalog long time ago.

IMG_0525 I use to love to smock but with severe Rheumatoid arthritis I’m just not able, too.  I have quite a few dresses of her that I just love and still cherish.

IMG_0533    Aren’t the bee buttons so cute!  Now my friend Marlene (The Queen Bee) would love a dress like this!  ;o)  Well, we have a big scrapbooking expo her in New Jersey tomorrow.  Hope to find some goodies.  Have a BEE~utiful weekend!  Hugz, Z

Copic~Art Canvas

I was lucky enough this weekend to get treated to a class by my best friend Ellen.  I told her I was not getting involved in copic markers, and she wanted me to experience the technique.  We used airbrushing techniques, Memory capsule, faux metal, grunge and many more techniques.

IMG_0469 Here are a few more close-ups:

IMG_0469 IMG_0469 Thanks Ellen for a great class and Rose who was the instructor.  Have a great week! Hugz, Z
