Mirror, Mirror

Hi everyone! January is OVER ALREADY. omg crazy!

Anyone else into the rusty and patina-y looks? I love them! I finally bit the bullet and splurged on the effects pastes sets from Finnabair. I was a little intimidated at first on how to use them and what to use them on, lol, but then I found this neat video from Keren Tamir on YouTube:



Seemed easy (and fun) enough! My first "victim", heh heh, was this plastic mirror I found at a thrift store:

Snow

Hi everyone!

I have a good friend who performs in a local production of "The Nutcracker" every year. This year she was able to dance "Snow" or Waltz of the Snowflakes on stage with her daughter. Mommy daughter ballet? Love! I really wanted to make her something to remember the occasion so I snagged a picture of them backstage and created this mixed media canvas for her:

Just Add Glitter and Blog

Hi everyone!

Let's catch up...

As you can see, I'm slowly getting the blog completely reorganized. My new look is thanks to BD Web Studio. Emily was dreamy to work with, totally recommend her if your blog or site needs a makeover! So between that and correcting EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. of my blog posts, things are starting to look better around here.

It's also put me in the mood to create again. I've been crocheting and doing some cross stitch recently but haven't really felt connected to get back to gluing stuff to other stuff. I experienced a miscarriage a couple of months ago (a surprise pregnancy and our first loss) so I'm just now coming out from under that cloud.

Holidays went well, we added in a trip to Universal Studios and Disney World, which was great fun.

Two Jyn Erso's met Starlord and Baby Groot! W00t!
