A Bowl of Yummy Goodies

Here is my small Washi tape collection.  I thought that this new "must -have" craft supply was gone and forgotten but it continues to fascinate crafters in every type of crafty way. It now has captured my fascination.

My Altered Composition Planner/Art Journal

I was inspired to create another altered composition book but with a different twist.  This composition serves as a planner/art journal.  I'm loving the journey.  So here are just a few pages from that planner.  I was inspired by the talent Claudia Rossi (YouTube) and there are several other artists that are doing this project as well. So check out Claudia's channel and goggle some others to see how much fun this is.

Aside from doing layouts, there are other creative ways to display your memories.  With a little ingenuity and some found objects you will be amazed at the things you can create.  My project this month fits that description.  When I do my "junkin around" at my local thrift stores, I always grab a few picture frames.  These are perfect fits for a vast array of crafty projects.  With this project I adhered some lightweight wire to an inexpensive picture frame, applied some paint and in an instant( not really that fast) a nifty home decor piece was born.  Of course I added some embellishments( but not too heavy so as not to take away from the focal point) The instant photo frame was cut using a cookie cutter die and the "Captured" die-cut was cut using my Silhouette Cameo.  So why not try to craft up some of your own "instant" memories.
