Faux Stained Glass Class

About a month ago, it was decided that I needed to share with my co-workers what I had learned at a Faux Stained Glass Class that I took thanks to my sister's arm twisting.  We used a Chisel Tip Sharpie, Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks, and Blending Alcohol along with some individualized creativity.  There were six individuals who participated and this is what they created.  I have taken classes where everyone is expected to basically make the same thing and that is not what I wanted.  I love that they are so different and most of us even had fun!

Cubs Pallet Flag

A quick post because I wanted to share this a project that was finished earlier this year.  My DH put the boards together last year and I painted the blue square and red stripes shortly after.  Then I STOPPED (because I could not decide what to do with the blue square...one star, nine stars, decisions decisions) and stored it behind my chair.

Then inspiration struck me while on Pinterest (of course) and I was able to finish this beauty.  The white circle was bought at Michael's (unpainted) and the UBS was bought at Hobby Lobby...I think.  I cut the blue circle and the C out of plywood with a little help from my baby brother.  They aren't perfect but with the help of sandpaper it turned out pretty darn good.

I am so glad I waited to finish this project until it all came together.  My nephew is a proud Cubs fan in a family of loyal Cardinals, so he was the the lucky recipient!

Baby Card

I was asked to make a baby card by a co-worker who was in charge of a baby gift for another co-worker.  I  did not have much notice so I went to my letter sticker stash to get started.  The balloon accent was an afterthought that ended up being the perfect accent.

My Faves for 2015

Just a quick post to share the cards that made my top ten list for 2015 in no particular order.   Looking forward to trying some new techniques in 2016.
