Two Peas Class - 4 x 6 Photo Love

Twopeas has great classes offered every month. Here is a layout I did for the 4 x 6 Photo Love class this month

DS is getting ready for job fairs and job interviews! We had to go buy some clothes. Last weekend we had a lesson in tying a tie. He still can't do it:)

Moon

I tired to get a few shots of the Super Moon






St. Patrick's Day

When Rob was in Kindergarten the teacher had them build a trap to catch the leprechaun on St. Paddy's day! For years after, we built traps at home using Lucky Charms as bait! Every year I get him a stash of green goodies - candy, toys, etc. for St.  Patrick's day.

Helmar USA Design Guest Designer Submission

After much thought, I am throwing my hat in the ring for the Helmar Guest Design Team call. Thanks for looking!

Unfortunately, the only  Helmar product I could find was the Acid Free glue but I put it to good use:)









This glue works well for adhering flowers as well as alphabet letters.  Also used it for the banner. Love this old Bo Bunny paper. Flowers include Prima and others. Thickers alphabets.




















This glue was perfect for getting my banner in the right place! Again also used it on the alphabet letters.  Dream Street pattern papers. Jenni Bowlin journaling circle. Thickers alphabets.



















I used a lined pad for my gratitude journal. First I adhered a collection of old book and music pages to the cover. Used my glue to adhere the lace trim, ribbon, butterfly and flowers.



















I used my wonderful glue for this layout. The flower was made of a ribbon like piece that was holding the tie to the shirt in the box. I saved it because I thought I could put it to good use. I tied a knot and glued that to a piece of cardstock. Then I twisted and glued as I went around. Paper is Bo Bunny. Sketch from Twopeas.















My Helmar worked great for making sure all the embellies stayed put on this travel album I am making for a friend.

She Art Workshop

Christy is going to be offering her She Art Workshop starting again Aprill 11th. I HIGHLY recommend signing up for this class. I cannot tell you how much fun I am having. I am so non artistic! but even I can do this.

Christy has amazing videos each week which details each part of the process. She goes over everything from paints and inks to tools and papers. Then she shows you how to use them! Each week just keeps getting better and better.

If you sign up please say that I referred you. She is having a contest for the Almuni:)

Still at it

I got involved in another She Art girl. This one started with a beautiful old black and white page of butterflies from a book. Somehow it morphed into this~!

My Second She Art Girl

I have been fighting with this girl for days now. I wanted to make a birthday present for an aunt. I used old book pages that had quotes and illustrations. Lots of paint and stamping. Not sure if it is too busy, overdone, etc.

She Art Girl - Faith

I am so enjoying Christy Tomlinosn's class!! Here is my first girl. I used paper for the background covered in paints, ink, stamps, rubons, doodling! I need more practice with the hair but am pretty happy with her.
