Altered Spools for Prima

post signatureHello everyone! I want to share a project that was really fun for me to create!
I know as crafters we all buy ribbons that come on those cardboard spools. I keep 
EVERYTHING Lol, so after seeing I had about 30 of these i wanted to upcycle them. 
In keeping with that theme I went outside to do some weeding around our fence line and 
was so inspired by the roots I was pulling out! Sounds so silly, but the organic texture was so
pretty. I immediately wnet in and started creating ( sorry honey, he had to finish the weeding lol.) 
The IOD paintables were perfect for this. All those wonderful prints really matched 
my mood. I kept with only a couple of colors and used the Oil Pastels and Color Bloom
sprays to do so. I hope you all lke my little spool picture holders :)
I will be teaching a LWP on the 14th on these. HOpe you will join me

Prima Bloom Girl Ornaments

post signatureHello crafty people :)
Dusting off my blog again, please excuse my absence! 
Hopefully you have been following along with Prima's 12 days of christmas! 
Some AMAZING inspiration going on! I got to create using Jamie's amazing
Bloom range. I decided to use the Birds stamp set. It is my favorite one, and just seemed
to go perfectly with Victorian Christmas papers.
