Hero Arts club at Stamp Antonio Arts

Tomorrow is our November meeting at Stamp Antonio Arts and Fall is in the air! We will be making these three autumn themed cards. Thank you, Hero Arts, for most of the ideas! We are using Tim Holtz Distressed Inks in Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, and Barn Door. Also, lots of pearlized water or Perfect Pearl mist. You will need some markers, too--copic or watercolor, or maybe pencil if you prefer. We hope to see you there!

Tagalicious Tuesday

Texas Pride Chipboard book

And you thought it was going to say "Tagalicious Tuesday!" This coming Saturday I will be presenting this red, white, and blue "Texas Pride" chipboard book which participants can fill with their own Texas pride pictures. The theme I chose for my book was "Family Reunion" and it shows pictures of my husband's parent's 50th wedding anniversary. (and you thought that was supposed to be gold and white!--This is Texas, remember!) Other themes for the book could be: Texas travel/vacation, summer fun, backyard barbeque, visit to the Alamo, etc. Once the pictures are set against the Bobunny Liberty themed papers, Texas themed stamping and red, white and blue embellishments fill the top-hinged book. You will have to come by the store to see the actual pages! I had a lot of fun (and some angst with the journaling--that always happens with family stuff) filling this album. Texas Pride!
