Art can be very personal-so when another creator sends you a piece to finish, they are actually sending you a little piece of themselvesRead More
I hope you are all enjoying our month collaboration with Canvas Corp Brands. When I received my package I did a very happy dance. You may not know this, but I love to draw and getting a whole notebook with blank pages is like Christmas for me and with a super size too!!! So, inspired by summer, the beach, and sunsets here's my piece!
I wanted you all to see how gorgeous the High Impact Paint, Glimmer Glaze, and Glimmer Mist work with the Relics & Artifacts. And what's more summery than sea shells, right? The Coquille set works on mixed media projects, jewelry and even scrapbook layouts.
Milagros has prepared a Snapguide tutorial so you can create your own beach inspired journal of your own.
Don't forget we are having a giveaway at the end of the month. Here's the information.
2016 was a year of many adventures! One of them was the development of a stencil line based on my art journal entries with The Crafter's Workshop. At the recent Creativation show in Phoenix, they were finally revealed and of course I needed to see how well they paired with Relics & Artifacts®!
I thought Flora was the perfect pairing and after adding it in her hair, I decided to add some strands of Bohemian Jewels. They added the perfect flow to her hair! When you see her up close she glows with the foil! To be able to show part of her shine, I had to put her on an angle as foil tends to catch the light. I prepared for you a Snapguide tutorial so you can see the process of altering the Relics and the use of the brand new Transfer Gel by Deco Foil.
Since our challenge for you this month is #RA50ShadesofRed, I paired her with reds and pinks and I can't wait for you to see the paint I used on the Flora!
Since you already know our Christmas here in Puerto Rico lasts long into the New Year, I thought I would share this tree with you. If you take a closer look at the presents underneath the tree, you'll see they are all David Yurman bags. Yes, David Yurman, the jeweler! Don't I wish they were all for me, but an even closer look would reveal this: Relics & Artifacts® ornaments!!!!
I made *50* of these beautiful chandelier pendant ornaments for this display. My eternal thanks to David for rushing them out to me!
This year has been a whirlwind for me. I can't even begin to describe all the good things and opportunities I have been given. The words "grateful" and "blessed" have been on my heart all year. Going back to the way it all started, I remember doing my New Year's Resolution this way:
It was actually good to go back and read my last post of 2015 and all the hope I had for 2016. As the new year approaches, I bid you creativity, opportunities and wings, as I feel that on angel wings we soar!
Relics & Artifacts® Chandelier Pendants
That song positevely makes me happy, it's one of my faves every coming Christmas. I love making ornaments, decorating my home, and baking. I think my theme this year is trending towards gold Dresden, a definite fetish there as in my eyes Dresdens dress elegantly anything it touches! I also like the fact that just by looking at them I can find unusual shapes or uses for them!Read More
My first Cassiopeia's Throne was an adorable piece named Christmas Morning, I played with Apoxie sculpt to give you the feel of expensive fabric, a velvet throw and 2 sweet presents on top! So my best friend says: Christmas? You seriously skipped Halloween this year?Read More
A long time ago three sisters were born in the castle. You could tell them apart from the crowd because they shined. Dressed in the purest gold and silver threads, intricately embroidered by their skilled hands. They all had a golden sun emblazoned in their skirts, a symbol of their kingdom..........Read More
Experiments fascinate me. The thrill of going into uncharted territory and not knowing the outcome may frighten a lot of people but to me it's a "dive right in" kind of thing. One thing does take me out of my comfort zone and that little thing is called Patience.Read More
Ok, So I'm pretty excited about this... It's our very first RELICS & ARTIFACTS® Private Label Stock. Cassiopeia is queen of the celestial royal family and we thought her name was perfectly suited for our new mini throne wood craft blank!Read More
I recently read the book “Big Magic” by Elizabeth Gilbert and she has a chapter called “Scary Scary Scary” in which, no joke, I thought she was talking directly to me because I'm afraid of EVERYTHING!Read More
I had been told from when I was a small child that these plates contained the ashes of 'passed' relatives. I was told that in a time when families couldn't afford the beautiful glazed pots to store the ashes of their deceased loved ones in but desperately wanted to keep them close, they decided to start a family tradition of creating plates from the soil of the fields they worked. The soil was combined with the ashes of their loved ones.Read More
Many times in life, there are important milestones that change the path that we are traveling.Read More
I love the ocean, the sound of the waves, the fresh ocean air, the feel of the sand between my toes, walking along the beach just hoping to find a beautiful shell or maybe some sea glass.Read More
For me life wouldn't be worth living without this little bit of magic.Read More
Hi everyone! This summer has been a whirlwind of creativity. Goodness! Can you believe there are just two weeks remaining until my "Sacred Grace" workshop in northern California?Read More
This piece was inspired by a few of my favorite things. First of all, hearts! They are just a fabulous symbol of love and caring, which I think the world needs more of.Read More
Many times when I’m working with RELICS & ARTIFACTS® pieces, I never know exactly what my finished artwork will look like! Especially when I’m working on what I call 'home decor' pieces that are built on canvases – it becomes a journey determined on what embellishment pieces I select with a general idea of a color palette that I want to work with.Read More
