More Letter Love and....

Here's is another assignment form Letter Love Class

I used a Pitt Pen (medium) and colored it with Pan Pastels and Copic Markers.  I am having fun with this class.  I am leaving tonight to visit my Mom and will be taking my Ipad, markers and my Letter Love Journal so I can play while there.  

I also did a little artwork from The Art of Wild Abandonment Class by Junelle Hallstrom Jacobsen.

It was a really fun class..Junelle is such an encouraging, kind and loving teacher.

Everything's coming up.....sunflowers

Yes, more sunflowers..,made this pencil holder for my desk...just a little more happiness.....

More Sunflowers:)

I love sunflowers....they just make me feel so happy.  Therefore I am loving the May Stamp of the Month.  Here are some coasters I made using tiles, tissue paper, copic markers and the stamp set.  

 I stamped the image on the tissue paper, colored the image with the copics and then applied it to the tile with Mod Podge (matte finish) and then glued cork to the bottom. I still need to seal them with varnish or sealer before I can use them, but they make me very happy!!!!

Sparks Banner

I just had to share this with my blogging buddies.  I am a Sparky Awana Leader at my church and our year has come to an end, with our Awards Night tonight. I was asked to make a Sparky sign and this is what I came up with.....

I am so excited with how stinkin' cute it turned out.  I used my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut all the pieces.  Sparky is made of circles and ovals...thank goodness!  I love to make banners and was so thrilled when told I could do a banner instead of a poster.  Each pennant is 11 1/2 inches and Sparky is 6 inches.  Love it;)
