Projects before I was MIA...

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been MIA... as you may have heard from my YouTube videos, my whole family caught a virus/bug and we were down for the count for over a week. It was ugly. I'm just happy to say that we're all much better and the illness is past us. Whew!!!

So I wanted to share a few projects I had worked on that I haven't had a chance to post. Hope you are having a great weekend and are looking forward to the July 4th holiday like I am... can't wait!!! :-)

hugs!
Ar :-)


This is an altered "P" I made for my friend Paula over at "JournalArtista". I used Golden Glass Bead Gel, glimmer mist, Ranger color wash, Perfect Pearls and acrylic paint to distress the "P." I made the flower using Prima's eLine flowers and the metal embellishments are by Tim Holtz, sentiment by Invoke Arts, ribbon by Martha Stewart.


This is the Father's Day card I made for hubby. I also used Golden glass bead gel for the background mixed with Basics acrylic paint and sprayed with color wash & perfect pearls. The sentiment is from a Crafty Secrets stamp set and the graphic is from the Proper Gentleman paper collection by Graphic 45.

This is a card I created for Christina over at "Chris416ward" on YouTube. I love this TGF image and had a lot of fun coloring it with my Copic markers.

Hi Arlene,

I really love the card you made for Christina. I bought 2 Copic Markers from my LSS and I'm afraid to use it. :P I'm scared I'll get hooked and will NEED all colors out there. hehe

Have a Happy 4th of July!
