{Art Boards} Cross in the Window

Today I finished the four art boards I have been working on in Roben-Marie Smith's class called Paper to Painting. If you would like more information on the class, click here. In the class, we were to make three art boards but I was able to get four out of my work. I am very pleased at how they turned out, and I will be making more of these. They were so fun, and I learned a few tips along the way. First let me share the four boards together, then I will show them individually so you can see more of the detail.

While I love the grouping of boards, I do have a favorite. Can you guess which one? Which one is your favorite? I would love to know. My favorite is noted below the product list. :) I hope you have enjoyed these. And if you have never taken one of Roben-Marie's classes, this is a great one to start with! Thanks for stopping by! Blessings,

My favorite art board is the 6x6 because the cross looks like it's in a garden to me. :) How about you?

A Little Ribbon and Some Labels

Today I wanted to share a few little creations I made this weekend. I even finished some up before church this morning. Yes, I just can't seem to stay away from my studio over the past few days. Love it. Anyway, I thought you might like to see what I have created. I also wanted to share links with you so you too can create your own. I plan on using these on future creations. It was super fast to do these, and now I have my own fun stash that I created.

Most of you know that I have made my own crinkle ribbon out of seam binding for years. Well, here is what I made yesterday, and I just love them both. 

Use my instructions linked below to make your own but be sure you read the "don't" post also. Both of these posts are from 2012 but I still color my ribbon the exact same way. The only difference with the ribbon pictured above is that I used several colors of mist instead of just one or two. Fun, fun!

For 2017, I am thinking of making my own calendar following the Documented Life 2016 class. I purchased the class but I was never able to do it. My daughter had open heart surgery in February, and then a second heart surgery in March. Between her recovery and then cardiac rehab through July, I was way too busy to complete the project. So, I think I am going to do it for 2017! I am excited. Anyway, the class will not be held for 2017 but I believe you can still purchase the 2016 class for $12. Click here for details.

So, these labels I created below will be used in my calendar. I got this tutorial from Shelley Chavis. It's super easy and fun. There is also a different tutorial in the Documented Life 2016 class but of course, I can't share that. :) So to see Shelley's very easy tutorial, click here. The one thing I did differently is that I did not use a Sharpie around the edges. On the labels, I did use my Stabilo All pencil with a waterbrush though.

I hope you have enjoyed today's post. Have a blessed week ahead, and have fun creating!
