Resisting the urge to wash dishes!

Fabric transformation!! I love fabric and this is one of the most exciting things that I have done in a long while!!!

I love fabric so much more than I like washing dishes.. so a new use for dish detergent is for me. I love making my own decorated fabric for many purposes. Well when  I heard that you could use dish detergent to mask or create a frisket on fabric, I was sold. This detergent is brushed on and when dry keeps the paint from coloring the fabric. So I wanted to see what I could accomplish… Please I hope you enjoy my video.

Acrylic stamp squares
Heart stamps from the Rubber Stamp Depot available at AlteredPages
StaZon Ink Pad
thick dishwashing detergent
water (to rinse)
Iron to press with
airbrush (optional)
Rit dye fixative ( on hand)

Will be updating you with a finished project using this fabric and also many other ideas on using this technique!

Cinco de Mayo Hop

Hopping along on Cinco de Mayo!

My project is an easy one. I love to create personalized things and this chipboard  plaque was perfect. I used it, papers from the fabulous Sabor Papel company and my eBrush to create this plaque.

All my supplies! I love metallic Sharpies and they work great in my eBrush!

Taping down a stencil for some wicked alphabet lettering!

A quick cut and the background is done.

I love working with my eBrush and Sabor Papel makes such great fun. Don’t forget to craft everyday!

Incredible Egg Fun!

I love eggs…I clean the shells out if I am going to use them for baking or scrambling. I love the texture. I decided to create something a little different, a box made from an egg. I had to cut it in half it was fairly easy with a rotary grinder and a cut off wheel. I then used several of the products from AlteredPages including a Mailbox Muse stamp set.

Please let me know what you think of my crazy creation.

Steampunk Grumpies Goggles Journal Band/Bookmarker

This month I have had fun playing with a digital stamp. I am relatively new to them and find that they are super because you can resize them to suit your needs. I love the crisp look and find the Smeared Ink Steampunk Grumpies line filled with fun characters. I selected Steampunk Grumpies Goggles for my character. I decided a long time ago I wanted a book mark for my art journal. I dislike the cover that is more an advertisement for the company who produced it so I use the cardboard side as my cover. Well now my little buddy will have a great home holding my place as I work….

Berry Girl Sketch!

Berry Girl Sketch


I love colored pencils. I love all art mediums and media…lol…. Royal & Langnickel products are all over my studio and have been for years. I love their products and could barely contain my excitement when AlteredPages began carrying them. So today I am sharing a sketch of my grand-daughter in her berry picking finery. This is a simple quick sketch and will be a gift for the up and coming holiday season. I was so happy to see one of my handmade gifts finished 9 weeks before Christmas!! One down. I hope you enjoy my watercolor pencil sketch as I show you my process. I didn’t use my regular photo to rely on. This one was from my memory and I love it. 

I am no stranger to color pencils..

These are just a few of my pencil drawings. I hope you don’t mind me sharing. I do so you can see my love…and obsession.

Louisiana Masked!


I love Louisiana! I would love to share the feeling that exist there. The warmth, love and fun that we all share. I know that many people think of Louisiana as a place filled with party living lifetyles, Mardi Gras and indulgences. So much more than that. Louisiana is rich in history, dialects, and food. I hope that you can experience all of its beauty and people. I hope you enjoy my Mask of fun.
