So was catching up on my you tube channel and came across Ronda Palazzari video - Stenciled Album Cover it inspired me so much I immediately jumped up - and went to michael's used my 30% coupon and purchased the 3 ring 12x12 Album.

Pulled out a few different acrylic paints - and make up sponges that I cut in half to make last longer.  A bunch of stencils and stamps.    And I went for it.

I had my video running - so check out it.

I also did the side since it's going to be on my shelf.  I know I need to add the s at the end.

For my mini stencils right now I store them in my 31 bags tote - which I love... especially when I go to crops - but I am ordering the right dividers for the albums and will get it all into 1 place and then use the tote for something else.

Below are my 2 dogs - Clea (on the left) and Ella on the Right) now that I have a nice long desk they always want to get up on it and see what I'm doing it... So Now they can.  Say hi ladies..

 Ella - likes it when she's alone... LOL

Last day of Winter Art Class was a field trip to Morristown Museum Thursday Night

An amazing show - he is a oil painter on Linen Canvas - just breath taking.
Todd L. W. Doney

The below was my favorite.   Going to focus on the detail in these photos for my Spring Series class

Plesae check out the art work he's there for 2 month - I highly recomment.

Washi Tape Storage - Check it out...

So here's a box of my favorite wash tape supplies.... Not all of them - because I have alot that are "holiday themed"

I have been keeping them in a target box - but again always having to dig then out...  Because I always wanted one that was on the bottom.

So I found this cute dress form at Michaels - using my 40% coupon I got it for $7.00..  Then I got pins

And then I put on my best tapes that I use all the time.  This is a small dress form - so of course they don't all fit - but I just love it...   I'll be looking for a bigger one.

I hope you all like...  (sorry for all the stuff in the background)  Working on better photos.

Organizing Mixed Media Supplies.... What to do.... well how about this???

So I have all these Golden and other type of Mixed Media Supplies.

I had them in a box - but it was so hard to get what I wanted from the box without always having to go to the bottom.

I was walking around target last night - and saw this spice rack organizer - and it was on clearance for $8.72....  So I got it...

Original I was thinking all my powers or inks - but this one was much better for the Mixed Media Supplies.

I was able to put all of my supplies and more on it... I love it so much I'm going back today to get more.

Enjoy... please comment and follow my blog.

Weekend Thrift Store & Antique Store Shopping with my Daughter

So I tried Thrift Store & Antique Store Shopping this past weekend with my daughter - and we both made out good.

We went to the Dover Antique Mall in Dover, NJ

I was looking for 1 storage type furniture didn't find anything good - but got some good ideas...
And 2nd was looking for things for my art journals.
I found a 1902 Edition of the Sears Roebuck Catalogue...  The paper is so great - it's book page but stronger and so much typeface and photos on it.. can't wait to start using it.

I also found some really old black & white photos that were hard cardstock.
Letters from WW2
And 4 First Class Stateroom from 1921.

Some old sticker letters (which I used some and they work)..

My daughter got a big bag of jewelry from the 1920 time...

We are 100% going to continue our road trips and start hitting other's in the area..

Let me know what good find you have found at your local stores.
