Suzi Blu Craft Bag

Remember that piece of canvas that I had stamped with a Suzi Blu stamp and painted?  This is what it was for!   It is a craft tote embellished and altered Suzi Blu style.  You want to know how to make one too?  Go here and see the video!  It is simple and fun to make and I love how it turned out!  I may even use it just as an everyday bag!

Friends Forever

This is the first tiny painting I did for the new Suzi Blu on-line class called La La La.  It is on a little 4" x 4" canvas and was so much fun to make!  It is supposed to look like it is old and perhaps from a vintage children's storybook.  It was the first time I have used beeswax and now I want to beeswax everything!!  I have a few more projects still to make in this class and I am so looking forward to doing more!

WOYWW July13/11

It is Wednesday and that means it is time for What's On Your Wordesk Wednesday!  You too can play along over on the lovely Julia's blog The Stamping Ground!

Here on my desk are some Suzi Blu images stamped onto some scraps of canvas that I have  gessoed (is that a word?).  They are for a little project I am working on that I will post when I have finished!

Happy WOYWW to all!

Mini Smash Book

 I made a mini Smash Book!  Or mini Junk Journal.  It is 5" x 5" so it would easily fit in a purse if desired.
I had been hearing about Smash Books on various blogs and had to see what they were.  They are also known as Junk Journals and are journals to put whatever you want into them.  You can paste in pretty things you like or use it to document a trip.... anything you want really, just paste it in and/or write it in.  I used a lot of pattern papers in mine and also a few pages that are white.  I added a few envelopes here and there to tuck things into as well.  Now that I have made a little one for practice, I will make a larger one too when I have time.  It was easy to make but I fussed with the cover for ages and that it was took the most amount of time.  Below are a few pictures of the inside...
