Reversible PaperWhimsy Houses Project Part 1 by Sarah D...
No one would guess that these houses were supposed to be Christmas-themed. The inspiration just wouldn’t come when asked to use greens and reds, snowflakes and pine trees. However, my creative mantra has always been “Do something and see what happens,” so I began making a distressed and rustic theme that were perfect for Valentine’s Day. No longer staring at a blank set of houses, I was so over..

Out of Limitations Comes Creativity Mixed-Media Project
I’d wanted to use Prima Marketing’s Resist Canvas in project for some time now, but was never quite sure what to make with it. I suddenly got the urge — some might call it whisper from my muse — to use the canvas together with Faber-Castells Mix & Match Gelatos. Once the gelatos hit the canvas, it didn’t take long for me to get inspired. They provided a fun, watercolor effect, blended b..
Leave a Little Sparkle Project by Sarah Donawerth
There’s just something about the color pink. It’s feminine, cheerful, sophisticated. It’s one of my favorite colors to work with because there’s so many different effects that can be conjured with the color pink. For this ornament, I opted for an antique, distressed look. I also incorporated my favorite pattern — book text — to add to the vintage quality of the piece. Leave a Little Sparkle..
