making things is always....

so much fun when you get time! This weekend I am going to make some more things, but here's what I finished off today...just relaxin' and listening to some tunes!
A lil canvas! this is only like 4"x6" its the size of a photograph! I used my spesh technique of stringing buttons and securing the buttons down! I love this idea:-) Also so C O O L on cards and the like!

{materials: canvas, teal paint, buttons, love Elsie ribbon, HG heart pin, Doodlebug rub-ons, puff paint, felt + some index prints}.

Annnnd this card-turned-art print/hanging! I began making it as part of this card swap that I'm in, and it began to look all wrong to me the more I kept adding on to it! Have you ever had one of those times when this happens? Surely, I'm not the only one LOL!! Anyways, I think it turned out okay...I really do love this paper range from American Crafts...actually I love everything AC..and their cardstock range! Y

The colours are delish and bright. A nice change.

{materials: American Craft accent thickers, alpha thickers, cardstock, patterned paper. Also, used embroidery floss + old book page}.
Yes, I love the distressed look...still!
happy weekend. Make some thing.
