Love adding pattern to tags with stencils!

Sometimes I just play around without a plan.  I know, you’re shocked.  That’s how all 3 of these tags came about – just random play with Pebbles Layer Me, Iron Grate Layer Me, and Connected Eyes Layer Me stencils. The muse gave me the imperfect vibe today so I went loose with the paints.  That means getting paint under the [...]

There was something fishy about the story that my muse popped into my head as I was playing.  So fishy in fact, that I began to think about the plausibility of the story.  My logical left brain jumped in while I was playing.  That did not go so well until my inner teenager with ample [...]

The heavy rain that has been turning roads into swimming pools became my inspiration when I found a poem called Mud Puddles in my Quick Quotes stash.  I decided to only use part of the poem to fit my mood today.  I used some remnants from my latest Quick Quotes stitched striped paper & Tim [...]
