Sand in Your Toes! (Giveaway & New Class Announcement)

Ready for the beach? It's that time - even though I'm having a hard time believing we are halfway through this year - where has it gone?

That being said, I'm happy, always, for the hot days of summer. I never get tired of it. 

I used the neon inks with this awesome shell stencil which is part of the premium kit! The palm three is part of a frame die and I just snipped it out to use it on this bright neon background.

I have a new class coming on Monday too with a fun underwater effect technique! I hope you join me!

See you Monday! Until then, there's more inspiration peeks here!

Also, while you're there, why don't you join me for the Mixed Media Stamp-along?

VIDEO: Highlighting Collage Style Backgrounds + Patreon Update!

I have such a fun two part video for you today! The first section is where I create the colored/stamped portion of the background for both paper piecing and for this background, and the second portion is for creating the ghostly sea images on top of that with this stunning 3D embossing folder, a new-to-me foam tool and some white paint.

I was CRACKING UP putting that little sign in the octopus' tentacle haha. 

The die cuts are all colored with OLO markers - the octopus and jellyfish have three layers so you can do whatever colors you want.

I think this would make a phenomenal art journal page. Hmm. that gives me an idea.

I also have a Patreon update for you! I have added a membership level for my curated and tested recipes. I spend a ton of time selecting, adapting and creating recipes, and I thought I'd create a way for you to be able to collect PDFs of recipes with my notes and substitutions, photos of the food as well as my modifications to make them dairy free if you need that. So that is a new tier on Patreon. The normal crafty Patreon level remains as is - and if you sign up for the recipe level, you'll still get the crafty level benefits. When I've published enough, I'll assemble the individual recipe PDF's into a cookbook with an index that you can print or download. I've already uploaded my insanely delicious vegan lasagna recipe and will be adding more in the next week. I have them all categorized and the format is all the same.

I appreciate any support! 

The video for today's card is below.
