About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Finishing "Unfinished" Projects

Products used:  pre-primed 8x10 canvas, homemade modeling paste, Want2Scrap bling, 
Copic markers, Ranger Fine Glitter in Diamond

Hi everyone:
I don't know about you, but I really do have craftingADHD.
I tend to jump from one project to another.  That's what happens when you have ideas just bouncing around in your head! LOL.  I could be working on a project, something will pop into my head - distracting me, I'll drop that because I start thinking about something else, and voila! on to the next project...sigh...and I'm not sure if that's a bad thing or a good thing....

But anyway, I started working on this canvas and got "distracted"...
I put on a coat of acrylic paint, got her paper pieced together, added her wings and then stopped....she sat, neglected, for a little over two months.

I heard her calling my name sometimes.  And I would pick her up and stare at her and even occasionally ask her what she wanted from me (although she wouldn't answer me), but eventually I'd put her right back in a corner somewhere.  

Well, she called my name around 4:00 am Saturday....must be the "Angel" connection...LOL.  She said that she didn't want much.  Just a little bit of attention.  She whined a little bit "come on, come on, finish meeeeee."  

So here she is!  Didn't take a lot to get it to where I wanted it either. And I really like how it - oops, sorry Angelgurl - I really like how SHE turned out.

By the way, when I finally climbed back into bed, I heard a small whisper of thanks....made me smile before I fell back to sleep

What do you think?
