Amazing Mold Putty...

Last week I came across a pin on Pinterest about making your own molds with Amazing Mold Putty. I thought it was a neat idea so I set out to try it. First I bought my supplies at Hobby Lobby, including Amazing Casting Resin. I followed the directions on the packaging, made a few molds and poured in my resin.  After the resin hardened I took my pieces out of the molds. I painted some and dyed some with Rit liquid dye. After my painted pieces dried I sprayed them with either gloss or matte sealer to protect the painted finish. The process, in my opinion, is very simple and really a lot of fun! My favorite pieces are the bunnies, ice cream cones and the roses.

Rhiannon's Country Wedding...

My daughter, Rhiannon's wedding. She wanted a country wedding 
outside with the reception inside a barn. She made alot of the 
decorations or had them made by her friends and myself.  I made 
the background display behind the wedding cake. Her friend,
 Tawny, made the Mr and Mrs sign and she and Rhiannon sewed 
all the grooms men's bow ties.

Getting ready for the big moment with her bridesmaids and 
maid of honor.
Rhiannon's daughter also getting ready for the big moment. She's
the flower girl and looks like a princess with her gorgeous hairstyle 
and her princess crown.
Mingling with guest before the wedding. That's her dad all 
handsome In his Father of the Bride white shirt, yellow bow tie 
and gorgeous rose boutonnière that she also made from a wine 
bottle cork.
I hand lettered the Our Wedding sign using a white Prang colored 
pencil. It looked just like chalk. It was then sealed with a matte 
sealer for protection. I also made the Cards Banner. There's two 
kegs of beer hidden under all that ice in the water trough. We 
stuck a couple of big sticks inside to hold the beer signs.
Above top right photo is the Candy Bar. Bottom photo is the
Inside of the barn. She and I cut different colored fabrics into 
banners then she attached them to rope to hang from the ceiling.
Rhiannon wrapped all the wine bottles with twine to be used as 
flower vases in the table center pieces. She also used wine bottle 
corks stuck into glass candle stick holders as photo holders. 
Mason jars tied with raffia held floating candles. She placed all 
these on top of slices of wood and accented it with green moss. 
So country cute!

Party Time Giraffe...

Yesterday I got out my book, Altered Art Circus by Lisa Kettell, and got inspired to dress up my toy giraffe. I finished her up today and I think she turned out FAB. 

She's dressed in an orange and pink crepe paper tutu trimmed in
gold fringe, a white pearl necklace and a festive party hat! She's also wearing 
lipstick, blush and eyeliner :)

She's even got a tiny orange bow around her tail and gold fringe 
around her legs.

Birthday Gift Tag...

This cute tag is for my granddaughter, Delilah, she turns three in a few days. I used a doll head I purchased from Lisa Kettells ArtFire store here too. It came prepainted so all I had to do was make the tag and embellish it. Cuteness! :)) Happy Birthday Delilah!
