What inspires me?
This is a question that was asked on the Creative Jumpstart 2014

I think I am inspired by COLOR.  Doesn't matter what form it comes in whether it is leftover paint on a pallette,or looking at papers, or things in nature.

Here is my completed project.  I used some Antique Gold rub n buff, and popped my photos up.

In progress

Nathalie wants to see a project in progress, so here goes.  This is for Creative Jumpstart 2014
Household item is cardboard from Pecan Swirls, honey buns, tea bag boxes...  Totally raided the recycle bag.  Then I diecut the triangles with my Cuttlebug, and then used various embossing folders.  Then I started misting.  I wasn't exactly thinking it would be so pastel, and my metallic rubons didn't help...  So..  yes it is is still in progress.  A stop at the hardware store today, so we will see if it "finished it off"!  lol  And yes the Libra - symetrical side came out again!  lol  Had one idea, and when I started gluing - it totally changed...

Don't worry be happy

For this project, I used the following household products:  spackling, drywall tape, and my Scotch labelmaker I have had for 30 years!  I used a ton of mask/stencils including the arrows that I made myself.  Then I went to town with my Luminarte Twinklin H20s that I have had for many years. I love the shimmer that they give.  I painted layers and layers until I got it like I wanted.  This is an entry for CJS14   I will be playing with this concept again!

House & Burlap

This is a project that I tryed from Dina Wakely's Creative Jumpstart 2014 using joint compound or spackling.  I have been wanting to use this House stencil by Stencil Girl since I won it in one of their bloghops.  So I thought I would try the stencil on top of a piece of burlap.  I was pleasantly surprised that the spackling thru the stencil was sturdy the day after.  So I got out my paints, and I am really tickled how it turned out.  Now I am waiting for another piece to dry to try her example.

Fly Away

Here is another small item I made using the masking tape technique by Marjie Kemper with Creative Jump Start 2014.
This time I covered it with torn pieces of masking tape, and then used gesso on top before I inked.  It made the background even more subdued.  I then stamped on top.  Fun project.
