I used a rolling pin and bubble wrap to create the stamps.  The acrylic paint brand I used is Reeves.  They were a little on the darker side so I mixed a little bit of white in.  The journaling flower is from an ephemera set from awhile ago so I don’t know the brand.  The die cuts are from Wilna Furstenberg, the wood veneers and fawn badge are from Studio Calico.

Crafty Finds

I’ve always wanted to draw and paint on the pages of an old or unused book so I went to the thrift store yesterday and found one.  I also found a few books that I don’t plan to draw or paint in.  Stories For The Heart will be the unfortunate…or fortunate book, depending on how the book feels about being sketched and painted all over with my art.  If I were a book, I’d be very happy.  Got all four books for $3.75!

I was in need of a new guillotine cutter.  The one I’ve had for 10 years was wearing down.  Thought about ordering the same brand from eBay but saw a 9″ Fiskars from Micheal’s so decided to try it out.  It seems to work great.  It was also on sale for $14.00.  Original price was $19.99.  The other items were things I heard on Facebook and Youtube that I wanted to try out.

Spray bottles from Walgreen’s for $1.19 each.  I’ll be using these to do some water color spray painting.
