Fireworks! spray provides an easy way to turn simple white papers into vibrant, colorful backgrounds for card projects. When working on one-layer projects, the stamped image needs to be protected with a mask to avoid the wet ink getting on the main image. For this technique, no special supplies are needed as the masks are created using cheap masking tape and baking paper or wax paper. This technique can be used for various projects; ATC’s, standard sized cards, scrapbook layouts, and art journal pages.

For the past four years I’ve been picking a single word that is my guide for the next 12 months. I like to put this word some place I’m going to see it a lot, so my planner is the perfect place to showcase it. The paper planner community has been growing by leaps and bounds, lately, and custom dashboards are a great way to personalize a planner. This dashboard is designed for an A5/half-letter, ring-bound planner, but can easily be made into whatever size or binding style you need.
When it comes to art- what brings you motivation for 2016? For me it is creating more art in the new year. This journal page has several three dimensional elements created out of paper and ink.
Everybody loves Christmas cookies! With Christmas right around the corner, I love to have several decorated kraft bags at hand to give my homemade cookies to family, friends or teachers. A pretty packaging makes the cookies taste even more delicious, doesn’t it?
