Office Make-Over

New adventures in store for me as I've accepted a new job!

Making my work space reflective of my style and personality was a lot of fun :)

Following the LEAN Methodology, I was able to do a complete office make over for under $200.



It all started with this Vintage desk (as seen in a previous post)











 As always, thank you for dropping by!

Can't wait to get into my fall grove and get crafting again on a more regular base.

Happy Accident!

This little note card 31/2"x 31/2" was actually a happy accident.




I started by using the Nuance products in a very concentrated form and painted in the flower using a paint brush. I didn't like the finish look so in a rather frustrating moment, I sprayed the entire surface with water. What happened next was wonderful!

The colors lifted from the surface and using a paper towel I dabbed off the excess. What remained was pleasing to my eye!

Introducing.....

I absolutely LOVE everything about this product from how it's packaged to all it's fabulous uses <3

Using the bare minimum products of water colouring paper and water you can create backgrounds:



Add a stencil and black jell pen you can end up with this!



I did add a little pearl perfect pearls to the water to add a little shimmer.  I also embossed the final card for extra texture and added liquid pearls to the dots on the stencil.

Any crafter can create with this product, from those who are only starting and who have only a few supplies to those who have everything. Give it a try!
