Pictures Missing from Posts?

Hey everyone......I would first like to Thank You for stopping by to visit with me......Just wanted to make you aware of a couple of things....
Due to Dropbox giving me issues on people accessing my free cut files I've had to MOVE MY CUT FILES to a different source....because of this SOME LINKS in posts older then 6/4/2014 may not be valid...You would then need to click on the link to My Free Cut Files and locate from there...
Some of my older posts you will find are missing photos...Some time back I had some issues with Google and they lost HUNDREDS of my photo links......and I honestly have not had the energy to go back through every post and figure out what they are.....SO...Please know you are most welcome to visit My ART Gallery of all ART I've created over the years...My Gallery of ART

It’s FRIDAY and I played with paper!!!

Hey Everyone….How is that for the  start of a weekend!!! I’m so proud of myself!!

I needed to get my ATC’s done on time this month for the swap I host monthly in my ARTHaven Creations & Friendships group…I wanted to try and use some of my supplies that I’ve been hoarding forever and just usually don’t use……so the first thing was to FORCE and I do mean FORCE myself to use some of the most GORGEOUS handmade paper that a very very dear friend of mine…Chrystal Schilling makes….check out here store here….

When I tell you I’m hoarding it…..LOL I’m not kidding..she dated one set she sent me…’s dated 2009!!!! And why do I hoard it….BECAUSE like these I made….I used my most favorite piece that was white with purple all through…with real flower pieces in it….It’s SO PRETTY!!!!! 

I wanted to stamp on it and use some of my Faber Castelle Gelatos….I’ve probably had these for well over a year….and never used them……You know what…they are SUPER SUPER easy and FUN to use!!!!  I used some stamps….just took the gelatos and colored directly onto the stamps…..then right before stamping I spritz with water and then stamp….super super fun and EASY!!!! 

The handmade paper by Chrystal Schilling took the stamping SO WELL with the Distress Ink in the Black Soot and also the Faber Castelle Gelatos….and I went around the edges of the paper with some Crushed Olive Distress Ink and my ink distresser…….used a bit of ribbon….one of my PDC Roses and a couple of purchased roses I’ve had in my stash for eons….wanna see how the ATC’s turned out????
