Note To Self: Make Time for Art


Definitely something I want to follow through with this year! It is the WHY of all I do and I need to make time for it 🙂


I used some of Mary Beth Shaw’s Stencil Girl Designs– so love them. They are really cool Stencils. I also used Maya Road Maya Mists, Ranger Dylusions, Liquitex Professional Spraypaints, Ranger’s Distress Inks,  Liquitex Acrylic Inks, Letter Stencil, old book paper, Posca Markers, Ranger Glossy Accents


Can you tell I had a fun time in my student? LOL

Maya Road Guest Designer – Road Trip Minialbum

Last but not least I show you the little minialbum I created for my guest design spot at Maya Road.

The photos were all taken at our recent road trip in Januar in California- I loved working on this project, as it brought back so many fun memories!

This Mini album uses a mix of the  Maya Road Canvas Flag Banner and the Maya Road Chipboard Flag Banner Album as its base.

A variety of Maya Mist adorn the pages of this mini album.

A great feature of the Maya Road Canvas albums is that the canvas doesn’t bleed.

You can spray lots of mist on one side and the other side will remain blank until you are ready to alter it.

Using a stencil and Maya Mists I created both negative and positive images on my pages.

I love the way the chipboard takes the Maya Mist

I used a black marker to trace the stencil by Crafter’s Workshop an give it  more definition. Fun

What was the last Mini Album about you created?

Maya Road Guest Designer Art Bag

So stoked that I was asked to be a guest designer for Maya Road.

I had heaps of fun creating this art bag using the Maya Road Alterable Canvas Messenger Bag .

I added a page from the  Maya Road Canvas Flag Banner to create the pocket.  I used lots of Maya Road Mists to get the bold colorful front of the tote.

The Deborah Chipboard was my stencil for the word “Art bag.”

Love the colors and I love that the Maya Mists can be heat set – so they are awesome to use on  fabric!

I will show more of my projects for Maya Road in the next days 🙂
