I am super duper excited to see my new art studio going up from scratch, this is a whole new experience and I have never been through this process before. I am documenting it every step of the way so I can share it with you. I can't wait to move in! I am really looking forward to having my own creative space where I can keep everything organized. Here are some pics so you can see the progress so far. The framing kit just arrived this morning so before you know it the frame will be up. Woo hoo!!!

I am so super excited to share the progress of my new art studio. For years I have wanted to have my studio outside of my house, I live on 5 acres so there is plenty of room. A few years back I actually had started to build one that fell through because the people did bad work and I did not go through with building it but I did not let that stop me and here I am getting the process done right this time. My studio will be 16 feet wide and 40 feet long. Right now I am working in a 10 X 12 room so this will be amazing! So I plan to share the progress of my studio with all my friends through this blog. I will be sharing this experience from start to finish with you so check back to see the progress. Here are some pics from day 1 & 2 of the process.

As always times gets away from me and I realized I had not posted in awhile so I thought I would share our latest video where we show how to alter plain white paper flowers into beautiful blossoms. You will not believe how easy it is to do. Lets get creating!

I found this vintage tin at the flea market yesterday, it's full of amazing crystals which is incredible, especially since it was only $5.00. This was a super steal and I was thrilled to come across it. I love going to flea markets, garage sales and thrift stores!

Today on Wonderous Wednesday Kira and I discuss and show different ways you can use alcohol inks. Be careful because they are messy and stain, so make sure to wear gloves when using them. There are so many ways to use alcohol inks, you can use them on glass, mixed in with translucent polymer clay, glossy paper, transparencies, to color paper flowers and so much more! Check out the video for lots of inspiration.

I wanted to try my hand at a few new techniques, one was using old magazines and a natural product called Citra Solv something in it breaks down the old ink and creates some unique looks. I love the look but it's very orangy smelling at first. Lol anyway I found this unique vintage postcard that was the perfect size then added a bunch of texture and layers and voila. Vintage meets modern. What do you think. If you like it please share with your friends.
