Thomas the Train

Hey Bloggers! Today I wanted to share this project I made for my sons bedroom. Other then posting my Smash pages, I have totally lost my mojo! I can't find it. So today I decided to update my sons bedroom.  Let me show you the before canvas. I bought the canvas at Michael's. (Ironic my son is named Michael Thomas!)  The airplanes were hand drawn which matched his crib sheets. (he will be three in November!) 

I do not paint much but had a hard time painting over these cute little airplanes. I just did not want to see them at a thrift store for 25 cents.I used Gesso to prime them and then used acrylic paint.

Tip: Use a few layers of gesso! I can still see some of the clowns in the end result.

I hand drew the train. 

Its still not dry but I wanted to share it anyways. The end result was very "cartoon" looking but thats what I wanted. His bed sheets are Thomas the train and I was not going for a mixed media painting. Im not Picasso ya know! Anyways, I still need to make the Thomas canvas (This is James, his favorite). I will show you the end result of both paintings. One more tip, make sure you let everything dry before you out line the drawing. I did not wait and my lines were not as straight as I wanted them.

Thanks for stopping by!

Favor Bags

Hello my friends! Its has been a while since I posted but I think life just caught up..I just wanted to share this quick project I made for my Bff's wedding. Her them was a vintage/tea party. I was so bummed that I was not able to take a picture of the table settings but I manage to get a photo of the favor. We made a total of 225 of these!! It was crazy! These were simple and cute and I think it went well with the theme.  We got the paper bags on and the dollies from Michaels.  We used an Ek success Punch for the holes and a simple pink ribbon. We then used theMCT Tiny Tag Greetings stamp set.

This is what was in the bag. A tea bag and a honey stick! Yummy!

Here is a picture of us at her bridal shower. Im so happy for her!! 

Thanks for stopping by! Big hugs!
