I know that most of you are interested in crafting and sewing but I thought I would see if there was interest in some painting tutorials. I like to mix materials and processes to come up with a unique look. Below is an example of a distressing process I use when painting. It involves painting on canvas using acrylic paint, newspaper, crackle finish and paint pens.
Here is the new rock Sienna picked out for our travel rock collection! Isn’t it a beauty? It is a good thing we label them all….all our Lake Tahoe rocks look the same!
I avoid zippers and button holes like the plague. But I saw this tutorial over at Skip to My Lou and thought she made it look easy! I used some leftover scraps from Sienna’s Sweet Dress and some hot pink Hawaiin fabric for the inside. Sienna thinks it is her new “purse” and I gave her some coupons and VIP shopping cards to keep in it.

Sometimes I’ll use gesso (gesso is pictured further along in the post) to paint over some letters to decorate the cover as well…..
…and cover the pages to make them opaque white. This prepares the surfaces for paint or other mediums.
