Easy Art

 We had a canvas sitting in the back of the craft closet that was just sitting, waiting, begging to be turned into art :). It really was in just a matter of minutes, that it was transformed, first a coat of black craft paint, while that was drying, we cut out shapes from scrapbook paper.
When the paint was dry, we added Mod Podge in small areas, then applied our paper in a flowerish design. Once everything was in place, another coat of Mod Podge over the entire surface. Now Jordan has a cool & unique piece of art for her room.

Jewelry Organizer

 Anyone who has teenage girls knows the impossible amount of jewelry that can be found all over their rooms, bathrooms, closets, etc. ;) There is only so much a jewelry box can hold, and some of the pieces are much too large for them anyway. Solution...a funky wall jewelry holder! Of course I started out with some scrap wood I had at home. Then purchased some cute metal ware from Hobb Lobb :)
 Oh, and it was of course half off. Painted my wood with a base coat of black. After it was dry, I used a cool turquoise (this is an accent color for her room). Worked a little distressing into it, and added the hardware. Now all of those long, big, pieces have a place in the world!

More fun and easy!

 Hi Ya`ll! I am always looking for things that can be done either in an afternoon (while everyone is at school) or in a day or two...I am a person who like instant gratification :). Well, with so many options at my fave spot ( Hobby Lobby) I could stay busy day after day.
 Again using e6000, different wood pieces, and a little paint. I chose a grouping of three different crosses, used the wooden dowels, and wood bases to create some pretty cool fillers for the entertainment center cabinets.
Gluing all my pieces together first, and allowing to dry as recommended. Applying my base coat of black, after that was dry, I just dry brushed the antique white. After it is all dry, rough it up a bit with some sanding.
Now, I have to get back to it, my mom wants me to make a few for her. Happy crafting!
