DIY Color Mist

I've been playing around in the craft studio and created some color mist to use on backgrounds and tags and this is what I have come up with and wanted to share.  Since I make soap from time to time I had mica powder on hand.  When I got started in crafting I bought a few pre-made bottles of color sprays to use and that is when I thought to myself, " I can make this stuff"; cause we all know to well that some of this stuff can get quite pricey.  So that is just what I did.  I tried a couple of different variations and the one I'm sharing is just plain rubbing alcohol and powdered mica.  The ratio of mixture is solely up to you.  A little mica color goes along way.  I first tried distilled water (another soaping staple), but that just beaded up on the paper to much.  This has a much nicer look to it. 

Here is just one link to a mica supplier, but there are many out there.

They come in all kinds of wonderful colors and even in shimmering tones.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you ENJOY!!

Happy Mother's Day!

Card for Megan
Completed Scrapbook for Mom titled "Our Family"
This card is for my Daughter Megan.  She is such a beautiful young lady and a wonderful Mom to my two Grand Girls, as I like to call them.  I wanted to let her know that, so I created this card for her.  I used the Tim Holtz die "Sewing Room" and Authentique's "Delightful" Paper Line.  Gee, I seem to use a lot of their paper.  LOL  Anyhoo, this is the card I create just for her, I wanted to get it posted cause I'm leaving on a Jet Plane.  Tee Hee  Going to see my mom in Indiana this weekend.  It's My Mom's Birthday and Mother's Day all rolled into one, so I made Mom a Scrapbook complete with pictures.  It was just a mod podge of this and that, but I thought I'd at least show the cover.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful "MOMS"!!

Remember That Glorious Spring Photo!?

This is that beautiful peach tree now.   I had posted a picture back some time ago of it in full bloom.  Now I have luscious white peaches and boy is it loaded.  I'm thinking maybe some peach jam or even a peach cobbler when they are ripe.  Can't Wait!!

Card for Baby Elyn

For this card I used Graphic 45 Little Darlings Collection.  It's pastel colors are great for baby girl or baby boy.  For the flower I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die and added a brad to the center.  Then added a couple of cute butterflies and a rhinestone spray to dress it up a bit.  I kept it simple and sweet.  Thanks for stopping by, come again soon.

Wow, I haven't posted in awhile.  Shame on me.  What have I been up to you ask?  Well, we put in our garden and planted flowers and a tree or two.  I actually haven't crafted much.  I did make some get well cards the other day.  I got some great ideas off Pinterest and did a variation of it.  I really loved how they turned out.  My plans for the upcoming weekend include a mini album for my mom for Mother's Days and more Cards for upcoming Birthdays and Mother's Day too.  I'll be sure to post a sneak peek.  Thanks all for stopping by.  Oh, and you just gotta check out Pinterest, it's a Blast!!
