Painted Canvas Porch Pillow...

I wanted to share the pillow I painted the other day for my
side porch. I bought the canvas pillow cover a few years back 
not knowing what I would do with it but it was super cheap so I 
bought it!  All I wanted on it was my house number. I think it's
really COOL!

Bunny Cards...

I recently purchased a few printable papers from Iralamija's Etsy shop.
I printed them out and made these cards using her beautiful floral tags 
and printable floral papers. The pink stripe paper is from Hobby Lobby.
I also used my hand dyed buttons and some of the resin bunnies I made 
and painted. I found the yellow doilies at a local flea market, I was so

Amazing Mold Putty...

Last week I came across a pin on Pinterest about making your own molds with Amazing Mold Putty. I thought it was a neat idea so I set out to try it. First I bought my supplies at Hobby Lobby, including Amazing Casting Resin. I followed the directions on the packaging, made a few molds and poured in my resin.  After the resin hardened I took my pieces out of the molds. I painted some and dyed some with Rit liquid dye. After my painted pieces dried I sprayed them with either gloss or matte sealer to protect the painted finish. The process, in my opinion, is very simple and really a lot of fun! My favorite pieces are the bunnies, ice cream cones and the roses.
