DIY Rustic Fountain


Oh my it's been awhile since I have been here.  Life happens and I have been living it.  So nice to break out my inky things and this AMAZING DecoArt stencil.  I really love stencils and the bigger the better.  After years of wanting to update my deck for that "outdoor living" vibe this weekend we finally started to pull our vision together.

This is my easy DIY Rustic Fountain...



I gathered DecoArt Paint, stencil and Dynasty Stencil brush.  Just tape and load ink!


I love this Americana Decor Stencil, Cafe Paris Stencil... no like I really love it!  


I encourage you to peek...  this literally took 2 min.


I attached a small bucket to my old pump.


Adding the letters to this galvanized tub is quick and easy.  It completely changes the look.  This DIY Rustic Fountain cost me $70 with the pump and tubing consuming $50 of the cost.

BONUS...


Since that was so quick and easy I decided to add a little detail to my new lanterns.  These little lanterns I picked up on clearance for $7!  





So quick...


I filled these up with fairy lights.  I will be adding some velcro to the battery pack to attach it to the top of the lantern on the inside.  This will hide it.


As we approach the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere we only have a few hours of darkness.  So I won't see them in action for a couple of months.

Thanks for popping in.  It's been awhile I know.  Family first always.  Watch for some new stuff as I get to spend some more time in my craftroom.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…

Mixed Media Canvas Facebook Live

I was excited to be on Creative Scrapbooker Magazine's Facebook Page doing my first Facebook Live!  I created this canvas page with Prima paints and Stampers Anonymous stamps and stencils.  Oh and a fun napkin technique ;)  


Valentines is just around the corner.

Make sure to check out the video HERE on how I created this mixed media piece.  
Thanks for popping by... Looking forward to creating again with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.
