April’s Projects

Hey Sweeties,

This month, I feel like I was at my best. Not cramming everything at the end of the month. Enjoying and sharing the projects in a peaceful manner. However you say it, I’m happy with it.

Here, I’ll be talking about my monthly projects all in one post. The WBCM PICS page One-Word Prompt, Livie’s Lovelies Index Card Art and Artsy Solutions’ Monthly Blog Challenge.

One-Word Prompt

I really love puzzles. As a kid, I would spend hours putting them together. Not your everyday 300-piece puzzles, but 2,000+ pieces.

Like the March project for Artsy Solutions, I made another shadow box.

March Blog Challenge w/Artsy Solutions

Hey Sweeties,

This month for Mrs. Sonya’s challenge, I decided to make a shadow box clock.

This is a scrap project. Made from paper, I molded it into a pan and an oatmeal container. The flowers are made from Tim Holtz’s Tattered Florals dies (the large and the minis). I decoupaged with napkins she sent me in happy mail and added some gems off camera.

This may be a future tutorial on my Patreon we’ll see.

March Index Card Art w/Livie’s Lovelies

Hey Sweeties,

This month, I took the index card art to a different level. I made flat cards for the first two months, and this time around, I didn’t want to do so.

I tried to stick with a bit of a grungy spring theme. Flowers, pinks, blues, yellows, and a few other colors.

At first, I didn’t like how it turned out. I got up, cleaned up, and walked away. I came back to add my finishing touches. Some gold…. I feel all my mixed media projects need gold or something related to it….well not my art journal pages.

I also recorded this in a different way. I decided to get a canvas blanket, roll it out, put my yoga mat under it, and created. This video is gonna be a bit of an odd one. I got up so many times. It’s easier to be at my desk creating versus being 3 feet away and unprepared. 🤣

Make sure yall check out what Mrs. Pham has going on in her shop and on her YouTube channel this month.

Thank You Card

Hey Sweeties,

I really don’t have much to say about this one because it’s a greeting card. 🤣 Everyone knows how I am about cards. I have to be in one of those moods to pop out a card… I guess this was that moment.

I painted, stamped, stenciled, drew, and used watercolor colored pencils. I made the card from scraps and “started ephemera.” I was in the moment when I made this card and I really like how it turned out.

Gelliuary and B&D Crafts & More Pocket Letter Swap

Hey Sweeties,

Here’s another Gelliuary project that doubles as a swap project. Without the Gelli plate, would I have survived? Not sure, but I did, LOL.

Brian of B&D Crafts & More on YouTube and Facebook started a swap for January. Be sure to check him out!

I decided to use butterflies. One because I love them, two because they were blue. When I imagined this, I just thought, icy blue butterflies and snowflakes. I added some teals and greens as well.

Let’s Make a Pocket Letter videos No. 1 and No. 2.

Multimedia Crafts Digital January Prompt

Hey Sweeties,

If you haven’t checked out the blog share post on yesterday, be sure to do so and craft along. The New Year Challenge is being hosted by Sonya Stover.

I know I’m working on Gelliuary as well, but I find prompts to be fun and challenging. One prompt a month is going to hurt. Lol.
