Petaloo Pets Week

Petaloo Pets Week
Petaloo loves Pets!  We’re celebrating by giving away a 10 pc Petaloo Prize package, enter here!

 Hi today, Heather here. I hope you all are enjoying some Petaloo Pets.  We want to share the love with not only those four legged friends, but two legged, winged, finned and/or feathered. So today I am sharing an elegant three tiered cake.  My project is showcasing the Finch from Relics & Artifacts, I had these three round gift boxes that came one inside each other. I had thought of stacking them and putting some precious gifts in the inside.

Dove cake 4

 I started out by decorating the bases with some paper, trimming it with some Dresden trim and adding some pretty Fancy Trims in Aqua and Cream. After all was applied with the paper decorating, I decided to glue them all together.

 Afterthought I could have used a small thin velco so they were removable, but you can still take off the tops to put some goodies on the inside.

 I actually dug out those old Fun Flocks that were such a craze a few years back and decided to add some pretty fluffiness to the finch. I hand painted the eyes and the beak

 And now it was time to add the gorgeous flowers. I used some new Ruffled Peony from the 2017 Spring release, along with a ton of other beautiful teals and creams.

So I am going to package up the tiers with lots of goodies for the bride to be and send a little love with it. I hope she enjoy’s it. Thank you for taking a peak today and enjoy our petaloo pets inspiration.

Just to Create

Just to create

Sometimes you just need to create for you, and to step away from those deadlines and DT commitments and just play, to go grab something you’ve been wanting to get your hands on but other proirites are pushing you in the different directions.


And sometimes you need to just create for you to rejuvenate yourself and remind yourself why you create art in the first place.


To remind youself that this is something you love and are compationate about.

So take the time Create for You, Take a little time for yourself and make beautiful art and creations. Well worth it everytime.

Brick Bottle

Brick Bottle

I love seeing all of the inspiration around me. And my good friend Tracy Weinzapfel recently did a mixed media brick wall canvas. I tried the technique and lets just say, it’s effect was not quiet the same. But I worked with it and made it my own.


My actually canvas is a Sake bottle from our Chrimstmas themed dinner. I painted a layer or two of gesso just to colver up the matte gray glass. After that i used Creative Embellsishemtns Brick Stencil and some sand paste to build up the bricks. I acutally used the stencil multiple times for the different layers and colours.

Tracy’s Video for DecoArt can be found in the link.

DecoArt Media Mixed Media Brick Wall Background


I am loving the rust technique and there are so many diffenet techniques avaialble. I decieded to rust the wings  from Creative Embellsishemtn and the flaming heart from Relics & Artifacts®


I used a variety of reds, golds and and even continued the brick pattern on the underlying paint brush and the window with in the relic. to keep with the paint brush theme. I even added a minuture brush in the window.


I used multiple trinkets, costume jewlery and findings from around the house to build up the background. I also snuck in some CE Keys and did a ton of dry brushing. Thank you for stoppping by today and I hope you enjoyed this altered art.

Heart Frame

Valentines Frame

As Valentines is just around the corner, I am trying to be a bit festive. This holiday always seems to sneak up fast and then it’s gone.



I decided to alter this chicken wire heart frame with the perfect Mon Amour Collection from Graphic 45, and paired it with some fabulous Botanical Blooms from Petaloo.


And yes for the record I did fussy cut some of the flowers and butterflies out, so to add some little extra special touches to the piece.

I used some rock candy crackle to give texture to the chipboard along with some powder in the crackles to help highlight the details.



So I hope all is loved and have that special Valentine’s this year and every year. Thank you for stopping by.

Pretty, Sassy, Breathtaking

Pretty, Sassy, Breathtaking

As February is in full swing, and Valentines are just around the corner, I tend to do more girly projects and layouts. This one is has a little bit of everything. Some class, a bit of sass, pretty with a flair of elegance, beautiful and breathtaking.

CE Sassy and Sweet.jpg

She has a bit of sparkle, and is beautiful inside and out.


She is pretty and sassy and can be pretty sassy too.


She adds such a flourish to all that is around her.


And all of these characteristics TOGETHER are so my daughter. She is her own unique Sweet & Sassy self.


Enjoy all the pretty little things in life, no matter how big or small they are.

At Creativations this past January, while walking around, I came across this interesting display at the Ranger booth. I totally thought of Olivia.



I know deep down in my heart that Olivia’s art will take her places, and she will be my little world traveler.


The display fits perfect with her little artsy personality. I did a bunch of background work and details with crackle paste, and stencils. And added the paint brushes to incorporate the brushes in the photo.


I love the monochromatic theme to this layout, very rustic looking and the brown hues of the Writers Block collection work perfect.


Take a chance, take flight and soar high above the beaten path.


Thank you for stopping by today, Enjoy!
