Works in progress

I have so many things in the works, sometimes they get relegated to a “later”box or a”see-you-later” trash bin.  Somethings I managed to start, but not quite sure where to go with. These Tim Holtz boxes were not the best purchase for me because I like my things in containers or canning jars on the shelves.

I tried to put a little decoration on them, here is the second.The paper is Basic Grey  Urban Couture and  Motifica,the trim is SweetPea Jack collection: Carmella Sky.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The  gear image (and the others you cannot see) are are by Debrina Pratt who has them for sale on Etsy. If nothing else since beginning my training in mixed media, it was to learn and document who my products are by/from. Since they are only for personal usage, I just tossed the packaging..then came the questions: “who’s stamp/paper/image/sprays/ brushes are those”?Sorry about the photo staging. I have only one window and the lighting is not so great because of the weather. This is a jar and stopper that I bought from the flea market ions ago. Painted it with regular white glue then applied crackle glaze that I bought from Panduro Hobby Love the crackle effect and now to find a suitable color. I saw the idea at Kristen’s blog. Her link is in the sidebar.

There was a challenge to modify a can of your choice,but I was not able to water proof the fabric which meant mold after it got wet, so I removed the hanging chains, replaced the bottom in the #10 can and it became a brush holder.  Another recycle project in use.

Last, but not least. …need suggestions on sorting paper. This is how I store the 12×12 and the bottom left has a box with 6×6 and 8×8 pads.  Any tips would be appreciated!  Have a great and creative week. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Any ideas for sorting paper? Started with colors and types, but too confusing.

  2. I love how you decorated the trinket box & I’m also looking for the best way to store my papers, at the moment they’re in assorted plastic, Really Useful boxes.

  3. I store mine just like you have in shelves, but only by colour, it seems to work best for me. Then I flick through to find the right one, and I always come across a paper I had forgotten about, and it’s usually perfect for the job. Michelle x
