The new issue of Greencraft magazine is now available…with my article on creating bows from magazine pages! I love how the article looks – the muted colors are so pretty. See for yourself…

There are some other pretty cool things in this issue, but my mom borrowed my copy and of course I can’t remember what other articles I liked.

Check it out if you have the chance. Thanks for stopping by!

I finished my “vintage glam bows”. From pages ripped out of magazines to pretty little bows ready to top a handmade gift. I’m so glad I’m done! Now my least favorite part…typing up instructions, packaging, and mailing. These are going to Stampington, in hopes the editors will like them enough to publish them. I hope they like my bows…I know I do! And they’re just so pretty!

Here are some photos, showing the gesso’d & stamped magazine page strips as well as the finished product…

It’s been months since I’ve created anything. I find when I don’t create for a while, I have trouble getting motivated to do it again. I’ve been working a lot and have been more tired than usual too, which does not help get the creative juices flowing. But I managed to finally 1-find time and 2-rouse myself to do something…anything!

I picked up where I left off with my magazine-page bows. These are so cute, and easy to make. I ripped out some magazine pages and painted each side with a gesso wash. Then I stamped on top with a variety of rubber stamps. The stamps are the clear cling-type; I have a large acrylic block and I stick as many stamps as I can to it. That way the stamping looks random-ish but doesn’t take as long as individually stamping each stamp. I used Staz-On ink, which is a new product for me, and I have to say I am becoming a big fan. Definitely need to get more colors of Staz On!

I’ve made these before, but I did not do anything additional to the magazine pages. This time I decided to step it up, and make some vintage glam bows. With sparkle of course! Courtesy of my beloved Glimmer Mist.

Here is a magazine page that is ready to cut into strips.
