Halloween Trading Cards

Happy Halloween everyone! These are so much fun to create. I joined the group willowing and friends on Facebook and they do ATC swap every month. This is my third swap and I am enjoying it because I get to see the works of other crafters and of course checking the mailbox becomes more fun. 😃 If you want to join in the fun check out willowing and friends.

Wall Decor from Puzzle Pieces

This wall decor is from my kid’s puzzle pieces. The same ones that I used for the magnets. I used scrapbook paper to cover both sides and did some stamping and added distress inks. I also used antique bronze chain to connect each piece and at the end added some paper beads and charms. The height is 16 ½ inches and the squares are 2 x 2 inches. I am so proud of this one because I didn’t thought that I can create something like this from a puzzle piece that I almost throw away. It’s very beautiful in person. I added it to my Etsy shop and available for purchase. The piece is very light and you can hang it anywhere and it’s also a great gift for your friends or love ones especially for Christmas.

Mixed Media Magnets + Glossy Accent

Created these mixed media magnets using my kid’s puzzle pieces from their barbie toy. I was going to throw them away but decided to altered them. I added glossy accent from Ranger on top to add glossy finished and to protect the art. They turned out nice and added them on my Etsy shop. I think these are great for giveaways, gift for a friend or just display them on your refridgerator for daily inspirations.

Pattern Designs

Turning Your Kids Drawings into Pattern

My kids love to draw and paint. They will draw characters from video games. My youngest one is only seven years old, and she loves to doodle. One day she asked me, “mommy can you use my drawings for your pattern design”? And I said sure why not. I think the pattern turned out great. My daughter was excited and motivated her to draw more. She is very proud of the tote bag. Please check out https://www.redbubble.com/…/joan…/works/32995208-paper-dolls for more products.
