Try It Tuesday~ decorating eggs, some ideas!

Hi guys!
I did some fun projects with plastic eggs!!  One of then came from
 Tim Holtz~ he has a tutorial on his blog.  It involves alcohol inks and plastic eggs.  I just used what I had. My plastic eggs are yellow and my ink selection is earth tones~ 
but hey, here come camouflage eggs.

The boys will like these :)  One set has more green tones and the 
other  set I added more brown.

This one was inspired by wrapping a soda bottle with twine
 (granddaughter craft project), so why not an egg.
  I did a big plastic egg.

I used a strong wet glue and just started at one end and slowly wrapped the egg.
I stamped a small Butterfly (Darkroom Door) and added it to the top and the word "joy".

These are eggs I did several years ago. Ukrainian Easter Eggs.  You can find
 another post I did on "Pysanky" HERE.  These are duck eggs.

And here they are all lined up~
Thanks for stopping by~
See ya soon.

Hi guys!
Just a fun scrapbook page to start the week off.
We love to juice and try all kinds of concoctions.  This one is apple and carrot. The juice will last up to three days in the fridge, but we never have to worry about that~it is always gone.

This set is great for adding just the right amount of color to a project.

Stamp Carving~ flower set!

Hi guys!
I've been doing some stamp carving.  I did them a little different ~instead of leaving the shape solid, I carved out the centers.  Making the shape in an outline.  
I need more work on this, my lines aren't the same size.  Need to keep practicing~

Here are a few photos showing my process~

I try to get them as clean and precise as possible so I wear "cheaters" 

 Here is my card~ 
Just used scraps, to create this using the  flower set!

See you tomorrow for 
Try It Tuesday~

A small acrylic clipboard~ Clear Scraps!

Hi guys!! I have a  project using one of the new, small clipboards by Clear Scraps.  For this project I used the small Scalloped Landscape Clipboard.  This is so cute, actually all the clipboards are keepers!!!  I decorated this one, keeping in mind, I wanted to use it as a clipboard. So with that said, here it is~

The paper is by Kaiser Crafts. The photo can be changed out for paper . Either way works out great!!!  And it has the "super cute" factor going for it too!

This is just one, of many different styles and sizes.  They all have one thing in common ~ super cute !!!  
See ya soon~
