Sun & Surf Kit by Buttons Galore and More ~ Pencil Toppers!

Hi there!!
Today I'm sharing a FUN kid craft.
Perfect for Summer craft days. I'm using the
Sun and Surf Monthly Kit by Buttons Galore and More.


These were easy to make and FUN!!! The Fish flat backs are a little
wonky so that makes them perfect. Kids will love them!!


I used a 2" scalloped circle die and a 1 1/2" by Spellbinder to
get the shape.  I'm using some scraps of felt that I had in my stash.
The greeting tags are stamped on binding tape and then glued
in between the scalloped layers.


The little fish are called Aquarium / Flatbackz. They are in the kit.  
Glue one in the center of the pencil topper, along with some
flat back pearls.  Leave an opening for the pencil when adhering together.
Add the flat back pearls for water bubbles.  Complete with twine or ribbon.


Thanks for stopping by!!

Then Christ Came Art Journal Page with Creative Worship by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps~

Hi there!!!
Today I'm sharing an Art Journal Page using many
stamps by Creative Worship by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. 
I love mixing the stamp sets and using parts from
each set.  Hoping to show the stamps go well together.


The inspiration for this page is a song by MercyMe. The song speaks to  
me on so many levels.  Beautiful words!!


The page background is created using Distress Oxide inks, stencils and
stamps. I first add the color, then stencils and last add the stamps.
The Beautiful Bird set is stamped out separately, then colored and
 trimmed out.

Sun & Surf Kit by Buttons Galore and More ~ Mixed Media Mermaid Tag!

 Hi there!!
Today I'm sharing a Mixed Media Mermaid Tag using
the Sun and Surf Monthly Kit by Buttons Galore and More.
The kit comes with some really cool Mermaid buttons. along with
other buttons and babbles.  You get a freebie too!!!!
 

A tag background was created using Distress Oxide inks (watered down)
and acrylic paint.  Stamps and flat back pearls (they come in the kit)
were added also.  The fishnet is attached with a stapler. I cut the shank off
 the Mermaid buttons and used them like an  embellishment. 
 The Mermaid buttons are attached with hot glue or a strong
wet glue.


Ink can be added to the buttons for shading too.  Easy and looks
great! 
The flat back pearls are added in random spots on
the tag.  They kind of remind me of air bubbles in the water :):)

Faith Over Fear Art Journal Page with Creative Worship by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps ~

 Hi There!!
Excited to share my 4th project using 
Creative Worship Stamps by Sweet 'n Sassy to create a
mixed media Art Journal Page.  


I created a messy background using acrylic paint and Distress
Oxide inks.  I used stencils and stamps to create a fun, crazy look.


The words are stamped out, each letter cut out and then attached to 
the front of the page.  I used the Sew Many Stitches to give the
appearance the letters had been stiched on.

Sun & Surf Kit by Buttons Galore and More ~ Seahorse Mixed Media Tag!

Hi there!
Today I'm sharing a project from
the Sun and Surf  Monthly Kit by 
Buttons Galore and More. The kit comes out every 4-6
weeks and it comes with 7 products,  You can find projects,  
using the kit, on the website.



I created a mixed media style background for the tag using
Distress Oxide inks and acrylic paint, for splatters.  The
fishnet was attached, with a stapler, and then the buttons
 with strong adhesive.  I love how the seahorse buttons look
on the fishnet. I clipped the back of the button making
 it a flat back.


The buttons and flat back pearls, in the Sun & Surf  Kit, added 
great dimension and interest to the project. 


You can also search the Novelty Buttons for Summer related
buttons!
Other products used: stamps: Darkroom Door and Studio Light.
adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
