Music Note Paper Cone Wreath

Hi all!

I wanted to do something different and get a jump on my holiday decor. I was browsing the always-dangerous for time suck Pinterest and I came a cross a great tutorial here:

I thought, hmmmmm, I have all the stuff to make that here! And it is really cold today, so, what the heck! 

I also used 5"x7" sheets. I cut some sheets from an old clarinet book, I have had it for awhile and I am slowly working my way through the pages. 

I added a 3rd inner row at the behest of my husband who thought it would look better. It does, I think, look fuller and a little better this way.

I inked my edges with Prima Ingvild Bolme chalk ink in Dark Bark and I sprayed some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Antique Brass over the whole thing. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Swirlydoos Round Robin

After I finished this, I realized...NO TITLE! Egads! AND after I took a set of pics, it fell to the floor, busted up and I had to redo some of it. Ugh. At least it turned out okay!

As I try to keep my blog going, I would appreciate any comments and please follow me! 

I used a few of the Prima Trinkets clock hands to add movement and a harder design element.

A few Kaisercraft rubons are all the words it needed!

Some Tim Holtz idea-ology brand mini bulbs (in love with these!) ans a few hex bolts I swiped from hubby's toolbox. The yellow flower is really a white one sprayed with Mr. Huey's mist in Custard.

I used a little Prima chalk ink in teal on this Prima resin frame. Both are the Invild Bolme line! LOVE her designs from them. 

Another Prima-Invild item, the zipper pull. I used a TH Distress marker to color the word on the zipper. 

I hope that you enjoy the closeups!

This is a layout I did at a recent crop at my LSS. I had such a fun time and got a whopping 5 layouts done! WOOT!

Our cat, squirrel, so named because as a kitten, he dragged a squirrel into the house and hid it in a closet for later. EW. Just a couple weeks ago he brought a bird in the house. YES, a bird! He is a true hunter. 

Even though he brings in wild animals to "play" with and then devour, he also is quite the snuggler and loves to cozy up to us at night. 

Thanks for stopping by!

I loved getting totally messy and using gesso and a Tattered Angels (I think) mask with all that canvas!
