Steampunk Mini

Here is the most recent mini album I made. Had a shelf at work that I needed to put something on. I thought why not photos of the family. I used a lot of Tim Holtz product in this album. Lots of metal and had a blast. The whole album itself is grungeboard. I painted each page then cut the papers. Left it pretty unison on each page and didn't make pockets or pull outs. Thought it needed to be simple since it was going to be at work. Sorry not the greatest picture. My phone takes horrible photos and I forgot to take a pic before I took it to work.

Halloween Mason Jars

I have been loving all the crafts with mason jars lately. I painted these mason jars with Martha Stewart glass paint. Used two coats and it still didn't cover as well as I hoped. Then I baked it per the directions on her website. Once I was done with the painting I used my Happy Hauntings cartridge to create the black silhouettes. Last thing was putting the hemp rope around the tops of the jars, put a candle in and they were done. This was a time consuming project due to the waiting time for the paint between coats and the bake time. Not sure I would use this paint for jars again as I couldn't get my hand in them to make sure they were completely covered in paint. Hope you all have a Happy and Safe Halloween.
