The coaster blanks are such a good size for this. I always love anything with heavily built-up texture of this sort - it's what I keep trying to do myself but never seem to take it far enough!

And I love "Pilgrim Screams". Just unsettling enough to be interesting.


Hey, thanks!  The build up was almost too much for me! I had to push my boundaries a bit to get it there. I really love the effect, though, and will definitely be doing more of this in future.  And I love that you love Pilgrim Screams. Wink

Ooh, I love the rainbow one the best but they are all so interesting to look at. Like tiny treasure hunts!
How did you create that rainbow effect, if you don't mind sharing? It's lovely.

Thank you!  The rainbow was done with spray alcohol inks. I used postbox red, lemon zest, a little pure sunshine, and blue (I can't remember the specific blue at the moment).  All of the orange/green/purple was created just by overlapping the primary colors so that they naturally created the secondary colors. I used a piece of paper to block off any areas I didn't want to be sprayed.  I hope you try it!

Hello again!

Here are some projects I've done lately.  These are all made on 4x4 MDF coaster blanks purchased from JoAnn. 

Tons of molds, mod melts, gesso, and alcohol inks.

Butterflies are a thing. Laser cut wood embellishments, little figures from tinythingsarecute.com, vintage measuring tape.

More butterflies and glitter.  I used a chipboard circle frame on this one, plus rub-ons, bits of lace, mod molds, and various other things.

I love Autumn but hate revisionist history, so I made this from Sizzix dies, scrapbooking embellishments and Tim Holtz word stickers. And a substantial amount of embossing powder.

Hey thanks!  Dimensional Magic is a real product - it gives a shiny, 3D effect to items that are covered in it - almost like clear puffy paint.

This was a fast project. The box is the top of a cardboard jewelry gift box, painted with acrylic and sprayed with alcohol inks, then glittered on the sides and back.  The heart is paperclay, sprayed with alcohol inks then rubbed with black acrylic and covered with mod podge hard coat and dimensional magic.

Pre-glitter and dimensional magic

I still need to spray it with a sealer to keep the glitter from falling off all over the place.

Hello!  I finished this project during the bleak winter days and we finally had enough natural sunlight to take a few photos. 

This is a cardboard organizer box covered in paper and filled with all manner of items.  Most of the items have something to do with being a place where hidden treasures or secrets are kept safe - nests, the hollow of a baby spoon, the shell shrine, the jar of wishes, the fuse box - all of them holding space for something sacred, significant, or fragile.
