In gratitude, Trish’s Tuesday Tag

Still playing in my “unplanner” with the lovelies at documented life project/art to the fifth. This is my PAC, mine is a tag, for the third week in February. The theme was gratitude. I am so grateful for so many everything’s. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! And I love my tag!

Check out the lovely layers of mixed media: acrylic paint, ink, modeling paste, stickers, water colors, collage ephemera.

“Loved” Collage Page

“Loved” Collage Page

So…like many I am participating in the documented life project 2016 –the unplanner. Having a blast with the no-pressure creating concept–part art journal, part planner, part scrapbook, part documentation, part smash book–all crafty fun. 

Last week I made the “loved” collage as my February un-planner divider page.

Throwback Thursday-Art ToolBox Kit

I am trying out this Throwback Thursday idea…not sure I can make it fly.  I am struggling with my various tech archives to share some blog postings from 2008-2011.  We shall see.

In any case, when I was running Royal Tart, the boys were really interested in all the designs I created as well as all the neat arts and crafts I was making so I made them their own “tool” box kits .

Inside each toolbox: A glue stick, tacky glue, tape, markers, pencils, water colors, stamps, dimensional glue dots, scissors, stickers, embellishments, letters and other typography, rub-ons, etc.  I also included an art journal that would’t fit in the very full, should I admit to overfull, tool boxes.

I managed to come across a bunch of “old” scrapbook stuff at a garage sale that had never been used.  It was new but wasn’t what was currently on trend.  The boys didn’t know and wouldn’t have cared had they known.  I managed to fill each of their tool boxes to the very tippy top for only $10 each including the art journal.  That was 5 years ago.  They still have their toolboxes and still use them.  I should probably get to refilling them with some new-old crafting stuff–they would love it!

Cheers,

Trish
