About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Let the good times ROLL!!!!

 I love big chunky jewelry.......
I believe you need to make a statement no matter the occasion.

I think this one will do the trick.
Speaking of tricks, I would like to see this one in real life. 
Elephant on roller skates of sorts. 


Here's a close up of the stamped image.  It's from the Mary Vogel Lozinak series
 (plate #1399) that is available at here Viva Las Vegastamps!!!

I stamped it using Black Stazon onto white cardstock.  Then colored with Bic Markers. 
I used some crackle finish on the entire surface and let it dry, then I rubbed it with a sponge with ink to emphasize the cracks.  Modge podged the crackled image to a wooden disk. Wrapped the edges with leather cording and left the ends rather long to create the necklace part. Added a wooden wheel and bead; tied off the ends. Adhered a faux flower like kinda reminded me of a gear.  
Tied the ends together and now its ready to wear!!!

Until later, holy rollers.......Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
