Fall themed Art Journal page with progress video and pictures.

"Fall is when nature turns to gold"
  Today I am featuring an art Journal page.   I used papers from basic Grey.  I also used my copic air brush and Sheri Baldi " my bestie images". 
  It took over 3 hours to complete this project.  I hope you will enjoy the progress video below.  It is speed up 16 times to be sure that I could the video in a decent amount of time.
  When you are fusing pieces of shrink plastic you will need some patience.  As you will see in the video I did have some difficulty with the first piece that I tried to shrink.  If this happens to you then please just keep trying.  If all else fails, just begin again.
  The pumpkin die is from Accucut Crafts. If you have any questions, please contact me at Ms.Rhetta@gmail.com
  Stamp happy and be a blessing!
Until next time . . .

A video tutorial "How to clean your stamping Acrylic Blocks"

Friday, August 29, 2014

A tutorial with Pictures and a Video on
How to clean your acrylic stamping blocks

  If your acrylic block is dirty and stained like the one above first you will need to gather, a baby wipe and some hand sanitizer, or some rubbing alcohol and an old kitchen wash rag.

  You will want to put a generous amount of the hand sanitizer onto the block as shown above.  Smear it around with your fingers and allow it to set for 30 seconds to 2 minutes. This will loosen up any dirt, stains and adhesives that are present.

  Now you will use those baby wipes with a firm hand and circular motions to clean off the block, you may have to repeat these steps several times to restore your block to a like new finish.  Any adhesive can be scraped away with a blunt object.  The block should then be cleaned using fresh baby wipes.  You can also take it to your sink and rise it off with warm soap and water.
  Another alternative is to do a quick scrub in the sink with soap and water and put your blocks on the top shelf of your dishwasher.  Please note, this does not work as well as simply using the baby wipes and hand sanitizer to do the job. 

  This is not a long or difficult process.  It does take patience and is well worth your time.  

  Here is a video tutorial on how to clean your blocks.

  Stamp Happy and be a blessing!
Until next time . . .

Vacation shopping haul and art journal page with TWO video's!

Thursday, August 21, 2014

 Hello Friends!

 I have had a very exciting week.  I did some traveling to see a dear friend and do some serious retail therapy.  I enjoyed some relaxing, good food and good company!
The first video I have for you today is of the art journal page. The second is the video of the things I purchased while I was away.  
Have a terrific day, Stamp Happy and be a blessing!

To the moon art journal page:

The video for the scrap booking and stamp haul during my "mini" vacation.  Please note I am having problems getting the pictures to transfer from my phone, once I "thither" my phone to my computer, that should solve the problem.  Until then I hope you enjoy the video.  Here is just one of the pictures from the stamp store "Loving Hands" that I visited near Fort Bragg, NC.,

Now for the video:

Stamp Happy and be a blessing. Please always be kind.

Until next time ...

Allow your dreams to soar -- art journal page with video progress

Friday, August 15, 2014

Hi Friends

Thank goodness it's Friday!

Today is a quick post to showcase the art journal page I completed last night. Due to some problems with Movie Maker and with Cyberlink Power director, this post is late going up.

After fussing with it on and off for more than 8 hours, I gave up he fight, did very little editing, put the video in eight time speed up mode, did the voice over and was just frankly glad to be done with it.  Ever had a day like that?!  I'm sure you have.  Hasn't everyone?!

Enjoy the progress/process video.  If you want a chance to win the Zenspirations "Inspirations" "Designs to feed your spirit book", please just leave a comment below this post for a chance to win.  Drawing will be held around August 24th.

Stamp Happy and be a blessing!

Until next time...
