Stained Glass Horsehead by Judie

For starters, Judie makes 2 copies of the pattern, 1 pattern is cut into pieces to cut the glass.
She has a wide variety of gorgeous glass to choose from for all of her designs.  And this horsehead will be mighty proud strutting around outside of the barn.

Once all of the pieces of glass have been cut out, it is time for the copper tape.
All copper taped, and ready for flux and solder! 
All ready to shine!!!
Saddle up!!!

Nicely done, Judie!  Thank you for sharing your project.

Here's abit more of Judie's Stained Glass Creations

I spy my pineapple and ukulele...
and everybody needs a little pocket mirror...

Rosebud Art Share

This work of art on a wall in Sandy "Rosebud" Scarano's home, is three dimensional with lots of texture, and it is FANTASTIC! She created it right next to her window where she can look out at the real robins in the springtime.  She used grout, and paints and moss and other stuff for the nest of eggs that Mother Robin is hovering over.  You really do have to see and touch this in person to appreciate it fully. 

But here she is in her artistic way, jazzing up a plain wooden cabinet, with some of the same techniques.
Starting this project with Kwik Seal Caulk, she creates her fabulous rosebuds with such ease, it cracks me up.  Me, well I've had blobs and blobs of caulk that look nothing like roses...just blobs of white kwik seal caulk.  That's why Rosebud is Rosebud! 

All painted white before the finishing touches
All dolled up and ready to go!
A wonderful transformation.  Thank you Sandy "Rosebud" for sharing your project with us at the Arty Tea Party! 

Thanks for stopping by.  You can find Sandy and more of her work on Facebook!

Art Share

The talented chics of the Arty Tea Party Guild share a wide variety of skills.  This work of paper art, including the face made of paper clay is from Kitty Mitchell.  This appeared in the July/August 2016 issue of Somerset Studio magazine for the Paper Doll Challenge.  Mounted on a wooden board, she measures approx. 8 " x 10".  Completely done in paper from a lovely printed napkin, to embossed and inked and colored papers, there's a real story here..."Who knows where time goes".  Well, she has a few secrets about that, I'm sure, based on her facial expression here. 

Nicely done, Kitty.  Keep up the good work. 

We will be featuring more art from the Arty Tea Party gals.  Thanks for stopping by!  Aloha!

Onward to 2017

As we bring 2016 to a close, I for one, am prepping for an AB FAB 2017, full of more "creative chaos" than my family can stand!  And this is part of the paper stash that I have been stockpiling over the past couple weeks during this fabulous Christmas season.  Coffee dyed papers all to be used in my new line of Journals.  Now I have these papers stashed in a wooden box, lined with cedar and palo santo wood.  These papers smell fantastic, and they can hardly wait to be included in books. 

I will also have some paper packets available for purchase for your own Junk Journals, Smash Books, or whatever scrapbooking project you may have going.
