Cowgirls, Glitter, & Mini Steampunk Journals

Cowgirl "Lillie Mae"

Howdy kids.
Hope that you are all having a fantastic Thursday.
We are doing fine.
Wanted to share a few things.
We have cowgirl fever here in the studio. 
Must be to go with the Arizona heat.
Created and posted a new cowgirl collage sheet this morning in our shop
Here are some web images from it to inspire.

Yesterday we had a fun afternoon teaching glitter techniques at Mystic Paper.
Twenty four hours, two showers, and after a swim,
we are still finding glitter in curious places.

 Glitter Techniques

 Next week at Mystic Paper we venture into "Image Transfers" of all types.

Tonight we will be hanging at CraftFusion in Chandler, Az.
For our weekly technique night...tonight is Perfect Pearls
Come and learn how best to get more shimmer and shine in your pieces.

Also jump over to G45's blog today for our video tutorial 
on how to alter those very cool G45 Metal Tags.

After we altered these fine pieces we transformed them into a
mini steampunk journal necklace.

We will go into further detail on this project here on the blog on Monday.
Have a great Thursday all!
