Love is in the Air!

I have two projects to share with you today. I was having fun this weekend creating 'love'ly projects!! First, I made a magnet. I love making magnets. If you read my blog, you already know that!!
This started life as a child's wooden domino that I picked up at Target in the $1 spot a year or two ago. I bought a few sets of them and pull them out when the mood strikes! I colored the base of it with alcohol inks. Colored the sides of the domino with black Sharpie. I stamped the image with Versafine ink on tissue paper. Decoupaged it onto the domino and then colored the image with alcohol inks. I added a strip of black paper down the side, some lace and a tiny strip of Ruche. I attached a string of pearls around the entire piece. Stamped the word on white cardstock and layered onto a piece of Ruche and glued it to the front. Add a magnet and it is done!


Materials: wooden domino, heart/rose image (Onyx Xpressions), Alcohol Inks (Ranger), Versafine-Black Onyx (Tsukineko), Heritage Black Colormates, Red Ruche (WorldWin Papers), lace, string pearls, tissue paper, Mod Podge, Crafter's Pick The Ultimate Glue, scissors


My next project is also one that you may have seen in different form before on my blog. I made another candle sleeve luminarie!! I had to make a Valentine's Day one!! This was so much fun to make and I love how it looks when it is lit. Please excuse the photo of it lit....my camera hates me and any photos taken without lots of natural light.
And here it is when it is lit...

For complete instructions on this project, please visit the Paper Crazy blog. It isn't up yet, but I will be sure to post when it is!
Have a creatively wonderful day!!!

In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the internet will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
