Today Was Going Great...


Hello friends! Happy Memorial Day weekend! It's been a very long time since I have crafted just for the fun of it, and it was a blast. Simon Says Stamp's Monday challenge is We're All A-Buzz, and I couldn't pass it by.

This post will be short and sweet, as I made the background awhile ago when I first got my Distress Glazing Powders and was doing a Saturday Showcase tutorial, and I can't quite recall what I did. I didn't include this sample in the post, since it was way too long.

I covered a trio of the inserts from the Pattern Repeat die with Opaque Crackle paste and sprinkled with Antique Linen Glaze powder. I ended up smearing it with Twisted Citron crayon after I melted the powder to tie it in with the rest.


The bee saw it's first use out of the Geo Insects pack, cut from a scrap of watercolor paper colored with Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio Oxide sprays. The quote is a Snarky sticker colored with more of the Twisted Citron crayon.

I think that's the quickest project I've made and the shortest post I've written in a very long time, too. Happy crafting! Sara Emily
