About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

"M" is for Maroon

This week at the Outlawz, there is a color challenge and it goes something like this.....Make a project in which the primary color begins with the first letter of your first name. The color can be in any language. If there isn't a color that begins with your first name, make a project in which the main color begins with a letter that appears no where in your name.

So, "M" is for Miranda and for maroon.  Here is my DT entry.
As you can see, it is an easel card. The card base is a maroon piece of shimmer paper from DCWV. The next layer is a piece of plain black card stock. The next layer is a piece of kraft of with maroon diamonds. It is from one of last years Christmas papers from Recollections. The image was printed onto a piece of maroon scrap paper. The image is another one that my nephew drew. All I did was some light coloring with sharpie markers. I also did some sponging around the edges with black ink from Studio G. (If you are unaware, Studio G products can be bought at Wal-Mart, Michaels, etc. They usually cost lest than $1) The RIP ribbon I had in my stash. The sentiment was a freebie from Create with TLC. I printed it onto kraft card stock and distressed it with vintage photo. I hope you like it!
