'Life On The Farm' on the Pallet Box.  




Have I told you "This is my favorite transfer so far"?  That and the new 'Vintage Tractor' and our 'Vintage Truck' (which is not retiring by the way - it is way too popular!)  It is hard to make a mistake on this one, the transfer is designed so well.  You should try it!  So, come and watch my video.  I explain the three helpful tips to layering and also how I came up with my barn red color paste.

My video:




Come back next Wednesday to see what I do with the other side of my pallet board.....




Hmmmmm😉 Hint:  think serving tray....... You'll have to come back to see it.

My Vintage Stack Of Books

OK, I'm lovin this new trend:  Vintage book stacks!
It seems like I see them everywhere, so I decided I needed to try my hand at it.  LOL  
Here is a picture of my vintage books:



I love how this turned out!  As close to perfect that I will ever get.  Don't you just love makin 'vintage'?  It is so forgiving!

I also used the 'hello' from my silkscreen transfer 'Welcome Trio' on my milk jug sitting by my fireplace.





As always here is my how to video:




Ya gota love Vintage!

Trying The Masking Technique with Chalk Paste

Ok, here is a fun technique called 'Masking'.  It works well with many of our large background transfers.  With this one I used our 'Modern Floral' transfer once again.  I used it previously on a decorative pillow (in which I made a video - of course).  I also used a 'Welcome' transfer, Our huge 18" Round, Shimmer Gold & Bright White Paste.


This shimmer Gold Paste actually shimmers with gold glitter.


Here is a picture of my two projects together.  Same transfer but two different surfaces.  One is ink and one is paste.

So are you ready to give this technique a try?  Come on, you know you want to!

Not Adulting Today!

Ink on my T-shirt:
.....I'm not.....  ADULTING TODAY (tomorrow doesn't look good either)
tehehehehe 😂🤣🤪



Love this!  Isn't it cute.  Who wouldn't want that from time to time?  I will be busy making a few of these this afternoon.  🎨 The ink colors I used on this t-shirt are:  Papaya, Couture Teal & Bright White.  The transfer is:  'Not Today'.  Now I can heat set this with either an Easy Press or an Iron.  Use parchment paper with both.  And..... (drum 🥁 roll)  it's permanent!  WooHoo!!💃🏻

Modern Floral Transfer & Ink On My Pillow

Love how you can customize colors and mix transfers to decorate.  Decorate your way!  And the bonus is....it's fun too!



I love how this turned out.  It did take some prepping and some patience.  This is a large transfer and I had to make sure it did not stick on itself.  I used Chalk Couture's Ink Mat which acts as a blotter & it is sticky so you can press the pillow cover smooth over the mat.  Than when I put the sticky silkscreen transfer on and smoothed out any wrinkles or bubbles I had a very successful transfer of ink to pillow - no bleeding under the design!  Yea!!😀😃😉 The supplies I used are:  Ink Mat, Eucalyptus ink, Large handled squeegee & Modern Floral silkscreen transfer.

Here is my how to video:




Love this stuff!

Changing Up My Lazy Susan

Well, it's time to change my Lazy Susan.  This is an old wooden lazy susan that I have repurposed with black chalk paint (not to be mixed up with Chalk paste or ink) and then a little natural wax, I use Minwax. Wipe on, wipe off. (LOL from Karate Kid). I keep changing up the designs using different silkscreen transfer and chalk paste from Chalk Couture.  I love that I can do this, it fun to try and decide what to do with it next.  This is what I did:



I used two transfers:  Vintage Laurel Wreath & 'C' Monogram (We have a transfer for every letter in the alphabet + the & sign).  I used Gold Shimmer paste (this is new!) and two colors of green:  Garden Herb and one that I mixed myself.  Watch the video to see how I did it.  🎨 👀




I always try to set aside some time to play and decorate my house at the same time!  It's a win, win!
