Time to hop!



Are you ready?! I've gathered a group of my crafty friends for this love fest! If you've got an artistic sweet tooth, we've got the eye candy! So let's go!

How about a grungy, industrial heart to start off!







I used a 5.5" paper maché heart as my palette. Seth Apter's Baked Textures never fail! Different layers of paint and paper combine for some grungy goodness - rusted, patinaed, and aged to perfection. A little industrial romance for us artsy folks! 














And now for a giveaway! How about a couple of stamp sheets from Blank Page Muse (formerly Sin City Stamps)?! One is Flamingo Row and the other is Vintage Fashion Art. They've not been used but I have a tendency to just throw stuff together in a drawer so you might see little fuzzies from brushing them off with a paper towel or maybe flecks of glitter 😜


Leave a comment on this page with your email addy or social media link so I can contact you if you're the winner! I'll pick a winner on MONDAY, 18 February!

So whatcha think - need another fix? Well, there's more for you to ogle! Stop by these other crafty blogs and show them some love! We'd also love it if you'd follow us, too! 💖


It's Oddly Appealing - YOU ARE HERE!
