Mustache Baby Onesie

I love that in addition to the new shaped bling that Imaginisce came out with, they also have a bottle of all black bling & it has different sized studs in it.  I made this cute onesie with them:

To do it I just cut out the mustache shape with my Silhouette, taped the negative to my onesie, and then filled it in with bling.  Then I went ahead and heated up the bling (to activate the adhesive on the backside of it)  by placing a paper towel over it and then ironing it.  -I could have used my i-rock on it too...but I was in a rush.  -Once done I just removed the template.

And then you have a fun mustache mask to play with.  ;)

Some "She Art" Mixed Media Canvases

I decide to take the "She Art" class that Christy is teaching online so that I'd be "forced" to create stuff for me.  :)  Even though I do mixed media already it's fun to see how other people do it & to get ideas from them.  Here's one two of the canvases I've created so far....this first one is a 4"x4" canvas that I think I'm going to send to my (almost 5 yr old) niece.  She's VERY into pink dresses, so I figure this is right up her alley.
