Renee Zarate's Bolton House is still in New England but Renee herself has moved on to South Carolina. The days are a little different now, no garden to take care of means more studio time. Dealing with snow and blizzards will be a thing of the past but there will be new challenges. Challenges like...how will we ever carry these two chairs and this huge umbrella down to the beach? Stay tuned.

It's a Blog Hop showcasing Joy Clair Stamps!
Welcome to Day Two of our Imagine Crafts/Joy Clair stamps blog hop! Today I'm sharing my magnet project created with Joy Clair "Hugs and Smiles" collection of stamps and Imagine Crafts products. I have included the instructions and the supply list used to make these simple, miniature works of art. They measure 3" square each so they don't take up a lot of real estate space on your fridge.
Be sure and check out each artist on the hop and leave a comment to be included in the draw for prizes.
Step 1: Spray paper flowers that
will be added later with Fireworks! craft spray, the ones here were sprayed
first with Lilac Posies then a small amount of Paris Dusk was applied with the
tube attached to the spray nozzle. The
colors can be adjusted by adding more water and blotting with a paper towel.
Allow the flowers to thoroughly dry. Next mist a small 3” square canvas (or
several small canvases if the color is to be the same) using Lilac Posies
Fireworks! craft spray, then spray with water and allow the color to move
around the canvas. Place a stencil on the wet canvas, take a paper towel and
blot off a small amount of the ink to add interest to the background. Dry with
a heat tool.
Step 2: Place a strip of Washi
tape across the bottom of the canvas. Stamp a word with black ink, emboss with
clear powder, and melt with a heat tool.
Step 3: Glue the flower and
leaves onto the upper corner of the canvas.
Attach a self-adhesive magnet to the back of the canvas.
Thanks so much for stopping and be sure to leave comments (one per blog) during these two days of hopping so you can be entered to win a one of two $25 Joy Clair Stamps Gift Cards or one of two $25 Gift Cards from Imagine!!! Winners will be announced on the Joy Clair and Imagine Blogs at the end of the month.
