Mod Podge Embellishments

I found these Mod Podge sticks and molds at Walmart on Clearance and really wanted to try them.  Here is what I created! They are really simple to make and really light weight to use on Cards/Scrapbooking pages etc...
 
Take a look!
 
 
After being set in the Molds I took them out, trimmed them and painted them with Acrylic paint in White or Grey.  I then took my Perfect Pearls and rubbed them with a little to give them a Shimmer.  You can see those on the left of the photo.
Just another handmade Embellishment for projects.

Red, White and Blue Thank you Card

I must be in a Patriotic mood because I just finished another Red, White and Blue Card. lol!
 
I colored this image a LONG time ago and thought that i'd add it to a card today.  I can't even find where I got it now. If you know please tell me so that I can give credit where credit is due.
 
I thought that I would send this card to my Brother and Sister-in-law for entertaining us while in New Mexico this past week.

Altered Journal cover- "Bee Yourself"

Good Morning! I'm back in Indiana after a wonderful vacation to New Mexico and Colorado. Glad to be home with my craft supplies! You never realize how much you love your hobby until you can't do it. lol!
 
Today, I've chosen to post my new Journal cover that I altered last night.  This is the journal that I use to write my thoughts and events in. I started writing in it during my vacation.
 



 
 
 
This was a plain black journal that I bought at Walmart on clearance for $1 that I couldn't resist.  I applied Gesso to the cover to give it a base coat before applying Luminaire paint in green. I used my homemade Modeling paste to apply the Honeycomb pattern here and there.  The honey comb I found on pinterest printed it out and colored it with my Marvy Uchida Big Brush markers after laying it down with Mod Podge. The Bee's are a Repeat Impression stamp that I have stamped on an old hymnal page cut out and colored. The Black letters are from a DCWV Stack that I had bought years ago.
