Copic Ciao Skin Set Review

I have few of the Copic sketches but I wanted to go ahead and get the skin colors for my Copic collection but as we all know this markers are very pricey so I've decided to go ahead and get the Copic Ciaos which are a little more affordable and with a help of a coupon I got this set in a very reasonable price and it was worth every penny. Watch!!!


Spectrum Noir Awesome Customer Service

Spectrum Noir has been one of my markers choice to color my cards, ATC's and many more artful projects I have created in the past years. However recently I've ordered all of them, the old design and 2 of the markers came completely dry. I had no luck finding the refills so I've decided to contact them and then they have responded back immediately with a solution. Watch!!!

How To Make a Mixed Media Assemblage Box

I love making this type of projects, was very fun to create something different. I was very inspired after I did the Mini Matchbox from Tim Holtz so I though making something a little bigger. This is what they call a Mixed Media Assemblage Box, I found a jewelry box size 3.75x3.75 in perfect for my project.

I've gathered metal and paper embellishments from different designers, I had a World Map on my paper stash and work with it to cover the box, then I've made some Tim Holtz Rosetes to make them like a support to the picture and that work beautifully. The last step was to create a collage with all my embellishments and make a cool Steampunk Mini Shadow box.

Tim Holtz Tag of 2014 - March

Here I am again with Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 for the month of March. Like usual this project had to be the most challenging tag so far, everything that he used I don't have so I had to manage to get as close but not exactly as his work. I put allot of though into this tag and I'm glad I liked the end result, hopefully you will too.

Hello everyone, my Christmas 2013 is absolutely creative and fun. I've came up with some cool ideas to create nice ornaments for my new Christmas Tree that a friend of mine gave to me as a gift. 

My problem was that the new tree was bigger and I need it more ornaments and since I didn't want to spend to much money I though it would be great to do my own ornaments with the supplies I've had around in my stash. So here are some of my videos that I did past Christmas 2013.
