Gold & Silver Bookmarks

Hello, To those of you who continue to be so faithful to my blog- Thank you! I know I haven’t posted in a while but I have not given up- far from it! I have been doing a lot of creating, and hope to update this blog with all of the fun projects (both big and small) that I have been up to. For more up-to-date information, make sure you check out my website http://www.sris-arts.com

I used black paper with Gold & Silver pen to create these fun zentagle bookmarks!

Wedding Signs

I hand painted these signs for my friend’s outdoor farm wedding using Molotow Paint Markers from my art store. Molotow paints are waterproof and weather proof, and though they are a little expensive, they are AWESOME! The wood wasn’t primed, so it did kind of destroy the markers I had used, but it was TOTALLY worth it to see the signs in action! Needless to say, it was one of the most unique and personalized weddings I have ever been to.

Congratulations to my friends D&M on the milestone!

Push Pin Map!

This is a project that I have been wanting to do ever since I graduated. I’ve been fortunate to travel a lot, and it was fun going through old memories and pushing pins into my new map :) I can’t wait to fill my board up with exciting travel adventures!

How I did it:

First I got a 24×36″ frame from Walmart online at $33 including shipping. If you live in the USA, it’s almost half that cost! I also ordered a laminated Map from National Geographic USA for $12 including shipping, got two packs of Cork from Rona for $24, Spray glue from Rona for $6, and some Krylon Gold Spray for $4. I was extremely pleased and excited with the results.

First I lightly used spray adhesive on the backing of the frame, attached the cork board, cut the edges to size, and let it dry. Then, by spraying close to the cork (an inch or two away), I was able to get enough glue to stick the map onto the cork. I used a ruler to smooth out any bubbles.

After putting the dried board with the cork and map back into the frame, I then sprayed some pins I found by my moms sewing machine in Gold. This was a small detail that I think really made my map look extremely classy.
