My Cutting Files

Hello Everyone...after much thought I have decided once again to share my cutting files with you all....If you are interested there is a link at the top of my blog underneath the header which will take you to my download site for the files.....Please be aware...while browsing through my previous blogposts... when you find a file you like.....the link for that image is broken...you will need to go to the link at the top of my blog to do a search for the file to download....as it is too time consuming to go through each and every post and correct the links for the files. I trust you will all understand this.
I too, will again offer the entire collection for purchase on DVD if anyone would be interested...you will find the option for that in my ETSY store....As I create new files they will be complied on a DVD in the future for those who prefer to combine that way.

Happy Monday to All!!!

 Good Morning Everyone....I hope you all have enjoyed a WONDERFUL weekend...It was such a beautiful weekend full of sunshine...a wee bit of rain....but the grass and flowers enjoyed that....right??

So I enjoyed another weekend of fun creative time in my ARTHaven.....I was blessed to have another mixed media idea come to mind over the week and I sketched it out......here's what my vision was.....


The phrase I've written out reads.....
When you feel alone and a drift, 
He is always there to hold you 
and navigate you through the trials in life.   
by Penny Duncan

I've decided I rather enjoy recording the process of each creation....it is fun to look back to see the process come together...and I enjoy sharing the process with anyone who cares to go along on the journey.....so I thought I would share the video with you here.....



Wasn't that fun? I must admit...I am truly enjoying making my embellishment pieces from scratch....that way I'm able to achieve exactly what I'm working towards.....I also thought I would share the still photos for you here to get a better close up of the piece.....as I will also admit...I'm rather proud of it....














So....what do you think???? I absolutely love how it turned out....I would love to hear your thoughts....Like the others I have listed this one in My Store which you can find by clicking on the image below.....


Something new I've also delved into that's pretty cool in my mind.....I've started taking some of my art pieces and creating Wearable ART......How cool right??? If you would like to check out My Wearable Art......Please feel free to click on the image below......would love for you to take a visit.....


Isn't that FUN!!!! ;)  I thought so....OK...that catches me up for the day.....I hope you all enjoyed your visit and I would LOVE to hear from you....I want to thank you as always...for taking time out of your day to stop by and visit with me....I do so hope you will come by again.....I would like to wish you all a very blessed week ahead!! Until next time!!

Now I'm excited to share with you some stills of the piece....it's beauty and depth of texture is hard to get a full grasp of in just pictures......

Hello Hello....I hope this morning brings everyone to a beautiful day ahead.....I also hope you all enjoyed another awesome weekend!! I surely did!! Spent most of the weekend playing in my ARTHaven...Started on a new mixed media piece...though not yet quite ready to share.....so much needs time to try before I can begin the next step...learning to be patient.. ;)

But in the process I did create a couple of new stencil designs and cutting files....sharing links to those in my store below....for those who would like to get their hands on them....you can click on the images and they will take you to the page in My Store.





Now for those who are really only interesting in the files...thought I would offer the ability to purchase the cutting files as well.....

Happy Sunday to you all....

I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful weekend....Sunday already...and another workday rolls around tomorrow....It's been hot hot hot here this weekend...and of all times for it to happen the AC on the bedroom side of our home went kaput this weekend.....rather warm sleeping...but thankfully a new unit is to be installed tomorrow!!  Thank goodness!!!
So this weekend I worked on another Mural.....I have had this idea in my mind for a couple of weeks.....decided to sketch it out.....here's what I visioned...

I thought this time I would record the entire process from start to finish of this piece.....it took me over 4 hours without breaks and sleep.....and I KNOW no one would hang tight for that long so I sped up a lot of the video....though it is still rather lengthy.....if you tire of a segment you can certainly fast forward through it.....but I will say I rather enjoyed going back through it and seeing the vision in my mind come to life on the mural......the size of this piece is 11"x14"....without further ado....here's the tutorial....


Wasn't it FUN to see it go from a white blank canvas to a piece that looks like a scene from paradise??  Well...at least I think so anyway.....Thought I would share the still photos here for you so you can see close up pics.......You can find this in My Store if anyone finds this is a piece that would be perfect for their home...as a wonderful loving reminder of the sacrifice Jesus made for each of us...if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior!!









As I mentioned above...this piece has been listed in My Store should one of you realize this is a piece which must have a place in your home....to remind of you that loving gift God has blessed us with!!


The stencils you see in this piece are some that I have designed and created....They are listed in My ETSY Store for anyone who may want to get them for your creative projects....they are made with good quality stencil material and will last for a very very long time...as they are very durable.

Also....below are a couple new stencil sets I've just listed in My ETSY Store for anyone who might find them on their want list.....If you would like to see more about them...just click on the image below and they will take you directly to My ETSY Store....






SO......That catches me up for this evening......I sure hope you enjoyed your visit with me....Would love to hear from you....also would love for you to give me a follow here or on my YouTube Channel or Instagram, Twitter or Facebook......Thank you as always for stopping by....I do hope you'll come visit again....I wish you all a very blessed week...Until next time...
