OWH Sketch #11 is Blooming for Operation Write Home Memorial Day Bloghop 2012

WELCOME to the HOP of all BLOGHOP's! 

Welcome to this stop on Operation Write Home's Memorial Day Bloghop 2012. This is my fourth year participating...thanks so much for joining us in celebrating!!! Our family is so proud and grateful for all of our men and women serving in the armed forces. My brother-in-law just returned from his deployment to Afghanistan at the end of April. My sister and her two "Weinee-tots"{Daschunds} are so happy for his return.

My card design is following Operation Write Home's Sketch #11. I am using a floral Mary Vogel Lozinak Stamp from Viva Las Vegastamps! stamped on a paper painted using a technique from Traci Bautista's "Collage Unleashed". Layered on a natural brown handmade paper is a hand misted black cardstock using a mist made of Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer and Bronze Terri Sproul Mixers! I will be entering this in the VLVS Mary Vogel Lozniak Link Up Bloghop which is going on this weekend as well which will feature creations using Mary's hand-drawn images pressed to rubber. CLICK HERE to visit that hop!

A "GREEN" CRAFTED Mini PurseBook for
Leslie Rahye's Earth Day Bloghop

Welcome to the studio of SalonD'Arte! We are so excited to be participating in this special "Earth Day" Bloghop. The project we are sharing is very special - a mini purse book.

This is made from a recycled paper ribbon spool - transformed into this super GIRLIE mini purse. It's hand stamped and collaged with patterned paper and all gussied up with ribbons and bows to house a circular accordion mini book for messages and photos inside.

An empty paper ribbon spool beautifully transformed to a PINK and "GREEN" CRAFTED Mini Paper PurseBook. Would be so adorable with the addition of a small mirror.

ALSO - there is BLOG CANDY on this stop of the hop to be won. The prize is a set of four (4) handmade cards from my shop SalonD'Arte featuring reproductions of original artwork. TO ENTER please leave a comment and let us know about a greencrafting project you have made. If you leave your email please make sure it's spelled out {yourname at webdomain dot com}.

Thanks so much for visiting! Please scroll down to the squares below and click on them to visit all of the Go-Green Artists on the bloghop. Hope you have a wonderful Earth Day - THINK GREEN!


On May 5th I will be having my online "LIVE" debut on the Odd Show National Scrapbook Day Live Extravaganza.

Prize will be shipped internationally. Click HERE to get your tickets before they are gone!

New work at SalonDArte...

Hello web-wide-world! I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year now that the holiday dust has settled. I for one had a whirlwind three months that just ended with attending CHA {craft and hobby association} Trade show in Anaheim, CA. My work was on display for a product called Amazing Mold Putty by Alumilite Corp. Needless to say...between all the craft shows, I have been pretty busy creating...creating...and more creating for three (3) design teams that I am on. I am having a lot of fun and if you want to see more of what I've been up to please CLICK HERE to visit my art blog {sbartist : painting in the dark}.

Oh - also {I almost forgot} - most importantly... this month SalonDArte is the Mayor of the "Rainbow Wishes" Boxes that go out on February 21st. Make sure you get yours...this mini book will be in your box...compliments of your Sampler Village Mayor!!!
