Dotted Boho Crosses

There are so many beautiful dotted object out there I had to give this painting technique a try.  At first I wasn't sure I had the patience, but after I got into the groove it was super relaxing.  The one thing I didn't want to do was invest in dotting tools since I wasn't quite sure this would be a long-term love for me.  I decided to make my own tools out of beads and bamboo skewers and they worked perfectly!  I will be dotting everything that doesn't move from now on.  Try new things, my sweet friends, and always Make Your Mark

Everything I used for this project here:
Americana Acrylics: Amazing Goop II Max: E6000 Plus:

Petri Dish Resin Hearts

This is the easiest project for someone who is just starting to dabble in resin.  The results are beautiful and you can use them for everything from paperweights to suncatchers.  I have a bunch hanging in my kitchen window and a few strewn across my coffee table.  The fun part of this project is that you won't know what they'll look like until you take them out of the molds.  Go bold with color and experiment with different glitters for some terrific results.  I promise you'll be pleasantly surprised!  Try something new, my sweet friends, and always Make Your Mark!
Catching the sun...
Pools of color

Just keep dripping the Marabu inks until you're satisfied
