Scarf Wreath

This summer I painted my front door purple...not just any purple but kind of a Barney purple! My house is a medium denim blue color so it looks awesome together but it definitely calls for non-traditional Holiday decorating colors-a traditional red and green wreath was not going to cut it. I scoured Pinterest and pinned some ideas but I am really into a "use what I have" attitude right now so I was struggling to find anything suitable. I saw one idea that intrigued me-a woman took an old sweater and cut it up and wrapped it around a wreath form....hmmmmm......I didn't have any old sweaters( major closet purge last month) but I have a few scarves that I made during my crochet phase that are ridiculously long and hard to wear. I pulled out a brilliant turquoise one and a metal wreath form(the foam one is too thick once it's wrapped for between my doors), I simply wrapped the scarf around it,let the ends drape down and wired a few dollar store snowflakes onto the front so the scarf is still very usable someday. The color is perfect!

Gelli Print Journal

I took an online class called Monoprint Bound and learned a bunch of gelli printing techniques as well as how to create a fabulous journal with them!
This is pretty much the first creative thing I have done in close to a year...can you believe it?

I am trying something new, I have created a few tabs at the top of the page that will take you to new pages where I have some supplies for sale..dies, mixed media supplies and art journaling supplies..for now I am offering free shipping on everything( international shipping will be the absolute lowest I can do-one die can be shipped for $1.35), I can't promise it will stay that way but we'll give it a shot. Everything is BRAND NEW and in perfect condition. If you see something you like you can email me at morningsunstudio@hotmail.com and let me know-I can send you a paypal invoice or if you live local you can pay me in person with a check or cash. 
Thank you so much for your continued support.

Gelli printed card

I put together a cute thank you card using one of my gelli prints. I used a foam stamp on the wet paint then put the paper down, it pulled some layers of leftover paint underneath red-love that!

Purchasing dies

With the cost of postage sky rocketing for over seas orders I wanted to let people know that I can send one or two dies much cheaper if we do business away from Ebay- if we use Ebay I am required to use their mailing labels for shipping items so the cost is roughly $6.50 to mail one or two dies BUT if I put the same dies in a regular envelope with postage stamps it only costs $1.30..the only down side is that there is no tracking available.
If you are interested in purchasing dies this way just send me an email at morningsunstudio@hotmail.com
and tell me what dies you'd like from my Ebay store or I can special order items if you aren't in a hurry.
