Artchix and Rub on Love and Giveaway!!

The truth is...I love me my Artchix Studio supplies!! When I get a package in the mail...it's like Christmas!!


One of the pieces I was just dying to play with were these sweet natural keyholes...


I first added some Gilders Paste to the top...



Then some Gold Rub n Buff (It's the same as Gilders Paste,I just had it in front of me at the time and was to lazy to reach for the Gold Gilders)... ( :


Then I took some of my second favorite playthings...Rub-ons...Now some of you may know that I started selling these in my supply shop and I am so glad I did because everyone else seems to LOVE them too...


After I added the rub on,I cut out an image from one of the delicious Artchix Collage sheets...glued it to the back and gently hammered in some 1/16" long eyelets to the holes...


and lastly added Ice Resin to the top...for that extra...Pizazz...heehee...


Come on...admit it...these are fun and you know you want to try...
so today I am offering a sweet Giveaway with some delicious ArtChix wood artbits and some of my rub ons from the shop...


For a chance to win,just leave me a comment and I will pick a winner on Monday the 17th!!

One last treat before I go.I came across this video and I Love every single thing about it!! This artist has vision and I can see,hear,feel...every ounce of it.
Enjoy.


As Always,
thank you so much for stopping by

Well who would have thought with a little color, a rub-on and some resin would make a key hole plaque into such an adorable picture frame!!
