Stamping on fabric made creating an art journal page lots of fun. When creating an art journal background be sure to use lots of layers. Layers showing various colors, textures, and images make the overall layout very appealing.It would be wonderful for you to visit my home page to read more about the details in creating this vintage pattern art journal page. Leave me a comment and let me know you stopped by. I would love to visit your blog too! :) Have a groovy week!

Hello Crafty Community,
I have been busy making things for the classroom. In Science we are about to start talking about rocks. I made my own rock box and wanted to share it with you because it is kind of crafty and fun. To find out how to collect and create your own rock box, for your budding geologist, stop on by the Science Lab.

These are some "teeth" I made for the dental center. I got some plastic bottles, cut them and painted with white paint. I made teeth for different sizes so kids could sort them by size, too.
Do you have a favourite dental craft to share with us?

Regardless of a person's age, a game of "Eye Spy" can be loads of fun. This dearly loved, thrill of the hunt activity was incorporated into the making of this Artist Trading Card. Do you remember the requirements of an ATC? If not, you can find the details right here: http://www.retrodolly.net/archives/848. Has anybody tried making an ATC? If so, I'd love to see what you have created. I am currently swapping cards with other artists around the theme of the alphabet. My latest creation includes a whimsical little guy with short clues on the back of things to hunt for. You can check it out over at http://www.retrodolly.net/. Stop on over and take the "Eye Spy"challenge, it's more difficult than you think. :)
