Sundays With Lorraine

Bleeding Art Tissue Technique


Hello, my artsy friends, I hope you are enjoying a wonderful 4th of July weekend! You know my motto, Sundays were meant for relaxing, so sit back, relax, and let those creative juices flow.

It’s Not Always Easy by Summer Christiansen

Are you new to the Zentangle technique? I love how Summer incorporated Zentangle into this adorable layout. I would encourage everyone to try this type of doodling; it’s a real stress reliever and a great way to kick start your creativity.

Meditative drawing is easier than it looks. The process of creating patterned drawings by combining repetitive marks, circles, lines, and forms to create small pieces of art is a great way to clear your mind and let yourself become more focused and relaxed. I hope you’ve been inspired to give Zentangle a try. You’re gonna love it!

It’s the sentiment on this beautiful card that spoke to me and I love how Amy heat embossed the sentiment in gold on vellum. What an elegant look!

No-Sew Fabric Sachets by Audrey Pettit

Audrey had me at “No Sew.” I consider myself a pretty hard core crafter, but sewing isn’t #1 on my list; I mostly dabble in my paper crafting 😉 . When I discovered these adorable sachets on Audrey Pettit’s blog I knew you’d be inspired to make a few. Wouldn’t they make a sweet pishky to have on hand when you need a little gift? They are so cute and they smell amazing.
