I know it has been a long time, since I posted anything on my blog. I have been trying to get Miss Lily all healthy. She was in the hospital, and had to have 2 blood transfusions. I blogged about it on my New Blog "The Rusty Tiara Home". I imported my "Livin With Hoosiers" blog posts and comments over to the New blog. I hope you will stop by and check it out. I also started a Facebook Page for "The Rusty Tiara". I need to get 25 "likes", before Facebook will let me keep the name on Facebook. So if you could pop on over and "Like" it for me, that would be great.! I am hoping to open my ETSY store soon also. I am really hitting the ground running, I am going to really devote my time to getting my blogs going and opening my ETSY, and get it going.

Well I have been busy creating things all over my house. The house I moved into when I first moved back to Indiana, had mold and was making everyone really sick. So I have moved into a house that has twice the space and for the same price. Well with all this room, and wall space I have been trying to make the space mine.

This is one of the first projects, I used the Dress template from Stampington. I used canvas board and acrylic paints for the background of the pieces. I used pearl paint and dry brushed over the background color. Dry brushing is where you dip a dry brush into paint then wipe it off and brush it over the surface. It really gives a great effect.

So I found frames at my local Goodwill and sprayed them with flat black paint. I took the glass out and inserted the canvas board, then hung them over my closet in my bedroom. I totally love them. I love going into my closet and seeing them over the door.
They make me smile! :)
Thank You for stopping by! Please come back soon to see what I have been up to!
Have an amazing Day!

For The Love of Shoes!

I did a post about this project on my other blog. I wanted to post a bit about it on Rusty too. I found these Awesome templates at Michael's for $.99, for a package of 10. Well I didn't want to use them so I traced it out on a cereal box. They had a bunch of different shapes there for very inexpensive. I also found this fun site. Now it is to make little books for little kids to make their own stories to practice writing. I love that you can make them whatever size you want. They would make wonderful Templates. So that is exactly what I want to do with them! Here is the Link.
This is the shoe cut out of the cereal box!
I had this scrapbook paper for a while. When I was looking for paper to use for the Shoe it really hit me that this is the perfect one. It is very Lilly Pulitzer-esk I think! So I used glitter glue for the swirls and flowers. Then I used Fairy glitter for the high heel.

Then I used foam mounting tape to put it in the frame and hang it on my wall. I thought it turned out really nice. I really like working with templates. I am in the middle of working with a shoe template that i was inspired by The Wizard of Oz, is all I am going to say. I am almost done with it. So hopefully I will post it very soon.
Thank You for stopping by!
Have A Great Day! Come Back By really soon!

Chocolate Postie!

It has been awhile since my last post. Matt's job got eliminated and 140 other salaried people lost there jobs. So I moved back up to Indiana, 3 days before Christmas. It was a crazy time. I love my new house. I talk all about it on my blog Livin' With Hoosiers! I changed the name. Well I am not Livin' With Peaches anymore.

This is my Image I used. I love this Image of this little girl shoving Chocolates in her mouth! I am telling you I am right there with her! Well I had tons of Valentine Rub ons I got on Clearance from Michael's Last year. I purchased them for like 60 cents! It was a great deal. So I put the phrase "Chocolate, Just one more". I felt it was only fitting!

Thank You for stopping by! I am getting unpacked and settled and Ready to Create! So stop back by soon and see what trouble I get myself into. The plus of my new house, is that I set up a whole studio set up in my huge basement!

Have a Wonderful Day! Come back soon!

More Fun Backgrounds!

Jamie at Art-e-ology has some wonderful Images. I took this really fun egg print. I wanted it to look like someone had just thrown it on a table and put stuff ontop of it. I love looking at the stuff Jamie has. So go check out some of the fun stuff she has. I was thinking that these eggs would look amazing as a background. I also think they would look good printed off and just matted and framed.

Have A Great Day! Thanks for stopping by!
