Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

I can’t get enough of Alisa Burke

Alisa oozes with creativity…it seeps out of her pours.  I am so inspired by her and love to try out her latest projects.  See if you do too!

Below are photo’s that I altered with watercolors, intense pencils, and markers.

And these are Alisa’s  “bug rocks”  I decided to add numbers because my granddaughter already loves to count! (and she’s only 2)

I wanted a place to store them and so I took a discarded “Melissa & Doug” box (it had housed stamps and stamp pads…which led me to my next project by the way, more on that later! )  and painted it.

I  stamped it with Alisa Burke Stamp, and added a little white on some of the “petals” to give the stamp a little more dimension.

I punched out circles that I had stamped and then numbered.

The bottom of the tray is a piece of scrapbook paper.

Thank you Alisa!  My granddaughter LOVED her number bugs!!!
