November's Second Joy of Crafting Show

For this second show of November, we have three fun craft projects. We start off the show with Yu Ming Zhu, the Sumi Watercolor Artist from Seattle.

In this show, Yu Ming shows us how to do watercolor painting using the sumi techniques, this time in color.

Again, he explains a lot about how to compose the design of the painting and how to achieve different looks with different brush strokes.

Our next guest was Cheryl Miyashiro with another great project for the season!

Cheryl shows us how to make a Double Slider Gift Card Holder. (We'll be posting up a project sheet soon!)

Lastly, I show you how to make a simple holder for our new treat tubes.

You can just make one or put two together! (I'll let you know when the project sheet is posted!)

Thank You for stopping by today and I hope you're having a lot of FUN with  your Holiday projects!

More from the He-art

If you've been following along, you know that I have been part of a 23 week He-art Journaling challenge. Each week we get a new theme that we need to use to create our pages with .Well, we're up to week 15! And this time it was about Sticking it to ya!

So, I created a TAPE-stry using my favorite Packing Tape transfer method. I showed you how to do this back in June. After I made my own "stickers",  I used washi tape and smash tape to stick it on the pages. This week's assignment was super fun to do!

I transferred images from magazines and catalogs. That full moon on the top is from the HMSA magazine that gets mailed to me.I love the T-shirt saying about being Fun Size! I know a lot of you can relate, LOL!

Love including the Pooh-isms from a catalog, so sweet!It's my TAPE-stry, like Carole King wrote in her famous album title song Tapestry," My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue, An everlasting vision of the ever changing view..."

In week 14, we could only use up to 2 colors, two-tone. So, I went for high contrast in black and red. Yes, I believe it...all you need is love!

In week 13, we had to choose our Lucky Number. I had already wrote about my favorite number on a prior week, so this time I wrote it up BIG. Sweet 16!

Week 12, we had to use watercolors or create a similar effect. I have been using watercolors for a lot of my pages because it's so fun to use. So, I created these pages, with two different looks.

One more photo to share. A couple of Saturdays ago, I went to the Nonstop Kakaako event to check out the grindz from all of the food trucks. Besides the food,  there was an empty store that they transferred into a huge piece of art for the people. Three walls had these sketches and there was a table of crayons. You grabbed your crayons and colored. It was fun, here's our alien that me and G colored (he had to to do the top, I could barely reach!) But remember, I'm not short, I'm  Fun Size!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get to create some He-art this week, too! Happy Crafting!
