Welcome!

I am glad you chose to visit! My blog is a compilation of the many hats I find myself wearing. On any given day I may be an encourager, an instructor, or just a lady who is venting. You, dear reader, will probably identify with my triumphs and my tribulations! These snapshots fit into my Life Scrapbook I have named A. McInnis Artworks. I hope you will find something worth your while.

Mod Podging My Way Through Life...A Gallery

I have been asked several times lately, "What's up with this Mod Podge obsession of yours?" Well, sit right down and get comfortable, I'd like to show you my gallery of Mod Podged items! I think you will have fun looking at what the sealer-glue-finish can actually do. Mod Podge is produced by Plaid. It's a pretty old glue gel and comes in several finishes depending on the look you desire. I have explained under each picture below the various components involved with the production of each piece...all held together by Mod Podge (aka: Nectar of the gods!!)

Your artwork is inspiring -- makes me want to make something. My only experience with mod podge was a little project my granddaughter and I did about 12 years ago -- I had seen it in Southern Living. Tissue paper mod podged onto 3" or 4" stryofoam balls, then smudged with gold. I still have mine.

I want to come and "play" with you.....I love Mod Podge, also. Last year I bought an old lamp at a garage sale and cut out golf related pictures.....small ones, and glued to the lamp....then, covered with several coats of the "nectar".....a hunter green silk lampshade with a "hole-in-one" golf ball as the finial and it is fantastic. Your work is so interesting......thanks for showing us....loved seeing it!!

Wow...that's amazing stuff...but I think you had a little something to do with it!

I am in love with your pumpkin! Too bad it's yours...I'm trying to not think about it. =)

Beautiful beautiful work...I'm in awe...because I really just work with fabric, but what you've created is stunning. Thanks for sharing over at Studio JRU!

My goodness you are creative Angela! So many gorgeous pieces! You said you used 'printed tissue paper'... did you do the printing on it? How did you do that, I am interested in that! So happy that you joined us today! You do beautiful work!

I have been known to grab my jug of Mod Podge when I run out of the gel medium! Wonderful stuff! I loved seeing all your different pieces...the patterns in the pumpkin and Christmas tree are perfect, and I am bookmarking those for further inspiration. But, I think you could seriously put all of them together in a little tutorial booklet - just a thought!

Blessings,
Cindy

So many pretty pieces all in one swoop! I especially love your granddaughter blowing out the candle...so creative. I love mod podge. My first was a napkin covered reindeer that I still bring out every Christmas. All your work is just lovely.
