Three for One

Three for One

Hello everyone!! I apologize for the super late post, so today is a Three for One video post.

First off we have last week's "Half-Way Wednesday" Greeting Card Tutorial, which was a mermaid themed card. Funny thing was, after this was filmed I was browzing my local Dollar Tree Store and found some stickers that would have made this project much nicer, so I may be doing this project again or something Beach themed very soon. Below you will find a picture of the finished project and the attached tutorial video.

The next video was my first "Freaky Friday Vlog" were I explain some things about myself, my art, and my crafting. You can thank my Best Friend Linda for the idea.

And finally, our second "Monday Madness: Craft Tutorial" which was filmed and posted this morning features a Patriotic themed Picture Frame, in honor of the upcoming holiday of Memorial Day! Below you will find an image fallowed by the video tutorial!

Just want to send out a big thanks to all my supporters!
Keep an eye out, Half-Way Wednesday isnt to far off, I will be showing off how to make a Patriotic themed greeting card to go with that Patriotic Picture Frame!

With that,
D.L. Mannex out!

Monday Madness : Altered Notebook

Monday Madness: Altered Notebook

Hello everyone, D.L. Mannex here with a new craft to share! 

In the last Blog Post, I mentioned that because of my new equipment, I was able to make a schedule for making tutorials and posting on all of my websites. Well, here I am!

You can tell from the title of this Blog Post what day it is and a peek of what I will be showing you today. So I will start off by making a list of the things you will need for what I consider a simple craft.

~Small Notebook 
(mine was purchased at my local Dollar Tree)
~One Sheet of 12x12 Scrapbook Paper
~Glue Stick
~Hot Glue Gun
~Lace and/or Ribbon
~Random Matching Embellishments

Below you will find a picture of my finished project and just below that I have posted the Youtube Video Tutorial I filmed of the creating process.

Hope you all enjoy the video. Please feel free to subscribe to my Youtube Channel for all my upcoming videos. I also plan to have hauls and  give-aways so stay tuned!

Love you all and Thank You all for your support!

New Equipment Is Here!

New Equipment Is Here!

Hello there everyone!! D.L. Mannex here with some epic news! I have finally been able to purchase all the equipment necessary to start my new Youtube Channel. The previous one was causing a hassle due to my name not matching the email address so I decided to make a new email and attach a new Youtube Channel. I also invested in a new webcam, a Logitech 920C 1080p HD. I also invested in a semi decent microphone and a 1TB external hard drive to store all my Artwork and Crafts, and the videos I post to my new channel. Below you find the links to all of my websites, some of which are new and some are the same as before.

DeviantArt: HERE

I would also like to announce that I have made a schedule in which I hope to stick to starting next week. I have decided that all of my pages will display all of my work, including Original Works of Art and Fan Art, and my Crafts. No sence in making seperate accounts for my many different hobbies. So here is the schedule I have arranged and hope to stick to starting Monday, May 11th 2015.

Weekly Goals:
Monday: "Monday Madness:Craft Tutorial"
Wednesday: "Half-Way Wednesday:Card Tutorial"
Friday: "My Freaky Friday Vlog"

Monthly Goals:
* 2 or more Drawing/Coloring Tutorial Videos: at least 2 full drawing projects displaying my use of materials and my personal tips and tricks.
* 1 Thrifty Thursday Project: at least one thrifty project in which an item purchased at my local Thrift Stores is Altered and/or Repurposed.

General Goals:
* Provide Product Reviews
*Share Haul Videos
*Answer Questions and/or Comments from Viewers
*Supply Future Giveaways

In the end I have three simple yet not so simple goals. I wish to build a steady Fan Base that I can communicate with. To Promote not only myself, but other Artists and Crafters. And maybe someday, Pursue and Bright Financial Future with my Artwork and Crafts.

I wanted to Thank You All for youre continued support! It means alot to me, and I love you all!
