Like most people these days, I follow a slew of people on YouTube looking for cool projects, inspiration and even hair styles. Well, now I’ve discovered this fun-tastic DIY show called Club Chrissie. Club Chrissie, is hosted by Chrissie Miller, fashion designer, DJ and creative. In my opinion Club Chrissie is what would happen if Martha Stewart Living and Pee Wee’s Play House had a baby. You can subscribe to the iamOTHER YouTube channel to see more Club Chrissie.
In the episode below Chrissie puts a cute spin on key jewelry. I posted a quick pic of my finished piece as well. Enjoy!

My name is Tessa McSorley, and I am an artist and crafter working under the name How to Make Art. I work for myself full-time, and besides selling art, I also sell antiques and collectibles. I live with my dog, Ruby Roo, in Florida, and I love spending time with my family and friends, reading, and watching artsy movies.
What are you creatively addicted to? When did you start?
I am creatively addicted to screen printing, drawing, and painting. I have always drawn and painted, but I got introduced to screen printing in high school and have been obsessed with it ever since. I even got my college degree in Printmaking so that I could explore screen printing even further! Even years later, I am still discovering new things about the process.
What’s your inspiration?
I create because I don’t feel like myself if I don’t get to do at least one creative thing a day. I love making things, and creativity is second nature to me. I don’t know what I’d do without a creative outlet – making art keeps me sane!
Where can people find your work?
My website is TessaMcSorley.com, and my blog is at HowToMakeArt.com. I have an etsy shop here: HowtoUseArt.esty.com.
Name one thing you would like people to know about you.
I love sending my work out into the world and knowing that people enjoy the images I make!

Supplies: Dish washing liquid, acrylic paint (metallic if you like), card stock, paint brush and clear tape.
1.) Start by cutting a piece of card stock to a size of your choice. My card stock was approximately 3 in x 4 in.
2.) Once your card stock is cut, decide what message you would like to share on your scratch off – it can be stamped or drawn. You can also take this time to decorate the card stock as much as you like.
3.) After your message has been designed, cut a piece of clear tape to cover the entire scratch off area. The clear tape will make the scratch off process easy-peasy.
4.) Mix half dish washing liquid with half acrylic paint.
5.) Once the dish washing liquid and paint have been mixed, using the paint brush paint the tape strip to cover up your message.
6.) Let it dry and here’s what you will get.
Since this is such an easy DIY, you can use this idea as an invitation or a cute way to drop a note to someone .
