Owl You Need is Love


Owl I had to do was post this card with my Be My Valentine post...but I forgot about it.  When I started my husbands Valentins project this little 3'x 3' card was the first thing I made.  But he quickly became buried under scraps.  Then on the morning of Valentines I remembered he hadn't made it into the first bag my husband had to open.  Oops.  I rushed down to my craft room, iPhone in hand and snapped these off quickly.  After all hubby was heading to the airport at any moment. 

Scrappy Moms Stamps has a brand new set, Owl Occasion.  What was I going to create with all these "cute" sentiments.  It was a bit of a worry until I remembered I had this stamp.  How cute is this sentiment...I'm singing the Beatles now!  I added red jewel hearts to his eyes and tied off a piece of ribbon.  The stamp is coloured in marker to get the red and black.


Ohhhh how I adore the inside.  I stamped just the top of my little Owl as if he is peeking in.  And then stamped again from Owl Occasions "Owl Miss You".  It's like he wants to make sure not to miss a thing.


With the Owl Occasions set you get this cute little Owl stamp.  I I stamped it on the back of the envelope in the red and black again. 


Sorry this never made it into the post it was meant to be in.  I had so many gifts to craft I just forgot about this one.  It's a sweet simple card.  And the inside detail is just the best.

Have a great weekend!

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Mixed Media Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.

Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
