SMS Release and PINWHEEL DIE!

Scrappy Moms Stamps has a brand new die to add to your collection... a PINWHEEL DIE!  There's also a new stamp set SPRING FLING!

I have to admit, I have never made a pinwheel so I was a little lost.  It only took a moment to figure out and then I realized I'M HOOKED on these pins.  I really went simple with these cards, yep, 2 in 20 minutes.  I wanted to just show off the pinwheels on their own.   


From the new Spring Fling set I used "You Blow me Away" coloured with marker.  I made a mini pennant using the corner of my square punch.

For the stick(?) I cut up a hot pink straw. 

Card number 2 (both of these are A2 size) and this time I went for a sweet St. Patrick's Day theme.  I did some faux stitching because I don't sew.  I don't do this a whole lot soooo...it's a wee be ummmmm messy:D

I popped a little sparkly clover in the center.  I used brads to hold the pinwheel together.  But the die does have a circle for the the center.  Cool....

For this Spring Fling sentiment I coloured "Whirl Away the Day".  It was a bright day here so since the pennet is "flowing" it was bright on one side.

Here you see I have both cards together and they have been sent to their new homes.  My 2 crafty girlfriends have been sharing a lot of their goodies with me of late.  I returned their dies and embossing folders with these Thank You cards.  Always a good idea to suck up when you can!

Oh lookie at this Pinwheel Die!

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…
