SMS Spring Wobbles Tag


This weeks SMS TTC is all about Wobbles.  This is my first time using them.  Is it ok I cut them all up????

I picked up this fun Steampunk stamp set yesterday and it's all about this Steampunk Gentleman!  Also, a spring stamp I versamarked and clear embossed so it would resist the ink.  I pulled out all the colours I used for the tag and distressed and inked away!

This is how I use my inks.  This way I can see the colours and they are all ready to layer!

I stamped the gentleman in Archival black, then stamped and embossed right over him.

I used 2 mini misters, plain water on my fingers and flicked for big water drops.  Then some with a gold simmer.  I then set it with hairspray.

DOMINO'S!!!!  I used a bunny for the Seasonal TH pack, glued, sanded and inked.

I shrunk my gears with the melting pot last week.  Then inked them with some bright alcohol inks.  I also dabbed some on some white flowers. 

Once the altered domino was glued on the tag I layered it in Diamond Glaze.


I wrapped some speckled eggs and flowers together then glued. 


The Wobble is the crystal blue butterfly.  I trimmed the top on the Wobble and stuck on the butterfly.

  4. Great tag Nicole!
    I agree that bunny does look like he could be from Alice in Wonderland.
    Why am I not surprised that you cut the wobble up, teehee.

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…
