Summer Tag- Corkboard Tags


Altered Corkboard Summer Tag
SUMMER IS COMING...and this is Tag #2 in my Four Seasons Tags.  The Summer Tag was my first of the 4 tags I made.  It's packed with seashells, sand, weathered wood and balloons.  I kept the theme going with the Rickety House Die and fence. This time making it look more like a planked house, stained with weathered wood and picket fence.

I made these wee balloons using Honeybomb paper found at my LSS, The Scrap Yard.  I went in for inspiration because finding "pumpkins" at this time of year isn't easy.  You'll have to check back tomorrow to see pumpkins.  Well, I found it there with the help of the owner, Lori whom also happens to be Ranger Certified!  The things I'm learning.  She got me on this Honeycomb paper and I think I'm hooked! 

  I added some tea stained cheesecloth as netting, layered some alcohol inked seashells and golden stars.  With the addition of this retro coke bottle cap, it has a summery feel.  Hmmm...I could have used a Corona cap too...

Another bottle cap, with a 1" punched out sand paper circle and layered with this inked sand dollar charm.

A little added sand paper along the bottom, crackled picket fence paint and all these breezy embellishments makes me think I can smell the ocean!

With Tag #2 down we are geared up for tag #3 Fall/ Halloween Tag tomorrow!  My favorite Tag!

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 …

NEW Make Art Blendable Dye Inks

I am so excited to be apart of the new Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Blendable Dye Ink" release.  These inks have the robust colouring of the Archivals however you can blend them!  Even combining colours to make new ones.   Ohhh delicious! 

Watch the quick video below how I blended.

Ohhhh they create stunning colours.

I even dipped my ribbon for some colour!

The butterflies are an intense rainbow of colour.

Each colour is blended over the other creating hues of other colours.

I kept the tag simple so the inks could shine with these vibrant inks.

Make Art Blending Dye Inks are a must!  Thanks for taking a look.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
