SMS Release...ALL CANADIAN



Ohhhh Canada... EH!
 
Scrappy Moms Stamps new release is definitely close to my heart.  Being the only Canadian DT member on the SMS team I have really enjoyed seeing my fellow members wonder what is a double double and is a toque a beanie. 
 
I am profoundly proud to share with you the new "Proudly Canadian"stamp set.  I picked up GO CANADA GO cart for this set. Cut at 4" this Canadian Flag is set over some Canadian paper.  I popped up the maple leaf and layered the phrase at 1 1/2".  One of my favorite sayings.


I grabbed this cute Maple Leaf ribbon at Michaels a few weeks ago.  So many Male Leaves...

From the new SMS Proudly Canadian set this sentiment has to be my favorite. It really does say a lot about my Country:0)

Adding some scrap DP, a border edge and some ribbon I spruced up the inside of the card.

Click HERE to get your hands on this awesome set.  Go quick and you can have it in time for CANADA DAY!


Mom's Diner



I am a proud Canadian, so much so that I even named my blog after my country. So being on a DT that honors my fellow Canadian's and all our quirky sayings is so exciting.  Watch for more projects using these sets in the coming week.

The DT did a fabulous job creating projects to inspire.  Please check out thier creations HERE and leave them some love as they tried to understand us Crazy Canucks and our way of life.

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…
