SMS Release and an Altered Money Tin

Altered Money Tin
 
Scrappy Moms Stamps is having a double release and I used one of them on this project!  It's my first Altered Tin and oh what fun it was.  My nieces is celebrating her Sweet 16 on Sunday and she asked for what every teen wants...MONEY!  I couldn't just hand her a card and envelope with cash.  I had to make it fun!
 
So I took this metal "Celebrate It" tin and made it into something way cooler.
 
All you need is some spray paint of your choice to change the lid colour.  Paper and ribbon would work too but I opted for paint. 
 
I used my Tim Holtz Weathered Clock die and metal frame.
 
I embossed with copper embossing powder the clock, then distressed with Black Soot Distressing Ink.  The Happy 16 is SMS Hooray for Birthdays set. 

 
Lets check out each fun folds!
 
 
From the Inside Out is perfect to start unfolding this gift!  I sued multiple stamp sets to create each layer along with dies.

 
Studio 49 for the Steampunk Man and light bulb stamped onto clear acetate.  I sealed with hairspray since I don't have Stays On ink.
 
I used Movers and Shapers Mini Jalopy, inked and crackled.  The "h & b" are cut with TH Word Play.

The balloons are tied with some new Halloween Bakers Twine, also from SMS!  The I stamped the "16" from Hooray for Birthdays set.
 
Once unfolding the layers we come to out first stash of cash tucked in this pocket I made. 

 
 "HAPPY BIRTHDAY " is stamped using From the Inside Out and the 16 is a TH stamp.
 
 
The next fold has another goodie.  This time I decorated with stamps from my Grandmother.  She was a stamp collector and my family is honoring me with thousands of stamps to craft with. 
 
 
I tied the bill to the small tag.  Then it's a quick cut to release the bounty.
 
 
My favorite fold!  I made the $20 bill into a dress and tied it to the small Movers and Shapers dress form.  To fan the fan folded bottom I attached using paper clips.  For this fold I used "sewing" embellishments including this pretty pin my GF made for me:)
 
 
 

 
I used From the Inside Out for this Altered Project.  Check out what I make using Pick of the Patch coming next week!
 
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of it or if you have any thoughts to improve on when I make another one;)

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…
