Addicted to Snowmen

A Christmas Tag
Yep, I said it "CHRISTMAS"!  I have been madly working on Christmas stuff for the past few weeks to be ready for some company events I'll be attending.  So, if I get those done now, maybe I'll have time to make some holiday cards for my friends and family.  In the coming weeks I'll be sharing some Holiday goodies.
 
Look...my newest die, TH Winter Wonderland.  Ohhhh Ahhhh... I've only been learning all the Tim Holtz techniques for about a year.  I have been checking out past 12 Tags of Christmas posts and seeing what everyone was doing. 
 

Just had to play and I really do love snowmen.  I used that thick packaging material to emboss.  I cut it into the shape of my tag using the #8 Tag die. Then ran it through my embossing folder.


Pretty...I inked the snowman with Snow Cap dauber then added some Rock Candy crackle.  Once dry I popped a little Pumice Stone Distress ink and Broken China...or was it the Faded Jeans?  Then I stamped this from the new Christmas Cheer set with some glitter.  Cool...


I hand cut with some scrap grunge board these wee holly leaves, then applied some Stickles.


Hole punch and adhere the plastic tag over the snowman tag using brads.  Any will do.  I just happened to have some of these snowflakes left over.


I attached a clip to the ribbon and popped on this fun bell.  Jingle, jingle!

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…
