Metalic Christmas Tag

Oh silver is so pretty at Christmas, even with some black in there. I ended up making a couple of these to give away.  These are pretty easy to make with a couple fun techniques!
 
I spray my tag with adhesive then I layered some tin foil over the tag. Now get ready to emboss with a folder over your choice.  I used this TH metal rivet one.  But snowflakes would be pretty too.  Paint some black acrylic paint and wait for it to dry.  Once dried give the tag a light sand exposing the tin foil.  I LOVE the enamel look so I coated my tag with versamark and dipped into UTEE powder.  Once its heated it looks like glass really showing off that tag. 
 
My GF picked up the TH Noel die.  I so want it.  But lucky me I get to borrow.  I ran it through grungeboard then silver paper.

 
The gears are the Movers and Shapers gears and the smallest from the Gadget Gear die.  I embossed with silver detail embossing powder, sand them a bit then added some black soot ink for a worn look.  The tinsel is an added silvery touch.
 
I attached everything with my Tiny Attacher for more metallic elements.

 
The metal gears as ornaments are a fun way to celebrate Christmas and a little different. 
 
Thanks for taking a look:)

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…
