Skirtin' Around- Wedding Tag

As with any purchase I make I ask my myself how versatile will this be?  Unless I can think up multiple uses I won't get it.  Certainly the Grass die (Tapered Fringe) fit this for me.  I really like it...so now to challenge myself on how to use it.
 
What to do with this grass die? Make it a WEDDING DRESS!  Shut the Front Door...layers of tissue cut with this die makes for a great dress.  Oh those middle of the night inspirations!

But first, the tag.  I sprayed my tag with Adhesive and glued some heavy duty tin foil.  Then embossed with the new French Script folder.  I painted gold, sanded then heat some UTEE.  Seriously, so pretty!


I cut and layered tissue with Tapered Fringe, starting at the bottom of the Sewing Room Dress Form die.  I also glued the matching tissue to the dress form.  I'm going for a monochromatic look here.


To achieve a "bust" I simply glued a little cotton then folded the tissue over it.  I tied and glued the gold bow, then hot glued this old metal button of my grandmother's.


Layering the 2 small Tattered Floral flowers cut with Oven Liner.  I embossed and inked the larger flowers, layering 3x.  Curl the tips for a fluffy look.


I cut a little banner and stamped "Always & Forever" from TH Simple Sayings, attaching with the Tiny Attacher.  Along the bottom is some Tinsel, heated and inked with more gold paint.

 
This Wedding Tag is a challenge for me to find a new way to use my new Grass die (Tapered Fringe;)  I might attach the tag to a card or simply drape it over my favourite bottle of
French Wine as a wedding gift:o)
 
I would like to know your thoughts on what you would use the Grass die for?

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...
