Distressing In the Bag

 
I'm a huge fan of the In the Bag die and have used it a lot!  If you like to stalk my blog you already know this;) I taught a class the other night and this was one of the fun crafty things we made.  Did you know I teach this stuff now.  Wouldn't it be fun to do an online class, build it and sell the kits!  Not sure if anyone would be into that?
 
Off track... Behold...the Bag. 
 
I stamped the compass Blueprint Travel set onto red distress paper, then cut the star part adding some Rock Candy for a subtle shimmer.  I stamped again "Enjoy the Journey" on some more red and hand cut that.  Great trick for us crooked stampers.
 
 
I stamped the compass from the Blueprint Travel stamp set, embossed with the compass folder and sanded my distress paper.  I'm addicted to this paper.  I love the Film Strip Ribbon and the nib just finishes it off.
 
I don't buy anything unless I can really use it.  When I picked up the new Mini Film/ Mini Ticket strip die I thought the film strip would be a great handle!  Love it when I'm right;p  TIP; Pre-sand your paper then cut it out. 
 
 
Thanks for coming by to see:)
 
If you need some MASCULINE FATHER'S DAY Ideas...stay tuned.  I made some pretty awesome stuff!

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…
