12 Tags of 2013- August

It's not a TAG, I know:)  I decided on a wall hanging for my Media Room.  But sometimes things don't turn out how we hoped.  It may not be a Tag however, I did use the same techniques and some of the same supplies.  No photo tutorial this month.  I had August Tag to get done and my daughter turns 17 next week...WOW!  So this week I am one busy Mommy!
 
 
Nope no tag but manila folders cut with the Postage Frame die works pretty awesome;) I did use Distress Stains but some different colours since I don't have the same colours Tim used.  Using the Walnut Stain and Antique Brass it warms it up a little.

OMG, I love this old Balloon and without having the ship stamp it's a perfect replacement.  Using the same colours with the Distress Paints I applied it to the metal #'s 4 1/2 and glued it on. 
 
I didn't have time to hunt out the Mask that was used.  Instead I used acetate.  With the same technique I stamped, dried, cut and glued with Glossy Accents.  I found smearing a light coat of glue with my finger worked well.
 
I piece of thick twine knotted at the ends is all it takes to hang it up...in my Craft Room!
 
 
It's not where I wanted it to go but in the end it works:)  And I like it over my Sponge Blocks:)

I made this frame a few weeks ago...well not the frame, I bought that.  But I did make all the stuff that goes in the frame.  I used the Jalopy die, rubs and various goodies to personalize our FAMILY frame above our mantle in the Media Room.  You can see how I wanted the August "Wall Hanging" near it...oh well.
 
Thanks for popping in to see.  I can't believe September Tag is next!  Are you making the 12 Tags?  If you are, leave me a comment with your link so I can see.  Hopefully while I'm bumping around Vancouver Island seeing family I will hit WIFI now and then.  Mmmm... like STARBUCKS!
 
Have a great August:)

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…
