Creative Chemistry 102- Day Five

Last Day of Creative Chemistry 102 the effects of embossing!
 
OK, defiantly learned some new fun techniques here.  Although, it would have helped to have the right product on a couple of the techniques.  So I will be having a do over.  But hey, such is life.  The chalkboard technique is one I was really excited to try.  Happily, the Antiquities Frosted embossing powder is arriving tomorrow so I will redo my tag.  I do have a "what not to do" tag.
 
First up is the distress embossing powder.  I have never used this and it is really cool.  Just like sand paper.  The snowman you can't tell from the photo, but it's embossed with sticky powder and distress rocky candy glitter.  LOVE!   Oh and lastly... it would help if I could find gold leafing with sticky embossing powder.  When I find some I'll redo it.
 
The Shabby Chic technique is so great!  I loved rubbing the paint off.  The window is done with the tarnished silver technique.  I really love all the embossed layers.  What a cool way to create metal!  And now for the chalkboard technique...FAIL!  You can see here what not to do.  Clear embossing powder does not work...period!
Now that I'm a graduate I can play!

  1. Nicole, I found the gold leafing at Michael's. They had it in both the sheets and the loose flakes like he shows, but the packet of the flakes are double the price of the sheets, so I opted for the sheets of leafing and worked with that instead. In our store, I found it on the side wall over by the jewellry and beads with other leafing products, like the foil pens etc. :)

  2. Great techniques Nicole :)
    I still haven't taken the 101 course.
    As for the embossing foil, I have some from many moons ago..before we even heard of Tim Holtz…was there a time we didn't create with his products, lol.

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...
