Craft Room Organization; Part 2- Glass

Part 2; Glass Jars
 
In part 2 you'll see why I decided on a variety of glass jars to display various crafty things.  Next to my big issue with 12x12 paper storage from yesterday's post, Craft Room Oragnization; Part 1- Paper comes ribbon storage!  I really don't like this version of ribbon storage I own.  It goes with those cubes!  I don't like that some of my ribbon is too small to fit, how it unravels and how I have to take it all apart when I want one roll off!  I have found a good home for this ribbon storage option.  Just not my room. 
 
Onto glass...
 

TA DA!  I was stalking Pinterest with no clue what I wanted to do for storing my ribbon.  I ended up going with jars!  OMG I love them!  The $1 Store has a great selection and variety of jars all for $2 each.  I was looking t the Ikea assorted sizes and I saved about $60 and got more jars!
 

In these awesome short fat jars I keep my grandmothers buttons and metal parts.  The center jars hold jars.
 
 
I love my mini jars in my big jar!

 
I have taller jars and this here you'll find twine, burlap and some great ribbon! 
 
 
My husband emptied an Olive jar he thought I might like. In there are wood stamps I use for my homemade sponge blocks for my Inks. Not the pointy finger, I just like seeing that one.

 
These are my smaller jars great for Christmas and Halloween ribbon.

 
An assortment of shaped jars for more ribbon and crafty goodies.
 
 
The browns/green ribbon, more burlap and some washi tape.
 
 
These little jars have my coloured buttons and some wood pieces.
 
 
They sit in my new galvanized tin I found at Winners for $13.  But we'll come back to metal on another post!
 
I chose to go with the glass for a reason.  I love seeing my ribbon all messy and entwined with the other colours of ribbon.  They are grouped around my shelving mixed with metal and wood.  Just how I had envisioned it.  Using Glass is an elegant way to not only store but see your crafty things.

Thanks again for looking and for all your awesome comments.  Hmmm...what should I show you next?

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…
