Jumbo Tattered Floral Framed

 
HaPpY vAlEnTiNeS dAy!
 
I need some spring! 
 
We have been in a deep freeze for almost 2 weeks.  The CHA Release of the Greenery dies have me excited to create and for the birds to come back!  So... I bought all 3!  I am not a "flower" kind of crafter.  With that said I do love all the tattered dies and the Jumbo Tattered Floral is wonderful.

 
I have one piece of spring paper from my seasonal paper stash left.  Since I love the Frosted film I decided to use it for my first cut!

 
To smooth out the creases and air pockets I used my acrylic block and scraped.  Works like a charm.

 
Just look at how big these are.  I do love projects and the size of this die is perfect for us "project" crafters!
 
 
 I wanted another layer.  With a little peeled paint and old paper stain I made quick work of this patterned paper.  Using some vintage photo ink brings out this flowers inner grunge...or mine!
 
 
The frosted film takes the ink well too.  Look at all these awesome floral bits:)

 
By heat drying the frosted film flowers they want to curl.  Layer together and insert a metal gear and brad!

 
And fast forward to my project.  I have a few of these wood picture frames.  I painted them with chalkboard paint!  This black makes the Jumbo Flower pop!

 
This flower is wonderfully big to pack a punch.  Normally I would add 3 flowers to achieve this full look to anchor the corner of the frame.

 
I also cut the greenery leaves from the big die on grunge paper.  Painted them with peeled paint and some more vintage photo ink for the grunge look.

 
I thought I would try the chalkboard technique on the frame.  So I stamped "enjoy the journey" with embossing ink, some antiquities frosted crystal and chalking.  The result isn't great but the potential is there.  This is a grainy corner of the frame and hey I tried!


These little butterflies add a burst of colour.  I just love this bright sugary look by adding the distress glitter.  A little copper wire and he's flying.
 
 
Using the chalkboard paint allows you to have some fun with the chalk.  In this case the trails left by the butterflies.


I love this photo of my family.  I always ask my kids to grin and bear it for one photo then after that they can be silly!  Now that feels springy!
 
I'll be playing this week over at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge for their stamp challenge!  Stamping on chalkboard paint!

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…
