Shadow Box Curiosities

 
I have been busily working away on new displays for the LSS, Scrapbooker's Paradise!  Today I get to work on the Tim Holtz section!  YAY!!!  There's a few new goodies too.    I started by deconstructing this old shadow box and giving it a fresh look.  My way;)

 
The new letterpress letters are here!  The new frameworks dies and papers!
 
 
I layered foiled tape, embossed and painted.  I stamped on the Fluer de lis with the new Bird Feather stamp.  I love this one.  The picture wheel is distressed and some added film ribbon!  Did you Know; the film ribbon was given out at the 2014 Oscars in the goodie bags!
 
 
The new honeycomb FRAMEWORKS die just arrived.  It adds a great layer.  I used the new 8x8 Menagerie!
 
I filled the jar with this gauze fabric and added some rub ons.  Love the wood letterpress!
I love the window and pediments element.
Just a random box of numbers including a domino I painted.
These are the new Found Relative Portraits cards!  They are sooo cool.  I tore the ends off to fit the box then attached the torn edges to the outer box.  I gave the card a slight bend to fit.  Looks amazing!
This is my favorite one.  I stamped the random quotes script stamp onto water colour paper, vintage photo distressed ink and water coloured it.  More rubs on the ink well then I sanded it to further grunge it up.

I just love it!
 
 
Creating each box to tell it's own story!
 
I used TH Washi to wrap the edges.  I don't use washi that often but that was quick!
I kept the hardware from the old shadow box and used it for house numbers.
Pulled together this reclaimed shadow box has a new refreshed look.
If you live in the area and want to see this pop down to Scrapbooker's Paradise.

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...
