Till Death Do Us Part

A Wedding card...not too creepy?  OK maybe a little.  I went to my nieces wedding this past weekend.  It was a gorgeous day for it.  Very unlike Calgary weather.  It's fall and close to Halloween so I thought this would be a fun card to create. 
 
Behind the couple I used texture paste with the Halloween Stencil and my new Distress Spray Stains.

 
The Orante Frame die is fabulous for haunting out my card.  It can be used for any occasion but it always looks amazing for Halloween.   I covered it with black soot distress glitter.
 
 
I used a Found Relative wedding card for this...fitting.  I used my skeleton head rub for rubbing over the grooms head. 

 
I crackled the card.  I was surprised that the card peeled and I love it.  Makes it creepier.
 
 
I added a black tattered pinecone flower. 

 
The tattered pinecone flower pops over the layered leaf and greens.

 
I added a mini clip on the inside of the card.  Here I attached some cash for the bride and groom.  Our Canadian money is coloured so the $100 brown bill was a perfect colour for the card.

 
Don't you just love this font!  I cut the sentiments using the Spooktacular Decorative Strip and glued.  I made my own background paper using a stamp from the Random Quotes set. 
 
 
Thanks for checking out my wedding card.  I sure hope the couple saw the humor in it!  Really, it could have gone either way!

I love the rub on idea, and I'm sure it's there for a good reason! I can't believe the peeling happened, but you made the most of it! Looks intentional! Great card and an excellent use of the dies!

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…
