Foiled Wrapping

The Jingles, Santa's and Distress Glitter have taken over!
 
It's all about Christmas in my craft room these days!  I am making a lot of projects and have more planned.  I thought since I can't show you yet what I'm making I would share a peek. 
 
  These stacked presents are an element to a bigger project.  I used Eileen Hull Blocks/Cubes to create the gifts with some foiled "wrapping" paper.
 

 I cut the Bow Tied with Core Seasonal Impressions paper.  The perfect ribbon!


I sanded all the edges of my paper and seasonal impressions papers.


I double stacked the smallest of the Bow Tied bows and topped with a teeny mirrored star.


 I was cruising through my blogland as I usually do first thing and saw this adorable Burlap Panel with the mirrored stars. I LOVE the mirrored stars!


I added the biggest mirrored star to my largest gift.


I love how these stacked gifts worked out.


What did I ever do before I had my Eileen Hull Box dies???  I have so much fun creating with them!  If you don't have them they are worth getting. 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!  Watch for these foiled gifts in an upcoming project!

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…
