Wish

 I have been patiently waiting for the Layered Snowflake to arrive so I could make this months tag. I felt like it was taking forever! I knew I wasn't going to use my layered leaf.  Thanksgiving is over...Halloween is over and there is snow on the ground! That calls for a snowflake!
 
I love this big textured snowflake for November's tag.  I love the torn cardboard!  It feels grungy!
 
 
I did all the inking and embossing for the layered snowflake.  I have everything except the transfer foil *sad face* so I used brushed pewter distress paint dabbing through the speckled stencil. 

 
I cut this round thinlit label the used my Alphanumeric I just got to say WISH.  Since it wouldn't fit across the tag I had fun and placed the letters like you see.  I actually prefer it like this.
 
*the letters became magnetized and were dancing around my platform...weird*

 
Along the bottom of my tag I cut and distress glittered clear rock candy the snow flurries cut.  Then attached with some tinsel twine.  I attached a snowflake charm with a little added picket fence distress paint.

 
 I love all the blues and texture.

 
I attached a Christmas Word Band along the top with my tiny attacher and tinsel twine. 

 
There, short and sweet...like me. 
 
Thanks for checking out my 12 Tags of 2014 November Tag.
 
Be sure to play along.  You don't have to have all the same goodies...you just have to be inspired.

  5. Well, you sure were inspired! This is gorgeous, Nicole! A great spin on Tim's tag! this is just perfect, and I love all the snowy details! Love! Great idea to use the stencil with brushed pewter. Sure beats spilling the entire bottle all over your work table like I did! I had silver hands for a week!

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…
