Something is Amiss...

Sometimes things just don't add up! Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!  I hope you have your green on today!  We are half way through the Go Green, Art with Heart Challenge!  The Inspiration Team has a new bunch of creations to get you thinking GREEN! 
 
To inspire your green creations I have whipped up the Bird Crazy ATB! All while keeping it Green!  Yep, that's some Cracked Pistachio I used!  WOOHOO!!!!


Lookie...brand new Extended Platforms.  Now I have "proper" plates for my Square Box!


I just got these Bird Crazy stamps last week!  I have been waiting patiently to play!  I stamped them all on watercolor paper.  SO EXCITED!!!!


Time to watercolour these little guys with distress markers shabby shutters, peeled paint and cracked pistachio.  


Something is Amiss here... I attached this wee $1 Store nest on the top with green eggs keeping with the green theme.  I added a blue egg for these puzzled parents and inquisitive onlooker.  


HAHA... This Correspondence stamp is too funny attached with a mini clip.


I'd say this one is worried seeing this blue egg!


The rest of the Bird Crazy birds are tucked around the ATB.  I colored the "special delivery" stamp with more cracked pistachio and edge with peeled paint distress ink.


This little guy is tucked around the corner and has no clue what's up!


On the opposite side always the worrier.  


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you like my birds...they kill me!

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 …

It's a Wrap

It's here... finally the Book Club 2 is releasing this month.  The Inspiration Team is sharing their Book Club 2 projects all month long to inspire you.  We are so excited to share the projects we made for Creativation.  This new release is perfect for all things journaling.
I was sent patent leather in blue.  I threaded some white elastic and through the Wrap Journal and added a wee patch of Velcro.  I decided to put the shiny side  and the more muted blue on the outside for a suede look.

I picked up this little note book at the $1 store and it's a perfect fit.  I added the 

Look... Journaling Words.


I even stamped the Wrap Journal on the outside.





Throw in a couple pages.


A few pockets...

Get ready to travel.

 Finally so excited to share this Wrap Journal I have been holding on to for 6 months.  I love this new Journal and it's a great addition to your journals.  Be sure to check out all the new accessory cuts to deck out your journaling.

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...
