Faux Wood Vintage Tag


It's May-Hem this month for the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team creating Mixed Media Sizzix projects with DecoArt Media products.  Join and share with us your Mixed Media projects.

I am the first to admit Mixed Media isn't my strongest talent.  However, I will say the DecoArts Media products are unreal!  Check out my Faux Wood Vintage Tag using Eileen Hull's new Luggage Tag from the Vintage Travel Collection and DecoArts Media products.  

I am building my new kitchen table and benches.  So picking out maple and cherry wood got me totally inspired to make a Faux Wood Tag!  


I dug through the big box I was sent and used these amazing brown acrylics.  I also wanted to try out the Texture Sand Paste! 


Did you know a tiny drop of these vibrant acrylics can tint!  


Awhile back I asked Southern Ridge Trading Company to make me these fun wood tags!  How fun are these!!!


I used some burlap and film strip to layer a photobooth image.  I coloured the bow and collar with fossilized amber distress marker. Peeled paint for the trees.


I love how well the media acrylics blend.


The texture sand paste is amazing!  It really adds to the texture of this Faux Wood Tag!  





I'm still finding my way with mixed media, dabbling here and there.  By making it my own I was able to blend the Media Products, stencils and Sizzix dies to create something along my style!  I love how this turned out!

Be sure to pop in and see the AMAZING Mixed Media Sizzix projects the rest of the Inspiration Team has shared!  Upload and share your project!  

Thanks for stopping by! 

I snuck my challenge inspiration over to play along with Inspiration Journal.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…

Ink the edges of the Sizzix Vintage Tidings with Distress Oxide Black Soot.  Add a touch of shimmer to these Sizzix Mini Holiday Greens cuts.  Apply Glue n' Seal with a paint brush to the tips of each greenery and coat with a dusting of Distress Stickles Dry Glitter Clear Rock Candy.  Start to build and layer your cuts and embellishments.
