Menacing Monstrosity

I had every intention of creating a Tag for this months 12 Tags of 2015 October Tag.  As I was on my way to the #10 Tag I planned on using I saw one of my 4x6 canvases and then this happened. When I create I always have an idea or I follow a technique.  I am not a planner so I go with what catches my creative fancy in that moment. 
I really like the new Sizzix Monster die so this guy had to creepy my project.  I could only pick one so this is the one I went with!  
(I want all the dies but my budget and I don't always agree)



I wanted him to be metal.  Since I don't have any metallic paper I looked at what I do have to achieve this metal look... alcohol inks!  I started by cutting my Monster with Ranger's Glossy Paper.


You can't even tell he is made out of paper.  


I love this bright Halloween Canvas using distress spray stains wilted violet, carved pumpkin and twisted citron.


On the canvas I used the Halloween stencil and texture paste after I inked. To get the colours more intense I used distress inks.  


Look at this wee brush bottle tree inked as candy corn using carved pumpkin and fossilized amber distress spray stains.  


I was planning on misting the crinkle ribbon to bleed the carved pumpkin and twisted citron...BUT... I left it ;)


More alcohol inks with botanical on the trophy I cut in half.


I inked the Toil and Trouble Alpha parts with a punch of carved pumpkin distress paint.


I decided he needed a bow tie so an alpha parts bat and spider will do.


I attached the inked up clip to the top and another spider.


The side is stamped with this saying from the Undertaker set.  Also here you can see where I cut the trophy in half.  BTW... the other half did not make it.


I offset the eyes so they look droopy! 


With the bright colours of the canvas this muted metallic monster pops!


Even though it's not a tag I plan on using it as apart of my Halloween Display.  I hope your creating something creepy!  

Happy Haunting... with some creepy challenges.

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 …

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...

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.
