Sit for a Spell

Welcome, please come "Sit and read for a Spell" and join this months Eileen Hull Art for Heart Challenge creating spookiness with Graphic 45 Rare Oddities.  I always struggle working with pattern paper but I'm always up for a challenge.  Lets face it G45 Rare Oddities paper is diffidently something I can work with.  
It's not secret...I LOVE HALLOWEEN!  Let's get detailed...


I started with Eileen Hulls Train Case
...and Rare Oddities


I cut up my paper and mat board. 


Adhere with glue.


Distress with a little sanding here and there.


Lookie...Wilted Violet!


Grunge it up some more and blend in some Black Soot.


Pretty...right!


With some of my scraps I made a BIG Book for some light reading...


Come... sit for a Spell.


Add a skeleton wearing a bow tie with an ant...


then add a Rare Oddities book to read.


I created and distressed a mini Spell book for some light reading.


I added a Boneyard Skull


A few creepy crawly ants


Then my metal skull... because you can never have too many skulls.


I love the Halloween Alpha Parts inked with Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron Distress Paint.


Snapped and sitting on a pumpkin this happy Skeleton is ready for some light reading.


Be sure to join the team and play along this month for some spooky creations using Grapic 45!

This is delightful, the case looks amazing and the skeleton (I love skeletons but they are so hard to get over here) is just hilarious reading the book. Clever, funny and fabulous Nicole!!

  5. This is amazing! I love the way you used the G45 papers! Where do you find a little skeleton like that? I've been looking for one for a project I'm creating and can't seem find one. I also liked the skull door knocker that you added. Very awesome 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 …

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...
