12 Tags March

It's tag time and this months tag is done.  Being so close to Easter I have bunnies on the mind so I decided to go the large Easter Elements die.
Don't forget these tags are a "Remix" so creating is twice the fun.  Click HERE for Tim's March Tag.

I love all the layers of distress crayons, gesso, spray stains and inks I got to use.  There's a Fearless metal charm at the bottom with picket fence distress crayon.

I layered the birch die for something a little more organic, tying in with the corrugated cardboard.

My "spritzing" could use some work.  But just go with it and let it evolve.

I added a metal Checkered Brad from Emerald Creeks Craft Supplies to the linen ribbon for a topper then coated some picket fence distress crayon.  I like the look.  It's fun to try new.

I used a small tiny tattered floral for the wee bow tie.  Then tucked the metal White Rabbit Charm to the side.  

You can see the foil shimmering on the corrugated tag.

It's always so fun to create these tags.  I love revisiting the techniques and combining my Sizzix dies and Ranger products.

Here's where you can find me playing

  6. Nicole, I am drooling over those metal pieces! Love your take on Tim's tag, which I found to be the most challenging yet! I guess that's why they call it a challenge! Your bright colors are there and they are beautiful paired with the birch die and the bunny! Your spritzing is like mine, so hard to get control over that spray bottle! tee hee!

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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

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...
