I am so excited to be teaching again this year for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine at their 9th Annual Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival.  This is such a big honor to be asked back again to teach a couple of classes!  I adore my Creative Scrapbooker Magazine family!

I am teaching these 2 classes at the Calgary Event.  Check them out and the other amazing classes.  Come and learn, make a mess and shop with all the awesome vendors too.


FRIDAY SEPT 23 - 9:30AM-12:00PM

 Come and play as we make this pretty Home Decor Project!  This is a great class for beginners looking to learn how to create using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and techniques.



SATURDAY SEPT 24 - 9:30AM-12:00PM
Have you been wanting to play with Distress Crayons?  Join me and we will make a mess, scribble, smudge and distress our way through this Canvas Class!  This is a heavily technique based class that you can apply to any creative project!

GIVEAWAYS!!!!

Check it out!  I have a few signed stamp sets to giveaway.  Tim Holtz has signed these sets and Mario sent them to me so I could share the crafty fun!  I will be giving away 2 sets per class!  I am tempted to keep them but this is WAY MORE FUN!

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 …

Mixed Media Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.

Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
