Fall Brownstone

The falling leaves have been stunning these past weeks.  If you follow me you know I love to create for Fall. When I get to create for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine I get to make Fall projects in the spring.  Although this project didn't make it in the magazine I do get to still blog it.    

I snapped off a few photo's.  Honestly, sometimes I get lost in the creation and loose all track of time and what I should be doing!  So limited how to photo's for this post.


You need a few dwellings like the Village Brownstone, Village CottageVillage Rooftops, .  For the this rooftop I cut up a piece of oven liner and inked it with some alcohol ink.  I also used some woodgrain paper/ oven liner on the Village Dwelling and more oven liner on the other brownstone embossed with the Basket Weave texture fade.


Once it's inked I cut, layered and trimmed the rooftop.  All the dwellings have been layered in paper. I did use some of the cuts from the Village Bungalow, shutters, dormers and fence pieces.  I attached the dormers to the Brownstone.


Accessorizing is the best part!  I used these small wood dowels for the pillars, hardware and twine for a rustic look.


Adding the inked up mini woodland trees is like landscaping for a crafter.  I cut a bunch of the fence pieces on chipboard to create these yards and gates.


The Fall Foliage leaves are sprinkled about and the Basket Weave texture fade roof looks amazing!


I love all the pumpkins, trees and leaves tucked all around the Village.  


The great thing about these villages is you can create them for ever season and add on to them each year. Now... to keep my cats away from them!

  6. I can just picture you in your studio wringing your hands and giggling with delight as you spend hours cutting, assembling, detailing and landscaping your village! How wonderful this village is, and I appreciate all the work that went into it! The devil's in those wonderful, thoughtful details! My favorite trick you pulled here is using the oven liner-genius!

    I had to laugh about your cats. Biskit has a favorite pass-time. She jumps on top of the upright freezer and pulls all the tiny leaves off a project I made a couple years ago (They are really crunchy by now), and drops them to the floor. Good luck with yours!

    Thank you, too, for sharing this at Anything But Cute. A perfect Autumn Day! Hugs! Sara Emily DT

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…
