Wander

Another adventure with new to me paper and other fun goodies.

Xyron and "Hazelwood, a collection by 1canoe2 and American Craftsare creating this week to bring some great projects your way!  I hauled out my art journal for this Hazelwood Scrapbook paper!  I must admit, creating these pages for DT commitments really gives a fun, creative and eclectic variety of pages.  I am not a big paper person so creating this way really opens my creativity.

ACK... there's even these awesome Hazelwood Cork Diecuts!

Half the fun pulling out my dies to go with the Hazelwood Scrapbook papers sent to me!  Cutting the envelope and pocket envelope with the paper and add some inking with Oxide.


I may have embellished the pocket envelope then realized I should have run it through my Creative Station.  Look at that... runs it through easily.  


I attached the envelope to the pocket envelope then ran both through the Creative Station.  I wanted to try see if I could use distress crayon on the Hazelwood Cork Diecuts.  So white gesso it is.


My pages was gessoed and scribbled some distress crayon for the background.  Add some stenciling to create some layering showing the text of the pages.


I cut up one of the Hazelwood Scrapbook papers I was sent to create some layering.  I tacked the cuts together then ran the lot through my Creative Station.  So new to me and exciting I can do this stuff!


Attach all the paper die cuts and cut outs.  Another new for me... running the Hazelwood Cork Diecuts through the Create a Sticker.  Came out beautifully.  Colour and stencil the cork cut out.


This cute little cloud is cork too!  I cut the mini airplane with chipboard and some more of the pattern paper then ran it them through the Create a Sticker.


I left one cork cut out so you can see how they come!


I love to layer the Hazelwood Scrapbook Pages, cork and die cuts.


The stencil cork Hello is perfectly subtle.


I added a little grunge to the paper accents with distress crayon black soot!


Definitely a challenge to use things I would not normally create with and make it my own.


My art journal is certainly coming a long and creating for my DT this way makes it a lot of fun for me creatively.  Check out this list below for supplies used and click the image for easy shopping!

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
