Don't Feed the Bears

Ummm... I love camping soooo this project is right up my crafty wheel house!  I mean, flannel, bears and adventure!
Guess what... Xyron and Simple Stories are team fun and I have a awesome Journal oozing with the Cabin Fever collection!  This collection called for the new Eileen Hull Journal!  An adventure in journaling!

I needed to get cutting the paper with the Eileen Hull Sizzix Journal die. Making the cover front and back.  To make it easy and quick I ran the cuts through the Creative Station and stuck them right on!


I cut 3 pages at 8x8 and scored 4" using the cabin fever papers.  With the scraps I created smaller pages and tuck spots.  The new Stitched Circle is perfect for scraps and layering.


Inking the pages and cuts with Oxide gives it a worn look.  For the front cover I wanted an earthy rustic pop and the Armor Shield and Trophy Antlers.  It doesn't get anymore rustic than that!


The matboard shield gets some shine with Charred Gold embossing powder.  Bring it to life with layers of colour to create an aged look with distress crayons.


Run the shield through the Creative Station and then use the Disposable Sticker Maker for the Chip Quotes to attach to the front of the journal.  I use this black elastic string for the pages I found online. 


The Create a Sticker is a favourite for smaller cuts to attach.  The Cabin Fever Collection has a page of sticker.  Not usually my thing but OK, they are adorable used throughout.  I love all the sayings in this collection so I cut them ALL out.  Perfect for Journaling.


Check out ALL my Cabin Fever pages!  


See... awesome stitched circles and stickers.


Ya, Go Outside!


I made little pockets.


Loving the journaling sentiments.


Trimming, cutting and stickering.  


I put this one on the back of the journal.


I am ready to Wander.


I am out and about adventuring right now and I made this so I could add my adventure photos.  This Cabin Fever Collection is a perfect fit for me since I love to camp!

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…
