Create a Fun House with Sizzix



So I got this idea for a fun house in the middle of the night.  Because that always makes sense!

I am celebrating the holidays with the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team.  And yes, Halloween to me is a holiday!  Here's how it went down... My cat Flurry wanted to hang out for a some cuddles and purring.  Of course it was 3:30AM.  That's when I got this idea... a Fun House with the Canister (shhhh... it's been retired) die.  


I cut mat board for the canister and spritzed with Black Soot.  Covered with Halloween Paper and then snapped my Skeleton.

Wrap up the lights and stuff to the bottom!
"Tickets Please"



A few snaps and I can pose my guy.  Check out the wall paper and photo's behind him.


A spider or 2...



Using the Alphanumeric Marquee for the glitter paper works!






Ephemera... why not



A nicely hidden battery pack for the lights.



Boo



Corrugated roof


WHAT.... CREEPY at night too!

I hope you had fun checking this Fun House Ticket Taker out!  Hanging out in this clever little Ticket Booth ready to take payment.  Now that's a different take on the Canister die!

Stop by to see what the Inspiration Team has been whipping up all month!

EAT. SLEEP. CRAFT. {repeat}

  1. Nicole, this is utterly brilliant! I am in love with it. So glad you also end up crafting at 3:30 in the morning. May I ask where the marquee letters come from?

  2. Dang girl, I dig your style! I'm glad I caught the Eilleen Hull bug a few years ago, ever since, I've been adding her dies to my collection, most of them I caught before they retired! Phew. Where did you find that little Skeleton?! I want that candy corn tree!!! I bet your daughter loves it!!!

    1. I agree, I love Eileen's dies! I caught the bug and started designing for her a few months later! I think she was tired of me stalking her!

      The skeletons are the best! I get them from Michaels.

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…
