12 Tags of Christmas; #10


Tag 10 was a lot of fun!  Although I was a little impatient and took pictures before my ornaments could dry!  I really like this tag...so much I made 2!  But if you want to see my second tag you'll have to check back on December 16-18 for Hop I am in.  It should be AMAZING!


Had to sneak my Jingle in!  If you have been following my version of the 12 Tags of Christmas then you know each tag has at least 1 jingle on it!  I cut a stem from my mini $1 store tree then layered with tinsel, ribbon and the red jingle.  All glued with hot glue.

For my version of BELIEVE I stamped and punched cork, then distressed with a little vintage photo.  I added some gold glitter glue to make it look like icicles.  My banner is hand cut TH music paper, then to get that tattered edges I punched the tips with my Martha Stewart drippy goo punch.  I could have borrowed the banner from my GF but it's the weekend...family time!

For the facets I did see the ones Tim uses.  However I picked up the pack of 48 of thin facets.  I figured I could get a lot more use out of 48 than 12 of them. 


Here's a sneak peak of my Tag 10 variation.  Check back Friday Dec 16th for the whole tag.



 

I really love this tag. Making these little ornaments was so much fun although a little finicky! If you come back on Dec 16th for the Hop I'm in you'll see how I made a tag super personal. I can see you wanting to make some too!

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…
