12 Tags of Christmas; #12


It's the final tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas.  It was really inspiring to make these tags and honestly when I started I had no idea I would do all 12...until I got to tag 4.  I really love as a crafter to layer with paper and goodies.  So this tag was perfect for me.

Making these paper flowers was so fun as I have never made them before.  My GF and I hit the $1 Store for TISSUE to re-create this tag.  I stamped a music note stamp to silver tissue for this tag then added an antique brad.  I attached tinsel and trimmed it then used my MS Holly punch on MS glitter paper for the layered border.

Not a big fan of the cherub that was used so I was on the hunt ($1 store) for somthis that would fit.  For $1 I picked up 2 of these prancing deer.  Now they were cold but a little spray adhesive and silver glitter and now I have a pretty deer.  Some of the gold shows through and adds a pretty look to the deer.


"ALL IS CALM" I printed on my computer and cut out then popped up.  I stamped the tag then used some white tissue, stamped this music stamp on it with Archival black then used modge posge to glue it on the tag.  The script I stampd on the tag shows through.

I didn't have the die for the layer behing the deer.  So using the lid off my Scrabble box we hand cut the image.  I then painted some acrylic blueish paint I had left over from my kids Nutcracker project. 

The light catches the glittler from the WISH, deer and ribbon I used.  I once again used my $1 Store silver jingle earrings and attached it at the bottom of the tag.  Couldn't miss adding that final jingle.







Be sure to pop in Friday for a Christmas Hop I am in.  There, I will have a couple more variations of tags I made and gave away.

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…
