12 Tags of Christmas; #9


It's the LAST day of the 12 Tags of Christmas!

But I am posting Tag 9.  What to do when you don't have the die cut Tim uses...Cricut!  Welcome to my version of Tim's Tag #9.  I have really been enjoying stamping and creating the resist tag with embossing and inking.  I think it's my favorite of all the techniques!  Here's how I made Tag 9 without the candlelight fright die.  I used my Cricut cart October 31st.  I looked at Chic and Scary too but the Oct 31'st had a better cut.

I used 2 cuts from the October 31st cart.  One was the candelabra cut at 5 1/2 inches and this awesome drippy candle cut at 3".  Then mounted the candle on the cut candelabra.  I also ran file folder through my Cricut and did the same cuts so I could mount my paper onto it for a thicker candle.

I had a sheet of this wax butcher type paper left over so I hand cut some holy leaves, punched some green snowflakes to make some leafy greens.  Hehe...now I have Festive Greenery!  I added this little silver jingle earring I got from the $1 store and attached it. 


For the tag I used Fire Brick and Forest Moss distressing Inks.  Then went over with some Walnut for a deeper look.

I used my Flourish Die I just got and since I don't have the font die I cut at 3/4" PEACE from Sophisticated.


 
Thanks for checking out my 12 Tags of Christmas.  I always appreciate your awesome feedback!  But wait...I made a 2nd tag like this.  To see this tag...a variation of it come back on Dec 16th.  I will have a couple treats to show you!  Can't wait!!!!

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…
