KinderstampO's Christmas Hop


Welcome...need some DIY Handcrafted Ornament idea's?  Well, I do have a few on my blog for you.  OK get ready for LOTS of idea's on here.  I have started with a Tim Holtz Tag and I am finishing a TH Tag.  These I made last week for this hop.  The rest I made 13 years ago for my Christmas Tree and they still go on my tree today.

You should be arriving from Celine's Blog.  If you are just getting started then you'll want to start at KinderstampO's Blog.  I will try to keep it low on the chat since there are a lot of photo's!

Here is my TH Tag.  I particpated in the this years (my first) 12 Tags of Christmas.  I made this tag #10 for my mom with phot's of her parents.  My Grandafather passed away a year ago December 19th.  This tag she will put on her tree as I have done on mine.  To chech out this tag in more detail click HERE to see how I made it.

I added WISH using Scrable pieces, then used MS Glitter Glue as icicles.

Here I recreated ornaments using photo's of my Grandparents on their wedding day and my grandfather on his fish boat.  Very cool to use old photo's!

My grands on their wedding day!


OK here I have a selection of ornaments I made one year when my kids were teeny tiny!  I used plywood and my jigsaw to cut all these wooden ornaments.  I then painted them all and to this day they hang on my tree!

Cinnamon and glue arnament, painted and tied with a bow.

I layered this mitt and added a wooden button.

Stocking with Heart

I also tried some modeling clay.

Christmas Tree

This Santa I painted has always been my favorite!

I also made a mantle piece to match my tree ornaments.

My tree is full of handcrafted ornaments I made and my kids.  It is also full of ornaments that were gifts and now my new 12 Tags of Christmas. 



Here is my 2nd Tag I made for this Hop.  This one is Tag 9.

Again using the Scrabble pieces and a gear embossed and distressed.  The tag is stamped, embossed and distressed.


I hope you made it all the way down here to see all the ornaments.  I have made many of them over the years.  Thanks for hopping by you're now ready to head over to Pam's blog.

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 Haunted Tombstone

Ohhhhh help me.... It's my favourite time of year.  Not that I needed to tell you.  I do love Halloween and all the creepy things that go bump in the night.  OK, not really I am a chicken.
I recently received some brush love from Tracy Moreau.  How excited was I... ummm BLOWN AWAY.  You will be seeing these Dynasty Brushes from me a lot!  Like all the time.  

I put my tombstone together which is an Etcetera Tag with some pieces to creep it out.  Then pulled together some Deco Art Media Paints.  YUM!

I used the Medium Flat Brush to apply the paint.  It gets in everywhere.  For the back I used a baby wipe to apply the grey.  I mean... it's the back right.

Oh ya texture paste people.

MAGICAL!  I applied a variety of browns, orange, green and black with my flat brushes.  These brushes went right over my textures and blended beautifully.  JUST AMAZING!  Add accessories... like the inky kind and die cut kind.

TA DA...


To create even more texture Baked Texture everywhere.


SHINY!

What I learned with Gel Press

LET GO...  that's all!
No really, I have never done this before and always wanted to try.  So it would be a good idea to start with... umm oh I don't know... card stock for a card background.  Nope, I went for 2 pages.  I told myself the same thing I tell in my workshops...
***WATCH MY VIDEO AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST***
"TRUST THE PROCESS"

Check out my quick video for the good stuff. 

A few good things... ok AWESOME THINGS!

Not seen in the video but I did the linen side of the media journal with collage paper and OH MY GOODNESS!

SERIOUSLY... LETTER IT goes on EVERYTHING!

A closer look at the collage tissue.

Collage Words are a perfect layer.

I used Scribble Sticks to pinpoint colours.

I can't believe I did this!

Scribble sticks are the bomb!

These 2 pages look awesome.

So what are your thoughts on my first Gel Press art journal pages.  Did I do OK?  
I love the freeing process of just smearing around paint.  I love all the layers of paint, textures with stencilling…
