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 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…
