Altered Clipboard- Corkboard

Wrapping up my week of a detailed look at the elments that made up my Altered Corkboard.  For my Altered Clipboard that holds my seasonal Fall/ Halloween tag I used papers and layers of the season. 

I used Modge Podge on my $1 clipboard and trimmed the patter paper to fit.  How did I ever craft without modge podge?

To ensure a good seal I used my brayer. 

Ohhhhh love this die and I loved using it.  I cut grundge board and orange glitter paper and clued.  Usually I would grab back or grey but orange is fun!

I cut weathered clock, painted it black and coated the clock in rock candy.  Isn't the 31 pattern resist paper FUN!

It's my husbands mission to help by providing beer bottle caps.  He loves beer from all over the world so I can collect some pretty unique caps.  I picked up this charm from a charm braclet, another $1 store find.  Add a little alcohol ink and it becomes a custom fit.

To further distress my weathered clock I sanded down the the edges.

Candlelight Fright is shrunk down to this charm size candelabra measuring about an 1 1/4".  I used some alcohol inks, caramel and butterscotch to give it a yummy warm glow.  I played with my melting pot, shrink paper and Tim Holtz dies to create this charming treat.

Using the ticket die and TH stamps, HAPPY HALLOWEEN, inked and a thick layer of rock candy.  A perfect accent tucked beside the candelabra charm.  A mini vintage clip is the prefect size and fits the ticket.

I mounted a peice of wooden ruler along the bottom of the board and layered the BOO, a stamped cork peice, the candelabra and ticket. I left the strands of hot glue to give it a webbed feel.

The final thouch is clipping my tag on. 

Just incase you missed it.  My cork board all pulled together including this clipboard.

Thanks for stopping by and if you stopped by all week I hope you'll try this 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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
