Beatles Project

One of my daughters gifts I made for her 16th Birthday is this Beatles collage.  This is an easy project although time consuming.  Especially when you load so many photo's!  You'll need wood letters, modge podge, Google and a printer!

I grabbed the photo's off Google and my daughter's Pinterest board. The B is mostly Beatles Logo's.

Paul is her favorite Beatle so he gets is own letter E.

I made the A with as many Beatles Albums as I could fit.

The T is assorted Beatles altogether!

Just like the L!  I trimmed the tumbnail images then glued them onto the wood letters.

This E has my favorite song Blackbird (makes me think of her growing up) and her favorite song Strawberries Fields Forever.

Be sure your letters are up right before you glue.  My S is not. 

After the letters are loaded with images I trimmed with my Xacto Knife.  Then sand the edges, add some ink and seal it again!

This project is created with my daughters new room in mind.  A great piece we can hang on the wall or simply stand up. 

She got all things Beatles for her Birthday.  Including a vintage record player and some Beatles records.  She was so happy hearing her beloved Fab Four on vinyl she cried.  Which got all of us in tears.  She told me it was her best day ever...ahhhhh!

Thank you to everyone that left her a Birthday wish.  She enjoyed reading them.  I'm off for a couple weeks for a family vacation.  So my blog will be quiet. 

Cheers...

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
