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...

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 …

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …
