Dashing through the Snow Holiday Tag #1

I've spent the past month working really hard on bunch of holiday goodies.  And since I know you all are gearing up for some Holiday crafting there's no time like the present to start posting. 
 
This is tag is easily the simplest tag I've made but I really love it.  You can use any inks for the back ground but I used TH Forest Moss, Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive.  Blend the inks, splatter some water on the tag and finish off with some gold in the Mini Misters! 
 
I used a whole bunch of dies including the new TH Tree Line die all cut on Grunge Board, but carve up some cereal boxes works too.  I cut the Movers and Shapers Mini Jalopy and mounted the Mini Pine Tree on top.  I tied it on the Jalopy with some twine, a gold star and some white glitter glue for snow. 

 
You know how TH brings out these charms for the holiday's...well...I was too early.  But the everyday charms work too.  I stamped some snowflakes using Stampin Up Whisper White Craft Ink randomly along the top.
 
 
Rock Candy Crackle is generously applied to all my die cuts.  Then along the bottom a Small piece of cotton ball for snow.  This makes it look fluffy and light. 

 
This tag was all because I really wanted to stamp my Tall Trees stamp.  I just love this stamp. 

 
Watch for more Christmas Tags in the coming weeks.  These have all been made for upcoming Christmas Parties.  Every year I make something for the staff where my husband works to giveaway. Click HERE to see last years Gift Giveaway.
 
And watch for next week when I show the whole gift put together for the All Things Altered Winter Blog Hop!

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…
