Wedding Invitation- Decontructed

I went to a wedding on the weekend and that means a card.  UGH...I wish I had taken a photo of the invitation because I deconstructed the card to make my card.  I thought it would be sentimental. 
 
I had my Jalopy all cut on grunge, inked with black and distressed with Walnut Stain ink.  A coat of Rock Candy crackle and this car looks old and leathery! I cut the wedding invitation (the part with all the info) and mounted the car on it.  Although, I should have jotted down the Church address, time and reception.  Oops!
 
 
I ventured out in a snowstorm to look for wee bells but couldn't find any yet.  So I tied 3 red jingle bells to the rear to simulate wedding bells.
 
 
I stamped my TH Ticket stamp then stamped again in red with this borrowed "MR &MRS" Teresa Collins stamp.

 
Cutting up more of the invitation I used my TH Pocket Envelope die cut for the card holder.  Then with the Cargo Stensil die I cut the #10, the day they were married.  Layer some acetate behind the number and then I cut the fold off.  I used my 1"circle punch for the notch.

 
The inside of the card is stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps "So Happy for You" from Mini Messages stamp set.
 
 
All opened up!

 
Friday was a very snowy cold day so it was pretty dark out.  Happily the wedding day was sunny with a fresh blanket of snow...but it was cold!

 
Sometimes taking an invitation and rebuilding it into somthing that is yours can be a fun way to gift back.  Especially, if you want to give something that is sentimental.  After all a gift card is just a gift card.  But making it into the couples wedding invitation makes it pretty special to them.

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 …

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

An Experiment... Hit RECORD!!!

OK, super funny maybe not funny story.  
I just got these Studio Style lights for filming.  I thought... Ohhh I'll make some pages in my Media Journal and test the lighting.  Meanwhile, you get a video out of the deal.  Ya... that would have been the best if I hit "record".  UGH...  a did this whole thing too with Scribble Sticks and Paint.

Check it out!  Ranger has Mixed Media Embossing Powders that I just got.  Ya, that was cool on video if I hot record.  There was all this stenciling and powders flowing!  Oscar nominated stuff.

Dylusion Paints and Dina Wakely has new washi tape so yep that went on too.  

See the face see, see!  That's the scribble stick awesomeness!  All this dipping in water, scribbling and blending with the Dynasty Brushes.   I was all like "ya this is cool"!  No proof it was me...

Layers and layers of paint, stamping, stencils, tissue.
