Woodland Christmas Tag

Up for another Christmas Tag? 
 
I love trees...I think it's because I'm a BC girl and miss the big cedars when I lived on the coast.  And no, I don't miss the rain;)  This Woodland Christmas Tag is full of trees and holiday accents here and there. 
 
I inked the tag with TH crushed olive, peeled paint and forest moss then went over with picket fence stain for a washed look.I stamped TH Tall Trees stamp, SO LOVE THIS STAMP, then added a little glitter glue for snow.

There's my wee Movers and Shapers deer I cut on grunge board, a red pearl for the nose and the bow from the Movers and Shapers wreath covered in red Stickles.  I just love this bow!


Using mini jingles from the $1 Store I simply hot glued them into place, then more white glitter glue for snow on the tree tips.  I just got a snow pen so I'll be playing with that soon!


I cut the 25, gold glitter glue and glossy accents from the Movers and Shapers.  Attached a $1 Store gold star to the top of the tree.  Then attached this Believe charm.


Using the my new Tree Line boarder die I cut the trees in gold paper.  Attach with my Tint Attacher with a slight bend.  The deer is tucked in behind.  Then another layer of my star gold tinsel for some bling.


Watch for more Christmas Tags.  I have been a busy crafter this past month!

  4. Love your tags. I hear you about missing BC and the big trees and the mountains. Was in Nelson in July, think I've been living on the prairies too long, it was almost claustrophobic. Prince George, where I grew up, isn't quite as bad, meaning the mountains are further away and not quite as close. Have a wonderful day.

  5. Like the use of the Tim Holtz dies for the Tag. You'll need to create some Dec. 1 and after to enter into Tim Holtz's Christmas tag challenge. Like the red nose on the deer.

  6. Ooh, super tag here! Love what you have done with decorating the tree and the wonderful collection at the bottom. That tree line die cut is fabulous and I love Rudolph with his shinny nose! Beautiful background too. Super work on Tag #7!

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…
