12 Tags of 2013 {January}

January Tag #1
 
{Ohhh how I'm going to try and make ALL 12 tags this year} 
 
Last year I think I made half. I must admit, I really love this tag.  I'm a big fan of the gears and they were my first TH die I ever bought in November 2011.  Yep, I remember...sorta!
 
I had some of the stuff for the January tag, some I didn't and some I picked up. 
 
 
 
I have never stamped ribbon before.  Ummm...liked it!  I don't have the January stamp, bit I have the row of numbers from the Stampers Anonymous, Little Labels.  Love these numbers!  All the stamps are from this set.
 
I don't have the label so I simply stamped and cut out the pointy finger.  Put up your hand if you LOVE this finger stamp!  MEEEEE....!!!!!  I have it in both sizes.  I always have the Hinge Clips in my stash.
 
I just happened to have the metal findings gears.  I was looking at the clock hands, but I really didn't want them.  So I went without.  Not bad eh? 
 
 
I really love the colour combo Tim used.  I'm sure I'll be trying this again.  There are so many layers that make up any great crafty project.  I need to think more ink!
 
If you don't have all the stuff, just use what you do have.  The point is to try the techniques.  And if you want to get something...wait for the sale!  It always pays off;)

  1. Love it Nicole! I think I will do 12 tags of my own, it's my goal to craft for fun once a day! Not for deadlines or anything else! You always inspire me to craft!

  2. Cool! Good idea to make one a month and who cares if they are the same as Tim's?! It makes me think this would be a good Christmas card project that fits & ships cheaply in a #10 envie and I'm sure to be finished in time next Christmas :) Hmmm, we'll see but thanks for the inspiration!

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…
