WTH, I did not care for this tag. Only because I don't have any of the stencils. They aren't here yet. So, no I didn't get to fully enjoy Tim's technique:( But it's me and as you know I end up finding my way! So, I made a couple of my own stencils. OK, we can all take a moment to marvel at my crafty prowess...(snicker)
And moment over!
To make the "star" stencil I used thick acetate and ran it through the new Crescent Moon and Stars die. I know, cool right. I don't have paste either. Equal parts modge podge glue, water and flour. No, those aren't spots you're seeing in my stars. We'll get to those darn dots in a moment.
LOOK, something I do have! Sorta, I just used a Sharpie around the Chit Chat words. But hey, I'll take it! I did make some "HOMEMADE" stencils with some of the dies I own. It worked ok!
Remember, no stencils yet so I used the star burst and the dot embossing folders. I simply inked up my embossing folders and brayered them onto the tag. And that's why my stars have spots. It's not a great effect but you have to work around what you have.
I do have the butterfly stamp but I love this Vintage Hot Air Balloon!
I think if I had some of the stencils I could really have some fun. I do like the soft edges when stenciling. How'd I do? Pass or Fail????
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.
The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long. I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile. Hey, it happens. I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.
Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.
A little stamping.
I know it's not a box or cool journal. One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit. Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.
I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.
A simple card and no it's not even a journal.
I will share the video when it's all done and posted. I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month... PIN IT
