November Tag- Chalk Art 
 
I'm in love!  I had to wait awhile to get my Antiquities Frosted Crystal to make this technique work.  And it was worth the wait!  What a fun technique this is and chalkboard is everywhere.  It really has such a nostalgic look.
 
I made 2 tags  (I couldn't stop chalking) because I wanted to make one with the framelits for the layered technique Tim showed us.  But, I really wanted a pop of colour.  This is where the new Assemblage Snowman was perfect.  I love snowmen!
 
 
I added the enamel tag with some alcohol ink, sail boat blue.  I added the Christmas rubs to the enamel tag.  The stamp set is Old Fashioned Christmas all chalked up.


The Assemblage Snowman is all glittery.  I stained the grungeboard with picket fence and tumbled glass.  Then adding distress glitter to everything. 


I wanted to add another layer of chalking so I cut ribbon flags, stamped and chalked.  I hung them on some tinsel. 


 I made the 2nd tag more like the technique for the November Tag.  I don't have the magnetic plate so I just lined it up.  Then adding the layers with dimensionals.  I also added a little more dimension with the hat, scarf and carrot nose.


Here's my version and Tim's side by side.



 I was really excited for this tag.  I love the nostalgic look of the chalking. This was way too much fun!

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…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…
