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!

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…
