A Christmas Village Guest Spot

I'm a Guest Designer today over at Simon Says Stamps Blog! Here is a "sneak Peek" of what is posted on their blog.  Please head on over and see all 4ft of my Christmas Village.  And check out their Challenge Blogs.  I love playing along. 
 
I have always wanted to build a Christmas Village... always as in since last year.  So please take a moment and see the many dies, techniques, trees, paper and glitter I used to create my very own Christmas Village. 

 
I wanted you to see it live with the lights on.  Here's a 1 minute video. 
 
 
 
I'd like to say I was asked but really I begged;)  I wanted to thank Simon Says Stamps Blog for making room for me.  I am really honored.
 
If you like my style feel free to hang around.  While you're here check out these links...

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 …

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…

Mixed Media Canvas Facebook Live

I was excited to be on Creative Scrapbooker Magazine's Facebook Page doing my first Facebook Live!  I created this canvas page with Prima paints and Stampers Anonymous stamps and stencils.  Oh and a fun napkin technique ;)  


Valentines is just around the corner.

Make sure to check out the video HERE on how I created this mixed media piece.  
Thanks for popping by... Looking forward to creating again with Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.
