Remnant Bracelet


So, I was out and about stalking some of my favorite blogs when I came across this awesome bracelet, HERE.  I cannot tell you how excited I was to see what she had made.  I'm always looking for creative ways to use my stuff.  Check out Claudia's Blog, her bracelet and the link to the tutorial on how to make one for yourself!
 
I used Rangers Shrink Paper, Picket Fence Distress Stain, Black Stays On Ink and my Paris Memoir stamps.  I used this set because I loved my time in Paris!
 
I picked up the jewelry bits at Michaels.  I also used a "Word Band".  I textured the word band with my TH uber cool textured hammer.  A little heat with your heat gun and pliers to bend it.
The jumpers easily attach the stamps after they have shrunk.  Just be sure you punch the small hole before you shrink.  When it shrinks it is a perfect size for your jump rings.
I have been playing around with paints and I have had many failed attempts. I'm not sure if it's the paint or maybe my oven cooks to hot? I also painted picket fence on both sides and it worked.  After it's dry I stamped the back with the background stamp from Paris Memoir.  If you don't do that you'll see the image on the back, like the gentleman here.
The Vintage Balloon is not apart of the set but I LOVE it so I used it.
I also added some hardware including the Enamel Tag with the rubs.
 
 
These little label stamps are adorable.  I used my 2 Paris ones.
With a small paint brush I painted the shrunken stamps with various distress stains.
 
You can paint the sides of each image if you like.
 
Use whatever hardware you have on hand.  I added a plane and some gears.

You can use any stamps you have.  Mix them up of create a theme!  Fun for you or as a gift.

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…

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 …

TUTORIAL; Little Drummmer Boy...or Wooden Horse

I made a Christmas Drum!  I think I love this one more than myChristmas Village!  One of my "ENABLER" crafty peeps told me about a Christmas Drum she pinned on Pinterest, click HERE to see the Pin.  I fell in love!  I started collecting the goodies a couple weeks ago and finally sat down to build it yesterday.  It only took a couple hours and it was a blast to create.  Check out this beautiful Christmas Drum. I started with a teaser post on my newInstagram account.  I inked up these TH Bottle Brush trees with re-inkers!  I started with this round hat box I found at Michaels for 50% off.  I like it because it was already a vintage paper box.  Simply Stunning!  I made a line all the way around the base of the lid.  This way I know where to stop when adding the beads.  If you don't stop you won't be able to close the lid.  Don't worry, you won't see the line.  I used some twine and tape to give me an idea where the beading was going to be put.  It's a r…
