Now that the business of voting is shared lets look at Part 5- Display Shelving!!!!
I braved the top of my desk to bring you this shot!  Impressive.  Remember my Craft Room Storage my husband and son built me last summer!  Well it was on a different wall and I decided I wanted it on this wall.  Where it's 2" to long to fit.  My loving patient husband took it apart and ripped it down to fit!  YAY!
 
 
Here is the piece he re sized for me.  Love having my Big Shot, Vagabond and shims all in one spot.
 
On the other side all my dies are separated and organized!
 
For a little added character I added these enamel numbered tags to all my shelves edges.  For me it's added character and shows my craft room isn't just for stuff.  It's a creative atmosphere.
My Birthday money stretched a long way!  These HUGE Ikea shelves are 6' long and are great for open shelving concept.  They are perfect for the look I wanted. 
 Along with the glass jars and wire baskets I can see it all!


On the top shelf I keep stuff I don't use as often but still need accessible.  Including my "seasonal" stamps.  I keep a Halloween stamp front and center.
 

At the other side of this 12' space is my "display" shelving.  I have some pieces I love and don't want tucked away.  My son bought me this shelf with his snow shoveling money.  The smaller shelf has my Creative Chemistry 101 and 102 tags and a big wire basket waiting for something to fill it.  I just picked it up today.

 
That's it for now.  I still have a new desk coming I'll be refinishing and some goodies my husband is building.  Until then this is my creative space.  I hope it gave you some creative ways to store your stuff.  Thank you for leaving me your comments.  I've been enjoying reading them and your own storage ideas.
 
One more time...

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 Haunted Tombstone

Ohhhhh help me.... It's my favourite time of year.  Not that I needed to tell you.  I do love Halloween and all the creepy things that go bump in the night.  OK, not really I am a chicken.
I recently received some brush love from Tracy Moreau.  How excited was I... ummm BLOWN AWAY.  You will be seeing these Dynasty Brushes from me a lot!  Like all the time.  

I put my tombstone together which is an Etcetera Tag with some pieces to creep it out.  Then pulled together some Deco Art Media Paints.  YUM!

I used the Medium Flat Brush to apply the paint.  It gets in everywhere.  For the back I used a baby wipe to apply the grey.  I mean... it's the back right.

Oh ya texture paste people.

MAGICAL!  I applied a variety of browns, orange, green and black with my flat brushes.  These brushes went right over my textures and blended beautifully.  JUST AMAZING!  Add accessories... like the inky kind and die cut kind.

TA DA...


To create even more texture Baked Texture everywhere.


SHINY!

What I learned with Gel Press

LET GO...  that's all!
No really, I have never done this before and always wanted to try.  So it would be a good idea to start with... umm oh I don't know... card stock for a card background.  Nope, I went for 2 pages.  I told myself the same thing I tell in my workshops...
***WATCH MY VIDEO AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST***
"TRUST THE PROCESS"

Check out my quick video for the good stuff. 

A few good things... ok AWESOME THINGS!

Not seen in the video but I did the linen side of the media journal with collage paper and OH MY GOODNESS!

SERIOUSLY... LETTER IT goes on EVERYTHING!

A closer look at the collage tissue.

Collage Words are a perfect layer.

I used Scribble Sticks to pinpoint colours.

I can't believe I did this!

Scribble sticks are the bomb!

These 2 pages look awesome.

So what are your thoughts on my first Gel Press art journal pages.  Did I do OK?  
I love the freeing process of just smearing around paint.  I love all the layers of paint, textures with stencilling…
