Tarnished Trophy, CC3 Challenge #2

I keep seeing the Compendium of Curiosity Challenges everywhere.  I was asked to make a going away card.  So I thought I would play along with CC3 Challenge #2, Distress Glitter!  Because I LOVE MY GLITTER!!!  And I had to make a card anyway;)
  

My wee Tutorial
 
I just got my Tarnished Trophy dies.  I didn't see me using them much and I was wrong.  I spent a little time cutting with my Vagabond.  Love that hummmmmm!
 
 
It's time to crack open all my MINI'S! 
 
 
Applying some ink.  Did you see this posted on Facebook?
 

Yep, opened another pack!
 
 
I love how I store my distress glitter!  All those pretty colours.

The mini inks are great for inking my die cuts.  I am lovin their precision inking.
 

Once the pumice stone is applied add glossy accents.
 

Then cover in distress glitter.
 
 
All my new mini's tucked away.  I'm a couple packs short...for now.
 
 
Time for some spritzing with my lattice stencil.
 
 
Pretty in pumice stone!
 
 
I LOVE the speckled stencil. 
 
 
I have been waiting to use my cargo stencil along with the mini distress tool.  So much easier to ink.
 
 
Did you know you can ink Distress Glitter!  SO AWESOME!
 
 
Using these stencils in different ways is a great way to layer.
 

I need green for my project!
 

The end result.
 
I had all these flowers made and ready to attach.  Way faster.
 
 
I glued the greenery into place.
 
 
I'm so excited to have a banner to stamp on.  REALLY EXCITED!
 
 
I was going to glitter the flower tips...but...nah!
 
 
I stamped the inside with my signature smudge at the top there!
 
 
The small tied bow is attached to the bottom because I love these bows.

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…
