Art with Heart Challenge- Go Green

It's a new month and new theme for the Art with Heart Challenge.  This month is all about Going Green.  So get Going Green, create and share!  You'll get a month to play and there's always a great giveaway!
 
For this months challenge I decided to build a Windmill.  While I was waiting for the clear rock candy crackle paint to dry on another project I was looking at my Project to Love from last month.  I thought that would make a great Windmill!
 
I started with the Cookie Box die and double stacked it.  With the middle box from the block/cubes die perched on top and some feathers.
 
 
For the cookie box die I layered and embossed the textured impressions sunburst from the Sunburst and Waffle folder.

 
The box topper has the Waffle embossed.  I added these tattered pinecone roses for a splash of green!

 
For the "door" I used one of the hinges that is cut from the cookie box.  To stack these you need to cut 2 times but you only need one hinge.  I embossed again with the waffle folder and distressed.  A little hardware for the handle.

 
I tucked some more green and another flower at the bottom wrapped in the mini rosette.

 
I cut the feathers in watercolor paper from the Writing Desk die.  I attached them to some wooden skewers and finished off with a mini rosette and gumdrop inked with meadow alcohol ink.
 
 
Something a little different for the Cookie Box die.  Expand you creativity when using these dies and you may find yourself somewhere you never thought you would end up!
 
Watch for more from the awesome Inspiration Team over at Art with Heart!

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 …

It's a Wrap

It's here... finally the Book Club 2 is releasing this month.  The Inspiration Team is sharing their Book Club 2 projects all month long to inspire you.  We are so excited to share the projects we made for Creativation.  This new release is perfect for all things journaling.
I was sent patent leather in blue.  I threaded some white elastic and through the Wrap Journal and added a wee patch of Velcro.  I decided to put the shiny side  and the more muted blue on the outside for a suede look.

I picked up this little note book at the $1 store and it's a perfect fit.  I added the 

Look... Journaling Words.


I even stamped the Wrap Journal on the outside.





Throw in a couple pages.


A few pockets...

Get ready to travel.

 Finally so excited to share this Wrap Journal I have been holding on to for 6 months.  I love this new Journal and it's a great addition to your journals.  Be sure to check out all the new accessory cuts to deck out your journaling.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
