Frilly and Funkie- It's Time to Vacation

I just got back from vacation but I'm ready to go again and escape this cold and snow!  The Frilly and Funkie Team has done it again with awesome inspiration!   Get inspired and share with us your ideas of Vacation Time!
 
 I made a 3D Pocket Watch a couple weeks ago and decided to make a similar one.
 
I cut some chipboard with the wee sea horse cut out of one of them.  Love the Movers and Shaper dies!  Then I gathered a bunch of Distress Paints.
 
 
If the sponge bit on top is dry just spritz with water!

 
I blotted all my colors on my mat.  Using a sponge pick up the colors and blot on the pocket watch cuts.
 
 
With the left over paints you can ink your ribbon.

 
I blot it around here and there.

 
OMG... I love Wendy Vecchi's embossing powders.  I decided to take the plunge and get a set.  I inked my die cuts with distress paints then sprinkled the embossing powders on each cut.  The result is beautiful!


I inked the edges of all my cuts.

 
I wanted some bubbles so I spritzed with peeled paint distress marker and my bubble stencil.

 
By sprinkling a pinch of embossing powder in cornflower and fern green it helps pop my sea horses.  They end up with a great texture.

 
I used the smaller sea horse cut from the pocket watch.  I inked with shaddy shutters distress paint and a pinch of fern green embossing powder.

 
The cut out sea horse has some package plastic and frosted film attached to the back.

 
I coated the front pocket watch with clear rock candy.  You can see the green bubbles layered underneath.
 
 
The small movers and shapers sand dollar is layered behind.  Inked with antique linen distress paint and a pinch of tree branch embossing powder.

 
There's that big messy bow with the leftover distress paints.
 
 
I hope you enjoyed my vacation time inspiration!  Stop by the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog for more inspiration and share your vacation project for a chance to win some crafty goodies!

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 …

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…

An Experiment... Hit RECORD!!!

OK, super funny maybe not funny story.  
I just got these Studio Style lights for filming.  I thought... Ohhh I'll make some pages in my Media Journal and test the lighting.  Meanwhile, you get a video out of the deal.  Ya... that would have been the best if I hit "record".  UGH...  a did this whole thing too with Scribble Sticks and Paint.

Check it out!  Ranger has Mixed Media Embossing Powders that I just got.  Ya, that was cool on video if I hot record.  There was all this stenciling and powders flowing!  Oscar nominated stuff.

Dylusion Paints and Dina Wakely has new washi tape so yep that went on too.  

See the face see, see!  That's the scribble stick awesomeness!  All this dipping in water, scribbling and blending with the Dynasty Brushes.   I was all like "ya this is cool"!  No proof it was me...

Check out the Mixed Media Embossing Powder.  All close up and everything.

Layers and layers of paint, stamping, stencils, tissue.

If only there was a video…
