Vintage Trailer Stencil Mania

It's another Frilly and Funkie Challenge and it's all about stenciling.  I LOVE my stencils and I have about 8 of the new Tim Holtz Stencils heading to me from The Funkie Junkie Boutique!  I use stencils A LOT!  I love how they create layers with ink, paint and embossing paste.  They are great for mixed media or for just a touch of design.
For my stencil inspiration I decided to stencil the new Travel Trailer from Eileen Hull's new Sizzix Vintage Travel Collection.  I love this Vintage 3D Travel Trailer.  By adding some stenciling you can really have a blast making it your own!

To ink my Bug and Trailer I used DecoArts Media Turquoise spray and fluid acrylic paint.  However, I did link to Mermaid Lagoon as a great bold color to use.  I'm combining all my DT Goodies here...


I left a band of white so I could add some bold stenciling.  Using the Treads Stencil and black soot distress paint I added this layer of texture.


More stenciling on the roof of Travel Trailer with brushed pewter.  I used a piece of canvas to create an awning then added the Treads stencil using pumice stone distress paint.  I attached it to a "rug" using the same movers and shapers rectangle shape and the bubbles stencil.


I cut pieces of bamboo skewer to hold the awning in place.  Tucked on either side of the gear wheels  are these pretty tattered pinecone roses.  The cutout from the hitch creates the perfect vintage flare common in these trailers.


I painted this Beetle Bug with the Decoarts media fluid acrylic paint to match the travel trailer.  Then I attached my Idea-Ology numbered enamel tag.  I cut the smallest movers and shapers circle using mirrored sheet for a retro window accent.


All the different stencils create a visual party and really add to any project!



Listed below are a lot of the fun stuff I used including the Mermaid Lagoon as an alternate.  The new Vintage Travel Trailer will be releasing in May!  So, I wanted to get you thinking about this new die since it will be carried in the store!  YAY!!!!!

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...
