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!!!!!

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
