Faux Wood Vintage Tag


It's May-Hem this month for the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team creating Mixed Media Sizzix projects with DecoArt Media products.  Join and share with us your Mixed Media projects.

I am the first to admit Mixed Media isn't my strongest talent.  However, I will say the DecoArts Media products are unreal!  Check out my Faux Wood Vintage Tag using Eileen Hull's new Luggage Tag from the Vintage Travel Collection and DecoArts Media products.  

I am building my new kitchen table and benches.  So picking out maple and cherry wood got me totally inspired to make a Faux Wood Tag!  


I dug through the big box I was sent and used these amazing brown acrylics.  I also wanted to try out the Texture Sand Paste! 


Did you know a tiny drop of these vibrant acrylics can tint!  


Awhile back I asked Southern Ridge Trading Company to make me these fun wood tags!  How fun are these!!!


I used some burlap and film strip to layer a photobooth image.  I coloured the bow and collar with fossilized amber distress marker. Peeled paint for the trees.


I love how well the media acrylics blend.


The texture sand paste is amazing!  It really adds to the texture of this Faux Wood Tag!  





I'm still finding my way with mixed media, dabbling here and there.  By making it my own I was able to blend the Media Products, stencils and Sizzix dies to create something along my style!  I love how this turned out!

Be sure to pop in and see the AMAZING Mixed Media Sizzix projects the rest of the Inspiration Team has shared!  Upload and share your project!  

Thanks for stopping by! 

I snuck my challenge inspiration over to play along with Inspiration Journal.

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 Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.

Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
