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.

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
