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.

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 …
