I Scream...for Idea-Ology

Monday + Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge= FUNDAY!  
This weeks challenge is the letter "I" and what inspires you.  Now, I'm sure a lot of you are thinking HELLO...that's easy.  Ummm...not me, nope, not at all. 
 
I'm thinking, I'm thinking... ice cream, icicles, icy blues, iceberg.  Hey, I'm Canadian and apparently I think cold things.  Needless to say I felt challenged and I do like a challenge.
After days of contemplating (no, really days and days)  it hit me, Idea-Ology.  Join me and check out what the letter "I" sparks my imagination using Idea-Ology.


I've been collecting ALL the Idea-Ology Correspondence goodies of late.


 I made sure to only use the Correspondence stamp set for the whole project.  I wanted show just how far this stamp set can stretch.


I love the Airmail Paper String wrapping the box.  


I did the sides too.


I topped with a pen nib and tucked in a Index Label with the small chit chat sentiment.


Who doesn't love the Correspondence Designer Tape!  It perfectly frames the box.


Once of my favorite dies released this year is the envelope die.  There's so much you can do with this die.  I stamped then added a photobooth image.  I wrote on it too so it looks extra vintage-y.  That's a word right...vintage-y.


I made my box to the same size as the Eileen Hull XL 3D Block Cube Bank die since I don't have it...yet.  


Are you ready to share what the letter "I" inspires in you?  I know I could use some idea's.  Share with us at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.

There will be a one random draw for a chance to win $50 with Simon Says Stamps


Thank you for taking  the time to pop in.  If you leave a comment I'll share some smoke salmon with you? 

Can I sneak this into some of my favorite challenges!!!

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 …

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…

Mixed Media Canvas Facebook Live

I was excited to be on Creative Scrapbooker Magazine's Facebook Page doing my first Facebook Live!  I created this canvas page with Prima paints and Stampers Anonymous stamps and stencils.  Oh and a fun napkin technique ;)  


Valentines is just around the corner.

Make sure to check out the video HERE on how I created this mixed media piece.
