The Baron

Just a quick note before the tag.  I have updated my blog name to Nicole Wright Designs.  It's still me... but under a new name.  OK onto the fun!

Who's done their August Tag?  So...if you don't have the Thinlit dies Tim used yet...GET THEM!  I am sure creating the background would be way easier.  I did mange though with the Alphanumeric dies but it does take time.  With that said I loved creating this background.  

Meet Sir Baron Beaknfly Esquire.  

Inspired by Count Pekula and Lord Wampyr by two of my favorite bloggers and their amazing August Tags.  I had to get in on the action.  

I love adding the words and inking, smudging with my distress markers.


I went for a bit of a British theme.  A nod to my lovely blogger peeps across the pond.  Using British words like Fortnight, Mate, Esquire and Cheers for my background.


I love the new Crazy Things accessories set to go with my Bird Crazy stamps.  There would be no Sir Baron Beaknfly Esquire without this set.  Just sayin'  I added a tiny tattered floral to his dapper hat!  

I cut the the glasses out, trimmed one side and added it as a monocle then filled with glossy accents.


I coloured my Baron Beaknfly with the new distress marker blueprint sketch, stormy sky and hickory smoke.  Then I used my watercolor pen to blend,  Oh...and this is normal white cardstock called Candlelight.  

Check out the new spot to get your Ranger stuff in Canada...and other goodies.  Emerald Creek Craft Supplies is still building and adding goodies so patients is a must for the moment.


I love the grunge!


I used some slate alcohol ink on the mirrored star and wee clock I had on hand.  


I'm so excited to have my own Baron in the house.  Being inspired by so many creative people is so fun!

I'm always excited to share and support local business.  Check out Emerald Creek Craft Supplies  Online Store and follow them as they grow.  They are on Facebook too.

  3. Ha, ha, ha Nicole, Sir Baron is just such a hoot! I just love the star on his bow tie and the flower on his hat (wish Tim would design a monocle stamp now, it would look perfect....). I also love how you incorporated all those British words, such a clever idea. He is totally brilliant! Cheers for the mention too. Big hugs, Anne xx

  6. Super cute Nicole! Gosh, this one makes me want to get back into tags again. LOL I'm hoping that tomorrow I'll be able to set aside some time to do some inking, painting, getting crafty. I think I might have to pull out my birdies! I do have them already. ;)

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 …

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 …

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…
