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. ;)

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
