The Gentleman

It's Monday and I'm not sharing my Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge post.  Well, I thought I should let you know I have decided to step down.  I love the DT and my time albeit short time with them.  I leave on the BEST of terms and I miss these lovely ladies already.  However, life happens and I have some pretty exciting things I have been working hard on.  I have so much to share...when I get the OK ;)  
Alright... onto my Tag! I wasn't sure if I would get my 12 Tags of 2015 is done for September.  It's been a hectic month getting ready for The Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine puts on every year.  I had 2 great classes and spent the day meeting amazing people and having fun!  After what seemed like days of kitting to get ready I found myself scrambling to get my tag done.  Phew... I did.

Favorite Fall Things

September is here and Fall is certainly in the air as we draw closer to the end of summer.  Feeling like some Fall crafting or Fall inspiration?  Join this month Art with Heart Challenge,Favorite Fall Things.  This month one lucky winner will win a Vintage Camper die!  EEK...I love it! It all started with a Boxed, Square die.
And some Bird Crazy birds inked and watercolored.

Even some tucked and hiding.

And some left out... poor birdy.

This one made it to the top.  

These mini pumpkins are perfect with the Tattered Pinecone.

I love this Metal Alloy Squirrel Charm embellishment inked with Alcohol ink.

 There's a tiny tattered floral piece I used for a pumpkin trendil.  I love this versatile thinlit.

The Fall Foliage Thinlits are awesome!  I cut a bunch up and layered them along the bottom with a tattered pinecone here and there.

Another Metal Squirrelis hiding in the moss and the leaves are falling from the Branched Tree.

Isn't Fall the best!  Join and share in the fun for th…

Brick and Mortar

It's a new week of challenges to share at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.  What technique do you love?  I love a lot of techniques so I can't pick just one.  I went whit what I wanted to play with at the time.  Since I love all my stuff really anything works.  In this case...texture paste!
Using texture paste adds a stunning element to your creations.  I love how it can be inked, stamped and manipulated creating a fantastic layer.

For this canvas I started with a little gesso smeared randomly.  Then some stamping and yep, texture paste and stencils.

The Ephemera is growing on me.  I am starting to use my huge stash more.

I inked the edges and layered the roses.

I was given an old photo album full of amazing people, places and random stuff all around the 1940's.  So I used my distress markers for some colour.

After the stenciled texture paste is dry you can just add distress spray stain.  Amazing colour!

I inked up a framed alpha part.

Don't forget the sides for st…
