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 stamping.  But don't press hard...let it be vintage looking.


Adorn a metal area and done in no time!


Thanks Flurry for watching over my photo session.  


Are you ready to share with us your beloved technique.  You could win a $50 gift!

  1. Gorgeous stencilled texture - one of my favourite techniques too (in fact I quite often forget that you can do anything else with stencils!). Love this beautiful collage with its fab background.

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…

I am an Influencer

Can I just say how thrilled I am!  Yep, I am pinching myself.  A few months ago I was contacted to be an AMAZON INFLUENCER.  MEEEE.... did they get the right contact info!
I am an influencer for Amazon.ca... yep Canadian!  
I am super proud of this.  You can see the Amazon banner on my side bar to the right.  
What does this means...
When you click that you will go to my  STOREFRONT
Here, I have loaded in products I use, have used and continue to use.  I simply link to other stores that already exist on Amazon.ca.  Often these are Canadian small businesses.   You can even Follow my AMAZON Storefront and see when I add new product.
What does that mean for you?
When I use product and it is available in Amazon I will link it.  You can click and purchase.  It is that easy.  
Who else do I Influence for or receive product from.   These companies provide me with product to create with to inspire you.  
*These are companies I love to create with.  This is product I love to use.*
