Sit for a Spell

Welcome, please come "Sit and read for a Spell" and join this months Eileen Hull Art for Heart Challenge creating spookiness with Graphic 45 Rare Oddities.  I always struggle working with pattern paper but I'm always up for a challenge.  Lets face it G45 Rare Oddities paper is diffidently something I can work with.  
It's not secret...I LOVE HALLOWEEN!  Let's get detailed...


I started with Eileen Hulls Train Case
...and Rare Oddities


I cut up my paper and mat board. 


Adhere with glue.


Distress with a little sanding here and there.


Lookie...Wilted Violet!


Grunge it up some more and blend in some Black Soot.


Pretty...right!


With some of my scraps I made a BIG Book for some light reading...


Come... sit for a Spell.


Add a skeleton wearing a bow tie with an ant...


then add a Rare Oddities book to read.


I created and distressed a mini Spell book for some light reading.


I added a Boneyard Skull


A few creepy crawly ants


Then my metal skull... because you can never have too many skulls.


I love the Halloween Alpha Parts inked with Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron Distress Paint.


Snapped and sitting on a pumpkin this happy Skeleton is ready for some light reading.


Be sure to join the team and play along this month for some spooky creations using Grapic 45!

  4. I LOVE this time of year - one because it is Halloween, and two, because I get to see and oggle all your fabulous Halloween makes!! This is delightful, the case looks amazing and the skeleton (I love skeletons but they are so hard to get over here) is just hilarious reading the book. Clever, funny and fabulous Nicole!! Hugs, Anne xx

  5. This is amazing! I love the way you used the G45 papers! Where do you find a little skeleton like that? I've been looking for one for a project I'm creating and can't seem find one. I also liked the skull door knocker that you added. Very awesome project.

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…
