12 Days of Christmas- Day 12

WOOHOO...it's Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas!  It's also Christmas Eve!  Lets get to the last candy drawer box die ornament... or is it the last?


Sometimes even I can inspire me with this Holiday Trophy Antlers ornament... inspired by my own creation HERE.


The bleached wreath is awesome around the trophy antler deer.


It's hard not to ink him.


I added to the bottom this "Believe Script" metal charm and these awesome metal pine cone charms.


Mounted on the mini sheild, inked with ground espresso distress spray stain and added Iridescent Shimmer.  Perfect to catch the lights from the tree.


I believe...



SURPRISE... it's a bakers dozen and we have a bonus ornament!



Well, I may have had one more idea for an ornament.  So, why not make it.


I had plans to ink the letterpress but after I sanded them... why!  I wanted to see the wood grain, distressed paint finish and Iridescent Shimmer layered right over top.


There are some fallen pine cone charms in the corners.  They match the hues perfectly.


The mirrored star is inked with slate alcohol ink and tucked away in the corner.


I love this little glimpse of Santa from the Merriment paper pack.  All the paper used for the background is used from my scrap bin.  


Well, I do hope you enjoyed my 12 Days of Christmas ornament collection.  I wanted to share my love of my Sizzix dies (by sticking with the mini ones) my Ranger goodies and experimenting with all these fun Custom Embossing Powders.  Not to mention my idea of a festive ornament (s) for the tree.


Thanks for joining me.  I hope it put you in the festive mood. 

12 Days of Christmas

PIN it so you won't forget about it.





Have a Wonderful Holiday!

Before I go I want to play in these fun challenges...

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 …

Mixed Media Haunted Tombstone

Ohhhhh help me.... It's my favourite time of year.  Not that I needed to tell you.  I do love Halloween and all the creepy things that go bump in the night.  OK, not really I am a chicken.
I recently received some brush love from Tracy Moreau.  How excited was I... ummm BLOWN AWAY.  You will be seeing these Dynasty Brushes from me a lot!  Like all the time.  

I put my tombstone together which is an Etcetera Tag with some pieces to creep it out.  Then pulled together some Deco Art Media Paints.  YUM!

I used the Medium Flat Brush to apply the paint.  It gets in everywhere.  For the back I used a baby wipe to apply the grey.  I mean... it's the back right.

Oh ya texture paste people.

MAGICAL!  I applied a variety of browns, orange, green and black with my flat brushes.  These brushes went right over my textures and blended beautifully.  JUST AMAZING!  Add accessories... like the inky kind and die cut kind.

TA DA...


To create even more texture Baked Texture everywhere.


SHINY!

What I learned with Gel Press

LET GO...  that's all!
No really, I have never done this before and always wanted to try.  So it would be a good idea to start with... umm oh I don't know... card stock for a card background.  Nope, I went for 2 pages.  I told myself the same thing I tell in my workshops...
***WATCH MY VIDEO AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST***
"TRUST THE PROCESS"

Check out my quick video for the good stuff. 

A few good things... ok AWESOME THINGS!

Not seen in the video but I did the linen side of the media journal with collage paper and OH MY GOODNESS!

SERIOUSLY... LETTER IT goes on EVERYTHING!

A closer look at the collage tissue.

Collage Words are a perfect layer.

I used Scribble Sticks to pinpoint colours.

I can't believe I did this!

Scribble sticks are the bomb!

These 2 pages look awesome.

So what are your thoughts on my first Gel Press art journal pages.  Did I do OK?  
I love the freeing process of just smearing around paint.  I love all the layers of paint, textures with stencilling…
