Hammered Metal Bunny

Well, it's almost Easter and I wanted to make something.  I was inspired by this new embossing powder Emerald Creek Crafts Supplies just released... Hammered Metal.  So of course that means Easter!  
Or in this case Hammered Metal Bunny Bags.

I started with a bunch of my dies, movers and shapers, thinlits and magnetic plate.


I cut the bunnies out with mat board then inked with seedless preserves distress spray.  Then I added my Hammered Metal powder.  I added 2 coats of powder.


I really wanted to play with the new Hammered Metal embossing powder.  Look how yummy this is... so thick!!!



I cut the In the Bag bags using Kraft Paper then stamped with the Graph background stamp.  Check out these metal bunnies!


Once the bags are built I inked the edges with ground espresso distress ink.  The handwritten celebrate words are cut with Sizzix Watercolor pattern paper and inked with wilted violet.


I wanted to try my distress crayon seedless preserve on ribbon and see the effect.  I added a strip of colour down the center.  To get it to feather out I used a baby wipe and rubbed.


Check out how cute these are and simple.


By stamping the bag it helps break us the colour and adds a layer.


When you add 2 it gets super thick!  You can see the little pops of seedless preserves coming through.  This little guy looks almost like liquid.


Stuff with Easter treats and tie it off.


Check out Hammered Metal HERE at Emerald Creek.

I hope this quick project gives you some ideas for whipping something fun up.

Lets play...

Frilly and Funkie- Hip to be Square (bright colours)
A Vintage Journey- (Mat Board, purple, metal effect)
Anything But Cute- Crazy for Colour- (purples)
Creative Carte Blanche- Triple Trouble (metal bunny, graph stamp, sentiment)

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…
