Fall Expedition

It's the first day of Fall!
I just got all my Sizzix dies to play with and I went for the Dashing Deer first knowing I was somehow going to create a fall project.  Well I usually have some idea of what I may create.  This one needed lots of leaves and burlap.  
Onto the fun!

I decided to layer up the antlers with the mat board cut 2 times and a layer of Sizzix Leather Paper.  I cut the head and upper body of the new Dashing Deer with some scrap Core paper.  For the leaves I made my own paper using watercolor paper and spray stains peeled paint, carved pumpkin and fossilized amber.  Spritz and spray.


Now that the paper is dry I can cut leaves using Layered Leaf and Tattered Leaves.  


I used the texture fade for the layered leaf and also ran my tattered leaves through my Vagabond.


For added texture I love cutting burlap!  I used the wood plank from the Ink Splats & Wood Planks Set texture fade for another layer of texture.  I inked the burlap and burlap ribbon then stamped the Halloween Silhouettes with Archival Jet Black.  Then add whatever embellishments you want.


I attached everything onto a burlap panel.  I used distress crayon peeled paint for the wordband and token.  Inked up the FALL Letterpress blocks and tucked a mini pumpkin on the stamped burlap bow.


I love all the fall leaves.  The NEW Mini Holiday Greens are AMAZING.  


I wrapped the panel with jute and have hung it up in my breakfast nook.  


I love creating for the Fall Season!  Check out all the latest fun dies HERE.

  4. Just so beautiful! I found this on the Tim Holtz Addict Facebook page! I love fall leaves! I was wondering if you could answer this question I've had for years now. What is the difference between distress stain and distress spray? It is just the bottle top but the contents are the same? Is one more diluted than the other? And could you just make your own spray with reinker and water? Thanks so much for sharing how you made this?

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…
