Fall Brownstone

The falling leaves have been stunning these past weeks.  If you follow me you know I love to create for Fall. When I get to create for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine I get to make Fall projects in the spring.  Although this project didn't make it in the magazine I do get to still blog it.    

I snapped off a few photo's.  Honestly, sometimes I get lost in the creation and loose all track of time and what I should be doing!  So limited how to photo's for this post.


You need a few dwellings like the Village Brownstone, Village CottageVillage Rooftops, .  For the this rooftop I cut up a piece of oven liner and inked it with some alcohol ink.  I also used some woodgrain paper/ oven liner on the Village Dwelling and more oven liner on the other brownstone embossed with the Basket Weave texture fade.


Once it's inked I cut, layered and trimmed the rooftop.  All the dwellings have been layered in paper. I did use some of the cuts from the Village Bungalow, shutters, dormers and fence pieces.  I attached the dormers to the Brownstone.


Accessorizing is the best part!  I used these small wood dowels for the pillars, hardware and twine for a rustic look.


Adding the inked up mini woodland trees is like landscaping for a crafter.  I cut a bunch of the fence pieces on chipboard to create these yards and gates.


The Fall Foliage leaves are sprinkled about and the Basket Weave texture fade roof looks amazing!


I love all the pumpkins, trees and leaves tucked all around the Village.  


The great thing about these villages is you can create them for ever season and add on to them each year. Now... to keep my cats away from them!

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 …

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

An Experiment... Hit RECORD!!!

OK, super funny maybe not funny story.  
I just got these Studio Style lights for filming.  I thought... Ohhh I'll make some pages in my Media Journal and test the lighting.  Meanwhile, you get a video out of the deal.  Ya... that would have been the best if I hit "record".  UGH...  a did this whole thing too with Scribble Sticks and Paint.

Check it out!  Ranger has Mixed Media Embossing Powders that I just got.  Ya, that was cool on video if I hot record.  There was all this stenciling and powders flowing!  Oscar nominated stuff.

Dylusion Paints and Dina Wakely has new washi tape so yep that went on too.  

See the face see, see!  That's the scribble stick awesomeness!  All this dipping in water, scribbling and blending with the Dynasty Brushes.   I was all like "ya this is cool"!  No proof it was me...

Check out the Mixed Media Embossing Powder.  All close up and everything.

Layers and layers of paint, stamping, stencils, tissue.

If only there was a video…
