Halloweenies

Well, well, well... who have we here?  
Have you ever made a Diorama?  I have always wanted to make one.  I always love that 3D look and this style doesn't disappoint.  It starts with this idea of making the Branch Tree into a 3D tree. 
 
Blah, Blah, Blah... lets get to the good stuff!


Oh how I love these Halloweenies holding their pumpkins!


After they are coloured I poked out their eyes!  After all we want to see the light shine through!  Cut a graveyard and ink with distress spray stains.  Spooky!  I cut a round base for everything to sit on so I had some elevation.  Cut a hole for the lights to pop through.


Add some distress ink so you can make it look weathered with water spritzing.  Then I stamped some DEATH!  For the pumpkin I wanted something other that that glaring orange!  So I grad some tissue and stamped my own background then cut into strips.


Glue like a boss!  Add more ink once dry... why not!  Now glitter those bats!  The pumpkin I picked up at Michaels already cut.


Ohhh leaves... how I love fall leaves.  I keep my backgrounds I make just so I can cut leaves when I need them!


TWIST N' STYLE TOOL!!!  Perfect to attach bats. I cut and scored a stand for my Halloweenies.  That way I could give them a slight bend.  After the tree was installed I added LOTS of moss!  Then assemble all the pieces, bits and bobs inside.  I use hot glue.


TA DA!!!



Dark and scary!


I topped it off with a few Fall die cuts and the AWESOME broom!


Check it out... my own stamped background!


How I love all things Halloween!


I added some bones, more cut fall foliage and a pumpkin.  


Seriously loving this Gothic Gate!  I snipped this bad boy in half so it looks like your at the entrance of something sinister.



Another pumpkin tucked behind the gate.  Don't trip...


EEK... BATS!  Here's where the Twist n' Style FREAKIN' ROCKS!


The stamped tombstones look  freakish!


Lights on!  Ohhhh the leaves are falling.


Hey, lets add a candy corn tree.


OK, that's freaky!


Loving the diorama!


You can never have too much creepiness!  Thanks for creepin by!  More to come...

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…
