Riveting Parts

It's time for my favourite tag of the year...OCTOBER!  To get the low down on Tim's October Remix pop over tho his blog for the how too.  I followed all the same fun techniques.  

I decided to go with the Pumpkin Parts die instead of the Monster Thinlit.  I was tempted to use the Monster... But I was stuck with the thought of making a Riveting Pumpkin!  BTW... the monster, vampire and zombie thinlits are vanishing after this year.  So get them if you don't have them.

I love the rivets and black soot technique!


I used this metal spider charm heated it up and dropped Oil Rubbed Embossing Powder to get this bronze look.  Mine was silver.


To rub the paint off I used a dry baby wipe.  It was soft enough to rub off and totally dry... in my garbage.


Love the layering


Inky, crackly layered leaf and no I did not emboss it!


I love the crazing medium and the black soot crayon!   So crackled!  My tiny attacher was acting up and didn't want to play.  Luckily I got it all working after a jammed staple.


The Twist n' Style tool is perfect for making those tendrils out of copper.


The spider gets to twist too!


The frightful ephemera is of course awesome as a background!  I added a twisted edge along the bottom too.  I didn't think I would overly like that die cut.  I was wrong!


I really, really, really love the layering of ephemera and crackle.  I need to do this more!  Thanks for creeping by.  Check out the awesome techniques to create this months tag!


Sizzix Dies used...

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 Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.

Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
