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!

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…
