Basket full of Snowballs...
I am working on Holiday Decor for my front porch and I came across these easy snowballs on Pintrest.  All you need is a quick trip to the Dollar Store for a few cheap supplies.  These snowballs took me about 20 minutes and the effect is both rustic and vintage.

I picked up these 8 packs of Styrofoam balls for crafting and Epsom Salts each purchased for $1.25.  I am using a wire basket I already have on hand.  I poured the epsom salts into an old container and added about 1tsp of Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.  Coat with Modge Podge and dredge through the snowy mixture!


I set the snowballs aside to dry and started working on the tags.  I just got my hands on the new Canadian Paper Manufacture Holiday Style paper from Wild Whispers.  This set has a really rustic style and it's double sided... BONUS!  I cut the Tags and Tab die with mat board and paper.  Then I did a couple mini skates and paper with glittery skate edges.  Assemble and embellish.


Look how many there are!


I used the Stitched Oval cut with chalkboard paper so I could write my 5 cents ;)  


I tucked the tiny Enchanted Dove at the top of the tag packing the Holiday Mini Greens holy.


I used a piece of Holiday Style Card Pack for the skates.  The smaller text and images are perfect.


I love the Hanging Sign and more chalkboard paper.


The tag is clipped on with a hinge clip.



These snowballs look real.


This basket full of snowballs will be a perfect holiday decor addition to my festive porch!

Decorating doesn't have to cost a fortune.  Most of these things I already had on hand... so it cost me about $5.  Look at your stash and see what you can create.

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…
