Rustic Holiday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Wild Whispers Blog Hop.  You should be arriving from Tori's Blog blog of so you are right on track.  If not click HERE to start at the beginning.  

I love the rustic feel to these paper designs... and I am not a paper person.  But for these I made an exception.  Combined with my dies, stamps and embellishments they create a stunning layer to my creating.

I have a few different projects I created with the Holiday Style Paper to give you some inspiration from Holiday Decor, to gift tags and a card.  Check it out!


I love this Fa La La La sign but I needed to age the galvanized metal bucket.  I was going to hang my sign from it but then I brought out my sled and well... it all looks amazing together!


I create so much I will often rip up a projects and reuse.  Some fresh distress paint, sanding and new paper is perfect.  I only use double sided paper if I can so flip it over and the perfect pattern for the Dashing Deer die layered on chipboard.


Hid the edges with some thick twine and ink the edges of the deer.  I cut the sign letters using mat board from the Block Talk XL Die, inked with candied apple distress spray stain then embossed some bling with Red Sparkle embossing Powder.


A simple Holiday Home Decor project.  A few die cuts, paper and powders and you're ready to Fa La La La La...






I hung this sign from the Rustic Sled I made a couple years ago.


It may not be on the bucket of ornaments but it looks amazing hanging from the sled.  All I need is snow!

Gift Tags

I cut the Tag and Tie for this tag and the Holiday Words #2 for Peace.  The Mini Deer is adorable in pattern paper.


A different take on the Mini Wreath tied with a Bow Tied bow.  It hangs free on this burlap gift tag.


A basket of Snowballs is up next with another tag and Mini Skate layered in more Holiday Style paper.  Check out my FOR SALE blog post for more details on the tag using the Holiday Style and how to make snowballs.



The Mini Skates are layered with the Holiday Style Card Pack for a smaller print and font.  I tucked the Mini Holiday Greens and Holiday Greens Holy behind.


A simple card... using Holiday Style


I stamped Believe using the Woodland Winter stamp in Distress Ink Pine Needles.


Also from the Woodland Winter this sentiment is big enough to spread holiday cheer!


These coordinating papers look amazing!  I added some burlap and this metal Deer Charm to continue that rustic look.


Don't forget it and Pin it!  While you're there check out my Pins.

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…
