Vintage Cutter

I'm still adding decorations to my tree.  I have been wanting to make some cookie cutter ornaments and I found these cute metal trees... only 2 left so I snapped them up.  These are pretty easy to make with just a few items needed.


Start by tracing out some paper... I used Tidings paper scraps.  I applied some Matte Medium with a brush on the inside of the cutter and coated with clear rock candy glitter for a vintage sugary look.  


That got me thinking I needed to make the outside vintage too.  For that vintage look Mirrored Platinum embossing powder is embossed to the exterior of the cookie cutter.  It tones down that shiny metal cutter.  Trim the paper, glue to the cutter and grab some embellishments.


I created a Rustic Woodland ornament with pine twine, pinecones and the trophy antlers.


Embossing the outside of the cutter has a vintage look now.


Loving the antlers and tidings paper.


The sugary inside is so pretty.


The 2nd cutter is simple and pretty.


I love the simple cream, white and silver.


I used the wee deer and mini tree for this cutter topped with a teeny mirrored star.


Hanging on the tree they will catch the light. I need to find more... 6 altogether should do it.  These are so easy and quick to make.  The cutters can be found anywhere right now and in different shapes.  Oh perhaps a star next!

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…
