Going Round in Circles

I am guest blogging today over at A Vintage Journey and I'm so excited to share this Mixed Media Masculine canvas.  Here's a quick tutorial using supplies I'm sure you already have available in your craft room!


I started by adding some Magenta Nuance Powder Dyes to my canvas then blended with water and a watercolor pen.  A little heat to speed things along.
Layering circles can happen in many ways.  Here I stamped through my Splotches stencil.  I used the ring for my sticky tape to get the large circle, cap for smaller circles and the end of my pencil.  Simply dipped in distress paint.

Using black soot distress crayon on the large circle by smearing.  I stamped my image however due to the texture I decided to add some black soot by simply coloring.

It's always a good idea to add gears when creating a masculine project.  Gadget Gears #2 is coated in these vibrant Emerald Creek Embossing Powders. 


Every Man...


Love these gears in metallic embossing powders from Emerald Creek.


A clock part from Southern Ridge Trading Co. is a perfect tie.


The distress crayon black soot is great to add to the hat to help fill in the texture from the canvas.


A cap and eraser can do wonders.


Simple and Masculine.


I hope you liked my little canvas.  These techniques can be used on a card, tag, journal... anything!  Thank you for popping in :)

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 …

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
