Beatles Project

One of my daughters gifts I made for her 16th Birthday is this Beatles collage.  This is an easy project although time consuming.  Especially when you load so many photo's!  You'll need wood letters, modge podge, Google and a printer!

I grabbed the photo's off Google and my daughter's Pinterest board. The B is mostly Beatles Logo's.

Paul is her favorite Beatle so he gets is own letter E.

I made the A with as many Beatles Albums as I could fit.

The T is assorted Beatles altogether!

Just like the L!  I trimmed the tumbnail images then glued them onto the wood letters.

This E has my favorite song Blackbird (makes me think of her growing up) and her favorite song Strawberries Fields Forever.

Be sure your letters are up right before you glue.  My S is not. 

After the letters are loaded with images I trimmed with my Xacto Knife.  Then sand the edges, add some ink and seal it again!

This project is created with my daughters new room in mind.  A great piece we can hang on the wall or simply stand up. 

She got all things Beatles for her Birthday.  Including a vintage record player and some Beatles records.  She was so happy hearing her beloved Fab Four on vinyl she cried.  Which got all of us in tears.  She told me it was her best day ever...ahhhhh!

Thank you to everyone that left her a Birthday wish.  She enjoyed reading them.  I'm off for a couple weeks for a family vacation.  So my blog will be quiet. 

Cheers...

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…
