Tarnished Trophy, CC3 Challenge #2

I keep seeing the Compendium of Curiosity Challenges everywhere.  I was asked to make a going away card.  So I thought I would play along with CC3 Challenge #2, Distress Glitter!  Because I LOVE MY GLITTER!!!  And I had to make a card anyway;)
  

My wee Tutorial
 
I just got my Tarnished Trophy dies.  I didn't see me using them much and I was wrong.  I spent a little time cutting with my Vagabond.  Love that hummmmmm!
 
 
It's time to crack open all my MINI'S! 
 
 
Applying some ink.  Did you see this posted on Facebook?
 

Yep, opened another pack!
 
 
I love how I store my distress glitter!  All those pretty colours.

The mini inks are great for inking my die cuts.  I am lovin their precision inking.
 

Once the pumice stone is applied add glossy accents.
 

Then cover in distress glitter.
 
 
All my new mini's tucked away.  I'm a couple packs short...for now.
 
 
Time for some spritzing with my lattice stencil.
 
 
Pretty in pumice stone!
 
 
I LOVE the speckled stencil. 
 
 
I have been waiting to use my cargo stencil along with the mini distress tool.  So much easier to ink.
 
 
Did you know you can ink Distress Glitter!  SO AWESOME!
 
 
Using these stencils in different ways is a great way to layer.
 

I need green for my project!
 

The end result.
 
I had all these flowers made and ready to attach.  Way faster.
 
 
I glued the greenery into place.
 
 
I'm so excited to have a banner to stamp on.  REALLY EXCITED!
 
 
I was going to glitter the flower tips...but...nah!
 
 
I stamped the inside with my signature smudge at the top there!
 
 
The small tied bow is attached to the bottom because I love these bows.

  10. Nicole...your card is awesome! Love your use of the glitter but be sure not to post the actual technique on your post! That is what the book is for. :) You did a beautiful job on your background of this card. I love the colors you've used and the sweet tea roses made from Tim's Tattered Pinecone die cut. The banner is very cool at the bottom, too. Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy

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…
