Tricks n' Treats

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
OK, this time I mean it...last Halloween post of the year. 
 
I wanted to make one last project with my Skeletons.  I wanted to make a spooky gift for my SIL.  She loves Halloween like I love Halloween.    The Perfect Candy Holder!
 
 
 
I've been thinking about this guy holding the "HAPPY HALLOWEEN" from the Apothecary set for a couple weeks.
 

I inked it up and watercolor paper.


I Color Crackled the Pumpkin Parts.  It was a bone dry bottle.  So I added some water and poof it worked!


Here's a close up.


Some $1 Store bugs and a "happy Halloween" on the lid.


I used the Eileen Hull XL Square Box Die wrapped in the Kraft Resist Halloween Paper Stash.  Then I used some of my Distress Spray Stains.  BAM...color!  Then some Embossing Paste with the Halloween Stencil.


A bunch of bugs, leaves and flowers.


I Distress Spray Stain the inside of the box and stamped!


Fill with Candy!!!!!


I inked and distressed the Layered Leaf die and some Autumn Gatherings cuts.


This fun ATB is FULL of Tricks n' Treats!


Thanks everyone for taking one last look at my spooky goodies.  I promise, there is Christmas paper cut, stamps ready to ink and dies on the way!

I'll be playing in some spooky Challenges just before they wrap up for Halloween.  Be sure to check them out.  The Colored Crackle is for the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge #14.  The wonderful sponsor is The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

  6. "last Halloween post of the year..." I don't think I believe you, but that could just be disappointment that there's no more until next year. :( I've loved all your Halloween creative genius, but this was one of my faves. :)

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 …

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…

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.
