Deco Art Quick Chalky Tins

Who doesn't love chalk paint!  I do!  Here's a quick afternoon project, simple and fun!
I recently asked to join and was accepted to join the DecoArt Blogger Outreach Program!  Basically, I come with an idea, select some product and once accepted it gets mailed to me!  Here are the Chalky Finish paints I requested.  Aren't they delicious :)


I started with these AWESOME enamel tins I found at the $1 Store for $3 each!  LOVE THEM!


A little paint goes a long way here!


I painted long strokes staying even.  These paints build so multiple thin coats are best.  I painted a few coats leaving the little lip the creamy enamel color it came with.  


I painted the little handle too.


Then with a baby wipe I took off the excess.  Dry time is quick!


I picked up a set of 3 tins.  Paint with the DecoArt Chalky Finish Paints is a beautiful subtle accent, perfect for my style!


For the black chalk paint labels I used Eileen Hull Sizzix Kitchen Labels Framelit dies.


These labels are a great fit!


I made these to store some craft room goodies.  But on a kitchen counter with sugar, coffee and tea!  OMG SO CUTE!


The painted matching handle is a subtle burst of color.


These will store on one of my shelves in my crafty space.  


If I change what's inside I simply write a new label with chalk.  Love that.


Check out the whole line of DecoArt.  Watch for more projects on my blog using these awesome goodies!  Thanks for checking out this easy project.

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.
