Beyond...

I cannot believe it's been a month since I have been in my craft room!  I was starting to go a little stir crazy.  I wanted to make sure I got my July Tag done. Phew, just making it again.  
Excuse the warm lighting.  I was up early and crafting this morning.
 I am so excited by the new releases and Halloween coming I decided to go spooky!  I always try to find a different angle on the tags while still maintaining the techniques.  Variety is the spice of life.


I used the Mini Blueprints #7 and kept all my watercoloring messy!


Instead of the metal numbers I used my enamel and added a little twisted citron distress paint along with the wee mirrored star.  I sanded off some of the paint.  


I picked up the wishbones while I was down south.  I used my piercer to make a hole so I could attach it to the token.


Do you have the Micro Glaze yet?  I love this stuff!  


Using black soot to spritz the tag going heavy and light all around the tag.


Bring on the new releases and Halloween!


Not to worry...I was supervised the whole time by Flurry!


It's good to be back and crafting.  Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to stop by Tim's Blog to see all the techniques!

  5. I think you have just inspired me to create one of these, and participate in my very first 12 Tags challenge.
    I'll try not to let your awesome take on this tag influence me too much.
    Don't wanna be a copy cat.

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
