Tim Holtz Exclusive Stamptember Release

It's here...
It's Stamptember for Simon Says Stamps and Tim Holtz have an Exclusive Release for you!  How fun are these stamps each with it's own sentiment.  If you know my blog you know I love my blueprints.  So this set is perfect.

Check it out!!  Pick your jaw up off the ground...

I was going to make something different but I saw this mini burlap panels and thought they might be perfect fit.

Sooo every seashell needs a Seahorse...right?

These gadget gears inked with ground espresso distress paints then I sprinkled some vintage photo distress embossing powder.  Looks so grungy and rusty.

I stamped and watercolored each image using the new ground espresso accenting with weathered wood, antique linen and tea dye distress markers.

EEK...I love this one.  The mini antlers to the new Fall Foliage Thinlits that arrived just yesterday.  Mail box straight to my Vagabond...varoom.

Some Idea-Ology...

Attached with linen ribbon.

I love the masculine feel I ended up making.

I think my husband has already claimed this for his office!

Check out more projects using this awesome new Tim Holtz Exclusive stamp set.

Thanks for popping in  and checking out how I created with this new stamp set!  Cannot wait to make some more.

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…
