A Little Pumpkin Boo

I am going a little Old School on this one with the Mini Scary Jack O Lantern face.  I wanted to use a couple dies I own and haven't used yet... the Jack face and Petal Drop.  True...it happens!
I was at the $1 Store the other day and found these Styrofoam pumpkins and decided I could make something with that.  Then there was one of those wee top hats...I could make something with that.

I thought wrapping the pumpkin using my scrap Graphic 45 Rare Oddities paper would be easy.  Perhaps not..it's thick paper.


I added this skull charm from Emerald Creek Craft to the small Bow Tied die.  A perfect spot on the top hat.


I snapped my skeleton into place and have him sitting terrified!  I've shipped these little guys to a couple of my blogger buddies across the world!  


I just got my Ghost die...BOO!  I added clear rock candy glitter and edged with the new carved pumpkin.  


I mounted the pumpkin on Eileen Hull Box Cookie  and stamped with the new Stampers Anonymous Ledgerscript.  Then I edged with carved pumpkin distress ink.  Added the BOO and some spiders.


There was a small piece of this black tulle that came with the top hat.  Instead of chucking it I used it behind the ghosts.


This is the perfect addition to my Pumpkin Theme!


Check out my haunt.  See if you can find the projects I have created!  Yes, I made the tombstones too!





Happy Haunting!

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…
