Winter is Coming

Have you seen the new Snowglobe?  Sure you have!  

This is not for the faint of heart and you really have to be on top of your cuts!  However, the end result is STUNNING and well worth it.  I stuck to the image on the packaging so I could understand how it all comes together.  


My phone died but I did manage to get a few shots off before I had to plug it in!  Keep in mind you need to cut some of these a couple of times since you layer.  Next time I would just cut my watercolor paper 2 times. 


I feel like I'm in Austria looking at this!


I added dimension.


Here's where you layer with the lite up windows.


I used clear rock candy on all the trees, mountains and snow for that sugary look!


The Believe is from my new Woodland Winter stamp set cut and layered with the Labels Thinlit dies.


Another sentiment stamp from my new stamp set Woodland Winter.  For fun I cut the poinsettias with the new Mixed Media Christmas Thinlit then I coloured it up with Distress Crayons.


All the bits for the globe are water colored with Distress Markers.


I love this fun holiday die!  I hope this gives you some ideas for your holiday projects coming up.  After all... Winter is Coming!

  4. I saw this demoed on TV recently and thought it too fiddly but it looks amazing when assembled - it really does look like Austria or perhaps the main street in Banff looking towards the mountain. But whatever - it looks fabulous!! Anne xx

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…
