Vintage Diorama Ornament

I love the simplicity of  these Vintage Diorama Ornaments.  
I haven't come across any so it looks like I get to make some.  These are the clear plastic photo ornaments.  When you  take them apart they become 2 ornaments costing me pennies.  They are tiny so I kept the decorating to a minimum.  Which is never easy!
I coated the inside of the ornament in clear rock candy distress glitter.


See, just clear and plastic... what a little glitter and ink can't accomplish.



I cut the Dimensional Star to float in the center and wrapped with tinsel twine to hide the lip of the ornament.


This one is the same but I used the antique linen distress glitter.


The mini red lantern is hung and wrapped in pine twine.


My second ornament I painted with candied apple distress paint and coated with clear rock candy. 


I painted the deer, spritzed the mini tree and added a teen pinecone.  I used the Bow Punch for the tiding bow.


The outside gets a coat of glitter too!  The 4th ornament is drying.


Hung from the tree.


It can be hard not to fill it.


I love the woodland feel of this one.


My empty little tree is slowly filling up with homemade vintage inspired ornaments.  I have fun every year adding to it.

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…
