Going Round in Circles

I am guest blogging today over at A Vintage Journey and I'm so excited to share this Mixed Media Masculine canvas.  Here's a quick tutorial using supplies I'm sure you already have available in your craft room!


I started by adding some Magenta Nuance Powder Dyes to my canvas then blended with water and a watercolor pen.  A little heat to speed things along.
Layering circles can happen in many ways.  Here I stamped through my Splotches stencil.  I used the ring for my sticky tape to get the large circle, cap for smaller circles and the end of my pencil.  Simply dipped in distress paint.

Using black soot distress crayon on the large circle by smearing.  I stamped my image however due to the texture I decided to add some black soot by simply coloring.

It's always a good idea to add gears when creating a masculine project.  Gadget Gears #2 is coated in these vibrant Emerald Creek Embossing Powders. 


Every Man...


Love these gears in metallic embossing powders from Emerald Creek.


A clock part from Southern Ridge Trading Co. is a perfect tie.


The distress crayon black soot is great to add to the hat to help fill in the texture from the canvas.


A cap and eraser can do wonders.


Simple and Masculine.


I hope you liked my little canvas.  These techniques can be used on a card, tag, journal... anything!  Thank you for popping in :)

Liberty

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. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
