Passport to the World

The other day a big box of goodies arrived via the big brown truck.  Nothing like Happy Mail.  Some of the goodies packed away was a pile of papers perfect for travel crafting!

Xyron packed a box of stuff you'll be seeing over the coming weeks.  This project is decked out with Teresa Collins papers, ink and accessories.  The knew right away I wanted to use my Passport Sizzix die.


I cut the passport with chipboard and cut the Wanderlust paper to deck it out.  I sprayed the spine cut with black soot distress spray and dragged Gold Shine ink over it.


I attached all the pattern paper pieces to the chipboard with the Xyron tape.  Inking the edges with black soot distress ink and more Gold Shine for a worn look.


A variety of mini sizzix die cuts... all travel related cut with chipboard and pattern paper.  I ran the chipboard cuts through the create a sticker for the back of the chipboard.  


The paper cuts go through the Creative Station and attach to the chipboard.  In moments the die cuts are ready to attach to the Passport.

Taking the golden paperclips and coating them in alcohol ink makes them more rustic, perfect for my style.  I heard the   Creative Station is perfects for adding adhesive for thick clear cardstock without showing the sticky...

Ohhh it worked!  Fun part... stamping and decorating!


Layering the pages with these coordinating chipboard cutouts makes them thick and full perfect for journaling around.  You can use the gold shine ink for adding colour to the string.  The string pieces dry right away and you're ready to thread the pages and tie it off to the book.


I cut some tabs from the Tiny Tabs and Tags die and inked up the stamp sayings to attach the pages.


Layered mini die cuts and pattern papers for this pretty travel passport.


Little snippets of papery fun to write memories.


This passport takes no time at all to assemble with all the great paper and coordinating embellishments.

Love how this turned out!

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…
