Adventure Awaits Travel Journal

This by far is my favourite release from Eileen's new Sizzix collection.  It's a sizeable Travel Journal...ACK!  This will be a must have die in your collection.  Imagine keepsakes, photos and findings tucked away in this fabulous journal.

I covered the journal with Sizzix Leather Paper for a worn leathery look.


Join me through the pages of my Travel Journal.  My pages are cut in Kraft cardstock and Wild Whispers Adventure Paper Pack.


I used a combination of dies including Wildflowers.    The Dashing Deer die and wildflowers pair well with the Wild Whispers paper pack.  


I stamped the juniper stamp from my Woodland Winter stamp set and added the evergreen die cut.


I made an inside pouch for a stamped layer of notes and such.

I even added a spot to add a pencil.  I fussy cut the grizzly and the "Made in Canada" from the Adventure paper.  Clever...


A little messy stamping on the label.


Attached is some hardware with twine to keep it closed.


Cut with mat board this travel journal is very sturdy.


Full of pages...


Journals are so popular and this die is a game changer.  Be sure to check the rest of the Inspiration Team and how they designed with their journals.

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 …

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…

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.
