Poinsettia

Break out the Jingles... Christmas crafting is happening!

There's a new team up this week between Xyron and Waffle Flower and all week the team is sharing some awesome inspirational projects.  Check out this step by step using my pages from a 115 year old book and my Mega Runner pulling it all together.


I gathered some Tidings paper and Super Stock for the base of my card.  I then grabbed my very old pages for the tattered poinsettia and background with a little white gesso to take the inking.

The tattered poinsettia is spray stained and added a little matching ink to punch it up.  The Stamp Platform is perfect for stamping this 115 year old paper.  No mistakes when it comes to working with paper this old.


OK, maybe one mistake!  Paper this old is fragile and it stuck to the stamps.  But that's OK that's what glue and adhesive is for.  I mounted the paper to a piece of super stock with the mega runner.  Then applied a little glue n' seal for the ripped off bit.  Like it never happened!  


Back to colouring with my Scribble Sticks and the sticker Maker comes in handle for my holiday words and mini tag I stamped! 

One of my favourite dies is the tattered poinsettia.  I love how well it goes with the Waffle Flower Poinsettia Stamp Set.  A perfect pairing! 

It has a vintage feel!

Thank you checking out my little Waffle Flower tutorial.  Don't miss out on all the creative fun this week!  Get your holiday crafts in gear!

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…
