Project Life 2015 - February

Well, since I've been crafting again, I thought it was time to get another month completed for my Project Life Album.  I printed pictures and completed February last night!  This one was a little tricky for me, I was challenged a bit by the colours but eventually it all fell into place :)  The layout is using  Studio Calico's Cirque Project Life kit.

Here you can see how the pages flow.

Live Simply.....Give Generously - Tim's Tags August 2016

I'm having a crafty weekend :)  It's been so long and I'm so enjoying playing with my stash!!  I decided to play along with Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2016 - August Tag.  Looking through my supplies turned out I had pretty much everything I needed.

I didn't take any process pics this time though.

I started by brayering distress stain on the tag and then inking the tag and applying some water droplets for more texture.

After that, I die cut all the pieces using grunge paper and the trellis die and various textured and patterned papers.  This was my first time using grunge paper.  I distressed it with pain and ink and inked the edges of the small insert pieces.  Adhered the pieces to the tag and applied some Remnant Rub-ons, sticker words and ephemera.  My favorite part - since I didn't have any flower dies, I used my Wildflower stencil and black embossing paste to apply the flower - LOVE how that turned out.

The final touch was adding some black soot ink with my distress marker and mist tool and the ribbon which I also used the black soot marker to apply the black accent.  Fun, fun fun!!!

Weird is Just a Side Effect of Being Awesome

Its been so long!!!  Summertime, camping, racing, visitors from out of town!!  It's been a good one :)

Anyway, sharing this card I made for my daughter yesterday.  Not for any reason other than she loves owls!!  Her friends tell her she looks like an owl - not sure I see that, but whatever!!!

I used these two stamps from Unity Stamp Company's November 2015 Kit of the Month.  I got to try out my new Misti Stamping Tool - LOVED it!!

I tried a new technique - edging the stamped panel with glossy accents and applying Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.

I absolutely love this sentiment and it's perfect for my daughter :)

A Mother....

I'm back with a Mother's Day card for my mother in law.  This is a Unity Stamp set called First Friend, Best Friend, Forever.  I watercoloured using my new Neocolor II crayons.  You might also notice I was playing a bit - staging the photo lol.  This was fun, but I had issues blurring the background even after changing to Aperture Priority on my camera.  But I'm still happy with how it looks.  I didn't have the sequins on the card when I first photographed, they were just used for the scene, then I thought hey - those would look great on the card!!  There's a bit of Wink of Stella on the flower buds for for a little sparkle.

I'm entering this in The Card Concept's Spring Flowers Challenge.

Watercolour Play

Hi folks - I'm still here!!  Haven't had much time for crafting lately.  But I have been playing in my watercolour journal.  The cactus images are the CTMH Stuck on You stamp and die set.  Did a little masking with this one.  I used my Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolour paints.

And this is a Unity Stamp called First Friend, Best Friend, Forever using my Neocolor II crayons.
