tagging time to play!!!!

LOL.. too funny.. ‘tagging’ the time to play instead of taking!! oh prolly not as funny as I think but still!!!!

so I am here to share with you a #12 tag I created over the last bit. and I say over the last bit because it was one of those weekend this past weekend.
I was lucky to be able to squeeze in 5 days off and it wasn’t even vacation time.
I had lots to do and for the most part, the weather cooperated. I built a shed, a cat kennel, moved a walk way and played in the gardens. oh squeezed in a couple of runs too!! a very productive few days.

so in between all of that I created!!

so it started with running two tags through the vagabond using tim’s mixed media thinlits (http://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product NULL.aspx?id=316467). I absolutely knew I had to have this and am so glad I do!! the possibilities … crazy!

I then switched to adding some colour. I started by using my distress ink pads directly to the tag, sprayed water followed by distress stain spray and when it was good and wet …

I plopped the second tag on top of the first…

love that I now have two backgrounds to work with!
and this is what I ended up with
tim's 5 distress coloursfor the background, in behind the tag, I used a piece of packaging from a layered stencil.  I’ve always saved the packaging as they are so very cool all on their own… I couldn’t throw them out!

and here are a couple close ups:

so much fun just creating for the sake of creating…..
what have you been up to!!

Stampotique ATB wedding cake!

hello everyone!!

i am here quickly to show you another way to create using an Eileen Hull ATB (Artist Trading Block (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/658984/sizzix-scoreboards-xl-die-blocks-cubes-3-d))

it all started when i received the silver super fine embossing powder and the Botanical Sketch stamp set awhile ago and was playing around with them. they were such a super elegant combination i just knew they would make the perfect design for an ATB Stampotique wedding cake!!

pretty simple stuff… i started off by stamping then sprinkled on some embossing powder heat set and go!!

stampotique wedding cake

for the top layer and the bottom of the bottom layer i used Eileens sunburst (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/product/659879/sizzix-textured-impressions-embossing-folders-2pk-sunburst-waffle-set) embossing folder and some metal.. i absolutely LOVE this effect!!

and here are a few close ups of the bride and groom as well as the cake!
Daniel Torrento Connie
Daniel Torrente Checkersi stamped them on shrink film, coloured them and then shrunk them!! are they not the cutest ever!!

a really quick and easy ATB project to create and share…would be cute and easily converted into a ‘money tree’ just by using Eileen’s bank slot in one of the panels!!

hope you have been creating!!

TTT – June 2015

okay.. now this was a fun one!!! not that they all aren’t really!!

so this was my second time playing with the custom blend ink pads!! I am totally addicted to these as I am sure anyone else who has tried them are !!

I have a few of them in stock… (like 12!) so have been able to play and make a few sets. my two favorite are my original one I made using  blues and this one which was made in my last class. And well because I love them so much I made a green one too!!

custom blend love

this first one is just a clean up page!! it’s crazy what one can create just by playing with those mop up pages.  i love the added reminders i have throughout the page using rub on words

colorburst observations

this one i love.. everything about it… the colour combinations, the solid black i used through one of my TCW stencils, the random butterflies… and those flowers!!! i love the texture !!!this is the story

but this one by far is one of my favourite art journal pages ever!!!colorburst journeythough it’s hard to tell in picture alone how crazy cool this page is i created a short video to share with you which you can find on my instagram feed or my facebook page.. missusgmoments.
