dress form tag

This is just one of those projects that I made and can't stop looking at. We all have those right? The shimmer from the perfect pearls and glimmer mist looks better in real life. I love this stamp from Clear Art Stamps' "Material Girl" set. Super cute! I used the emboss resist technique on this tag. To achieve this look, I stamped and empossed the script with clear ep, then inked (aged mahogany, frayed burlap and vintage photo) and glimmer misted overtop. The splatter you see is actually from my messed up GM sprayer. I actually quite like this look. For the chipboard piece (maya road), I inked it with vintage photo and then added some copper perfect pearls to it.
I liked how this tag turned out so much that I just had to do an art journal page inspired by it! I will be sharing that very soon.

what I've been up to!

Life has been busy but I do have a couple things to share with you! I have finished a few projects but since it gets dark so early these days I havent been able to properly photograph them. Hopefully it will happen soon! For now I wanted to show you the fimo roses I have been working on. I plan to make a video tutorial and upload it to youtube so keep an eye out for that.These flowers are super cool to make and the look really great on cards, mini albums and tags.

This is a quick bicture of the anniversary album I made for my parents last month. I still need to take some good pictures of it but I will have that up for you to see soon I hope. It is a very interactive album with tags everywhere :)

Thanks for stopping by!

art journal - the storm

Sorry for the sporadic posts, or lack of posts in general. Life has been crazy busy... I doubt its gonna get any less busy, but I will still try to post more! I am quite sad about the mere one post last month, but hey, what can you do :) I havent done any seasonal creations yet (halloween was to busy!) hoping for a good Christmas creation turnout. This is an art journal page I made some time ago. I love this quote. To me it means opportunities in life dont always come at a convenient time, they must be taken when you can get them.
I have been trying to upload a journal flip to youtube but it keeps failing. Not sure why! You can look forward to a mini album from me in the near future! I created an anniversary album for my parent's 25th last month.
