art journal - texture

Those of you who have watched my youtube videos may have already seen this. Usually my blog is much more updated than my videos but in the case of my art journal it is not! I created this page probably back in the summer, but for some reason never got it posted.The texture on this page is really much better in person. I love how that element came out.

I mod podged some lace into the paer, very pretty.

As always, this page has many symbols for me. Art means different things to everyone so I will leave you to make your own judgements on what those symbols might be :) Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas gift tags

Well I am just on a blogging roll now that the busyness of Christmas is over! I am looking forward to some relaxing and fun days before I have to go back to school.
Today I have 2 different tags to share with you. I like making these for my friends and family because once they open the gift, they can still use the tag as a bookmark or just keep it to look at. I wrapped my gifts in brown paper bags (yay recyling!) and that way all the tags coordinate!For this tag I used a TH stamp (at the movies set) in the background and then inked and glimmer misted over it. I stamped and embodded the wings, then cut them out and inked them.
For a final touch, I added the safety pin with the cross charm on it. Very simple, but pretty.
Here I used similar techniques. I repeatedly stamped "Christmas" in the background, then glimmer misted and inked it.

I stamped the snowflake, them embossed it with gold. The "do not open until christmas" stamp is from Stampin' Up.

Merry Christmas to All!

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas day! I sure did :) We went to my Aunt and Uncle's house for dinner (it was fantastic and yummy!) and I got to see my cousins and aunts and uncles and everyone else. Had a good time :) Today we are having friends over for supper and that will be fun too. How I love the holidays!
I have 3 cards in this post to share with you. They were all very quick! I used some imaginisce paper and some DCWV paper. I loved the look of the TH film strip layered on the TH paper tape. Super pretty!
This paper is just adorable! All peices were cut from one sheet!
Here I mixed it up by stapling lace onto the card.

Thanks for stopping by! I will have more cards and some christmas tags to share in the near future!

christmas cards!

So I have been putting off making christmas cards this year (mostly because I didnt have time!) but yesterday I finally felt the creativity to get started. These 12 cards came together rather quickly (only a few hours) and I like how they turned out. You are probably thinking "but its already christmas eve!" Do not fret, I will be giving them out tomorrow. Here are all 12 cards. In this post I am sharing 2 and will show you the rest in future posts.
I just got the TH film strip ribbon transparency stuff. LOVE THIS! I am really into anything film strip and this is just great! I love how it fits perfectly with the stamp from Tim's At The Movies set.
I stamped and embossed these wings and handcut them out.
This card is the exact same but with the brown and green reversed. I like how both look but I think this one is my favourite.

art journal - sew glimmery

I cannot believe it is December already! How the time flies. I sure can't wait till Chrismas holidays, it will be a much needed break.So this is the art journal page that was inspired by the tag I last posted. I used alot of the same techniques. (ex: perfect pearls on the chip pieces) The background was created using mainly paint, distress ink, TH tissue tape, some dictionary paper, glimmer mist and perfect pearls. I stamped some images from Clear Art Stamps' "Material Girl" set (same as tag) using black Staz-on ink and then covered them with glossy accents.
I added some TH ruler ribbon (made from canvas material, super fun!) and I drew some stiches using my caligraphy pen and ink.
More pretty perfect pearls chipboard (pieces from maya road)

I like to stamp the date somewhere on some of my pages just so I can remember when they were created. (yes, sorry, I made this on Nov. 14th and it is just getting posted now... my bad)
