Christmas in July

I tried a few different things on this layout. I used some clear epoxy dots, with stickles a simple embellishment…………..

I made bows and poked pins through them. I tied the bow and then wrapped a small piece over the center and poked the pin through it. I’ve had these pins for a long time but never knew what to do with them I have seen other people do similar things. Different types of ribbon will probably give you a different effect. Hope your inspired…..Have a great day!


Journal/Sketch Book

This is the projects my little friend Trinity and I made at this months crop. The base paper is made from tissue paper. We painted several colors onto the paper, let it dry. Then it’s glued onto the book cover with Decoupage with one layer of Decoupage painted on over the top. Then just add your embelishments.







I am not able to create a tutorial right now on masking so I thought I would
link you up to the best teacher I know, Tim Holtz. He has lots of cool demos. Have a great weekend :0)

Slumber Party

Oh Boy

Let me tell ya I am trying to post things more consistently, but life keeps getting in the way. :0)This is my latest layout. I tore the top cardstock layer and applied ink to it and all of the paper edges. I used an ink pad, and the Tim Holtz foam applicator for distressed inks. To mask you just stick down the mask, dip your foam applicator into an ink pad and rub onto the paper. It’s best to start away from the paper to avoid harsh dark marks and then work to the edge of the paper in a circular motion. If you haven’t tried masking you should, you can get some interesting results. The paper I used is Tim Holtz Mother Goose, I cut out the cards and inked the edges. I put them on the layout with pop dots. Hope you enjoy the layout and it motivates you to try something new.
