Celebrating Birthdays Together

Wow where has the month of June gone, it's fading fast pretty soon we all will celebrating the 4th of July and our Freedom. Well before that happens my hubby and I get to celebrate our birthdays!
That's right our birthdays are only a day apart, the funny thing is that my whole life I have shared my birthday with my twin brother, then I marry a man  and we continued on for the past 26 years of sharing our birthday celebration. And we love it! Oh yes I have said a time or two gosh I have never had my own birthday day! Haha I wouldn't want it any different.

My hubby loves me so and I him, he feels my cup with joy!
We've been married 26 years and still going strong.

Lee is so busy with is music gigs and I tag along with him to support, carry guitars 
and love to hear him sing and play. God has blessed this man with a beautiful talent
and he loves to share it with others. He is a keeper, my man!

Oh this pic, just beams the love and joy we have for each other.

Happy Birthday babe!

Altered Vintage Style Mailbox for CCB Crew Challenge: 12 x 12 Kraft Envelope

Over on the Canvas Corp Brands Blog, HERE is showcasing all the 
amazing artwork from the CREW...
"It is All About The 12 x 12 Kraft Envelope Crew Challenge

Here is my take on this challenge using a 12 x 12 Kraft
Envelope I received in my design team package.

Altered Vintage Style Mailbox

I even used Canvas Corp Brands Names on the mailbox
CCB, 7g and TA

I dug through my stash for embellishments as well as created a little
 "welcome" banner using 7g Architextures papers.

I so love how the CCB Tissue Stock with layers of 
Tattered Angels glimmer mist and paint gives such great texture! 

Our challenge was to create a piece of art with the envelope we
personally got in our design team package. 
You can purchase these envelopes over on the Canvas Corp Brands
Shop, HERE.

I received the 12x12 Kraft Envelope in my design team package, 
and this was a super fun challenge. Here is a small walk through
of how I turned a plain 12x12 Kraft Envelope into an 
Altered Vintage Style Mailbox!

I started by laying the envelope down on a scoring board, scoring about an
1 inch in on both sides and bottom.
Fold your score lines a few times helps to give a good crease .

Fold  in on the fold lines to create a bag like shape.
Glue down the two triangle points to the bottom and on the top
fold the closing flap in half as well as the front flap to the envelope.

Not shown-I took chipboard and cut to size of all sides, front and back including 
the closing flaps. I cut to sizes, taped together to create a box shape to slide inside
of the envelope to give strength and shape to the envelope.

I took Canvas Corp Tissue Stock in Natural and Ivory (color doesn't matter)
I crinkled up the tissue stock and glued down to the envelope.
Created chipboard seams and painted with Gesso- white washed everything, this will help the Tattered Angels glimmer mist, glimmer glaze and high impact paint to stick to.

Before painting the final layer this is when I glued down all the 
embellishments like the 7G Architextures Tin Tile, hardware and letters.
Painted it with a layer of  Light Blue of Tattered Angels High Impact paint.

Grab your favorite Tattered Angels glimmer mist and glimmer glazes and color away.
Many layers of mist just keep adding til you get the effect you are looking for.
Allow to dry and then embellish even more, I created a little 
"welcome" banner using 7G Architextures papers.
 I created a little stack of faux letters and adorn it with spring time florals.

Farmhouse Style- Windmill Wall Decor Distressed with Tattered Angels & Tutorial

Do you love the farmhouse style? I sure do, but sometimes wall decor
can be pricey. I knew I really wanted a windmill wall art piece and 
  I knew I could create one. I gathered up supplies and my favorite colors
of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and got creating. Here is a simple tutorial
for you to follow along with me. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy.


Creating the pattern panels
I hand drew my own pattern, but there are patterns/coloring
 pages to use online just pick one that you like. 
Next I traced the pattern onto chipboard and cut it out (I did 7 panels). 
Now glue the chipboard panels down onto tinfoil (yes you heard me right TINFOIL).
It's amazing what you can create with chipboard and tinfoil together. 

Once you glue the chipboard to tinfoil cut around the chipboard 
panel leaving a 1/4 inch boarder all around.
 Wrap the tinfoil around the chipboard with glue.
 Next I covered the back with piece of tinfoil to fit.

Dry Texture: Embossing

Grab your favorite embossing folder and carefully run the
chipboard panel through the embossing machine.
 I had to run it through a couple of times to cover the whole panel
I love how tinfoil looks embossed.
Sand down the top of the chipboard panel after you emboss it, this will
help the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to stick to the tinfoil. 

White wash the chipboard panels with Gesso or white paint.
(white wash-brush on paint and wipe it off with a baby wipe, etc.).

Tattered Angels Time

Now onto the FUN PART-Coloring with Tattered Angels
Glimmer Mist. Canvas Corp Brands has a ton of beautiful colors of Glimmer Mist
 for you to choose from. Follow this link to the Canvas Corp Brands Shop, grab
your favorite color of Tattered Angels Glimmer mist

Coloring the Panels

I started by spraying the lightest color down first and worked out to the darkness.
Now it's a good idea to let the mist pool together and blend...dry in between the
layers of glimmer don't want mud color to happen. 
I think I sprayed and painted with a brush to help move the color, 
I used a heat tool and paper towel to dry and dab off the excess of color. 
(I used many different colors of glimmer mist, you can use two or four colors. It's 
really up to you and the look you are going for.)

Here is what the windmill panels look like once the glimmer mist
is dried. I just love the old time feel it gives using tinfoil.

The windmill blades needed more texture so I grabbed a few
embossing powders and I added a few layers over and over.
Sanded down the melted layers to take away the shine and
 give tooth for the glimmer mist to hang onto.

Here is a photo of the back of the windmill to 
help give depth on the canvas I added chipboard pieces
 around the windmill. 

I created a backdrop onto a canvas using chipboard strips
cover with wood grain pattern papers. Distress edges with
Oxide Ink-Walnut Stain..glue down, off set the paper slats.
To give the faux wood grain look to the background.

After the windmill was attached to the canvas and hung
on the wall I could step back and see where the piece 
needed more texture. I used Metallic-Rubs-ons colors brushed
onto with my fingers, highlighting the textures to help bring them out.

Loving the textures....

"Be Happy" Scrapbook layout mixed media with Tattered Angels

"Be Happy" 

I've been going back to my old roots and 
diving into scrapbooking again. 
It also could be the fact that I need a little brightness in my life. 
The winter here in New Hampshire has been long, cold and still going into our 
"spring" I created a little of my own sunshine!
The photo was perfect for my mixed media cheerful background just look
at those umbrella's which hang in the air between buildings during the summer. 
It's a really cool to see in person and just brings a smile to you. 

I started with the mixed media background, I used white card stock
and a Heidi Swapp  dot stencil and TCW Light n Fluffy Modeling Paste.
To bring on the color I reached for Tattered Angels yummy colors in
glimmer mist and glimmer glam's. 
(list of colors below)

I created my own handmade fabric flowers that where perfect
 for the color tones I created in this layout. 

Added some random stamping and splatters of glimmer mist, also I used the 
technique of plastic sheet with glimmer mist/glam and squashed onto the 
textured background...such a fun technique. 

I used chipboard pieces by CE-Creative Embellishments-Circle painted
with Gesso and added layers of Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Cup Cake
heating in between layers...helps to bubble up the glam.

Girl's Trip Junkin Layout using Hip Kit's March Kit/Maggie Holmes

I created this scrapbook layout the other day to play along
with a weekly challenge for the Hip Kit Club Facebook Forum.
I started to receiving Hip Kit Club monthly kits
 last year and I am so hooked!

I used the March Hip Kit 2018 
 it's filled with amazing products...
Why not JOIN Hip Kit Club more details HERE!

It all started with a weekly sketch and a beautiful kit....oh and coffee!

The kit is filled with many different brands of scrapbooking products 
one that I used a lot through out this layout was the Maggie Holmes Flourish collection. 
I knew I wanted to use this photo of my daughter Olivia and I, we were 
heading out for a day of shopping, junking and spending good time together.
I was like quick lets take a selfie....she giggles! 

I just love this layout and I must say I know it's cause I love layers!

When I saw the hearts on the sketch I knew I wanted to create a garland, who doesn't love a flowing garlands....this girl does!

OMG love this little dear!
But now I don't have another one, time to go shopping.

If you know me you know I love floral's....and in the Maggie Holme
Flourish collection is filled with them....and pretty little animals.
Like this little Quail she is so adorable (reminds me of a memory of my 
oldest brother who raised Quail's in high school) 
see scrapping brings back memories.

One of my favorite layers in this layout is the old dictionary page that
I ripped out of the old dictionary book I got 
at a flea market trip.
It's hard to see in the photos but
 I used the page all about the word
"JUNK" !

I haven't scrapbook in awhile life gets busy so I have decided this year to 
take more time for what I really love to do. 

Thanks for stopping by today and scrap on!

CCB 5x7 Card-Dressform with Chicken Wire & Tutorial

I'm featured on the Canvas Corp Brands Blog today,
sharing my 5x7 Card created with Tattered Angels, 7Gypsies and Canvas Corp products.

Here is a 5x7 card using the 7 Gypsies Architextures-Market Signs card stock
 which I used the flip side with beautiful wood grain floral patterns on it.
This card was a work of  "love" with a few cool 
techniques and tricks. I will share how I took Canvas Corp Chicken Wire Card stock
to create my own embellishment.
 How I dressed up a dress form die cut with CCB Flute paper. 
So let's dive in....

Creating your own chicken wire embellishments 
(which I have video sharing these steps, below).
I used Canvas Corp Black & Ivory Chicken Wire Card stock, fussy cut out
a section of the pattern. Dabbed on Versa Mark embossing ink
and embossing powders to create depth and tooth for the Tattered Angels glimmer mist
to grab onto. It's all about layers and more layers....
Picture below show the finished embellishment I glued 
old book paper and netting behind the embossed chicken wire piece
 for an added layer on the card front.

Here is the video sharing this technique.....

Here is part two of adding Tattered Angels glimmer mist...

Part 2
CCB Chicken Wire Cardstock to Embellishment

Let's chat about the dressform die cut piece, I die cut out the dressform many times
in different papers to create layers. First layer chipboard, then Tattered Angels
Mixed Media Origins-Nature and the top layer is Canvas Corp Flute paper-white. I distressed  the edges with Tattered Angels glimmer mist-Graphite, adorable!

Thanks for stopping by today, go ahead and grab your papers, mists and create away!
