For Your Travelers Journal

I think I have established how much I love the Wild Whimsy Collection from Wild Whisper. The dragonflies and the wings are my fave, but the seashells come a pretty close second.
For this project I kept it quite simple. I wanted something to go with the travelers journal that is available with this collection. And let's face it, we all need clips and doo dads to go with our journals. So I used the idea from Eileen Hull's video where she made clips, click HERE to see the video, the clip making starts about 30 minutes in. I used the Wild Whimsy paper and stamp set to make a set of matching clips for my journal.

For more detailed pics and instructions head on over to the Wild Whisper blog.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are all having a great week!

Sweet Dragonflies!

It's time to show one of my favorite parts of the new Wild Whimsy line from Wild Whisper!! Ohhh the dragonflies and stamps of dragonfly wings! Yes I think everything should have wings, especially these pretty dragonfly wings! Up on the Wild Whisper blog is my Dragonfly Wing Shimmer canvas.

Shimmery background using Ken Oliver Mineral Bursts and the beautiful wings stamped in TH Distress Oxide in Blueprint Sketch. The stamped wings are a part of this wonderful set

Wild Whimsy is here!

I was so excited for this release from Wild Whisper! Love the ocean and the dragonfly wings! My first project combines so many gems and shimmer and I got to use the fabulous Xyron Sticker Maker! so handy when I had strips of little gems that were all going to need adhesive.
For all the details and the close ups head on over to the Wild Whisper Blog and don't forget to order your very own Wild Whimsy Collection! And yes...that mermaid is part of the collection too!

Thanks for popping by! Stay tuned because I'll have 3 more projects with the Wild Whimsy Collection, and they may or may not involve the dragonfly wings! :)

Have a great week!

Art Journalling and Me

I have so many journals, but haven't made it a habit to use them. I think the time to start is now! Not a new year's resolution but something I want to do. Once I'm sitting there getting inky/painty/gluey I love it and feel relaxed and I love that feeling. So I need to get in there and just play far more often! So I've started with one page, over a couple of days but used colours that are not my go to choices and stencils and metal and an old piece of cardboard. And I loved it! 

Here is my finished page in my larger Dylusions journal.

The background is done with 3 colours of Distress Oxides, Fired Brick, Vintage Photo and Wild Honey. On the left hand side is a Stencil Girl stencil that I did with gesso first so it acted as a resist. I used the same stencil on the right in Walnut Stain.

Over top of the inked stencil I used a TH stencil with clear texture paste for an added layer.

Again over the ripped up piece of TH Etcetera Stash, I used clear texture paste for another layer.

One of my TH word bands that I had in my stash...also one of my plans for the year is to "use what I have" and dig into my stash and get into a project instead of just sitting around looking pretty haha I used some hemp twine and a piece of cardboard from my last Wild Whisper order.

Loving the foil thing right now!! I need more foil and I really want the Rebekah Meier Mixed Media Medium from Therm Web and some of her transfer foil in Antique Pearl and patina!! So many great colours. The foil I have and used on this one is the Ranger Holiday package, I used the gold and the Vintage package is a must have too.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!!

Cards with Scrap Shotz

Spent some time creating cards with the February Kit from Scrap Shotz.  This month is featuring Vicki Boutin's All The Good Things collection.

Scrap Shotz has such versatile collections for their monthly scrapbook kits! I did a layout last week and this week I made three fairly different cards. 

Beside the fact that I love this stamp and paper, I watched Eileen Hull do her Facebook live video and it was all about foiling today! I knew I had to foil this paper for a card. I just used a glue pen because that's what I had, but if you want to see all the other stuff you  could use head on over to see Eileen's video

For more detailed pics and instructions, head on over to Scrap Shotz Snap Shotz and have a look. Also take the time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created with this collection too!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Thanks for stopping in.
