Beware ~Halloween tag

Hello friends 
Just a quick post to share this homemade Freestanding wooden tag...
I rescued some wood destined for the log fire 
 cut it into a tag shape...
I then added lots of layers of Tim holtz distress paints and some crackle paste 
I added some rusty wire and a word-chip  from Halloween ideaolgot
And distressed a washer.... 
I’ll keep it for Halloween and will hang it on my door! 
I hope you like it!

Be Strong... Journal Page

Hello friends

I hope you are all good!
Can you believe we are in October?!
Honestly this year has just flown by...

Today I'm sharing a Journal page which I've used a real mixture of products....
I have lots of brands of paints, mediums etc that I just don't use, not because I don't like them its just I don't get a chance to play or experiment.
I was inspired by the colours of the Autumn and these collage words by Dina Wakely, they are a reminder of everything I need to be.
Ive used a Tim Holtz stencil (061) with gesso, then when dry I applied layers of Paperartsy paint in Captain Peacock, some antiqued bronze distress paint and Finnabair (Carmine) liquid acrylic
Its all about building up layers of the paints
To add much texture I added some sewing with my sewing machine, then I hand sewed around the words... I will add this panel to my journal 
I'm hoping to be a lot more creative as I have made some changes... 
(but more about that another time)
As always please feel free to leave a comment I really do appreciate you passing by
Have a great week!

Journal page...Never give up

 Hello friends 

Today I’m sharing a journal page
Made from layers of text and Manila card-stock
The background is coloured with distress oxides, distress inks and crackle paste I also used paperartsy infusions which I give a really subtle effect... 
I sewed into the layers and added a butterfly from idea-ology 
I had forgotten how much I enjoy creating in layers, I actually prefer to make a page then add it to my journal, that way it allows you to add so much more

As always feel free to leave a comment, I appreciate you passing by,

This one uses all the new Tim Holtz Halloween idea-ology   
I used an Ecetera tag as a base and glued some of the new abandoned papers to it then added crackle paste to give it another layer of texture 

I then added a frame with one of the new butterfly stickers inside a mini fram
I then added lots of bottles, eyes, pumpkins and word coins 

To finish I coloured some stars and added some words

Halloween Halloween Vignette Box

Hello friends
Hope you are good!
Today I'm sharing another sample from the Tim Holtz Halloween Release...
This time I used some of the Idea-ology Vignette boxes
and created a front and back story.
I used some of the bones to make a fence by threading rusty wire through them, I also popped out an eye and added it to the skull.
I added lots of layers, bottles, trinkets all form Idea-ology
I even made some bone brads to add to the word chips...
This is the reverse side of the box

Again lots of layers from the Halloween ephemera packs/wings and I coloured some of the bandage using distress oxides
The main box was then finished by screwing it to another smaller box 
This was so much fun to make and I loved to add all the layers to it
The Halloween Idea-ology os now shipping from Art from the Heart
check them out here 
Please do leave a comment I really do appreciate them 

Have a great week
