May-Adventure note book

Hello friends

I hope you are all good...

Today I'm sharing an Eileen Hull Sizzix die notebook
I started by covering it in lots of layers of book text glued down with collage medium,
when completely dry I added a layer of gesso.
I then added layers of distress oxides, distress paints and some Deco art media paint in Quinacridone, which gives a really rich vibrant rust colour.
I added some stencilling using Tim Holtz (THS 020) and stamped using one of Tims background stamps.
The centre is some vintage text from an old book  
page, framed with a frame and a star from Idea-ology, I typed the 'notes' using my old vintage typewriter.
To finish I added some pages to the inside and an old key from my stash
The numbers are from an old number stamp I have.

As always feel free to leave a comment as its great to know you popped by...
Have a great week

May- journal- little girl

Hello friends 

I hope you are all good..
Today I'm sharing with you some journal pages create in my mini journal.
I started by adding layers of music to the pages, sticking them down with collage medium.
I then added a layer of Dina Wakley gesso, when it was dry I added more through a tim Holtz stencil ( TMS 102)
When it was dried added a layer of colour using distress oxides in tea dye and ground expresso, I the wiped off the excess and then built up further layers using distress crayons.
I then added some sewing into the page then added some stamping into the background using ( tim Holtz CMS364 - mini media marks)
I then added a base board photo (Idea-ology) and the words are from clippings 
I had some printed some gel plate prints so I used a scallop punch to cut into them and added them to the pages.  The added journal page is also from idea-ology.... heres what it looks like underneath...
The numbers were stamped from an old vintage stamp from my stash.

I hope you like them, please feel free to leave a comment I really do appreciate you passing by.
Have a lovely week

April - His Heart

Hello friends

I hope you are all good!
Today I'm sharing with you a little Idea-ology project that Ive been working on...
I love to create with Idea-ology, I have to say its probably my favourite product lines from Tim Holtz.

I started by using the Paper fastener tin, I applied lots of layers of distress paints, gesso and crackle paints, sealed with a layer of vintage collage medium.
The tin was lined with papers and I cut down some of the Etcetera trims to create little shelves to rest some of the ideology pieces on.
I then framed it with one of the new Sizzix Trinket frames from the chapter 2 series, I gave it a distressed look using crackle paste and distress paints.
I added the baseboard paper doll and created a small hoop for the little boy to hold using some old rusty wire and then finished by attaching some of the wings to him..
The lid was lined with papers and another distressed frame was added, I distressed one of the new date dials using distress paints.  I added a star to the middle and some words from the clippings/

I fished by adding a Faucet knob to the top of the tin by drilling through using my trusty dremal. 

Thank you so much for passing by, feel free to leave a comment, I really do appreciate them.

Wishing you a lovely Easter break, I'm off to enjoy some precious time with family and friends
Best wishes
