Jessica Jones - Karleigh Sue

There was a fabulous new release this month over at Karleigh Sue.  And today I get to share with you another one of them :)

I chose to play with the wonderful Jessica Jones.  I did this journaling page while I was away for a weekend with my friend Erin.  I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do.. but I had been playing with magazine cut out and saw this great page that I thought would work fabulously with her.

The bottom part of the page is done with a brown paper bag that the wine purchased came in.  The sentiment was found online and then I stamped it out individually to make it.  I lined the paper with some newspaper :)  Yup recycling at it's best.  The wonderful image was colored with my copics.  I even made her a plaid shirt!  I was very proud of that.  And then I fussy cut her out.

I will be entering this in the following challenges:

  1. ccee stampers - Mixed media
  2. Aud sentiments challenge blog - Funny Sentiment - I think this one is pretty funny
  3. Crafting with an attitude  - anything goes
  4. southern girls challenge - anything goes
  5. Crafty creations challenges - anything goes

I hope you liked this and that it will inspire you to look at the papers around you differently and just have fun and play :)

Say What?!? - RSD

Hello and happy Monday to you all!  I'm here to share with you my very last make as an EDT design member of Rick St-Dennis.  I have had such a great time for the past year 1/2 and learned so much from Rick as well as from all the wonderful DT.

For this last make I was really nervous because I wanted to do a really good job.  The image that I'm playing with really fits me I think lol minus the weird clothes... It's the great Say what?!? and I used her as the very 1st page of my new dylusion journal.  I have received this journal a full year ago from the wonderful Paola Jofre.  And because it's a dylusion journal I was having issues actually playing with it.  I know it's silly but that's what it is.  I tend to have trouble using what I totally adore... something to work on.

Anyway, I figured this post for RSD would be the perfect opportunity to finally use it!

I printed my image really large and colored her with all kinds of different colors that I would not usually use together.  A way to get me out of my box.  I made the background for this using my neocolors (I don't use those enough either!).  Then I used my black fude pen to highlight the circles as well as the border.  The sentiment is from Delusion by Ranger.  I put them on some left over black cardstock from a die cut.

I'm entering this in this fabulous new challenge:
Inky mess - Anything goes mixed media

I had lots of fun and now that my journal is started well I'll be good to continue it :)

Hope you liked this and looking forward to your comments.

Good Sunday to all of you

Wow it's so very quiet on my blog isn't it... not blogging as much as I used too.  Doing more videos and trying to do new mixed media things.

Somehow I've started to associate my blog with my dt work... but I have to start blogging back just for the fun of it the way that I used to before!  So I figured on this beautiful Sunday morning, I would do just that.

1st of all Happy Father's day to all the great fathers out there.  I'm blessed for having the best of them as my father and having found the best one for my kids :)  How can 1 girl be so lucky?  I don't know but I feel blessed for this.

What have I been up to?  Well last weekend I went crafting with my friend Erin (met through blogging!!!  that's why I have to bring back my blog to life).  We met 1/2 between our two places in Ogdensburg.  We had found a little family motel where we got a HUGE room and were able to craft to our little hearts desire.  I have to admit being super teary eyed when it came for the goodbyes... I didn't want to leave this wonderful time with my friend... the good news is that we can do this again and I sure hope that we find time in our busy life to do so.

What did you do will you ask?  Well my friend Erin wanted to do more mixed media but she's was having difficulty to be loose about it and just go with the flow.  So we did a JB5 album.  If you have never done one it's about journaling in 5 steps.  And for each steps you have 15 minutes (except for the image part).  Because there's not a lot of time you really have to just let it go.  And I think it was an amazing thing to do.  I have done 2 previously but it really made me feel alive to do this again!

I'm doing a video series of those 5 steps that we did and you can see the 1st video here:

After that came the best part because we just played with all the leftovers, and the left over cards and such where the paint that was left was put.  And here is the set of 5 cards that I did for a swap with a new youtube friend.  I really adore getting interactions with people on youtube or on my blog and getting a request from someone that says they would like to swap with me is really awesome!!!

Here's the card set that has been sent out :
To make these it's only paints, magazine cut outs, doodling, stamping and whatever was on the table at the time :)  And boy oh boy was this fun!!!  And this will have to happen more in my life because this is what is making me feel happy!!!!

I'm going to enter these altered cards (ATC) in the following challenges:

  1. Crafting-with-friends - Anything goes
  2. Simply papercrafts for all occassions - Anything goes
  3. Wicked wednesday atc - Something quirky - I think they are pretty all quirky maybe except for the time one... 
That's it for me!!!  Have fun everyone!!!

Lumberlife - Karleigh Sue style

Hello everyone!  There's a brand new release over at Karleigh Sue and I decided ot play with the great Lumberlife as my 1st post on this great release!

I had lots of fun making this while over at my weekend away with my friend Erin.   BTW this is a page in the middle of my journal but I'm opening it totally so that I can keep this up and standing and not show the other page :)  Just thought I would tell you all because I have been getting a lot of comments on how my book cover is awesome for other journaling pages that I have shared... and I definitely do no have that many journals lol

Anyway back to my post.  This weekend I was all about using my cut out magazines.  I've been accumulating them and I don't know but this weekend was about doing collage!  And I have to admit to LOVING doing this.
So the background are magazine pages.  I used paper pieces of the bag that the wine was put in (you can't have a crafty weekend without wine!!!).  And I handwrote the sentiment that I had found online.  I tore the papers up to make it more fun.  The image was colored with my copics.

I really love how it ended up!  No idea that it would be this way... but I couldn't imagine drawing a wood behind her...

I'm entering this journal page in the following challenges:

  1. Inspiration destination challenge blog - Anything goes
  2. Rubys rainbow - Anything but a card
  3. Kraftin kimmie stamps - Anything goes
  4. Deep ocean challenge blog - Metal or wood - I have pictures of wood all over the bottom of the journaling page, plus technically the paper is from wood lol - yeah... I know far fetched
  5. ttcrd - Anything goes
That's it for me for today!!!  Hope you have enjoyed this!!!
