It’s the Handmade For Holidays Release at Taylored Expressions🎄

Hello friends!  I’m so excited to share the “Handmade for the Holidays” release at Taylored Expressions today!  You can go check out all the things right now in the store!  I’m extra excited that I get to be apart of this special release with them as a guest designer too!  (This was for my win during the TE 13th birthday celebration challenges I had entered from last month!🎉 Yay!)  There will also be a huge post about it on the Taylored Expressions Blog too!  I really hope that you enjoy the projects I’ve made to share with you and if you stop by the store, please let Taylor know that I sent you! 

For my first set of projects, I’ve made a fun Christmas décor item that you can gift for the Holidays, use as a center piece for your table setting, etc.  I’ve taken the Taylored Expressions (new) Accordion Tree die and used it to make a trio of trees with the “poinsettia style” attached to the accompanying TE Tree Stumps (sold separately) to go with this die and another two trees without the stumps.  For the trio of trees, I’ve used the  Merry Blooms Stamps, Stencil & Clear Combo set to create a background over a Toffee cardstock base inking and blending with Sweet Basil, Cherry Pop and Mulled Wine inks.  I’ve also used the same products to make the tag as well.  I’ve gold heat embossed the centers for the poinsettias in the background.  I’ve also taken the TE (new) Itty Bitty Sentiments Holiday stamp set and used the tiny images from the set to create backgrounds for the other two trees.  I’ve splattered the tree backgrounds as well as the tag background with acrylic white and gold paints. These die cut trees were glued back to back with the score line in the center as a guide which makes them 3D looking.  I’ll explain each item below:

This was such a fun 3D project to create!  I wanted all the trees together in one piece, so I thought it would be fun to grab one of these wood slices I’ve been hoarding forever and glue the trees to this base.  There is an accordion star that comes with the accordion tree die, but I thought it would be fun to take the TE Perfect Poinsettia die and cut out several of the smallest bloom to make that the “star topper” for the poinsettia tree.  I’ve used the coordinating stamps to stamp the “veins” and gold heat embossed the centers for them.  I folded them in half and glued it to the top of the tree.  I also attached some TE Gold Drip Drops for the “ornaments” over the tree (TE Drip Drops make perfect “ornaments” for these trees!) and added some gold twine bows front and back.  I’ve ink blended the edges of the poinsettia tree with Toffee ink and gold paint sponged on the poinsettia topper.

This is what the other side (back) of this piece looks like…so it’s visible from all angles.  Here you can better see the other two trees and how the backgrounds were made.  I’ve also added some thick white paint to the edges of them to make it look more like “snowed over” trees especially since they were splattered with white paint.  For the wood slice that the trees are attached to, I’ve used some Ranger Mica Flakes for a bit of sparkle attaching it with Multi-Medium Matte glue.

For the tag, I’ve die cut the background explained above with the TE Stacklets 2 die and wrapped some gold twine around it with the TE (new) Itty Bitty Sentiments & Tags Holiday set for the little tree with the gold heat embossed sentiment over it.  I’ve also gold heat embossed the large sentiment from the Joyful Season stamp set & dies that I’ve popped with my favorite product TE Sticky Strips.  I’ve cut out another layering piece behind the tag with Sweet Basil cardstock, punched a hole and added more gold twine.

And how stinkin’ CUTE are these guys?!  This is my second set of projects for this release using the NEW TE Snow Squad Dies & Clear Stamp Combo set.  As you can see, the cute die cut critters are made to perfectly fit the Tag Stacklet dies!  I’ve the Tag Stacklet 2 die set for my sweet penguin!  The critters are so easy to cut out and decorate them as you like!  I like that the clear stamp set comes with it to stamp in the eyes as those tiny dots can be so hard to deal with and loose!  You get a penguin, a polar bear and a snowman with this die set!

Again, I thought it would be fun to create a background for my card and tag set, so this time, I’ve taken the TE Let It Snow Layering Stencil set for a snowy background.  I’ve started with a Mint Julep cardstock base, blended the same color ink for the first layer, Sugar Cube ink for the second layer and for the third layer, I’ve used some TE Glitter Grab and immediately covered it with some TE Silver Glitter.  Love how it turned out with the subtle color! 

Starting with my card details, I’ve decided to give the snow squad critters soft colors with their scarves.  The clear stamp set with the dies also come with a two line image for adding details to the scarf, so I silver heat embossed those and then added some matching TE Tiny Diamonds Pastel in between those lines.  They matched up perfectly!  I inked around the edges of each die cut piece for the critters and stamped the face images including the cheeks which I off-stamped first to keep them light.  I used a white gel pen for highlight details.

I thought it would be fun to have these Snow Squad critters pop out from a snow drift, so I took some TE Sugar Cube Glitter Cardstock and cut out a “snow drift” with a piece of the their scarves over it and popped them up over the snowy background I’ve created using a TE Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets for the stitching details behind them which was layered over an A2 sized Sugar Cube top folding card base.  For the sentiment, I silver heat embossed it from the TE Winter Wishes clear stamp set over a Mint Julep cardstock that was cut out using the TE Stitched Banner Stacklets die

And of course I had to use the penguin again for my coordinating tag!  I’ve used part of the same background I’ve made for the card and cut it out using the TE Tag Stacklets 2 die set with another Sugar Cube cut out for the layering base.

I did the same thing for this tag that I did for the card above with the snow drift, but I also added a tiny tag that he’s holding with some Doodlebug Gray Twine.  The tag was created with the same TE (new) Itty Bitty Sentiments & Tag Holiday sets.  I’ve stamped the row of tiny trees from the set with the Mint Julep ink and then silver heat embossed the sentiment above it.  I’ve also used more of the TE Tiny Diamonds Pastel for the center of the bow on the present along with the penguin’s scarf.  I’ve punched a hole at the top and added more of the same twine at the top.

So how about you?!  Are you ready for the up-coming Holiday Season?  I sure hope that I was able to bring you some inspiration with your handmade projects for the Holidays!  Again, you can check out all of the brand new Taylored Expressions products in the store as it’s now been released!  Be sure to check out all of the wonderful inspiration on her blog HERE too!

Bright Floral AJ Fun🌸

Hello friends! We’re now on Friday and the last one of the month at that! Summer is now coming at us! I always look forward to being outdoors and spending time in the sun and enjoying the flowers…how about you?

Speaking of flowers, I wanted to share an Art Journal page that I had completed from a class that I took in March. It was really fun as I haven’t done any AJ pages at all since the previous blog platform that I was on! I remember that I had made several of them and was going to put them all together to make my own book. This process really made me remember how much I’ve missed doing it:

Doodling is not something that I’ve ever felt really comfortable with, so when the class offered up a way to trace a basic flower pattern, I did that. However, with all of the “lines” you can see within those flowers and me extending the petals and such, you can see that I really got into the doodling process once I got going that is! LOL!

First, I wanted to make sure that this AJ page had the binder holes punched in them to add to my book, so I did that with a 9″ x 6″ piece of watercolor paper (I cut one of the 9″ x 12″ pieces in half to get two AJ pages) and then I took my Zig Kurtake Tambi watercolor set and a big brush to watercolor over the paper.

This is where I traced the basic flower pattern (from class) over the dried piece. From there, I took some black gesso and painted the background around the flowers. This REALLY made the colors pop! This is where I took my Micron pens and white gel pen to really doodle around the flowers.

I even took a few sentiment stamps from the Impression Obsession Words For Art and stamped on a couple of the petals with Archival Jet Black ink.

I think it’s just one of those things you start doing and then don’t know when to stop the doodling! It was just tons of fun and glad that I was brave enough to try it AND get going on some AJ pages!

I hope you’ve enjoyed it too and I hope to do more! Lots of fun things coming, so I will be seeing you soon my friends!!😉 Thanks for dropping in!

‘Create’ Steampunk Mixed Media Canvas

Hello friends!  Happy Saturday!

Oh I had so much FUN playing around with all of the really cool “Steampunk” products!  Today, I’m sharing this mixed media canvas project that I made:

Vicki-BM-SteampunkCanvas

This was so much fun to just get “messy” and enjoy a different creative process other than making a card!  If you’ve been around my blog for a while, then you’ve probably seen me share a different project from time to time.  Sometimes I just like to ‘change gears’!  Hahaha!

So I had this old 8″ x 10″ canvas laying around and thought it would be cool to take several chipboard pieces I had and make something.  I started off by taking some wooden letters from my stash and gluing those on.  I then took a stencil (gears) and randomly added embossing paste through it over the canvas.  Once dried, I then painted over everything with some black gesso.

I’ve used several metallic paints from my stash and using my “finger tool” I went over all of the textured areas of the canvas and along the edges.  I also used the paints to paint over the Chipboard Gear Background which was randomly cut out with my scissors and glued randomly over the canvas.  At first I was thinking it was weird to mix the different color metallic together, but then thought that steampunk can sort of be like that anyway.

Vicki-BM-SteampunkCanvas3

What’s hard to capture in a photo is that Gilded Sparkle embossing powder over the wings!  It’s stunning IRL!  I’ve heat embossed the Chipboard Wings with it and then I heat embossed the Chipboard Key with the EP.  I went around the edges of it with some silver metallic paint so that it showed up better against the black background.

For the image, I stamped the hat with black Ink onto an already cut out white Cardstock from the Steampunk Cut file.  I colored it up with several different Aqua Pigments and sponged around the edges of it with some brown ink.  I also took some Copper metallic paint and went around the edges too.  I took the heat embossed wings along with that hat image and splattered them with some black paint as well.

The wings were attached onto the canvas with some black foam tape and then I curled the ends of them that are hanging off the edges.  I attached the heat embossed key in the center of the wings and then added the colored image over top.

Vicki-BM-SteampunkCanvas1

For a little bit more texture on the canvas, I decided to take the EP to randomly heat emboss areas that were sprayed with water.  The water was just so that the powder had something to stick to and then once heat set, I added more until I was happy with it.  I like the look of the embossing where the spray marks are.

Vicki-BM-SteampunkCanvs4

Lastly, to finish it off, I’ve used the metal gears, ribbon (tied in bow over top of the key), gold pearls (painted in copper metallic paint), and sequins – as well as another gear (attached in the center of the ribbon bow) and a clock button (painted with black and metallic paints) from my stash that was all glued on.  I also added some silver glitter to the center of each sequins.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my “Steampunk Mixed Media Canvas” today and were inspired in some way.

Thanks for dropping by!  I’ll see you soon!

Crafty Retreat Results

Hello friends!  I finally found the time to make a post and gather all of my photos together so that I can share a post with you from last week’s “Crafty Retreat” that I went to at my friend’s house.  I’ve pretty much known the “host lady” and her family since I was a little child, so they’re pretty much friends of the family with me. 🙂

I actually had forgotten to take my own photos except for a few on the second day during the day I taught a class, but I was able to get a few photos from others to share.  (You know how it goes when everyone is moving about or you’re working on something or teaching and forget to take photos!  LOL)

So the “theme” for the crafty retreat was called “Hats off to Painting!”  The majority of the group likes to tole paint, but we all (including myself) like to try our hands at many other crafting avenues to try different products that we may not be familiar with…so there are some “mixed” projects today I’m sharing!  I had such fun during the entire 3 days!

Here we are with our decorated hats on for a group photo!  Even little ‘Gizmo’ had his hat on, but not sure he was feeling the fun like the rest of us! LOL! (Unfortunately the host was taking the photo!)  We all had our Dick Blick aprons and shirts on which was very kindly donated for our “Painting Divas” group…they were VERY generous with the bag of goodies they gave us!  We had all 3 days worth of fun, classes and prizes!

20190501_141117

So, the reason for all of the fun crafty hats is that we were to take a hat and decorate it for a challenge.  Here is a photo of all of our hats.  There were some really fun and creative ideas as you can see!  One of the girls was quite tired from all of the crafting and decided to take a little siesta during the festivities!  LOL!  It was very cool that I was the winner voted for my created hat design.  (You can see on the table above and here’s a closer look below):

Vicki-Sreampunk Hat

I guess it’s a bit hard to see in the photo above of me wearing it, but I had hubby bring home one of his hard hats from work along with a pair of goggles and then I went to decorating it in “steampunk” style!  I had fun with it and enjoyed the process!

Vicki-Configuration Spell BookVicki-Configuration Spell Book open

Here is the altered “Potions and Spells” book that I taught for the class!  Last year at the “Crafty Retreat” they saw my “altered book” that I had previously made during my time as a Splitcoaststampers.com “Dirty Dozen” DT member and asked if I could teach how to make one for this year’s class.  So instead of the “altered book” idea, I had them all use a Tim Holtz Configuation Book.

20190501_132745

Here are some of the book covers all lined up that we were waiting on to dry before we were able to start painting them.  A couple of the book covers were left at the work table, but while those were drying, we worked on the inside of the book.

20190501_175745

Here’s another photo of me standing there holding one of the books and everyone was finished with their books looking at them at the end of class.  They seemed to really enjoy this messy project!  I just loved teaching these fun ladies too!

Vicki-Santa Gourd Ornament Class

This is from my mom’s class where she taught us this cute Santa ornament that we painted on a gourd!  He makes me giggle!   I love it!

Vicki-PenguinChill Class

The host lady is the one that taught this cute penguin class!  I adore penguins and I’m so happy that I took the time to finish this up when I got home!  (More details and a 3D look at these projects are in the video above.)

I really hope that you’ve enjoyed all of these projects as much as I enjoyed creating them!  I also had another set of calendars that I finished, but I’ll share on another post on another day as this one is pretty full!!  LOL!

One more thing to share is that we have a robin’s nest with one little blue egg inside.  We have a a Prairie Fire Crab Apple tree in our backyard full of pretty blooms and I guess the robin thought it was a nice place to make a nest…so we’ll wait and see if there is a baby bird coming soon!

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all of you moms out there!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you soon!!

Mixed Media Wall Hanging for Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hello friends!  I’m back again to share a mixed media wall plaque that I’ve made with several Sparkle N Sprinkle products:

vicki-vaseofflowers-wallhanging-project3

It’s been a while since I’ve made any mixed media projects, so it was nice to be able to “get messy” and use some media products that I don’t pull out often enough!  (Please check the end of this post and/or for a full detailed tutorial on how I’ve made this project, please visit me over on the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog post here! – Thank you for your kind support!)

So I started out the image panel thinking I was going to make a card with it, but then it felt like it was too large, so I decided I was going to make a Vintage style wall plaque with it instead!  I had this plaque hanging around my room for about a year knowing that at some point I wanted to do something with it, so this felt like the opportunity I needed to get a project going.

vicki-vaseofflowers6

I’ve used a January release stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Vase of Flowers stamp set.  I colored it with Copic markers except for the pink flowers and buterflies.  I covered the flowers with the Pink Fizz glitter and the butterflies with the Canary flocking.  I cut out the image panel with the Tonic Loopy Lace Oval Die and added it to a piece of cardstock that was covered with the Super Adhesive Sheets.  I then covered the entire panel with the same Pink Fizz glitter and burnished into the background.

vicki-vaseofflowers7

Shown at a different angle, you can see allof the dimension and detail of the design.

I have also covered the flowers using some SNS Brushable Glue and brushing it over top in certain areas over the flowers and then I sprinkled some Diamond Dust glitter over top of them.

Anything Goes for Cute Card Thursday!

Hello friends!  Hope you had an amazing Christmas and Santa brought you everything you’ve wished for!  It’s always a fun time of year to celebrate with family and friends!

Today is Thursday which means a brand new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday!  Another easy theme of “Anything Goes” for this week!  Looking forward to seeing what you’ve been crafting through the Holiday Season!

Sometimes I like to try out working with different media that I don’t normally always use on my creations, so for this one I’ve pulled out my watercolor:

Vicki-CCT562-watercolor winter hats

I have used one of the prints from Simon Says Stamp Suzy’s Winter Warmth Watercolor Prints.  I’ve decided to use my Kuretake Gansia Tanbi Watercolor set with a #4 and #8 Silver Brushes to color the complete panel.

For a little bit of “snow splatter”, I took some white Folk Art Mixed Media acrylic paint spray around the edges of the dried watercolor piece. (Something new and fun for me to try out with this too!)

To finish up the design, I added some doodling in a couple of areas with my white gel pen and then attached the entire panel onto a white A2 sized top folding card base and rounded the corners of it with a corner chomper.

It was simple, but a fun card to make.  Because SOMETIMES, you just need to take time to chill and have fun coloring or playing around with different media, right?!  🙂

Hope you will stop by the Cute Card Thursday challenge and check out the inspiration from the rest of the team and add your creation in the gallery too!  Thanks so much for dropping in today and I’ll see you soon!

Crafting Retreat Hang-over Plus ICAD Week 7

Hello friends!  Oh no…It’s been a week since my last posting!  I have a “crafting hang-over” if there is such a thing! LOL!  There were so many things to get done after my 3 day crafting stint and I just couldn’t get it all in!  I ran out of steam!

For my 3 day crafting event, it was a local friend who puts together 3 days full of classes, prizes and food!  They mostly get involved with painting because there are 3 of them there (including my mom) that are very talented advanced tole painters.  This is something that I’m slowly learning how to do with the help of my mom.  It’s fun to be able to spend time with her doing something she enjoys and I get to learn a new craft too!  Don’t worry, I am still a true blue stamper to the end! 🙂  But since it was mostly painting, I brought my painting supplies with me and not my stamping supplies.  I even taught a class with my mom and here’s my version of the mixed media sample we taught for class:

Vicki-Halloween-AlteredBottle

There are several people that enjoy making Halloween projects there, so mom and I came up with this fun altered mixed media bottle with a glow-in-the-dark window and green ooze bubbling out the top with some flying bats coming out!

Mom had her idea all mapped out and sketched on a piece of paper and was having a hard time getting going with it.  So I asked her if I could take her sketch of what she wanted and give it a try.  At the time I started it, I had a Jack Daniels bottle to alter and went with that to follow her sketch.  The advantage that I had compared to everyone else is that I had four flat sides which made it a tad bit easier to attached items to it.  These girls were tough and creative and made it work and made it fun!  The window that I put on even glows in the dark with some special glow-in-the-dark embossing powder!  I then covered it with some glossy effects for a “window” look.  Of course my mom had special glow-in-the-dark paint and that’s what everyone in class used for their windows.  They are all so cool looking and I loved seeing all the different results!

Vicki-Halloween-Alteredbottle1

A closer look at the bottle and turned to the other side, you can see all of the texture that I attached to the bottle with the flowers, embossing paste, gears, bats, etc.  I was going for a steam punk look for the bottle portion (which is why I went over the texture with just a gold metallic texture paste.)  and I thought it would be cool to make the green goo coming out at the top, so that was fun to paint with a metallic green.  There were lots of little tips and tricks everyone learned along the way.  It was funny because everyone didn’t understand why they were painting over everything they worked so hard putting onto the bottle.  LOL!  After the texture paste, there was the excitement!

Vicki-Halloween-alteredbottle2

This is just another side view of the bottle with the added texture I’ve put on it.  I was able to collect some unique items for everyone’s bottle through my husband’s work in a manufacturing setting that had little metal pieces…no idea what they are, but it was something fun and unique to add texture to the bottle.  And of course I had gears, buttons, stencils with embossing paste, flowers, etc.  The windows and bats were all cut out with some dies that I had.  That window die is actually from Lawn Fawn!  The tiny bone sticking out on the window is of course Tim Holtz.

Painting Divas 2018

Here are some of the girls having fun with their bottles in class.  They are very intently working on getting their bottles just right! 🙂  Of course it’s hard to get everyone together at one time in a photo, but there were a couple more people there including myself not shown.

Painting Divas-2018-Doris-mixedmedia bottles

Here’s a look at the bottles from class!  I think everyone enjoyed this concept and I even had an additional bottle that I made they really enjoyed the other sample that I made too.  So I made a different theme on this one:

Vicki-Mermaidbottle-main

For those that are not Halloween fans, I showed them a completely different look with the bottle.  This is my “Mermaid bottle” that I’ve made with Patina Effect Texture Pastes and copper metallic paints.  I used some sea shells that I have along with some rope, beads, texture paste, cheese cloth and lots of other little tid bits I had on hand.  I  got a cork and used it for the top of the bottle and added a gem on top.  I really like how texturized the paste made the bottle look.

Vicki-Mermaidbotle1

Turning the bottle around, you can see more detail on the bottle along with the charm and tiny jar I have hanging down around the cork at the top.  I painted a silver mermaid charm with some Mermaid Sparkle metallic paint of course and then touched up the edges of it some copper texture paste.  For the bottle, I had a package of tiny bottles and I filled one with some blue sequins and made this tiny tiny label over vellum and attached it to the bottle.  It says “Mermaid Tears”.

Vicki-Mermaidbottle3

On the back side of the bottle, you can see that I’ve made a little “path” for the beads and sea shells to flow all the way around it.  I have taken a mermaid die cut and cut it out several times to create a dimensional look by adding several layers of cardstock together.  I had her sitting on top of one of the stone pieces I’ve attached to the bottle along with some gems above her for a “bubble” affect.  This mermaid die along with some of the stones, gems, pebbles, mermaid charm and the gem on top of the cork all came from a past card kit.

Vicki-Mermaidbottle2

And here is just another angle of the bottle before we come back to the front of it.  It just gives you a better idea of what all the dimension is on the bottle and how I’ve highlighted it with copper metallic paint.  I even had a little toy compass to attach to the front.  I had a piece of decorative paper from an older paper collection that I cut of piece of to attach to the front of the bottle and then wrapped the rope around it.  I gave it a bit of a white wash over it with paint so it fit with the theme of the bottle….old looking.

I also shared another mixed media project with them that I had done, but they wanted me to do it for class next year…so I guess I will be sharing it with you all then whenever we get together for that class! LOL!!  I’m sure I’ll be making another version of it in the meantime! 🙂

And finally, yes, when I got home I realized that I was behind on chores around the house as well as my ICAD challenge!  So I sat down yesterday to try and catch up with those so that I don’t get too far behind!  I’m happy to say that I’m all caught up and there is not many left to go either!  Another 2 weeks and it will be complete!

So here are the results of Week 7 ICAD:

Vicki-ICAD2018-Week7

With the theme and prompts given this last week, I didn’t expect mine to be as colorful as they are, but some of them turned out very colorful!  I also enjoyed playing with some things I rarely get out to play with!

So now you know what I’ve been busy with this past week and maybe you’ll excuse me not being around so much! 🙂  Hope you’ve enjoyed my mixed media projects.  I’d love to know what you think!  Have you ever tried mixed media?  Do you like the concept of it?  Just curious how many of you out there enjoy it!  Thanks for stopping in!
