Inspirational Quote

Day 14 of 30 days of Thankful 2018

What I wrote for Day 14 of 30 days of Thankful 2018.

The loss of an unborn child was the most painful experience of my life and it happened twice for me.

At the time it was devastating to me and Henry. I wasn’t sure how I could go forward. But God provided comfort and took me away from that dark time.

This experience helped me to have compassion for others. to help others through their experience. It does get better. It takes time to heal.

The experience of loss helped me become a better person and I’m thankful that I learned and grew despite the tragic loss of an unborn child.

May you never have to go through this painful experience in your life. If you do, know that you can get through it, one day at a time. You are loved.

Don’t forget that when you watch the YouTube video you can click on the gear in the lower right corner and speed up to 2 times the speed to get through the video faster.

Supplies used in the YouTube Live with Linda Create and Chat video.

For this set of journal cards, I cut cardstock down to about 5.5 x 4.25 in size. Then adhered a few gel print images randomly on top. The Calico Collage digital images were then adhered on top of the gel prints.  On a few of the cards, I used the large No-Clog Writing cap on a bottle of black acrylic craft paint to make marks.YouTube Live with Linda Create and Chat

The following cards were made using 5.5 x 4.25 cardstock bases with Gel Prints attached on top. The mat for the Calico Collage Digital image was painted with acrylic paint.

If you don’t have a certain color of paper you can paint it with acrylic paint. I love this look as it ties everything together and looks handmade.YouTube Live with Linda Create and Chat YouTube Live with Linda Create and Chat YouTube Live with Linda Create and ChatBeing able to use the Gel Prints from a couple of my play sessions makes me feel good. I love all the unusual prints and backgrounds that I created. Some of the gel prints I scanned into my computer so I could reprint those as often as I like. These may become digital downloads in my shop soon too.

Get out those supplies and make something today. Hope you will come to the next YouTube Live event on Monday, November 19, 2018, at 3:45 pm Central Standard Time. I’ll be creating an advent junk journal at the event.

Mixed Media Flip Tag Book Inspiration

Sharing a Mixed Media Flip Tag Book Inspiration this is a prompt that was given to us by the Facebook Group Junk Journal Junkaholics. Paulie the owner of the group shares a prompt in the group for us to make a project and then on Sunday night of that week we are to post in the group with Tag You’re It. It’s a fun way to share projects and I decided to play along this week.

Mixed Media Flip Tag Book Inspiration

Mixed Media Flip Tag Book Inspiration video

Supplies used and tutorial for Mixed Media Flip Tag Book Inspiration

Let me tell you about this Mixed Media Flip Tag Book Inspiration. Started with a 12 x 12 plain cardstock paper, collaged scraps of dictionary and bible pages adhered all over randomly.

Applied acrylic craft paint with an old gift card in random spots.

Mixed Media Flip Tag Book Inspiration

Used the Moroccan Stencil with Blarney Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

Stamped several BLine Design stamps using Brilliance Graphite Black Ink all over the page.

 

Cut into 2-inch strips. First cut a 4 x 12-inch strip from the top, sub cut into 8 x 4 inch, sub cut 2 x 8. With the remaining 12 x 8-inch piece, into 2-inch strips. Cutting the paper will then create eight 2 inch pieces.

Adhere two strips back to back, repeat. You will now have two 2 x 8 inch back to back units.

Mixed Media Flip Tag Book Inspiration

 

 

Create two pockets out of an old book page or scrap of paper 2 x 2.25 inches. Spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist using the same Moroccan Stencil. Adhere one pocket per a strip unit using the Best Glue Ever with the Large No-Clog Writing Cap by ScraPerfect. Basically, we are making two units that look alike.

Create a little booklet using strips of graph paper to find inside pocket 1.25 x 3.25 inches with a scrap of fabric sewn at the top. Could also use a stapler through the fabric or a scrap of paper.

Select Calico Collage images and create mats slightly larger. Paint the mats with matching colors, this is a great tip if you don’t have the same color of paper, just make your own. Adhere one image on the pocket over a scrap of lace and another higher up on the tag. Adhere a few words.

Mixed Media Flip Tag Book Inspiration

Cut a strip of graph paper 1.75 x 7.5 inches long. Lay stencil down and spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, then use the strips to mop up the mists. Adhere the strips to the back of the tag units.

Stamp a butterfly in the lower portion and apply words.

You should now have two units that look the same, maybe has different images but the same concept for each. Lay the strip with the pocket facing up on the left, then lay the strip with the graph paper on the right. Match the top (two-inch side) and butt up together leaving about a 1/8 gap. Adhere a strip of fabric to attach the two units together. Flip over and repeat.
