Bird ATC Tutorial

Artist Trading Cards (ATC) is a great way to try out a technique and to have on hand to trade with other artists. Today I’m sharing a Bird ATC Tutorial. Think of these ATC’s as a mini work of art. There is no wrong way to decorate an ATC, The only rule is the size 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. Any medium can be used to create ATC’s today I’m showing how to use stamps and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

Supplies used for the Bird ATC Tutorial.

For this Bird ATC Tutorial, I began by cutting a piece of white cardstock to 2.25 x 3.25 inches. Using the Stamp Platform arrange the stamps and use the door of the platform to pick up the stamps.

Ink the stamps with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink and stamp card. Reapply ink if you didn’t get a good impression and stamp until you like the image on your card.

Then stamp the sentiment with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink. Stamp background with Distress Ink – Tea Dye.

Distress the edges of the card with the thread cutter or a distressing tool. Then using the Ranger Blending tool dipped into the Red Chillies Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists apply around the edge of the card.

Spray Red Chillies Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the white flower. Turn the flower over if you want to get full coverage on both sides. Dry with a heat tool or let air dry.

Bird ATC Tutorial

Apply Vintage Photo Distress ink to the Kraft ATC card edges with a Blending Tool.

Adhere the stamped card on the kraft ATC base with the Best Glue Ever.

Cut a piece of eyelash yarn and adhere with the Best Glue Ever. Add the flower on top of the eyelash yarn. The ATC is finished. If you are going to use this as a trading card then you can sign the back with your name, date made and any other information you want to share. I plan to pop this into a junk journal as another journal card.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this project and enjoyed the Bird ATC Tutorial.

Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Since I had a stack of stamps handy and some paper I thought I would share another stamping project. The result: Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial using various rubber stamps, vintage book pages, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, sewing machine and the Stamp Platform from Tim Holtz. These are super quick and easy to make!

Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Here is the video for the Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Supply list for the Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to distress paper is so easy. I like it a lot better than coffee dying paper. When I do a session of dying paper with coffee I tend to make a lot and then I have to find a place to store the papers. By using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist I can choose to make the cards when I want them and I don’t have to store dyed papers. I can change up the colors and make them any way I want.

Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Having the Stamp Platform by Tim Holtz makes this project so easy. I love using stamps and with the creation of clear mounted stamps, it is easy to load up a bunch of these stamps to make cool journal cards.

Test your stamps to make sure they are all the same thickness when mixing stamps from other stamp sets.

Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

I will place a card that I want to use in the stamp platform. Then arrange the stamps on the card, close the lid to the stamp platform so that the stamps will be picked up on the door. Make sure to use the magnets to keep your paper in place. Ink with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven as many times as necessary.

Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial

Mix up the surface of your journal cards, use plain cardstock and add some dictionary pages to others. If you have a sewing machine that is another touch that can be added. Sew a design around the edges.

Have fun using those rubber stamps and I hope you enjoyed seeing the Enjoy the Journey Stamped Journal Cards Tutorial today.

Stamped Altered Paperclip

Continuing with sharing how to use stamps in your journal cards, thanks to Naomi from FJJP for this prompt. Today I’m sharing a Stamped Altered Paperclip. Using book pages, stamps, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Distress Ink, Brutus Monroe Detail ink and ScraPerfect Best Glue ever I show how to make a super easy Stamped Altered Paperclip.

Stamped Altered Paperclip

Video Tutorial for the Stamped Altered Paperclip.

Supply List for the Stamped Altered Paperclip.

Since I already had the supplies gathered from making Stamped Journal Cards it was easy to begin making the Stamped Altered Paperclip. Using a page out of an old dictionary I cut it down to the size I want the top of the Stamped Altered Paperclip.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists became the ink for a block stamp that was applied to the dictionary page. Stamp the Bird in Brutus Monroe Detail Ink. Apply distress ink to the flower image and stamp on the dictionary page. Use Brutus Monroe Detail ink and stamp the postmark. Adhere the dictionary page to a scrap of cardstock to help make this sturdy as it will become a pocket.

Stamped Altered Paperclip

Fold the book page in half and half again. This is the base for the Stamped Altered Paperclip. Apply the Best Glue Ever on the first fold. Add a paperclip to the top of the page and glue shut.

Place the dictionary page pocket on the folded book page, adhering three sides leaving one side open for a journal card. Apply Best Glue Ever to the word after it has been distressed. Tuck the journal card into the pocket. An alternate look is to sew around the dictionary page before placing it on the book page base.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial Supply list

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial Video.

After collecting the items I attached the two sheets of watercolor paper together with washi tape on the back backside. This made a large sheet I could work on and then cut up later.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Stamp the images with Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven. Then adhere torn bits of the Damask Tissue paper and dictionary page.

Using the stencil made on the Cricut Explore Air I used the Chalk sprays to add color to the page.

Next applied the Glam and High Impact paint with some yellow acrylic paint with an old room key card in a random fashion.

Using a couple of stencils and gesso I then added a layer over the whole sheet.

Apply a little watered down glimmer mist or use a spray bottle of water then spray with Electric Blue Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist here and there.

Use PVA to attach the torn napkin all over.

Once this is dry – I used a heat tool to speed up the process. Apply the three different pink acrylic paints to create flowers around the torn napkin pieces. Creating whole new flowers.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Apply Cranberry Zing Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist with a paint brush over the flowers.

Seal the work with Krylon Matte Finish Spray – I took it outside as the fumes are not good to smell.

Then using a Pitt Pen made marks around the flowers to give more definition.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Remove the washi tape from the back and cut the two pages apart. Then cut down to 5 x 5.5 inch pieces.

I really love how these Mixed Media Crazy Pages turned out! There will be more I will be making! Soon I’ll show other projects using the scans I made of the pages.

Mixed Media Crazy Pages Tutorial

Take time to play with your art supplies. There is no wrong way to enjoy making something beautiful. Try new things and don’t worry about how it turns out. It might look like a hot mess at first, but keep playing and before you know it you have a wonderful work of art.

Tutorial Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card

Journal cards are a great way to add more journaling space inside a junk journal. This post includes a Tutorial Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card. Using Rubber Stamps, inks and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists I share how to decorate a guest check into a journal card.

Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card

Supplies used for Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card.

Video Tutorial Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card.

Decorating a guest check for a journaling card is really simple and fast. Since I had the Rose Post Card stamp it made the design easy. Take a look around for a postcard stamp that you could use for your project. Even a plain postcard image and then overstamped with flowers would look wonderful.

Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card

When I learned about the Fantastix I was opened up to another way to color images with ink pads that I own. I love the soft color that comes out from using the Fantastix. These tools work great with the Brutus Monroe Surface ink and the Tim Holtz Distress ink.

Blending the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink really helps give the guest check a vintage feel. It is easy to add a little or a lot to get the look you want.

Decorating a Guest Check Journal Card

Once all the coloring has been done I then love using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists over the guest check. The Precious Metal color has a soft pearl color that is very romantic to me.

Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

With the end of 2017 it is time to get a new planner for 2018 and I decided to make one. Sharing a Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal. This Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal is made using Digital Images from Calico Collage – Dragonfly Delight. A Dollar Tree planner, bullet journal and monthly dividers from a 2017 Happy Planner.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Collecting a few of the following for this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Here is a video Tutorial Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

To make this Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal I began with taking apart the bullet journal. This is where a Xacto knife comes in handy. When you locate the start of the signature it is easy to pull the book apart.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Next, take the staple out of the Dollar Tree Planner. Then cut the pages down the spine because this was a one signature book and the pages need to be broken up into a three signature book.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Composition book pages are sewn to the calendar side of the Happy Planner monthly tabs. The top and bottom are sewn down and that makes pockets on each page.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

When printing the Calico Collage Dragonfly Delight pages I print lines on the back side. Then use the handmade dragonfly stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the back side of the pages.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

While the stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists are out, apply to the bullet journal pages.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Use Distress Inks to stamp Dragonflies and quotes on the pages. I like how it adds another element to each page.

Acrylic paint was applied to the book pages with an old credit card. When the paint is spread thin with the card it allows the words to be faintly seen in the background. Stamp with Brutus Monroe Embossing ink and sprinkle with Brutus Monroe Gold embossing powder heat set.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

These new painted book pages were then folded on one side then sewn with a zigzag stitch. Now, these are new pockets for the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk JournalDragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Group the pages together. Paying attention to where the monthly tabs and the weekly planner pages fall in the Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Once all the pages have been arranged it is time to attach the planner pages. Using Washi tape either attach to a journal page or to a corresponding planner page. These new pages will then rest in the journal and can be bound to the cover.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

Making the cover is something I really enjoy. It makes me feel happy that this journal is almost complete. When the signatures are applied I will sometimes pet the journal. It makes me so happy.

Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal

As I sit and admire my journal it fills me with joy. This is MY Dragonfly Bullet Planner Junk Journal. I get to use this for the next year. Hopefully, I will enjoy every day I get to write inside.

Making Gingerbread Men

Welcome friends. Today I’m Making Gingerbread Men. Working on a Christmas Junk Journal and wanted some handmade elements added. This is where I use stamps I’ve had for years and some bling that I had leftover from another project.

Making Gingerbread Men

When I found the gingerbread man stamp in my stash, I knew I wanted to make these to add to the journal.

Items used for Making Gingerbread Men.
ScraPerfect – Best Glue Ever
Colored Pencils
Stamped image on Kraft paper with Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven
Flat back rhinestone
Distress ink – Vintage Photo
Blending tool

Here is a video showing Making Gingerbread Men.

For this project Making Gingerbread Men, I started with stamping the gingerbread men in Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven onto Kraft colored cardstock. Then I used my scissors to fussy cut the gingerbread men.

Making Gingerbread Men

Choosing a few color of pencils I then colored in the areas I wanted on the gingerbread men. Then I used Distress Ink – Vintage Photo around the edges.

Making Gingerbread Men

Sometimes it is hard to find the right glue to adhere items. The Best Glue Ever is perfect for these rhinestones as it doesn’t take very much and it holds quickly. Other glues the rhinestone would pop off the project. I just applied a small dot on the back of the rhinestone, used the tip of the glue to spread and then attached to the gingerbread men.

My hope is that I have inspired you to look differently at those items you have in your stash and use them in projects.
