Supplies used for the Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial.

Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial

Begin by adhering scraps of book pages, hymnals etc to a 12 x 12 sheet of Scrapbook paper. Turn the pages in different directions, don’t worry about if it is upside down, just have fun adhering the paper. I used the Glue Sponge container and a foam brush. Use what you feel works best for you. This is my version of a Franken Page foundation.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialLay stencils over the new Franken page and add color with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial

Stamp various images on top of the new Franken page base. Rotate the stamps so that these are going in different directions. It’s okay if the image doesn’t come out perfect, this is a background and we are just creating interest.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialOnce the stamping is done add stitches. For this session, I used a zig zag stitch, but you can use a straight stitch or other decorative stitches. Have fun adding stitches.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialCut the Franken Page down for journal cards. In this case, I cut mine at 3 x 4 inches. If using a 12 x 12 sheet as the foundation there can be 12 journal card bases made.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialBegin adding bits of lace and papers. I like to add color to ivory and/or white lace pieces with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. This way I don’t have to have a bunch of colors of lace I can keep that stash smaller and use the Tattered Angels as it has a wider variety of uses than a piece of colored lace.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialThe Best Glue Ever is perfect when paired with the No-Clog Writing Cap for getting glue placed precisely. I like to add it to smaller bits so that they don’t lift from the project.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialUse Distress ink around the edges of the papers. It gives more depth to the project. Use those tools that you own. I’ve had my Silhouette Cameo 3 for almost two years and I love using it for a variety of projects. Like the little words, I add to my projects.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialAdding flat back rhinestones with Embellie Gellie makes it so easy. Before I would have rhinestones go flying when I used tweezers. Collaged Journal Cards TutorialDid you enjoy the Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial? Making your own collaged journal cards is easy if you just relax and let things fall into place. Don’t over think. Lay out a few items and play around with placement. If you don’t like it then change it up. Sometimes I’ll lay things out and then walk away and do other things. When I come back it becomes clear how it should be put together. Have fun and don’t stress. 😉

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

Sharing a Glue Sponge Container Tutorial. This is a small vessel that holds a sponge and white glue to help with adhering papers together, especially when doing collage.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

Super quick Glue Sponge Container Tutorial Video.

Supplies used for the Glue Sponge Container Tutorial.

I used a container I had on hand for this project. The key is to make sure that it is airtight so the glue won’t dry out.

Cut the sponge if necessary to fit inside the container. Some containers may require three layers of sponges, some only one.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

Place the first sponge into the container and add just a little water, about a tablespoon amount. Then pour the Aleene’s Tacky glue over the sponge. Layer with additional sponges in the same manner.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

I used the water because Aleene’s Tacky glue is very thick and I wanted it to have a little help to soak into the sponge.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

After every use, I add a layer of glue on top before closing the container. This ensures that there is plenty of glue for the next project.

Hopefully, you found value in this Glue Sponge Container Tutorial and will make your own.

International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages

It is another round of the International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages. The first round I shared back in January. The swap is hosted by Ayala Art -ilove2paint, she created a Facebook group for those that were playing to communicate with each other. In this round, there are 10 people creating crazy art journal pages.

International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages

Here is a video showing how I created my International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages.

The supplies used for the International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages.

International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages

This time when I made my crazy pages I really stuck to the idea that these were to be backgrounds for other artists to use. By mixing paper, paint, stencils, rubber stamps and more I think I created a cool background that the others can use as a base for their artwork.

What I want everyone to know about this process is to have fun! Try not to overthink when putting down paper, stamps, and paint. Just have fun and play. When we become adults for some reason we stop playing. We forget how much fun it is just to goof off with art supplies not worrying about what we create.

International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages

I hope that you are inspired to sit and play for a little while today. Even if it is only for 5 or 10 minutes.  Grab some scrap paper, glue, scissors, and play, Grab some paper, paint and make finger paintings. Just enjoy the moment and don’t “THINK” about what will happen when you are done. Live in the moment.

Make sure that you visit all the other artists in this swap. There are some very creative people.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Hello friends, today I’m sharing a Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial. If you love Artist Trading Cards then you will also love artist trading coins. These coins measure 2.50 inch in size and are circles. These coins make great embellishments, trade items, and gifts. Could also make these into magnets. There really isn’t a limit.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial Video.

Supplies used for the Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial.

Process for the Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial. Begin by adding ink to the edges of the 2.5 inch round cardstock pieces. Then flip over one and apply a bead of the Best Glue Ever around the edge. Set aside to dry for about 15 to 20 minutes until the glue is clear.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Apply ink to the edges of the digital image that was cut at 2.25 inches. Then apply the Best Glue Ever to the back of the image and attach to the second of the two and a half inch circle. Tip: Apply a small drop of the Best Cleaner ever to the pin for the lid of the No Clog Writing Cap, this will give added protection against the tip clogging.

Put a few drops of glitter paint over the flower images and spread with a paint brush. This gives a pretty touch of glitter that isn’t overpowering. Clean the brush with the Best Cleaner Ever and rinse with water.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Once the Best Glue Ever has become clear on the 2.50 inch circle apply lace. Make sure to pleat the lace, even if it is gathered. This will help the lace curve around the circle and give it a full look.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Spray the lace disk with Glimmer Mist of choice and allow to dry. Can use a heat tool to dry, but make sure not to get the tool to close to the lace.

Apply the Best Glue ever to the back of the digital image disk and sandwich the lace between the two disks. Add zig-zag stitches to hold all the layers and to add more interest.

Use a paper punched bird as embellishment and attach with the Best Glue Ever.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Add a drop of the Best Glue Ever using the No Clog Writing Cap to the eye area of the punched shape.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

With the help of Embellie Gellie placing a flat back rhinestone for the eye is an easy task.

Lace Artist Trading Coin TutorialThese are super easy and fun to make. I ended up making two sets of six Lace Artist Trading Coins.

Miniature Envelope Tutorial

Miniature items are so fun to see and to make. Today I’m sharing a Miniature Envelope Tutorial, using old book pages and scrapbook paper I show how to make miniature envelopes cut with a Cricut Explore Air.

Miniature Envelope Tutorial

Miniature Envelope Tutorial Video.

Supply list for the Miniature Envelope Tutorial.

Miniature Envelope Tutorial

This Miniature Envelope Tutorial is an easy one. Begin by selecting different pages out of old books. Look for a variety of text size, and age of papers.

Adhere the book pages to the back of a piece of scrapbook paper. The design on the other side will be the inside of the envelope or the liner. I have found that having a little glue pot helps with adhering the pages.

Once the papers have been adhered to the scrapbook page allow to dry completely. If the page is still wet when placed in the Cricut the paper will tear, I show that result on the video.

Cut the envelopes out of the new paper. In my case, I used a Cricut Explore Air. Don’t have an electronic paper cutter? Find an envelope and reduce on a copier or find a template online and print the size you want.

Fold the envelopes use a bone folder to get the flaps to lay flat. Apply distress inks around the edges on the inside and outside.

Punch a tiny heart out of a scrap of the main paper used to create the envelopes. Apply distress ink around the edges then adhere with the Best Glue Ever to the envelope front.

Stamp images for the inside, or cut scraps of paper to fit inside as tiny journal cards.

Miniature Envelope Tutorial

Use a very small piece of Embellie Gellie on the flap of the envelope to hold the envelope closed. Insert the tiny journal cards into the envelope.

Apply a tiny drop of the Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap on the heart. Use Embellie Gellie to pick up a flat back rhinestone and place on the glue.

Miniature Envelope Tutorial

Aren’t these super cute? See, wasn’t that an easy Miniature Envelope Tutorial? These miniature envelopes measure 1.75 inches by 1.5 inches.

Want a few for yourself? I have sets of four in my shop.

Rose Stamp Tutorial

Today I’m sharing a Rose Stamp Tutorial. In this tutorial, I’ll show how I made my own stamp and then used it to decorate a junk journal page. Making a stamp like this is easier than you think. If you can find a silhouette image that is easy to cut out of craft foam then you too can make a custom stamp for your projects.

Rose Stamp TutorialRose Stamp Tutorial

Supply List for the Rose Stamp Tutorial

Begin by selecting an image that is bold and easy to cut apart. Apply the Best Glue Ever to the back in a very thin coat. I used my finger. Lay this aside to air dry for a few minutes.

Rose Stamp Tutorial Rose Stamp Tutorial

Cut cardboard squares to be slightly larger than the image. In my case, these were 4 inch squares and I used four layers to make it sturdy.

Rose Stamp Tutorial

Adhere the image to the craft foam and cut apart the image. Having a second copy of the image will help you keep things in order. When a piece is cut out, lay on top of the copy.

Rose Stamp Tutorial

Glue the pieces to the cardboard block. Tip – Start in the middle and work your way to the outside. On mine, I started on one side and ended up having to change the image because I ran out of room for the pieces.

Rose Stamp TutorialRose Stamp Tutorial

Apply acrylic paint with a foam brush to the stamp in an even coat. Stamp on the desired surface.

The key is to have fun making your own stamp. This is a great way to do something custom that you won’t see in a store.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals

Making a junk journal that is more masculine than the others can be hard. What theme should be used? Would a man really like this type of journal? Pulling the Rt 66 Digital Journal Kit and some Pin Ups from Calico Collage got the idea for a Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals set. My thoughts were, some men and a few ladies would collect Pin Up girl trading cards or images and they could be traveling on Route 66 to collect these images. Hope you like my idea.

When I first decided to make the Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals I thought I was only going to make one. But with all the beautiful Pin Up Girl images I just had to make four junk journals.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals

These journals measure 5.5 x 8.0 inches and have 10 sheets folded in half to make 40 pages. The cover is three layers of paper. A brown grocery sack was used along with cardstock and the digital image. There are two pockets on the cover.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists were applied to many of the pages. Some using the Lace Stencil I made and some just with the spray.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk JournalsSave those old Atlus Maps. I was lucky that my brother found an old city street map book. These make great foundation pages in a junk journal. The corner pocket is from the 7gypsies Gypsy Mixed Media Pad – American Vintage.

Franken pages also appear in these Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals. Using the Tim Holtz pocket die, paper bag from Canvas Corp Brands, Pin Up girl ATC images, burlap, stamps and more to finish the page.

One Fine Day Prayer Journal

Hello and welcome to my blog today. I’ve been busy working on a set of 5 junk journals. This time I decided that the theme would be One Fine Day Prayer Journal. Using Calico Collage’s Digital Journal Kit – One Fine Day, stamps, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Stencils, Pages out of an old Bible, Napkins, Lace, Trims, Fabric and my sewing machine.

One Fine Day Prayer Journal

Flip through video One Fine Day Prayer Journal.

There are ten sheets of paper folded to make 40 pages for this 5.5 x 8.5 inch journal. While I used the same digital images from Calico Collage to make 5 One Fine Day Prayer Journals, each one is similar but slightly different.

Supplies Used for the One Fine Day Prayer Journal.

When I got started making the One Fine Day Prayer Journal I thought I would make one. But then I got carried away when printing and ended up printing enough to make five journals. These are listed in my store.

One Fine Day Prayer JournalUsing lace, trims, and fabric from my stash was a lot of fun. Love how the stitching looks on the elements and pages.

Tattered Angles Glimmer Mists was used on almost all of the pages in the One Fine Day Prayer Journal.

Being able to use stamps is a lot of fun for me. Since I have so many stamps in my collection it feels good to get them out and use them in projects like this for the One Fine Day Prayer Journal.

On the video, I said dictionary pages were used, but it was pages from an old family bible that I found at a thrift store. The bible had been damaged and written upon. I thought it was perfect to use for pages and elements for the One Fine Day Prayer Journal.

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.

Bird ATC Tutorial

Video Bird ATC Tutorial.

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.
