Supplies used for the Stamped & Collage Journal Card Tutorial

This card started with a Kraft Card as the base. Stamping with a couple of images in different colors already gives this card a new life.

Stamped & Collage Journal Card Tutorial

Paper Punches are a great tool to use up those leftover bits and create shapes. Don’t have punches? Hand cut shapes. You can find shapes around the house and trace these onto the paper to get unique shapes for projects.

Adding a bit of torn paper to create a pocket is a cute way to add an additional element or journal card to a project. The pocket on this card could even hold a gift – money is always good. lol

Stamped & Collage Journal Card Tutorial

Play around with scraps and stamps and see what you can create. Try to use it all up instead of storing those leftovers. Every day I’m looking for ways to reduce my stash in art projects. I hope that this project gives you an idea or two to try.

What would you use if you were doing a Stamped & Collage Journal Card Tutorial like this one? Do you have a favorite shape, stamp set and leftover bits that come to your mind? I would love to know what you would use.

Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration

Another collaboration with other artists creating a Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration project. Four of us, Shel, Lena, Bea and myself are swapping postcards again with a summer theme.

Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration

The idea is that each of us would create a standard 4 x 6 postcard with a summer-themed background that the next artist could decorate as they wanted.

Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration

Here is a tutorial process video showing how I made my cards and then embellished all the cards. Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration Video.

Supplies Used for the Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration.

My postcards began with a 4 x 6 watercolor paper and a slew of Tattered Angels Products. I wanted to see if I could create a scene with the paints.

Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration

Using an old hotel key card I scraped paint onto the watercolor paper. Applied Glam with a paintbrush. Sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and used High Impact Paint as if it were rubber stamp ink.

Think outside the box when doing mixed media. That is the beauty of being able to do anything you want.

Once all the postcards arrived it was time to decorate. For this Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration, I wanted to use the same theme for each card if possible.

Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration

The idea was Pin Up Girls having fun in the sun. Using the digital images from Calico Collage was a great focal point for each postcard.

Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration

Doing this Summer Mixed Media Postcard Collaboration was so much fun. Even though we all did different backgrounds I feel that by using the same focal type of images made these a set.

Try your hand at making a few postcards and maybe even do a collaboration with a few art friends.

Make sure to check out the videos by the other artists.

Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial

One of my followers asked if I would share a Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial. So, that is what I’m sharing today. How to create a foundation card and then collage on top to make a really pretty journal card or could be a greeting card too.

Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial

Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial Video.

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. 😉

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.

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.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial

For the past few months, I’ve been working on and off on my new studio space. Today I thought I would share a Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial. Yes, I painted the carpet. It cost a lot less than replacing the flooring. And I think it looks awesome.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1

Video Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial.

This space, many years ago was a home, then a bakery, then an Insurance Agency and Gun store. Now half of the building is my husband’s embroidery business. WeEmbroider was started back in 1999. Henry took a break from the embroidery business to focus on the insurance agency and a couple of years ago he decided to get it going again.

Since we own the building it was perfect for us to use for our business. And Henry said, I could have half of the building to create a workshop/studio where I can have workshops.

The carpet was a mess in there. With so many people coming through, foot traffic, spills and what not. But the cost of replacing the carpet was too high. So Henry and I brainstormed and came up with the idea to paint the floor.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1

I did all of the work myself. Henry helped me move furniture but I did all the painting. It took 4 coats and 10 gallons of paint to get the floor ready to decorate.

After the floor was painted white I painted flowers and dragonflies. Using craft paint, Acrylic paint and even some Glam from Tattered Angels.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1

Then I started moving items into this space. Jewelry making supplies have a corner, the Stamps have almost a whole wall. The hat making area is also in this space.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Hercules has found a spot on the table to watch what I’m doing. Looking at the stamp shelves and the hat making supplies. I even made a curtain to the little closet that holds most of my fabric.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Some of the greeting cards and the mask I made for a challenge with Canvas Corp Brands. Currently, those photo boxes are empty. waiting for me to decide what should be stored in them.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Some of my wood mounted stamps. I still have a lot more to move and figure out how I want them stored and displayed.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1

This is my sewing space. I use this area when I’m working on alterations or creating items for customers. Making quilts has been something I’ve enjoyed for a few years now as well. Oreo is taking a snooze on my cutting desk. The chair is there so he can jump up there. Oreo loves to look out the window.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Looking out from my sewing space I can see the front door and worktables. Before I filled the stamp shelves. See all those boxes on the shelves. Still more to move!

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Decided to paint the carpet in this area to help tie things together. The carpet under the desk and cabinets was okay so I didn’t move everything out of this area to paint.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Carpet is done and the Ironing station is back in place.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1The Pairs themed canvas started because I purchased a small portable ironing board. The fabric was so pretty I decided to cover the worktops and make covers for the chair and sewing machines.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Most of the stamps moved into place. It is hard to see in this photo but I also have a camera mount so I can do videos in the workshop.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1A few of the hats I made.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Tea cart belonged to my grandmother and I got it when my mother passed in Sept 2017. The sides fold out and it makes a really nice table. Some of my altered domino necklaces, bottle cap necklaces and more.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1See how cute the floor looks? Everyone comments on the floor when they visit the shop. I’m glad that I decided to document the process so I could share a Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Out in the entryway is a long narrow room. Henry had his shop logo but said I could add my finished items for sale out there.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1

I hope to have my first workshop in this space soon. Some of the workshop ideas will be some of the following.

  • Hat making
  • Jewelry making
  • Greeting Cards
  • Junk Journals
  • Sewing
  • Painting

I will also have private classes for those that want to have a couple of friends or one on one to get help with a project. Make sure to follow my Facebook Page to get updates on workshops. And feel free to contact me about doing a workshop.

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

Rose Stamp Tutorial Video

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.

One Fine Day Prayer Journal

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.

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.
