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.

Day 10 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 With Tip In Tutorial

Day 10 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 With Tip In Tutorial journal prompt. What is something about Nature that you are grateful to see? Today as I write my journal entry I also share how to add a couple of photos to the journal.

Inspirational Quote:
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Day 10 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 With Tip In Tutorial

When I thought about today’s prompt I decided that I wanted to add a couple of photos that I took this past summer of my garden. But, I needed to attach them to the page and still have room to write. That is where a tip in comes to play. A tip in is a great way to add something to a journal page and be able to have writing space.

Once the tip in was added I then wrote my Day 10 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 journal entry as follows.

Day 10 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 With Tip In Tutorial

Watching how nature works in harmony makes me grateful to be alive.

I love watching the plants grow and all the critters that rely on the plants to live. It is amazing to watch things grow.

Day 10 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 With Tip In Tutorial

I pray that I will get to see many things grow in my lifetime.

Seeing the flowers that my mom loved grow gives me joy. She loved lilies and I have planted a lot in my yard. Love the blooms.

Day 10 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 With Tip In Tutorial

In fact, I have planted over 100 lily plants in my yard because of my mother. Next spring and summer my yard should be full of blooms.

Day 3 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 and Stamped Card Tutorial

Sharing Day 3 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 and Stamped Card Tutorial. The Day 3 prompt: Something Old that you are thankful for in your life? Today I’m reflecting on all the wonderful tools I’ve collected over the years. I’m thankful that I kept these tools as it makes me happy to be able to use them daily. After writing in my journal I made a small journal card or notecard.

Supplies used for the Day 3 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 and Stamped Card Tutorial.

Todays prompt for Day 3 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 and Stamped Card Tutorial caused me to think about my studio and the things I have. Some of these things are over 25 years old. Some even older.

Day 3 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 and Stamped Card Tutorial

When I first started making things and selling the items, I would take the profit and buy a new tool or supply. There were times I would save money for a long time in order to buy a new tool. By doing this over many years I’ve collected a lot of tools. Which I’m grateful that I did so as now I don’t have the funds to buy a lot of tools. But I don’t have to since I have just about everything I would need.

This prompt also caused me to think about those friendships that I’ve had for many years. This week I was able to visit with Beverly of Bline Design Stamps. It was wonderful to sit and chat with her and catch up.

Day 3 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 and Stamped Card Tutorial

When you look at your supplies does it make you remember how you acquired them? Do you have someone that comes up in your memories that you haven’t chatted with in a while? Take a moment and send a note to that person and try to reconnect.

Day 1 of 30 days of Thankful 2018

Here it is Day 1 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 challenge. The first prompt is: Who has helped you that you wish to thank? When I thought about this prompt I decided that I would also make a bookmark to give to the person I would write about. Why not give a little gift to the person that you are so thankful for their help in your life?

The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you. ~John E. Southard

When I sat down and thought about the Day 1 of 30 days of Thankful 2018 prompt I thought about one person that has done so much for me over the years. That person is my mother-in-law. She has been a cheerleader and supporter of me on many endeavors and I’m so grateful for all the support she has given me.

Therefore, I decided that I would make a bookmark that she could use and be reminded that I’m thankful to have her in my life. Why not make a small card, bookmark or tag for the person that you wish to thank.

Day 1 of 30 days of Thankful 2018

Remember, the idea is to thank them, no need to go overboard with the gift. Just let them know how much you care.

Who will you write about in your journal today?

Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial

Today I’m sharing a Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial. One of my Facebook group is having a swap and I decided to join in the fun. Using digital images from Calico Collage, some scissors, and a few other supplies I made bingo cards in under ten minutes. You can make these too.

Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial

Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial Video.

Supplies used in the Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial.

Let’s get started on this Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial. Begin with selecting digital images. Next crop the fussy cut images you want to use and print at a size that will fit your bingo card. In my case, I made the smaller images about 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial

The images were printed on standard copy paper using a laser printer. Use what you have, or you can even send the images to a print shop. Trim the images from the paper.

For the bingo cards, these were printed four to a page and these measured about 4.5 x 3.75 inches. Cut cardstock for the card base slightly larger than the images. Or you can print the images on cardstock and not have to mat the images.

Select an image for the focal point and fussy cut. If this were going to be a pocket in a journal I would either print on cardstock or glue another piece of paper on the back to make it stronger. Since this is a journal card and won’t get as much pulling items in and out I left it at the copy weight paper.

Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial

Add distress inks to the edges of all the papers. Adhere the bingo card to the base with the Best Glue Ever. Layer the fussy cut element in the corner and then sew around the outside of the bingo card, catching the fussy cut element on two sides.

Apply Tulip Dimensional glitter paint to the image to highlight areas that you want to sparkle.

Place the journal card in the tuck spot and you are done! It took me longer to write this blog post than it did for me to create one of these cards it goes that fast!

Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Here it is the last color of the rainbow junk journal pages. Today I’m sharing the Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial using digital images from Linda’s Wisdom digital journal kit that features art I created that Calico Collage turned into a digital kit.

This Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial completes the rainbow for the rainbow junk journal I’m creating. Making these pages stretched my creativity. Trying to find elements that fit each color was sometimes a challenge. Doing these pages helped me try new things.

Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial

 

Being able to use Linda’s Wisdom digital journal kit in this page made my soul soar! I would have never thought that I would have my art in a digital format that could be shared around the world.

Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial

The next step for the rainbow junk journal will be to create the cover and add the pages. My idea is to make signatures for each color and add a few simple pages for more journal space.

Because of the Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial and the other tutorials for the rainbow, I hope it inspires you to create. Try new things. Look for cool items to add to your journal. Who would have thought that paint chips would be a pretty element? Couldn’t you see making a journal page that was all about the new baby room and the color pallet was chosen? What about a wedding, showing the theme of colors?

Let’s begin the Pink Floral Napkin Tag Tutorial. Select the corner image from Her Allure, trim and add distress ink to the edges. Apply Tulip Dimensional Glitter paint on the flowers of the corner and allow to dry.

Use a pretty napkin and a 4 x 6 tag base. Apply glue stick to the tag base and then using the top layer of the napkin adhere the napkin.

Spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the tag base and corner pocket. Let the spray dry or use a heat tool.

Trim the corners of the 4 x 6 to create a tag shape. Sew around the edges of the tag shape. Apply distress ink around the edges.

Using hot glue attach the pom pom trim to the bottom of the tag. Adhere the corner pocket on the tag base over the trim.

Create a half rosette using pink lace and a stapler, adhere to the corner using hot glue. Adhere the pink lace scrap and chiffon rose on top of the lace bit.

Apply dots of the Best Glue Ever on the chiffon rose, lace embellishment in three spots, then place flat back rhinestones on top.

Punch a hole at the top of the tag and tie lace through the hole. Could staple or sew if you like that look.

Add a journal card to the pocket and enjoy. Hope you found this Pink Floral Napkin Tag Tutorial easy and you are a #motivatedcreator because of seeing this today. Head over to my Facebook page LindaIsrael and share your creations in the event to be entered into a drawing for a prize.

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through

Sharing an Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through today. On Sept 17th during the YouTube Live stream, I showed how to add elastic to make a Midori style junk journal or travelers notebook. During the video, I also showed how to bind one of the inserts as well as created a journal card. The Journal is now complete and I’m sharing the contents.

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through

The Apple Spice Junk Journal measures 8.25 x 6 inch Junk Journal with a total of 36 pages. Three journal inserts that can be removed from the cover. This journal will hold four inserts. The journal is for sale and listed in my store.

This Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through was a fun to make. Using scraps of canvas, burlap, and papers for the cover from my stash is helping me to reduce the stash!

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip ThroughRecently I picked up some of those bulb pins and I’m loving being able to attach items to my journal like this little journal charm. Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip ThroughThe cover has pockets so you can add extra cards or other items you want to keep. A pen can be added as well so you always have one handy.

The first insert in this Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through is a one month planner. The first page flips out and you can write all kinds of notes on the back or in the boxes on the front.

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip ThroughUsing mixed media pages I created for another project to make a pocket page is a great way to have more space to save items.

Apple Spice Junk Journal Flip Through One of my favorite things is adding Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mists to journal pages. The colors match perfectly with the digital journal kit from Calico Collage.

The planner pages are so fun. Having a week all on one page is a great way to list items and keep track of what needs to be done. The other pages are fun to write special notes or even attach photos.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Fall is so beautiful, don’t you agree? Today I’m sharing a Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial. This project was hosted by Bea Grob and four artists in total participated as this is an international swap. Using Tattered Angels Products and more I show how I created my postcards and then show how I decorated all the postcards.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

 

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial Video

Supplies used in the Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Let’s get this Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial started. Begin by selecting a large piece of watercolor paper. This will be a master board style project. The idea is that you decorate a large sheet of paper, then cut it up for the project.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Next using stencils, Tattered Angels Mists and more start adding color to the watercolor master board. Dry with a heat tool or allow to dry naturally. It is a good idea to let each layer dry before applying more mediums.

Collage bits of mixed media papers on top of the misted paper. Adhere the bits randomly. Make sure to spread out the pieces on the whole master board so it will have bits when it is cut up.

Apply paint to blend the background to the pasted pieces. Add one color at a time and make sure to dry before applying another color so you don’t end up with mud.

Cut up the master board int 4 x 6 pieces to be made into postcards. Save the other bits for other projects, like small tags or journal cards.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Make sure you check out the other ladies videos for their Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorials.

Loved making the backgrounds. Now let’s dive into decorating all the postcards for this Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Since this is a Fall project I decided to take a walk around outside and pick up a few fallen leaves. After doing a google search on how to dry leaves I knew I could use these in this project today.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Base postcard by Lena

Select leaves that are not super dry and brittle. Follow instructions on how to dry leaves. Once the leaves are dry apply Glam to seal the leaves. I decided to use a glam that had lots of glitter in it so the leaves shimmer.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Base postcard by Bea

Adhere the leaves using the Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect. Apply a small amount to the backside of the leave and let it air dry for a couple of minutes. Then place the leaf on the postcard. Add something heavy on top to push it into the postcard. Set aside to dry.

Create a sentiment using a rubber stamp on kraft cardstock. Apply distress inks to the edges of the sentiment. Use 3D foam squares on the back of the sentiment and then adhere to the postcard.
