Jessica Jones - Karleigh Sue

There was a fabulous new release this month over at Karleigh Sue.  And today I get to share with you another one of them :)

I chose to play with the wonderful Jessica Jones.  I did this journaling page while I was away for a weekend with my friend Erin.  I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do.. but I had been playing with magazine cut out and saw this great page that I thought would work fabulously with her.

The bottom part of the page is done with a brown paper bag that the wine purchased came in.  The sentiment was found online and then I stamped it out individually to make it.  I lined the paper with some newspaper :)  Yup recycling at it's best.  The wonderful image was colored with my copics.  I even made her a plaid shirt!  I was very proud of that.  And then I fussy cut her out.

I will be entering this in the following challenges:

  1. ccee stampers - Mixed media
  2. Aud sentiments challenge blog - Funny Sentiment - I think this one is pretty funny
  3. Crafting with an attitude  - anything goes
  4. southern girls challenge - anything goes
  5. Crafty creations challenges - anything goes

I hope you liked this and that it will inspire you to look at the papers around you differently and just have fun and play :)

Say What?!? - RSD

Hello and happy Monday to you all!  I'm here to share with you my very last make as an EDT design member of Rick St-Dennis.  I have had such a great time for the past year 1/2 and learned so much from Rick as well as from all the wonderful DT.

For this last make I was really nervous because I wanted to do a really good job.  The image that I'm playing with really fits me I think lol minus the weird clothes... It's the great Say what?!? and I used her as the very 1st page of my new dylusion journal.  I have received this journal a full year ago from the wonderful Paola Jofre.  And because it's a dylusion journal I was having issues actually playing with it.  I know it's silly but that's what it is.  I tend to have trouble using what I totally adore... something to work on.

Anyway, I figured this post for RSD would be the perfect opportunity to finally use it!

I printed my image really large and colored her with all kinds of different colors that I would not usually use together.  A way to get me out of my box.  I made the background for this using my neocolors (I don't use those enough either!).  Then I used my black fude pen to highlight the circles as well as the border.  The sentiment is from Delusion by Ranger.  I put them on some left over black cardstock from a die cut.

I'm entering this in this fabulous new challenge:
Inky mess - Anything goes mixed media

I had lots of fun and now that my journal is started well I'll be good to continue it :)

Hope you liked this and looking forward to your comments.

Good Sunday to all of you

Wow it's so very quiet on my blog isn't it... not blogging as much as I used too.  Doing more videos and trying to do new mixed media things.

Somehow I've started to associate my blog with my dt work... but I have to start blogging back just for the fun of it the way that I used to before!  So I figured on this beautiful Sunday morning, I would do just that.

1st of all Happy Father's day to all the great fathers out there.  I'm blessed for having the best of them as my father and having found the best one for my kids :)  How can 1 girl be so lucky?  I don't know but I feel blessed for this.

What have I been up to?  Well last weekend I went crafting with my friend Erin (met through blogging!!!  that's why I have to bring back my blog to life).  We met 1/2 between our two places in Ogdensburg.  We had found a little family motel where we got a HUGE room and were able to craft to our little hearts desire.  I have to admit being super teary eyed when it came for the goodbyes... I didn't want to leave this wonderful time with my friend... the good news is that we can do this again and I sure hope that we find time in our busy life to do so.

What did you do will you ask?  Well my friend Erin wanted to do more mixed media but she's was having difficulty to be loose about it and just go with the flow.  So we did a JB5 album.  If you have never done one it's about journaling in 5 steps.  And for each steps you have 15 minutes (except for the image part).  Because there's not a lot of time you really have to just let it go.  And I think it was an amazing thing to do.  I have done 2 previously but it really made me feel alive to do this again!

I'm doing a video series of those 5 steps that we did and you can see the 1st video here:

After that came the best part because we just played with all the leftovers, and the left over cards and such where the paint that was left was put.  And here is the set of 5 cards that I did for a swap with a new youtube friend.  I really adore getting interactions with people on youtube or on my blog and getting a request from someone that says they would like to swap with me is really awesome!!!

Here's the card set that has been sent out :
To make these it's only paints, magazine cut outs, doodling, stamping and whatever was on the table at the time :)  And boy oh boy was this fun!!!  And this will have to happen more in my life because this is what is making me feel happy!!!!

I'm going to enter these altered cards (ATC) in the following challenges:

  1. Crafting-with-friends - Anything goes
  2. Simply papercrafts for all occassions - Anything goes
  3. Wicked wednesday atc - Something quirky - I think they are pretty all quirky maybe except for the time one... 
That's it for me!!!  Have fun everyone!!!

Lumberlife - Karleigh Sue style

Hello everyone!  There's a brand new release over at Karleigh Sue and I decided ot play with the great Lumberlife as my 1st post on this great release!

I had lots of fun making this while over at my weekend away with my friend Erin.   BTW this is a page in the middle of my journal but I'm opening it totally so that I can keep this up and standing and not show the other page :)  Just thought I would tell you all because I have been getting a lot of comments on how my book cover is awesome for other journaling pages that I have shared... and I definitely do no have that many journals lol

Anyway back to my post.  This weekend I was all about using my cut out magazines.  I've been accumulating them and I don't know but this weekend was about doing collage!  And I have to admit to LOVING doing this.
So the background are magazine pages.  I used paper pieces of the bag that the wine was put in (you can't have a crafty weekend without wine!!!).  And I handwrote the sentiment that I had found online.  I tore the papers up to make it more fun.  The image was colored with my copics.

I really love how it ended up!  No idea that it would be this way... but I couldn't imagine drawing a wood behind her...

I'm entering this journal page in the following challenges:

  1. Inspiration destination challenge blog - Anything goes
  2. Rubys rainbow - Anything but a card
  3. Kraftin kimmie stamps - Anything goes
  4. Deep ocean challenge blog - Metal or wood - I have pictures of wood all over the bottom of the journaling page, plus technically the paper is from wood lol - yeah... I know far fetched
  5. ttcrd - Anything goes
That's it for me for today!!!  Hope you have enjoyed this!!!

Sip and Savor - Scribbles Design Challenge

It's time already for a new challenge over at Scribbles designs challenge. This month it's about drinks whatever that might mean for you!

For me with the summer coming it reminds me of a nice beer on a terrasse :) My own or a restaurant!

I totally love experimenting new beers. And very often the beers of the small local breweries have totally awesome labels. I started collecting those so that I might remember them.

I thought my 2nd "En masse" journal would be perfect for this.

And I just HAD the perfect quote from Scribbles design for this it's Five o'clock quote.

I didn't want to totally cover the fabulous label so I put the digi, that was colored with pan pastels, on a bit of washi tape.  So this is the closed (well partly closed look).

And here is the open look
I hope this has inspired you :)  If you want to see the start of  "En masse" journal you should check out Shannon Green's video here:
And there's a FB group if you want to join :)  It's about that style of journaling but so much more as well.

Have a fabulous Wednesday everyone!!!


Musical inspiration - RSD style

To get to the FB group just click on the image above

The image that I used is the fabulous Sister Jubilata.

You can see my video here:

And here is the actual make with the request on the left hand side and the page on the right.

And here is the page in close up
A bunch of scrap piece of papers as well as some washi tape. The nun was colored with my copics.  My happiest found was the tire tread that I used for the stones at the step of the nun.

I had lots of fun with this.  I hope that you will be inspired as well.

Have a great Wednesday!  There's still a post to come today.

Hey!  It's time for a new challenge over at The East Wind and this time it's all about the boys.

Well that being said.... I'm feeling delinquent as you will see if you watch my video here:
So I did make something but I used the fab image Lucy Loo Teenager for it.

and I followed this fabulous prompt for this:

Here is the make that I did:

I used an image for the background that you can find here.

I used a sentiment and some die cuts that were given to me in a swap.  I made the tree by drawing it with a stabilo pencil and then some paints.

I really hope that you like this and that you are inspired to try this out!!!

Here is the make using the wonderful image Be a Unicorn Nude.  Well do you really think a unicorn would dress up?!?  It's already fabulous isn't it?!?

The papers are all strips and they are double side papers so I was able to really match them up for the fun of it.  I used some black water color on the side of them when they were in the book to make it more uniform.

Lahla Mermaid Shell - Faery Ink

Lahla Mermaid shell was perfect to start a new project of mine which is Pick a stick monthly challenge

There's a facebook group that gives some inspiration for journaling and I really wanted to play along since I learned of them!  The good news is that the 1st prompt for January (yup I'm behind) required a quote from a song!  Well the fabulous mermaid totally made me think of Ariel!  And I new right away the song that I wanted to use on this.
I've been having lots of fun as well using some unexpected journals for my art and for this it's a magazine that I could just not throw away!  So it's the base of this make.  If you want to see the making of this you can go and check out the video here.
And here is the finished look!
lahla mermaid shell

To make this I used some scrapbook papers, lots of paints, some stencils as well as texture paste.  The image was colored with my copics and I put lots of Jelly roll pen on her to make her all shiny.
I hope you will be checking out this new image and that you will be inspired to try to journal in different mediums!

Hope you have a fabulous Monday everyone.

Oddball June FB challenge

Ouf... Last post of the day :)  This last one is for the new Oddball Design FB challenge!!! And you should totally enter since it's anything goes always with Oddball images.  If you don't have an image go right on over the store and use the code DTVICKY10 to get a 10% off your purchases!

And yes I have another postcard to share with you.  However for this one I have done a video that you will be able to see here:

The entire reason for this postcard was to share with a friend what I had made with a puzzle piece from a puzzle she gave me.  However if you didn't watch the video... I can tell you I was really surprised by the size of the puzzle piece.  I thought it would be small ones.  Which obviously you can see is not the case.  But I was able to make something with it so I was really happy that it worked in the end.

The image was colored with my copics.  I used my faber castell pen on the stenciled pieces and of course lots of paint.  The stencil used for the heart is from Megan Suarez (you can find her on etsy as well).  The great sentiment for this was part of the digi sheet!!!  I just LOVE it.

I'm entering this postcard in the following challenges:

  1. 613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
  2. Dragonfly journeys - Polka party - I made my very own polka dots on the puzzle piece as well as some stencils one out of  a ribbon
  3. Left of center challenges - Stripes or dots - dots on the puzzle piece
  4. One stitch at a time challenge - Stitching real or false - false one :)
  5. We love 2 create - Anything mixed media
That's it!!!!  Hope you have enjoyed my makes and I wish you a wonderful day!!!


Scribble Design Challenge - Tools of the trade midway

I'm totally OBSESSED with making postcards!  People like to get them and they are a great way to recycle all the cereal boxes that my kids go through!!!

So for the midway point of Scribbles Challenge about tools I figured this would be a great opportunity to make a little postcard for my dad.

For this make I'm using Tool Belt.  The background of this postcard was started using left over paint through a stencil way back.  I thought it was pretty neat so I didn't want to lose this.  I decided to add just some watered down yellow paint.

The image itself was colored with my coloring pencils.  I added some pattern paper and some crossword puzzle paper that was left on my desk.  The sentiment was found online and I thought it was just PERFECT.

Well it's a super busy day today... but I still have one more!  So please do come back for it.


Delicious Doodles Challenge - Pearls and Lace

Hello!  I don't know about you but there is one type of card that I really really HATE to make but that are required in life and that is a sympathy card.  My stash was totally empty.  

So when I saw the challenge this month for Delicious Doodles was to use Pearls and Lace I thought YAY that is going to be perfect for making an elegant sympathy card.  Especially since there are so many wonderful images from Delicious Doodles that would fit the bill for this.  This time around I used the image  Lily of the Valley Border

The paper that I used is from Bobunny.  I added some lace trim as well as some pearl trim.  I thought it really finished this card off!  The image was colored with my copics but prior to printing it I had put a sentiment that I stretched from TLC.

I still have more creations to come so I really hope that you will come again :)


The east wind - something new something old

Hello everyone!  It's the start to a new month and that means a new challenge and a new freebie over at The East wind.  The challenge this month is to use something new as well as something old.

For my journaling I decided to use an old background that had been created in an art class.  My other old items are the stamps that I have used.  I used a Tim Holtz sentiment (which I thought was perfect for the new part as well lol) and a border from Dyan Reaveley.

I colored the awesome image with my copics.  I fussy cut her out and fussy cut out a backing to her as well.

I had a lot of fun to create this and I sure hope that you will have fun with this cutie as well!!!

There's lots more coming up so please do come back :)
