Journal Notes with Helmar

Hi, it's my turn over at Helmar USA today and I am sharing a journal I made to take notes of my ideas, sketches and/or to-do list.  It is small enough to carry in my art bag or even my purse.  Well I do carry a big purse ...

Rather than downloading a lot of photos I decided to make a quick video on youtube:

It is funny how you start off with one idea for creating a journal cover and it just morphs into something different.  Does this happen to you?  Well it helps when you are using good product and I love using my Helmar Adhesives.  I have been using this brand for years. 

Today I used:

This journal was fun to make and I loved doodling on my book and getting a little drawing in.  Below you will find the list of products I used besides my Helmar.

Leaky Shed Studio "Scatter Joy" Card

Hi today I would like to share with you my "Scatter Joy" stacked flower card using Leaky Shed Studio "Bird Branch" chipboard.

I would like to start with photos of my process; using lots of paint, stickles and layers of paper.  I also used the Outlines Rubber stamps that I have had for eons but still love.  This flower stack is from the "Blossoms" series.

Painted the base of my Kraft Card with Art Anthology paint

Prepared my chipboard with a layer of Pro Art gesso

Painted on some dimensional paint on top of gesso

Painted the leaves with an alcohol ink Copic Marker

Used Ranger "emboss it" and some Gary Burlin clear embossing powder on the 
Leaky Shed Studio chipboard

Finished card with layers of bazzill, my stamped and fuzzy cut flowers and 
spreckles of white paint

Thank you for stopping by today, be sure to head on over to Leaky Shed Studio today and say hello.

Baby Layout with Leaky Shed Studio Swirl

Hi, I created this cute Baby layout of my niece for Leaky Shed Studio today.  I do not normally scrap with lots of blank space but I knew I wanted several elements on this page; so I thought a plain background would enhance the photo, chipboard and paper piecing.  Plus I wanted to create something out of my wheel house.

Tips and Techniques:

I took out a white piece of Bazzill cardstock and sprayed some blue to go along with the color theme.

I then prepared my LSS chipboard with a couple of coats of Pro Art gesso.  I let it dry between coats.

I wanted my LSS chipboard to be yellow to add a complementary color to my layout.  So I embossed the all the chipboard with the yellow first.  

Then I decided to add sprinkles of the chunky white enamel in order to soften the yellow and give the layout a more shabby feel.

After preparing my chipboard and base for my layout I started to add my cute embellishments and paper piecing.

I love that photo of my niece and had a great time creating this layout for Leaky Shed Studio.  I hoped you enjoyed it.

March Playtime and Leaky Shed Studio

Hi first let me wish you all a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

My layout today is of my cute nephew as a baby.  My twins sisters and I would take our children to the Polliwog Park for picnics and playtime.  I themed the layout with frogs because of "polliwog" park. 

I used lots of Leaky Shed Studio chippies in this one.

My friends laugh at me because I usually scrapbook without pictures.  Well this time I had the pictures.  I also used Sizzix cute bug die cuts, QuicKutz frogs and also AccuCut lily pad die cuts.  I even had journaling, yeah me!

St. Patrick's Day Layout with Helmar

Today my layout is being featured over at Helmar!  I was asked to make something for St. Patrick's day so I came up with this simple St. Patty's layout.  I used the Helmar adhesive runner.  This runner is permanent and you can buy replacement cartridges to reload.

I had some St. Patty's paper in my stash so I wanted to use that up.  I should really join a "stash" board ...

I ran some bazzill cardstock through my computer to title my page then I started layering

I also used Helmar's zapdots.  These are great when you want some height and dimension in your work.

I wish you all a very happy St. Patrick's day and thank you for stopping by.

Steampunk Canvas Goodbye

Hi, today is my last post for Art Anthology, its been fun but time to move on.  Plus my next major project is to remodel my craft room so that is going to take a while.

So this month Art Anthology challenged us to make a steampunk themed project.  I decided to re-do a canvas that I was demoing at CHA and repurpose it.

I had originally planned on just adding to my pastel canvas but then decided to go grungy.  So
I went from this ...

To my steampunk inspired canvas.

I started with stone effects and stencils

Then added colorations spray

After, I added more stencils with a mixture of texture paste (stucco) and sorbet (mi bella)

Then I started adding layers of embellishments.

Thank you for stopping by today, happy scrapping ...
