Linnie Blooms and Stampendous Collaoration

Linnie Blooms and Stampendous...what a fantastic combination!  You're going to find oodles of fun projects to really take your mixed media in a new direction.  Of course there are prizes for 3 lucky winners!  Just click on the Stampendous link HERE for details. For my project, I started to create a mini book for my dogs. 


That's my boy with our dog Abigail. They're really good buds. I started off playing with what will be one of the inside pages of the file folder mini album. I don't know why, but I typically leave the covers for last. They tend to be the hardest parts for me. I cropped down my photo and pulled acrylic paints to coordinate with it. I painted some Christmas Green on the canvas first, and let it dry. Meanwhile, I cut out a mat for my picture, and I heat embossed with a couple of the lovely vials in the Blue Frantage Encrusted Jewel Technique 5 Jar Kit. Say that 3 times fast!

Now that my green paint has dried, I grabbed a turquoise paint and my Chevron stencil. I used a stencil brush to apply the paint to the canvas and stencil. I purposely didn't make it perfect. I wanted it to have kind a worn look. To 2 of the corners, I squeezed on some Faber-Castell Texture Gems (it's like a clear gel that makes great texture, but dries clear so it's cool to use it as an adhesive too), and sprinkled on some blue fragments (also from the Blue Kit mentioned above). I glued down my photo, and added a simple "Friends" stamp with more paint. I gave it a shadow with a PITT Pen. 

Here is the page that will go next to my other....creating a 2 page spread. I used similar techniques as I did on the first page, but with a few different products. The stencil I used here was the Spiral Dots and I used Champagne Glass Glitter as an accent and added texture. I added some May Arts ribbon, and I stamped my sentiment on to it.

It's a little tough to read in my photos, but it says, "Friendship isn't a big thing. It's a million little things." You can find it in the Stampendous! shop HERE. Well, that's it for me today! I will be sharing some more of my mini book soon, so I hope you'll come back for a visit soon! Below are all of the folks joining in today. Please e sure to leave everyone some love. A HUGE thank you to Linnie Blooms for doing this fun collaboration with us! I'm having a blast making these pages. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I love this file folder canvas. It is so versatile.
The background on the page is so pretty. All the dots are pretty.

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
