Balancing Time

Hello! This week, the Stampendous team has been sharing projects using some of the new 6" x 6" Cling Stamps. There are quite a few to choose from, and because of that, I decided to use 2 of them on today's project. I was very inspired by the Clock Collage stamp. Balancing time is always an issue, especially when you're a mom, a crafter, have a job, etc. I am sure that many of you are in the same boat that I'm in.
I started off by applying a few shades of ink from Imagine.  I used VersaMagic in Turquoise Gem and Grapefruit, plus New Sprout Memento in the tear drop shapes applicators and just swiped the color across my journal. Next, I stamped the Clock Collage. Given that the stamp is a 6" x 6" square, and my journal is a rectangle, I had some holes around the edges that I needed to fill. Since there is already cracking in the Clock Collage stamp, I decided to use the Crackle stamp to fill in the gaps. I'll be using that Crackle stamp a whole lot, and anyone that does Mixed Media is going to want to get their hands on this big stamp.

I needed some words or quotes to help explain what I was feeling when I created this page, so I used a couple Laurel Burch stamps. The sentiment on the right is from the Floral Reflections set, and the "Balance" and border on the left, plus the spots on the right are from the Kindred Borders set. I sprayed both of those pieces with Fireworks! Spray for added shimmer.

After I attached the sentiments, I used my palette knife to apply some Copper Embossing Paste randomly on the page. I needed more texture though. So I shook up some Wedding Dress irRESISTable Spray and dropped it on to the page and let it dry. I felt the page was done at this point. I was happy that I took the "time" to play in my art journal since it's been ages since I've done so.

That's it for me today. Please visit the Stampendous Blog to see more fun projects using the 6" x 6" Cling Stamps. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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…
