This page uses all of my typical colors but in a very muted, pastel way! This is not my typical style, yet it is all the same time. I hope you love the look!
A friend of mine sent me some ATCs and a few goodies a few months ago while I was in school. I told her I’d return the favor but it would take a while because of my busy school schedule. I hope she thinks it was worth the wait!!! This index card, along with the Have Courage ICAD were sent off to her last week and arrived earlier this week, with a few other goodies, of course.
This ICAD was made using the Star Confetti Mask made by UmWow Studio. The 3D texture of the stars with the creamy Antique Linen Distress Ink background really started to get pulled together when I used a Tim Holtz sticker to tie it all together with orange spatters. You know I’ve been obsessed with orange lately! After some machine stitching, some more Distress Inking, and some Tim Holtz rubons, this ICAD was done for my friend Pam! She loved it, hope you do as well!
This page was inspired by both Donna Downey and Vicky P. Vicky inspired my color combination while Donna inspired the picture frame with the wings. This page took me around thirty minutes to complete…gotta love quick art journaling!
The eggshell wings were made about a year ago and I never used them. I traced a pair of wood veneer wings onto chipboard and then collaged eggshells onto the chipboard with some Mod Podge. I used a nail file to make the edges clean. Then, I painted them and glued ’em down! If you want to try the same thing, you’ll need some eggshells but you have to clean them first. Simply boil your eggshells and once they cool, you can peel the membrane off the shells. I keep mine in a little container so they’re always ready and I don’t have to deal with cleaning more shells again soon!
I’ve been really loving playing with my Distress Inks again lately. This easy little ICAD was the results of my playing around one afternoon with my old friend Tim! I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Tim Holtz stamps, Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, and even my Tiny Attacher!
I created a bunch of mixed media tags for Martina Huppertova since she’s moving and needed them for her journal. I recorded the process and had a little too much fun in the process!
Check out this cool trick I found to create permanent spray inks with Distress Ink Reinkers!!!
I made this cute ICAD (mixed media index card) using an index card which had some dried paint on it and a few Tim Holtz stickers. I’ve also been obsessed with my sewing machine lately, so of course I threw some stitching on there. Hope you enjoy this mixed media mini masterpiece! Alliterating Aaron attacks again!
