Mixed Media Autumn Tag


 
Hi everyone, I think fall is my favorite time of year.  The air is getting crisp, the leaves are changing, and vibrant pops of color are everywhere.  I was cleaning my studio and found an old vellum quote I've had in my stash forever it says "Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn."  So I decided to create a tag.
 
For my leaf foliage I used these two Die-Namite Dies
 
Leafy Branch Die

Look at all that yummy depth, rich color and texture!

 

 
Here is a process video of me creating this tag.

Mixed Media Tag



I just LOVE mixed media tags. I love to create them, I love to get them and I love to share them.  This is one of my favorite ways to use scraps, and experiment with new techniques.  When I created this tag, I gave myself  two little challenges.
  1. ONLY USE THE OLDER PRODUCTS 
 

 
This was easy enough -  I really don't think there was a single item on this tag that was new!   I used old Rub-ons that are so old they were cracking (LOL)  It is time for them to go!   And all the other products with exception of the mediums and pearls were found in a bucket of scraps on my desk!

 
 
2.  Do something new!    -   I wanted to experiment with different sized pearls and adding them to my floral sprays.  So I decided to use the Glass Bead Glitter Gel from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.  You can see the micro beads from the Glass Bead Glitter Gel adding additional texture to the larger pearls.  LOVED this technique!   They remind me a little of grapes, and may consider that with a grape fine spray in the future! 
 
I just love this transparency that I printed several years ago when I took the Rhonna Designs' 21 Day challenge in 2010.   I added Patina Alcohol Ink to the back so that the lettering was easier to read.

 
This little Nylon butterfly has been around for a long time. I just keep putting him back in the bucket.  Now he has a cozy place to sit!
 
I have prepared a process video of me creating the tag.
 

 
Here is the finished tag!  Isn't it GORGEOUS!
 
I love how this tag looks like rusted metal.  The Patina effect is simply gorgeous!  There is a ton of texture, and so much eye candy here!
 
Remember to Save the Date - Our next Ustream will be October  6 at 8:30 p.m. EST.  I hope you can join me.  I plan to do some chalkboard art!

Thinking of You Card from scraps



I'm having so much fun with the Just Sayin' Paper Collection from My Mind's Eye.   I was sent to my room to clean my desk from last night's ustream, and in true A.D.H.D.  fashion I ended up making a card!

Thinking of You card using the Just Sayin' line from My Mind's Eye designed by Tonya Gibbs   #psychomomscrapbooks #MME #Card



For today's card I'm using the Die-Namites Dies Flower Scroll Die.


And the Just Sayin' 6x6 paper pad from My Mind's Eye. 


Last night I shared how I created the flowers that are used on this card.  Here is the video recording from last night's show in case you couldn't make it live:





These papers are so whimsical and fun.  And make a super festive "Cheer Me Up" any occasion card!  I hope I've inspired you to create something in 10 mins. or less with the scraps on your desk. Ready Set GO.....

Thanks for stopping in today!

Ustream September 2014 Follow up

Thank you to everyone who came to the Ustream last night live.  We had an awesome time, and learned lots of great techniques. 


Here was the kit from last night's show.  Thank you to Scrapbooking With M.E. Boutique for providing the kits, and sponsoring the show last night.  I believe there are a few of these kits remaining, if you are interested, please visit the boutique





In the class I taught you how to create these beautiful blossoms that mimic the flowers in the collection. These are fantastic on your layouts because they add visual interest, without the bulk!  They are so whimsy and fun that you can add them to cards, as well as mini albums!  I also shared a new technique for using your Whipped Spackle from the August Kit with Embossing powders to create amazing texture and depth. 




Here is a glimps at the finished layout.  So shabby and whimsical.  Love all the elements. Can't wait to create my next project with this collection.
