STEAMPUNK FUN WITH GECKO GALZ



This month with Gecko Galz we were asked to create a project inspired by steampunk and autumn and I came up with a few designs that I had fun creating!


My first design is a altered Notebook, my inspiration for fall is all the amazing colors of fall and I used Gecko Galz Journal topper kit and the Paris Dreams collage set. These little notebooks make great gifts for friends and family!


This fun little wall hanging incorporates Gecko Galz Time Flies collage set and the Miss Louise collage sheet and wonderful odds and ends from my stash. This kind of wall hanging is a great gift for people and you can leave the pocket empty so they can place their photos and trinkets inside.


And last but not least this fun little steampunk card was creted using Gecko Galz Steam Punk Jewels and papers from 7 gypsies and Graphics 45 as well as gears from Paper Studio.


Happy Crafting

CHRISTMAS IS COMING!


Good Morning My Followers!

So today I am excited to share with you my first Christmas card of the season and I have decided to show a Christmas card each week leading up to Christmas! I am also entering this design in the FAB AND FUNKY CHALLENGE; Christmas.


Now the inspiration for this card was the amazing image from Gecko Galz Winter Beauties Collage Set and then I added some pretty trim from my stash papers by Canvas Corp, pained corrugated board strip, and rustic metal stars from Hobby Lobby craft store. I had a blast creating this card and invite you to share your Christmas creations on the challenge!

A LITTLE BIT SPOOKY SHRINE


Good Morning All

Today I am sharing a little Halloween shrine I did using a mini printers tray that I found at a dollar store, some amazing Gecko Galz images, some fun resin pieces from Michaels craft store and a sprinkle of glitter. I fell in love  with this wooden cut out of witches legs and knew I wanted that to be my topper of my shrine so I sprayed that and the printer tray with Graphite colored glimmer mist by Tattered Angels then using purple stickles I did the skirt and boot cuffs. Then with Smooch inks in Pumpkin color (how fitting) I painted her stockings. Next I printed the images from Gecko Galz Frightfully Delightful Craft Kit to fit the back of each tray section. I inked the edges to give it a vintage feel then adhered then with glue. Next I tore the edges of the three saying and placed them on the outer edge and added Orange peel Stickles around the edges. Last I placed three whimsical resing pieces.
Now I am entering it in a challenge put on by THE FUNKY JUNKY BOUTIQUE BLOG; Treats Not Tricks Challenge!
If you have a great Halloween treat go enter their challenge!

CUSTOM ORDER JOURNAL........Beauty and the beast



Good Morning to all my followers,

So as most of you know ....or may not know, I have an Etsy shop where I sell alot of my paper crafted products. And last week I got my first commission piece and when the buyer told me what she wanted I was so inspired and got to work right away! She asked me to do a journal/notebook based on the old tv series Beauty and the beast and preferred it to be of Vincent (the beast). So I found an amazing art piece on Pintrest and was inspired to do this journal.


So using some paper studio papers  and gold foil washi tape I covered the book then went into my stash found this amazing wooden frame, the metal clock, old coin, and a bird cage with a heart and a really cool saying bar from Tim Holtz that reads "Encourage your hopes not your fears". Using Glimmer mist, gold paint and patina sprays I colored the wooden frame then with UTEE and liquid glue I created the rustic metal look for the inside edge of the frame.
I had such a fun time doing this journal and now I am going to enter it in the CREATIVE ARTIST CHALLENGE BLOG ; Anything Mixed media goes
Wish me luck!

THERE IS A HERO IN ALL OF US


Good Morning Blog Peeps

Today I wanted to share some of my handmade journals with you. As some of you may or may not know I opened a new shop in Etsy called "FRIPPERIES AND BUTTERFLIES" where I am selling my works that I create. I am also looking at stepping back into the craft show ring this fall so I am busy getting my product stock up. So my main focus is hand made journals using composition notebooks and my boyfriend asked why I was not doing geek inspired books and I have to say I never thought of it. So here is my first set of books and I wanted to see what everyone thought of them so feel free to leave feedback.
Have a colorful day
