Bright Ideas

I found this cute mini note pad holder at Walmart. I used some red CTMH embossing powder on my 3rd Eye stamp to make the background. I then used the lightbulbs and kardiogram 3rd Eye stamps to embellish. I'm here at Iron Mountain with my girls. Sorry for the low lite photos. 3rd Eye stamps used: TES-006, TES-041, TES-016.

Sister- February Reveal for Paper Mixing Bowl

Red Velvet Cake is our theme in the kitchen this month! Loads of layers with red, cream and brown. I went in the direction of creams with hints of the other two colors.

Head over to The Paper Mixing Bowl to cook up something neat with us.

My focus in this layout is of the photos of my sister, Kristina, which I took about 5 years ago.  I loved these photos. I also paired some red flowers. Thank you to Homer and his book The Odyessey for lending some pages to my layout.

For my layer cake, I used my photos and book pages, doily punch  and old papers with pictures of stamps. For my frosting I used some moldeling paste mixed with ink to make my butterscotch frosting. For my pairs of course the 2 pairs of photos and the 2 red flowers.. the 2 clock symbols, 2 DUSTY ATTIC chipboard pieces. My rings are from the bottom of my Mtn Dew can dipped in Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

For my directions I just know of the love I feel for my sister. We seem to go thru a lot in our lives but we always try to stand by each other. Thank you sis no matter where we are in the world or even down the street from each other you are loved. The Fleur symbol is a nod to her matching tattoo. Here is the finished product  resembling a messy desk:

Prima papers yum!

3rd Eye Challenge - 13 STITCHES

Here's my crazy take for the "13" Challenge over at 3rd Eye. The title is 13 STITCHES.
I love my 3rd Eye stamps. This is my first ever Art Journal page.
I also used some fibers that came in my Scraps of Darkness Creativity Kit. Those were a bit .. hairy to work with. LOL

I was experimenting with the stamps.  This piece is not meant to be pretty. I used the white crackle paint to simulate a mask. Is her mask falling away and her real appearance is showing? Is she part fish, or dragon or snake or just a scaly cold person?  Is she trying to break free but can't?  Is she forced to be silent? or are the leaves and paint and fake hair all a part of her mask.. who is she underneath. It's just an Art Journal page and me playing with my Gelatos.. .all the ones I could find in Michaels. I need to find the yellow /green ones.

PS : YOU WILL NEVER GUESS WHAT I USED AS A MASK FOR THE ROUND DOTS ON HER FACE!!! LET'S JUST SAY I RECYCLED A PRODUCT.. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT I USED LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW. LOL.

Supplies used :
3rd Eye - Leaf-- TES-026
Stickles- Waterfall
CTMH embellishment on the eye
The Rubber Cafe - Black Puffy Paint
Liquitex - Modeling Paste
Distress Ink - Tea Dye
Distress Marker-Black Soot, Antique Linen, Spun Sugar
Fiber Castell- all the colors I own
Embellishment Village - Fibers
Fiber Glue- Stiffy-by Plaid
Crackle Paint - White

13 Stitches

MODELING PASTE, STAPLES, FIBERS AND CRACKLE PAINT

MY HIDDEN 13 IN THE STITCHES

MODELING PASTE USING A SECRET MASK, AND STITCHING  OF THE LIPS

A LIGHTER VERSION


I decided to make her face all in leaves. This was very different for me.
I used the powder on the fibers.. first pour the powder then put on the fiber and then put the craft sheet and the hot iron on it. It stuck to the sheet. So then I tried the glue version and that was even more sticky. I'm not sure which method works best. I'll figure it out.
Thank you so much for looking and leaving a comment. 
Have a blessed day.
Happy Scrappn!
