Journaling out of the box

Hello!!!!  It's Friday and that is always a good thing in my book :)  Looking forward to a very quiet weekend!

Today I'm here to share with you a journaling out of the box that I did with a cute little image from Sandra Caldwell it's called Cowgirl chick and you can find it here:

I made a video of my process if you are interested:

I call those little cards journaling out of the box because it's basically a little bit of mixed media journaling but on a little playing card and then I store those in a drawer/box to display them in my living room.  It's fun working with a different size and out of a typical "book/journal" format.


The background already had a lot of stuff on it because I had used left over paints in previous project on the blank card in order not to waste.  The sentiments are cut out of magazines.  I have also done some doodling on this using my faber castell pit pen.  The cute little chick was colored with my coloring pencils.

I'm entering this journaling card in the following challenges:

  1. Little miss muffet challenges - anything goes
  2. a inky mess - Anything goes
  3. Crafting circle - anything goes
  4. create and inspire - Anything goes
  5. Digichoosday - anything goes
That's it for me for today!  Hope you have a great day.

New release images from Sandra Caldwell


Hello everyone!  There's a brand new release over at Sandra Caldwell  and it's a double one because Sandra took a short break :)

I had the chance to play with gift box kitty and that was just perfect to make a layout in my ABC journal to introduce the newest member of our family!  I still don't have it but should in a few days now.

I have made a video of the process you can see it here:


And here is what it looks like.  Since I was working in a book I didn't want to use too much wet media because the paper is not the best for that sort of application.  But I still did put a bit of dylusion paint down as my base.  I also used some archival ink to stamp and make marks.

The cute image was colored with my copics and then fussy cut out.
 Here is the 2nd image that I worked with. The video of that process will be shown on Sunday.

This journaling was done with the super cute image BEST FRIENDS FOREVER!  And I used my envelope journal to make this.  I have been working since last summer on this journal and I would really really like to complete it finally!!!!!  And move on to other journals.
The background to this page is done in panpastel.  I added some washi tape, some book paper as well.  I colored the image with my copics and fussy cut it out.  The stamps were done using stamplorations stamps.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

I hope you all have a fabulous Friday!!!!

I have been having fun in a book that I purchased from Dollartree.  I'm doing blackout poetry.  And while I'm doing this I also want to have added interest to that book and that is being done right now with this great image.

Steampunk Silly

Hello everyone!  I'm hosting a challenge over at Sandra Caldwell FB page it's all about Steampunk!  And she put 6 yes 6 images for sale at 1/2 off!!!  Including 2 new release!!!

I have made a few videos that will be airing in the following days but one is on today.  I made a JOOTB (journaling out of the box) here is the video if you want to see that one.  This shows me using the gorgeous Bearly a Steampunk that you can find here.
And here are 2 cards that I made.  There were some birthdays coming up and even if I didn't use birthday sentiments I thought they were perfect for those b-day.

The 1st one is using a digi that Sandra created for this challenge.  She offered it to me the day that my baby Max passed.  I told her how much it meant to see this kitty since I had just lost mine.  Sandra gave me the biggest surprise of all by naming the digi after my baby!  So here is Steampunk Kitty Max.  I colored him like my tabby kitty.  And I'm giving this card to my oldest son for his birthday next week.  He loves cats and I'm sure that this will mean a lot to him as well.
The paper that I used for this make is from Bobunny I think.  I'm losing track of my papers lol.  I used a sentiment that I thought was quite fitting with this little guy and I fussy cut the image and the sentiment.  The image was colored with my copics as well as some coloring pencils and Chameleon pens.

Here is the 2nd card that I made this time using Full body Steampunk hippo that you can find here.
The papers that I used for this card are from a pack of scraps from AC Moores and some scraps from my desk.  I also added a sentiment found online.  I fussy cut the image and it was colored with my new Chameleon pens.  I really love those pens.  I added some wood gears to finish it off.  Since there were 2 corners that felt blank I added some stamping for those.

I'm entering those cards in the following challenges:

  1. Alphabet challenge blog - D is for Decoupage
  2. jw scrap shack - Anything goes
  3. Qkr stampede - Feminine card or anything goes - ok you might not believe me but the hippo card was for an amazing friend the godmother of my oldest son.  I thought she would love the sentiment!  And she did :)  So it was for a women.
  4. 2craftycrittercrazies - Anything goes with a critter
  5. Shopping our stash - Back to basic fussy cut - did that for both cards.
Hope you have a great weekend!  Here the weather is dreary but at least I will be able to craft!!!  Miss it!!!

To make this card I used some papers from my stash (got lots and didn't mark what it was down).  The sentiment was stamped using small alphabet stamps.  I put the little owl on a wobble so that he shakes shakes shake :)  The image itself was colored with my Chameleon pens.  Still learning how to use them!

I always have trouble making masculine cards but I think this one came out pretty good!

Soul book start

Well I finally did it!!!  I started out my soul book!  I'm so happy about that because I have been wanting to do something to document this year and having a hard time to commit to something. This seems like something that I can totally do.  I have found the soul book via the youtube channel of Christie B and you can also find her blog here.

And I had been super lucky to have a great shop owner on Etsy give me one of her beautiful mandalas.  You can see the mandala that I used here.  It's from Coloring Craft Shack.

I have made a video to share with you all my mental process through this.  It was quite emotional and unexpected.  I didn't start of thinking that I would do this entire page... it just happened.


And here is the journaling spread that I have made.
As my son said this is totally not my typical style... but I really love how it turned out.  It's the start page of the book.  I used some acrylic paints, a stencil, a stamp from Eclectica and some stamping with a mat, stabilo pencil and some pitt pen.  The mandala was colored with some gel pens as well as coloring pencils.  And then I fussy cut it out.

I'm entering this spread in the following challenges:
  1. 613 Avenue Create - Anything goes and I didn't really do the spring but it is spring colors
  2. Dragonfly dreams challenges - Anything goes
  3. Corrosive challenges by janet - Anything goes
  4. My time to craft challenge - No design papers
  5. More mixed media challenge - Option yellow... didn't use much a bit but not much
That's it for me for today.  Hope you have a great Tuesday!!!

Spring Bud Hippo - Sandra Caldwell new release

Hello and happy Friday everyone!  What a week.  I have been working later at work... this means getting home later... preparing the meal later and obviously after eating well it's time for bed... almost anyway lol.  This means no crafty time for me and I miss it!!!

But because it's Friday it also means that there are new release over at Sandra Caldwell's etsy store.  And you can find this super cute Spring Bud Hippo there.

I made a video of the process of this.


And here is a closer look at my mixed media journaling out of the box.  The sentiment was found online and typed on a word document and then torn out.

I used a bunch of left over papers for this as well as a silicone mat for stamping.  The texture paste is from Heidi Swapp.  I colored the super cute hippo with my copics and then fussy cut her out.  I added a bit of sparkly washi at the bottom so that she is kind of doing a tight rope split lol.

I'm entering this mixed media piece in the following challenges:

  1. Crafting by designs - Anything goes
  2. Crafty sentiments - anything goes
  3. Inspiration destination challenge blog - Anything goes
  4. Crafty gals corner challenges - 3 plus layers - I put a lot of layers on this as you can see on the video :)
  5. Tuesday throwdown - Tropical critters.
That's it for me for today!  Hope you have a great rest of the day and that you will be able to craft :)

Lucy Loo "sniff" - The East Wind new release

Well there's a brand new release image by Unky over at the East Wind Etsy store. And because it's a Lucy Loo I just HAD to play with her.

However I'm very sad because I made a video to share with you all and my memory card bugged... and so the video didn't register properly :(

I was playing in one of my junk journal, the one that I made for my vacation last year but didn't really use.

I found a sentiment in a magazine that I thought would go well with her.

The background to the page is done in Panpastel.  I had done the entire book that way to have some sort of background.  I used some of my newest washis :)  love love love washi (you can see my haul's videos about that lol).  The image was colored with my copics and then I fussy cut her out.  I added some gel roll pen to her wings.  I also used a silicone mat to do some stamping.  And I got some paper scraps from a fellow youtuber and used some of it here.

I'm entering this journaling in the following challenges:

  1. Color inspiration monday - Anything goes hand colored
  2. Dragonfly dreams challenges - Anything goes
  3. We love 2 create - Anything goes mixed media
  4. Crafts and me inspiration - Things with wings
That's it for me for today!  Have a great day!!!

This last one is for a little girl and I used one of the great images that I had for a long time.  I couldn't find it in the store so it might have been a freebie at one point because Bugaboo digi store has freebies every Friday.

I decided to  use this great sketch:

And here is my card.

Opening Flower - Alphabet journaling

Hey everyone!  Hope you are having a fabulous weekend.  I'm still sort of out of it.... the vacation made it hard for me to get back into a routine.  I'm kind of out of it.  And because of the vacation I'm a day late to share this make with the great new release freebie image of The East Wind.

All you need to do to be able to get this great image is to register for the news letter!  And you can find the newsletter registration on this site.

I wanted to play in one of my other journals.  One that has been quite neglected actually.  Last year after seeing KagedFish on youtube show her alphabet scavenger hunt I thought I would do the same thing.  So I set up a book to use for that.  But you know me.... I have trouble just gluing papers down without putting some sort of journaling to it.... so I ended up using it for alphabet but with some digital images and basically journaling but with alphabet.  And then I just let it be and didn't play in it anymore...

So today it's playing with it :)  Of course since it's just a book it's better if I don't use too much wet medium so I limited it to some Tattered Angel inks (some of the new ones that I got :) )

Here is the video of my making this:
And here is the journaling page upclose

I colored the image with my copics and then used some gell roll pen on the dress a bit.  I used some little bits of papers that had been sent to me by Rosaleen (this and that on youtube).  Around the bird I used some blue stabilo pencil and used some water to make it spread a bit.  The tattered angel sprays used are from the set Lucky and the set Easter.  The fun part of this journaling is that there is book text already in the back of this therefore some interest already created that doesn't need to be added.

I'm entering this journaling in the following challenges:

  1. Altered eclectics - Anything goes no card
  2. Connie can crop - Reuse reduce recycle - I'm using a book for the journal, the bits of papers where left over that a fellow crafter gave me instead of throwing away (you can see the bottom piece of paper is one that had been used for dies or something of the sort).
  3. Crafty hazelnuts patterned paper - Anything goes using patterned paper
  4. A bit more time to craft - Anything goes
  5. Creatalicious challenges - Anything goes with the option of flowers - used a digi that had a flower on it.
That's it for this post.  Hope you like what I have done and will go and check out the newsletter!

Hugs
