I'm a bad girl...

Hi Everyone,
I'm up on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog today.


Well, I didn't plan to do two reading themed items this month for them, but it happened.  I'm a huge reader.  It's not often that I am not in the middle of a book.  Any reader will tell you that they always need bookmarks.  Yes, I've used napkins, receipts, post it notes, and other random bits of paper to mark my pages.  I wanted to make a little something nice to actually mark my page.

I covered one of the Extra Large Chipboard Tags using vintage card catalog cards.  The edges were embossed using Emerald Creek's Salted Raven just to add a little bit extra. 
I painted my Medium Circle Border using Distress Paints in Picked Raspberry, Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Black Soot, and Spiced Marmalade and glued it on my tag.  
I added the vintage image and verbiage using foam tape.  Since the circles make the background uneven I used different layers of tape to make the image flush.  
Easy and now I can mark my book nicely!

Mistress of Myself

I am super excited to share my first post for The Blank Page Muse Rubber Stamp Company!  Our theme this month is Turquoise, Silver, and Sparkle.  Here's what I came up with for you.
I started by using an image from the A Wing Above the Rest Stamp Set.  This little beauty comes with some wings already, but I wanted to add a little more.  Once I stamped my image I just trimmed off the wings. 
I colored the Image using Distress Crayons and a waterbrush.


The chipboard wings were painted a shimmery turquoise and then embossed.  

I stamped the Chain link Pattern Background onto tissue paper.  I then adhered the tissue to a canvas banner using Pellon Ez-Steam. 

Once the tissue is adhered I colored it using inks in various blue hues.  I love embossing the edges for a grungy look. 

I sprinkled embossing powder randomly on the pennant and heat to set. 

I stamped the sentiment from the Words by Jane Sentiments set and then edge using black ink. 

Finally. I adhered everything to the pennant and used black tulle behind the focal point.  




Don't forget to stop by the blog and the facebook page for more inspiration!

Snarky New Year!

Happy New Year from this party animal!
If you made it until midnight, then you stayed up later than me.  I never make it until midnight.  I have a little project for you today that shows you that I really know how to party.
I used the Tiny Matchbox Theatre from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts to make my party animal box. 
 I covered the box with old book paper.
I used Dina Wakley Paints to add some pops of color.  The edges have some Distress Crayon in Hickory Smoke and Black Soot. 

The image inside is from Lisa's Altered Art and it is popped up using foam tape.  I added the little party hat and book.  There's some fun washi tape behind her just for visual interest.  

I hope you have an amazing 2018! 
Jess
