Stormy Night Journal Page

Good morning everyone!  Today, I have a stormy journal page to share with you made with a bunch of Technique Junkies Stamps.  Yeah, it's kind of a tribute to Snoopy, who kept trying to write a book.  He always started with "It was a dark and stormy night".  So here's my take on it:

The journal page is watercolor paper, so I misted it lightly with water and then sprayed on Art Anthology Marlin, Sandcastle, and Plush Colorations.  Once that dried, I stamped the background using the Technique Junkies Wasted stamp and Sepia ink.

Next, I stamped the typewriter from the Technique Junkies Just My Type stamp set onto a piece of mixed media paper using Versifine Ink.  I cut that out and adhered it to my page.  Next, I stamped "dark and stormy night" from the Just My Type set directly onto the page with Versifine ink.

I then stamped Dark, Stormy, Night using the Technique Junkies Almano Upper and Lower Alphabet with Numbers set and Versifine Ink.  Lastly, I went around the edges with a black Pitt Big Brush Pen.

I love this page and hope the recipient does also (it's for a swap).

Until later........................

Christmas Ball Jar Tag

Good morning everyone!  I have another Technique Junkies project for your today.  Christmas is right around the corner and I wanted to celebrate that fact by creating a Christmas-y tag.  My husband always loves finding homemade jams and jellies, most of which are packaged in Ball jars.  That was the inspiration for this tag:

I stamped Vortex and then embossed it with Faded Jeans Distress Embossing Powder.  I then sprayed the tag with Art Anthology Rustic Colorations.  The embossing acts as a resist.  I then stamped the jar from the Incrediball Canning Jar Set and stamped on of the labels from the Incrediball Labels in the center.

Next I painted the jar with Art Anthology Ferrari Sorbet to mimic strawberry jam.  I tied a piece of green fiber around the top and then popped it on my tag using foam squares.  I then stamped Merry Christmas on a piece of mixed media paper, sprayed with Granny Smith Colorations, blotted, and then filled in the words with green Stickles.  I also outlined my tag with green Stickles.

Finally, I tied a piece of red fiber into a box at the top.  Easy peasy!

Until later.................................

You've just seen Judy Jackson's project and isn't her work just awesome?!?!  She creates an amazing range of gorgeous cards.

Here is the hop participants in order:
I saw this shoe and just had to make a tag with it.  The stamp is Love My Shoes and it's fabulous.

To start, I stamped the Love My Shoes directly on my tag.  I then stamped the image again on a sheet of copy paper and cut it out to use as a mask.  With the mask laid over the shoe, I then sprayed the tag with Art Anthology Colorations in Salmon and Siesta Key.

Next, I painted the shoe with Art Anthology Sorbet in Ferrari, Cayman, and Leaf and with Velvet in Tango and Lemon Tart.  I then dotted clear drying glitter glue all over the tag and sprinkled with Prills in Gourd-Jus and Berry Nice.

I then stamped Celebrate in Style with blue ink, cut it out, and sprayed it with Salmon Colorations.  I then adhered it to the tag.

To finish off the tag, I added some red and yellow fiber through the hole at the top.
