Tesla Inspired Wall Art

another prima wooden box

This was created for a friend’s Husband.

I absolutely love the wooden boxes Prima put some of their accessories in now they are fantastic to recycled into these little art pieces.

I covered this one in Tissue tape, then Matt Multi Medium followed by some Alcohol ink. I think you will agree it comes up a treat.

Then it was a matter of playing around and choosing bits to see what would go where and then sticking it all down.

Of course most of this is Idea – ology with a few watch parts and other random bits thrown in,

I really love how these turn out just wish I had more of the little wooden trays.

It is that time of the Month again 🙂 Time to Share my Take on Tim’s Tag.

 

Have to say I really loved working with the Ranger Texture Paste, I have used impasto, modelling paste, gel medium and even Embossing paste all have their good and bad points but I have to say the Ranger Texture Paste is so quick and simple and easy to remove mostly cause it does not coat onto the outside of your stencils the way others do.

 

Anyway I did leave out one element and that was further stamping my tag which by the time I realised it was just far to late so I left well enough alone.

Recycled Embellishment Tray

prima tray

I have to say it is so lovely to not have to feel like I need to hoard my idea-ology embellishments.

This is a Tray that had locks and keys in it.

I covered it in Tissue tape, then coated that with Matt Multi Medium, dried it and added some alcohol ink over the top. Super happy with how the technique turned out and will def use it again.

I then pulled out a mix of Idea-ology and watch parts and bingo my little tray was created.

Have to say I am really chuffed with how this has turned out.

12 Tags of 2014 – April

My life seems to have turned into a juggling act where I feel like I am on a bit of a treadmill always trying to catch up.

So today I took some me crafting time to do my Tag for this month, sadly I do not as yet have any of the new dies, cork sheeting or Tattered Pinecone die (believe me it has been on my wishlist for a while now)

 

Tim’s Tag showcases 3 techniques this month, the first with Distress Paint and tissue tape, one with the new dies, and the last with the tattered pinecone rose.

So I had to get really creative with it. I like to include at least 2 of techniques that we have been taught.

 

Here is My tag

 

My Tak on Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014

My Tak on Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014

I started with the background and used stormy Sky Distress Paint and a mix of the blue inks and ye olde vintage photo, the paint does not stand out as much as I got a bit confused and forgot to mist before I set them oh well live and learn I am still really happy with the finished product so all good.

I then Die cut a Quickutz boarder die I have out of thin chipboard as well as some pattern paper and a piece of mirrored sheeting to fill in some of the hearts. I used my blending tool with vintage photo on the patter paper (which is from the Prima Pad Almanac) and misted it to tone it back down. I also painted stormy sky onto the thin chip and blended a little vintage photo over the top.

I coloured some Crinkle ribbon with my blending tool and misted it, dried it and added it along the bottom with a tag, and some blue paper string. Along with an Idea o logy Key.

I then cut out some small royal roses from the same paper I used in the heart, added some vintage photo to the back and over the pattern as well as the edges. Decided where I wanted them

and Viola this months Tag. Well not quite it took me quite a long time to do I really struggle with tags. I don’t know why but I find them harder than making a card or layout. So what sounds simple actually took me a good few hours to sort out and execute.

Aged Pirate Card

Have to say I am so happy with how this turned out.


pirate card

 

I made it for a friend who reminds me of a Pirate and when I set out to make the card I thought oooh I want to do a treasure type map card.

I forgot how much I love to make something look old and aged even if it was white to begin with.

The background is a combo of Handmade distress re-inker mists, glimmer mist, and Tsukinedo walnut mist.

I used stamps from Tim Holtz, prima and some from a cheap pirate and princess set I have mostly stamped in Distress ink and Archival Jet Black.

There is tissue tape underneath the film strip ribbon (my first use of it on a card or anything of my own work other than the Tim Holtz workshop a couple of years ago)

And I even parted with one of the Idea-ology skull and crossbones charms which I rubbed a little bit of distress paint over to make it fit the card a wee bit better.

Anyway that is my Aged Pirate Card that I had a lot of fun experimenting and stepping out of my usual clean uncluttered style with.

12 Tags of 2013- August

It is that time again (where is this year flying to?

See The Original Tim Holtz Tags Here

And here is my take:

 photo 12tagsAugust_zps57e379df.jpg</a

Other than Substituting Iced Spruce stain for the weathered wood and creating my own mask with cardstock and repositionable tape (something I learned from The Online Card Classes I took a while back).

I used the Air Travel Stamp Set as well as a Donna Salazar Stamp from my prize pack I won last year.

Along with frayed burlap stain, weathered wood ink, and some leftover letterpress ink on the brayer that made the funky black patterny marks.

Add in some tissue tape and some Alphabet stickers and that is pretty much this months pages 🙂

12 Tags July Edition

My time has been flying along, due to a foggy lense I had to re take my pics so this has kind of been waiting to be blogged for about a week now (oops)

Click to see Tim’s Take on July’s 12 tagsI 

and here is my Take on the techniques:
 photo julyjournal_zps2bac9318.jpg
I loved Tim’s brayer technique and as soon as I saw it had the thought of how cool it would be to allow the colours to blend together a little, of course I tried 4 different pieces of white cardstock and each one turned out completely differently so I went with it.

Instead of doing each colour separately like Tim did I dropped a few drops of each colour on my craft mat. Then bounced the brayer over the colours. You can see the results in my background.

I used a bella chipboard frame covered in Rock Candy Crackle and then some various stains.

What I love the most about the frame is the piece of worn leather that is actually from an old Jeans Label that was so worn whatever had been in it before was gone so I stamped one of Tim’s Stamps on it from a travel set I have. Stamped in Fired Brick

I also used the big map stamp with weathered wood distress ink for a little bit of background texture.

Added in some stickers I got off ebay that fit in with the whole Tim Holtz look. Added some tissue tape, and buttons and viola My Mixed Media Journaling Page for July (along with Tim’s Alphabet cards for the July)
