Halloween Pumpkin

I decided to paint my pumpkin this year.  Normally I use those Mr. Potato head things that you poke into the pumpkin and leave the carving to my son.

Chalk Couture – Vision Board

Are you familiar with vision boards?  I did this on my wall with Chalkology Paste.  I did not seal this so if in the future I want to remove the paste I just have to spray it with water and wipe it off.

The “My Happy Masterpiece” transfer is a transfer that you can get when you sign up to be a designer, but the “Aww Yeah” and the Volks Wagon Bus (we called them double huggies when I was a kid) can be found here.

I wanted you to see that you really can use the inks and paste on just about anything.  Let your imagination run wild and have fun.

Let’s scrapbook together, it’s cheaper than therapy.

Altered General Foods International Coffee Tin

Reduce, reuse, recycle.  I just put a strip of paper around the tin, added a flower, some bling, and a butterfly.  I spray painted the lid and voila I have a pretty tin to hold my ribbon scraps.  Challenge for the week upcycle something around your house.

Mixed Media Canvas

I tried my hand at mixed media this weekend.  I don’t know if this is consider a true mixed media but I certainly had fun doing it.  I wanted this to look a little old.

I used a 6″ x 6″   canvas from Close to my Heart, Mowed Lawn Distress Stain for the green color on the canvas and a little dry brushed Gesso.  The rest is leftover odds and ends.  The camera doesn’t pick up the glimmer mists.  I used Log Cabin by Smooch Spritz and Primrose by Heidi Swapp on the canvas, flowers, lace trim, the chipboard heart and letters and jute twine.  The little fan design in the corner was done with Glossy Black Embossing Paste by Dreamweaver and a stencil I had laying around.  I used the Patina Paints by Vintaj on the little “Devoted” tag on the bottom but I didn’t like how it came out so I scraped it off.  After I put it all together I dry brushed Gesso over everything.

Close to my Heart Hinged Display Tray

This is a fun way to display some of your ephemera.  It’s out on display and you can touch it.  I just used glue dots to adhere all the rocks, the feather and the pipe cleaner penguin.  I did a little journaling in one of the squares.  There are so many fun things that can be done with this hinged display tray.  I have another tray that I’m going to lay flat so that it opens up like a box.  I think I’ll put some feet on it and of course decorate it.  All kinds of treasures can be stored in this (chocolate?! but I didn’t say that).

Close to my Heart My Creations Memory Game

The chipboard pieces are divided into three bucket list mini albums (one for each of my family members).  I punched one side with my cropadile and bound them with twine.  Then I lined one side of each chipboard page for journaling the bucket list and left one side for a photo of the bucket list item.  This is great for looking back on if you start feeling depressed or discouraged and even negative.  We need to fill our lives and homes with these mood lifting, positive things to keep us on track.
