Easter tag journaled

Remember the tag I did on this post?
I said I'd probably start putting my not so bumpy, lumpy tags I make in my art journal?
this is it....
I tried out some new supplies I got recently, Tim's classis faves #6, around the border of the page (looks like Inspiration Emporium's out of stock right now, but, you can contact them to be added to the list), some faber-castell water color pencils and some liquitex molding paste, mixed media goodness I got at Hobby Lobby!
You can click the link above to see the supply list for the tag.
I glued the 7gypsies paper to the page with Claudine Hellmuth's multi-medium matte then I stamped the borders with Archival coffee ink on to white cardstock. Before I glued that down I got some molding paste and added a little bit of pink sherbet paint from the paint dabber and mixed it up, looks like strawberry icing! Then I got out my plastic doily I got at a thrift store, someone took a lot of time to crochet around them. I got 5 of these I think for cheap and a couple of them were tore so I used it for my stencil, worked like a charm!
I laid down the stencil and scraped the molding paste on with an old plastic card and lifted it up, then I heat set it with my heat tool. I love the dimension!

I hope y'all have a beautiful Easter.
Were having a non-traditional Korean meal here, too bad my sister-in-law is not here to fix it for us, her cooking is just scrumptious!

IE challenge #2

I thought I'd sqeeze in another 3D project for the Inspiration Emporium March challenge before St. Pat's Day.
I was searching for jewelry for the big day and came across several necklaces that I knew I could recreate with my goods from Inspiration Emporium. 
I thought it was a great idea to have this to wear if you didn't have a green outfit.

I made my shamrocks from a heart in Dylusions Love Struck Lucy stamp set. I stamped them on shrink plastic with Archival jet black ink, I drew a stem with a black Copic marker and colored them with a green Copic. 
I spilled the little vial of glitter only once before I got smart and glued the cork in!
These corked vials do not have a bail on the cork for the chain to go through. So, I took a straight pin and stuck it through the bottom of the cork, I cut of the point off the pin and used my pliers to bend it around and make a bail.
ink - archival jet black, copic markers black 100 and green yg17.
acces. - ideaology ball chain, corked vial, jump rings, pearl, green glitter, stick pin, shrink plastic.
tools -  heat tool, hole punch, jewelry pliers.
Good News!
Online Card Classes' is having a new class, Pattern Play, and Inspiration Emporium is giving away 3 spots to this class, go over to Inspiration Journal and find out how to enter!
Have fun creating your 3D master piece, upload it to the Inspiration Journal, you have until the end of March!
Have a great St. Patrick's Day, thanks for stopping by!

Inspiration Emporium March Challenge

I'm sooo happy it's March, I can't wait for warm weather, it just makes me happy!
I'm happy with this month's challenge at Inspiration Emporium too!
The challenge is to make something that's 3-D, anything, from pop-n-cuts to foam squares to Idea-ology Configurations!
This is my first altered configurations box, I know, I know, I'm slow :)
I love altering stuff like this, the hardest part was trying to get the pic of my grands printed off my phone, my pic software is a nightmare, uggggh.
Anyway, this was so much fun. I have to give prop's to HeyJack my cat, for finding the A & W rootbeer mug monkey, he was playing with it in the floor, and I spotted it, ah-ha, perfect! :)
I took a bunch of pic's so you can see it all up close.
I love, love, love the lantern!
I thought the red eyes were fitting for this feline, they do fit him well.
Thanks for finding the monkey, Jack!
It's your turn, go check out the challenge at the Inspiration Journal, make your project, upload it and see if you're this month's winner of the $50 in store goods, woohoo!

IE Easter tag

Here comes Peter Cottontail...
Every Easter my family and my brothers family would head to mom and dad's for a visit and the Easter egg hunt. Mom would always have the eggs colored and ready to go, happy memories! This year I'm getting the grands a mini Scentsy Buddy instead of all that candy, oh, I might get a few things :)
I got out my Alterations mini bunny die for this tag, he's perfect for all the Easter cards, tags and gifts.
I've decided to put my tags I make in my art journal as long as they're pretty flat, I can make a background and glue the tag on the page. I have them hanging on a big binder ring and I think this will be a better way to display them. So the next time you see this tag it will probably be on a journal page.

paper - 7 gypsies,pattern paper and ranger adirondack distress cardstock.
stamps - su! rough edges alpha (for the sentiment) and splatter stamp for the background.
ink - ranger distress broken china, walnut stain, distress stain in bundled sage and antique linen (to color the crinkle ribbon) weathered wood.
acces. - tag, crinkle ribbon, brown twine, may arts ribbon, little white pom-pom, kaiser pearls, heidi grace rub ons - retired.
tools - alterations mini bunny and bow, regal crest and mini tattered florals die sets, 1 1/4" circle punch (for the flower center), corner punch, blending tool and tiny attacher.
Inspiration Emporium has new releases coming in everyday, you need to check it out!

This months challenge is to do a 3-D project or anything to make your work pop!
Head on over the IE Journal to see the challenge. Have you met the new IE designers, they are some talented ladies! You can read up on them on the blog too. 

That's it, thanks for stopping by!
