halloween handy tags journaled

Hello bloggers!
This is my last post before Halloween. 
I've journaled my handy tags that I showed you here. You can get the supply list and how to's for the tags there.
I like to put my journaled tags in my Dylusions journal since it's a big journal.
I made a Distress spray with my shabby shutters reinker and water in a mini mister. I sprayed the journal page dried it and started using several stencils with Dylusions spray ink in black marble and melted chocolate. I used my Archival fern green ink pad with a cosmetic sponge and the burlap stencil. I used the melted chocolate and black marble sprays with the splatters and stripes stencils. I put apothecary remnant rubs here and there.
I was digging through some things and found these huge Prima flowers and leaves. I stamped the flower with the little number stamp from Wendy Vecchi's be inspired stamp set and Archival jet black ink. I attached the flower to a burlap flag along with a journaling ticket that I put tissue tape and vintage ribbon on. The x's are a Glitz large roller doodle stamp, fun for adding texture!
There are 3 stencils in this corner, the stripes, burlap and splatters, I love using stencils! The red drops are red pepper alcohol ink.
That's it, I hope you like the page!
Have a fun and s p o o k y Halloween!

she designed a life she loved

 Hey bloggers!
I did my first page in my new art journal and I love this journal!
The only thing is I've never used an inclusion  like this in anything. There are envy's, file folders and tags between the pages that need to be altered. It will be a challenge for me to use those unless I use them for the sentiments only, hmmmm. I'll have to ponder that.
 I got my new Prima doll stamp and I wanted to use her right away. I love her, she's not a little girl or a beauty queen, she's a pretty lady :) I paper pieced her dress and headband with paper from the Prima 6x6 Nature's Garden paper stack. The hearts and scallops on the bottom are from the stack. The background is torn pieces from the paper stack too.
I used some of my vintage lace and that flower, I don't know what it was used for, it looks like it's been crocheted or tatted on.

I've been pinning quotes on Pinterest to use in my journaling.
There are the eyelets I'm using up. I remembered them at the last minute :)
I've been having fun using remnant rubs and rub-ons. I love the little words in Tim's words rubs, they were perfect for the hearts.
I distressed some Prima wood flower embellishments with distress paint and stamping. I had some punched scalloped circles from sewing pattern tissue on my desk, I backed the flowers with that and punched small circles from the paper for the center of the flowers.

Supplies: stamps - prima mixed media doll stamp, sunrise sunset set, tim holtz tall text set. paper - prima tag pad (I stamped the doll on a tag and cut her out), prima 6x6 natures garden paper stack. ink -microm 08 black pen, archival jet black ink pad, copic markers 100 and e57, faber-castell black big brush pen. acces. - matte multi medium, embossing paste distress paint in spun sugar, broken china, bundled sage, gathered twigs. prima wood flower embellishments, eyelets, tim remnant rubs words, kaiser rub-ons, vintage lace. tools - mini silhouettes die set, prima stencil, mft jumbo scallop die, circle punch, heart punch,  glue gun.

Happy Friday bloggers!
I've got more Halloween tags to share along with some creepy "handy" treat bags.
I pinned this super cute idea I found on Pinterest using disposable vinyl gloves.

I made these for a few of my fave goblin's :)  
 I'll give you some links at the bottom of this post for the supplies I used. If you have any questions about anything I've done just shoot me an email!

 I was inspired by Donna Downey to use up certain things on your projects that you have hoarded. I decided I'm going to try and use eyelets on all of my projects in some way. I have SO MANY of them and I hate to throw them away. I couldn't sell them either because everyone has them I'm sure! So, I'm on a mission!

 supplies: stamps - Tim Holtz seasonal catalog and halloween blueprint. paper - #5 manila tags, Tim Holtz seasonal 8x8 paper stash, black and white cardstock. ink - dylusions black marble ink spray, distress weathered wood and rusty hinge ink pads, rusty hinge, peeled paint and barn door (for the blood drops, ewwww) reinkers, archival jet black, faber-castell black big brush pen. acces. - vinyl disposable gloves, Tim Holtz apothecary remnant rubs, tissue tape, black and orange eyelets, Tim Holtz label letters, crinkle ribbon, black twine. tools - crop-a-dile, Tim Holtz bats and crossbones garland die, water brush, blending tool, matt multi medium.
That's it, I hope you like today's project!
