Feature Friday - Did you know...

As you all know I use Pinterest quite a bit for inspiration and also simply to just see what is out there for just about anything of interest to me.

Pinterest has added a new feature that is pretty amazing!

See that little magnifying glass in the corner? Click on it!

You'll remember from a previous blog post I did showing you some pretty sweet tricks within Pinterest, now they've added yet another great feature!  By clicking on that magnifying glass, it takes a section of the image and then looks over it's entire library and gives you the most popular pins that are similar to it.  Is that not the coolest feature ever?

There are so many great features on Pinterest - and yes, you may get side tracked...that's what I like to call inspiration....okay, maybe a ...squirrel!

November Mix Ur Media Kit!

**  UPDATED  - scroll down for some great ideas  **

Yes, it is here! It has once again been a very busy month and even though I was able to get the kits together, you all kept me so busy in the shipping end of things I literally had NO time to play!

I am really happy with this month's kit and can't wait to play with it (this weekend)!

This MUM kit is inspired by one of my favorite designers (that is no longer designing in the paper crafting world...insert sad face here) Jenni Bowlin!  For those of you that know me, know I use Jenni's products allot!  Or perhaps I should say...hoard her products allot! I create many layouts and pages that I like to call Junked Up Jenni!

Each of these kits has been coordinated with a great variety of products that will surely aid you in your next crafting project.  It is loaded and I mean loaded with goodies - paper, stamp, rub on, stickers, ephemera - my mind is already full of ideas.

Remember that not all kits will be the same, colors and patterns may vary depending on product availability.

Get yours while you can...limited quantities!  I will be creating with mine this upcoming weekend so will post some inspirations at the bottom of this post next week!

  **  NEW  **

**  Here are a couple of pages I worked on with the kit:  **

Using all bits and pieces of paper and ephemera from the kit, I layered them onto my journal base with Matte Medium

wanting to tone down the piece, I gave it a scratch coat of Gesso with my palette knife.

Once dired, I started dry brushing and finger painting Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Paints over a variety of her stencils.

I then added my stamped image using the stamp from my kit, doodles using my Uniball Signo Black Pen (all time fave). And of course a page would never be complete without the use of a FineLine Applicator filled with Black Fluid Acrylics (not to mention of few ink splats too)!! 

The next project was done in my Donna Downey Journal, and once again I started with a collage base using papers and ephemera from the kit.  Once it was down (using Matte Medium), I scraped on Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Paints using an old hotel keycard.

 One the opposite side, I layered a stencil (Stencil Girl from my stash) image using Gesso.

Here is a better view of the layout so far.... 

Now I pulled out my Art Fusion Rubber Stamps from Art to the 5th added some additional doodling and paints

This page -  doodled through a stencil (yellow), and of course added more stamp images and lines for words.

 Turned out pretty good I'd say!

Thanks for stopping by, be sure to come back soon and don't forget - December is the LAST month for Mix Ur Media Kits!  Once they are gone...they are gone for good.  

2016 will be the start of something new once again!

October Mix Ur Media Kit

Wow - where the heck did September go?  October came up on me way too fast and because of that...I really dropped the ball on getting samples done and arranging a guest designer for the month!

The kit has been created and is a great one yet again.  I sat down over the last few days and took some time to play with it.  This kit is full of great paper product looking to entice you into adding some collage to your next project.

This kit is once again loaded with texture and endless possibilities! Rub On, Stencil, Art Screens, vintage paper images, texture elements in tissue, paper, vellum, ribbon, metals and more! Can't wait to see what you create with it too!

Here are a couple projects that I worked on...

Inspired by...Collage!

I tore up the vintage paper images and textured wall paper and layered it over the gessoed page.

Decided you use one of Dyan Reaveley's paint combos she suggested - and yes, it does work!
I was on Pinterest earlier and saw an image that caught my eye - it 'kinda' reminded me of this color combo so thought...why not?!  Here is my take...

I took a sheet of the vintage images and free cut some circles!

Adhered them down with Matte Medium

Added some Daler Rowney FW Acrylics in Black so I could get the drip-age I was after.  I also accented the circles and lines within the page using my Faber Castell Stamper's Big Brush Pen in Black (best accent tool ever)!

spritzed with water to get the 'spider' legs I love so much.

It needed white, so used my Fineline Applicator filled with White paint and air brush medium 

The next page is one again inspired by...this time I think it was something I saw on Instagram, but I can't find it now (so sorry)!  The lady had basically loaded up either side of her journal with paper and ribbon then covered it with gesso.  I went one side...

I have used the vintage image papers again, vellum, tags and then the bottle cap and zipper pull.

I also wanted to try something a little different this time around.  I am only going to use the old hotel key card to apply all my mediums.  I used to adhere the papers onto the page (no gesso this time to start) using Matte Medium.  Next once it was (more or less) dry, I applied Gesso over the entire page. Really like how it came out! 

I cheated here a bit...I sprayed the bottle cap and zipper pull with Dyan Reaveley's Dylusions White Linen Spray.

Now I will have to continue this post later as I am out of time and I still have the page drying!!

I will be back soon....I promise!

In the mean time - be sure to head over to the shop to see all the NEW goodies (posting lots of new stuff today) and check out the new CLEARANCE section with huge discounts sure to entice you to add to your stash!
