12 Tags of 2014-August

     Lately, I have had very little time to craft. However yesterday, by some miraculous divine intervention, I had about an hour for my art. So I sit down to make something


     I was sooooo frustrated. Oh and for added pressure, I wanted to film my process because my YouTube channel has been so neglected. Whenever I am feeling uninspired, I go to Pinterest. While I was there I came across some a tag done by Tim Holtz for his web series, 12 Tags of 2014. I never participate, but for some reason I just had to recreate this tag.

     And so, this tag was born. Not as good as coming up with my own original idea, but I will take what I can get. In case you are unfamiliar with Tim Holtz, here is his tag along with his tutorial .
Tim's Tag

My interpretation of Tim's tag.

The Dina Wakley Media Stamps are amazing quality!

The modeling paste is subtle, but I like that about it.

The metal and stitching details make me very happy!

Thank you so much for stopping by!


  1. The stitching and metal make me happy too! And shhhh I like yours better than Tim's.

  2. very cool tag!!!!! I love your interpretation and what I really love about it is that you didnt flat out copy his, you let his inspire yours and came together beautifully!!!!! (shhhh I think I like it better then the original, dont tell Tim I said that lol)

  3. Just stunning Jenn! I miss you on You Tube. I hope the move went well.

Our Mixed Media Moods "Trust"

We are back, baby! DeeDee and I took a little break but we are back with our monthly collab "Our Mixed Media Moods.

So without further ado....

Here is this month's mood board!
We are using transparent layers, transparency, fabric, stitching, text, vintage book text, wood, fibers, vintage sewing patterns, tissue paper, machine sewing, encaustic, weaving, scribbles and mark making, browns, tans, whites, creams, vintage colors

For my project I used a lot of elements from the board. I started with using the color scheme. I also used transparent layers and book text.

I used some resin papers and machine sewing. I even tried hand stitching. I stitched my chipboard word with white embroidery thread. I also tried some French knots under my main cluster. 

I used the "trust" chipboard piece as my wood element because it looked a …

"Create Joy" || Mini Junk Journal

I have the first page in my mini junk journal to share today!

It is on ledger paper which I made sure to cover with clear gesso so the paper would hold up. it is a very Dina Wakley-esque page, with a splot of Dylusions Ink and some magenta paint. It came together very quickly, which is exactly what I wanted for this 'art everyday' venture.

To see exactly how I made it, you can watch the process video at the end of this post. There is also a complete supply list with links to everything I used on this page.
