Butterfly Tag for Viva Las VegaStamps

I'm on the blog today over at Viva Las VegaStamps with a little tutorial using Miracle Tape.

Please hop on over and check it out, love to read your comments!

The Miracle Sheets are so versatile, you can use them with all kinds of embellishments, such as glitter, beads, flocking etc. For me the most important fact is, that I can use it with my BigShot to cut all shapes I desire AND heat emboss the die cuts.



Happy Thursday and Happy Crafting ♥

Art Journaling with Viva Las VegaStamps!

Good morning, my friends!

I'd like to show you another Art Journal page which I created for Viva Las VegaStamps.

I used Distress Oxides in three different colours on my watercolour paper and applied some texture with a stencil. For a bit more interest, I did some stamping with the scribble circle and the crossmarks background stamp.

I stamped the scribble heart overlapping, the second time without re-inking. 

I had to stamp the sentiment twice, since I changed the words just a bit (Excuse me, Mr. Warhol!)

The exclamation mark is from this sentiment: 9184!

I distressed the edges, et voilĂ , ready is my journal page.



I used the following stamps:


I used some Miracle Tape to glue my page into my journal! 

Happy Crafting and a Happy week for you all!

Art Journaling for Our Mixed Media Moods

For the current challenge at Our Mixed Media Moods I created this page.

I just knew I would get stuck on Pink. I should've left it there and start all over with other colors, but I kept going on and on, until I was so frustrated that I almost dumped it in the trash. But then I thought I might as well face my bad moods and failures and show it after all. .......
