Faux Washi Tape Creations

 I played with making some faux washi tape this weekend after a friend of mine posted a mixed media challenge about it on Splitcoaststampers.  She said masking tape was the easiest method so I set out to try it. 

This is my first one.  Just painted on some acrylic paint and then stamped a Dina Wakley Scribble bird.  Linking to **Art*Journal*Journey* where Wendy has us playing with birds this month. 

Did some of the strips with a ruler stamp from DRS Designs and a Darkroom Door stencil. 
This worked out well to cover up a page I had previously done on Psalms 148.  This time I focused on how this Psalm tells us everyone and everything should praise the Lord - including birds.  Lovely Psalm and I am glad I could use this faux washi tape to cover up a design I did not like.

I had so much fun making this faux tape that I did another set of tape and made another BAJ page plus a card.  I was inspired by some Christmas washi tape on the Cute Tape site (the inspiration site on this weekend) and THIS great card by Dacia on 

After all the paint dried (I used Dina Wakely acrylics), I peeled it off and made the page and card. 

My bible page is Isaiah 41:19 where God lets us know He does billions of things to help and save us - even putting water and trees where we need them.  I know there are hundreds of better interpretations of this chapter and verse than this.  Much deeper and cooler, but this is how I chose to interpret this one.  He has given us so much and we take it for granted.  

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Oh handmade washi tape, how marvellous. I like the first one with the bird and the dots and patterns and then the Christmas tree ones are super as well. I wonder if you painted on to paper or sticky tape, I suppose either would work. I also had a little (?) foray into your link to Cute Tape, thanks.

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Bit of Tea, Horses, and a Cowboy

 I love when my children follow in my footsteps and beyond (only the cool footsteps, of course).   My daughter, Allie, has developed a love of tea.  She sent me this picture over the weekend of her having tea in her newly remodelled bedroom.   She was drinking Breakfast in Paris tea in one of her favorite thrift store mugs.  This is my ticket to the T-day gathering over at Elizabeth's blog .  To join us, all you have to do is have a drink related post (can be any type of drink).   The neighborhood horses have been gathering in our backyard for some reason. Our horse refuses to come up near our house because the lady who owns all these horses gives her much better treats.  They all jump the fences and visit everyone.  The mule in the picture is actually named after me because I named one of cows after the neighbor (he paid me back - lol). I gave them apples when they came on Sunday, and they have come back every day since - lol.  We had a bit of sadness yesterday when another neighb

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo
