Technique Junkies Vintage Travel Page

Hello Fellow Junkies!

The Crafty Nurse here with a mixed media journal page using some of the new February Technique Junkie Stamps.  I hope you’ve had a chance to check out this fabulous release on the Technique Junkie Design Team page, if not, I encourage you to do so.  Pat is also offering all February Release stamps at 15% off until February 8th.

I began my page with Tim Holtz tissue paper then applied distress paint in Vintage Photo, Broken China, and Walnut Stain.  I then added a watery layer of gesso and wiped that around with a baby wipe.  I then took “Houndstooth Check S665” and stamped over the page in Versamark mark ink.  So that you don’t get hard edges, just curl your stamp and roll instead of stamping the entire thing.  I then added gold perfect pearls for some shimmer.  Over that, I stenciled gold ferro paste over a Tim Holtz’s “traveler” stencil.

The numbers, Paris Tower, and tag are all My Favorite Things dies cut from travel themed paper.  On the tag, I stamped the couple from “Vintage Travel Cases PS012″ in Sepia archival ink and the sentiment in black archival ink.  I like the way the fade off on the bottom.

The suitcases are also from “Vintage Travel Cases PS012.”  I began by stamping different suitcases with a variety of inks.  I stenciled over them with Art Anthology “Cracked” stencil and then layered that with rock candy distress stickles and let them dry.  I then adhered all the elements with matte gel medium and created shading with a Faber Castell Pit pen in brown. To finish I colored up some wooden planes also with the pitt pen  and called it a Technique Junkies Vintage Travel Page.

Well, that’s my page for today, I hope you’ve enjoyed a a little inspiration.  I’ll see you in a couple weeks for more fun with the February release at Technique Junkies.

As always, Happy Inking

Fantasty Art of Nikki BurnettePrize: 5 Images of Winners Choice

For inspiration, I used a the super cool Nikki Burnette image called, “Steampunk Josie”. I distressed a woodgrain paper from Prima’s Cartographer collection and cut out the gears from the same paper pack with a Sizzix die.  I also distressed the edges with Antique Linen distress ink and added Tim Holtz film strip ribbon and metal embellishment gears.  I think she looks sassy alright!Steampunk Josie-wm

March Simon Says Stamp Kit Card 7 & 8

Here are the last two cards from this March kit.  The first uses Operation Write Home’s Weekly Sketch #250.  I added some Bazzill heavy weight vellum and embossed the Hero Arts & Operation Write Home fundraiser stamp with Ranger’s Liquid Platinum embossing powder. The circles & rectangle were cut with My Favorite Things dies.

March Kit Card 7

My second card is an example of covering up a mistake.  I didn’t plan to have a flower at the top left, but I messed up the liquid pearls and tried to remove them but made a royal mess so I had to cover it with the flower.  I stamped the background with the flowers in vanilla Hero Arts Shadow Ink and Fog Simon Says Stamp ink.
