Devine Tilda CAS

Hi there.
I have a quick CAS Magnolia card to share with you.  This is Devine Tilda from the waiting for Christmas Collection.  She is one of my favorite stamps because you can use her for any occasion.

I colored this image using Copic Sketch markers and tried to to a "no lines" technique.  It's been a while since I tried to do this technique.   I used Antique Linen Distress Ink pad to stamp the image. The DI is very light so bleeding or smudging isn't really my concern here.  I have seen Alice Wertz use Antique Linen on her images so I thought I'd give it a try.
Since DI's are not oil based, there are safe for Copic nibs.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

March Review and Flip Thru Video

 Hello Friends.

Today, I am sharing with you how my Filofax pages for the month of March looked like. I will also have a flip thru video of the first 3 months of the year in my Filofax.   As I find it hard for me to do a weekly Filofax post (although I really want to do it... but life gets in the way all the time...) I will do a monthly review and flip thru every 3 months.

 March 1-7

 March 8-14

March 15-21

 March 22-28

March 29 - April 4

And this is my flip thru video of my completed pages: January to March 2015.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

Art Journal: Magnolia Window

Hi  Friends!

I have an Art Journal Page I'd like to share with you.  I used the DooHickey Club Kit Le Jardin dies (Vol.#4) for this art journal.  There is a video on how I made this below.
I hope you like it!

(OK, so the lighting in the video changes very ofter. I filmed this video close to the window to have natural lighting.  Unfortunately, the weather here in Chicago changes every 5 minutes....from sunny to gloomy and sunny again... so you can see the difference in the video.  But I still do hope that you like it.)

You can watch the video below or you can watch it on YouTube HERE!

Thanks for stopping by and watching the video! I hope to see you again soon!

Sizzix Butterfly

Hi Friends,

I've been playing with some Tim Holtz dies lately and this is what I came up with. I love the new Butterfly Duo with Texture Fades. If you are wondering what those tiny wings are in the center,'s one of the butterflies from the set. I messed up...(actually tore the wing apart) and I had to cover it up. So I decided to add a center "winglet" to do the job.

For the background, I used one of the Mixed Media Thinlits.  I distressed the edges of the background panel and stained it with Walnut Stain and a blending tool.

I also used some of Tim Holtz older stamps to give a grundgy look to the card.

Some Ideaology Wordbands and Pen Nibs for the embellishments and a piece of jute,  seam binding and twine to finish the card.

I hope you have a wonderful week and I hope to see you again soon!
