Brushlettering – Happy Halloween

Since my regular video schedule is Tuesday and Thursday, I decided to make today my official “Halloween post.”

This time, I didn’t sketch it out with a pencil first.  I just crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.  I was really happy with how this came out!

Cardmaking – Hope Your Day Is Awesome

That metallic acrylic paint is awesome.  By loosening it up with a little bit of water, I painted on a thin, even coat of the metallic paint onto the watercolor paper.

The results are magical!

I really wish I could tell you where that paint is from.  I hope I can find something comparable when I finally run out of it.

If you have any suggestions for a good metallic acrylic paint set, leave them in the comments below!

Brushlettering – Hello, Pumpkin Spice

My husband and I were cleaning out our garage one weekend and I went to dig into one of my outdoor craft supply boxes.  I had several paints that had been stashed away for future use and this metallic paint set was one of them.

It’s a metallic acrylic paint set.  I don’t even know what brand it is, or where it was purchased.  I believe it was donated to me when my Church’s craft ministry was doing their own destashing.

I was so glad to see that the paints were still in good condition.  I had to start playing with it immediately!

I hope you enjoy this video.  Please let me know if this is something you’d like to see more of!

Scrapbooking – Yummy

I’ve been wanting to do scrapbook process videos for a long time and I’m finally doing it!  This is my first scrapbooking process video.  In the past, I had released a few talk-through videos where I had a completed layout and I simply talked through my process.  This time, you get to see me do a small layout, start to finish.

I’ve been really inspired by Amy Tangerine and her love of documenting memories in her Traveler’s Notebook inserts.  That’s pretty much what I’ve done here.  My insert is from Michaels.  It’s their Recollections brand insert.

I use scraps from Michaels and a sheet of Simple Stories paper Tape, also purchased at Michaels.

I want this video to show that layouts don’t have to be complicated or over embellished.  Documenting memories can be done in any form or fashion.

Please like and subscribe to my channel and I hope to get more scrapbooking/memory keeping videos up soon!

Playing with masking fluid

This video is a bit different from the videos I have been uploading.

First off, there is no voiceover.  I actually talk through this video.  My oldest was at school and my youngest was napping.  It was the perfect time to record a video without having any distracting noises.

Second, I’m playing with a ‘new to me’ product, masking fluid.  I have seen many other Youtube channels use masking fluid along with their watercoloring and I just had to try it.  Before filming this video, I played around with it for a bit so I wasn’t fumbling with the masking fluid too much before recording.

I hope you enjoy this type of video.  Please give me a thumbs up if you’d like to see more of these kinds of videos.  Also, leave me a comment with some suggestions of some products you’d like to see me try!

Cardmaking – Celebrate

I love the look of the “ink smooshing” technique.  I love the texture it gives the card and the colors I used are always one of my favorite combinations.

For this card, I kept the sentiment mainly on the top part of the card.  I wanted to feature the look of the ‘ink smooshing.’

At first, I thought the card looked a bit ‘top heavy.’  I’m used to having the sentiment or the focal point towards the bottom of the card.  But it’s good to get out of your comfort zone. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Materials used:

  • Ranger Distressed Inks
  • Dr. PH Martin’s Hydrus Liquid Watercolor in Carbon Black
  • Tim Holtz waterbrush
  • Canson Watercolor paper
  • Tombow Fudenosuke Calligraphy Pen
