Funky Big Talk Canvas for Creative Embellishments


I'm feeling funky today and had a need to break out of my norm so here we are with a wildly colorful canvas that I did for Creative Embellishments.

 The bright background was created on an art canvas by misting with water and then adding sprinkles of Ken Oliver Color Burst Powder.  I love how the powders pop and spread creating such unique patterns.


This is a Creative Embellishments Star Frame.  The frame is heat embossed.  I used Color Burst Powders on mixed media paper and framed that to make the stars stand out.


This is a Creative Embellishments Grunge Corner, also heat embossed.  I thought it made a cool platform for my funky girl to stand on!  You can also see in this photo the stamping I did with CE's Distress Circle Stamp and paint.




Dyan Reaveley has so many funky and fun stamp sets and the image here is from the Crown of Roses set.  I stamped the image on mixed media paper, colored it with markers and then fussy cut it.




AND, because I sometimes feel so snarky, I had to use a couple of quotes from Tim Holtz's Big Talk stickers.  I think it all works so well together!



Thanks for stopping by today, be sure and check out all the great chipboard, stamps, stencils and flair at the Creative Embellishments store/

Layout for Creative Embellishments

My parents in their younger years scrapped with Creative Embellishments chipboard and Graphic 45's new Elegance paper collection.




 I used a Creative Embellishments frame finished with Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel to draw attention to the photo.




Creative Embellishments has so many great words and word sets.  I heat embossed the frame and love word with Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel.



I almost always put flowers on my layouts and I really love to put chipboard leaves and flourishes underneath them.  I've used chipboard leaves along with the leaves that are on the flowers for these floral clusters.  The chipboard is colored with Lindy's mists.

Folio Notebook from Eileen Hull and Graphic 45's Elegance

Hello friends, I've had a chance to work with Eileen Hull's Folio dies again and I am loving them!!  I made the folio with pockets on both sides and a signature in the center.  The right pocket holds a little mini.



Facebook Live!

I will be doing a Facebook Live tutorial on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at 4 PM EST to show you how to make the flowers using Eileen Hull's  Folio Page, Pocket & Flowers thinlit dies.  I'll also give you a flip through of this folio along with some helpful hints on folio assembly.  If you missed the Facebook Live, here's a link to the replay,  You will probably need to join the Eileen Hull Fan Club to view but that's easy!  Be sure to answer the questions when you ask to join.


Pocket on the left and right with a signature in the center.









The spine on this folio is about 2 1/2".  On the left side you can see the mandala die which is so gorgeous!!

It's March, New Challenge at Creative Embellishments

Time for a new challenge at Creative Embellishments and we've got a great sketch for you this month for inspiration!  The twist is to use stitching on your project.





I used the sketch as a take off point for my layout, changing it as needed to work with my photos.




There are lots of words in the Creative Embellishments store that work well for titles.  The Vacation piece I used comes in a set of two, large and small vacation word.  To meet the twist, I used the Zigzag Stitch Border and the Cross Stitch Border chipboard pieces.  I used Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Enamel on  all these pieces for color.





  The Palm Cluster Set  and the Palm Leaves 3 set work great under my flowers and add to the Florida look  of this layout. The leaves are colored with Lindy's mists.
