Club scrap September team challenge- watercolors

Hi all, welcome to the club scrap team challenge blog hop! If you are hopping along with us then you are here from  Josette's Blog. If you get lost along the way or want to start from the beginning go to karens club scrap post .  This months team challenge is all about watercolors inspired by the beautiful watercolor art on the club scrap orchard papers. So i broke out my tray of gelatos, orchard stencil and some inks and got to it. I used some white yupo paper from the paradise kit to use as my 12 x12 base. Then with inspiration of the pic of my son i used two brown gelatos and water-brush to dab on the stencil to make a tree trunk. Then i used green to make a tree canopy and some grass at the bottom. I then thought it needed more detail so i went back over the tree trunk with the stencil and brown distress ink once it was dry. For more detail on the tree i used a leaf stamp from the color me happy kit with green ink . Lastly to complete my scene i decided the watercolor grass was too much so i tore a piece of the bright green paper from the kit and added it to the bottom overtop it. Did bright blue ink splats to match my ds shirt as well as blue heart stickers and embellishment . Then i got layering and fussy cutting happy to add around and under the picture. Lastly i added some letters and stickers from my stash to finish it.  Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!  Jen t:)

Some pics of my process
Yes i know in the first pic the tree looked like a palm tree but i think the leaf stamp helped..lol!
I was going for a whimsical look

i dressed up our door for halloween;) with goodies from oriental trading

Hi all, today i am stopping by to share how i dressed up our doorway with quick and simple projects and decorations with goodies i got from oriental trading . Below is the box of goodies i got a couple weeks ago to create with:

Quick review of my ot goodies

metal pumpkin yard stake- super cute and glittery as well as sturdy-I love that it can be staked into the ground or hung on a door or gate wuth the hook on the back
Foil leaf garland- perfect length for around my doorway -great color- leaves are a lil on the small side but i made them work:)
Halloween choir rug-  nice and thick - great quality! 
Wooden pumpkin shapes- i love that it came with a bunch to use for future projects-paint went on smoothly as well 
Fall  cardstock-  nice , thick and sturdy - great value! 
Fiskars paper trimmer - love it! Cuts great! 
Small plastic treat buckets - so cute! Sturdy lil buckets
Black glitter tulle - soooo glittery!! Some glitter does come off when manipulated but expected with anything glitter
Disclosure- Oriental trading  has sent me products to review, but all opinions are my own


I first painted the wooden pumpkin with bright orange acrylic paint i had from a past project then after the orange dries i then painted the face with black paint 

For the body of the wreath i started by scoring 6 12x12 pieces of cardstock (in pics dark brown) i then changed my mind to use the orange instead) scoring at about every inch to fan fold each piece

see pics below of more of my process

Then glue pieces together and form it to a circle addind a large circle of another piece of cardstock to hold its shape 



cut approx. 6 inch strips of tulle and glue and layer

I used stickles from a past project to glitter up the pumpkin face
lastly I glued the wooden pumpkin face onto the accordion wreath

for the garland- easy peesy! I just cut strips of tulle  and tied the lil plastic pumpkins to the leaf garland

doorway all done:)

thanks for stopping by and happy creating!!

Club scrap lagoon blog hop

Hi all, welcome to the Lagoon blog hop! If you are hopping along then you are here from Hetty's blog. If you get lost along the way or want to start at the beginning head to Karen's post on the club scrap blog. For this months hop i am sharing with you a faux canvas i made using the lagoon kit. 

I say faux because it looks like a wrapped canvas when it's hanging.!it is a great way to upcycle too! So save those sturdy box/gift box lids to try your hand at making one.
Now because my box lid was already a beautiful glossy white similar the the paper i used I didn't have to paint the edges but for a box lid that has a color you don't want to see just paint it with acrylic paint.
I trimmed traced and trimmed the seahorse patterned paper to the size of the lid and used a liquid glue to adhere it to ensure it stays on well. I then stamped the saying onto the tan cardstock  and matted it on darkgreen cardstock then the burlap paper. Lastly, i added lots of shimmer onto the seahorses/ mermaid tail  and burlap with distressed & regular stickles- see closeup pics 

To get your hands on this kit and all things club scrap go here

 Finished  8 x 10 faux canvas
( click on image to see whole pic) 

Close-up  of the tail- i fussy-cut the mermaid cutapart then used the dazzlers from the kit to layer on the tail to look like scales

A couple before pics---

Ipad box lid as my faux canvas 

I am lovin that lil detail bottle with the cs binding glue in it to get in those lil spots!

Using every bit of those gorgeous teal dazzler stickers  using a mini punch i punched seashells from the edge of the sticker

Closeup - oh and don't forget you can alter embellishments to match using a alcohol marker like i did for the starfish above

Baby wipe technique 

Spray inks on wipe


I sprayed a blue and green 

Then i took my bubble stamp and stamped it into the wipe( tip - make sure you have something protecting  your surface underneath. I  was using an old cutting mat) 

I stamped the bubble stamp on the wipe a few times then onto the paper going vertical  then added stamped mermaids along the edges

Club scrap lagoon page i entered in the creative scrappers sketchchallenge

Hi all, today i am stopping by to share a scrapbook page i made using the club scrap august lagoon kit and the creative scrappers sketch. I had sooo much fun adding details to this page. The beautiful grey rosette was a rak my crafty friend donna gave me and then i added a dazzle to the middle and tied the lil bottle that i added sequins into to the button . The circle shark fin on the top right is in the adventure aquarium symbol that i punched out of the brochure and added a enamel circle on it( my faux flair) . Then i pulled the negative sticker from the dazzlers and cut it up to add to my layers. The silver scales under shark and on the sides of my photo is ribbon from the kit. It is beautifully iridescent too. I tucked in another faux flair with the seahorse  and to add depth to my sparkle stickers from my stash i put them on white paper then cut them out so that they are not flat on the page . Here's some pics below. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting! Oh make sure you stop back tomm for the club scrap team challenge bloghop.
