The Paper Mixing Bowl Reveal--Australia

Hello is the February reveal for The Paper Mixing Bowl . This was a great recipe and sketch to follow. Come on over and play along with us.
Here is the recipe and sketch
And here is my take on it. I absolutely LOVED my trip to Australia last year where I met up with a friend Faye and I had a trip of a life time!!! She is one of the most kindest people I have ever met and I am lucky to have her and her family in my life!!!
Here is a close up. I just got a new, well new to me sewing machine so I am giving it a go. I always have loved how the sewing looks on layouts and cards. It is harder than it look to keep things in line!!!
Thank you so much for stopping by!! I appreciate it. SO come on over and have a play with this awesome recipe and sketch!!

A Simple Tutorial-- Resist Technique--PaperHaus Magazine DT

Hello!!! Hope you all have a good crafty week. This is a tutorial for my DT at PaperHaus Magazine . There is so much inspiration at PaperHaus Magazine!!!
I am here to share with you a simple tutorial that you can get so many results with. This is my version on a resist technique.
Here are the supplies you will need:
Inks of you choice.
Stamp of choice
Embossing ink, clear or white
Heat gun,
Blending tool and of coarse a tag.
 First use the embossing ink pad on your stamp.
 Then stamp on your tag where you prefer. I always try and get 2 sides of the tag stamped. One using a good portion of the stamp and the next one maybe use half or a quarter of the stamp.
 Then cover stamped area with the embossing powder, shake excess off.
 Then Using the heat tool set the powder. It should look like this when you are done.
 Then decide which colors of ink you would like to use and use your blending tool. The neat thing about this is you can customize your colors to match your project also. Use the tag for a layer or use this technique to create your own layers. The possibilities!!!! Here is what I came up with.
 Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have enjoyed this!!! Have a wonderful weekend!!!
