Hidden Paper Clips – Wild Animals

paper clips

Yes, these cute images are hidden paper clips. I belong to a paper clip group on Facebook where we are challenged with a theme each month. For December the theme is wild animals. I thought the penguin was so cute I had to use it, and my daughter loves panda bears so that was chosen also. By the way, she loves the clip and will use it as a bookmark.

If you are interested the penguin image comes from Vecteezy.

Ultra Mini Ribbon Tag – Tag it Tuesday

mini tag finished

This cute little tag was made with a tag from the Dollar Tree and Gwen Studios Ribbons. After finishing it, I think it might be a nice altered paperclip so I will probably share that tutorial in the future. But back to this week’s tag.

Gold Foil Tag – Tag it Tuesday

gold foil tag

Today I am sharing a Gold Foil technique for Tag it Tuesday. I like the rustic application of the gold foil that coordinates with the pattern on the small envelope. Inside the envelope is a small card that has a sentiment and a butterfly sticker.

Ribbon Ornament or Decor

with Gwen Studios

final ornament

Gwen Studio’s ribbons make for such a colorful ornament. While this is my version, there are a lot of options you can choose when making your ribbon ornament. Consider a limited color palette, different lengths of ribbons, and different thicknesses of ribbons.

Not only does this make an ornament, but you can use it all year round as a home decor piece. I think it would look nice hanging in a doorway or as a part of a larger shelf or table display.

If you are interested in a different version, here is another ornament I made for an ornament swap using materials from Dollar Tree. [tutorial]

This shows the variety of using different lengths of ribbons as well as different kinds of ribbons. It is interesting to see the visual differences when making a few different design decisions.

Tag it Tuesday – Mica Powder

mica tags

It is so fun to stamp with mica powders, especially interference colors. The colors show best on dark surfaces, and you don’t know what you will get until you apply it.

If you would like to make your own DIY resist spray that I used to seal the tags, here is the tutorial: [spray]

Reverse Embossing – Tag it Tuesday

tag

This tye-dye look is achieved with a technique called reverse embossing. It uses the “wrong” side of the embossed card stock. After ink blending into the negative spaces, black ink is applied to the raised surfaces to create the look. I added a sticker sentiment and a few gems to finish the tag off.

If you are interested in the word sticker set, it is available in the store at the following link: [Art Words]

In this close-up image, you can see the addition of the gemstones better. I think they add to the final overall look.

Ephemera Paperclips

paper clips

I think I am addicted to making ephemera paper clips. It is so much fun using up scraps and pieces and combining them into a pleasant image. They are miniature works of art.

materials

There are no rules to making ephemera paper clips and if you do a Google search you will find a variety of examples. The only things you must use are a paper clip and some kind of adhesive. After that, you can collect whatever is around you. I tend to collect pieces that relate to each other by color.

Video Tutorial:

The first two I made were based on a journal I made in a past tutorial. I used leftover pieces of painted paper that were used for the cover of the book and coordinated additional pieces.

As I said, these were so fun to make. It has inspired me to do a series of miniature art pieces.

Tag it Tuesday – Faux Watercolor

tag image

This week for Tag it Tuesday we are exploring a faux watercolor technique. If you don’t know how to watercolor or don’t feel confident in your ability, this technique will provide the look of a painted image.

materials

Stamping your image and then using a water brush to move the ink around simulates the look of a watercolored image. I find this technique playful and relaxing without the stress of painting from scratch.

Video Tutorial:
