It's Heating Up at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge Blog

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/07/its-heating-up-at-funkie-junkie.html Masculine Mixed Media Card  1

Welcome friends! It' s time for a new challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog and our lovely and talented hostess, Suzz has chosen the theme 'It's Heating Up'. Here's what Suzz says about this challenge:

July is when the weather here in the Midwest really starts to turn warm and muggy. This is the inspiration for our challenge to interpret the heat with using one or more of the following colors: Yellow, Red or Orange. Your challenge is to create a vintage or shabby chic project where the main color is yellow, orange or red. I can't wait to see how you turn up the heat in your art!

As always, the Design Team will choose their top four picks, and the winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. The next three will receive Top 3 badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

While I do use yellow, orange and red quite frequently in my projects, it's not often the main color, so this indeed was a challenge for me.

My background is a panel of Classic Kraft Stock embossed with Tim Holtz Foundry 3-D Texture Fade. I sanded it and added color with Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink and Ground Espresso ink. I layered it on two old Tim Holtz papers and finally to a kraft card blank.

I stamped The Professor by Tim Holtz with Ground Espresso and Faded Jeans  Distress Archival inks on a card scrap, fussy cut and colored his frames with Spiced Marmalade marker.

 I stamped the dial from the same set on Distress Heavystock with Rusty Hinge and Ground Espresso inks and a bit of Cracked Pistachio oxide ink. Using my stamp platform allows me to use multiple colors to create depth and interest.

I fussy cut the dial and colored it with Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge oxides. I gave the dial a coat of Distress Crazing and after drying, smudged with Distress crayon-Chipped Sapphire. Both stamped pieces were edged with Ground Espresso ink. With foam adhesive, both pieces were layered over some scraps I had on my worktop.

I finished my card with a Rusty Bottle Cap, Idea-Ology Metal Ruler Measurements (one of the many prizes I won in a challenge on Tim Holtz Addicts Facebook page), Mirrored and Adornments Stars and an Occasions Small Talk sticker. I patted the ruler with Chipped Sapphire Distress paint. Linda sells the bottle caps in the shop already rusted, and I just dabbed it with Chipped Sapphire paint to give contrast to the Mirrored Star. I colored the star with Splendor Alcohol Pearls (front) and Chipped Sapphire paint (back). The copper painted Adornment Star was already painted, leftover from a previous project, and I colored the other two with Chipped Sapphire paint and Carved Pumpkin oxide. Everything was adhered with Distress Collage Medium Matte.

As a final touch, I splashed the card with diluted Faded Jeans oxide.

The Loveliest Things


Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/ Sea Life Mixed Media Tag 1

Hello and welcome! Simon Says Stamp's current challenge is Life On The Ocean Waves, and I couldn't help but play along. The Elegant 3D Texture Fade just screams ocean waves to me, so I used it to embosse an oxide background. 

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/ Sea Life Mixed Media Tag  2

After inking, embossing and inking again, I swiped the raised portions of the swirls randomly and heat embossed with Seth Apter's White Cloud Baked Velvet. I splashed with watery Faded Jeans oxide. Can you spot the fish tail? I stamped the fish from Tim Holtz Sealife on Plain Collage Paper using a light touch of Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint Distress Archival inks, and colored on the opposite side with Celestial Alcohol Pearls. I tore the edges of the image and adhered it to the background with collage medium. I also did the fish head on the opposite side, but I made a real mess out of it. It's covered with 'kelp' (cheesecloth dyed with Peeled Paint spray oxide and Walnut Stain oxide).

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/ Sea Life Mixed Media Tag  3

I love this propeller from the Steampunk Parts Bigz die. I gave it an old crusty tarnished and worn brass look with a variety of products. Look out Mr. Seahorse; you might be cruising for a flat top!

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/ Sea Life Mixed Media Tag  4

The seahorse is from the Sealife stamp set, too, inked with Ground Espresso archival and clear embossed over an old failed alcohol ink lift technique panel (before the miraculous Alcohol Lift ink).

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/ Sea Life Mixed Media Tag  5

And there's the Seashells Bigz die cut given a crusty look with a variety of products. You can see a tutorial I did with tips on making seashells HERE. Grit paste, art stones and Seth Apter's Deep Sand Baked Texture, a brass starfish from my stash, a Clippings Sticker and some Funky Floral die cuts finish it off.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/ Sea Life Mixed Media Tag 6

I hope you're finding time to create among these busy summer days. I find my crafting time is rare, but this came together in no time. Thank you for stopping by! Hugs and Blessings! Sara Emily

'Sea' the World Etcetera Tag

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/07/sea-world-etcetera-tag.html 'Sea' the World' Mixed Media Etcetera Tag 1

Hello friends! Today marks the start of a new challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog, formerly Frilly and Funkie. The name and blog design has changed but the bi-weekly challenges continue as usual.  Starting with the current theme, both the Frilly and the Funkie sides of the Design Team are joining forces to present one post for the challenge titled Water, Water, Everywhere. This theme was chosen by the talented Cec, and here is what she says:

Often when people go on vacation there is water involved – fishing, cruising, checking out the aquarium, enjoying water sports or playing in the sand at the beach. For this challenge I want you to create a vintage or shabby chic project that reminds you of one or more of these past times.

As always, the Design Team will choose their top four picks, and the winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog. The next three will receive Top 3 badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/07/sea-world-etcetera-tag.html 'Sea' the World' Mixed Media Etcetera  2

The inspiration for my panel came from these three seafaring ladies that were on top of the deck of Tim Holtz Found Relatives pack that was still sitting out on my desk. (Nancy, Betty and Barbara, all BFF's since high school.) "Use me!", they cried out in unison. I colored them with Distress Crayons and layered over Classic and Metallic Kraft Stock panels. I added a tiny price 'sticker' from Tim's Keepsakes Ephemera pack, distressed and inked with Ground Espresso.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/07/sea-world-etcetera-tag.html 'Sea' the World' Mixed Media Etcetera  3

Backing the photo is a Destination Thinlit die cut heat embossed with Fractured Ice embossing powder over brown Distress ink. This translucent powder does amazing things over colored inks and makes it so easy to add depth and dimension. I adhered the die cut over an oxide mop up panel from my stash and fussy cut around the edges.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/07/sea-world-etcetera-tag.html 'Sea' the World' Mixed Media Etcetera 4

I had another inky panel in my stash that worked perfectly as the background. It was a mop up from a combination of  (I believe) Pumice Stone, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Sprays on Bristol board . I adhered the panel to a Mini Etcetera Tag with Distress Collage Medium Matte, trimmed and sanded the edges. I blended with Evergreen Bough Distress ink and added Metallic crayon randomly to the edges. 

I just picked up a couple of vintage checkbooks at a really inexpensive estate sale this past weekend (these were free), and on flipping through the stubs, I came across this one that worked perfectly with my theme. This check was for $65 and it was for "Trip-Cost/Laundry". I used one of the  Ticket Booth Framelits to cut the rough edge where I tore it from the checkbook and aged it a bit more with Distress inks.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/07/sea-world-etcetera-tag.html 'Sea' the World' Mixed Media Etcetera  5

I embossed a strip of Classic Kraft Stock with Foundry 3D Texture Fade, sanded and inked with Rusty Hinge oxide and Ground Espresso ink.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/07/sea-world-etcetera-tag.html 'Sea' the World' Mixed Media Etcetera  6

I originally had plans to use my new to me Tim Holtz Sea Life  stamp set as the focus of my project, but Nancy, Barbara and Betty were calling to me. Yet I couldn't resist adding this sweet seahorse and seaweed from the set. I can just imagine looking out the port hole in your cruise cabin and seeing this bit of sea life. I used Classic and Metallic Kraft Stock and Steampunk Parts die to make the aged brass porthole.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/07/sea-world-etcetera-tag.html 'Sea' the World' Mixed Media Etcetera  7

Another piece of Keepsakes ephemera and a stamped and torn ticket back the Quote Chip. I used Tim Holtz Ticket Booth stamps and Framelits to make the ticket, which is colored with oxides and stamped with a combination of Distress Archival inks ( Faded Jeans and Ground Espresso) which adds depth and age. Using my Stamp Platform makes easy work of stamping using more than one color.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/07/sea-world-etcetera-tag.html 'Sea' the World' Mixed Media Etcetera  8

An Ideaology Swivel Clasp holds an altered Typed Token . I used a seahorse charm from my stash, but Linda sells a beautiful seahorse charm in the shop as well as a seaside charm set that comes with the sweetest  detailed seahorse along with 8 other antiqued bronze nautical charms. (They're on sale for just $3.59 for the set!)  I tied off my tag with a couple pieces of that gorgeous ribbon Linda ties up her thank you packages with along with Ideaology Jute String colored with Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide spray.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/07/sea-world-etcetera-tag.html 'Sea' the World' Mixed Media Etcetera  9

That's all for me today, but there's plenty more wonderful watery inspiration over on the blog, where my Frilly and Funkie teammates will wow you with their creativity. Then it's over to you! I can't wait to see what you will make! Hugs and Blessings! Sara Emily

Celebrate Freedom

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/celebrate-freedom.html Celebrate Freedom Mixed Media Panel 1

Hello and welcome! It's almost Fourth of July, so I'm sharing a mixed media panel today featuring lots of Tim Holtz products that work so effortlessly together. 

I was really in the mood for some grunge, and I started with a corrugated cardboard packaging panel. I removed strips of the paper and laid down a zillion different products including Distress Opaque Crackle Paste and Grit Paste, colored with Distress Sprays which looked horrible. I also added texture paste and textured it with a texture tool, hoping to get some stripes for my background.  I ended up painting it with Chipped Sapphire Distress Paint and splattering with gesso and tried my best to hide it with the collage. I adhered this to white card and then to old sanded Distress Kraft Core.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/celebrate-freedom.html Celebrate Freedom Mixed Media Panel 2

These women from the newest Found Relatives pack seem to be in a celebratory mood, proudly displaying Old Glory. I gave them some color with Distress Crayons- Chipped Sapphire and Festive Berries. I layered them with  a couple of Pocket Cards. I added Correspondence Design Tape to one of the cards and grunged up the cards with Distress ink.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/celebrate-freedom.html Celebrate Freedom Mixed Media Panel 3

I've always thought this Wildflower from the Wildflower Stems #2 set looks like fireworks. What's 4th of July without some fireworks?  Two were cut from white card and the third from Metallic Kraft Stock colored with Smolder Alcohol Pearls, and I added Stickles to the buds.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/celebrate-freedom.html Celebrate Freedom Mixed Media Panel 4

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/celebrate-freedom.html Celebrate Freedom Mixed Media Panel 6

 Faded Jeans Stickles needed some more zing, so I added Celestial Alcohol Pearls over top. Mercury Glass has enough sparkle on it's own.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/celebrate-freedom.html Celebrate Freedom Mixed Media Panel 7

I cut a Rosette from old Tim Holtz Christmas paper stash, and at the center is a Fluted Star colored with Smolder and Celestial Alcohol Pearls and Chipped Sapphire crayon. The lace is one of the Crochet Thinlits.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/celebrate-freedom.html Celebrate Freedom Mixed Media Panel 9

A couple of Small Talk Occasions stickers and Alphanumeric Label letters make a patriotic statement. I cut 'July' from Metallic Kraft Stock sanded and colored with Smolder Alcohol Pearls. I  adhered it with Distress Collage Medium Matte onto a scrap of card I decorated with stars using a Mini Stencil (set 38) and Chipped Sapphire Oxide ink. A Hardware Head tops a Number Token colored with alcohol ink and backed with white card.

Memories of Home for Frilly and Funkie

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses 1

Hello friends! Today the Funkie side of the Frilly and Funkie design team will inspire you with their projects for the current challenge, Home, Sweet Home. I am hosting this challenge and here's the scoop:

Whether your house is grand or modest, neat or messy, there's no place like home. Houses get bought and sold, but home stays with you forever. For this challenge, I would like to see how you interpret what home means to you on your vintage or shabby chic project.

As always, the Design Team will choose their top four picks, and the winner will be invited to join us in a Guest DT spot at Frilly and Funkie. The next three will receive Top 3 badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Home for me, means quite a few things, but at the base of it all, is family. These are the people I can feel totally comfortable with, and know will love me no matte what. I've lived in quite a few houses in my lifetime--13 houses and apartments in 3 states to be exact. Only a handful of them actually felt like home, so I decided to make a Tim Holtz Tiny House for each of the 4 that outline the stages of my 'home life'.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  2

The first abode depicts the farmhouse I grew up in with my 5 brothers and sisters. While I made  farmhouse siding and a rusted tin roof for this first Tiny House, I really don't remember much about the outside of our house. It's our family inside that matters, and back before cable TV, cell phones and laptops, we spent our time playing and working along side each other day in and day out.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  3

I used an Ideaology Snippets Ephemera 7 cent stamp, because it says US 7. That's what we were: 6 kids and a Dad. I couldn't find an appropriate Paper Doll to represent my Dad (and I don't have a single picture of him) so our dog, Sparky, who was my Dad's sidekick, is standing in for him. Each of the Paper Doll kids was colored with Distress crayons.



 The shiplap siding is watercolor paper embossed with Lumber 3D Texture Fade, smeared with Wendy Vecchi's crackle paste and cut into strips. I highlighted the edges and cracks with Walnut Stain and Hickory Smoke Distress Crayons and glued the strips over a base I cut from an old Tim Holtz Paper Stash cover.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  4

The 'tin roof' is made with layers of Black Soot Distress Paint, heat embossing with Seth Apter's Eclipse Baked Velvet and Chunky Rust, followed by Weathered Wood paint.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  5

'Family' and 'Home' are Big Talk stickers also embossed with the Lumber folder and treated the same as the siding. The Ideaology Milk Cap had Crazing applied to it and smeared with crayon.

'Collector of memories' is a Remnant Rub, and the leaves represent one of my favorite memories of home...the entire family raking big piles of leaves from the three sugar maples out front and then us kids spending the day jumping in them. At the end of the day, my Dad  made them into one huge bonfire. The leaves are Skeleton Leaves Thinlits and the older Fall Foliage Thinlits cut from various colored scraps from my scrap bin.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  8

There were times in my life that my family was geographically far from me, so this next house depicts me living the single life. This is when home meant a place of comfort and safety and a place for me to learn to grow as an individual.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  9

 My second home I bought when I was single  had wood siding, so I constructed this one from Distress Woodgrain Cardstock. I colored this with Antique Linen paint, Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass Distress stain and Walnut Stain crayon. The roof is cut from a fiber paper from my stash, inked with more Walnut Stain and patted with Weathered Wood paint.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  11

It's at this stage in my life that I fell in love with gardening, so I tucked some Ideaology Botanical Layers behind my Paper Doll. I also tucked in a ticket from the Keepsakes Ephemera Pack and Adorned Thinlits die cuts heat embossed with White Cloud Baked Velvet.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses 12

 My third house depicts a time when I met my future husband, married and started our life together in our first combined home. I cut this house from Worn Wallpaper,  because I remember there was lot's of old wall paper that needed to be removed from our fixer upper. My husband and I worked as a team and made that house our home, working nights and weekends on remodeling it. Home meant love and partnership (and a lot of work!).

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  14

 I sanded the Worn Wallpaper and added back some color with Distress Oxide Spray and blended with Distress ink. The roof is cut from corrugated card from my stash and scribbled with Distress crayon.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  15

The Baseboard Doll couple couldn't be more perfect!  I colored the couple with Distress crayons. The hearts are actually parts of a flower from the Funky Floral #2 Thinlits. I added color with Wendy Vecchi Blendable ink--Poppy and heat embossed with clear powder. The clock is from the Keepsakes pack and the Remnant Rub #2 is on a Snippet. 'You and me' is a Clippings Sticker.


Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  16

I finalize my journey at the home we currently live in. It's far from perfect, and I've never really fallen in love with it. This house requires constant repairs, being older. Our home is special though, because it's where my husband and I raised our kids, and it's in a wonderful neighborhood that we feel so at home in. Home is, once again, where my family is.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  17

This Tiny House is  inspired by Anna Karin's beautiful Tiny House and is cut from another old Tim Holtz Paper Stash cover. I used a stone die cut from the Mixed Media #4 Thinlits set and loosely followed Anna Karin's tutorial, substituting Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Spray for her paint. Although my crackle did not turn out at all like I would have pictured, I'm pleased with the stone work nevertheless.  It's the perfect setting for the Paper Doll family from the Christmas pack. Another couple of ephemera from the Keepsakes pack, Funky Floral #3 die cut greenery and a Clippings sticker tell the story.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  19

I left the back unadorned, because I am loving how the stones look here.  I used crackle paste through a Tim Holtz mini stencil from set #28.  I colored with Distress Oxide Sprays. crayons and sealed with Crazing. I highlighted the cracks by smearing with crayon.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/06/memories-of-home-for-frilly-and-funkie.html Memories of Home Tim Holtz Tiny Houses  20

I used one of Tim Holtz Fragments stamps and Hickory Smoke Archival ink and text from the Dapper stamp set with Black Soot Archival. I stamped the phrase on a scrap of plain collage paper before sticking down with Collage Medium Matte.

That's all for me! I hope you will visit the Frilly and Funkie challenge blog to see the amazing projects my talented Frilly and Funkie teammates have created. And then, it's over to you! We would love to see what you will create for this challenge! Hugs and blessings!
