Toxique


Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/09/toxique.html Halloween Etcetera Tag 1

Hello, and welcome! It's time for our latest challenge at The Funkie Junkie Challenge Blog, and this time our hostess is the talented Ginny!  She titles her challenge 'Terrific Tags', and here's what she says:

Add it to a gift, label a homemade tasty treat, or display it with your favorite home decor, tags are not only fun to create they also have a million uses.  For this challenge create a tag that's big or small, mixed media or layered, or added to a project as a fabulous focal point. I can't wait to see your creations!

As always, the winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team. Please see the blog for details.

For Ginny's challenge, I decided to make a piece of Halloween decor.  I chose a  Small Etcetera Tag and adhered Tim Holtz' new Abandoned Paper Stash with Distress Collage Medium Matte. I sanded the edges and blended with Twisted Citron Oxide.

The frame is an Ideaology Baseboard Frame, and I've linked to the new Halloween Layers & Baseboard Frames in the products list below. I mixed Prima Mini Art Stones with collage medium and smeared it randomly on the frame. I painted the frame with Black Soot Distress paint and followed this with another layer of collage medium to seal it. When it was dry to touch, I sprayed with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Spray.

I constructed the backing to the frame from chipboard and covered it with Ideaology Halloween collage paper from last year. To tie it in with the rest of the tag, I colored with Hickory Smoke and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide.

The number plaque is colored with Black Soot paint, Twisted Citron Oxide spray and Smolder Alcohol Pearls. The Hardware Heads also got a dab of Smolder.  Halloween Quote Chips were colored with Twisted Citron crayon. These are last year's chips, but I've linked to the new ones below. The new ones have extra room to attach with brads or those wonderful Hardware Heads and there's lots of new quotes, too.

Inside the frame I colored a Heavystock panel with Hickory Smoke and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide. I colored baubles with Twisted Citron Oxide Spray and Smolder Alcohol Pearls. Skeleton Hand charms from the shop are colored with Picket Fence paint.

The Cauldron die cut is the one I made for this Saturday Showcase where I show a few ideas for using your 3D Crackle Texture Fade. You can find directions on how I made this there. I cut a second cauldron from sanded Metallic kraft stock and blended the edges with Ground Espresso. I adhered the top and sides of the textured cauldron to form a pocket to stick the hands in.  I tucked in some dyed cheesecloth I had on my work top and mixed up a little extra goo and applied it to the Quote Chip, the frame and to the skeleton hands.

Below are some close up photos to show the detail.

Abandoned Storage Box For A Vintage Journey


Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/09/abandoned-storage-box-for-vintage.html Altered Storage Box 1

Welcome! This is actually my second post for today. You can see my shaker Christmas card here. But for now, it's time for a new monthly challenge at A Vintage Journey. This time our hostess is the lovely Julia, who chosen theme is Box It Up! Here's what she says:

This month our theme is boxes! Perhaps you will make a trunk or suitcase, some kind of package to hold a gift, or maybe make a card or journal page showing presents. Just remember to ensure that you create in one of our preferred styles of vintage, shabby, mixed media, art journaling, industrial, timeworn or steampunk.

I actually had numerous ideas for this challenge, but was running out of time to narrow those choices down. This morning, I visited a thrift store that was using this 10 x 7 x 4.5 inch box to hold greeting cards, and it was the perfect size for holding my Tim Holtz stamp sets. I talked them into letting it go.  The original box is pictured below, and you can see it was a work in progress already.

My organizing style is a 'flipper', meaning I like keeping things I use most frequently in upright in files that are open, so I can flip through to easily find what I need. My stamp boxes were getting so stuffed, I couldn't flip through them, and hence, I haven't been doing much stamping.


I removed and sanded the peeling butterfly paper off each of the long sides and sanded the shabby paint on each end. I cracked open my Tim Holtz Abandoned paper stash for the first time and chose a couple of patterns that would work together. Even though I have two of these 8 x8 paper packs, I couldn't use all one paper design due to the box dimensions. As it was, I had to piece the papers together as best as I could on the long sides. I could have chosen a 12 x 12 paper from my stash, but these lovely mixed media sheets were calling to me. Pictured below are the other three sides.

After adhering, then sanding the edges of the paper, I blended the edges with Ground Espresso ink and smeared it randomly with Crackle Texture Paste. When the paste was thoroughly dry, I sanded again.

I used a Tim Holtz Numbered stencil, grit paste and Bone embossing powder to emboss a few numbers on the opposite side. I sealed all the sides with Distress Collage Medium, and when just dry to touch sprayed (long sides) and splattered (short sides) with Distress Oxide spray. Although the yellow turned out as planned, sadly, the splattering on the short ends wasn't the look I was going for. Note to self: when you want a splatter look, do not seal with Collage medium first. 

I kept the embellishments to a minimum and flat on purpose for functionality. I added a few old Remnant Rubs to two of the sides and to the Stencil Chips. I used a mop up scrap to back the chips and added a couple of swipes of Chipped Sapphire paint to the chips themselves. 

Here are some close up photos to show the detail.

Christmas Shaker Card With Tim Holtz Christmas Ribbon Thinlits

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com Christmas Ribbon Shaker Card 1

Hello friends! This is my first of two posts today; you can see my altered storage box here. It won't be long before hurricane Dorian comes knocking on our door, so I wanted to get a card made for this week's challenge, 'Something Clear' at Simon Says Stamp. At first my mind went right to Transparent Texture Paste, but I've really been wanting to try my hand at a shaker card. So here's my first ever shaker card...

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com Christmas Ribbon Shaker Card 2

While they aren't terribly difficult to construct, you do need to have a decently sized aperture. I'm afraid mine might be too small to get the full effect one might get from a larger opening. Oh well.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com Christmas Ribbon Shaker Card 3

 I used several of the papers from Tim Holtz' last year's Christmas paper stash, including the snowflake printed acetate. I die cut Tim's Christmas Ribbon out of white card trimmed to the size I wanted, and stamped and clear embossed three different Mini Swirly Snowflakes. I blended this panel with Tumbled Glass ink and splattered with Picket Fence paint.

I inked the Merry Christmas die cut with Black Soot Distress ink and also clear embossed. After adhering the acetate panel, I adhered the Merry Christmas die cut, inlaying it into the negative space. I assembled my shaker and backed with a red snowflake panel from the paper stash and then again on the words panel. Finally, this was adhered to a white card blank. I decided to add the bow that also is part of the Ribbons die set and cut it out of card I colored with Fired Brick paint, Oxide spray and Black Soot ink.

Here are a few close ups to show the detail. I just may make more shaker cards...they're kind of fun!

Most Delicate Tag Friday and Tutorial for A Vintage Journey

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/2019/08/most-delicate-tag-friday-and-tutorial.html  #timholtz #3Dcrackle #batcrazy #halloween Halloween Tag Tutorial 1

Hello and welcome! It's time for Tag Friday over at A Vintage Journey. This is just a fun feature for the Creative Guides to make a tag using whatever products they wish without any constraints or theme in mind. I hope you will stop over to see all the amazing tags my talented teammates created. But before you head off, I've prepared a simple step by step for you, and following that, some close-up photos to enjoy. 

 Let's get started...

1. Blend Wilted Violet then Aged Mahogany Distress Oxide inks through an old Prima stencil over a black painted wooden tag. While the stencil is still in place spray with Distress Mica Spray. Remove stencil and dry the tag. Sand the edges and apply Hickory Smoke paint to edges.

2. Die cut Ornate Frame from silver Metallic Kraft Stock. Color with Slate alcohol ink, Smolder Alcohol Pearls and a bit of Black Soot paint on edges that will extend beyond the tag.

3. Die cut oval from panel of mixed media paper.  Blend with Weathered Wood, Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord Oxide ink.

4. Emboss oval with Tim Holtz Crackle 3D embossing folder,  colored side facing up, so you are left with a spider web appearance.  Lightly blend the ridges with Black Soot ink. Adhere embossed oval to Ornate Frame and adhere to tag with adhesive foam tape.

5. Die cut bats from Classic Kraft Stock using Bat Crazy Thinlits set. Sand the edges and blend with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. Make eyes with Stickles. Adhere to oval with collage medium.

6. Dye seam binding ribbon with Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves Oxide and stamp with Ledger Script stamps and Dusty Concord and Hickory Smoke Distress Archival inks.

7.  Color a Halloween Word Token with Black Soot paint, allow to dry a minute and wipe off excess. String with Ideaology Jute String and tie with seam binding to tag.

8. Color a bat charm with Smolder Alcohol pearls and Black Soot paint.

9. Blend a Halloween Clippings sticker with Frayed Burlap ink. Adhere to a bat charm and adhere this to tag with collage medium.

And some close-ups...

Found (and Lost) Relative Vintage Card for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Challenge Blog

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com Vintage Mixed Media Card Tim Holtz Sizzix Crochet Burst 3D Impresslits 1

Hello, and welcome! It's time for our newest challenge at The Funkie Junkie Challenge Blog, and this time our hostess is the talented Suzz!  She titles her challenge 'Bits and Bobs', and here's what she says:

"Do you have a pile of leftover scraps from projects previously made or even a half finished project waiting for you to get the time to complete it?   This is the challenge for you!  It is time to pull out those scraps, remnants or half finished projects and pull them together into a fabulous shabby chic or vintage project.  Make sure to mention in your post what part of your project was a scrap or remnant." 

As always, the winner will earn a chance to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. There are also Top 3 Badges for three additional outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team. Please see the blog for details.

Let's get started! Pictured below are a few scraps I salvaged from my bits box and backgrounds file that I thought might work together. In the photo directly below, I've already started to alter the not so perfect background with Forest Moss Distress ink to unify my color scheme. I've put together a little pictorial step by step to show how those little bits got altered. The little piece of Crochet die cut, Ticket Booth ticket and vintage checkbook stub were leftover from previous projects and the burst medallion was an 'oops'; I put the Metallic paper in the Impresslit folder upside down so I was left with a debossed medallion. (But I saved it anyway :):) )

I altered an original Baseboard Frame (I shared a link to the new Halloween Baseboard Frames below, which are similar) following my tutorial. I used Peeled Paint Distress Crayon to highlight the cracks and sprayed with Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Spray. Inside the frame, I've used a Found Relative and followed Stacy's tutorial  to age the photo.  I've used this technique on my witch's cauldron, but I'da never thunk to do it on photos. Stacy, you're a genius--thank you for the inspiration!!! If you have not been to Stacy's blog--Tattered Nest Designs, you will be in for a treat; she can make anything look like it's been discovered in her grandma's attic. While she used Mushroom Alcohol Ink and Smolder Alcohol Pearls to color her witch, I added drips of Slate alcohol ink as well.

I layered over a sanded and inked panel of gold Metallic Kraft Stock and then a sanded panel of old Distress sandable cardstock. I applied a Halloween Remnant Rub to an off cut from another Found Relative.  (I really do save all my bits!) I smeared it with Crazing, dripped with Mushroom and Smolder inks/pearls and brought out the cracks with crayon. The vintage buttons are from my stash, and I tied a bow on one with a short length of thread I had leftover from another project. You never know when you can put these little pieces to use! Save them in a little box, and pull it out when you need a little something.

Here are some close-up photos to show the detail.

The Little Things--Another ATC

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/ Mixed Media ATC with Tim Holtz Stencils, Oxides and Transparent Wings 1

Welcome! I have another little mixed media gem to share with you. I am loving seeing all the ATC's over at Simon Says Stamp's ATC challenge. Have you played along yet? My friend down the street inspired me with her butterfly hatchery. Her monarch eggs she's collected from her milkweed are in the chrysalis stage right now, so it won't be long til they turn into butterflies and she releases them.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/ Mixed Media ATC with Tim Holtz Stencils, Oxides and Transparent Wings 2
 
I smeared Transparent Matte Texture Paste through a Tim Holtz mini stencil (set 25) over kraft card. When it was dry, I wiped over the raised areas with Prima White Gold Metallique Wax. Lastly, I painted the background with Distress Oxide Sprays (Faded Jeans and Cracked Pistachio) with a brush from the bottle.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/ Mixed Media ATC with Tim Holtz Stencils, Oxides and Transparent Wings 3

I layered a Transparent Wings butterfly over one die cut (Mini Detailed Butterfly) from crinoline. A tiny transparent butterfly has some watery Picket Fence paint smeared on the back of his wings, and both are splattered with the paint. You can see just how shimmery that background is juxtaposed with the matte finish of the oxides.

Sara Emily Barker https://sarascloset1.blogspot.com/ Mixed Media ATC with Tim Holtz Stencils, Oxides and Transparent Wings 4

More splattering on the panel before adhering the butterflies and a couple of Clippings stickers. I blended the edges with Ground Espresso ink. Pictured below taken in the natural gloomy light of the afternoon; I rather like it.

I wish there were an extra day in this week, so I could make one more...perhaps I'll squeak one more in before the morning! Hub's night to cook! Hugs and Blessings! Sara Emily

Merry Christmas ATC Pair


Hello and welcome! I have a very short post to share a pair of ATC's I made to play along in Simon Says Stamp Artist Trading Card challenge. These little 2.5 x 3.5 inch cards are a blast to make and a great way to try new or re-visit old techniques and use up some of those leftovers.

I have a pile of backgrounds that I've binned for one reason or another, and this one happened to be a monoprint using Tim Holtz old Poinsettia stencil and Black Soot ink.  (I don't know why it shows as blue in the photos) Not your traditional Christmas color scheme. It was a real disaster, and the only reason I saved it was because there was a decent monoprint on the opposite side.



I colored in the poinsettias and leaves with Distress inks: Candied Apple, Peeled Paint and Forest Moss. I blended the background further with Worn Lipstick and Shabby Shutters and blended Peeled Paint through another Tim Holtz mini stencil from set 32.

I heat embossed the poinsettia centers (Winter Watercolor stamps) the edges, and Merry (Christmas Classic stamps) on a scrap from the original monoprint panel. I thought the centers looked off, so I dropped in Fossilized Amber oxide around the embossing.


To decorate the backs, I blended white card with Candied Apple ink, and placed the Merry Christmas stencil over it. On one card I blended with Peeled Paint ink and the other, I spritzed the stencil with water, let it sit for a minute and blotted with a paper towel to remove some of the color. The edges were blended with  Forest Moss ink. On the reverse side, I just inked the edges with Candy Apple, and I adhered the painted panel to this.


I think it would be fun to make a bunch of Christmas ATC's  and hand them out randomly to store clerks, include one in the envelope with a bill payment, or drop one in the bank drive through during the Christmas season to spread Christmas cheer. What do you think? Thank you for stopping by today! I really appreciate your support! Hugs and Blessings! Sara Emily
