Feeling Rusty by Kerry Engel This page looks like it should weigh about 3 pounds. But it doesn’t. Those gears – they are totally fake. What would take nature about 5 years to accomplish I created in roughly 20 minutes, with a little help from Pentart Rust Effects distributed by Bo Bunny The gears were cut using a Tim Holtz die cut from Sizzix. I covered them in Ranger black gesso and pressed the Rust Effect powder distributed by Bo Bunny into the wet gesso. Then I added the Rust Effect Reagent from Pentart distributed by Bo Bunny on top and brushed it around with an old paintbrush.  Once dry I covered in the Pentart Varnish. I thought that would seal in the rust shavings. The gears remain pliable and very light weight. They look very realistic and give my page some lovely texture.  I think I’ll do this on…

Bo Bunny: Kiss the Cook Collection and Kerry Engel The Kiss the cook collection from Bo Bunny was perfect for a family perogy-making day we had last summer. I created my title on my cutting system and filled the letters with the Kiss the Cook paper collection. I combined my handmade title with letters from the collection to create my own original title grouping. I like using the small paper pads because I like layering different papers underneath my feature photo.  The smaller pads give me access to all the papers in the collection. The large chipboard elements in the collection add yummy layers and textures. To create my background I scraped Ranger gesso onto the kraft colored cardstock with an old hotel room key. I created some  green/grey shading on the Ranger gesso with a Tombow Dual brush marker. I drew around my photos and elements with a marker…

Birthday Fishes Card by Kerry Engel A colleague at work was having a special birthday so I decided to make an extra large card that would accommodate numerous greeting from staff (it measured 6×12). I’ve been using my Ranger distress inks to make watercolor backgrounds for my hand lettering and thought it would make a great background for the fish stamps from Heartfelt Creations. I got a bit carried away making fish one Saturday night but it resulted in a very impressive shoal. According to Wikipedia “any group of fish that stay together for social reasons are shoaling and if the group is swimming in the same direction in a coordinated manner, they are schooling”. My fish were swimming in every direction and they looked really social so I’m going with shoal. When I was done I asked my husband, “now what do I do? How am I going to…

Hello everyone – Kerry Engel here – I’m late to the Tim Holtz Crazy Bird game. Now I’m slightly addicted. I created a flock of birds and then used them on a variety of project. It’s handy to have a pile of them ready and waiting to add to your projects. Tack one on a card or create a wall hanging like I did. I even have three adhered to a lamp in my studio. How to make a flock: 1. Stamp the birds on Creative Scrapbooker Superstock (or a very sturdy cardstock) with a permanent waterproof black ink. 2. Spread Top Boss Clear Embossing Fluid over the image by pressing the ink pad over the image. Covering your image with Top Boss makes the colored ink blend more smoothly. 3. Apply ink from ColorBox Blends and ColorBox ink. Blend with the Smooch tip. Leave white space to create highlight.…

Today on our blog, Kerry Engel is sharing some beautiful watercolour effects on her scrapbook page using Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I love making my own embellishments. This layout began with a doodled flower that I created last summer. I actually have a stash of Tombow flowers just waiting for a story that needs telling (and embellishing). It’s so easy to make your own embellishments with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. In this layout I used the Tombows to create the following accents: 1. Journaling strips 2. Watercoloured flowers 3. Hand lettered title. Make your own customized journaling strips 1. Layer different colors of Tombow ink on watercolour or mixed media paper. 2. Wash with water to create an ombre, watercolour effect. 3. Let it dry then run it through a printer. The first time round I cut the paper into thin journaling strips. I thought my hand lettering was too…

Today on our blog, Kerry Engel is sharing some wonderful projects and techniques using Magenta Nuance Powders. I’m one of those lettering people. Always playing with pens, practicing my down strokes, experimenting with different mediums. I’ve been playing with Nuance Powders since Christy Riopel introduced me to them at the Canadian Scrapbook Carnival in Edmonton last September. It’s a little embarrassing how happy the Nuance Powders make me. There are many ways to use the Nuance powders. Lately, I’m enjoying the unpredictable magic of tapping them onto pre-watered areas. It reminds me of the invisible messages we used to create with lemon juice when I was a kid. I’m using watercolour paper by Canson, cut to 4×6 size, Nuance ink and water. That’s it! 1. Choose a harmonious color family of ink. I used three colors. Poke a hole in the lids of your powders so that you can…
