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…

Hello, Connie Nichol here with some cards I created with Impression Obsession stamps and dies, Chameleon Pens and Core’dinations cardstock.  I only meant to make one card, but I was having so much fun stamping and colouring that I ended up with a few slightly different versions.  My philosophy is that while you’ve got all the supplies scattered about, keep creating!!  It’s an awesome feeling to have a bunch of cards prepared and ready to go when you need them.  But now I can’t decide which one I like best….  they are all sort of similar but different. When I started creating these, I stamped the Mixed Flower stamp from Impression Obsession three times on white cardstock with Ranger Adirondack black dye ink and coloured them with Chameleon pens.  These markers are very unique – they are alcohol based markers that allow you to get a variety of colour tones with…

Hi Connie Nichol here today with a couple of snowy projects that are being featured over on the Quietfire Design blog.  I started with some of the papers from Simple Stories Snow Patrol line and just kept creating from there.  Here’s a simple 8.5 x 11 scrapbook layout to feature a photo I snapped with my phone in the Rocky Mountains last fall. Snowflakes seemed like the perfect embellishment, so I used my Sizzix Eclips 2 to cut a bunch of large snowflakes using the Berry Leaf digital cutting file from Quietfire Design and layered them under the photo to form a snowy background.   I love this cutting file because it includes the solid background layers you can use to add dimension and interest.  Even though I used only a monochromatic white, there are so many possibilities for layering different colours and types of paper to get different…

Check it out, Nicole Wright  here with a promise of spring for Tuesday with the Team!  I wanted to create a lot of texture so why not stamp on canvas.  I created this 5×5 card using a few of my favorite Sizzix dies including the Birch Thinlit die. I used various Sizzix dies to create the foliage including Tattered Pinecone, Layered Leaf and Tattered Leaves. I love inking up these filigree metal leaf charms from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies.  Ranger’s Peeled Paint Distress Paint is perfect for distressing these metal charms. I created my own leaves with watercolor paper and an assortment of Ranger Distress Spray Stains peeled paint, lucky clover and twisted citron. I inked the leaves  with Ranger Distress Inks peeled paint, lucky clover and twisted citron right onto the canvas. The Birch die is cut onto watercolour paper where I inked and blotted with Ranger Distress Inks…

Connie Nichol and I were really excited about our first morning at CHA, which started early with a breakfast and demo for the media in the Ranger booth. We spent 20 minutes with each of 4 designers….and the first one was Tim Holtz! At the demo tables, we learned all about the new releases for each designer’s line. Tim Holtz has a number of exciting new products. Everyone is excited about the Distress Crayons! Distress Crayons are formulated to achieve vibrant coloring effects on porous surfaces for mixed-media. The smooth water-reactive pigments are ideal for creating brilliant backgrounds, watercoloring, smudge effects and more. Colour directly onto your surface and blend with water then layer with Distress Inks or Stains for more creative possibilities. The crayons are available in 3 sets that coordinate with the Distress Palette. There are 3 new mediums that look amazing, and Tim demonstrated how to use each…
