Time for some Julie Nutting love

I was busy this morning making a Julie Nutting doll tag. Can you believe there are 4 different pattern papers on the tag? They all work well together even though the dark blue layer isn’t in the same line.  I added the north star stencil to it with texture paste. when it was dry, I added dots to the centres of some of the stars using liquid pearls. It is very important to wait for your liquid pearls to dry… for some reason, I never have the patience to wait and I always pay the price. I tucked a acetate doily under the layers of the tag and toped it with some wooden leaves and a flower that had been covered in gesso and spritzed with Lindy’s stamp gang sprays in tibetan poppy teal and tiffany’s blue.  as soon as I sprayed them, I dabbed them with a cloth.  This made for a subtle effect on top of the gesso. Decorative glitter brads were added to the crochet flowers.  I added some flower trim to the bottom that had been dyed to match the tag with some faded jeans distress ink and a little water.  The doll was stamped and her dress and head band was paper pieced. She is coloured with Copics and her hair is water coloured with gathered twigs distress ink .  I used this water brush and it makes the finest of painting easy.

I love making these tags.  I hope you find some time to try one of the Julie Nutting doll stamps and create your very own tag.

Happy Life…


Hi again!  Last summer most all of our kids managed to make it out to the cottage at the lake during the same sequence of days and it was wonderful!  My photographer daughter wanted to do a styled photo shoot with the married-for-one-year couple and the cottage of our kind and generous neighbors, who let us stay in their place while we worked on our own, was full of the greatest props for just such a shoot!

So these are some of the photos that came from that!  You can check out the Bespoke Photography shoot here and also here.

I tried that thing again, where I modified the background paper a little, by stamping that lovely floral stamp in behind the floral die cut.  And about those die cuts though!  They are Kaisercraft’s Oh So Lovely line and Lori has them and the papers from that line in the store!  Oh my goodness, I haven’t seen anything so pretty in a very long time!!  So then to try and unify the look on the page of the stamp and the die cut, I used a Sharpie liner to outline some of the die cut image.  Kinda loving that a whole lot!!
Can’t remember where I got that badge from; it’s been sitting on my desk asking to be used for a while.  The tag is another Forever 21 clothing tag and those Robin’s Nest Dewdrops are so yummy right?  I got them from Lori.  I don’t see them in the store but they might just not be listed on line, so call her if you need some.  She can fix you up!
The happy die cut is cut from wood paper, and the wood grain chipboard letters are October Afternoon.
Thanks for coming by today!
