Halloween Mixed Media – Monster Mash!

July 20, 2022

Hi everyone, I wanted to get a jump start on my Halloween/Fall projects so I made this super fun but messy Monster Mixed Media Planner Pages. So Lets get started.

Step 1: You will need Tim Holtz Distress Sprays, I used Black Soot, Straw and Carved Pumpkin, but any combination will do. You will also need Rangers Heavy Watercolor Paper, Moon Mask, Planner Essentials 2, Water Spritzy Bottle and Heating tool.

Step 2: Cut your two planner pages using Planner Essentials 2 from the Ranger Heavy Watercolor Cardstock. next place you Lrg Moon Mask on the top part of your left hand page.

Step 3: Spray your Straw, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot as per the picture above, once you have finished. Carefully lift your moon mask.

Step 4: Once you moon mask has been lifted, heat set with your heating tool.

Step 5: Once your page is dry I lightly spritzed the center of my moon so the distress spray activates. I then spritzed the side spray on my mixed media mat and dabbed the center of my moon. For my right hand side page I spritzed with the straw, Carved Pumpkin and Black Soot and dried it with my heating tool. (As per picture above)

Step 6: I cut out my Halloween Monsters from coordinating cardstock and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink or your choice of ink colors.

Step 7: Out of Planner Essentials Halloween Set 2, cut out your Haunted House, word and Number 31 from your choice of cardstock.

Step 8: Out of Planner Essentials 3 and heavy Black Card Stock cut out your Spider Web Frame and attach to your right hand side planner page.

Step 9: Once your Monsters are assembled, I attached my Haunted House down first, then my Monster Witch and Blue Pirate Monster the Cooking Pot was pop dotted on top of both monsters and the bat is attached with a small pop-dot to the top of the moon. (As per picture above)

Step 10: I matted the Halloween word onto Black and Lime Green Cardstock and attached to the top of my page. Next I attached my Monster Spider to the Web. I did not glue down the web as it leaves room to slide in a photo in the background.

Step 11: Add your reinforcement rings to both pages,

Step 12: And the best part is saved for last, I speckled both pages using a fan brush and heavy mixed media white paint.

I hope todays blog post brought you some inspiration and a little bit of Halloween Fun!

Thank you and Happy Crafting >Katie<

Joset Designs Soft Finish Cardstock

Squirrel box

February 23, 2022

Hi everyone! I’m back with a new creation. This time I created a fun 3D box with squirrels. In the Netherlands we call this a “kijkdoos” and I believe in English it’s called a diorama if i’m correct. It’s something I use to make in school all the time and brings back so many fun memories. For this diorama I used the Squirrel and Daffodils dies from Joset’s latest release as well as some other dies from are from a previous release. Let me show you how I created this diorama!

First let’s create our box. I worked with centimeters, so keep this in mind if you’re used to inches.

Cut these pieces from strong paper:

  • 12,4 cm height x 25,8 cm wide (backside and frontside) 2 times
  • 13,4 cm height x 13,4 cm wide (tray)
  • 14,7 cm height x 14,7 cm wide (lid)

Take the ‘backside’ piece and make a crease in the papier at 1 cm and 13,4 cm.

Do this again with the piece for the frontside. Cut a piece of 10 cm x 10 cm out of both squares. So now you have a piece with two solid squares and a piece with 2 open squares. Behind the open squares I adhered some transparant sheet.

Now we need the piece of 13,4 cm x 13,4 cm to make a tray. Crease the paper from each side at 0,5 cm, and make a small tray.

At two sides on the outside you put some double sided adhesive and adhere the solid squares to it. Decorate these squares with some decorative paper on the inside. I used paper from the Reminiscence Book 2.

Now the best part, decorate the box. I started with the Folded Mushroom, so the box is a bit filled. I used Soft Finish Cardstock and Distress Ink for colouring. As you can see, I made a crease at the bottum.

The whole mushroom was a little bit to high and now I have a strip where I can add some double sided adhesive to adhere this at the box. I also made the cute Squirrel who looks behind his door.

Before I adhere the mushroom I made a chest with some nuts. The squirrel is sitting behind this chest to watch over his nuts.

At the left side there are some bushes, and who is in there with his tail?

When the mushroom is in his place, you get this view. Another squirrel came to sit down and eat his nut.

In front of the mushroom I made a path with stones. These stones are from the sea dies.

When the inside is done, you can adhere the frontside with the windows. Before I adhere the frontside I made a fence and some clouds on the inside. And then it was time to adhere the frontside to the box.

Now we can make the lid. I used a piece of papier 14,7 cm x 14,7 cm and created a crease at 1 cm from each side.

Adhere some decorative paper on top and the backside and the box is almost ready.

The last thing I did was making some daffodils and adhered these at the left en right side of the box.The photo above is made with the lid at the box. The pictures below is made without the lid so there is more light.

Hopefully you liked this post and got inspired. If you make this box, I would love to see your creation in the Elizabeth Craft Design family group.

Thank you for reading and see you soon!

Greetings Lisanne

Joset Designs Soft Finish Cardstock Summer Journal Special Traveler's Notebook

Splish Splash

June 23, 2021

Hii all! It’s Lisanne here. It is time for a new blogpost from me. So the weather here in the Netherlands getting better and better. The Under the Sea Collection is perfect to use at this time of the year. I really like this Collection in combination with the square TN.

For this pages I used the Poloroid page and the beautiful Rainbow of Happiness paper. I used the paper with the blues and green colours. So let’s start with the Octopus page, doesn’t he look cute?

The Puzzle Page is a dies set with a lot of dies. I used the biggest frame and the splash. I used a thin denim sheet, that looks perfect with the Rainbow of Happiness paper. I used the frame without the splash with the Octopus.

The octopus is coloured with Distress Ink, some high lights with the a gell pen and glossy accents at his eyes. The eyes look rounder. But be carefully with these accents, they have to dry a little time.

I adhere some coral from the Summer Journal Kit in different colours to the page. Love all these colour explosion. The little fish at the right is also from the Summer Journal kit. At least I make a life buoy, which is a dies from the Whale, and stamped the text Splish Splash.

The second page is with the sea Turtle. He is so adorable. I told you that I made a splash from a denim sheet. The part who felt out is glued at the Turtle page. But only half of the splash, the other half is at the back. I also glued some waves from the Summer Journal kit at this page. I didn’t know if you see this that good, but for now it looks good haha.

I build up the Sea Turtle with ofcourse Distress Ink. Only the Turtle wasn’t enough for me. So at this page I made coral to but now with different colours. In combination with the other page, it looks beautiful!

I also made some accessories from the diving accessories. But I think they are laying a very long time at the bottom of the sea. They turning a little bit green haha.

I think I’ve told you everything about these two TN pages. I’ve had a lot of fun making these pages with all these beautiful colours.

Thankyou so much for reading! And hopefully I see you soon!

Kind regards Lisanne Geerdink
