I love Texana Designs Stamps .....

Hi!! I am Karen and I am a Texana Designs Addict.  I have been on the Design Team for almost 2 years and I don't plan on going anywhere anytime soon.  I am so honored to get to create with these awesome rubber stamps.  I have loved making cards with the stamps, but recently decided I can make use of them for my scrapbook pages.

I am a scrapbooker at heart.  My husband and I travel around Texas taking pictures just for fun.  I am thrilled to have Texana Designs Stamps to use to make unique and different embellishments for my scrapbook pages.
Here are some of my layouts.  Watch my blog for future posts with tutorials on how I created some of my embellishments.

Creative Chemistry 102 - Faux Patina with Alcohol Inks

Faux Patina
Here's another sample of Day 4 - Alcohol Inks and altering metal.  I took a silver leaf and distressed it just the way Tim instructed.  This one did actually turn our okay, but it was my second piece.  The feather just reminded me so much of the Jam'n bird stamps from Texana Designs that I had to stamp a little bird on there.

I pulled one of my practice tags from Creative Chemistry 101 Spritz and Flick technique and paper pieced the bird.  Finishing touch was adding some stickles and the white of the eye.  I like the background much better now that it has something cute on it!

Thanks for looking.

Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 3 - Brayered Stains

Brayered Stains
Here is a completed tag from Day 3 using the brayered stains technique for the background.

I used Texana Designs Stamps and embossed with Antiquities Enamalware embossing powder for the coffee pot.  I love how it turned out!!!

Remember you can get your Texana Design stamps at the Etsy Store

Creative Chemistry 102 - Day 5 Metal Leafing

Oh yes... this is much better!
The picture says it all!

Here's a sample of the metal leafing with sticky embossing powder.  I used the Jam'n Barbed Wire Christmas Tree.  I think the background colors need to be darker to show off the gold leafing, but I do like it.  Will probably like it more when I've completed the tag!

Creative Chemistry - the bluebonnet way

Day 3 of Creative Chemistry 102 showed a technique called smudge stamping.  It is created using second generation stamping so I got two-for-one.  -Janet

Have a fangtastic day!

In preparation for T!m Holtz Creative Chemistry 102, I have been brushing up on techniques taught last year in Creative Chemistry 101.  This is a tag colored with water brush and distress reinkers.  I used the Cact-O-Lantern, Bat - solid and Have a fangtastic day! stamps.  I inked the edge of the tag with a blending brush and distress ink.  Images are stamped in Archival ink.  And stickles adds a bit of sparkle.
