Mr. Duck torn paper art.

This was inspired by my nephew TEDDY… He used to carry a stuffed Mr. Duck every where he went.. Hard to believe , He is all grown up now……  I am enjoying tearing papers and fitting them like puzzle pieces. its a slow long process . The best part of this is if you don’t like something you can always glue an other piece over the one you didn’t like…. added some mulberry paper to fluff him up some…..OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA



Dalmatian puppy …Torn paper by Rose Guerin….. loved doing this guy such fun …took forever but I finally finished him… If you look close the words are all information about Dalmatians I thought it would be a kick to print it out and then tear the papers to fit.. Its like doing puzzles once you get the hang of it, pieces seem to just fit into place. ok now gotta go pick up all the torn pieces of paper that flew around ………



making new postcards look older


making a new postcard look old


cut the white off or leave it on for centering pleasing the eye. added some gold ink around edging ……..


Clear embossing ink is a lot cheaper then versa mark and works the same………..


But  I really love this TSUKINEKO GOLD  embossing POWDER


gives it that old fashion look….

you could distress it  on the edges, little cuts, bends, and tears..


paper embroidery feather

Using heavy water color paper. draw your feather of glue a photo of feather to paper to follow your color patterns. I use an Aul, to pre poke the holes make sure you have plenty of space between holes so you don’t tear new holes or over side an hole. its pretty easy you can do backstitching works good or reusing a stiched hole already in place.  then added beads and pretty. also made a green book mark. working on more of these everyone seems to want these…

my green feather book mark  . I love the colors light and dark greens, and crystal glass beads in the center. beads are all  Glass seed Beads…………….


Flip Envelope Journal


4 or more envelopes

attach your envelopes  spray stamp or paint.


flip envelope book you can make into a SCRAP BOOK or a JOURNAL.

I used this beautiful paper from Recollections signature paper pad collection…. then used some decorative tape on the edges. and added paper snaps and string to open and close it.


stamped the env and added papers

I add some paper for either photos or journaling.. I plan on adding photo card and placing it in the envelope with the bike photo.flips open left to right.


Memories has an envelope slot to add more fun items………

Also added papers to the inside of env…..  LOVE THE LIVE SIMPLY… statement


more pockets ….

I have a thing about feathers , its a sign of angels watching over us. so I added a plastic window with Feathers made of paper in it…. I still have so much more art work and things to do.. but thought Id share this now…


flip side

another Hand made book and decorated paper clip.

13770238_10206823221523542_4585084214742047381_nThis cover was done with a lot of different napkins , It’s a NAPKIN DECOUPAGE COLLAGE  book cover plus I used some water colors to blend it all in to give it a more orange color to match the matt board covers.

save those Clementines creates?…

OKAY so cool to turn into caddys .  used homemade glue.. {look in search my blog} and glue paper towels to create helps keep it sturdy and helps cover up the staples they use. do as many layers as you like. painted mine black to go with the napkin collage design . make sure you peel the 2 layers of paper off the napkins first.


pencil , pen, paint brush holder… in the tube glued to the frame wood piece.

peeled the layer of napkins and glued with my glue mix to paper towel…. pretty napkin design….  This holder is made for holding all my book sewing things. painted sides black


Glued napkins to sides  and then painted the sides black..


a better view…
