Sorry about being MIA for awhile. First, I wanted to say...Thank you for each and every comment left on my blog for my take of Tim's Tattered Floral Challenge! I'm so thankful for your kindness to stop and leave a comment! Y'all Rock!
Once again, on March 23rd, I will post the winner of the Tattered Florals Die and The Steampunked Floral Box. Thank You for playing along!
OK...next, Thank You all for coming by to my Ustream Show on Tuesday! To me, there is no better way to slow down the pace of life than playing with Dylusions Inks, Stencils and Stamps...I had so much fun laughing with y'all as I played in my Dylusions Art Journal. .I never took pictures of the final Easter page and thought I would share those with you now....Remember the gate? Well, I hated it and came up with a new version...Here she goes....
Thanks Again and Have An Awesome Day!
The Gentleman Crafter
Hey your post popped up while I was on Blogger! Oh Jim I love the new version of the gate. The colors on this page are fun and fantastic! The color palette even got a comment from my dh during your show. He said that I should use those colors-hmmm, I think he was encouraging me to buy some Dylusions . . . Gotta love him! Have a great day. Hugs.ReplyDelete
LOVE it!!!! The colors are fabulous!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Love the gates Jim, the "lil" envelopes are really the topper.ReplyDelete
BTW, I pin these (I gave you your own board!) but the pin link on the page brings up a blank photo so I don't use it. No idea what the tech issue might be but thought you might want to know.
What a stunning piece this is.The new gates are fab. and I love the little envelopes popping out. I must get some of those inks to play with.ReplyDelete
I am not a "painter", but do love ink. The little paint daubers are great too. I like the idea of using metal and paining it.Have you tried alcohol inks?I have some, but don't use them.I'll have to look up some tutorials.
Thanks for all you share on your blog.
Hey Jim, This is great! So vibrant and spring like. I am wating for my new sprat to ship. Lucky me, I signed up yesterday to take classes with Dyan in April. I just love everything you do.ReplyDelete
Just finished watching Tuesday recording, love the new gates, how funky is this page. Awesome as always Jim. xReplyDelete
I watched the recording of the Easter page late yesterday and have to say...I LOVE THE NEW GATE! I love everything about it...the little envies, the decorative "holes", the colors, the "hardware", the doodling,and the little ball toppers...so much more YOU than the original. Thanks for sharing the updated version!!!ReplyDelete
Wow, so much to look at - the gates are terrific, love the mail poking out and fabulous colours!ReplyDelete
Wow...that's all I can say! I think you have a fairy tale living in your conscience :)ReplyDelete
I just love all of the colors in this project...It was fun finally meeting you theReplyDelete
other night, Jim.
What talent you have...WOW
Love the little mail alot with the Easter cards in it!!!! Too cute!ReplyDelete
Oops that was supposed to be mail SLOT!!! The page turned out awesome!ReplyDelete
Jim, your journal page turned out FABULOSO!!! I love all the little details, the mail hanging out of those beautiful gates, the house #. WOW! I love it, great job my friend.ReplyDelete
Absolutely love this. You just keep delighting me with your creations. Just FYI, if I use the pinterest installed pin tool, the pin came through just fine. It is the pin button on the bottom of your blog that comes up blank, not the first time I have run into the problem on your and other blogs. You have your own board on my pinterest page too thanks as always for sharing.ReplyDelete
What a magic piece. Love the vibrant colours and the mail hanging out the gate. Such a cute idea and a really awesome creation. ox MargReplyDelete
The colors are stunning here!!! Your ah-Maz-Ing!!! I love this project, so cool and so many great details.ReplyDelete
Now this looks good! The colors the other night just weren't jiving. Maybe the ustream, maybe because you changed the gate, but either way it is awesome! Thanks for putting up with us. ;)ReplyDelete
Absolutely Awesome! I love this gate much better! I love watching your Ustream video's to see that you also have a few struggles... I don't know about anyone else; but that sure makes me feel better!!! I also would like to give a shout out to Cesar... Your knitting is way cool! Love to see all of you awesome creations! Okay, back to you Jim... I wanted to take a moment to let you know that you have really inspired me to step outside my comfort zone and work with chipboard! It really helps me to have a project to work on and know that it CAN be done... not just something that I dreamed up in my head! Now for Dylusions... Love them... I just got the new colors and I don't think I will ever get my fingers back to there regular color! I am stained for life! Have a fabulous day!!!ReplyDelete
Jim, Fabulous. like the new gate and thanks for being such an enabler-going out tomorrow to get me some dylusion sprays, stamps and stencils.....ReplyDelete
Jim, this new gate, in your words, 'ROCKS'. I notice lot's of other touches along the bottom too. I'm sill trying to cut out an egg - how tall is your egg anyway? The finished page is delightful. I hope we can have a Dylusions night on aregular basis. Grief, I just finally found my Dyan stamp plate. Thanks for the pics.ReplyDelete
I got to watch most of your ustream from Tuesday last night... I just love your video's thank you so much for sharing with all of us in Blogland!ReplyDelete
Hope you'll do journal pages again....it was so fun to watch!ReplyDelete
I love your new gate much more!!!!! I enjoyed your journal and I can't wait to see you do more in it.ReplyDelete

thanks for all your creativity..
Well, that was something special! An Easter egg surprice! Love it!ReplyDelete
Wow Jim! Just incredible! Made my gloomy snowy morning a lot brighter!ReplyDelete
Jim, as I was unable to stay and watch the entire ustream with you last Tuesday, I had no idea where you were going with this project. But, gotta tell you I love the end result. Awesome!!!! I haven't gotten into Dylusions yet, but it is relaxing just watching you play. I love that the projects are always fun, vibrant, and no rhyme or reason to them, just doing and trying. Didn't see the original gates, but these are fabulous. Jim, there are a couple of things that I can always count on you for: fabulous creativity, fun, and lot's of laughs. Thanks for being you, it is always a pleasure to be in your company.ReplyDelete
I must confess that I didn't like the gates on Ustream broadcast either. ;-) I knew you'd find something to add. Boy howdy, did you! It's going on and stepping it up a notch or two that always delights me about your work. Nice recovery! I love that a regular guy can make such beautiful things, inspiring this regular girl to maybe give some of it a try. Kudos to Cesar and his knitting, too. I may have to get out my knitting needles and try something beyond a scarf....ReplyDelete
My screen would go black at the most inconvenient times and became a total black out at the end so I was not able to watch the finished product on your UStream last Tuesday - especially the gates, which by the way turned out just fabulous! I really enjoyed watching you work and the inspiration is awesome. Hope to watch more in the future :-)ReplyDelete
Wow! I am really sorry I missed it! I hope the vid is posted so I can watch it soon!ReplyDelete
COOL! Did you use the WeRMemory Keepers envelope tool to make the envelopes? Does it even make them that small? I am still waiting to find that tool. Hobby Lobby has the Dylusional inks but no stamps. My favorite is the flowers and the pink. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
As usual we all had a wonderful time. I made a page for my journal too! Didn't realize how much I'd missed that free flow of creativeness. I'm going to have to life that wonderful door and mail slot for a mini one of these days. So cute. Thanks again for the inspiration and FUN and smiles and laughter.....ReplyDelete
Tis brilliant!!! Love the gate, the giant egg, and the mail slot with letters sticking out is FABULOUS!!! LOVE this!!!ReplyDelete
I love it!!The colors are so vibrant and cheerful !! Had a great time the other night on Ustream!! I am so glad your doing the shows you are so talented! I enjoy every minute of it! Thanks for the creativity and joy that you bring!!!ReplyDelete
