Day 30 "A little fun with Zetti and Poe in a bottle"

Hey everyone, well we are getting down to the wire!! Can I have a big Scary Cheer for all the amazing artists that have inspired us during this ghoulishly awesome blog hop!!! I just want to thank all of you for joining in and for your wonderful comments!!
Today I bring you a little bit of craziness. I am in love with Zettiology and of course Collage art. So when I received some most gnarly images from Altered Pages and Smeared Ink I knew I would have to find a way of throwing them all together to create a page in my art journal for today's project. So without further ado here is my fun Zetti art journal page using their awesome collage and digi images.

A Poe in a bottle anyone? LOL
I began with a blank page in my art journal, adding several pieces of torn book pages I  then sprayed the page with several different colors of Dylusions ink.  Next I did a little snipping and pasting of different parts of the collage and digi images to create Poe in a specimen bottle and mad Skelly. Added more paper strips and stamp splashes and a quote from none other than Mr. Poe himself and Wha La!! A lot of strangeness going on here but that is the whole concept of Zetti and with help from some AWESOME images from and I was able to get my Zetti on while having loads of fun.
Well that's all folks I hope you have enjoyed my little piece of strangeness. I have created a list of  some of the supplies I used as well as the collage and digi images. Once again I hope you have had fun along this monthly journey and have been inspired!! Now if you are ready for more eerie goodness click on the next link which will take you to Leslierahye's page!! 
Happy hopping all and from here in the Ozarks
  Supplies from Dylusions Inks Sprays, Gesso, Mat Gel, papers from Graphic 45 Spells, Collage Images  ( Edgar Allen Poe, Gothic Stamp Set, Dem Bones) Images from ( Lisa Lashes)

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.

Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…
