Lost Coast Stamps & Altered Pages Mash Up

Hi There! 

For the month of July we are incorporating Lost Coast Stamps into our projects here at Altered Pages  and today I thought I would do a little something different.  I am showcasing the same stamp set in two seperate projects.  One is a somewhat of a quickie tag with lots of layers.  
The other a bit more involved still using the same stamp set.  
And, the stamp set can be found here...More Bugz.  

My first project, a gift bag with an extra pocket for a gift card, started with this cute little Diy French Fry box kit.  There are three each of two designs in each kit along with embellishments.  I did not use the enclosed embellishments, but instead opted for pretty paper flowers from this adorable argyle ocean floral pack. 


   

   
So, stamping, adding pops of color with aqua acrylic paint, adhereing my flowers and gift card pocket and then the coordinating tissue and this project is done! 

Now, on to the second project. 
This was done using a large tag made of MDF that I had in my stash.  Alteredpages.com has lots of great tags to choose from here.
For this piece, first I covered the entire surface in vintage text page.  Next, I fingerpainted fuscia and turquoise acrylic paint all along the edges.  Then, I stamped a few bee images, again using the More Bugz stamp set. 
Next, I added a DIY flower that I created using some great paper scraps, more fuscia and turquoise paint and a little sea shell bead.  
I love the quality and variety of the papers found here.  For this flower I used one of a kind handmade papers which you can find here.

I hope you enjoyed my two projects...one stamp set! 
Make sure to check back all month long to see what fun we have using Lost Coast Stamp Designs. 

Thanks for stopping by!

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
