It's another Sunday.....

Hey Everyone....hard to believe this weekend is almost over isn't it!!!!!  WOWzers.....I did get to play some more today and had alot of fun!!!!!!  I also made a trip to Michaels and got in on some of their Acrylic stamps 40% off!!!  I also had a 50% off coupon of one item so I decided on a Brad Maker.......ALSO.....I scored on a Craft carosel that was normally $49.00  I was planning to use my 50% coupon on that but when I went to the register it rung up at $19.00....CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!!!!  I was SO excited...and now my tools are in one container on my ART desk....LOVE it!!!!

So, anyway....sorry to get off track...LOL....I just wanted to share my creation with you.....I was working on another swap for my ARTHaven Creations & Friendships group......this is for a Hangie Danglie Valentine Swap.......I wanted to play with my grunge paper some so I decided to jump in and give it a whirl........Here's what I came up with........(HEADS UP......EILEEN.....if you want to be surprised...don't go any further!!!!)

 
 
 
I used SEVERAL techniques on this.......First I want to start off by sharing with you the top 2 layers of the heart...the scroll and the smooth shaped heart....was a BEAUTIFUL cut file designed and created by Yolanda at http://justyolie.blogspot.com/ isn't it cute....If you would like to have that you may go to her blog......She's been creating for just a short time and is already a VERY talented ARTist!!!!  I designed and created the back scalloped layer myself......I cut the shapes out with regular white cardstock and then traced them onto my grunge paper....just didn't feel like cutting the grunge paper with the cricut......so after I traced the patterns onto grunge paper I cut out....YEP it took a bit of time but so worth it.......I then decided I wanted to use some decorative papers on the scroll layer and the smooth heart layer so I picked some of my K&C paper....LOVE IT.........

I coated the grunge paper scroll piece with Peeled Paint dauber....hit the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inkpad Walnut Stain....then glued the decorative papers to the two layers then ran through my cuttlebug and it did a wonderful job!!!!  Hit the high spots with my Tim Holtz Distress Inkpad in Walnut Stain....(surprise surprise huh....).....I attached the "friends for a lifetime" brad on with my Crop-A-Dile.........and then rubber stamped and embossed a butterfly onto grunge paper and cut out...colored with markers and then ran a wire through the body and attached to the heart.....

I used foam dots to raise each layer up off the next layer to give it a bit of depth....I used some beaded fringe on the bottom of the heart.....which gives me the "danglie" part of the creation......The bottom layer of the heart...the scallop layer......is also grunge paper....I coated with my Peeled Paint Dauber and then coated with Tim Holtz Fired Brick crackle paint front and back....when dried I then ran through my cuttlebug and then hit the high spots with my Tim Holtz Distress Inkpak in Walnut Stain.....I attached large brads with my Crop-A-Dial and then used some wire and beads as the "Hangie" part of the piece.....once I wired and beaded I still wanted some ribbon on the handle so I threaded some sheer brown ribbon and some fiber and wrapped around the "hangie"...........

Ok....that does it for this creation!!! I hope you like it...and I hope Eileen enjoys it when she receives it...She's a VERY talented ARTist herself..........I as always...want to THANK YOU for coming by to visit with me.......I hope you enjoy your visit and I do hope you will come by again!!!!!  I pray you all have a very blessed week!!! Until next time......

Belated Merry Christmas

I hope everyone was blessed with a Wonderful Christmas Celebration full of love and wonderful memories with family and friends!!!!!  I've missed posting for a while.......Life tends to take over doesn't it!!!  I'm enjoying  a weekend of being able to work on some things I would like to complete......just thought I would share a few of the items I've created so far.....

This first creation is a Money Card for my niece....should have completed this before Christmas...however I did not.......She lives in MN so I need to get it in the mail......I designed and created the cut file in Inkscape and cut in SCAL2 with my Cricut......I really like the way the file turned out and I created an envelope to fit the card....I also used one of my flowers I've designed and created and shared in the past..........I'm sharing another link to the flower below if anyone is interested in it......

The papers I used are from K&C Company....Aren't they GORGEOUS!!!  I also used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad in the Walnut stain to "age" the edges...as well as rubberstamped the border on the front flap and embossed.....I'm really tickled with the way this turned out and think Cassie will enjoy it.....Well, let's be honest....she'll be more interested of what's inside rather than the card itself....but I can hope can't it!!! ;)

As always, if you are interested in the cut files I've designed and created you may click the images of the files below and they will take you to the page on my website where you may download them.....and again the SVG files are free........they are also available in other formats.....










The next creation is for a swap in my ARTHaven Creations & Friendships group.....the theme was ATC Snow....I wanted to do something out of the norm.......so I decided to take a piece of cardstock...colored with some of my Versamagic Dew Drops Chalk Ink in GD58 Hint of Pesto color.....whipped the entire cardstock then took a wet whip and smeared it all over to coat the cardstock well and pull off any access....I then dried it with my heat gun........after that I rubberstamped in Stazon Brown ink some snowflakes and then stamped one large snowflake with my Versamark pad and covered with a copper colored embossing powder and heat embossed....then I ran through my Cuttlebug using one of my Snowflake embossing sleeves.......I then took my Tim Holtz Sanding block and hit the high spots to remove the color and then touched with some Walnut Stain Tim Holtz Distress ink.......

I then took a some ribbon and attached.....a metal snowflake I coated with versamark ink then coated with some Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Powder in Old Paper and embossed.....then hit with some Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Ink pad........added with some Gorilla Glue some brown dots....just wanted to make sure they stuck well and a glass dot in the center...attached it with a brad.........added some dots on the opposing corners and some metal corner pieces........There you have it......I like the warmth of the ATC even though it's not your "normal" look for a Snowflake item........




This next item is a swap for my ARTHaven Creations & Friendships group too.....The theme for this swap is TAG - Snowman........Well I had created a snowman cut file a couple weeks ago to use in making some Christmas tags so I decided to use it again......just put it togeter a bit different this time.......I'm sharing the image of the cut file below so if you would like to have this file just click the image below and it will take to to the page on my website where you may download the SVG file for free........the file is also available in other formats.....

Once I had the pieces cut out with my Cricut I then took the pieces and coated with my Versamark pad and coated with white for the body, black distress for the hat and copper for the nose , walnut stain distress embossing powders and embossed with my heat gun.......I used wiggly eyes and used black brads for the mouth....for the buttons I used black rhinestones.......fibers for the scarf and used my Crop-O-Dile to punch and place an eyelet through the hat to thread ribbon and lace through for the tag part........






And the last one I did I also created for my ARTHaven Creations & Friendships group...The theme for this was Playing Card - King of Hearts.......I'm NOT crazy about this item....I was deliberately trying to do something outside my box......and try to make it look different then I usually do.....well....I definately think I achieved that but I don't "REALLY" like it.....However I'm sure hoping the lady who will receives it will like it......I used rubberstamps, embossing sleeve, Distress Inks, embellishments, markers, embossing powders, rhinestones on this creation....my most favorite thing to use was a new tool I got for Christmas...my Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper....I LOVE this tool....It will round a corner on ALOT of different mediums and it will round the corners in 2 different sizes....1/4" & 1/2"......I'm thrilled that I purchased this tool....couldn't decide if I really wanted it or not.........now I KNOW I'm happy I did......




Okie Dokie...That's my creations so far....I have one more day of my weekend left and I'm looking forward to it...I'm also looking forward to only a 3 day work week this week.......cause next weekend I just get to play play play!!!!!!  I'm trying to make a commitment to myself this year to remember to play with paper because I ENJOY it....not because I feel like I NEED to.....does that make sense??????

I hope you are all able to find something here that you like or perhaps can use....I can never say THANK YOU enough for taking time out of your day to come by and visit with me.....But I must truly tell you it touchs my heart when you do.......The WWW is such a big place and for someone to take time out of their day to visit with me in this big world is priceless to me!!!!!  I pray you are all blessed with a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year and I do hope you will come by and visit with me again....until then....

Best in 2010! - I'm going to Bollywood


Bingo! 09 was a great year for Smearballs & I expect 2010 to be full of crazy projects with lots to smear about. I'm starting the year off by getting out of this winter shitfridge - hopping on a flight to India in a few hours. I hope to orchestrate some kind of Bollywood style music video while I'm over there. I'm bringing a badass new camera & some microphones so I'm all set to capture the sights and sounds of the colourful overpopulated country. I also plan on putting on some lululemon tight as fuck yoga pants & spend a week flaking out all over an ashram so when I get home I can tell chicks I'm a hyper spiritual yoga master who studied in India. Then I can get them to bend over backwards for me like a monkey with rickets. Should be a fun trip. My code name is Butter Chicken. I'll probably shit my pants at least once. ** remember the left hand is for wiping your ass & the right hand is for eating... and cleaning the shit off your left hand.

Best in 2010. See you in a month or 2

SmearForce Gymkhana 2 REMIX

Mr. Davy Force & I worked on this puppy over the last couple months & It's nice to finally see it online. This was a really fun project. Ken Block let us go totally ape shit with the footage and do whatever we wanted which was awesome especially since he made it an official DC video in the end. Special thanks to Rodrigo Wilde for 3d modeling the shoes and constructing the MalWart parking lot / living room scene.

Enjoy.

More to come in the near future from our new remix team.

Speaking of Boobs....

A while back I was asked by the jingle company I work for if I could write a song for a PSA about breast cancer. They said MTV Canada was putting it out and it was a little edgy. Once I saw the spot I knew what they meant. It became so controversial they were talking about it on CNN, Good Morning America, Leno, The View and a bunch of other shows I hate. So in accordance with Breast Awareness month (Dec 16-23) I thought I'd Smear about it. The track is also on itunes.

Halland Oates .COM

I was checking out my favorite "mom rock" band's website only to discover that at some point they switched who was "The guy with the mustache". Very confusing.

The Merry Christmas on the tag I actually did with my Cricut and some mini Gel Pens.....LOVE it....I placed it where I wanted it located on the shape I wanted....placed the words on one layer in Inkscape and the scallop on another layer below it......turned the eye off the scallop layer and printed the words Merry Christmas first.....INSTEAD of hitting UNLOAD I PUSHED LOAD......then I swapped out the gel pen for the blade housing....closed the eye on the Merry Christmas...opened the eye on the scallop shape and then cut....WORKS LIKE A CHARM!!!!!  The Scallop shapes are a file I created months ago and shared also...if you like it you may click SCLP3ST to download the scallop oval file......


Ok....These next creations are for some tags I designed and created in Inkscape per a request from my boss.......I LOVE the way these turned out......








These files have MULTIPLE uses.......as you'll see on my next project........Used my embossing sleeves to decorate, embossing powders.....Tim Holtz Distress Inks...Skittles...Ribbon and Glitter.....LOVE the way these turned out and they resize wonderfully!!!  If you're interested in these files I've got a picture of the SVG files below...you can just click the image and it will take you to the page on my website where you can download the svg files for free......I do offer them in other formats for a small fee.....
