Inspiration Quotations for Holidays and Balance

Sharing the holiday with other people, and feeling that you’re giving of yourself, gets you past all the commercialism.

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.
Calvin Coolidge

Maybe Christmas, the Grinch thought, doesn’t come from a store.
Dr. Seuss

Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.
Dale Evans

May the lights of Hanukkah usher in a better world for all humankind.
Author Unknown

A snowflake is one of God’s most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together!

In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth.

“I Don’t Know What To Journal” Myth-Buster Prompt #15!

Welcome to our “I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO JOURNAL ABOUT” MYTH-BUSTER PROMPT #15 by Tangie!

Prompt: If you could be any age again for one week, what age would you be?

Journal your thoughts and upload your page to your blog or favorite gallery. Link it up in the comments of this blog post.

by Julie Ann Shahin, Social Media Team for Studio Tangie

Remember how Scrooge was able to visit his younger self with the Ghost of Christmas past? Let’s pretend you not only visit your younger self, but you get to be that age for 7 days again!

Should you decide on based on your favorite memories? Perhaps there is a time in your life you would like to change the ending? Perhaps you just want to make more of a difference to the people you knew at that time?

Would you just enjoy being in a younger body that can move, shimmy, and shake much more able than you can now? Or would you give yourself some advice now that hindsight is 20/20?

How would you spend your days? Would you enjoy sleeping in or not want to miss a single minute and wake at the crack of dawn?

What about the fashion of that time? Would you revel in an 80′s hair mullet or 70′s disco clothing?

Do you think times were simpler then? Did you have more or less stress?

Let’s take a look at how the creative team tackled this prompt!

Inspiration for IDKWTJ Myth-Buster Prompt #15 by the Studio Tangie Creative Team

Heather aka sparklyduck75

Sometimes I’d like to go back in time to when I was six or seven, the week around Christmas. Everything felt so beautiful and bright, not just because of the decorations everywhere, but because the family was together and in love. We hadn’t yet learned what anguish would feel like, and were blissful in our naivete.

But living in an old feeling, even a good one, is a pretty sure way to die empty. Looking around now, there are new joys to experience, new moments to embrace, new memories to make. I bless the life we used to know, and I am content that it is gone. The life of today compels me forward by its own amazing glow. I bless what is now. I bless what is to come.

For My Dad
September 9th, 1906-February 11th, 1983
I would love to travel back to the week before my 23rd birthday, just after graduating from Chiropractic school, I didn’t have a family of my own or a full time practice yet, I didn’t live 3000 miles away from my parents yet…I would spend those 7 days with my beloved father, who died all too soon a year later.

But that week, the sun was still shining, he wasn’t so very ill that the stories had stopped for lack of breath. We could still walk together and hold hands, watching the change of light over the tomatoes in the garden, still sneak some potatoes from under the plants for your Celtic soul to have with every dinner.

I would say all the things that were stuck in my throat, write down the names and stories of those people in the old photos, re-work all world policies and health care with you from the couch. Eat butter pecan ice cream for dinner and watch endless episodes of Mash.

7 days. Just to hear your voice again, just to have those precious everyday moments where love truly lives.

This page assumes that I would be able to go back in time to change something about myself with the knowledge I have in the present. I realize that this would alter my future, however, I believe in destiny so I think I would somehow still end up with the wonderful life I have now!

Art Journaling 102: Holiday Hybrid Feature with a Christmas Ornament Tutorial!

Happy Saturday friends!

Today we have a couple Holiday Hybrid ideas for you, with an awesome Tutorial for Christmas Ornaments by Deb aka pennyshilling you’ll want to check out!

Let’s make this Hybrid Crafting Saturday! Make a new ornament for your collection, and perhaps a few to give as gifts. My sister always gives me an ornament for Christmas, so I’m going to try Deb’s tutorial to make for my sister.

I love customizing my craft projects with Tangie’s products because they give it such a cool flair, with her artsy style that I love so much. I never have to worry about making a mistake, because then I can just re-print the paper and re-do it, as many times as necessary…whereas if you purchased a piece of paper, you have just that piece of paper – and I often hear that people are afraid of ruining that gorgeous piece of paper. It’s so much easier when you print your favorite Studio Tangie paper, and have no worries, since you know you can re-print it!

View Tangie’s Holiday Kits here.

 

Inspiration for Holiday Hybrid Crafts by the Studio Tangie Creative Team

Julie Ann

I was inspired by this Pinterest post, and used this pattern for the birds. I decided to amp up the design by using Tangie papers for all of the main parts, and I did use patterned cardstock for the inside wings.

The mirror is in our hallway, so it was a little difficult getting a really good photo, but you get the idea.

Art Journaling 102: Technique Focus – DIY Cluster Embellishments!

First Order of Business…

Oops! I forgot to post Tangie’s page last week for the prompt on Which movie star no longer living would you cast to star in a movie about your own life? Please forgive me Tangie!!!! (I think she was in Colorado and didn’t even notice. LOL)

Here is her amazing page that has been finished since September!

Ok, now onto new business!!! We’ve got a brand-new technique focus for you this week:

Technique Focus – Make Your Own Cluster Embellishments from Studio Tangie elements!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday if you celebrated Thanksgiving in the U.S., and also survived Black Friday shopping, if you were brave enough. I haven’t been out shopping in several years, I have decided to do all my shopping online, if not making things by hand. I am too old to have patience for the crowds at the stores nowadays!

If you’d like to find some zen after the shopping craziness, try your hand at our Technique Focus this week – use Studio Tangie elements to create Cluster Embellishments. This awesome idea came from our  own ingenius Creative Team Member Leslie aka lharvey81.

The idea is to take elements from a kit, or different kits, and create clusters that you’ll have ready to use when the mood strikes you to make a page! The page will come together all that much FASTER!

Let’s look at examples of clusters put together by the Creative Team, and how they used them on a page.

“I Don’t Know What To Journal” Myth-Buster Prompt #14!

Welcome to our “I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO JOURNAL ABOUT” MYTH-BUSTER PROMPT #14 by Tangie!

Prompt: You can cast any actor no longer alive to play you in a film about yourself. Who would you cast?

Journal your thoughts and upload your page to your blog or favorite gallery. Link it up in the comments of this blog post.

 

by Julie Ann Shahin, Studio Tangie Social Media Team


Do you have your popcorn ready to watch Lindsay Lohan, starring as Elizabeth Taylor, in Liz & Dick on November 26th? This is supposed to be the troubled actress’ comeback role. Do you think she can pull it off? Will you be watching?

 

Who would you cast to star in a movie about your own life? (Pick among actors or actresses no longer alive.) How would you begin to choose? Which would be your priority: your life story or whether the actor resembles you? Would it matter if the actor decidely resembles your own character (mannerisms, quirks, etc.)  in the movie, or would you give him/her freedom to develop those as he/she sees fit? Would the movie focus on how your life actually turned out, or how you would have liked your life to turn out?

 

“After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels.”
- Ann Richards

 

Growing up, we often watched musicals with my grandparents starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Musicals such as Swing Time. I was fairly uninspired for this prompt until I was looking through my stash of Old Hollywood vintage portraits, and saw Fred and Ginger. Although I haven’t danced in about twenty years, I thought Ginger Rogers would be the perfect choice to play me in my life story. I’m not quite sure what the story line would be yet, perhaps starting in my early 30′s finding the love of my life and getting married, a celebration of surviving my horrific twenties! I literally had a mid-life crisis yet I was only in my mid-twenties. I’m sure a flashback to those times would be in the movie as a dramatic point.

Now Ginger Rogers doesn’t exactly look like me, and I wouldn’t expect her to exactly act like me perfectly, as this would be a musical, and I don’t go through my day singing and dancing. Thus, my movie would be a bit fictionalized, and perhaps end the way I want it to.

Our Studio Tangie Creative Team also picked some gorgeous leading ladies from Old Hollywood for their art journaling pages for this prompt, from Vivian Leigh to Irene Dunn.  I believe that in ms. mauk’s page the title “Danke Schoen” is a song. Here are the lyrics:

Danke Schoen, Darling, Danke Schoen.
Thank you for all the joy and pain.
Picture shows, second balcony, was the place we’d meet,
Second seat, go Dutch treat, you were sweet.

Danke Schoen, Darling, Danke Schoen.
Save those lies, Darling don’t explain.
I recall, Central Park in fall.
How you tore your dress, what a mess, I confess.
That’s not all.

Danke Schoen, Darling, Danke Schoen.
Thank you for walks down Lover’s Lane.
I can see, hearts carved on a tree.
Letters inter-twined, for all time, yours and mine, that was fine.

Danke Schoen, Darling, Danke Schoen.
Thank you for seeing me again.
Though we go on our seperate ways,
Still the memory stays, for always, my heart says, DankeSchoen.

Danke Schoen, Oh Darling, Danke Schoen.
I said, Thank you for seeing me again.
Though we go- on our seperate ways,
Still the memory stays, for always, my heart says, DankeSchoen.

Danke Schoen, Auf Wiedersehn, Danke Schoen

Let’s take a look at the Creative Team’s pages!

Heather (sparklyduck75)

Irene Dunne is my favorite classic leading lady. She had an ease and openness about her, and a perfect balance of glamour and quirky humor, that made her feel like a real woman, never a magazine cut-out playing dress-up. I love the way she lived her life, by her own standards, politely calling the shots. When she wanted Hollywood, she had it. When she was ready to move on, she did it on her own terms, and spent the rest of her life doing charitable and philanthropic work. People who knew her always said she was a wonderfully warm, joyous, positive person and easy to be around. I’d love if all these things were true of me, too! So if they ever wanted to make a movie about me, I’d faint with a happy sigh to have Irene Dunne in the starring role… and Cary Grant can play my husband. Smile

Hybrid art journal page featuring Tangie’s Rubber Stamps Set #1


How I made this page – breaking all the rules!

I have some pages in my art journal that are half pre-made, where I play with products just for fun with no forethought or intention planned out. This is where I started with one of these pages, that had orange and purple misted on it, also with a green stencil, and some of Tangie’s circle stamps from Set #1 (currently sold out I believe, but you can buy Sets #4 and #5 here.)

Then I took one of Tangie’s 2011 printable art journal backgrounds…which she calls “Collage Sheets” if you do a search in her store. I tore the sides off so that you see just three ballerinas, and adhered the background to the page. Then I took aqua paint and made strokes along the left, bottom, and top edges of the background. This grounds the background and blends it into the rest of the page. I also made paint strokes in the right top and bottom corners.

I used stamps from Tangie’s Stamp Set #1 to add to the background. You can see in this image below where I added stamps. I overlapped the printed background.

I had cut out Fred and Ginger from a vintage book so they went in the center. I outlined them with a black marker. I used crayon and marker to give slight color to her face and hair, and ink to dab on slight color to her dress.

I cut out hearts from the remaining Collage Sheet, and put it to the right of Fred, and then below the hearts, I used elements from the Collage Sheets such as a playing card and domino for the border. The banner above their head is also from the Collage Sheet. Here I highlighted the elements and background from Tangie’s store.

Journaling (in background): Once upon a time I met a girl named Sharon. We were in fifth grade. I admired her because she was smart and honest. The other girls in our class approached me and asked me if they could cheat off me in math class. After being falsely accused of cheating in Catholic School, there was no way I was going to let someone undermine my good name. Of course, I said no. I decided right then and there that I would make friends with only the girls in our class that had integrity. Our group grew to include Linda, Erika, Melissa, and a few others. I was really proud of our circle of friends and the true bond that we shared. We were in Girl Scouts together for many years with Sharon’s mom as the troup leader and that brought us even closer. Growing up in rural Ohio like that was quite special. And then it all ended for me in ninth grade when my father moved us to Detroit for his job related to the automotive industry. I’ll never forget how the girls all gathered together at the front of the school to wish me good-bye when my parents came to pick me up on my last day of school on the day we moved away. That really meant a lot to me. I tried to stay in touch in the eighties letter-writing to them, yet we naturally grew apart. I visited a few times in the first few years, yet it was bittersweet. I grew depressed as I failed to fit into my new huge high school, and had trouble with my parents as I became a teenager. Fast forward twenty years, and I join Facebook. I start reconnecting with each of these lovely friends, and are able to interact with them on a daily basis again. I even attended my twenty-year reunion in 2009. That blew me away, because people were so happy to see me! Everyone was so nice. It was a real boost. Three years later and we are still connected and I know we will stay life-long friends. Amen to technology!

I went with supernatural Friendship on mine. This verse resonates deeply for me, because a team of doctors expected me to be born dead and said my mother was so sick, the birthing process would probably kill her, too. But Mom’s alive and well, and I just celebrated my 37th birthday, so there was definitely a greater hope at work for us, that the doctors couldn’t explain. The same God who brought us through those critical first moments of my life has carried me to this moment and will keep me the rest of the way. He is my constant hope and truest Friend.

You are my hope, O Lord God;
You are my trust from my youth.
By You I have been upheld from birth;
You are He Who took me out of my mother.
My praise shall be continually of You.
Psalm 71:5-6

“I Don’t Know What To Journal” Myth-Buster Prompt #13!

Welcome to our I Don’t Have Anything to Journal About” Myth-Buster Prompt #13 by Tangie!

Prompt: If you could have one superpower, which would it be?

Journal your thoughts and upload your page to your blog or favorite gallery. Link it up in the comments of this blog post.

 

by Julie Ann Shahin, Studio Tangie Social Media Team

Telepathy, telekinesis, enhanced intelligence, super strength, super speed, flight, teleportation, invisibility, shape-shifting – these are just a few of the most commonly imagined superpowers.   Which one appeals to you most? Why? Or do you long for a different type of power?

Our art journalers below chose some unique powers.

  • Rain would have the loving gift of healing power.
  • Heather dreams of house-keeping superpowers.
  • Your every thought would be known by Deb.
  • And I would be able to befriend anyone with my hypnotic charm as the strongest of my powers of persuasion.

 

MUST READ

 

Inspiration from the Studio Tangie Creative Team for Prompt #13

Rain

Journaling: If I could have one superpower, it would be absolute healing power, at the touch of my hand or wand or thought form, all illness would leave, transformed into light.

Deb aka pennyshilling

Journaling reads as follows……..
There are numerous
SUPERPOWERS
that I would love
to draw upon in
my day to day
LIFE
Right now having the ABILITY TO READ OTHERS MINDS would be most HELPFUL
Certainly not in a prying or devious way, but in a manner which would
ALLOW FOR FURTHER
UNDERSTANDING
It is so hard for some to SHARE OR EXPRESS their inner thoughts and feelings WHEN TIMES ARE TOUGH
OR COMPLICATED
and I can’t help but thinking
“If only I could read your mind love…..”

The last movie I cried over was a Queen Victoria double-feature: “The Young Victoria” and “Mrs. Brown.”

In “The Young Victoria”, Emily Blunt portrays Queen Victoria as a teenager making her ascent to the throne, and finding her footing as a woman, a monarch, and a wife to her beloved Prince Albert. Dame Judi Dench stepped into an older Victoria’s shoes in “Mrs. Brown,” a film about the relationship between the Queen and her friend and guardian, John Brown. Victoria was three years into an all-consuming grief following Albert’s devastating death before the feisty John Brown restored her to herself. I cried for Victoria in both films, both stories of her great loves and great agonies. I cried for how the love of a good man can illuminate a woman’s heart, and inspire her to live powerfully, even in love’s loss.

Quote: In the night of death, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing. –Robert Ingersoll
