12 Tags of 2014-August

This months tag was all about "Following Your Creative Muse." I have TONS of Halloween themed stamps that have never been used, so for this tag challenge, I thought it was time to get them out and play. I love all of the layers and dimension that Tim Holtz added to his tag this month. Here is my interpretation of what he showed on his August tag this month.

 

I love how the Tissue tape resists the Distress Stain and lets the stamped image on top really pop. When you are doing this make sure to stamp your image with Archival Ink, other wise your image will smear. I felt that the skull didn't stand out enough on the tissue tape, so I stamped it again on watercolor paper, colored it in with Distress Markers, cut it out and then popped it on top of the stamped image.

The properties of the new Ranger Texture Paste are pretty cool too. I applied the paste through one of Tim's new stencils and let it dry. Then applied the Distress Stain over the area. The paste sucked up the Distress stain and took the color very nice and the Tissue Tape under the paste resisted the Distress Stain, so the textures image really pops.

12 tags of 2014-July

This was one of my favorite tags that I have created so far by following along with Tim Holtz each month on his 12 tags of 2014 challenge. I absolutly love this new Sizzix die with the sea horse and the bubbles embossing folder. I created this tag with lots of Ranger products and Sizzix dies. I followed Tim's technique with the crackle paint on the sea horses and the paint for the tag background and then got bored and of course had to make it my own and change things up. I'm not good at following directions, I have to do my own things. ;)

Altered Burlap Panel: CC3 Challenge 6 #CC3C

I've had so much fun each week playing along with the CC3 Challenges. I'm always working on classes and samples and rarely get to work on projects for myself. So, I've committed/forced myself to do each challenge for myself and not skip a one. I have to admit this week was hard to find motivation to complete the task at hand, since I'm still playing catch up from being on vacation. But I feel like it's going to the gym. If you miss one day then it's easier to miss the second day. So I buckled down and decided to play with some Idea-ology products that I had been hoarding for that perfect project. You know what I'm talking about, we all have those stashes.

I loved playing with the "Found Relatives" from Tim Holtz's last release. The vintage pictures are so cute and I don't feel guilty cutting them up and coloring them like I do with my own old family photos.  

Thank you to The Funkie Junki Boutique for the chance to win a $25 shopping spree. It's always fun to get new goodies to play with and create fun art.
