12 Tags of 2015: June

June's Tag by Tim Holtz was nice and simple this month, but yet was packed with some great techniques! I'm loving the new Blank Ink Pads, that you can custom make using your reinkers. Now your creativity is limitless. I also love applying ink to the stencil, spritzing it with water and then using it to mono print with.

Here is my versions of Tim's Tag. I pretty much stuck to his original design. I didn't have a real straw, so I die cut a piece of green paper and added glossy accents to give it that plastic look and add a "K" charm.

I got busy and forgot all about February's Tag challenge, in my defense it was a short month. ;) I'm in LOVE with the first two colors released for the Color of The Month program and haven't played with them yet, so I thought today was the day to pull them out and create.

Following Tim's lead, I applied varies color of Distress Paint to my craft sheet, spritzed them with water and dragged my tag through the colors. My first attempt was kind of muddy and not very vibrant, so I dried the paint and repeated the same steps over the top of the mud.  


Loved applying the embossing powder to the top of the pasted image. Tim recommends waiting for the texture paste to dry completely, I did wait for about 1 minute and got bored. I hate waiting for things to dry, so away with my heat gun I went. The paste bubbled up since it was still wet, but I like it and I'm calling it texture.

Now time for my own twist. I dug around in my spare metal pieces and found some really cool laser cut wood gears that I had picked up at an event 2 years ago, part of a hinge that the other piece got lost and Tim's new phrase stickers.

Thank you for stopping my and checking out my creation. Hope this inspires to take the #12tagsof2015 challenge.


12 Tags of 2015-January

Here is my version for Tim Holtz's January tag for the 12 Tags of 2015 Challenge. I completed this a few days befroe leaving for CHA so I was pressed for time and pretty much followed his instructions step by step. I did do a little of my own twist by ruffing up the edges of the tag and inked everything in Black Soot Distress Ink and I added a few more stars. I like doing things in 3's. My tag turned out alot darker and I got carried away with the white splatter paint. It made me Happy, I just couldn't stop.
