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.

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.

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.

Let's get Dylusional with Art Journaling! 

Dylusions Spring Art Journal Page 

I absolutely LOVE these new Floral Stamps from Dyan Reavely and couldn't wait to peel the packaging open and play with them the day they came into the store. The flowers are created from book print pages that I cleaned my stencils off on. Dylusion Sprays are amazing, vibrant and I don't want to waste even a drop. For step by step written instructions and photos on how I completed this page, you can visit Ranger Inks blog and check out my tutorial on "Dylusions Spring Art Journal Page."
