12 Tags of 2015: March

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.

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.
