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.

Distress Watercoloring: CC3 Challenge 5 #CC3C

This week my husband and I finally got to get away and take a short vacation for our 10 year anniversary. We went to Michigan and spent the week with my best friend from college, Kim, at her family's cottage on Crystal Lake. It is simply beautiful and inspiring there. The water is so clear and the weather was wonderful. I knew when I got back from vacation that I would have tot many things to catch up on, so I took my traveling Art Box with me to work on the Distress Watercoloring Challenge. It felt wonderful and peaceful to sit in the grass and feel the cool breeze coming off of the water as I stamped and colored.

This is one of my favorite tags that I created beach side using the Distress Watercoloring technique. I love this color palete. It is so easy to work with and seams to be my favorite go to colors.

 

I love seeing everyone's take on each challenge. There are truly some very talented crafters out there. Thank you Linda Ledbetter for organizing this challenge bi-weekly and a huge Thank You out to Inspiration Emporium for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate just for playing along in the challenge this time.

Texture Paste: CC3 Challenge 4 #CC3C

This time the CC3 Challenge is Texture Paste. This is one of my all time favorite techniques, because I like things to be chunky and have multiple layers. I've been playing with the Dreamweaver's Stencil paste looooong before Wendi introduced it. There are so many different fun colors and they come in gloss and matte finishes. We carry the full line of Dreamweaver's Stencil Paste here at Scrapbook-N-Memories.

For this challenge I felt that it was time to get my Art Journal out again and play. I used the Seasonal Distress Stains, Distress Ink Pads and Layering Stencils from Tim Hotlz.

Here is a close up of all those fun yummy layers. I love that you can't tell which layer came first. Almost like the Chicken vs. The Egg debate, which came first?!

I want to send a huge Thank You out to Linda again for having these fun challenges. Everyone's projects just keep getting better and better each time. Also a huge Thank You out to The Funkie Junkie Boutique for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate.
