TTT – July 2016

hello everyone!!

i am here today to  share my take on Tim’s Twelve Tags – Remix 2016 (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2016-july/). for all the step outs and the hows to’s drop on over to his site and following along!!TTT july 2016

I always forget how much fun the distress markers can be. I have them and love looking at the them and moving them around my desk but since I am not someone who just colours, I never use them….  I am so going to stop doing that!

so for my tag, I decided to use the Nautical Blueprint (https://stampersanonymous NULL.com/tim-holtz-cling-mount-stamps-nautical-blueprint-cms194 NULL.html)stamp set and couldn’t decide which stamp to use so end up creating two tags

tim holtz explore the beach I love how because I used the micro glaze (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-DISTRESS-MICRO-GLAZE-Ranger-TDA46967-TDA46967)that when it came time to add my spritz of black using this tool (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Distress-Marker-SPRITZER-TOOL-Ranger-TDA39730-64479)as well as my background blues, it doesn’t touch my shells!!tim holtz discover the ocean I also love how the distress markers, when blended using the water brush, (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product?id=92731&currency=USD) actually make me think the colouring of this shell is real!SA seashell stamp

and the star dollar, which up until this year I so wanted to find one, until I realized that they were live creatures..now I just want to see one as it buries itself in the sand!SA sanddollar

and as i was adding bits to my tag one of tim’s foliage flowers (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-FOLIAGE-Flowers-Leaves-Hardware-Metal--TH92788-15696)  fell onto the floor and I thought. hmmm I wonder.. so out came my pliers and I have tried shaping it like the inside of my sand dollar.. kind of cool I think!!

exploring the beach and discovering the ocean are two of my favourite things to do in the summer so this months techniques and remixes fit perfectly! totally brought me joy creating these two tags this month! thanks Tim!

hope you all are taking the time to create art from your soul!

flowers and butterflies oh my!

hello everyone!!

today I am here to show you a quick project that I have been working on using a few of my favourite sizzix dies and finally playing with my distress crayons (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Distress-Crayons-SET-1-TDBK47902-TDBK47902RI)!

so basically I used a smaller canvas which I covered in paper, both text and scrapbook paper, a thin layer of  gesso to blend it together,  matte medium and lots of distress crayons and that is what I started with.

I then started the whole process of covering  a few pieces of mixed media cardstock (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Ranger-MIXED-MEDIA-CARDSTOCK-ISD44628-ISD44628RI)with the same matte medium and distress crayons along with some texture paste to create Eileen Hulls Heart and Soul (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661108/sizzix-bigz-die-flower-heart-soul)and Pansy flowers (http://www NULL.sizzix NULL.com/661109/sizzix-bigz-die-flower-pansy)and of course Tim Holtz butterfly frenzy (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Sizzix-Die-BUTTERFLY-FRENZY-Decorative-Strip-Sizzlits-659575-64384). and here you have the whole thing!butterfly flurry

the back of the flowers and leaves were simply stamped using a background script stamp. I love how the texture paste added that little bit of extra to the flowers. for the Spring Leaves (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Sizzix-LEAVES-SPRING-Bigz-Die-661111--661111SZ?currency=USD), I used the two green distress crayons and blended them to give the variation in colour!

when cutting out the flurry of butterflies I had cut a few out of the paper that had the texture paste… love how they turned out too!!tim holtz butterfly

by far the Limitations (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Sizzix-Framelits-LIMITATIONS-Wafer-Thin-Die-And-Stamp-Set-660189-660189TH?currency=USD) stamp/die set is my  favourite combo yet. so much so a little funny story.. I have ‘lost’ mine a couple of time’s and reordered to have only found it again and ended up with 5 sets!! like is said.. my favourite!!

so here you have my newest little piece of art

nothing like a dream

it’s a smaller canvas so just the perfect size to hang in my studio or to set on my desk

if you have any questions please let me know!!

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Frilly and Funkie all lined up  (http://frillyandfunkie NULL.blogspot NULL.ca/2016/07/all-lined-up NULL.html)

TTT – June 2016

hello everyone!!

i am here today to  quickly share with you all my version of this months Tim’s Twelve Tags – Remix 2016 (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2016-may/). for all the step outs and the hows to’s drop on over to his site and following along!!

for my tag i used pretty much the same as tim did (lucky to have most of what he used!!) but with just a couple different choices…i wanted mine to be a girl so by using tim’s dimensional cutting pad  (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product?id=112050&currency=cad&gclid=CMm578zBz80CFQMHaQod0QIMnA)by Sizzix i was able to die cut the dapper gentleman into  dapper woman by removing the moustache!!!

TTT juneor it could be a gentleman with out a moustache….just by using that one little dimensional plate, a tag or a father’s day card, could be easily altered…love new techniques and products remixed with old!!!

june tag

oh.. i’ve just had another idea…..LOL

hope you all have had a wonderful scrappy month

till next time

Sizzix paper leather sign

hello everyone

today i am her just to show you quickly the other side of my  ‘Welcome’ sign I created for my studio

Eileen Hull Flower dies

I once again used the Sizzix Paper Leather (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/sz-661147 NULL.html?w=paper+leather)sheets. yes, I am addicted to them!  I cut out several of Eileen’s flowers (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/products/?w=eileen+hull+flowers), both from her thinlits and her steel rule dies,  ran them through my vagabond using foil and some texture fade folders to make marks on the Paper leather and then scrunched, coloured and glued them onto the back of my sign

see you soon I also added in a prima nest and some ideaology pieces and I backed the whole thing with a mirrored sheet (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/pp-av-th93029 NULL.html).  for my dome I attached some tissue wrap paper (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/ch-th93275 NULL.html)which I had stamped with #hashtag stamp (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/pp-cms183 NULL.html)set and coated the whole thing using some Vintage collage medium (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/ri-tda47940 NULL.html).  I cut out my ‘see you soon’ letters (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/sz-658563 NULL.html)and embossed using some frozen foil sheets (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/ri-isf48008 NULL.html)prior to attaching to my mirrored sign.

To complete my frame I added a few pieces of lace that I had cut out using Tim’s lace thinlit (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/sz-661499 NULL.html)and some, yes you guessed it, Leather Paper!!

that’s it for now. told you it would be a quick one!

come back on Thursday where I will have yet another project created using Eileen’s Recipe box (http://www NULL.scrapbook NULL.com/store/sz-659876 NULL.html)and some more Leather Paper!!

hope you are enjoying your day
