well today is one of those days that i dream about when i am at work.
it was a perfect kind of day.. the sun shone, the water was perfectly cool, refreshments were refreshing and i was able to create in the sun… a perfect kind of day to make my rendition of Tims July tag (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2015-july/)
this month i was able to play a bit more with the micro-glaze. yes it is as cool as you think it is!!! i followed along the techniques that Tim has shown and this is what i came up withlove creating in nature…makes me a very happy girl! hope you have played along this month too!
okay.. now this was a fun one!!! not that they all aren’t really!!
so this was my second time playing with the custom blend ink pads!! I am totally addicted to these as I am sure anyone else who has tried them are !!
I have a few of them in stock… (like 12!) so have been able to play and make a few sets. my two favorite are my original one I made using blues and this one which was made in my last class. And well because I love them so much I made a green one too!!
but really I am not here today to talk about them but to share with you my June Tag I created following Tim’s tutorial here (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2015-june/)!!
one of my favourite releases ever…the custom pads…i chose to use clear embossing paste to highlight my words & butterfly
loved creating this months tag..it is a special one that will be treasured for years i am sure!!
i know… a slight variation of his but I am quite happy with it!!
have you created yours yet!!!!
i did it again!! i know it is only the 4th month of the year but i have actually made a point of being sure to do each one of Tim’s (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2015-april/)challenges each month and am aiming to do it this time the whole year!!
i absolutely was a fish out of water for this technique. i have all the markers, all of them except Aprils, but i never seem to use them… i really am not sure what i need to do with them. so when this months tag challenge involved them i loved the step outs!!
for my tag i changed it up a bit.. i didn’t have the exact products used by Tim but loved how he coloured the flowers…use of the spritzer, stitching of the tag.. everything
i didn’t have the dies he used but have the two Christmas sets so used the word BELIEVE and then cut out a few of the other words to make up the word ALWAYS
as always i love putting thought/feeling into my projects so this one i couldn’t help but think of a friend of mine who is running her first half in Vancouver.. away from all her running peeps (except two!) so wanted to create a piece for her.
i hope you all have taken the time to create along with Tim this month. i really enjoyed and love this tag… one technique i will for sure be revisiting!!!
