TTT – November 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-november/). for all the step outs and the hows to’s drop on over to his site and following along!! you have one day left to post your take!!

for me this month was a reminder of how much i love to just lay a  sheet of remnant rubs (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Idea-ology-GILDED-HOLIDAYS-Remnant-Rubs-TH93250--TH93250-) on a tag and let be what happens after a quick rub..the randomness of the whole thing is what makes a wonderful background for the tag or art journal page and i love that

so here is my take:

november-tagi chose to use the white remnant rubs as i am in full Christmas mode in the studio preparing for an upcoming class and with the forecast of some snow i thought i would do the whole winter theme… i used the snowflake from the blueprint christmas (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Cling-Rubber-Stamps-CHRISTMAS-BLUEPRINT-CMS135-46738?currency=USD) stamp set along with an idea-ology piece and the back ground the snowflake from the layered snowflake (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Tim-Holtz-Sizzix-Bigz-Die-and-Texture-Fades-LAYERED-SNOWFLAKE-660040-660040TH) die

november-tag-believe i loved using the metal sheets as the background for my believe…shiny things make me happy!!november-tag-snowflakehope you all enjoyed creating your latest piece and that you have uploaded your projects for all to enjoy!

see you next month with some more pieces from me

the escape

hello everyone!

just dropping in quickly to show you a piece i created just to create.

i am in the middle of trying to make a decision on a couple of things and i find the best way to escape is just immerse myself into a piece of art…..that is what this is.

the-escapei share most of my everyday babbling on my instagram feed or my missusgmoments studio Facebook feed so i would love to have you drop by either of those places and follow along!!! i am however going to try harder to share my every day art work here on my site as well!

hope you have been creating lately. i will be back later this week with my take on Tim’s tag!

Eileen Hull / DCWV – Holiday project

 hello everyone!!! hasn’t this been a fun and festive month with the Eileen Hull Inspiration team creating pieces using the DCWV paper line!! I have seen so many projects that I want to recreate.. so many talented folks. I hope you have checked it out!!
(https://1 NULL.bp NULL.blogspot NULL.com/-dm2GsquRXgU/WCA18WyE-gI/AAAAAAAAplc/2jtihw8VrlY8qFzFJK-fcX9bvAaQgTGTwCLcB/s1600/DCWV%2BNov%2B16%2Blogo NULL.jpg)
for my project this month decided to create a piece to display on my desk at work, that is if it makes it into the office and off my window sill in my studio!
so i started out by cutting out 5 ATB’s using matboard (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp NULL.com/product/Sizzix-LITTLE-SIZZLES-MAT-BOARD-PACK-6x13-WHITE-656492--656492SZ?currency=USD). I love using this stuff as it makes for a solid base when creating a 3D project.
next I started cutting out  using the DCWV Cranberry Christmas (http://www NULL.michaels NULL.com/dcwv-cranberry-christmas-premium-stack/10491306 NULL.html#q=cranberry+christmas&start=1)paper pack squares in various sizes. I absolutely love the richness of this paper line and the foil bits oh my!!
counting-up-the-squaresthen the planning began and the first of three romance flowers were created. I glued the squares together for each pedal on all three sets in order to be sure there was colour from all sides!
romance-flower eilieens-romance-flowerand it was time to figure out what I wanted these blocks to say and in what order… so a bit of planning as I was laying them out….
designing-the-sides
and now I think I have it… except for a few changes…
atb-planningand now here you have the completed set (and look no ink!!)
eileen-hull-3dblock christmas-3d-blocks-joy christmas-3d-peace christmas-3dblock-loveI love love love how these turned out.. and that I can arrange them in all different ways… hmmm.. I wonder if there is another word in there as well using the letters; perhaps I should add some more…
 oh and I was just thinking the “LOVE” side could be displayed during February for Valentines day…yes.. these blocks will get lots of use in my home
hope you have been following along and checking out all the projects on this fun blog hop we have had with DCWV this month!
oh and that you are creating!!

TTT – October 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-october/). for all the step outs and the hows to’s drop on over to his site and following along!!

this month i had the best time ever creating my tag.. want to know why???  well you see Auntie Carol was here visiting over the weekend and we were down in the studio thinking what could we work on and i asked her how about Tim’s tag as i hadn’t done mine yet this month and it was a fun one to do!!!

so out came the ephemera, the foil, the die, paint and alcohol inks! and with lots of coffee and a few laughs here is what we came up with…tim-holtz-october-tags

we pretty much followed Tim’s tag instructions for this month. i love that i had the opportunity to share my love of Tim’s tags with her!

i love love love the creepiness of my zombie!
