TTT – August

well i made a decision that i simply can not wait until the perfect moment to sit down and create my tag each month for the 12 tags of 2014 (http://timholtz challenge that tim puts on…i await each month for the 1st to see what wonders he has created to only not take the time to more i say!

now i couldn’t do/use the same products that tim showed as i have packed most of my art room up in preparation for selling.. the house, not the art supplies!!

so i made a few substitutions.

i tried using what tissue tape i had but it didn’t work with the stamp i wanted to use so instead i used a torn piece of tissue paper
i had also packed away all my distress stains, except for tarnished bronze i believe, so instead used distress re-inkers and lots of water


so this wasn’t working, the stamp i mean, so that is why i used the tissue for my final submission


but i love that when using the re-inkers i had enough to do my first tag and second tag and even enough to have a  mop up tag!

sewing on my tag

i love sewing on my tags!! i am not sure why i don’t do it more !!

so here is my final tag. i am so very very happy how it turned out!!
TTT August 2014

i used some tim stamps as well as one of Dina’s (http://dinastamps NULL.typepad!! i absolutely love all of them!

to see all the steps do step on over to Tim’s (http://timholtz site and watch and follow along with his challenge!!
i think one of my favourite parts of this month was using the distress embossing powder to simulate rust!! loved learning / seeing ways to use my ‘tools’ in a different way

have fun!!

  1. What an amazing take! Love the substitutions too! Great thinking! Great face as well!

  2. Wow Diana, I love your take on Tim’s tag! The face is so beautiful and I love the background you created. I am finding this month’s tag a bit of a struggle despite being totally in love with Distress Stains, but I am determined to keep on trying! Anne x

  3. I think your tag is wonderful! I love the colors you used too.
