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 NULL.com/12-tags-of-2014-august/) 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 create..no 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!
i love sewing on my tags!! i am not sure why i don’t do it more !!
i used some tim stamps as well as one of Dina’s (http://dinastamps NULL.typepad NULL.com/ponderings/)ladies!! i absolutely love all of them!
to see all the steps do step on over to Tim’s (http://timholtz NULL.com/12-tags-of-2014-august/) 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
