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 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 !!

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 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

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.

  5. Bravo. The best part about your story is how you had to improvise and look what it got you. Love Dina’s stamp too.

  6. Love your spin on Tim’s tag – it’s fabulous! Congrats on the win. Off to pin your beauty now.
