if you visit on a regular basis you know that I am a Tim Holtz fan and have been creating my own versions of his 12 Tags of 2013. Check out Tim's tag here.
This was my first chance to use the new Distress Paints. Oh so fun! Looking forward to getting more and especially the metallic. I'm pleased with my first attempt. More experimentation to follow.
Love the dragon fly! The blues and greens with a hint of metallic stain is such a calming background.
Never get tired of creating custom ribbon using distress and the crinkle ribbon!
Stamped the 4 from the Numeric stamp set and distressed with paints and stains. The corner piece was a left over from an embossed piece of foil tape.
These tags are such a great way to try new techniques, improve my skill, and most of all to learn!
I am so grateful for the crafting community both online and at my local scrapbook stores. Such a wealth of talent and inspiration. Thank You all for sharing what you create and how you make art.
National Scrapbook Day is fast approaching. If you are fortunate enough to have a local scrapbook or art store check them out to see if they are having an event. Both of our stores in Chico are having 3 day events. Check out Chico Scrapbooks and Paradise Scrapbook Boutique if you live in the North State area. I encourage all you crafters to support your LSS (local scrapbook store). They provide not only products but classes, inspiration, and a community of crafters. If we all visit and spend some money at least once a month we will help keep this valuable resource in our communities.
Thank You so much for stopping by. I really like to get your comments. Happy Creating!
