12 Tags from Tim Holtz – August

August 12 Tags

August 12 Tags

I love to participate in Tim’s 12 Tags.  This month’s was SUPER easy.  I love how the washi tape acted as a resist so none of the stains, paints or inks colored it.  I also like the Distress embossing powder and how it looks like rust.  I didn’t have the Vintago Photo color, but did have tea dye and I think it still works.  If you are going to do this, I recommend  (as did Tim but I failed to pay attention) you do your heat embossing before you attach the plastic film strip because it melts……   I didn’t have his Texture Paste, but used standard molding paste from the art store and it colored just as nicely.  I also brought out some old sewing rub-ons as I don’t have my sewing machine out.   Hope you enjoy!

12 Tags of 2014 – June

June 2014


A little diversion while on my lunch break to bring the June tag from the 12 Tags of 2014 by Tim Holtz.  I love this technique using a stencil and it’s SO easy.  All you do is apply distress ink to the stencil, spritz with water and apply on watercolor paper.  Allow the ink to soak in and put a paper towel over the top to pickup the extra ink – then remove stencil and TADA.  The link to the 12 tags above gives the full tutorial.  Thanks for stopping by!
