12 Tags July Edition

My time has been flying along, due to a foggy lense I had to re take my pics so this has kind of been waiting to be blogged for about a week now (oops)

Click to see Tim’s Take on July’s 12 tagsI 

and here is my Take on the techniques:

I loved Tim’s brayer technique and as soon as I saw it had the thought of how cool it would be to allow the colours to blend together a little, of course I tried 4 different pieces of white cardstock and each one turned out completely differently so I went with it.

Instead of doing each colour separately like Tim did I dropped a few drops of each colour on my craft mat. Then bounced the brayer over the colours. You can see the results in my background.

I used a bella chipboard frame covered in Rock Candy Crackle and then some various stains.

What I love the most about the frame is the piece of worn leather that is actually from an old Jeans Label that was so worn whatever had been in it before was gone so I stamped one of Tim’s Stamps on it from a travel set I have. Stamped in Fired Brick

I also used the big map stamp with weathered wood distress ink for a little bit of background texture.

Added in some stickers I got off ebay that fit in with the whole Tim Holtz look. Added some tissue tape, and buttons and viola My Mixed Media Journaling Page for July (along with Tim’s Alphabet cards for the July)
