12 Tags inspired OTP

As always inspired by the techniques of Tim Holtz

I really love the embossed foil tape technique so much so I used it Last year to create a mask (the technique cropped up in CC2 from memory)

I really love how the foil tape covers the shape of the Mask so well and gets all the contours without difficulty.

The Mask was a cheap one from ebay that I took the fabric and other tacky stuff that was on it off. What I have discovered is that the pre made masks are stronger and better to work with than the paper mache kind and often cheaper and some are lined as an added bonus for comfort.

Anyway here is the Mask

and from each side (I used some watch parts and mini cogs and gears from ideaology)

It was a birthday gift for a friend. It has a Game of thrones, Dr Who (insert other cool nerdy references here) type feel to it.

I was really happy with the end result.

If you want to do this just emboss a few pieces of the foil sheet/tape at once, do the aging technique linked to above and go to town.

3 Simmilar but different Headbands

Featuring Satin Roses, feathers, rhinestones, and Tinsel Ribbon I sat down last night and was sorting through some of my craft stuff. I had not opened my hair accessories box in some time.

So as I was watching the J K Rowling story I started to play and experiment.

So here is what I created:
