Tag Archive | Rock Candy Crackle Paint

12 Tags of 2014 – July

I know cutting it fine yet again….

I have had this almost finished for about a week but was stuck on what I wanted the finishing touches to be.

There were so many awesome techniques it was hard to decide what I wanted to do.

Click here to see the original and to learn the techniques

I used some plastic packaging, the Cracked embossing folder, Peacock feathers distress – ink, paint, stain and marker (I know), silver distress paint, A muse token, the paper twine in striped, rock candy crackle, milled lavender stain and paint, Worn Lipstick (I think) paint, Picked Raspberry Marker, Mini Gears and a wing from that Idea-ology set as well as grungeboard from a basics plain set (the heart and wing), film strip ribbon, and Linen ribbon (I know my how my stash has grown). I also used the Spritzer and my new fav go to must have tool wish I had had one sooner the Tiny Attatcher.

Here is my Tag

july tag

It is funny how things that look so simple can be so involved I used the paint and stain technique for the background tag, the embossed plastic, the stained crackle (although mine does not show as much), the outlining with a distress marker though I slightly blended it for the look I wanted). The only technique I have yet to try is the making of my own sand and that is on my list to try at some point I have an idea in mind for it actually.

So that is my Tag for July wonder what August will bring 🙂

Really Loved how these turned out.

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)

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)
