This s my entry for the March 12 Tags Challenge on Tim Holtz Blog.
I really enjoyed making this Tag. Apart from the fact I love paint it reminded me of a few methods I haven't used for a while or had given up on.
|So this is my Entry for Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2015 - March|
Like for instance last year at the Clarity Stamp Open Days when I was demonstrating I showed a few ladies a tag I had done with the embossing paste on the Grunge Paste I was demonstrating but I hadn't quite got the results I wanted, so we did some Ad Lib demoes to see what else we could stick to GP. It's a great tip from Tim to let the paste dry before you use the Heat Gun - I wish I had listened BEFORE I embossed my with the Heat Gun, I would have had a much clearer image.
|So I wanted to start off the same as Tim and just go off on a tangent when I am ready.|
|Positioning is a big thing to me as in its the only time I am a bit OCD - I really try to be A Symmetrical but I just can't do it, but its all about balance anyway and drawing your eye to every corner of the tag. So I just added my bit of symmetry on the bottom.|
|But when it comes to paint and ink the OCD Symmetry thing goes out the window I am a totally different person when it comes to blending edges.|
|I did a bit of dripping too, I had to add white, I love white in paint and ink and pens and pencils, because I can't leave "white spaces" so I just add my own.|
|The Tag was pretty wet by the time I had finished playing so I double dipped onto another Tag. I will use that one another time.|
|This is it embossed, I love this background and I think the stamp just jumps off the Tag. These Paint colours by Ranger are lovely.|
|So the random GP - I love G|P as anyone who follows my Blog knows. Anyway I have had this Tim Holtz Stencil for ages and it gets used in my Journal and I thought it would be perfect for this Tag.|
|I was really enjoying this process just playing along to someone else's game so to speak!|
|So I will give you some Links here to Products. |
Clarity Stamp - Stamp
Tim Holtz Stencil
|Added one of my all time favourite embellishments in the Tim Holtz Range, I always have one pack of these in use, one in stock and one on order! As it should be.|
|Mmmmmmm see that Gap to the left, I just have to fill that in. !!!!|
|So my ingredients, back out with the Eye Test Stencil, one of Tim's nibs - I looorrrvvveee these, a bit of torn paper and some Tim Holtz Distress Inks (I buy mine through Clarity Stamp)|
|So lets go!|
|A quick random stencil job using the round blender - these are great too.|
|Finish off the edges a little to match the colours on the Tag.|
|Always print one background with an enclosing dark frame !! because it looks so mysterious. This is the Tag done and a nib and the message is? "See the World in all its Glory" You might not know why this is relevant to this Tag but I DO!. XXX|
