Day 5 tags all together

Marbled stains technique

My marbling didn't turn out as nice as I would have liked and the tree stamp ended up looking splotchy. This does however make the tag look very aged which is interesting. Feedback?

Stamping with stains technique

This was a very interesting technique. I loved my tag up until the point of stamping black images on the tag. I made a poor choice of black images. The are difficult to see but I really like the background.

Stained Kraft resist techniques

This paper is much fun! Love the look. I am in love with distress!

Watercoloring with re-inkers technique

Three tags I made from first lesson of day 4 from Tim Holtz's creative chemistry 101 class.

Layered misting technique

Tried this technique. Not my favorite. I can see using it occasionally. My hands are very stained because I had to modify technique by using distress stain and some tattered angel spray. Too much prep and clean up for me.

Day 3 recap

I am in love withy new Tim techniques

Alcohol ink agates

Here is my demo. Whatcha think?

Archival resist 4

My favorite! I love Asian influences and I think even Tim might approve of this one!

Archival resist attempt two

I like the background better on this one however I don't like the foreground. Needed a bolder primary statement.

Archival resist tag

This is my first attempt and it's growing on me. I like the technique. I just struggled a bit with the slicker than usual surface with stamping on glossy surface.

Stamping with reflections techniques

So here is the third technique Tim Holtz taught tonight. The only one I could do tonight because I can finds glossy card stock !?!? This involved stamping on embossing folders and getting reverse images and then framing another stamp within the embossing folder! I cut a slit in the top of the folder for the tag. I am very happy with the end result. I'd love some feedback. Thanks

Day 2 tags Tim Holtz creative chemistry 101

Ta daaaa

Wrinkle free distress tag

This is tag #4? Very interesting cause I really didn't think it would turn out this interesting with my limited palette. However I think it turned out ok. I will try this again when I get some yellows oranges blues and purple

Another brushless watercolor

This one appears to have wicked a bit more but I did spray water onto stamped image after I stamped it. It is pretty and I did do edges in fired brick

Brushless watercolor

Tag #3 is posted. The was the third attempt at this technique. It would seem simple but several factors played in with water on stamp and poor stamping quality with a larger stamp. Anyhow the end result of attempt 3 is pretty and something I will try again

Distress and flick attempt 2

So here is my second tag I am finding that I am interested on lots of experimenting. Fun

Tag #1. Distress and flick

Ok I am limited with the number of distress colors I have. I obviously need to run to store tomorrow go a yellow and a blue. But this was a very interesting assignment

Day 2 project #1

Here is my before pic

Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 101

Ok so I found out on Sunday 3/18/2012 that Tim Holtz was offering a Creative Chemistry Class which runs 2 weeks starting 3/19/2012. I immediately signed up and was inspired. Even though the class is started doesn't mean that you can't join in. Anytime you enroll you will be entitled to all of the videos and download posted. I am going to be posting my class assignments for your giggles and inspiration. I am sure that Tim will not let me down!

Tag I made

I had such creative fun last might playing with my movers and shapers dies and with my alcohol inks. I think the tags are adorable but would live to hear some creative criticism
