double sided tags, again.

I am really enjoying making these tags. This time I cut some heavy watercolour paper and painted it with various cosmic shimmer and H2O paints for the background colours. The paper isn't ideal for stamping so I have embossed some of it and coloured some with sakura pens to define it better. The stamps are mainly Tim Holtz, the dies are nestability lock and key, tim holtz for the multi colour flower, and the small car is a T.H. stamp on shrink plastic. Heart is grungeboard by........ah yes, that would be Tim Holtz again,lol. Even the punched flowers are foil coloured with alcohol inks by you know who.

Rockstar pages

These are the most recent pages for my Rockstar album. I just love the papers etc and decided to do the album even though none of us are musical. The large flowers and the flourishes are the new Tim Holtz sizzix dies. They are fabulous to use and will cut through mountboard easily. I have also cut fabric flowers and bought some felt to play with but not used much of it yet.

altered canvas

This is my first try at using acrylic paints and at altering a canvas. It was very different to my watercolours, but fun. I love the Tim Holtz stamps and stamped the car onto the canvas using black versafine. I then stamped the other images onto watercolour paper using distress inks. The clock "hands" are a back to front brad.

I recently got some gorgeous Tim Holtz stamps and decided to make some tags. I have made them double sided and strung them together with a binding ring, and hung them from a nail with a white tassel. They were the most fun thing I have ever made. I just loved playing with them.lol.

I have no idea how to show it here, but will try to find out and edit this accordingly. Big Thank you to Doreen for helping with this. Much appreciated Doreen, I knew it was something simple and it was so good of you to put me right.xx

more album pages

Chipboard album

I was given this Maya Road chipboard album a while ago but didn't really know what to do with it. I decided to distress paint it with pearl and gold craft paints and decorate it with Once Upon a Time papers. I have also used nestabilities, gems, Tim Holtz inks, dies and stamps (you probably guessed that I LOVE Tims style and products) paper cellar gem words and border strips plus a few more bits from my stash.

Happy Easter

Just a couple of spring cards to say Happy Easter everyone.
