Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2016 - March

Today is full of possibilities...

happy easter! thinking about what today means to me…renewal and possibilities come to mind.  so, when i made time to play today i was guided by those thoughts...

i played with the distress crayons and a technique that wendy vecchi showed me, here is a tutorial on her blog…i inked a tag with archival inks in watering can and sky blue to start...

i used the tim holtz doily #2 die and his tissue wrap to create my doily…so cute!! i adhered it with the matte collage medium and the distress collage brush in a hashtag motion to create texture. then added vintage photo, black soot, and hickory smoke crayons and smudged away with my finger…then lightly (super lightly, or you will wipe it all away!) with a baby wipe i removed more crayon just from the raised portions of the doily.  

i stamped the flowers from tim's wildflower set in archival jet black ink.  the sentiment is from small talk.  once i adhered the saying with more matte collage medium  (under and over the stickers) i used black soot and picket fence crayon over the edges...

i added a gum drop to the new charmed..inking the gumdrop with mushroom then gold alcohol inks.  the charmed is painted first with iced spruce paint then the gold alcohol ink and finally mushroom…because i can't leave well enough alone…

the tag was layered over a silver kraft core base that i roughed up with steel wool and added smudged black soot crayon to. then a cute lil bow of pearl cotton and wrapped it around the whole thing and put onto a black card base.

i hope your day was filled with love and renewed hope…there are so many possibilities ahead!
