I Know It's Early, But...

Halloween is my favorite holiday!  I was inspired by a hat I saw on Pinterest for this project, and it much easier than I thought it would be.  The paper strips are 2x6 inches. I glued them down with Ranger cut and paste, and once it was dry I sealed it with Matte finish Modge Podge.  The decorating was the really fun part because I got to break out my boxes of Halloween embellishments. Yes, boxes! Did mention that Halloween is my favorite holiday?

Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - March

This month I didn't really follow Tim's technique, but I did take the time to be creative. My tag includes layers of distress inks followed by stamps colored with distress markers, for the final layer I spritzed a chevron stencil.  As a final touch I added lace Hem Tape at the top of the tag and green yarn at the bottom. This didn't take long and was really simple.

MCT Monochromatic Color Challenge

I made this card for the My Creative Time challenge.  This time Emma challenged us  to make our card only using shades of one color.  I chose natural white, embossed the front of the card, and added diamond stickles to the embossing.  Then I added the Happy Birthday tag using pop dots.  I love that it was quick & easy, but looks beautiful. Enjoy!

It's A Good Day When…

I just love this picture! My sister sent it to me, and could not resist a little mixed media to display at my desk in work.  It's hard to see in the picture but there's even a flying monkey in the bird cage. For the yellow brick road I used a stencil, and modeling paste that I added yellow paint to. The shoes, hour glass, and hat (doesn't  really show in the pic) are Hallmark mini ornaments.  This project was as much fun to put together as it was hunting for the embellishments.

On to my Tim Holtz tag for March...
