Inspiration Wednesday - Week 6

Modeling paste, tags, and super heavy gesso.  Theses were some of the ingredients for this weeks journal page.

I'm  loving my poppies, and the tags with their strings attached made lots of texture.

I have to say thank you Donna Downey you have forced me out of my comfort zone.

Inspiration Wednesday Week 5

This week I learned when Donna gets an idea in the middle of the night it's going to be wild.  This project took me about 5 days working one layer at a time to allow for drying.  What an experience!

Before I could start I had to cut my own stencil. Another learning experience. I used the Tim Holtz Layered Butterfly die. I love this die and got to use both the positive and negative cuts.

The orange butterfly is actually two butterflies sandwiched with the center inclusion page in-between.   Using the negative from from die cut I used modeling paste to make two butterflies.

The purple butterfly was made using the positive die cut as a mask that I removed after covering both pages with modeling paste.

For the grass I used an old green blouse from my closet. This was good because I should clean the closet.  After cutting it into strips I attached the fabric using more modeling paste.  Then, you guessed it,  more modeling paste on top.

Painting, stamping and woo hoo it's done!  I love the way it turned out!

Tim Holtz Tags of 2015 - March

It's official March is here.

I am notorious for never knowing the date, but I know when it's the first of the month because there's a new Tim Holtz tag on his blog.

As always Tim includes a technique I've never tried.  This month it was covering modeling paste with embossing powder. I've used both of these products, but never together. I must say I will be using this technique again.  Thank you Tim for a fun tag

Inspiration Wednesday Week 4

I'm finally getting a chance to post our project for Week 4 of Donna Downey's class.  It was another great challenge. Lots of modeling paste & room for our own imaginations. I've been having so much fun with these techniques I can't wait to get started on Week 5. I previewed the video last night and it's going to be awesome!
