Inspiration Wednesday - Week 15

As this weeks project was coming together I was not at all impressed with it, but as I added each layer it got better.  It's amazing what a layer of modeling paste and some glazing can do! I must say that I am happy with the final result.

Tim Holtz Tags of 2015 - July

This month's Tim tag had a patriotic theme.  Well, not much of that in my stash so I used the Crazy Birds stamps, because I just love these guys.  I don't know why, but every time I see them I think of the Abbott & Costello doing "Who's On First".

After stamping and coloring the birds with Distress Markers I applied Distress Micro-Glaze over the birds and painted the whole tag using Hickory Smoke.  It's the first time I used these new products. The micro-glaze made the birds resist the ink, and I love the new ink color.   I can see these new products getting often.

Thanks Tim for another fun tag!

Inspiration Wednesday - Week 14

This is going to be a quick post since I was on vacation and am now playing catch-up on my blog posts.

This week's project used multiple layers starting with tissue paper and a double layer of stenciling with modeling paste. Donna's added challenge was that it had to include something that makes me laugh.

My choice was King Julian from the movie Madagascar. That movie made me laugh out loud. Especially King Julian doing his version of "I Like to Move It" To this day whenever I see him or hear the song it still makes me laugh.
