Inspiration Wednesday - Week 17

This week Donna had us using stencils and modeling past.

Since I didn't have a stencil with circles I decided to make my own. I used the circle shape cutter I purchased years ago from Creative Memories, and some circle punches I had. It took longer than I thought it would but was well worth it.

I love the way the layers turned out each one shows just enough to be noticed.

Thank you Donna Downey for the inspiration. I am so going to use this technique on a large canvas.

Inspiration Wednesday - Week 16

I wasn't quite sure about this weeks technique. It's been a very busy week, but I didn't want to fall behind.

Donna used fabric for her pages, but the fabric I had just wasn't cutting it for  me. I did find some wrapping paper that I had in my stash. So I got the first layer down, but was not impressed.

Next I had to find a silhouette since I did not have any in my stencil collection. I went to the internet looking for something I could make. I chose Tinkerbelle. Probably because it's 60 days until my next trip to Disney World. At this time of the year I always have Disney on my mind.  It's what keeps me sane.  For one week the world consists of a place where nothing goes sideways.  Anyway, I was happy with Tink.

I added paint Donna's stamps and flowers made using a stencil and modeling paste.  When they were dry I added clear stickles, because if have Tink you have to have bling, and guess what?

It made me happy!

Thank you Donna for another Inspiration Wednesday!

Tim Holtz Tags of 2015 - August

This months tag was all about the background. I don't have the word dies that Tim used, but I do have his Sizzix Mixed Media die set. This is the first time I've used them, but it will not be the last. These dies are fabulous.

I followed Tim's technique for creating the background, but I did leave more color on the tag than he did. What can I say I love color! I love the way it turned out, and will definitely be using this technique again. Hmm maybe a canvas....

Here's a close up.
