Inspiration Wednesday - Week 19

Donna went easy on us this week.  Except Donna's background was made using the craft paper she covers her table with. I trash mine at the end of each project so had to make the background.

I used spray inks in bright colors then sprayed the page with water to make the colors run.  Once they were dry I used Gel Medium to stick them to the pages, and added my stamps. Done!

Tim Holtz Tags of 2015 - September

This month really was a challenge for me.  Tim created the tag background with alcohol inks.

Since I don't use alcohol ink I decided to use distress inks.  For whatever reason I could not get a look I was satisfied with. After 3 attempts I decided to use my Sparkling H2O's. I've never used them before and they have been sitting on a shelf in my craft room for longer than I want to admit. Finally, a background I liked!

This was also the first time I used Tim's Frosted sheets. I love this product, and will be using it a lot more from now on.

Once it was done I must say I like the way it turned.  Thank you Tim! Bring on October!

Inspiration Wednesday - Week 18

This was my biggest challenge so far.  I do not consider myself a painter, so when I watched this weeks video I was not a happy camper. However, I am determined to try everything Donna Downey inspires the class with.  Looking forward to Week 19...
