Inspiration Wednesday - Week 24

Wow! I can't believe there's only one more Inspiration Wednesday left in the year.

For these pages I used Pan Pastels. Considering that I have a limited number of colors, and it's the first time using them it turned out better than expected.

Bye for now!

Tim Holtz Tags of 2016 - November

This month Tim paired the remnant rub resist and dimensional coloring techniques.

I love the fact that Tim's rub ons resist ink. When you use them you never have to worry that they won't show up because you used a dark ink or stain. I just sprayed my stains onto the tag after applying them, and lightly wiped the excess ink.

For the leaf I used distress markers and a water brush to blend the colors.

Inspiration Wednesday - Week 23

Donna took a poll asking what media we would like to see her manipulate for this week's pages.  aluminum foil got the most votes.

We used both the positive and negative pieces of a chipboard design, covered the pages in foil and painted them.  After drying the pages I sanded them so that the foil showed through in areas.  When I started these pages I wasn't sure about the technique but as it turns out I'm really happy with the finished pages.

Inspiration Wednesday - Week 22

This is week three of using what we hoard, and I must say that these pages are some of my favorites. This weeks item was used baby wipes. Unlike Donna I don't keep my baby wipes after removing the glaze from my projects, so I started by picking through the trash can in my craft room. Luckily I hadn't emptied it, and I hit the jackpot.
