Evening all, i hope your all keeping well. Thank you so much for stopping by. x
After a productive and fun crafty day over at Neil's I have my Feb tag for Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2014 finished.
You can see Tim's tag and his tutorial on what he did if you follow the link above.
Like last month I am trying to put my own spin on things by using Decoart
paints and media products.I am also using the Tando-Creative media boards for my tags, they are made from chip board/grey board and are nice and thick so lend themselves brilliantly for paint and other media products.
I started by sealing my board with Faux Finish Medium and then wated down my base colours to create a wash, I applied both colours at the same time and spritzed with water to mix the colours together.
I used slate grey and vintage white.
Once dry I mixed some paint with some modelling paste to get a pink and a cream colour,using a pallet knife I applied the paste through the heart stencil from Tando-Creative.
The edge of the tag was swiped with black archival and the eyelet was added, The hearts when dry were given a coat of Triple Thick to give them a gloss finish.
The heart was cut from chip board and given a base coat of white and then a bright red painted over the top. Some One Step Crackle was added over the top and once it had cracked some raw umber paint rubbed into the cracks.
The chalk board was also cut from chip board, the edges were shaped with a craft knife and painted black.
I used the Tim Holtz stamp and stamped with Decoart's New Chalk Paint, I am absolutely loving this range of paint, More to come soon ;-)
I also very lightly rubbed some paint across the edges of the square just to bring out the detail.
The arrow and 14 are from Tim Holtz and finish of the tag.
This was a very weird tag for me, I really like each individual piece and how they turned out, I'm just not sure I like it as a whole, It might just be because this is really not my style ;)
But it's good to be challenged and if I want to do the 12 Tags this year I need to do them all lol.
Thank you for stopping by xx
I would like to add this to the Tim Holtz tag share.
