...I know, don't all pass out... I am blogging for the third time this week! Yikes! Does this mean I am finally catching up on stuff I have been letting slip??? Hopefully!!! Anyways... here is today's offering: last month I did a demo weekend over at Daisy's Jewels in Coventry and was concentrating on all things Tim and Ranger. I used a big Size 12 Ranger Manila tag for the base of my creation....
Using Distress Paints: Scattered Straw, Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap, mixed and marbled for the background coverage, I then used Tim's Blossom Layering Stencil and added Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the stencil and around the edges of the tag to add a bit of vintageness.
The rose is made from Tim's Jumbo Tattered Florals die... this is a big beauty.. around 5" in size... wow! I added in a few leaves and some Winter Greens and then die cut the letters from Tim's new Alphabet Thinlets dies... A few bits of the new Mixed Media Thinlets in black card to add a bit of definition for the design and a few little butterflies from Tim's Watercolor stamp set, these were stamped onto card I coloured with Distress Paints and I added little twists of rusty wire for the bodies. Voila, one finished jumbo tag!
I shall away now... I have a tonne of things to do before my weekend trip to... Scotland! Oh yesh, my very first visit to teach in Bonnie Scotland at The Papeterie... I am really excited and so looking forward to visiting... I am rather keeping my fingers x'd that there will be a square sausage for breakfast one morning ;o)) *yes, always about the food!* Thanks for looking.. have a great evening! TTFN
