I knew this month's Timmy Tag would not only be a challenge supplies wise but also subject wise.
I pondered a while and then jumped straight in by making my own tissue paper by stamping some music score on plain tissue paper with jet black StazOn. Quite amazed at how well it turned out. I Pritt sticked my tag and squished the tissue paper on and again pleased at how well it crumpled up and moved about.
Got some Autumn paints colours out (Avocado and Clay) and did the baby wipe thing - hmmm like that technique. Smooched the paint about and added Pitch Black to the edges. I highlighted with Crushed Olive and Spiced Marigold Distress Inks and stamped a few bare trees with black archival. Nearly forgot to spray with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearl Mist but so glad I didn't forget as it looks lovely and rich and sparkly.
The word "TIME" just grabbed me so I black glittered some of my WORDPLAY letters. (Don't think I have glittered this way since last year's 1st Christmas Tag - LOL).
I cut out the October month from my Lost and Found Paper Stash and attached with a swirly paper clip. Hmmm - then what next? I hunted around and found my last ceramic hedgehog button and sewed him on the bottom edge, added a few leaves, an acorn, some string strands and even a dangly metal leaf.
Then after the word "TIME", I just HAD to add the words "To Hibernate". Done!
I'm sure this would count for Simon Says Stamp and Show's current Rustification Challenge too as it is rather RUSTIC!
Just had to pop this in to ABAC too.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.
