GM-5 Art is a Shadow


Linda over on Studio L3 posted the info on Monday to use one of Tim's techniques for Grungy Monday. This week we are doing 2008 Technique Challenge: http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2008/05/may-technique-1.html

"Art is a  Shadow of what a person is thinking" is what the stamped image says inside the ornate plate.
I have included one of the technique I have come up with on this tag. I started out doing this technique on ATC over the last week.. This is my first tag using Artists' Oil Crayons with Adirondack Pearl Dabber Paint.
Here is the first step in making this tag:                                

Apply two colors of Artists' Neopastel Oil Crayons on tag. After applying crayons, place a tissue on your finger and rub the colors to a smooth finish, and then add a thin layer of Adirondack Metallic Pearl Dabber over the oil pastel crayons. Let dry. Ink script from Tim's Papillon stamp with Archival black ink. Important: heat set to dry.
Cut opening into foam and tag front using ruler and craft knife. Adhere tag to foam die cut. Adhere another die cut tag to foam as a backing to adhere butterfly. Die cut butterfly with grungeboard and then paint with black dabber paint.  Adhere butterfly with Studio multi-medium matte to base of square opening.
Stamp script with Archival black ink and adhere behind Ornate plate with Studio multi-medium matte as an adhesive. Set ornate plate to front on tag with brads. Add fibers.

This is an Altered Ribbon Spool I made for a challenge on Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium.
The flower was made using TH tattered floral die and Mr. Coffee filters, the leaf die from Quikutz and the box from an empty ribbon spool covered with scrapbook paper. It's just a little over 3 inches wide.

Grundy Monday #3

Over on Studio L3 we celebrate Tim Holtz style by sharing a challenge each week. This week we are using Ranger Adirondack Color Wash. This week Robyn from Outlaw Woman Scrapbook Emporium is the sponsor.

The tag was made using the challenge product sprayed over the bodice of the dress form, inked with Archival black and stamped with script over the Cranberry Color Wash. Inkssentials Enamel Accents black was used on top and base of dress form die cut. To add reinforcement another tag was adhered to back of tag using Zip Dry. Foam pad applicator was used with Distress worn lipstick around edges of tag. Net tooling was gathered to waist of dress form using Zip Dry. Ribbon was wrapped and tied to waist.  The dress form die cut was adhered to scrapbook paper. Sentiment was inked with Ranger's Archival black and then highlighted with Distress tattered rose. Elastic was sprayed with a mixture of reinker, perfect pearls and applied to tag.
I looked around my stash and couldn't find anything to add to this tag. So I'm playing it safe this week with the motto: less is more.
Supplies used on this tag:
Stamps: Dawn houser by Inkadinkado
Archival ink: Ranger
Distress inks: Tim Holtz
Inkssentails Enamel accents: Ranger
Scrapbook paper: K and Co.

Grungy Monday 2

Studio L3 is celebrating Tim's style by sharing a challenge each week. This week we are doing a virtual tour from Ranger Ink website. Click here to view Tim's video on this challenge:
and then go over on Studio L3 and see other artist with their challenges.


Tim's stamps, die cut tag, die cut scrollwork, die cut bird from electronic machine, distress inks, archival ink. Can you guess what the base of the tag is made from? We were cleaning out Mil's house after she passed away I found a small stack of time sheet cards. Some have punched holes others have no holes.

Dress Form



I made this tag using Tim's new dress form die. I used corragated cardboard that had a slick finish on the outside, I pulled the slick finish off and kept some of the white paper beneath to add texture to the die cut tag. The tag was inked with a variety of distress inks. And then added clear rock candy distress stickles to paper side of tag. I cut one white matte coat dress form and one grey dress form from cardboard. I rubbed Viva Inka-Gold on base and top of dress form. The white dress form piece was cut and then inked with distress stains and distress inks. I added Tim's paper tape to waist. I added a variety of Ranger products to button until I got the color I liked. Mini-brads were used to attach the button to the tag. A piece of real pattern was applied to tag. The spool of thread was cut with cardboard and left the natural color. I added thread and needle to the spool. I used mini-mister bottle of perfect pearls and distress ink spray on elastic for ribbon.
Lots of Ranger and Tim Holtz products were used on ths tag.
