Tissue Wrap Flowers CC2C#10

This piece was made for a challenge on Linda's Studio L3 blog: http://www.studiol3.blogspot.com/2012/06/compendium-of-curiosities-2-challenge.html
Linda ask us to create artwork using Tim's  Compendium of Curiosities Vol. #2
technique on page 37; Tissue Wrap Flowers. Our sponsor for this week: http://www.zibbet.com/TheFunkieJunkie

I had a lot of fun creating this piece using a variety of Ranger products along with Stampers Anonymous stamps on this piece.

[The little white mark seen in the center of the flower is actually bling that didn't like my camera flash.]

Look out Petunia

Three spray inks were used on this tag before stamping Petunia, leaves and spider with Archival black ink. Watercolor crayons were used to color Petunia and the leaves.

You're the One

Mother and I played with our Dylusions stamps recently.  Each of us made 6 tags and worked on pages in our journals.
I used Dylusions stamps and Tim Holtz stamps on this tag, Memories Mist for the spray ink and Tim's distress powder on the sentiment. Watercolor crayons were used on the stamped girl and leaves. Archival black ink was used to ink all images on this tag.
The sentiment says; you're the one who makes me the way you see me. xo

Journal Page with Dylusions Stamps

This journal page was made using my new Dylusions stamps from Dyan Reaveley. I don't have any of her sprays yet but I'm having a good time playing with these stamps.
I started this page yesterday, and then added more stamped images today.
I bought more that will arrive this week from the club over on OWSE.
For the coloring I scribbled Lyra watercolor crayons over the watercolor journal page and then used a wet brush to color the background. All images were inked with Archival black.
The diamonds were made with a stencil from Crafter's Workshop and Liquitex modeling paste.
 Word stamps from Invoke Arts.

CC2C#8 Butterflies

Linda from Studio L3 chose page 62 in  Compendium of Curiosities II. as our challenge technique this week; Repurposed Packaging. The butterflies are my challenge.

I was inspired to use Nature Discovery #049 stamp set from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous for this challenge on the designer paper tag die cut. The dark brown seam binding used on this tag came from my vintage stash, it was sprayed wet and heat set to give a distress look. Distress ink and Archival inks were used on this tag. Embellishment added with glue dots.

Thanks for Looking and Have a Nice Day!

12 Tags of 2012 June; My Umbrella

Thanks Tim, I love all the details you used on your June tag of 12 Tags of 2012.

I loved that umbrella! This photo was taken at my grandparents home, they lived up the road from us.

I printed a copy on gloss paper. Color was added to my dress using Tim's nib with fired brick distress ink. 
I used Tim's stamp in the background from the stamp sheet Photo Studio #013, Tim's tiny tabs die cut for the tab, his word bands and the pen nib on this tag. To give the look of metal, I painted the tiny tab with silver dabber paint. Life Journey number 8 was added to the tab, I'm guessing that was my age.

Update: I asked my mother if she knew my age when she took this photo, she said I was around 8 years.
