12 Tags of 2013 April

I enjoyed seeing Tim's tag for April!

I'm late with this month's tag. 
I made the base of the tag weeks ago using TH supplies from my stash.
 Last week I purchased my first bottle of Distress Paint; Broken China and used it on the metal pieces of tag today. 
Plastic portion of butterfly was made with clear plastic from Tim's packages and heat set. 

Ranger/ Tim Holtz supplies minus the two lock washers were used on this tag.

Finger Painting Journal Page

This was my tutorial for April 9th over on Crafting with OWSE for 
Technique Tuesday,

Sharing what I made from custom made paper in a jar with Golden paints, a little H20's and die cuts.
Many of the supplies used in this tutorial can be found here:

The paper perfect was spread over my journal page with a pallet knife and evenly spread over plastic film for a small sheet of perfect paper.
It took over night on the journal page to dry, but it's now three days later and the paper on plastic film is still moist in the middle. With humidity in the air it's taking longer to dry. 

Impatiently waiting, on the fourth day, I gently started peeling the handmade paper off the plastic film and was able to remove the paper with just a few tears. I don't think this will be a problem when I die cut three mini tattered flowers. The handmade paper looks rough on top and smooth on bottom. 

First I'll show you the die cut flowers. I started painting with H20's and realized the color wasn't dark enough for the project I had planned to do with the journal page, so I finger painted all the flowers with Golden liquid Quinacridone Magenta paint over the H20's. The color is beautiful with the highlights of the H20's underneath. 

The journal page was painted with Golden gesso over the perfect paper and then finger painted with Golden paint mixed with Golden Matte Medium. 
I used Golden liquid paints in these colors; Ultramarine blue, Yellow ochre, Jenkins green, Turquois (Phthalo), Quinacridone Magenta fluid acrylic paint, and Golden Colbalt teal acrylic paint. 
[Using the matte medium extends the color and decreases the gloss.] 
After the paint dried on journal page, the flowers were applied using glue n' seal.
Golden Jenkins green was used with an old credit card to make stems for flowers.  
Inspire from Tim Holtz word play alphabet die was die cut with chipboard and then painted with Golden Colbalt Teal acrylic paint. I used a foam applicator with vintage distress ink to grunge edges of each letter before applying to page.
I wish you could feel the texture on this page. It's rough from the handmade paper but soft from the paint! 
I love this page! 
If you have one of those Craft scrubbie this is the time to use it, all the paint came off my fingers with just a little bit of liquid soap.

Finished page: 6 3/4" x 10"

Gelli Printing Again

Bloggers, I'll share the results from a page I made today using my Gelli Arts Printing Plate with die cuts from Silhouette digital craft cutter and Sizzix.
Previous paints were on the plate before adding the blue acrylic paint with die cuts. This is a transfer with mono printing all on one page. 
I love the surprising results. 
I've collected all the pages made with my Gelli Plate to make into a journal. This one might be left as is or used as a cover page. 

Thanks for Looking and have a nice day.

Be Adorable Tag

Hi there - this is a quick tag using three adorable images from plate 918

A 6 x 6" diamond stencil was used with Dylusions spray ink on a manila tag. While still wet I let some of the spray ink run. Set this aside to dry. Stamp the Be Adorable image with Memento black on white card stock, trim close, use distress ink to frame piece. Apply MiracleTape to Be Adorable and then adhere to tag. Stamp Boy in Cape with Memento black on white paper, cut close. Color image with Copic Markers. Color cut edges around Boy in Cape with black marker. Be careful not to add any color to front. Apply tiny 3-D foam dots to back of Boy in Cape image and then adhere to tag. InkChevron Banner  image with Memento black ink and stamp on tag.  Add two line stickers down left side of tag. Spray seam binding with Dylusions, wrinkle up, set aside to dry. Apply to tag.

Gelli Printing Paper

I bought my 8 x 10 inch Gelli Printing Plate after seeing how much fun I had with the gelatin plate. This is one of my favorite pages made April 1st, this is the last page of the day, it had paints left on the printing plate with white as a last color and this what I got. I can't wait to do something with it.

BTW, if you have a Tuesday Morning near by they have white paper 75 sheets for $2.49. It is fabulous for Gelli Printing and such a nice smooth finish. I picked up another package today. They still had a bunch in Stillwater, Ok.
