12 Tags of 2014 June Tag... Yay it's not the end of the month and my June tag is completed!
This month Tim did a watercolor mono print using the distress minis and stencils ... you gotta see this... it is so cool http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2014-june/.
Okay confession time ... I was highly upset that I could not get a hold of the French Flight Framelit... it was sold out and/or had not come in yet in a few of the places I tried. Anyway I improvised ... I had to cut those butterflies out free hand ... OMG ... talk about embracing imperfection. Okay I'm over it ( I WANT the framelit... I shall get that framelit) !!!
At first I was disappointed with my tag ( not over the framelit issue I guess) ... but as I watched the process unfold, I was very excited about it. Those stencils are fun. Check out Tim's blog for the links to some other designers these projects are amazing http://timholtz.com/more-distress-minis-to-love/; what these ladies did with these minis ... so cool !!
Okay I only own set #3 and set #1 of the distress minis :( ... if you check Tim's blog this week they were doing a giveaway... you know I commented on every blog trying for a chance to win those babies. Fortunately I have stencils eight of them I think ... hehehe... you know how I am about my Tim toys. I chose to use my stars ... wow this looks so amazing when it dries ( it looked disappointing at first ); the little minis just work so well for this technique. I love the colors I used spiced marmalade, peacock feathers, picked raspberry and mustard seed. And using them to colorize the ribbon just put the icing on the cake for me... the colors are so yummy. Tim showed us how to do the
Paula bow... it's gorgeous... well mine doesn't look like Paula's yet but close ... always wondered how she did those. I so love that every month I'm learning new skills; practicing some previously learned ones and experimenting. More importantly my "investment" in Tim product is paying off in a fabulous way !
Well that's it for now ... maybe tomorrow I'll complete some other challenges !
