Phew. Five days in a row of blogging. Sick of me, yet? ;)
Here's tag #3 from Mr. Holtz:
I was lucky enough to discover a pack of glossy cardstock in my stash (the background is alcohol inks on glossy cardstock to create a plaid). I was worried that I didn't have any, but lady luck stepped in! And some of the details:
Hammered brads are always so cool and grungy looking. I tried to ding the washer a few times as well.
As usual, I didn't have all the supplies Tim used. So, I used thin black ribbon instead of twine and a Type Charm (which is from the Tim Holtz line).
Extreme close up (larger than life) on the jump ring. It was gold and I tinted it to a more coppery color with alcohol inks!
Okay, a confession: I may have gone to the Ink Pad to drop off some class samples and ended up buying some Tim Holtz stamps while I was there. Maybe. In any case, that stamp is a version of one of my favorite Einstein quotes: “Knowledge is limited; but imagination encircles the world.”
But, wait! There's more! Here are some recent art journal entries:
Underneath that tree is buried a secret:
This horrible, ugly, terrible girl thing. Ick! She's buried under that tree. I just hated her so much that I painted over her and started again. But I wanted to share it here because I think it's important to share the mistakes and the successes, you know?
There's something so zen and lovely about cutting into that soft rubber and creating an image.
Thanks for stopping by!
