Busy week, finally got to work on this weeks challenge, I was going to do another tag but my muse had other ideas… I ended up tracing my hands and going with it. The first one with the blue bracelet has many layers as I kept changing my mind and then the colors weren’t right, and then they weren’t right again and yet again. But finally I ended up with a finished product but wasn’t as happy so I started playing around with a second (the circles) and in the end I really love how it turned out. I think I might have to do another one, I had fun.

I have been having so much fun playing with tags these last few days, and when I seen a post using the pocket stencils from Artistcellar that were just so beautiful I had to make some of my own. Click HERE for the post from Artistcellar. I LOVE these stencils, I hope they make some more word stencils

I didn’t have either of the main colors so I had to mix my own, so they might not be as true as what they should be.

Summer of Color: Week One

I decided I’d join in on the fun of Summer of Color 2014.Click HERE to learn more and maybe join in the fun.


Week One: 

Aqua Blue & Yellow
With a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Hot Pink

I used my Gelli Plate (which was a birthday gift last year from my best friend Boo, she’s the best of the best and not just because she gave me a gelli plate that was just the icing on the cake.) to color the tags, I tried hard to mix the colors as best  could, but no matter how hard you try not to mix the colors, there is one undeniable fact… Yellow and Blue Make Green 😉 lol
I used the gelli plate and colored three pieces of book  paper with the three different colors and then cut a bunch of hexagon shapes, added umbrella man, my favorite Tim Holtz creation you can use him for so very much. I colored some white fiber in the three colors as well.
I had fun and can’t wait to see what next weeks colors are going to be.

What is possible in art…

…Becomes thinkable in life.

For the first time I actually sat down and created a tag inspired by Tim Holtz 12 tags of the year… NOT that I haven’t been inspired many many times, but it always seemed to get put off for one thing or another…. Well this month I let nothing get in my way, and this evening I created 🙂

What is possible in art 12 tags

The inspiration was found on Tim’s blog HERE

Mine is quite different but still in the same field 🙂

The colors I used are Broken China, Dusty Concord and Mustard Seed. The stencil was a generic daisy

one I purchased at Wal-Mart (sadly none of my TH stencils would work – going to have to remedy that)
