I am sitting in my bedroom with the doors shut, TV off, no distractions whatsoever writing tutorials on some upcoming projects! If I had had some chain and a lock, I would probably try to bolt myself to the chair! I would also probably find a way to pick the lock and mosey back to my studio to craft...I'm at my deadline now for THREE projects and its time to sit down and try to make out what exactly I did from the notes and measurements I scribbled along the way! God Help Me! So I decided to blog! LOL!
Well, I promised didn't I! That's the way I think about it anyway! I will get back to the tutorials in a second. But first I wanted to share one of the projects I mentioned this weekend. You know I have to give you some background information. I just can't get to the facts and be done with it! Oh No! Hahaha! You may have read in past posts that the way I like to work is to have multiple projects going on at once. To me, by having several projects to work on helps me keep my interest level in check. When I'm working on a bigger or more complicated project, I love to do smaller faster ones in between. Hence, tags baby! I was a tag making fool this weekend! They are so much fun to make and such a wonderful release for me. I hope you give it a try...
So, for the next few nights I wanted to share some tags I made. I also have a couple of Inspiration Emporium DT challenges to show you too. But let's start with one of the tags tonight. A Dylusions Tag....
I had a ton of fun making this simple tag! I hope you like it...
Toadstool Cottages In A Woodland...See I'm getting all Dylusional! LOL!
Supplies I used for this tag may be found at Inspiration Emporium here in the US and Art From The Heart in the UK.
The first thing I did was to spray the tag with puddles of Cut Grass and Melted Chocolate spray inks. Next, I used the background trees stamp and stamped them randomly on the inked tag. I used the pine tree spray stamp and stamped around the edges. I then used Vintage Photo with the same stamp and stamped over the pine branches. Next, I applied the Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE) on top of the vintage photo ink and melted it.
I then took the Toadstool Houses stamps and stamped them onto Ranger Manilla cardstock. I colored them and cut them out. I then used the UTEE once again and embossed the three houses and adhered them to the center of the tag.
I once again used the pine tree stamp and stamped out a cluster of the pine branches on Ranger Manilla cardstock and colored and cut those out. I then applied those with a few dimensional pieces to the edges of the tag.
Last, I inked the Festive Foliage metal pieces and my hands mind you with The Cranberry Alcohol ink and applied them to the tag....That's it!
So....Toadstool Cottages In A Woodland
Thank You for stopping by! I have a Fall Tim Tag for you tomorrow!
Have an awesome night!
