Hello! Sharing a jumbo sized tag after a play with Tim Holtz’s layering stencils and Ranger’s texture paste. Sometimes I get distracted by all the things I want to use (techniques, colors, products, etc.) Once I settle on something specific, a project starts coming together. For me this time, limiting my color palette got me in the right direction. And then I spotted that sentiment stamp about limitations, right after I limited my choices. Meant to be.
Getting Ready for my Mixed Media Tag Workshop
Sorting, stacking, embossing… counting and recounting, making extras, etc.
The class consists of all these tags plus a very cool Idea-ology Worn Cover (also distressed).
Finally, today, everything is on its way… 73 pounds of supplies!! I am so grateful to Tim Holtz, Ranger, Advantus, StencilGirl Products, and Xyron for their support of my workshop. Notice how I used the washi tape to make my boxes stand out a bit in the warehouse? I used to be a meeting planner and I know all those cartons look alike at a trade show, so glad I was able to unify my 4 boxes a bit. Hopefully the tape will stand out in the eyes of whomever is moving them. Since washi has a light tack, I reinforced with clear packing tape.
StencilGirl Products sent me a few extra stencils, so if you’d like me to send these to you… just leave a comment below. Of course I’d love it if you sign up for my newsletter or follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, YouTube, or Twitter, but that’s all optional. I’ll pick a winner from the comment below in 5 days.. December 22nd.
