This is Sabrina’s last week in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of yout fabulous creations! It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us!
Andrea made a mini tag book using a With Love tag die by Sugarpea Designs. She cut the tags out of a page she’d colored with an 8×10″ Gel Printing Plate and some of her favorite Dina Wakley acrylic paint such as Turquoise, Lime, and Lemon.
Anna-Karin made two tags this week and each tag also has two smaller tags. The big tags were die cut with Tim Holtz’s Stacked Tags set, the smallest ones with his Gift Tags set. The tags with the sentiments were made using the We R Memory Keeper’s Angle Corner Chomper tool.
Barbara had much fun this week playing with an Etcetera tag! The Professor stamp set by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous is the focal point of this project together with Timekeeper Bigz die by Sizzix Tim Holtz. She has surrounded them with a lot of gears painted with Distress Oxides spray and Prima Marketing Firebird Art Alchemy Metallique Wax.
Cheiron created a Medium Etcetera Tag using a background made of new colors of Distress Oxide Sprays over a layer of Black Soot Distress Stain. She used a Stencil Chip, a Etcetera Pinked Trims, and lots Baubles colored with various Alcohol Inks. She finished it with a Quote Chip and some Clippings Stickers.
Emma‘s etcetera tag was inspired by numbers and calculations and she created this project using a combination of Tim Holtz stamps, Eclectic Adverts and Inventor 7 and combined them with some idea-ology Stencil Chips to tell the story.
Kath decorated a canvas to look like an old stone wall, added Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Tags Thinlits covered with Ideao-logy Botanical Collage Paper, a Tim Holtz/Sizzix Large Stems die-cut flower and used Idea-ology Keepsakes Ephemera to decorate.
Maura made a tag book filled with memories from a trip to France a few years ago. She used the Ranger Dylusions #10 Mixed Media Tags, Inky Antics Bold Borders stamps, Seth Apter’s Impression Obsession Phresh Phrases, and lots of Daniel Smith Watercolor like Opera Pink and Phthalo Turquoise.
Sandra went for a Heavystock tag and made a stamping collage using the Dare to Dream stamp set along with a stamp from Random Quotes. To give her tag some color she used Dylusions Oxide Spray in Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade and Dylusions Spray Lemon Zest.
Zoey is obsessed with making tags , she used Prima Marketing Oil Pastels Crayons and Tim Holtz Rubber Stamp MY SOUL Stampers Anonymous U1-2844 to create the background and then she used Tim Holtz paper dolls and Tim Holtz Stickers to decorate it!
