It is Anne’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your creations over the past month. It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us :-)
Anne has used Tim Holtz’s new Vignette Shrine along with the fabulous Arthur Owl Colorize Thinlits Die Set to create a Halloween display that lights up, and it has lots of doodles dotted about, if you know where to look for them! “
Andrea reached for supplies from two of her favorite Doodling Divas, Dina Wakley and Jane Davenport, to make her tag. She used Jane’s Fluent Fantastic stamp set along with Dina’s Just Words collage paper. The background dots were made with My Favorite Things’ Wonky Dots stencil.
Anna-Karin made a tag this week, using the Simon Says Stamp Doodle Background stamp. It was combined with doodling on die cuts. The hearts are die cut with the SSS Windows To My Heart die and colored with Tombow Dual Brush Markers.
Barbara is completely out of her comfort zone! She’s not good at drawing … not even doodling! To stay in the theme, she used a set of Tim Holtz stamps, Scribbles and spirals, as the background for her cards. This background perfectly matches with the Snarky Cat Halloween set! To complete her project she used the Spiderweb die and Distress inks pads.
Cheiron created a set of ATCs using the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Mini Media Marks stamps, which helped her get the look of hand drawn doodles. She combined Distress Inks, Oxides and Paints including the new Crackling Campfire to make her marks. She stamped the cards with Black Soot Archival Ink and added some Big Chat word stickers to finish her project.
Kath created an Art Journal page using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Doodle Layering Stencil to decorate the background and featuring the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Snarky Cats Halloween who have enrolled for a lesson at the Sketched Manor Flying School but it doesn’t seem to be going too well. She added Idea-ology Halloween Trim Tape and Small Talk Snarky Stickers
Macarena doodled the entire butterfly through the Visible Image Buterfly Ink stencil and then played with the shading inside. She also stamped the Simon Says Stamp Pretty Peonies Background on the base and a fragment of Tim Holtz Faded Type on the top of the butterfly.
Maura cracked open her Dina Wakely White Media Journal, applied some Daniel Smith watercolors like Permanent Orange and Quinacridone Pink, stamped on some flowers with Simon Says Stamp Anna’s Flowers, and then doodled away.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Doodle Art 2 on the background and decorated it with Tim Holtz Sizzix Media Marks Thinlits and Prima Marketing Rusty Knobs Finnabair Mechanicals.
Sandra isn’t much of a doodler, but she gave it her best with this Halloween card, she started with Typeset Collage paper and used Liquid Acrylic Paint to give the background color and added the Spider Web die set and doodled on it with White Gelly Roll Pen. She gave the Halloween Paper Doll a new look with a black Zig pen.
Zoey used Tim Holtz Typeset Collage Paper and a couple of Distress Paint to color her background. Then she used Fineline 20 GAUGE APPLICATOR with some black paint inside to scribble words and doodle to add more interest to the background. She also create a little cluster with Tim Holtz Idea-ology BOTANICAL Layers TH93554 and a Tim Holtz Photobooth image.
