It’s Ann’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 :-)

Ann made a card using Tim Holtz Flip Top Distress Paint for the background. I also used Dina Wakley Media Stamp Collaged GirlsTim Holtz Transparent Layers, and Palette Collage Paper

Andrea made all sorts of hand-drawn scribbly marks on her Dylusions Small Creative Journal page. She also used scraps from Dina Wakley’s Collage Sparks 2 as well as Dina’s Scribble Sticks, Darkroom Door’s Open Circles stamp, and AALL & Create’s Mix and Match washi tape.

Anna-Karin scribbled and made marks with pens, pencils, stamps and paint on this art journal page. The flowers were die cut with Simon Says Stamp Morning Blossom die and some of the background stamps come from Tim Holtz Mini Glitch and Ultimate Grunge.

Barbara created two tags using the stencils Brush Mark, Brush Hex and the stamp set Floral Trims by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous. She added Idea-ology Palette Collage Paper and Idea-ology Quote Chip Label to complete her project. She color the background with Ranger Distress Spray Stains and used the stencils with Embossing Glaze Powders. Barbara interpreted the theme by adding what is her mark for her, Distress Ink Walnut stain on all the edges and she also added some marks made with Uni-Ball Signo Gel White pen.

Cheiron created a mixed media tag using the new Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Brush Arch Layering stencil to make her marks. She added Alcohol Inks through her stencil onto Yupo paper and then added some stitching around the edges. She completed her tag by adding a Stacked Heart and sentiment from the Noteworthy stamp set.

Emma made her mark on this Size 8 Mixed Media Tag by using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Everyday Art Element Stencils. She applied Distress Oxide Inks through the stencils before embossing with Distress Glaze and completed the tag with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Media Marks die cuts to create the scribbles that sit underneath the Butterfly Adornment.

Kath used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Tiny Prints to create the background on her card, added marks using the Mini Brush Hex and Brush Mark Layering Stencils from Set 55 and Exquisite stamp set. She added a Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wildflower Stems 1 Thinlits die-cut, Note Quotes sentiment, Idea-ology Specimen Remnant Rubs and doodled a black line around the edges.

Macarena got inspired during the last Tim Holtz live and made a leftovers background using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles dies and Tim Holtz Field Notes stamps. For the main point she used Tim Holtz Sizzix Tailored dies. She made her mark by doodling inside the circles with Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix FOUNDRY 3D Embossing Folder on the background, and decorated it with scribble marks using Tim Holtz Sizzix MEDIA MARKS Thinlits Die and Tim Holtz Idea-ology BASEBOARDS WINDOW FRAMES

Zoey made her marks with a paint brush + she used Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Markings. She used the Vault paint Set 3, Set 2 e Set 5 to add color to the background and she used Tim Holtz Sizzix Silhouette Birds Thinlits Dies to create the stencil.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
