Day 5 Of 12 Tags

2:12 a.m. and I am up again with a sick son, so I was able to see Tim's Tag 5 right after he uploaded it. All I can say is WOW!!! This tag does not look like Tim to me at all. The techniques are for sure, but the end product does not. I think he went out on a limb with this, and I am so loving it! The red screams look at me, and the simpleness of the wreath is perfect for the extra rich backdrop. This one is now my favorite! LOL!!! I am loving that he is doing extra projects to give us even more ideas. He and Mario are really going the extra mile, especially with all the bad weather they are experiencing controlling and the in's and out's of internet connection. What a team!

I have posted a few pictures of the process of my background. I wish with all my heart that I could take this background and magically transform it into a huge slab of granite for my kitchen!!! WOW! The color and swirl patterns that these three alcohol inks that I used (cranberry, slate, red pepper) were entrancing! I just sat there watching the patterns form...it was therapeutic. I know I am strange, but it is just this doesn't happen very often while I am crafting unless I am painting on canvas. It is so abstract and you can stare at it for long periods and see so much. I didn't have the type of transparency Tim used so I used regular transparency for the computer. I used both the Christmas words and Music stamps from the Reflection's line. I do have the die for the wreath, but I chose to do it with Wendy Vecci's Art Parts Modeling Film instead of grunge paper. I wanted stark white against the bold background and this fit the bill, plus I could mold the leaves with a touch of heat. This is cool stuff, and I can't wait to do something really big with it.

  1. Wowzer! You've made one of the best tags that I've seen so far. Your wreath is so beautiful and you mastered that technique. So envious of you having the reflection stamps - I had to use swirls. Love that you matched it with music too.
