I seriously am having a hard time believing it's November...not to mention already the middle of it. The holidays are fast approaching...yikes! I've finished my Tim Holtz 2015 November tag, and several other projects while on a retreat last weekend with my friend Carolyn. Stay tuned for a lot more posts showing you the projects and their tutorials!!! Back to my tag here though...I just LOVE the Bird Crazy Stamp Set!!! They truly are so fun and versatile, and I've even altered the one I've used here. Gobble gobble!!!
|I always try to do the techniques that Tim has done on his tag, but I usually change up the color or images a bit. Here I stamped the Linen image in Fossilized Amber instead.|
|I also misted with Antique Linen, Twisted Citron, and Tumbled Glass. I wasn't sure I like the lighter look yet.|
|After inking with Ground Espresso and flicking water on it though, I ended up really liking the color of the background.|
|These Ranger Foil Sheets make any project better! Seriously addicting to use as well!|
|I colored him in, and a few accessories too. I also gave him that floppy, ugly, red, gobbler thing...;0)...made from a piece of Crinkle Ribbon and Festive Berries Distress Spray Stain.|
|I inked in each wing a different color, but then layered them into each other to form his big crazy tail. I also added a little tracing into my sentiment so I would stand out better, as well as some old Dresden Foil sunflowers.|
More about my weekend...
|I loaded up my car last Wednesday morning with about 95% of all the Christmas crafting goodies I have, and drove five hours to Milford, Texas, to go to Our House In Milford...a retreat center that my friend Carolyn twisted my arm about. So glad she did, because not only was it super fun, but I got a lot accomplished. It's an awesome place to stay, and not to mention eat!!! I think I gained 10 pounds!|
|I had two big tables for all my loot, but I took a lot of floor space too. Yikes! There is ample space for everyone, and I think it holds over 30 crafters!|
|Here's Carolyn...who also made gorgeous goodies at the retreat, and a bunch of them. She really inspires me!|
AND...here is a teaser for you about the next four blog posts coming up. I made all of these at the retreat, and I can't wait to show them to you! Soon.
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
