It seems forever since I blogged, and I've made literally 20 projects in the last month, but I just haven't gotten around to blogging them...bad blogger!!! Mostly because I have been cleaning and purging my crafty cave, and it looks so awesome now...pics later. Anyway, here is a stencil binder to house my new Tim Holtz Mini Layering Stencils to go along with my larger one, using the new Lady Rose from Tim and Stamper's Anonymous. The Crafty Scrapper is carrying both binder sizes in the store if you interested in purchasing one.
|I misted manila tags cut to size, with Antique Linen Distress Spray Stain.|
|I added some stenciling with a few of the mini stencils using Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.|
|I added some stamping, and then used a Workable Fixative to hold all my Distress goodies in place. Normally, I would use Distress Micro Glaze, but since the area was bigger I used the spray.|
|I inked the binders with Aged Mahogany and stamped around them.|
|I stamped the images in Jet Black and heat emboss them using Clear Powder, and then attached the tags to the binder.|
|Then I water colored in the images with a Water Brush and Distress Markers, and followed with the sentiment and embellishments. I colored the Heirloom Roses with Alcohol Ink.|
That's it for today. Tomorrow, I am off to Houston for the International Art Materials Association annual show (NAMTA). I'll be demoing Ken Oliver's Color Burst in the Canvas Corp. Booth. I am so excited, and I'll try to snap photos for my Facebook Page, but you all know how bad I am at doing that...yikes...I will try. Thanks for all the support and encouragement everyone!!!
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
