12 Tags Of 2016 Remix - July

Hello everyone! Again, I'm so sorry for being away. I've been busy with the fam, and I was so fortunate to be able to see Tim and Mario recently, while they were working at The Crafty Scrapper. It was a fabulous time, and so great to see my friends!!! Now I'm back at it, and gearing up for my holiday classes, and I've finally made some time to do my Tim tag for July, for the 2016 Tag Remix. Oh what fun it was to make!!! I am IN LOVE with the new Crazy Dogs!!!  I am also in love with the two techniques Tim combined to come up with the tag (My July, 2015 and April, 2015 tags here.), and how he switched things up with the direction of the word cool!
There was lots of die cutting, and I even used a few of Tim's new Sizzix Thinlets...Tropical and Vacation Words in Script. Distress Water Color Cardstock cut very well with the Thinlets.
After I stamped the new Crazy Dog from Stamper's Anonymous, in Jet Black Archival, I started water coloring in the dog and background as per Tim's instructions, and then I water colored in all the rest of the die cut pieces. I colored the metal flowers with Tim's new Alcohol Ink from Ranger. Once everything was dry, I sewed, adhered, and then added some Glossy Accents on a few things. I used the Idea-ology Stars for the centers of the flowers as well.
Thank you Tim for inspiring us, and keeping the techniques fresh in our mind! I'll be back again soon. Thanks for looking everyone!!!


I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
