Whoop Whoop! I am now caught up with my 12 Tags of 2016. And once again I did not have most of the products Tim Holtz used.
I almost caved and purchased some Yupo paper. I still might, but I really wanted to make all the tags with the products I have on hand.
Instead, I focused on the overall design and techniques he used.
Read on to learn more about my September tag.
12 Tags of 2016-September
- Surfaces: Shipping Tag and Glossy Paper
- Tools: Stamps and Stencils
- Coloring Mediums: Paint, Alcohol Ink, Black Ink and Sharpie
- Other: Blending Solution, Photo Corners, Sentiment and Embellishments
|Create background using shipping tag. Apply two to three colors of paint to craft mat. Spray with water and drag tag through color.|
|Cut glossy paper to fit tag. Color with alcohol ink. Drip blending solution onto glossy paper to create some texture.|
|Drip additional color onto paper. Use blending solution to get color to move around.|
|Stamp image onto glossy paper. You will need to use an oil based ink for this step. I used VersaFine black ink.|
|Stamp sentiment onto bottom of shipping tag. Outline tag with Sharpie.|
|I ended up doing a little stencil work on my image. Again you will need to use an oil based ink for this step. Layer image onto tag using photo corners.|
|Add the rest of your sentiment and embellishments.|
Until next time......Happy Moodling,
