***This tag won on Tim's blog! So excited to win again, I just had to share!***
Are you familiar with Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of the Year? Every month, he creates a tag on the 1st of each month, using lots of his products, while teaching you techniques with lots of step out pictures and wonderful instructions. You can find them here on his blog, and the August tag is here.
Well, lots of laundry to get done, and what better way to stay on top of it is to hang out down here, where my studio happens to be. What luck! I can do both! ... it's been done before!
First, a load of laundry in the machine. Time to get working on my tag ...
Using Tim's dies, I taped each word die to the manilla tag and cut it out. I used the Precision Base Plate on the bottom (in place of the bottom cutting pad), and ran it through my Big Shot. Just to be safe, I reversed and rolled it through a 2nd time. Out it came, perfect! Time to lay this baby out!
On a 2nd manilla tag, I needed to collage some papers using Ranger's Studio Matte Multi Medium.
I used some Bazzill's Newsprint paper I picked up while I was in England. This paper is very cool ... almost like real newsprint!
The two tags were adhered together with Multi Matte Medium, and then, a coat was also spread on top to seal everything together.
