Happy New Year Everyone! Hello 2016 and to a fresh, new start. Are you a resolutions person? I've made a few, ones that I hope to accomplish. I made goals that weren't too grand so I have more of a chance to succeed! I have them written in my planner so I can refer to them often. One of them is to keep up with my planner more, including decorating so I'm going to join The Planner Society starting this month if my subscription goes through. I will share more as time goes on. My planner for this year is a Webster's Pages A5 Color Crush Planner. The A5 size is so much better for me than last years personal sized planner - more room for decorating!!
I am so happy to be staying on with the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Design Team for another term! I love creating mixed media projects with whatever I have in my stash - it's quite freeing! This month's theme is "Time Flies".
I created a tag for this month's project - I so love making tags!! I used Tim Holtz Clockwork layering stencil, lots of distress inks and watch parts to tie in with this month's theme. Here's my tag...
I started by blending several distress inks onto a manila tag. I splattered water on the inks to give it a marbled look. Then I applied Rangers Texture Paste through Tim Holtz Clockwork Layering Stencil. Once dry I added some watch parts, sequins and distress colored gauze as the focal point. The sentiment was typed on my vintage typewriter and inked with Blueprint Sketch distress ink and the crinkle ribbon was colored with Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio distress markers. Here's a few more close ups...
These watch pieces are from the Brimfield Fair. A coworker of mine thought of me when she was there and scooped them up for me. Hey, there's another resolution - Get to the Brimfield Fair this year!! The cheesecloth was colored with Distress Spray Stains. All products are listed below except for the Ground Expresso Ink that I couldn't get to link up for some reason.
Our sponsor and quest artist for this month is the fabulous Cheryl Boglioli. I was lucky enough to take a class with her a few years back. She is a great teacher and mixed media artist and I'm so glad she's joining us this month.
Cheryl is generously offering a prize this month full of products from companies that she works with.
