12 Tags of 2016 - June
Topic: Multi-Technique

Look how early in the month I am getting the June tag done!

As you recall, Tim Holtz creates a tag every month for inspiration using his products. Throughout 2016 he is combining two old tutorials to be his own inspiration.

This month he combined these two tags:


And this is the tag he created:


Of course, I never have the same supplies to work with (well, a few here and there) so I just wing it with similar things from my studio.

Here are the steps I used to create my piece:

- Stamp white tissue paper with black archival ink in overall background print (used second-generation stamping to lighten it)

- Crinkle and smooth tissue paper

- Cut piece of white mat board

- Tint matte medium with vintage photo Distress Stain

- Use matte medium to adhere tissue to mat board

- Dry with heat gun

- Wipe over surface with anti-static bag to reduce tackiness

- Cut shape into covered board using a craft knife

- On white fabric use mini-Distress ink pads to create a subtle plaid (I used hickory smoke and ground espresso in one direction and fossilized amber and cracked pistashio in the other)

 

- Mist very lightly and dry with heat tool

- Use Xyron to adhere fabric to white cardstock

- Use Xyron to adhere this base to back of the cut-out piece

- Outline inside of cut-out with black Distress marker

- Decorate front surface with rub-ons that look like stitching

 

- Use black Distress marker to draw drop-shadows under rub-ons

- Smudge with fingertip

- Ink edges of piece with walnut Distress ink

- Adhere a couple of 'chit chat' words

- Use black Distress marker to draw around the words

- Smudge with fingertip

 

- Use Black Distress marker to draw in a 'stand' for the cutout


 

 

And here is my finished piece:


This piece is about 4 1/2 x 8 (I say this from guestimates NOT measuring).
