I am on hair curling duty later, Shannon is off out to a Youth Gala :-)
But before I have to do that, I thought I would spend sometime in the craft room, just for me :-)
I thought I would get a little messy and have a go at the Tim Holtz Tag for January. Now I can't guarantee that I will do any more. But, it's a start!
I don't have a lot of the correct products, but I gave it a go.
I did have the #8 tag, but the only type foil I had was some sticky back shelf liner!
So, I used the shelf liner and then embossed the tag with a Darice Steampunk embossing folder. And then using Tim's industrial technique for the metal I used the Distress Paint Black Soot.
Now, do you think I could find a bit of chalk for the chalkboard element - nope, more on that in a minute.
After embossing the Stampendous Steampunk Owl in Ranger extra fine embossing powder (I didn't have what Tim recommended), what do you think I used for the chalk board effect?
Have you guessed what I used instead of chalk? Well, I used good old talc! It did end up everywhere though. But at least my tag smells nice LOL!
I added a little metal arrow and Dream tag, which I painted with a little of the Distress Paint Picket Fence.
I couldn't resist adding a little layer to his hat and fob watch, and wanted a little bit of colour :-)
So, I know I wasn't able to get exactly the effect Tim did, but I'm pleased with how it turned out.
And of course, whilst I was tidying up - what did I find - some white chalk! Ah well, I know for next time LOL!
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend.
Thanks for stopping by today.
