More Texture

I made another tag for the Texture theme at Tag Tuesday. I call it "2 heads are better than one".

I began by covering a #8 size tag with orange Basic Grey paper. I then added a strip of BG material. I tore a strip of cardboard and adhered it to the tag. I layered an old piece of stamped paper on top of that, a few staples, some pink dyed tissue paper, metal number 2 and german scrap to trim the bottom of the tag. The two faces were added last. One is a paper clay face and the other is a stamped phrenology head with added wings.

Happy Father's Day!

Today I'm sharing a card dedicated to fathers. It uses Gecko Galz products and is on the GG blog today.

The background paper is from the Roads Less Traveled & Timeless paper packs. I cut the world landmarks into three rectangles and pieced them onto the Timeless paper (blue paper with the crown). The father & son image is from the Man O'Man collage sheet, as are the words "World's Greatest Dad". The world is die cut from a Tim Holtz die (Sizzix).

It's circus time at Gecko Galz! I made a card and 3 ATC's - all featuring clowns. All the clown images are from the Clowning Around collage sheets.

I also made two patriotic cards. These images are from the Stars and Stripes collage sheets.

New theme at Tag Tuesday for the next 2 weeks is "Texture", chosen by Wendy. My tag is all pink and uses dry embossing, twine and pearls for texture. The lady is cut from Gecko Galz paper with a Sizzix die. The tag top was punched with a Stampin' Up punch.

Please join us and link up a texture tag of your own - we'd love to have you!

New Theme @ Tag Tuesday

Hi, everyone! We have a new theme at Tag Tuesday - Animals!! Today I'm sharing the first of many tags I made.

I've switched Ranger designers today and am featuring a tag using products from Dyan Reaveley. Last week I was able to take two classes from Dyan - let me tell you, she is a fantastic teacher!! This tag was painted using her line of Dylusions paints. They go on smoothly and dry quickly. The cat stamp is also from Dyan, as is the quote.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tim Holtz!

As I'm sure you can tell from my posts and the products I love to use - I am a really big Tim Holtz fan!!! The new Distress Oxide inks of his are awesome! My sister and I are having loads of fun using them.

I made 2 more tags for Tag Tuesday's "Anything Goes" theme. For the first one, I used only Distress Oxide inks and then stamped on the tag with Tim's butterfly stamp.

I made the second tag using a mix of Distress Inks and Distress Oxide inks. I love the background this made!
