This month the techniques are Mono printing and Embossed Paste! I've looked at them both before, tried the mono printing but never actually got it to my liking. But hey, if you first don't succeed... Embossed Paste I've only looked at, and liked, but never tried. So that's a new one. The mono printing I've done before was with Distress Stains and Distress Paint, I think the fact that they are too fluid made it squish out more then I liked, but this time I did as he did and used the Distress Inks and then misted them with a bit of water and it worked perfectly. SOOOO pleased! And the Embossed Paste was actually pretty easy, just takes some patience since you have to wait for the medium/paste to dry before you actually use your heat tool on the embossing. But when it was done it looked amazing. IMG_7570_2 And of course since I liked it so much I made 2 tags and 2 cards with the same technique. If I like something I can't just try it one time. 😀 Tim Holtz used more brown-ish colors on most of his projects, but since I like strong bold colors I went for some really colorful creations this time! Check them out and let me know what you think!

  1. Awesome job! I love how you took Tim’s tag and turned it into your own. Such nice vibrant colours and I especially love the black, really pops out on the tags. My favourite is the birthday tag.
