12 Tags of 2016 – February

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!

When you get new stuff you just HAVE to try it out right away, you just can't let it lay there without seeing what it can do. So ofcours I made a few tags. IMG_7345 I so love that stamp and die from Tim Holtz, the one with the party hat and "Happy Birthday", totally my favorite. And of course I've used Tim Holtz stencils and Distress Paint on these. Also the Deer die from "Kort & Godt" is really cute. Here you can get a closer look on the tags.

Just a few days into the new year I got my spark back. I was sick and I wanted to do something where I didn't have to think so much, and making tags is the best way. You can just be free and add whatever you want, not having to worry about how it ends up. I love this about scrapping. Here are the tags I made my "first day back" in the new year.

12 Tags of 2016 – January

This is gonna be my year of creativity! I've already made a bunch of tags and cards, and I'm gonna show you them in future posts.

Also gonna try to be way more active with showing off my stuff here on the blog, and that will also be updated a bit from here on out... i hope!

So about the title, "12 Tags of 2016". Tim Holtz have this thing where he makes 12 tags during the year, one each month, and you can link your tag on his site and he picks out some winners every month. So I decided to join up, forces me to be a bit more creative and try new techniques here and there.

So this is my tag: IMG_7341
