Afternoon : Today I needed to do something creative. You know those days where you need something happy; making things makes me happy. So I decided to a make my July tag for the Tim Holtz's 12 of 2016. I know a shocker but, for this one my idea came fast. I love those cityscape stamps by Stampers Anonymous & Tim Holtz, so I dug them out and just started playing. I am usually inspired by colors before anything else, how about you guys/gals? So I looked online to see the colors of the city. Cracked Pistachio is the perfect distress color for the Statue of Liberty and the top of 40 Wall Street. From there I continued water coloring with different Distress pens and then used a gel glitter pen to add a little sparkle. When I was done painting I dried the picture. Which for once I did on the smooth side of the watercolor paper. I added Distress Glaze and rubbed off the extra with a paper towel. Next thinlet time where I cutout my words on a craft tag and used a craft knife to make a belly band to slide my watercolor picture in. Next add a few Ideology items and twine. This was a fun tag to make. I'm going to laminate this and use it on my luggage.
