My Little Handy Man

I have really been enjoying May Flaum's class at BPS! Here I have a tag that I made...again while playing around! I misted the background with Tattered Angels Pumpkin spice mist and used an argyle template with midnight blue staz on ink. Then added some stamped and punched images with Tim Holtz tiny attatcher and a gear.
For the layout i made, I lightly misted the background with pumpkin spice and then the corners with Tim Holtz denim color wash! I also used some wood letters and used a text stamp with brown staz on ink! I also stamped the arrow strip using Teresa Collins He Said stamp!
Supplies: Heidi Swapp vintage chic bookkeeping paper; No Limits schematic paper; DCWV the guy stack; Teresa Collins he said stamp and decorative brads; Tattered Angels pumpkin spice mist, Tim Holtz ransom mask and denim color wash and tiny attatcher; staz on timber brown ink pad; pinkpaislee timber wood shop letters.

I have loved playing with colors and mists and stamps and different mediums!

Misted Tags

Well, to get myself back into the swing of being crafty, I treated myself to an on line class at Big picture Scrapbooking! I am currently taking May Flaum's The Curious Scrapbookers Field Guide class... Just the inspiration I need to get me bak on track and to use supplies that I haveon hand! Don't get me wrong, I have bought a few new goodies!!
This week we are learning to use our mists... Here are two of my favorite tags that I created using different techniques. The brown tag is a tri color base that I used mist with water and a brush, then stenciled with a mist and added stamped flowers that were misted as well! The bird tag is a stamped image and then painted using mists and water again and the background was misted as well. I also added a stamped and misted flower and some other misted pieces as well!
I am so pleased with the end results and I ha so much fun just being crafty again!
