Creative Chemistry Day 3 Layered Collage


Have to say this is not a favorite final product, but I did learn technique from it.  My tag was covered in Collage Medium-Matte.  To this I added a printed tissue paper and added more Collage Medium.  The next step was to add Ephemera and more Collage Medium.  After this had dried I added Distress Crayons to give color.

Creative Chemistry Day 2 Rub Resist

Day Two of Creative Chemistry 103 had a Rub Resist using Remnant Rubs.  For this tag I used Remnant Rubs-Life quotes and then added Distress Stains:  Forest Moss, Wild Honey and Fire Brick.  This was then spritzed with water.  I decided to add a little touch and stamped one of the new Mini-Crazy dogs with Archival Ink.  This little dog reminds me of a four legged friend in my household (Minnie).  Am so having fun with Creative Chemistry 103 and all of the techniques that Tim Holtz has presented.  Hope you ejoy

Distress Crayon Resist

This tag was made for Day 4 of the OCC Creative Chemistry 103.  It is a Distress Crayon resist.  Using the Picket Fence and a Tim Holtz Mini Stencil the crayon was rubbed by hand onto a tag.  This was allowed to dry (it takes a long time) before color was added.  Using Distress Inks color was applied to the tag and rubbed off the stenciled area with a baby wipe.  Love the look this gives and a new use for my Distress Crayons.  Hope you enjoy.

Day 2 Paint Lifting Technique

This tag was made for the Online Card Class Creative Chemistry 103 Day 2.  It is a paint lifting technique.  The card was covered with fossilized amber and this was allowed to dry.   Using several other color with Tim Holtz mini-stencil the paint lifting took place.  One color would be placed down and a stencil over it.  Using a baby wipe the paint was lifted off.  When done black soot was used to speckle the tag.  A fun technique.  Hope you enjoy
