July Mixed Media Tag Swap - All About Stencils......

I am a member of a nice little group over at Ning called Art and Sassy. Have been a member there for a month or two now and have just finished my first swap (I still need to post it to the swap organiser) 

Every month there is a Mixed Media Tag Swap, this month is.....

All About Stencils!

Here is my creation:


- Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers Large Die (Tag & Bookplate)
- Corrogated Cardboard Box
- Heidi Swap 6x6 Lattice Stencil
- Reeves Modeling Paste
- Liquitex Gesso
- Beading Wire
- Tim Holtz Ideology Muse Tokens
- Tim Holtz Ideology Pen Nibs
- Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
- Zig Glue Pen
- Kraft Cardstock
- Walnut Stain Distress Ink
- Twine

I was aiming for a basic tag with little embelishments and mediums yet still have a good overall effect, hence the reason I used corrogated card (it was actually a box that had one of my son's birthday presents in it, I tend to keep all kinds of boxes)

After finding out that the Tim Holtz Tag Die cuts through corrogated cardboard, and even chipboard, I have realised that my tag making possibilities are endless and will probably never buy another packed of precut tags again.

Hope you like my creation, and stay tuned for more...........
