Discovering Curiosity - explore and inspire
I am so pleased to be joining in Tim's remix this month as I have had to miss a couple due to deadlines etc and today instead of a tag I have made a stand up card.
I don't have all the materials Tim used so it was a real experiment but I did have the plain tissue wrap and stamped my own design using the documented and perspective sets, adding some words to help set the scene.
The tissue was adhered to card with the vintage collage medium that Tim used and then the plaid background is a sheet of canvas from a canvas pad and although it bled a little with the inks I like the effects it made. I used peacock feathers and faded jeans distress inks and then when it was all put together I used a gathered twigs distress marker to edge the edges of the boxes and some antique linen and walnut stain with a water brush to add a bit of ageing to them.
I also used the sewing machine, Tim is getting much more confident in using it now, and I zig-zagged around the card from word to word.
I don't have the dapper die and recently I have been having fun using the mosaic die (that project is not due till late July I am afraid) and using it as a flat mini configurations frame.
All I needed to finish the project were some bits and pieces to fill the boxes and to balance the card.
I used alcohol inks on the metal pieces, the star and a little on the acrylic blocks over the photobooth ladies.
Mounted on covered mountboard (I used a piece from the Wallflower stash) .....
..... and an easel on the back .....
.... and we have a stand up card for someone special.
All the details of Tim's tag and his remix instructions can be found on his blog and if you're ever looking for a dash of inspiration and some ideas to get you motivated then these tags are the place to go.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the comments about my DecoArt project on the last post, also a big warm welcome to my new followers.
Ok I will be back Friday with two posts as it's the first of the month and I will also be on my way to Coventry to join the gang for Dare to Create - if you follow on Face Book I am sure you will have heard all about it. A weekend of workshops with Andy Skinner and Tracy Weinzapfel and lots of lovely people I know are going.
Off to get more projects made as I am starting to get behind on my schedule - must get a move on, but first I must also link this to Tim's June Remix post on his blog.
Take care and huge hugs.

Brenda, I love your creative take on Tim's tag, and it appears so much work went into it! I love how the inks bled a little on your canvas backing; it adds to the whole creative idea. Great idea to use those acrylic blocks...I never can remember to use mine. You truly gave the look of age to these little embellishments! LOVE! And the quirky stitching from word to word! The perfect detail! I would love to be the "someone special" to receive this beauty of a card! Well done, as always! Hugs!
A fabulous way to use Tim's techniques! Love those colours! Hugs, Chrisx
