Hello crafty friends and visitors! Here we are at the end of the summer, and Tim has the perfect Technique Remix to inspire us--Brayered Stain-Frameworks. You can see his gorgeous tag and full instructions here on his blog.
I kept my tag design pretty much like Tim's, choosing my own colors and embellishments. My stain is Stormy Sky and Weathered Wood and my inks are Frayed Burlap and Brushed Corduroy, with edges and splashes in Walnut Stain.
I also used Honeycomb Frameworks--my only frameworks die, but colored it with Evergreen Bough Spray Stain, and Tarnished Brass Distress paint using Tim's Eroded Metallic technique from his Compendium of Curiosities-Volume 3 book. My filler pieces are from an alcohol inked Found Relatives card, cork, Mirrored, and Textile Surfaces and a scrap of woven paper from my stash. The Mirrored hexagon and Mirrored star are colored with Mushroom alcohol ink and the Textile Surfaces are left over from my June tag. The butterfly on my Vial Label is a Remnant Rub. I chose the words "Keep Life Simple" and therefore, chose not to add stitching to my tag, because that complicates life.
Tim's Linen Ribbon and Paper Twine finish off my simple tag. Another look--simple, right?
I would like to submit my tag in the following challenges:
Country View Challenges-August-Hot summer Days This is how my garden looks after a hot dry summer. Lot's of browns and a dark stormy sky most of the time as we wind down into autumn.
Nordsalten Hobbyklubb #144 No Picture No stamped image here-just die cuts.
Allsorts Week #378-Use At Least Two Dies I used Sizzix Honeycomb Frameworks and Sizzix Wildflowers Thinlits dies.
Thank you for stopping by today and for all of your amazing comments! I read and appreciate each and everyone of them!
Hugs and Blessings!
