Fabric Elements Art Banner

I know I promised weeks ago to post this banner, but I got so excited about Creative Chemistry class that I forgot!  This is a smaller canvas piece than the last one I made.  This is about 7 inches long and the other panel was 12.  I really enjoyed working on the smaller size.  
I used some vintage German Scrap on the top.  It's such a wonderful heavy paper and there are a million shades of gold in there.  
The background is Tim Holtz tissue wrap ironed on to the canvas.  I colored the tissue using distress stains and inks.  I flicked black and white acrylic paint all over it.  Isn't this girl just lovely? I printed her on cardstock and fussy cut her out.  The butterfly wing is from a Dover clip art book.  Mirrored stars are colored with Mushroom alcohol ink for a vintage feel.  
Once all my pieces were glued down I went in with my fude ball pen and added some scribbles.  
Here is the completed banner one more time.  

What have you been crafting?

Summer of Creative Chemistry Week 2

This week I made two tags.  The first tag uses the stamping with stains technique.

The second tag uses the marbled stains technique, watercoloring with markers, stamping with markers, and a bit of layered misting.

There's still plenty of time to sign up! Even if you've been using Tim Holtz products for years it is well worth the price.

Back to school

I love finding out new ways to use my supplies.  I also love rediscovering old techniques I have forgotten over the years.  I just signed up for Tim Holtz's Summer of Creative Chemistry over on Online Card Classes.  I did Creative Chemistry 101 and 102 a couple years ago.
Now, Tim will  be offering Creative Chemistry 103 and is having returning students go back to review past techniques.  This week he wanted us to go back and review a couple of days and make a project using just a few items.


Here's my tag and my review of the techniques.  You can sign up at any time and it is so worth the price.  
Have you signed up?
