Tuesday with Tara {take 36}

Happy Tuesday!  It’s becoming clear to me that Easter is early this year… so I thought I’d share a bit of Easter inspiration with you today!  This is a tag I made inspired by techniques by Tim Holtz, I’ve always loved his ’12 tags’ series and taking the techniques to create my own unique tag using the materials that I have on hand.  I’ve been a bit slack keeping up with them… but as I look at projects from previous years, it inspires me to continue!  And I have to say I love his ‘remix’ theme this year, giving a fresh take to older tags!


Here’s the tag that inspired mine- as you can see I made a few changes, including adding an Easter image, which is an image from one of Tim’s seasonal paper pads.  I did follow the background technique (using tissue tape, Distress Paint & Distress Ink), so you can check that out on his blog since he’s already given excellent instructions 🙂  I used a paper punch that had a similar design to the die and assorted Prima flowers instead of creating my own.  Of course I added some Crinkle Ribbon into the mix!  Here’s a couple close ups for you:



And here’s a bonus card I created with extra supplies from my tag:


I love using those extra bits to create a mini tag, and then turning it into a card 🙂

Tuesday with Tara {take 35}

Happy Tuesday!  I’m glad you’re here today!  It’s March 1, the sun is shining where I’m at and it’s got me thinking about spring and bright colors and inky fingers and other things that make me smile…

Congrats!  Contact us with your mailing address and we’ll get your feather stencil sent off to you!

Today we’re moving from feathers to BIRDS- just a little crazy bird today 🙂  I mixed up another custom paste for my background using a couple shades of Distress Ink and Transluscent paste and a generous amount of chunky glitter by American Crafts.  I stamped my sentiment first, then placed the Crafter’s Workshop stencil over it and applied paste with a palette knife.  Once the paste was dry, I sprinkled some Color Burst over it and spritzed.  It made a fun background!

My crazy bird was also colored with a mix of Color Burst and Distress Markers, then finished off with a generous amount of Stickles Glitter Glue 🙂
