Hi! Welcome back to Tuesday with Tara!
Today I’ve got a fun mixed media/altered project to share with you featuring some BRIGHT and fun Ranger products by Tim Holtz & Dina Wakley. I was going for a summer celebration with this piece, and all the colors and textures bring a smile when I look at it! I hope it brings a smile your way too…
This project started as a tag, but once I finished it I decided to keep going, playing with more paints, texture paste, stencils and such on a 5×7 piece of cardstock. I enjoyed just playing without a goal in mind as far as finished project, and it definitely got me experimenting with products (even some glitter, which is not the norm for me! I mixed it with Rock Candy Crackle Paint… kinda fun!). When I was done with this, I had a ‘thing’ that I wasn’t sure what to do with… but I noticed a small, sturdy box that was just slightly smaller than 5×7. I painted it up to match the front, which I reinforced a bit and adhered to the box.
Because this was such an organic project, I don’t have any step by step details to share- but I have lots of pictures of the details and I can tell you that I used paints by Dina Wakley, Sizzix dies by Tim Holtz (mini labels and mini sand & sea) assorted stamps & stencils and Ranger’s Texture Paste. The metallic shimmer you see on the dies is from Viva Decor.
Hope you liked my summer brights piece, and I hope it inspires you to take some time to just PLAY and experiment with colors & textures in your stash 🙂 You just might end up creating something you love!
Have a fantastic, creative Tuesday!
