Lastly I did a tag that was using the same CTMH stamp set and changed it up to try white embossing powder and Victorian Velvet Distress Paint. This reminds me of the chalkboard look, I cut this out and will be adding it to a journaling card. I might add another layer of paint, we shall see... What do you think of this?
For this tag I used Barn Door Distress Paint and same Close to My Heart stamp set. I added the sweet and outlined the small label with Signo white gel pen, my all time favorite! I am thinking I will be using this as a Project Life card.
I took Tim Holtz's Creative Chemistry class 102 (By the way 101 and 102 are the best and WELL worth the money) this past week and this is the first chance I have gotten to play with it. So hopefully this week (although it is not too promising) I will get a chance to try a few more techniques. First of all Tim makes everything look easy and I am so glad I have the videos to watch over and over and over (I am sure you get the drift but it will be a lot!)... I wanted to start with Day 5 since I had just recently seen this but unfortunately the only one I had the supplies for was the shabby chic which is not too much my style but wanted to try for fun! I started with black paper not too thick and I think I would like to try it again with thicker cardstock and trying to paint black first. I also only had extra fine clear instead of the regular so that would have been better too. So my first try I used Mama Elephant Filigree (I am in love with this stamp~just so you know <3! and clear embossing powder, heat set and then put distress paint salty ocean on and wiped away after a bit. Very fun but putting the paint on with the blending tool is going to take some practice for me not as easy as it looked when Tim did it! So my first one is here:

I love the concept of doing a week in our life because it is hard to remember what really did happen. Sometimes I think it will be this way for a long time...but alas time does go super fast and it is always fun to look back at these pages.
