Yes, I'm working on Christmas! Found this the other day at Hobby Lobby and used my 40% off coupon and one Christmas gift is done!

I used papers that were in my stash. I know. Hard to believe! It came together very quickly. Hardest part was cutting out all of the box fronts!

Next up is to get my Christmas cards done. I just need to fina a layout I like.

12 Tags of 2012-July

Time once again for Tim's12 Tags of 2012, the July version!

I got to see him demo the brayer technique on Sunday at StampFest Orlando! First time I've gotten to see him demo in person since he doesn't do any demos when he's reaching. Course I could have stood there all day and watched "The Master" at work, but we needed to get home. Vacation was a blast and once I get my gozillion pictures sorted, I'll be doing a post on that!

I used one of Dyan's silhouette stamp retro dress images because I needed a more feminine image to go with the quote I wanted to use, but did the technique as Tim describes in his blog post. I kept my background soft by using Broken China, Victorian Velvet and Dried Marigold Distress Stains. I went around my quote and the dress with my Stablio Black pencil then softened the hard lines a bit with some water.
