Tim Holtz is busy posting his tutorials for 12 days of Christmas tags. You don't want to miss this chance to see new ways of using supplies by a master teacher!
I thoroughly enjoyed working on the tutorials last holiday and have enjoyed the first 3 so far this season.
This first tag features Tim's new masks. They are very large in size but this shows how they can be used effectively on smaller items too. I love Tim's technique of spritzing the distress ink to allow it lightly color and soften the look of the mask. Also tried out some new grungeboard from his botanical set with the new distress stickles. What a fun tutorial to give a jump start on the holidays.
Tag 2 features a variety of blue alcohol inks and silver mixture spread on a craft sheet with glossy paper moved on top. Also used a splatter brush to add some white flecks over all (very difficult to see in this picture).
Tag #3 features the use of a fragment piece to spotlight Santa's face and one of Tim's metal tags. This new combination of stamped images for me was lots of fun and of course playing with the distress inks and Inkessentials white pen.
Thanks for looking...and know I hope to follow several more tutorials during the 12 days so stop back soon.
