I've been playing along with the Tim Holtz tags of 2014! April was a fun tutorial. I finally learned how to make the pinecone roses! I've had the die for a long time, but was never very good at making the roses. They always turned out like skinny pinecones when I made them before.
Here is a link to the youtube video by CreationsByChristie I used to learn how to make them easier.
I made about 20 while I was watching a tv program so I've got it down! Here is my April tag.
The tutorial was great because with a plain tag and some tissue tape, you can look like you are a mixed-media artist in no time! It started out so easy and I was happy with the possibilities. I used different colors of distress paint and you really can't make a mistake. They all look great! Thanks Tim!
The new frameworks dies are very clever and I enjoyed cutting out some cork-paper, and different textures. I made a whole bunch of extras for projects later.
So this was a happy project for me this time. Life is a little challenging for me right now, so it was fun to create and forget about all the other stuff for awhile. Making pretty flowers is good for the soul. I threw in an Eiffel tower as I wish I was in Paris. Someday...
for now have a Happy Easter!
