Can you believe it's the last day of March?! Wow...it seems like it just flew away. And -- no different than last month, I'm posting my March tag, for Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2012, on the last day. I'm just glad I made it. =)
I must confess, I wasn't too sure about trying this mosaic technique -- in fact, I had my doubts I'd even like it when I finished. But I'm definitely a believer now. I love it! It did take more time that I usually like to take (I'm rather impatient waiting for glue to dry), but the results are so cool -- it really feels like a grouted mosaic. Check out Tim's blog HERE for step-by-step instructions on how to complete this amazing transformation.
I changed mine up just a bit by using a pre-cut grungeboard butterfly, and black embossing powder for the grout (which I flicked off quite a bit to give it a gravelly look). I also added tissue tape after tinting it with fired brick stain -- wiping most of it off to give it a pink hue, and making a portion of it into a mini paper flower. The quote stamp I used is from TH Flights of Fancy.
Any plans for April Fools tomorrow? One year I put a rubber-band around the kitchen sink faucet sprayer and got my husband and both boys really wet when they turned on the faucet. I thought it was funny, but they didn't really share my sentiment. LOL
Ah well, life is fun -- enjoy it! Lisa
