Today I'm sharing the tag I made for Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of 2012 -- for August (what's left of it). I just used similar type products that I happened to have on hand. And you can too...he shares his ideas for putting together a variety of techniques, and it's all in how you're inspired to create. My creation is a reminder of our past visit to The Louvre, in Paris, France -- while we were stationed in England. The actual Mona Lisa by daVinci is really much smaller than I had envisioned (30" x 21"), and is encased by photo resistant glass -- yet still quite amazing to see in person...if you're actually able to get close enough to gaze at it. =)
My tag recipe includes: TH Sketch stamps (frame), SU Classic Captions stamps (Mona Lisa & sentiment), TH Damask embossing folder, Clare Ultimo poetry dog tags (inked w/caramel alcohol ink & black paint dabber), TH Ribbon Roses (colored w/weathered wood, vintage photo & fired brick (distress stains) DS), Pool paint dabber, Zing black EP, black Archival ink, white seam binding colored with Broken China DS, and Distress Inks: antique linen, tea dye, & vintage photo. And finally...misted with Sunflower Sparkle perfect pearl mist (my favorite)!
Thanks for stopping by...
Don't forget to smile today! Lisa
