We're nearly through the month
already.............Where has the
time gone? I reckon there must
be a big black hole dedicated to
time - it sucks in as much as it
can and leaves us with as little
as it can.................!
Moving swiftly on......... here
is Hazel Harler to share her
journal with us:
"Hi everone, I've had lots of fun playing
with the Tim Holtz Cityscape dies and
have made a journal page with them.
I've had my Distress Oxide ink pads for a
while now but not had time to play with them
so I decided to use them to colour the card
for the buildings.
I pressed the ink pad onto my craft mat
and sprayed it with water then I pressed the card
into the ink.
I dried the first colour and then repeated
the process with the second colour.
I repeated the process a few more times
drying each coloure before adding the next.
This is the finished card and the inks that I used.
Some more card that I coloured.
I used an old credit card and some
Fresco Finish paint to colour the page.
Some of the die cuts.
I was going to paint a couple of roads
but decided to use tissue tape instead,
then I started to add the buildings
I used a black marker on the edges of the
buildings before adhering them to the page,
I used dimentional tape to adhere the buildings,
trees and cars at the bottom of the page
and I added some remnent rubs and word stickers.
I found the quote on the internet."
"Every city is a living body"
Distress Oxide ink pads.
Watercolour paper for the die cuts.
Fresco Finish paints.
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Cityscape Thinlits dies.
Dimensional double sided tape.
Black marker pen.
Thanks Hazel - no pun intended
but this is right up my street.
The use of the tissue tape to
form the road is brilliant
I am certainly inspired to get my dies out
not to mention my bit box - have you
got one of these? It is full of bits of
paper and card that are too nice to
throw away but not always big enough
for a project.
