Christmas Tags

Posted by Susan on Sunday, January 27, 2013 in ,
I am really enjoying these Christmas tags, so I made a few more (click on the images to enlarge):

I really like the way this one turned out. I tried a bunch of new techniques for this, including distress ink (yes, I'm a distress ink newbie) and modeling paste for the snow.


Christmas Tag #1

Posted by Susan on Sunday, January 20, 2013 in ,
I got so into making tags I decided to make some Christmas theme ones. Not sure if I will use these myself or give some tags away as gifts for others to use, but for now, I'm just enjoying making them.

Here's my first Christmas tag (click the picture to enlarge):


12 Tags of 2013 - January

Posted by Susan on Sunday, January 20, 2013 in , ,
For the first time ever I decided to try and participate in the Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013. I've never done tags before, but they are so much fun I can guarantee I'll be doing more.

Here is the Tim Holtz tag for January that we were supposed to model ours after »

Here is my version (click on it for a larger image):

My initial tag is a little smaller than the original I think, so my design is a slightly scaled down version of the original.


Clocks - Multi Media Canvas Painting

Posted by Susan on Thursday, January 10, 2013 in , ,
Happy New Year everyone.

Well, I finally did it. I've had a bunch of canvases and paints for a while and have just always been too scared to take the plunge and pick up the brush. I promised myself in 2013 that I would try new art mediums. It made sense that the first one be painting/mixed media canvas....after all, I already had all the supplies.

So, here it is folks! I apologize for the lighting. I took this photograph in the evening without any natural sunlight. Click on the photo below to get a closer look.

At first it started out pretty flat but in the end, with all the layers, I think it turned out pretty well. Comments are welcome, let me know what you think.
