12 Tags of 2012-March

T!m's got a cool new technique for the March tag! Check it out t!m's March tag. In staying with the Spring theme, but going away from butterflies, I decided to use both t!m AND Dyan images and do another page in my Art Journal. So for
t!m's side I used Umbrella Man.Cut him out and since I don't have any of the Ranger sticky tape, I used the red stuff, not knowing if it would work for this technique or not. And it DID! I used regular black embossing powder to do in between my paper pieces. And it worked too! I used stormy skies and broken china Distress Stains for the "sky" and wild honey and vintage photo for the "ground". Once dry, I flicked it with water and used a CTMH rain stamp, then came back in with Diamond Stickles on the rain. Used a crackle stamp on the ground. Colored my seam binding with dried marigold and spun sugar Distress Inks and left it all wadded up and dried it with my heat gun to keep the wrinkled look. Used the gears die to cut the large gears then found a flower and leaf in my stash and used Paint Dabbers to paint them then sanded off the high spots. I printed the quote from my printer and distressed and cut out each individual word.

For the Dyan side, I used one of the faces, legs and arm from Travelling Travis and a piece of scrap material for her "dress". Used a CTMH stamp set for the umbrella. Really liked my brainstorm of an idea to use the Liquid Enamel and Alcohol Inks for the rain boots, so this time the color is Denim. The rest of the image was colored using PrismaColor pencils, odorless mineral spirits and a stub. Found another set of flowers in my stash, so painted them with Paint Dabbers as well and sanded the high spots on them. The "fragile" quote is also from my stash.
