Hello all, welcome back to the blog. For today's post I have been working on the 12 Tags of 2014 for July
Make sure to check out Tim's blog for the awesome tutorial
So for this month's tag I had such a great time making the postcards (remember I'm doing postcards each month?) that I thought, this would make a perfect Artist Trading Block too, there has been an Artist Trading Block Craze lately, thanks to Eileen Hull and Sizzix for making these, they are so fun to play with.
If your curious make sure to check out the Artist On The Block Blog for some fun and amazing ideas and inspiration
I must say that Tim really put so many techniques into this month's tag and I had such a great time experimenting.
For the background I started with my postcards and they turned out so beautiful, I just love the way the layering of Distress paint and distress inks and up looking like water
I didn't take many photos of my process because Tim explains it all on his site HERE but I did take loads of photos of the finished postcards and Artist Trading Block
For the Top side and back side of my block I used the "Waves" embossing folder and the other sides I used the "bubble" folder
Of course I had to do my postcards as well
I just really love how these turned out, I think this month is my very favorite of this year's tags so far
